Where To Eat In Singapore This Week: Bistecca, Tiffin Room, Salted & Hung And More
Whether you’re a meat-lover or looking to stick to a lean meal plan, there’s surely something from this week's round-up to tantalise your tastebuds. In fact, we’ve tossed in a couple of options from your favourite Chinese and Indian stalwarts to spice things up a little more.
1/5 Din Tai Fung
A meal here is never complete without the signature fried rice, which recently won Mediacorp Channel 5’s "Search for Singapore’s Best Fried Rice" competition. That’s also why the team is offering a tasty new option at selected outlets throughout the month of October.
What makes this even more flavourful? Imagine perfect pearls of rice stir-fried in Din Tai Fung’s exclusive XO sauce, with egg, shrimps and onions. The addition of dried flatfish, which the chefs grill first, gives it a smoky depth.
2/5 Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse
If you think the steakhouse’s 1.1kg Fiorentina steak is enormous, wait until you see the T-bone steak it just launched. Weighing up to 2.5kg, the double-cut steak is arguably the largest cut available on the island.
Order it in advance so that the chefs have time to ensure all its beautiful meaty flavours are properly showcased.

3/5 Salted & Hung
This one meal will take your palate on a journey of modern gastronomy from India to Australia, as Salted & Hung's Drew Nocente and Sricharan Venkatesh of Nadodi collaborate on a four-hands dinner, available on October 2 and 3.
Both believe in compelling and flavour-driven dishes, presented in a nine-course menu that includes Red Kari from Venkatesh, a captivating dish of beetroot in different textures, prepared in curry, sorbet and pickled. Something this bold can only be followed by Nocente’s grouper dish, garnished with an infusion of dehydrated fish bones that are first infused in soy for 30 days. It is cleverly delicious, to say the least.
4/5 Tiffin Room
Explore the vibrant flavours of North Indian cuisine at this newly-renovated stalwart, with a refreshed and expanded spread featuring a variety of dishes from the regions of Lucknow, Punjab and Rajasthan.
It's recommended that you begin the feast with the popular jhinga kebab, succulent tiger prawns marinated in cardamom and Indian spices; and don't forget to order the nalli roganjosh, an aromatic dish of lamb shank cooked with dried chilli paste and Kashmiri Indian spices.

5/5 Verde Kitchen
If you're looking to take a break from meat this week, opt for some clever plant-based options. Meat-free options are the talk of the town now, and starting this month, you’ll be able to find a galore of meat alternative dishes by the Impossible brand on this restaurant's revamped menu.
Try the All You Need salad bowl, a refreshing ensemble of avocado, tomato, spinach and Impossible kofta kebab. But if you miss the sensation of sinking your teeth into a juicy burger, the Impossible burger might be a good choice as it tastes like the real deal. Of course, the patty is also layered with slices of cheddar, tomato and lettuce and topped with smoked barbecue sauce served between pillowy brioche buns.
