HolyCrab is excited to begin the next adventure at their new home – the iconic Capitol Arcade, located in the cultural district in the heart of Singapore.
A forerunner of Singapore’s much loved private dining scene, HolyCrab originally offered the unique experience of dining in Chef Elton’s abode, more than a decade ago back in 2009. And how better to get guests’ hands off their phones? Keep their hands busy savouring some awesome crabs! And that, was how HolyCrab was borne, a lovechild of Chef Elton’s passion for both eating and cooking.
In 2017, Chef Elton decided to pull out all stops to take on the unchartered waters and challenges of opening a brick and mortar shop. HolyCrab was given life and body, in the shape of a quaint little 25-seater shophouse at its previous location of Tan Quee Lan Street.
The playfulness of HolyCrab’s creations has delighted many more guests since its humble beginnings. HolyCrab offers bold, distinct flavours, forged by a fiery need for “WokHei” (breath of the wok).
HolyCrab works with many different suppliers to bring you the freshest Sri Lanka crabs to the shores of our sunny island. Rest assured that all crabs at HolyCrab are of the highest quality and free from antibiotics. View their menu here.
There’s a new place in town where diners will experience the quintessential spirit, vibe and authentic flavours of a suburban American diner and it’s located right in the heart of the Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski. Think vinyl booths, checkered flooring, tiled walls, vibrant red leather seats and a fun vintage vibe complete with neon lights. Broadway American Diner features a collection of classic American comfort food comprising hearty and freshly-grilled hamburgers, rolls and toasts, tasty mac & cheese, classic milkshakes, irresistible sundaes and good ole American pie.
Broadway is the ideal rendezvous spot for families during weekends, friends get together for social gatherings and a relaxing lunch or dinner with officemates. Just like the foods you can find in America’s favourite hangout spots, Broadway offers its own take on American staples.
The Chilli Beef Hot Dog is immensely satisfying with smoked beef sausage, chilli con carne, pico de gallo and mozzarella cheese in a hot dog bun. A crowd favourite there is the Grilled Pulled Pork Sandwich served with coleslaw, arugula, cucumbers, pickles and barbecue sauce in a sandwich roll. A must-try is also the Philly Steak Sandwich that features juicy beef steak with bell peppers, onions, mozzarella and Colby cheese in a hoagie roll. For beautifully-stacked mess, the Double Black Angus Cheese Burger promises a satisfying seating of 100% Black Angus patty, topped with American cheese, red onions, cucumber pickles and Thousand Island dressing. For the ultimate burger experience, Broadway’s BBQ Beef Burger is for a more modest, but equally satiating counterpart, with beef patty served with fried onion rings, smoky bacon, cheddar cheese and an apple butter barbecue sauce.
Those who prefer white meat won’t be disappointed with the Buttermilk Chicken and Cheese Burger that serves up fried chicken with American cheese, cabbage slaw and a honey mustard dressing, as well as the Pork Jowl Burger with pulled pork, coleslaw, green apples, arugula, Dijon mustard and a smoky spicy ketchup. The buns used at Broadway American Diner are freshly-made from natural ingredients.
Choose your sweets from Belgian Waffles that comes with strawberry compote, whipped cream and your choice of ice cream; Pancakes with vanilla chantilly, maple syrup, cinnamon sugar and ice cream of choice; French Toast complete with lime mascarpone and spiced vanilla syrup; or a Traditional American Apple Pie with a dollop of whipped cream. For an icy treat, the Sundae is the real deal with vanilla chantilly, wafer sticks, Maraschino cherries and chocolate and strawberry sauce.You also won’t be disappointed with the Banana Split, levelled up with banana espuma, banana glaze, freeze-dried banana, rum and raisins, icecream and whipped cream. Simple tastes are catered for as well with ice cream and sorbets that come in ten flavours from Madagascar vanilla bean and strawberry gelato to ondeh ondeh and chendol. Wash it all down with six variations of milkshakes that range from classic flavours like strawberry and chocolate to chendol and Milo! Floats are also for order whether you favour rootbeer, Coke or Sprite. Rally the gang and pop by for old school fun, right there at Broadway American Diner in Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski.

