Tendon specialist Tendon Kohaku and unagi specialist Man Man Unagi have started a brand-new collaborative dining concept at Clarke Quay Central! Since their respective openings, both of these F&B concepts have been drawing long queues every day, winning over the hearts of local gourmands with their authentic Japanese specialities. Now, fans of the two brands can tuck into both tendons and unagi just side by side at the two new restaurants.
At the new outlet, Tendon Kohaku will present an exclusive item: Kaisen Tendon by Kohaku and Teppei (S$26.50++). The item follows the kaisen don recipe by Chef Teppei Yamashita, who helms Teppei Japanese restaurant and Man Man Unagi.
Other exclusive items include Jumbo Unagi Tendon (S$29++), a glorious showstopper of huge eel encased in crispy tempura exterior. The Premium Chawanmushi with Unagi and Ikura (S$6.50++) is made with egg, chicken broth, chicken, shiitake mushroom and spring onion. The treasures that are unagi and fish cake are embedded within the wobbly offering; glistening globes of ikura are set atop it. There is also the Crispy Unagi Dragon Roll (S$9++): a combination of tempura prawn, tempura crabstick and avocado are draped across vinegared Japanese rice.
Man Man Unagi will also offer an exclusive item: Kaisen x Hitsumabushi by Teppei and Man Man (S$32.50++). The restaurant is renowned for its unagi offerings – its success is in part due to its insistence on using only premium Japanese eel. Drenching the eel is a thick, rich and moreish unagi sauce. At the new restaurant, you can ask for refills of the sauce! The perfectly grilled eel, which has a wonderful smoky aroma, is paired with Nanatsuboshi white rice and fresh wasabi. There are three ways to enjoy hitsumabushi: on its own; with a mix of condiments, wasabi and green onions; and with soup added to the aforementioned mix. The unagi is served alongside an exquisite kaisen don with a secret-recipe sauce from Teppei Japanese restaurant.

With characteristic cool, passion and verve, lawyer-in-training turned-chef and first MasterChef Asia winner Woo Wai Leong unveils his much-anticipated maiden dining experience, Restaurant Ibid.
Restaurant Ibid constitutes the culinary vision of Woo Wai Leong, lawyer-in-training turned chef and first winner of the inaugural MasterChef Asia season. Ibid draws the concepts of ‘from the same source’ (which ibid means in Latin) and ‘Nanyang’, which is characterized by an East-West sensibility and a constant search for origins and identity. From these dual inspirations comes Nanyang-style, Contemporary Chinese cuisine, a creative art form forged from Wai Leong’s own Nanyang heritage and Asian and Western culinary background. Housed in a conserved riverside shophouse and staffed by youthful ‘cross-trained’ kitchen and service talents, Restaurant Ibid is a seamless integration of concept, style and operation springing ‘from the same source’ embodied in the restaurant’s dynamic chef-owner.
Restaurant Ibid is housed on the first level of a shophouse in the Boat Quay precinct, where Chinese immigrants once traded on the Singapore River. Guarding the entrance are two external pillars bearing, in Chinese calligraphy, the name of the original landlord who traded in dried seafood. Visitors step into a hall with a feature wall of wooden traditional Chinese medicine drawers, highlighting the restaurant’s Chinoiserie theme.
The restaurant seats 14 at the bar and 40 at table, for a total of 54 guests.
Lunch, available from 14th May at Restaurant Ibid, sees an a la carte selection of Mains (Dong Po Beef Brisket with Plum Rice, Onsen Egg & Daikon Pickles), Sharing Plates (Chopped Kailan Salad with Roasted Garlic & Three Eggs) and Desserts (Acai, Chocolate Tofu Mousse, Fruits & Seeds).

With the fragrant aroma of Sichuan peppercorns and chilies beckoning, get ready to welcome new hotpot restaurant chain Spice World Hot Pot from China making its inaugural presence in Singapore with a 200-seater, 6,000 sqft duo-design dining space at Clarke Quay that serves up an array of aromatic spicy and non-spicy soup broths with exquisitely plated, high-quality and fresh ingredients.
Spice World Hot Pot, founded in 2003 is one of China’s top ten global hotpot brands that prides itself in the meticulous preparation of its soup broths and accompaniments. No artificial flavouring, MSG or flavor enhancers are used. Instead, soup bases are first brewed in Sichuan China using the most carefully sourced deep forest peppercorns from Hongya farmlands, chilies from the mountainous origins of Guizhou and Sichuan before being air-flown to Singapore where it goes through a secondary preparation. All soup bases including the much loved Sichuan mala broth are brewed for at least four to six hours.
Diners can choose from 7 different soup bases – mala, which comes in three varying degrees of spiciness (mild, medium, hot), pork belly and chicken, three-delicacy (pork, chicken, duck), wild mushroom, tomato, tom-yam, and curry.
At Spice World, accompanying ingredients such as beef, pork and lamb are freshly sourced, painstakingly prepared and hand-sliced as opposed to frozen and machined cut. Similarly, all seafood arrives at Spice World fresh, not frozen. A source of great pride, this method of serving fresh ingredients is Spice World’s hallmark of distinction.
From the freshest Australian M8 Wagyu beef, delicately draped to form a dress over a doll, to the Australian mutton slices served on a meter long plank, to the good-humouredly named Prime Minister’s Pork Balls (former U.K Prime Minister David Cameron’s favourite dish) made from pork belly and parsley, to the delicately sliced rumen tripe from the first section of a cow’s stomach that contains the grass it consumes; all meats are air-flown to ensure that freshness and quality are never compromised. For seafood lovers, freshly prepared shrimp paste made from 100% shrimp meat and tobiko are a perennial favourite amongst diners along with the seafood platter.
To add a bit of fun to the dining experience, diners can choose to have a teddy bear or Hello Kitty shaped out of mala soup and beef oil added to the hotpot and watch it slowly melt into the broth (limited to only 8 per day!). This fun element has been and still is a big hit with Spice World patrons around the world. Diners can also have a meal with Nicholas the Bear, a life-sized teddy bear stuffed toy mascot, if he is not too busy posing for pictures.

While there other gyms in Singapore that are equipped with Kinesis™ machines, Kinetika X is the only gym in Singapore to boast a full complement of eight top-end Kinesis™ Class machines as well as a Singapore’s only two Technogym Master Trainers. They and a staff of Kineses™-qualified personal trainers are assigned to every Kinesis™ class to ensure that all training methods are carried out correctly.
Another highlight at Kinetika X not found in any other gym in Singapore are its core-centric ARKE™ training classes.
Meaning the ‘origin of things’ in Greek, ARKE™ enables training which re-enacts the different stages of development that everyone has been through, from going on all fours as a child to the erect posture of a healthy adult. ARKE™ equipment is divided into four categories. Each one bears the name of a natural element of the Greek philosophic tradition and is identified by a different colour scheme and shape, according to the type, energy intensity and the position in which they are used: Earth (green) for stability and proprioception; Water (blue) for agility and balance; Fire (red) for adaptability and control; Air (orange) for dynamism and reactivity.
Each of these elements allows for the most effective and complete training experience. In order to acquire the best physical condition, coordination, stability, balance, flexibility, strength, speed, agility, reactivity, cardiovascular and respiratory efficiency, all aspects of the body need to be trained.
Apart from Kinesis™ and ARKE™, Kinetika X has also acquired the OMNIA™, which is a new functional training offer that maximizes members' interaction. As suggested by the Latin origin of the word ("all things"), OMNIA™ offers infinite possibilities in all kinds of training modalities - strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, coordination and speed - and satisfies the widest range of user needs, abilities, and aspirations.
