A huge new Friday-night hit among Singapore’s three Ms (models, media types and the moneyed), restaurant-cum-bar Mimolette is tucked within the Turf Club off Bukit Timah (not far from Sixth Avenue). The colonial-house venue and its tropical-greenery surrounds make for an exotic and exclusive setting – though one can’t help feeling for the stabled horses nearby; the late-night outdoor disco’s pounding R&B numbers must interfere with their sleep. Visit the restaurant for brunch, lunch or dinner, and expect New American-meets-French fare. Executive chef Kelvin Lee has an impressive CV with stints at 3-star Michelin restaurants in France and top regional establishments, though initial reports from disgruntled diners to TOS staffers have pointed to cuisine being ‘overpriced and ordinary’.
