Chico Loco, a casual-chic restaurant from the Super Loco and Lucha Loco team, is another great spot to get down and dirty with Mexican foods. Head down for their new dinner menu with table service if you’ve already tried and loved their signature rotisserie chickens.

Begin your meaty meal with Taco de Mysterio, a soft corn tortilla stuffed with secret contents, then dig into their Beef Fillet Steak, a slab of porcini-rubbed Angus fillet amped up with anchi chilli mayo. As for desserts, how about crisp Churros dunked in spiced Mexican chocolate.

Customer Testimonial

Excellent place on Amoy. Really enjoyed the chilled vibe.
Ordered the fish taco, quarter chicken and mango passionfruit juice.
Everything came out very quickly.
I was surprised the fish taco was only the 1 taco. Tacos should come in pairs at least at that size.
Fish was cooked perfectly and crunchy.
Chicken was cooked well and very moist. The dry rub has a good flavour.
This place understand environmentalism – no plastic to be seen, metal utensils and water in a glass bottle.

The food should be a pleasurable activity, and chefs Rishi Naleendra and Gareth Burnett have created a space to reflect that idea.

The overall dining experience is one of the best I got in Singapore. Try the mocktail pairing with the meal. There was so much effort and though in its preparation that makes it so much more interesting than just having the meal with wine. Food presentation and preparation was almost flawless.

Unlike most Korean barbecue restaurants that utilize gas grills, Wang Dae Bak distinguishes itself from the competition by providing charcoal grills, giving the restaurant’s BBQ dishes a distinctive smoky flavor.

Is there anything else we don’t have any gripes about? Free flow egg. You may cook the egg bath surrounding the BBQ plate by having servers pour an egg mixture into a moat surrounding it. But if you’d rather not deal with the work of cooking food yourself, Wang Dae Bak provides a hearty Korean cuisine that includes army stew and kimchi pancake.

Key Differentiators

  • Pocha BBQ
  • Award-winning

Awesome Korean BBQ, recommend by Koreans. It was difficult to get a reservation! Great service, tasty beef and noodle dishes, and fast flowing beer and soju! Only wish we could have continued longer. Excellent night out with friends!

Food was excellent, service was superb. My friend and i shared the Christmas menu and a regular lunch menu. They made sure we had our own platter each time so we could sample from both, and took notice to change the platter regularly. Excellent quality of food for the price! At the end, the Christmas menu was entitled to a free gift, but they offered the gifts to both of us. Very sweet of them. Highly recommended!! ⭐

Along Amoy Street, in the city’s historic core, it is the little things that impress at Kenjiro “Hatch” Hashida’s third, and most recent, iteration of his eponymous restaurant.

The interior is graced with elegant fixtures and personal touches, which begins the journey. Enter through the torii gates and take a seat in one of three dining rooms, each with its own distinct atmosphere. In the eight-seater room, a traditional detached roof peeks through, while an ancient 200-year-old sakura wood beam frames.

Key Differentiators

  • Explore a multitude of inventive creations
  • Served in signature omakase-style
  • Celebrity Chef Kenjiro ‘Hatch’ Hashida

Customer Testimonial

Very very good meal and pleasant experience. Every dish was well prepared , balanced and refined. Little details from the use of Gin pepper on Sushi to caramelized sauce on their signature Monkfish liver has demonstrated effort to bring the flavors to a next level. Service was top notch – other than very attentive staff, the restaurant was also very generous to offer sampling of three sake before I picked my preferred choice. Go Hashida, you won’t regret.

Great dining experience. Wonderful friendly and casual service. Not too stuffy. Small space but more spacious than most izakaya due to social distancing. Love the details given on the food. Proper sushi rice was used. Great ingredients and handled well.
