After five years of calling its cosy corner “meating spot” on Amoy Street home, Singapore’s foremost Argentinian steakhouse boCHINche by local lifestyle collective Spa Esprit Group has moved out of one Chinatown dining enclave to claim its stake in another - this time along the popular Club Street stretch. The new location boasts a larger dining hall decked out with a fresh look inspired by tribal design, an open kitchen and grill that flanks the entire length of the restaurant, and a refreshed menu designed by head chef Fabrice Mergalet to bring the age- old steakhouse experience to the modern age.
With a bigger location comes bolder ambitions as boCHINche continues to elevate the steakhouse experience in its new home. Ingredients, from trusted staples to regional specialties, are sourced seasonally from around the world to ensure the best products all year long. Modern cooking techniques such as sous vide, lacto fermentation, and infusions allow the kitchen to develop new dishes with unexpected ingredient and flavour combinations that draw inspiration from culinary traditions beyond Latin America, and across the world. Beyond its prized steaks, lighter, brighter flavours and more varied protein options have been introduced to widen its appeal. One thing remains unchanged since day one - steaks are cooked using traditional grilling techniques over charcoal fire to achieve a lightly charred crust and smoky aroma that best highlights the natural flavours of the beef.
Easily spot the restaurant on 27 Club Street with its textured facade cladded in panels of rustic recycled wood pieces. Step into the space and immediately notice the difference as tribal design-inspired interiors exude an undeniable masculine elegance, contrasted with quirky, fun elements throughout. A nod to soviet modernism design, clean, elegant lines of wood panelling, marble surfaces, and brass fittings are further accentuated with warm lighting in the 66-seater restaurant designed by the group’s creative director Jerry Sparks.
“boCHINche has been like that trusted old friend that never lets you down through the years. We’ve grown beyond just being that Argentinian restaurant or a traditional steakhouse - and have truly carved out a unique identity in Singapore’s dining scene that I believe will stand the test of time, and flourish even into even bigger and bolder possibilities from this point on,” shares Cynthia Chua, founder and Chairman of Spa Esprit Group.
Pre-meal nibbles come in inspired morsels packed full of flavours. Crispy Argentinian Spring Rolls (S$14) are filled with tender, richly flavoured chopped pig ears, cut with an aromatic mix of jalapeño, piquillo, scallion, and coriander. A trio of hand-cut beef, chicken and sweet corn Empanadas (S$5 each) continue to be boCHINche’s signature crowd-pleasers, with the addition of a new flavour that elevates the quintessential ham and cheese pairing with rich provolone cheese, smoked ham, sweet confit onions and pimento.
While meats are the main event at boCHINche, a new selection of standout starters offer bright respite for those seeking a lighter touch for their meals. A plump, milky ball of artisanal Italian Burrata (S$29) is paired with a medley of fermented tomatoes that cut through each creamy spoonful with refreshing fizzy pops on the palate, dotted with avocado mousse and edible orange cosmos. Quail (S$28) offers more than just a beautifully charcoal grilled bird with earthy flavours of salt-crusted roasted beetroot, crunchy roasted hazelnuts and tangy berries brought together with a rich buttermilk sauce. A classic Spanish risotto-style Bomba Arroz Verde (S$27) is topped with grilled Argentinian prawns, while raw scallop bites are folded throughout the rice and glazed with a stock made using seafood trimmings, resulting in a satisfying, creamy consistency while still remaining blissfully dairy-free.
From the famous wood and charcoal grill, a combination of cherry, apple and jarrah wood lends an irresistible flavour to a proud selection of carefully selected, grass-fed beef imported directly from Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Japan. While Argentinian beef remains the heart and soul of boCHINche, a renewed emphasis has been placed on the brand being an authority on high quality cuts of beef from around the world. A dry-aging fridge allows beef to be dry- aged in-house—typically for 35 to 38 days—using traditional methods, with an added coating of beef tallow that helps enhance the aging process while introducing new dimensions of flavours.
A thoughtful, 50-odd-strong-label wine list completes the steakhouse experience, with 10 labels available by glass and carafe. Designed around the philosophy of pairing wines and cuisine of the same origin, the list features 30 Argentinian labels—mainly from the key region of Mendoza—ranging from the quaffable to the bold and robust. The list is split between a selection of natural wines sourced from Drunken Farmer, while the rest remain conventional for their big, robust flavours that are best enjoyed with aged meats cooked over charcoal fire.
Moving away from the traditionally formal and somewhat intimidating wine bars, Club Street Wine Room has been designed as an inviting space, beckoning imbibers and diners alike to drop in any time for a glass of wine and a delicious bite.
Club Street Wine Room breaks the norms with its dynamic directory that offers something for every palate, appealing to traditionalists, fans of natural wines and adventurous tipplers alike. The diverse repertoire invites imbibers to go on a journey of discovery, exploration and experimentation for a swirling good time.
When summer descends on Italy, the outdoors burst with activity and the word on everyone’s lips is “grigliata”.
