Claudine is 3-Michelin star chef Julien Royer's second restaurant in Singapore. It is centrally situated in an area called Dempsey Hill, which seems to be an emerging area for top chefs to cluster. The food is classic French, hearty yet elegantly done. The space is grand as it was an old heritage chapel, so when you enter the space, it transports you to a different dimension from what we usually have in our concrete jungle Singapore. If I were on a date at Claudine, I am sure my date would be upset about how much time I will need to read this list. So many gems, yet so little time! The list...

Address: 21 Boon Tat Street
Fool is a Michelin Bib Gourmand wine bar a stone's throw away from their sister restaurant Cloudstreet. They are based very near to Singapore's business district on Boon Tat Street. The space reminds me of a funky, groovy disco lounge with a beautiful sound system and great tunes. Not your run-of-mill wine bar for sure; bright, colourful, and quirky paintings adorn the walls, and the furniture is chic and tastefully designed. The first thing that greets you on the first page of the wine list is bold, cheeky, groovy disco-styled font shouting "WINE". It's amazing how it immediately sets the t...

Address: 128 Tembeling Road
Forma is a passion project by the dynamic trio of the Cicheti group; Liling, Aun, and Ronald. They are now joined by Yum Hwa, pasta maker extraordinaire, to set up Singapore’s hottest table in the ever-growing hipster area of Joo Chiat. You will find this elegant restaurant amongst old shophouses where families live, and old traders are operating shops. But that snaking queue and well-dressed patrons are quite a new sight now on Tembling Road. The Italy-dominated wine list boasts a representation of all of Italy’s 20 wine regions and at least 65 indigenous varieties. To top things up and to...

Le Bon Funk, as the name might suggest, is all about the good fun. Chef and owner Keirin Buck and his team whip up a rotating menu of wine-friendly dishes focusing on fresh produce. They are located on Club Street, close to the central business district in Singapore.

Address: 1 Beach Road
La Dame de Pic is Michelin-starred chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s Singapore outpost, rightly positioned in the grande dame of Singapore, the Raffles Hotel. The restaurant is currently in what used to be Raffles Grill, the most formal and famous fine-dining location in Singapore back in those days. Now it is a stylishly designed space still elegantly structured by the heritage walls and ceilings of this 130-year-old colonial building. The cuisine is distinctively French with very delicate touches and accented with Asian flavours. The wine list is diverse yet very heavy on French classics. A cellar col...

Address: Lobby Level, Tower Wing, 22 Orange Grove Road
A classic yet modern hotel steakhouse within the iconic Shangri-la Hotel Singapore's Orchard area. The restaurant features the best produce from the land, fields and sea and one of the best beef selections. We know that the sommelier is brave when categorising his wine list based on grape varieties. Letting the grapes shine and allowing the grapes to speak for themselves! He has snippets of grape information scattered around the list, sharing things like "what a Pinotage is" and "the meaning of Nero d'Avola". Wine geeks would be pleased to know that they can drink more than 40 varieties ran...
