Michelin Star Restaurants in Singapore That Welcome Children
Perched on level 38 of the new Andaz Singapore is 665°F, the hotel’s premium steakhouse. 665°F, is a surprisingly intimate restaurant that’s almost like dining in a Chef’s kitchen. The famous Pira oven is on show (the temperature for which the restaurant is named after). This is where all the meat magic happens.
Appetisers include must-trys of Lime-cured Hamachi with Charred Cucumber and Watermelon Radish ($29) and the creamy Hokkaido Scallop Ceviche in Lemon Vinaigrette ($39). Meat (which is all halal) is the main name of the game here, chargrilled in the Pira oven, which creates the flavour, aroma, juiciness and texture unique to an open-fire barbecue. Signature dishes include the USA Prime Short Rib with Barbecue Glaze ($45) and the superb Australian Lamb Chops ($55) – a generous dish of three double lamb racks, the exteriors grilled to crusty perfection, yet tender and pink inside. Add this spot to your list people!

Urban Bites has been around a good amount of time – over 10 years in fact! But the news is they’ve just changed their authentic Lebanese menu and brought in brunch on Saturday too. Forget Arab quarter – if you are looking for good Middle Eastern and Lebanese fare, this is it! The menu ranges from traditional Lebanese slow cooked hummus ($13) to the modern Samke Harra ($29) of seabass served crispy skinned on creamy smoky baba ghanoush and sprinkled with pops of sweet pomegranate. Urban Bites is now doing brunch on a Saturday with interesting dishes like Lebanese Big Breakfast ($20) with hummus, labneh sunny side up egg and veggies or the Eggs and Lamb Shashouka ($20) with a Lebanese coffee!

Common Man Stan (by Common Man) is a swanky new spot in the CBD for office rats to get their caffeine fix. The digs are pretty upmarket with counter seats at a marble bar, booth seats at the back and lots of flashy gold. It’s not just coffee on the menu here of course. Similarly to their Robertson Quay location, Common Man Stan offers a varied menu of breakfast and lunch dishes. Think NY bagels (by Schmear) with cream cheese ($7.50) or smoked salmon ($12) or Marmite Mushrooms, on avocado toast ($17) to lunch dishes of Ponzu Chicken with House-Made Basil Pesto Brown Rice, pickled beets, brocollini, haricot beans and avocado ($20) or Beef Ribeye Jungle Curry ($21).

Hans Im Gluck is a new German upmarket burger bar chain with over 40 restaurants abroad. Their first post in Asia has popped up in Orchard using the space right next to the Thai Embassy, with alfresco and indoor seating – its interiors dotted with a forest of birch trees. On the menu, burgers (beef, chicken, vegetarian and vegan patties) like the Geissbock ($17) of homemade sourdough or multigrain buns, and a beef patty topped with feta cheese, bacon and fig jam. Fries and salad need to be bought as extra.
