Fat Saigon Boy
At this Aussie-Vietnamese Ann Siang Hill joint, Melbournian Cang Lai cooks up rice and noodle dishes topped with chargrilled lemongrass pork ($13), Vietnamese-style chicken ($13), as well as hulking bowls of pho ($13) and snack-sized portions of Vietnamese fish cake ($8/three), chilli chicken wings ($8/four) and rice paper rolls with roast pork belly ($8/two). Homesick Aussies will appreciate chugging down bottles of Coopers with their meal.
Opening in mid-December 2015 This Singapore outpost of London pork-heavy tapas joint, Dehesa, is all about 'swine, wine and dine'. After stints at Bomba Paella Bar and UNA, chef Jean-Philippe Patruno leads the kitchen that'll turn out nose-to-tail interpretations for the intrepid diner when it opens in December.
Opening in December 2015 Chefs David Almany and Ariana Flores tap on their Italian roots and fresh seasonal produce from their Californian hometowns to put together meals that hope to hark of an Italian family table. Pastas are made by hand with custom Angeleno flour from the Abruzzo region of Italy, and are deployed in dishes like squid ink linguine with New Zealand clams and spicy local chillis. Also expect signatures like the tomahawk pork chop grilled over almond wood and flavoured with Tuscan olive oil and wild fennel pollen, and the Italian-American Lobster Fra Diavolo classic with Maine lobster, spicy tomato sauce, breadcrumbs, lemon zest and fresh herbs.
After comfort food and Asian-flavoured burritos, Texas-style barbecue is Min Chan's next food playground. Decker Barbecue is a collaboration between the young restaurateur and Texan expat and owner of Bali's Smokehouse BBQ, Elliott Decker, and the cooking is all about the the low-and-slow. As a result, the menu is kept simple with just five to six meats – cuts include beef brisket and ribs, sausages, pulled pork and chicken – cooked languidly overnight in wafts of sizzling lychee, apple, oak, and more.
Prive at the Asian Civilisations Museum
Prive's affection for the waterside carries through in its new Asian Civilisations Museum location by the Singapore River. This all-day venue angles itself towards the sightseeing, CBD, happy-hour and theatre-going crowds with its different food and drink permutations. The busy CBD denizen can rush by for takeaway sandwich and salad or soup combos ($18), and those heading for a show at the Victoria Theatre can check in for quick servings of dishes like pot-roasted chicken leg ($24), pan-roasted sea bass ($27), seafood laksa ($17), and the restaurant's garlic and bacon signature burger ($27). Families ambling through the Civic District should also capitalise on the Awesome Family Four-some ($40) that serves up two full-sized mains, two kids mains and two slices of cake from a selection of dishes on the lunch and brunch menus. During happy hour, from 5 to 8pm, a Chilean Noblesse Sauvignon Blanc 2014 goes for $9 a glass, a Merlot by the same winery at $9, and Tiger at $9 a glass.
