Bago at Lime House

Caribbean chill comes to town in the form of this laid-back cocktail joint with a serious love for rum, rhum and ron (respectively, British-, French- and Spanish-style rums). More than 150 types of rum and rum infusions deck the bar, which you can enjoy neat or shaken up in a cocktail. There’s the Chris Morris ($27), named after the owner’s preference for Mount Gay Black Barrel mixed with coconut water and cinnamon syrup, as well as the sweet-sour-spicy Caribbean Queen ($22), with rosemary, mango, lime and Diplomatico Reserva.

Ippin Café Bar

The richness of Peranakan flavours is combined with the minimalistic style of Japanese cuisine and fresh Japanese ingredients in the dishes served at Singapore’s first Peranakan-Japanese fusion restaurant. Sample their version of the classic nonya laksa ($24) but made with oysters frozen and shipped in from Hiroshima, or sip on a comforting bowl of bean curd meatball soup ($10) that uses a Japanese miso soup base. Sides include a light cucumber and pineapple nonya salad ($5) drizzled with a punchy dressing of sake, wasabi and yuzu, as well as fried chicken marinated in turmeric, ginger and sake ($10).

Fratelli – Trattoria and Pizzeria

Set up by Enrico and Roberto Cerea from the three Michelin-starred Da Vittorio restaurant in Italy, Fratelli – Trattoria and Pizzeria serves pipping hot pizzas made from scratch all day and authentic Italian cuisine for dinner only. Signature pizzas include the Baccalà ($36), which is mozzerella cheese and cured cod fish on a thin crust, and the Mare ($68) with scampi, red prawns, scallops, white clams and squids. The trattoria dinner menu features homemade ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese topped with black truffle shavings ($36), and desserts such as a traditional Italian pannacota ($16) and a modern tiramisu cake ($18).

Salted and Hung

This contemporary restaurant has roots from Down Under and sets itself up to be a meat lover’s paradise – it's all about cured and grilled meats here. With executive chef Drew Nocente in charge of the kitchen, expect a carnivorous menu that includes pork and duck confit ($15), fermented kangaroo tartare with beets and juniper ($16), and grilled Blackmore wagyu beef ribs topped with quinoa and pomegranate ($42). Roasted greens are the sides best paired with the meaty mains: there's romanesco and watercress in burnt butter ($14), among others, to pick from. Otherwise there’s the classic trio of tomatoes, burrata and basil ($12) and the more unexpected duo of squid ink and mashed potatoes ($10). For dessert, go hard on Aussie classics such as peanut butter Tim Tams (for a whopping $14) and chocolate salami slices topped a scoop of salted caramel ice cream ($16).