Grigliata is the outdoor grill cook-out dreamed of in foodie heaven. A larder of the season’s finest produce sizzling on a bed of burning charcoal. The company of family and friends. Luscious wine and overwhelming hospitality.
The Italians have honed this summer ritual to perfection, and adored and honoured it like religion for generations. Now imagine sitting down to this cornucopia of flavour and life ... and you are at Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen.
Griglia is a brand-new contemporary Italian grill restaurant nestled on the ground floor of a conservation shophouse in charming Craig Road. As its name promises, diners at Griglia will be treated to the tastes, sensations and emotions of the grigliata in a casual setting-- and fall in love with the magic of the Common Flame.
Typically, guests bring along their favourite dishes to a grigliata. Multiple courses are enjoyed over a long afternoon, leisurely savouring appetisers and side dishes while sipping tasty wines, before embarking on the main course; meanwhile the charcoal fire perpetually glows in one of the oldest cooking styles known to man.
The grigliata celebrates fresh seasonal produce, cooking it over hot coals and open flame to accentuate the natural inherent flavours. Grigliata dishes are less intense and more Mediterranean in flavour, consisting of meats, seafood, fish and seasonal vegetables and fruits seasoned with herbs, salt and pepper, lavished with olive oil marinades and judicious squeezes of lemon.
Griglia prepares these same recipes using traditional as well as modern methods, making them even lighter and more refreshing. The menu conceptualised by Andrea De Paola, Chef Partner of Griglia & Group Executive Chef of Food Concepts Group, is based on classic grigliata dishes from different regions of Italy with additional recipes from his family and friends. By offering a wide selection of food, and serving it smaller sharing portions, diners are encouraged to order and taste many dishes in the style of the ‘bring-your-own’ grigliata.
At Griglia almost all the ingredients, and not just meat, fish and seafood, are cooked with the cast iron charcoal grill. This stunning equipment, made-to- measure for the open kitchen, brings out the intrinsic flavours of the fresh seasonal produce. Meanwhile the warm and cosy restaurant is constructed and clad in the raw materials of the grigliata – wood, bricks and metal.
Food and aesthetics work together to honour the element at the crux of the grigliata and the restaurant -- the Common Flame that draws people together in the embrace of Italian hospitality; fostering human bonds over food and fire, and creating moments that beget enduring memories.
The menu is conceptualised by Chef Andrea De Paola, and executed by Head Chef Federico Schiraldi. To showcase the culinary essence of the grigliata, the dishes are based on its classic recipes, with flavours made lighter and more refreshing and presented in a refined contemporary style using handcrafted Mediterranean-style tableware.
Griglia serves antipasti, artisanal salumi, main courses, sides, cheeses and desserts, and carries an extensive range of more than 100 wines from different regions, with up to 85% from Italy. Cocktails focus on different flavours of Negroni, Spritz and Gin & Tonic. Traditional Italian digestives, such as limoncello, amaro and grappa are also served.
Homegrown fragrance brand, Scent by SIX, has launched an open- concept scent bar at Jem mall in Jurong East. With its two other boutiques located at Bugis Junction and 313@Somerset in central Singapore, this new presence in the west enables Scent by SIX to reach out to a wider community.
In conjunction with its foray into the western shopping enclave, Scent by SIX will be introducing a new scent collection: Sleep, Returns. The calming scent is infused with fragrance intelligence, ‘Sleep Accord’, by Japanese Fragrance House, Takasago. Data from a global study of ‘Sleep Accord’ indicated a positive experience for its panellists, with improvement in sleep quality and duration.
With a prime spot at the entrance of Jem mall on the first level, the new scent bar welcomes shoppers to discover its collection of home and personal fragrances created over the past years since its launch in July 2016.
To optimise the customer experience, touch points were identified for an ergonomic flow. In terms of the ambience, the idea of wellness and care is similarly showcased in the new space as it was at the 313@Somerset boutique. The appointed designer, Clara Yee, Creative Director of In The Wild explains the design concept: “The new scent bar by Scent by Six is an open and fluid space with a porous boundary, allowing guests to stumble upon and wander through the space that sits at a busy intersection at the entrance of Jem. The palette of soft sandstone pink, textured stucco walls, and luxurious brass, balance earthly tactile comfort with a touch of sophistication. Just like the flagship Somerset boutique, the scent bar at Jem exudes a home-like hosting experience, creating islands over which to have conversations, linger and discover the scents.”
While the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has brought upon challenges such as the temporary closure of Jem mall in May, which delayed renovations for the scent bar, Jason Lee, Founder of Scent by SIX remains optimistic. “There is no better time to take the leap of faith and expand the business than now. Moving forward, running a business in this climate will be the new normal. We have complete faith that our government will manage the situation well and continue to support local businesses sustainably,” he opines.
