Where To Eat In Singapore This Week: BBR By Alain Ducasse, Bread Street Kitchen, Burger & Lobster And More
Tired from all the F1 festivities this past weekend? Recover like a true champion by dining at these restaurants with enticing menus, some of which are prepared by top chefs who’ll be doing collaboration dinners. Afterwards, satisfy your sweet tooth cravings with an order (or two) of sticky toffee and banana split sundae.
1/5 BBR by Alain Ducasse
Our much-awaited restaurant by revered French chef Alain Ducasse has finally opened at Raffles Hotel Singapore. The open kitchen is headed by young talented chef Louis Pacquelin, who was specially picked by Ducasse to dish out a bevvy of sublime Mediterranean delights.
There’s much to try, including pulpo a la gallega, tender-grilled octopus dressed with piquant paprika and olive oil; and langosta a la menorquina, fresh lobster chunks tossed with tomatoes, sweet bell pepper and fennel in a toothsome lobster bisque.
2/5 Bread Street Kitchen
Those in need of a sugar rush should take advantage of executive chef Sabrina Stillhart’s ‘Summer in the City’ dessert menu, available until September 30. Enjoy toothsome, towering sundaes with delightful flavours like sticky toffee and banana split; the latter contains layers of cornflake ice cream, banana split ice cream, sticky toffee pudding and a generous drizzle of caramel toffee sauce.
These are quite heavy on the palate, so if you’re looking for lighter options, go for the apple-crumble chantilly sundae, an ensemble of vanilla yoghurt ice cream dotted with candied pecan nuts and fragrant apple-lemon thyme stew.

3/5 Burger & Lobster
You don’t need to go all the way to Jewel Changi Airport for get your Burger & Lobster fix now that the famous chain has opened a second outlet at Raffles Hotel Singapore. Just like the space—which is three times bigger than the original and includes a fresh seafood counter and outdoor bar—the offerings are more extensive and include exclusive items.
Come with friends and share the seafood platter, an assortment of freshly shucked oysters, poached tiger prawns, half lobsters and more. But if you’re here for the signatures, you can always go for the Original Roll and Original Lobster.
Why not try some of the Raffles exclusives too? The Laksa Lobster is their spin on the local favourite, while the uni, lobster & caviar lobster roll brings all our favourite seafood ingredients together in one delicious bite.

4/5 Summer Palace
Retaining the restaurant’s one Michelin star for the third year running is such a triumphant moment for the team, that executive chef Liu Ching Hai created a five-course lunch and dinner celebratory menu dubbed New Chapter.
Each dish represents certain milestones in his career, like the appetiser of wok-fried roast pork that serves as a tribute to his mentor, Masterchef Fok Wing Tin, formerly of TungLok Group and Empress Room at Raffles Hotel Singapore.
His double-boiled assorted seafood soup served in a golden pumpkin was inspired by the simple dish he came up with to encourage his sons to eat healthier, while the oven-baked codfish with caviar and egg white was created after he was exposed to new cuisines at Shang Palace in Kuala Lumpur.
He ties the menu nicely with the double-boiled hasma with almond cream served in young coconut—his wife’s favourite dessert.
5/5 V Dining
Fresh from receiving one Michelin star for Rhubarb Le Restaurant, chef-partner Paul Longworth is gearing up for a guest stint at V Dining on September 24, where he’ll prepare a five-course dinner menu alongside head chef Lee Jing Peng.
Longworth will whip up delicately pan-seared scallops decorated with rhubarb and caviar; and Japanese whelk on a bed of Jerusalem artichoke and popcorn velouté. Lee will complete the meal with his halibut bouillabaisse, layered with zesty undertones from the pickles, and a scrumptious mille-feuille with cherries and Gluhwein (mulled wine).
