The Japanese celebrated chef, Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa, is a matchmaker of Japanese cooking and Peruvian flavours; his cooking style blends the culinary heritage of Japan and the Inca land. With his new restaurant opening at Four Seasons Hotel Singapore on 1 June 2022, Asia-based discerning diners no longer need to fly over to Las Vegas or Chicago to get a taste of Nobu. Nobu Singapore will delight you with flavoursome fusion bites.

Lumbre, meaning fire in Spanish, is a Spanish restaurant led by live fire. Here’s where the pristine produce of the land and the sea comes together with the waltz of flames. Whether you like your food cooked on an open fire grill or in a Josper Charcoal oven, expect smokiness as an extra aroma and flavour in all the items you order here.

This South California/Italian restaurant offers beautiful, mouth-walloping mashups of the two cuisines. Must-taste items include Anchovy Doughnut, Grilled Calamari, Meatballs al Angeleno, Smoked Bucatini and Chicken Fra Diavolo.

Having to make decision of what to get at The Coconut Club can get one to go coocoo. The all-day dining venue with all-things-lemak menu offers everything, from rich rendang to sour and spicy asam pedas, to go with their fragrant, coconut milk-enriched rice. Their Charcoal-grilled Kaya Toast and an array of house-made kueh are also must-orders, to complete the Coconut Club experience. 

Although the brand itself has been around for quite some time now, The Coconut Club has just moved to its new home that sits within a historical shophouse on Beach Road, Singapore. There, expect a fresher, perhaps even more coconut-y version of the restaurant.
