Restaurant of the Year
Luxury beef specialists in Orchard
There are few things in life that can make me as happy as when I'm indulging in Fat Cow's highly raved Donburi. Its tender & juicy premium Wagyu topped with truffle oil and a perfect onsen egg is just absolute bliss!
Scrumptious all-day breakfast
I always find myself spoilt for choice at Wild Honey. There's always something new to try and each time I'm back, I choose a breakfast cuisine (from over 10 different countries) and find myself transported to that very city.
Gourmet German burger joint
Mervelle, Regional Campaigns:
The beef burgers at HANS IM GLÜCK are basically oozing with flavour. Paired with its fairytale-like ambience, the experience I had was simply out of this world!
New Restaurant of the Year
Modern Peranakan restaurant at Funan Mall
Joshua, Digital Content:
Godmama’s family heirloom recipes and cosy space make it one of my go-to spots for Peranakan fare. I think everyone should have a try at this new spot in Funan! My favourites are the Sambal Udang and Ayam Buah Keluak, which go perfectly with the distinctive Blue Pea Flower-Dyed Rice. YUM!
Many faces of Japanese cuisine at Marina Bay Sands
The moment I walked into KOMA I was completely WOWed. The overall aesthetics of the restaurant was not just limited to its interior — from its food and cocktails to even the tableware, everything was 100% Instagram-worthy.
Modern roast duck restaurant
Cheryl, Account Management:
Boasting a good mix of Western and Asian-style duck-centric dishes, Duckland is simply a Mecca for duck-enthusiasts like myself. Duck is not an easy meat to perfect but Duckland skilfully accomplishes this in their signatures such as whole Roast Irish Duck and the incredibly tasty Duck Confit & Waffle. Every dish is priced reasonably hence it’s definitely a restaurant that I find myself returning to time and again.
Bar of the Year
A "top" microbrewery featuring stunning views of Marina Bay
It's no surprise to me at all that LeVeL33 is taking "Bar of the Year" home. The view is really quite unbeatable, and their craft beers? Top-notch.
Stylish cocktail bar with elegantly chic afternoon tea at The Fairmont Singapore
Wen Bin, Product Design:
ANTI:DOTE is definitely the place to be to liven up your weekend. You can expect deliciously crafted cocktails artistically paired with a wide selection of tapas. My personal go-to cocktail would be "The Thinker".
Mouthwatering fusion favourites
Heng Ling, Operations:
Live music, classic crowd-favourite drinks, an impressive selection of bar food, and great vibes — there's really nothing not to love about Timbre X!
Deal-icious Restaurant of the Year
Gourmet German burger joint
Evelyn, Graphic Design:
I love the set meals at HANS IM GLÜCK! I'd usually pair my burger with some sweet potato fries and a pint of ice cold beer. Another thing I love is the ambience, it truly completes the whole dining experience!
Fan-favourite Cajun seafood
Dancing Crab is the only place where I don't mind getting my hands dirty. Love the freshness of the seafood!
International award-winning ramen joint
THAT. BROTH. 'Nuff said.
Hottest Group Dining
Cracking seafood by way of the American South
Huiyi, Account Management:
During a birthday celebration at The Boiler, I was blown away by the free Boston Lobster that came with our purchase of the "Bombdiggity Bag"! A whole juicy lobster with a bag of fresh seafood drenched in decadent sauce? The Boiler sure knows the way to every seafood-lover's heart.
German bier bar & restaurant
I love Brotzeit for its Crispy Oven-Roasted Pork Knuckle, it is absolutely to die for! Name a more iconic duo than crunchy pork skin coupled with tender juicy meat, I’ll wait.
Myriad of cuisines prepared with local flair
Every true foodie in Singapore would have had New Ubin's USDA Black Angus 'Choice' Rib-eye and Heart Attack Fried Rice at least once since the opening of this crowd-favourite joint. These signature dishes, along with their incredibly fresh seafood, are an absolute treat! My family and I find ourselves coming back here for dinner ever so often.
Cafe of the Year
Third wave coffee and hearty nosh in Bukit Timah
En Xian, Marketing:
Atlas Coffeehouse checks all my boxes for the perfect spot to chill at. Laid-back and casual atmosphere. Stellar brunch menu (I love the Creamy Mushroom on Sourdough!). Amazing coffee. It's no wonder they are always crowded on weekends!
Iconic brunch spot
Consistency is something that I look for when it comes to my pick of favourite restaurants, and PS. Cafe nails it every time. No matter the location, their outlets constantly impress with their food, service and ambience — I’m a sucker for fresh flowers!
Modern bistro serving brunch classics
I love everything about Marmalade Pantry! The food, the ambience, the service — everything's perfect for an ideal weekend brunch date. The Spicy Crabmeat pasta is definitely a must-try, I haven't been able to find another elsewhere that even comes close!
Best Bountiful Buffet
Escape to Eden with an all-day buffet at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore
If you’re looking for a luxurious and decadent buffet spread, The Line should definitely be at the top of your list. With 16 live kitchens, you get freshly prepared servings across an unbelievably wide variety of cuisines. From live oysters and seafood, tandoori dishes, to steaming dim sum, there’s no shortage of great dishes to satisfy any palette!
Seasonal and authentic Italian fare in Regent Singapore
The buffet spread at Basilico is really quite unlike any other — the quality of their food is just amazing. The pastas and pizzas tasted authentically Italian and there's an endless supply of exquisite cheeses, cold cuts, salads and even gelato! Every bite I took brought me right back to Florence.
A true taste of Singapore at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
The ambience at Colony is incredible. Mid-meal, while indulging in the freshest of seafoods and the most delightful dessert spread, I find myself having a dreamily wonderful time with my loved ones. And to top it all off, the service is exactly what you would expect from a 5-star hotel.
Most Romantic Restaurant
A glamourous take on local cuisine at The Fullerton Bay Hotel
It’s truly a magical place — the high ceilings, chandeliers, and sweeping views of Marina Bay made us feel like we stepped into another world. It all felt so open yet private at the same time!
An epicurean escape in a beautifully restored chapel in Dempsey
The entire mood of the restaurant is just perfect for a romantic date night. I know it’s hard to take your eyes off the exquisite interior and the delightful spread but don’t forget to step outside for your Instagram pics at The Rabbit Hole too!
Wholesome Modern Asian fare with a panoramic view of Singapore's skyline
CÉ LA VI has always been my go-to place for R&R: Respite and romance. Sure, there’s always a buzz, but when you’re romancing that iconic view of Singapore from 57 storeys up, nothing else matters. Pro-tip: Book their Sky High Brunch for daytime dancing and drinking.