In keeping with its mission to use its scents to heal, soothe and delight one’s mental wellness, Scent by SIX introduces its latest scent, Sleep, Returns. The design for this collection draws inspiration from the Six of Swords tarot card. It depicts a state of transition, leaving behind what was familiar and moving towards calmer waters by moving forward. “Sleep is a fundamental human need and a good night’s rest is essential to maintaining our mental health. We understand the struggles of those who are not having a good night’s sleep. With our new scent collection, we bring them hope for better sleep,” says Jason.
As it did last year with its uplifting scent, Hikaru, Scent by SIX will be donating S$10,000 from the sales of Sleep, Returns to the Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH). Through this partnership with SAMH, Scent by SIX aims to raise awareness of mental health issues, particularly depression, and the importance of taking care of one’s mental wellness. The funds will be donated to the association to help individuals with mental health issues.
In August 2021, Singapore Airlines announced its collaboration with Scent by SIX in creating its signature scent, Batik Flora. The scent includes floral notes from six flowers in SIA’s batik motif: aquatic ginger, common dianella, seashore purslane, simpoh lak, utania nervosa and white kopsia. Batik Flora by Singapore Airlines will be progressively introduced at key customer-facing SIA locations from October 2021, starting with the SIA Service Centre at ION Orchard. Customers will also be able to enjoy this signature scent at SIA’s redeveloped SilverKris Lounge at Singapore Changi Airport terminal three. Batik Flora will be available in a collection of reed diffusers, pillow mists, and an eau de toilette fragrance. The collection will be sold exclusively on KrisShop.com from October 2021.

With record numbers of first-time bullion buyers, family offices, hedge funds and HNWIs increasing their diversification into this asset class, IPM Group and Auctus Metal Portfolios are positioned to assist individuals, corporate and institutional investors to embrace the critical significance of maintaining a diversified investment portfolio, including an exposure to physical precious metals.
Established in 2014, Indigo Precious Metals Group is a trusted precious metals investment specialist, founded and run by leading metals expert, former investment banker and acclaimed financial analyst David J Mitchell, serving a wide international client base from offices in Singapore, Malaysia and the UK.
Founding Partner, David Mitchell shared, "Every asset class has its day in the sun. The global macroeconomic landscape is pointing towards a substantial revaluation of precious metals, driven by a myriad of dynamic factors.
“Exposure to traditional asset classes at this time, including stocks and property is becoming increasingly risky, as a growing acceptance of their extreme overvaluation becomes widespread. Current valuations are simply unsustainable in the longer term. There is a clear and ongoing shift occurring, with increasing global wealth capital flows moving into more defensive and undervalued asset classes. Investors are now demanding the inclusion of physical precious metals within their diversified portfolios.
“We are in the early days of a clearly-defined super-cycle in commodities. Precious metals represent the pointy end of the spear in terms of leading the way forwards in commodity asset appreciation. Expanding our headcount and securing a sizable ground floor retail space in the heart of Singapore's CBD will ensure that we are well equipped to meet this growing demand,” he added.
The new IPM Group retail bullion store features safe, discreet, and easy access to several dynamic bullion showcases and displays as well as well-appointed, private meeting rooms for prospective clients who seek bullion investment advice from their team of bullion experts and advisors. Monitors featuring live spot metal prices adorn the walls and provide investors with real time bullion market information including performance charts, forecasts, and research reports.
As a leading bullion dealer in Singapore since 2014, IPM Group has developed a loyal client base in trading precious metals and a reputation for consistently offering highly competitive premiums across the market. IPM Group offers an extensive selection of internationally recognised brands of investment grade bullion including Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium. Also on offer are rare earths and collectibles in a variety of denominations, weights, and product types.
IPM Group continues to focus on its mandate for offering free and bespoke investment advice as well as sharing in-depth research reports with all clients, as well as offering a comprehensive, low-cost A-class vaulting facility solutions together with Malca-Amit at Le Freeport Singapore (fondly known as the Fort Knox of Asia). Le Freeport Singapore is a world-class and duty-free vaulting facility that ensures total investor privacy, discretion and protection with all client’s vaults being wholly segregated, fully allocated and insured by Lloyd's of London.
To complement the new bullion store at 23 Amoy Street, IPM Group has developed an e-commerce platform and a bespoke client vaulting portal: www.indigopreciousmetals.com with an extensive range of bullion bars and coins for sale, made available 24/7 for both allocated and unallocated, or pooled metal investments.

Their pizzas are done Neapolitan style, they are fired in the wood fire oven (burning at around 450-500 degrees celcius) for no more than 90 seconds, giving the crust that authentic “leopard spotted” char and the smoky-ness.
All their pizzas are hand stretched, and thus are thin in the center with a crust that is crisp on the outside whilst being fluffily soft inside. They top their pizza with raw San Marzano tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. The focus is well balanced crust, toppings and quality of ingredients.
These traits are typical of a Neapolitan pizza. Taste it at Pizza Fabbrica.

The gelatos available at the newly-opened Momolato Café are exquisite and inspirational and backed by Momolato’s deep experience as Singapore’s premium gelato maker.