Savoir Beds has launched its first Southeast Asian boutique at the Raffles Arcade. Savoir make fewer than 1,000 luxury handcrafted beds a year because they’re focused on making the best, not the most.
With over 14 global showrooms, from London to New York, Paris to Shanghai, Savoir’s mission is to provide every customer with the most comfortable and stylish bed imaginable. From the required support to the style of the home, dimensions, materials and fabrics can all be personalised. Beds for superyachts, headboards inspired by architecture and bespoke prints; anything that can be imagined can be made.
The Savoir story began in The Savoy Hotel, when in 1905 impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte unveiled an establishment revered for it luxurious creature comforts and legendary services. With no bed meeting his pioneering luxury standards, D’Oyly Carte set about creating one. The result is still made today, Savoir N°2 (the Icon) and the spirit of its creation governs Savoir’s approach to every bed it creates.
Skilled craftsmen work intently at individual oak trestles; the tapping of tacks, material in motion and calm conversation between colleagues. These are the Savoir Bedworks in West London and Wales, the antithesis of a production line. There are no hulking machines, just craftsmen hand-making a bespoke bed from inception to completion. Every bed is bespoke, from custom comfort to design details, made and signed by one master craftsman for one customer.
The newly-refurbished Raffles Hotel is also home to Rimowa's newest concept store.

Inspired by the aeroplanes of the pioneering era of aircraft construction, in 1937, Rimowa introduced aluminium into the manufacture of its suitcases, revolutionising the industry and creating their iconic design with parallel grooves.
In 2000, they pioneered again, creating the first polycarbonate case on the market. Designed and engineered in Germany, Rimowa combines heritage and craftsmanship with the rigours of modern technology. In 2017, Rimowa joined LVMH Group.
One of the most influential chefs in modern Chinese culinary movement, Celebrity MasterChef Jereme Leung makes his return to Singapore with contemporary Chinese restaurant, Yì by Jereme Leung at Raffles Hotel Singapore.
Nestled on the third level of the restored Raffles Arcade, Yì by Jereme Leung leverages on the art form of fine dining to awaken the appetite and the senses of guests. The restaurant delivers cuisine that takes guests on an exploration voyage to China’s vastly diverse cultural regions.

Be greeted by a whimsical entrance created by Moss & Lam, an art installation entitled ‘Pale Garden’ which is 90 feet long and cascades across the restaurant’s entryway, decorated with 1,000 handcrafted and individually strung floral strands.
Inspired by the Chinese myth surrounding the god, Pangu which depicts the creation of Heaven and Earth, Yì by Jereme Leung uses neutral earthy materials and tones like stone and timber to embrace the main dining hall as a reflection of ‘Earth’ while the custom ceiling details references the elements of the ‘sky’. This is reflected as diners step into the main dining hall of the restaurant which seats over 60 persons.
Three private rooms are available at Yì by Jereme Leung with one room that seats 10 persons while the other two adjoining rooms fit 8 guests each. Diners who want to enjoy the ambience of the main dining hall but yet prefer more privacy will delight in the semi-private area that can accommodate two tables of 8 guests each.
Enjoy Chef Jereme’s creations like the Hundred-ring Cucumber & Poached Sea Whelk with Soy Sauce Vinaigrette – a classic dish found in China’s Northern region during warm summermonths. The dish is skilfully sliced with a hundred cuts forming a continuous spiral and served with poached sea whelk, finished off with a tangy and refreshing homemade vinaigrette.
Fried Rice with Char Siew, Pork Belly & Pickled Long Beans
Chef Jereme Leung who was raised and educated in Singapore, began his culinary career at the age of 13, starting from the kitchens of Hong Kong. Throughout his career, he has mastered all four cornerstones of Chinese cooking ranging from dim-sum, Chinese barbecue, wok-cooking to knife work. Chef Jereme continued to hone his craft at some of the most prestigious hotels in Southeast Asia which gradually led him to embark on a food pilgrimage across China in the 1990s to explore the flavours of different regions, their ingredients and cooking techniques. He moved to Shanghai, China in 2002, and since then has opened over 9 restaurants across the world. Yì by Jereme Leung will be his first restaurant in Singapore and his long-awaited homecoming.
