Looking for a restaurant that will tantalise your taste buds and your senses? With decor that evokes Peranakan chic, Spanish cheer and country charm, these three hot dining spots recommended by MediaCorp CLASS 95 DJ and TV host Yasminne Cheng will transport you.

Violet Oon Satay Bar & Grill
3B River Valley Road, #01-18, Clarke Quay, Singapore 179021 Tel: 9834 9935

“This 80-seater restaurant is decked out like its sister eatery, National Kitchen by Violet Oon at the National Gallery Singapore, with dark wood panels, hanging lamps and colourful Peranakan tiles."

“Start with a drink—Jade Bangle is like liquid pandan cake with a vodka kick! Then munch on Silver Fish Fritters: pan-fried, crispy and served with a tangy chilli sauce that has a hint of belacan."

“This is a satay joint after all, so you must have the barbecued meat. Try Pork Satay Hainan (below)—three sticks of juicy pork tenderloin with firm pork fat, a beautiful caramel glaze and chargrilled bits, and served with a spicy peanut sauce containing grated pineapple that cuts through the spice. Another to go for is Tripe Satay. The tripe is first boiled in ginger, lemongrass and galangal before being marinated in a mellow chilli, coconut and candlenut sauce. Sedap!”

Tip: No need to worry about parking— Clarke Quay has ample space.

"The vibe is distinctly different, with funky soul music belting out of the speakers."

PIM PAM by FOC
442 Orchard Road, #01-29, Singapore 238879 Tel: 6100 4242

“This casual Spanish-Catalan all-day dining joint at Claymore Connect has a big, modern space that’s bright and colourful, with lots of natural light coming through. Quirky design elements include big peppercorn mills doubling as hanging lights and huge rolling pins as decoration."

“Patatas Bravas is a must-have. The potatoes are sliced till very thin, layered and deep-fried till they’re crispy on the outside but moist inside; the dish is topped with spicy salsa brava, creamy garlic aioli and chives. So decadent!"

“The new Chicken Fideua is like paella but instead of rice, thin wheat noodles are cooked with chicken thigh and eggplant in a yummy chicken broth."

Tip: The closest carpark is at the basement of Orchard Hotel, adjacent to the building.

"For dessert, get the crispy yet fluffy White Doodle Churros, dipped in creamy white chocolate and served with freeze-dried raspberries. I can’t get enough of this!"

Morsels
25 Dempsey Road, #01-04, Singapore 249670 Tel: 6266 3822

“This cosy 40-seater restaurant is now in a gorgeous, rustic white house with an herb garden outside."

“The signature Steamed Venus Clams (below) are served in a delicious fig broth that’s a good balance between sweet and savoury, with pickled wakame seaweed and homemade kimchi. So good that I slurped up every last drop."

“Seared Slow-Cooked Duck Breast is a quacking good dish! The tender and juicy duck is paired with a sweet yuzu and white chocolate sauce, salty and spicy fennel kimchi, charred eryngii mushrooms and crispy fried kale—so many flavours and textures!”

Tip: Parking is an easy—and free—affairat Dempsey.

"Chef-owner Petrina Loh has used repurposed furniture and hand-painted the distressed walls. I felt like I was visiting someone’s cottage."
