Where to Eat in Singapore This Week: Wan Hao, Oxwell & Co., Wok ̊15 Kitchen, Yum Sing, Beats Bites & Cocktails
The last two weeks of January are looking good with restaurants revamping their menus and introducing creative offerings such as pop-up stores, which may entice us to go out and eat to our heart's content. If you're a fan of Chinese fare, you can make a trip to Sentosa Cove for a taste of sumptuous Shanghai and Cantonese fare. But for delectable Cantonese pastries closer to the city, check out Wan Hao's pop-up store which will be offering Cantonese pastries for a limited period only. That's not all for the week, so scroll down and see what else is in store for you.

1/5 Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant
Wan Hao’s culinary team is serving up a bevvy of delicious Cantonese pastries at its pop-up store in the hotel. Try their egg tarts that come in an assortment of flavours; apart from the classic egg custard, you have fillings of coconut shreds, gula melaka and red bean—all mixed in with silky egg custard and set atop a buttery cookie crust tart shell.
Save space for more delights, including the baked char siew bun and wife cake (lao po bing). The former comprises tender chunks of char siew, marinated in savoury soy sauce and encased within a crumbly and buttery crust, while the latter is filled with a delectable winter melon core.
Available until February 20.
2/5 Oxwell & Co.
After a successful festive pop-up at Straits Clan during the festive season, the team has decided to extend it until the end of February. Straits Clan Clubhouse’s new executive chef Reuben Davis designed the menu; it features elevated classics such as Oxwell & Clan chicken curry enriched with mango chutney, steamed rice and poppadoms, as well as glazed oriental pork ribs brightened by a tangy ponzu sauce and accompanied by red cabbage slaw. Book here.
3/5 Wok ̊15 Kitchen
The restaurant’s revamped menu—which now features the best of Shanghainese and Cantonese fare—means a whole lot of delectable choices on your next visit. Opt for the a la carte buffet and feast on crowd favourites such as chilli crab bathed in a flavoursome sauce and fish of the day cooked according to what you like.
Set menus are also available, in case you just want everything planned for you. And the classic sets spotlight well-loved dishes such as Peking duck, double-boiled sakura chicken soup and braised ee-fu noodles topped with live Boston lobster. Book here.

4/5 Yum Sing
It’s been two decades since Putien set foot on our shores, and to mark this occasion, Pu Tien Holdings Singapore has debuted this new dining concept that “celebrates the spirit of Singapore”. Set on the bustling Clarke Quay, the restaurant serves Singaporean fare from the contemporary coffee pork ribs to hawker favourites of Hokkien mee, laksa, chilli crab and Hainanese chicken rice.
More than a food lover’s destination, the menu is complemented by locally-inspired cocktails. Yum Sling is the bar team’s take on the quintessential Singapore Sling, and is concocted using gin, fresh coconut, pineapple and orange juice. Book here.
Yum Sing | 3 River Valley Road, 01-06/07 Clarke Quay, Block B, S(179021) | 6261 6463
5/5 Beats Bites & Cocktails
The Bukit Pasoh enclave is set to get livelier with the addition of this new bar concept, dreamed up by cocktail enthusiasts Caroline Tan and Douglas Williams. Start the night with the spirit-forward concoctions such as Purple Rain, a potent mix of Widges gin infused with hibiscus and butterfly pea.
Delectable bites cooked over binchotan wood heighten the experience, and you’ll do well to order the likes of Bertha Ash biscuits. These are cooked using leftover ash from the oven (instead of baking powder) to lend each bite a slight bitterness that cuts through the heaviness of the longan honey miso-marinated foie gras that accompanies the biscuits. Book here.
