The Star Vista


Why you need to visit Ippudo?

If you’re a fan of this popular ramen chain, you’ll need to head down to their newest outlet at The Star Vista. Why? Because it’s the only outlet that serves café inspired dishes and coffee!


What to eat?

Looking for some light bites? Order up the oven-baked Lasagna Gyoza, which has Ippudo’s signature gyoza surrounded by potato chunks and cheese. Or indulge in the Spam Mustard Itame and dig into spam, potato and pan-fried broccoli. Want more? A highlight on the menu is definitely the Maze Soba, which tempts your taste buds with homemade dry noodles tossed with homemade minced meat miso paste and topped with diced chashu, spring onions, bamboo shoots, seaweed, onsen tamago and fried noodle bits.


What to have for dessert?

You certainly can’t leave Ippudo without trying their dessert. The Affogato – vanilla ice cream topped with hot espresso and crystal candy as well as the Matcha Crème Brulee will certainly not disappoint.



Merci Marcel

56 Eng Hoon Street


Why you need to visit Merci Marcel?

If you can appreciate good food, art and curated boutique offerings, this is the place for you. Take your pick from the Marcel Wine Cellar, Cheese & Charcuterie Corner, Gourmet Corner and the lifestyle range. And while you fill your tummies, soak in the various art pieces that adorn the walls.


What to eat?

A must-try on the menu is the Australian Angus Beef (400g) grilled to caramelised perfection and served with creamy seasonal mushrooms, beef jus reduction and burnt leek. Fancy some seafood instead? Try the Black Pepper Tuna with yuzu and soy vinaigrette and Pan Seared Scallops with cauliflower crème & couscous.


What to drink?

Wine, cider or beer anyone? Or how about its exclusive 100% organic UMÀ Iced Tea to Patrick FONT Nectars, locally roasted coffee by Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee. And if you’re looking to treat yourself, how about a little bubbly?



Neon Pigeon

1 Keong Saik Road


Why you need to visit Neon Pigeon?

Its new bar bites menu makes it the perfect place to unwind after a long week at work.


What to eat?

A highlight of the Bar Bites menu is the Tonkatsu Po Boy – think shrimp and pork chop with a spicy miso paste on a fluffy bun. Or share a snack or two with your friends. Try the Sweet potato fries with crack salt and togarashi or the Brie with wasabi, which is served on tempura seaweed.

For a limited time, Neon Pigeon will offer 12 new sakes, featuring sparkling varieties to junmai rice varieties, and six new craft beers. So take your pick and get the weekend started.
