When Avenue 87 opened its doors in September 2020, the restaurant celebrated the culmination of the friendship and the seamless synergy of co-Chef-Founders Glen Tay and Alex Phan. The modern Asian restaurant serves well-known dishes transformed by the memories, travels, and professional discourse of the two chefs. Almost a full year later, the reunited duo presents a brand-new tasting menu and a new bar.
The new tasting menu continues to deliver nostalgia with surprises from Chefs Glen and Alex's creative interpretations of their favourite dishes and flavours. Available in five and seven courses ($98++ and $142++ respectively), they showcase flavours that are meticulously extracted using contemporary techniques to create distinctive nuances and flavour profiles in each dish.
A new space at level 2, Lounge at Avenue 87, fulfils both chefs’ yearning of getting together with friends over drinks and snacks in the comfort of home. Much like a speakeasy bar, it is only accessible through the restaurant's back-end staircase.
Reflecting Glen and Alex’s preferences at the end of a long day at work, the menu features two drinks specially concocted by the two chefs, as well as classic cocktails that have remained their favourites through the years. Inspired by the Gin & Tonic, the refreshing Botanic ($21++) curated by Alex highlights familiar Asian profiles with Rojak Gin, Melati and Indian Tonic. The Jambu ($21++), a reimagined Cosmopolitan by Glen, combines butter vodka, sherry, rose apple, rose syrup and honey to offer the sweet and creamy flavours of bandung.

In 1989 he opened his first restaurant "Oceanus" in his home town of Jerusalem. There, he developed a unique culinary language based on regional Mediterranean products: olive oil, fish, tahini, fresh seasonal vegetables and of course, the tomato.
Since opening his fine-dining restaurant HaSalon in Tel Aviv, Shani is now the inspiration and the leading chef of 23 highly successful restaurants worldwide. He is considered to be one of the leading figures in the Israeli culinary scene, starring in the TV series "Food for Thought" and appearing on the panel of judges during the past six seasons of Israeli "MasterChef."

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).

Claypots Full Circle - Fresh plates of whole fish, squid, mussels, oysters, octopus... and a lineup of delightful meze to share. A melding of Mediterranean and Asian flavours. A bar that beckons. A meeting place for all.
The first Claypots restaurant came into existence on Barkly Street, in Melbourne, Australia, in the 90s. An unassuming little establishment that served primarily claypots and fresh seafood plates in its anterior days, it has evolved into a brand of restaurants well-loved by locals and tourists for exceptional seafood dishes and lively vibes.
A self-taught Mediterranean chef and Claypots’ founder, Renan Goskin, was inspired by South-east Asian cuisine in his many travels. In particular, Singapore had always felt like a place he could call home.
A couple of university students fell in love with the seafood joint. When they came home to Singapore, many years later, they sought to bring Claypots to Singapore.
Full Circle is a collaboration between the seasoned restaurant family and their ardent Singaporean supporters.

Tradition is at the heart and soul of what is served up on your platters at K-Tower. Located along Amoy Street, K-Tower started out as a vision to bring together close family and friends to dine as one, engaging in the cooking of seafood together, and to savour the freshness of seafood.
Inspired by the “9 Layer Seafood” in the recent travels of the founders to Korea, K-Tower uniquely represents the latest gastronomical hit of the seafood tower that was recently sparked off in Korea. Keeping to the authentic Korean style of the seafood tower, fresh seafood is steamed within the tower, with varieties of seafood stacked up in tiers, where the essence of seafood trickles downwards and amalgamates in a steaming hot pot of goodness.
True to its belief that seafood must be enjoyed fresh and delivering the succulent juices of the ocean to your very tastebuds, K-Tower seeks to transform your dining experience when it comes to delicacies from the sea, by having live seafood tanks within the restaurant itself. As K-Tower says it, it’s all about “The goodness of the ocean, all in one steaming pot”.

Spiffy Dapper is not your typical go-to bar by all means. It's spunky, edgy, and full of character. Think dive-bar meets 1920s speakeasy - meaning each visit will be full of surprises!
Featuring a theme that's part rustic, part industrial chic, it's the ideal spot to come grab a cocktail during the week, or drown out all your worries on the weekends. While you're at it, we suggest grabbing some of their nibbles like the Whole Baked Camembert or Butter Garlic Shrimp, before imbibing their specialty tipples like the Sheik on the Level, a handcrafted drink with potent gin, black Turkish tea, lemon juice, and freshly ground cardamom. For something a little sweeter, the Glad Rags Sheba is perfect. With cane sugar and cinnamon infused apples in every sip, this drink is the liquid equivalent of a carnival candied apple.
Created by the same father-and-son team behind Moosehead – Glen and Daniel Ballis – Maggie Joan’s hollers “underground” from the word go.
This new restaurant occupies an old shophouse in the warren behind Amoy Street, with its front door opening to a backlane off a backlane. The entrance is through an iron door cut into a whitewashed wall that is blank except for a 2-D cutout spelling ‘Maggie Joan’s’ in the same anonymous steel as the door. Potted olive trees line the sides; the feel is of the backstreet tavernas and trattorias of the Mediterranean much ‘in the know’.
Step through the door into Maggie Joan’s, and you’re greeted by a fusion of industrial chic and stylized domesticity. The architecture reminds one of a bunker -- ‘underground’ in every sense of the word. But it’s a beautiful bunker; make no mistake.
Distinct ‘pockets’ of space have been styled to different characters: with the most ‘raw’ at the immediate entrance. The walls are stripped brickwork: rough and scarred, ruddy and grey in patches. The ceiling is beamed; the floor cemented; and the stretched wooden banquettes lining the walls resemble church pews. Functional track lights beam overhead and the feel is edgy and rugged. This 40-seat dining hall, the most expansive floor in the restaurant, is anchored by the floodlit open kitchen and bar, white-tiled, bustling, and ‘caged’ with wire fence.
Proceed to the narrower middle section, defined by three large hanging steel lamps looking like abandoned hollowed-out drums from a rock band. Golden light spews from the drums’ burnished interiors; and throw cushions soften the banquettes. A 4-person table – the only round table in the house – sits next to the kitchen, luxuriating under its own elegant crystal chandelier. The layout of the restaurant seems to have come about organically, the spaces becoming more intimate and ‘feminine’ as they flow inward.
Lastly, we come to the private dining room - the most distinctive in atmosphere, and styled like a traditional Mediterranean parlour. Furnished with 3 exquisite crystal chandeliers; plush elegant upholstery; and mirrors and patterned tile flooring, it is almost ornate in comparison with the rest of the restaurant, and redolent of the 2 namesake grandmothers. Potted plants decorate the parlour, as they do on shelves or on the floor throughout the restaurant: flashes of vivid green punctuating the industrial textures and colours.
With friend and co-owner Darren Micallef, the Ballis’ have put together a concept unique in Singapore: a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant with a strong underground vibe, serving an energetic, contemporary Mediterranean cuisine built on unremitting artisanship.
It begins with putting heart, mind, and creative soul into the process and making as many ingredients as possible from scratch “exactly like Grandma would”. It continues with using the freshest seasonal produce, crafting intensity and balance, and creating a menu rooted in the familiar flavoursof the Mediterranean, but innovatively ‘interpreted’. Head Chef Oliver Hyde, formerly of Pollen, helms the Maggie Joan’s kitchen and is dedicated to ensuring that the table becomes an occasion for bonding and a manifestation of the Mediterranean way of being and loving.
