Candlenut Ranks No. 94
The world’s first Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant, Candlenut takes a contemporary yet authentic approach to traditional Straits-Chinese cuisine. The restaurant serves up refined Peranakan cuisine that preserves the essence and complexities of traditional food, with astute twists that lift the often rich dishes to a different level. Helmed by chef Malcolm Lee, Candlenut is committed to continually create inspired and elevated Peranakan dishes using the freshest seasonal produce available.
Address: 17a Dempsey Rd, Singapore 249676
Opening hours: 12pm – 3pm, 6pm – 10pm (Daily)
Esora Ranks No. 77
After spending 15 years in some of the world’s most venerated kitchens including 3-starred Nihonryori RyuGin (Tokyo) and 2-starred Odette (Singapore), Chef Shigeru Koizumi collaborates with The Lo & Behold Group to open his first ever restaurant on Mohamed Sultan Road. Chef Koizumi merges his deep respect and knowledge of traditional Japanese cuisine together with new-found cooking techniques to tease the best possible flavours out of each ingredient. He is inspired by the belief that even one degree of temperature can affect the enjoyment of the dish, leading him to abide by a “one-degree” philosophy throughout the Esora experience.
Address: 15 Mohamed Sultan Rd, Singapore 238964
Opening hours: 6pm – 1030pm, Wednesday; 12pm – 1030pm, Thursday; 530pm – 1030pm, Friday to Sunday; Closed on Monday & Tuesday
Nouri Ranks No. 73
We believe that food does not exist in isolation. All great cuisines are the product of intersecting cultures across time; no food culture would have developed without centuries of movement and collaboration. At Nouri, we study ingredients, techniques, and flavors to identify moments of connection between global food traditions. We innovate from these historical standpoints to produce food rooted in familiar flavors no matter where you are from. That is where crossroads cooking begins. Beyond concept or philosophy, or types of cuisines, Nouri is a place that celebrates people, in all our differences and similarities. A restaurant that nourishes not just body and mind, but the liminal bond between the “you” and the “I”.
Address: 72 Amoy St, Singapore 069891
Opening hours: 1130am – 3pm, 6pm – 12am, Wednesday to Saturday; 6pm – 12am, Sunday & Tuesday; Closed on Monday
Meta Ranks No. 60
Short for metamorphosis, One-Michelin-starred Meta is representative of the ever-changing F&B industry, as well as its culinary team’s evolutionary approach to the menu. At the restaurant, dishes and flavour combinations are reinterpreted to reflect Chef Sun Kim’s experiences. Combining his Korean heritage, Japanese culinary techniques, and Western culinary training, Meta presents innovative and well-balanced dishes that utilise the best seasonal produce and ingredients from around the globe.
Address: 1 Keong Saik Rd., Singapore 089109
Opening hours: 6pm – 830pm, Tuesday & Wednesday; 12pm – 130pm, 630pm – 830pm, Thursday to Saturday; Closed on Monday & Sunday
