This award recognises restaurants that make a rapid impact in Asia’s culinary industry. The results are a simple computation of votes. Given that this well-constructed list is based on personal experiences it can never be definitive, but we believe it is an honourable survey of current tastes and a credible indicator of the best places to eat around the globe. A new dining concept is now available at Hotel, Singapore’s newly renovated Garden Wing. The Waterfall offers healthy yet creative dishes inspired by Mediterranean flavours. Within the eclectic, colonial interiors lies a treasure trove of fresh seasonal produce. Food was amazingly good and the staff were very apologetic and did explain the reason for the delay. We will definitely return as the food was very authentic and reasonably priced for Singapore.

I try to provide receipts whenever possible so you can see dates visited and cost of food but this is not always available as some meals are eaten in kopitiams (therefore no receipts) while others are treats from friends who may not want to share the cost with me or any of the invited guests. I do not get many food tasting sessions (where food is free) and even that do not and will not influence my opinions. That said, I do encounter ordinary foods but great services and share them all the same if I think they deserve my space and your valuable time here. Shiok. Sedap. Delicious.

Chicken rice stalls abound Best restaurants in Singapore. In a hawker center alone, there are not one, but many, chicken rice stalls. Which to choose? Head of course for the one with the longest queue. For an easier bite, look out for stalls that offer boneless chicken where the meat has already been de-boned. For crabs, order the really big Sri Lankan ones. Have them done in different styles – steam, fried with black pepper or chilli sauce. If you order Best restaurants in Singapore chilli crabs, be sure to ask for bread to slurp up the delicious sauce.
