A chef with a Michelin pedigree, a sweet husband-and-wife team, and absolutely delicious food…Cheek by Jowl is a date no-brainer, mama!
Cheek by Jowl on bustling Telok Ayer street is one of our favourite go-to restaurants for a girls’ dinner, quick business lunch or date night. Thanks to the delicious, inventive, vegetable-driven modern Australian cuisine and hospitable service, Cheek by Jowl ticks all the boxes.
The restaurant name Cheek by Jowl means ‘side-by-side’ and that is how the husband-and-wife team work here (we are in awe!). Chef Rishi Naleendra, formerly from Tetsuya, mans the open-plan kitchen and Manuela Toniolo, from Waku Ghin, is General Manager.
The menu has recently been jazzed up with new dishes, while old favourites like Fresh Oysters with Smoked Tomato Granita remain. Here’s our pick of the new menu, which ranges from a la carte to the Chef’s Menu (consisting of 1 snack and 5 courses at $58 during lunch, or 4 snacks and 5 courses at $88 during dinner)!
