For some Asian fusion, visit… Cé La Vi.

Executive Chef Joseph Sergentakis unveils a one-of-a-kind treat, featuring the best of Asia in a single menu. Relish in the succulent Scallop & Oyster Ceviche for a refreshing seafood delight. More of a meat lover? Tuck into the Cast-Iron Roasted Rangers Valley “Black Market” Ribeye. Plus, a swanky new interior completes your luxe dining experience. Here, Cé La Vi fits the bill to a tee. The restaurant’s Asian-inspired decor takes you from the lush jungles of Bali to the majestic ruins of Cambodia as you dine. It’s a perfect match for your best-in-Asia feast.

Cé La Vi, Marina Bay Sands, 1 Bayfront Ave. For reservations, call 6508 2188.


For Halal-Thai offerings, head to… Blue Jasmine @ Park Hotel Farrer Park.

Already missing your previous trip to Bangkok? At Blue Jasmine, you’ll get to relive your culinary highlights thanks to its menu of authentic Thai recipes. Open since mid May, the restaurant offers crowd-pleasing favourites such as the Crispy Seabass ($28) and Beef Green Curry ($24). Most of its dishes come in sharing portions, so be sure to round up your friends with the biggest appetites!

If you’re looking for classic Thai desserts, you won’t be disappointed either. We recommend the Mango & Blue Jasmine Sticky Rice ($14) that’s every bit a visual and gastronomical treat. On top of that, its Halal certification makes this an ideal spot for friends to break fast during the month of Ramadan.

Blue Jasmine, Level 5 Park Hotel Farrer Park, 10 Farrer Park Station Rd. Open 11.30am – 2.30pm, 6 – 10pm. For reservations, call 6824 8851 or e-mail


For burgers galore … try Coriander Leaf Grill.

Sometimes, a juicy burger just hits the spot. Located at Ann Siang Road, this restaurant is a haven from the chaos you’d associate the CBD area with. Try their Charcoal Grilled Black Angus Burger ($23) if you’re looking for something hearty. We couldn’t get enough of their in-house mustard sauce, that really tied together the caramel and smoky flavours of the meat patty. Tipple lovers, don’t fret – you’ll get to enjoy Coriander Leaf Grill’s bespoke cocktails and beers on tap, as you soak up the charming streets of Ann Siang.

Coriander Leaf Grill, 12 Ann Siang Rd. Open for lunch Mondays to Fridays, 11am – 2.30pm (closed on Public Holidays). Open for dinner Mondays to Saturdays, 6.30 – 10.30pm. Closed on Sundays. For reservations, call 6222 7276 or e-mail
