Wildly popular in Australia, thanks to its customisable menu made from the freshest quality ingredients, Mad Mex has powered into Singapore with its first restaurant in Singapore that recently opened at Marina Bay Financial (MBFC) Tower 3.
With more than 70 locations now operating in Australia and New Zealand, the dedicated Mad Mex team has served up more than four million burritos across both countries in the last 12 months. The success of the group has spurred the new international expansion and coincides with Mad Mex’s new 2019 brand refresh and positioning, ‘Fresh Fuel For Life’, which places arevived focus on healthy living and supporting people in living life to the fullest.
The latest move comes after the owner of 4FINGERS bought a 50% stake in Mad Mex last year. The brand is looking forward to more openings in Singapore and Malaysia, where its arrival could fill a gap in the food industry with honest, healthy ‘fast food’.
With Mad Mex there is no ‘burrito-ing’ round the bush; only fresh, ethically-sourced ingredients are used in its food every day. So pure and simple, the recipes used are available online along with a nutritional calculator for full transparency into what customers are eating. Customary Mexican favourites – Burrito, Naked Burrito, Tacos, Nachos, Quesadilla, Grande MeltTM and Ensalada – are served and customers are encouraged to customise their meals according to their dietary requirements – anyone can eat at Mad Mex.
Founder and CEO Clovis Young of Mad Mex sums up the ingenuity of Mad Mex’s humble but revolutionary ethos, “I started Mad Mex in 2006, because I absolutely love Mexican food, and I wanted to share that love with all of Australia, and the world. I wanted my customers to get a fast meal with homemade quality, made entirely of real ingredients. That means the fewest preservatives, oils and sugars – while always big on taste. You should never have to choose between a quick meal and quality healthy food.”

Get ready for the resurgence of The Dragon Chamber, now better than before. Hidden behind a fridge at a Circular Road local coffeeshop (kopitiam), this speakeasy restaurant and bar marks a new partnership between Ebb and Flow Group and Tung Lok Group. The 45-seater is helmed by Ebb and Flow Group Creative Director Norman Hartono and Operations Director Pio Subramaniam, who have spent a great amount of time finding a new location to house The Dragon Chamber. The Dragon Chamber was previously hidden within Lokkee at Plaza Singapura.
"Dragon Chamber is for people who are looking for an adventure around every corner and want to push the boundaries of traditions and Chinese food. We focus on embodying the rebellious spirit of creation rather than just making food that sells," said Norman Hartono, Creative Director of Ebb and Flow Group.
The Dragon Chamber is more than just a Chinese restaurant where guests come to dine and then leave. Right off the bat, it offers an immersive experience; one that’s filled with intrigue. Arrive at the unassuming kopitiam and enter The Dragon Chamber through the glass fridge door; you must decide if you dare to make the perilous journey into an otherworldly realm.
Once you have made the bold decision to do so, you will be plunged into a world that is reminiscent of Chinatown gambling dens and secret society hangouts. The walls are covered with artworks from local and regional artists such as Sabotage, Mister Tucks and Riandy Karuniawan, referencing past and recent Chinese traditions.
The Dragon Chamber is for diners who are looking for a culinary adventure at every turn. Dare to step into a restaurant that pushes the boundaries and traditions of Chinese cuisine. Overseeing the kitchen team is Chef Wong Meng Ooi. The 36 -year-old started his love affair with the culinary arts from an early age, and has over 20 years of experience under his belt.
Slated to open on 1st April at this new location, the “secret society” restaurant will offer access to a 32-seater kopitiam as well as a full-fledged 12-seater bar that opens till late. The kopitiam will serve breakfast and lunch, offering classics such as wanton mee, toast and the aromatic kopi.
A must-try from the kopitiam is the Singaporean classic wanton mee, which comes in two versions, dry or soup. Flavourful minced pork meat is wrapped within silky smooth dumpling skin before being poached to plumpness and served with springy thin noodles. To complete the dish, diners may choose to add on their noodles with char siew or roasted chicken.
Drawing inspiration from the multi-faceted flavours of Asia, the fresh and innovative bar is giving classic concoctions an Asian makeover. The intoxicatingly imaginative oriental cocktails served pay nostalgic homage to traditional ingredients used in Asian cooking such as tea, Chinese five spice and gula melaka. All syrups and infused liqueur are thoughtfully curated and made in house.
Need somewhere quiet and spacious for group gatherings? Rendezvous at their private dining area, which seats 24 guests, or the VVIP area, which holds up to 12 guests.

The singular main course on the menu is complemented by a wide array of starters and 15 kinds of desserts. Choose from starters like the traditional French Escargots de Bourgogne (6 snails prepared with parsley butter and garlic) and delectable desserts like the crowdâpleasing Old Fashioned Crème Caramel with a traditional almond tuille.
An all-day dining venue situated at the crossroads of Telok Ayer district, 51 Soho lends itself perfectly as a space for both work and play. Their offerings evolve through the hours, and reflects their human-oriented approach.
In short, 51 Soho encompasses all that is needed in a day for work and play.
An airy light-filled space framed by alfresco-facing ceiling-high windows facing the hustle and bustle of 51 Soho's central downtown location; a stylish full-fledged coffee and cocktail bar full of character in both its form and beverages; thoughtful menus that progress to support hour-to-hour culinary requirements; and that modern-day essential, complimentary high-speed wifi – these are the foundation for the new heart of this vibrant neighbourhood.
51 Soho is designed to foster a social experience. The goal is that you feel that you’ve found the place and the people that you’ve always been searching for.
Natural materials such as brick and wood dominate the interiors vis-à-vis the walls, the bar and the furniture; black steel panels add an urban edge. Up-close observation reveals a delightful and highly Instagram-mable surprise: the patterns alternate between geometrical inspirations to charming cut-outs of birds, teapots and cups.
At 51 Soho, whether you need a quick lunch alone or to entertain a 10-person group of drinkers, the space and staff are quick to respond to your needs.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the hours in between: the menus of 51 Soho seamlessly meets the ever-changing culinary requirements you might have in a day.
Breakfast options are easy and delicious. The Breakfast Overnight Oats ($9.90) rich with berries and other seasonal fruits or a fresh-baked Croissant with Ham and Cheese and Scrambled Eggs ($10.90) satisfy a lighter appetite whilst those who believe in eating like an emperor in the mornings would be delighted with options like the Big Breakfast, ($14.90) a platter which includes sausage, hash browns, pan-fried tomatoes, sunny side-ups and an English muffin with marmalade.
Lunch at 51 Soho is a study in how to elevate the one-bowl meals. Fulfilling the community’s needs for speed, taste and wholesome nutrition, a vast plethora of carefully prepared options – protein and carbohydrate, toppings and add-ons – allow for creative customisation of the meal according to individual constitution and needs.
51 Soho’s dinner menu is a development of the motif tying the breakfast and lunch menus – the familiar is elevated with premium ingredients, thoughtful preparation, and a witty, tongue-in-cheek hat-tip to local culinary preferences.
The golden sunlight that gilds the custom-built bar running almost the entire length of the space brings out yet another fact of 51 Soho. Drinkers will find their attention especially commandeered by the cocktails.
A beautiful list of classics, with a twist, is available but it’s the five 51 Soho Specials that will linger in the memory. Original recipes one and all, the Specials are nonetheless rooted in meticulous research and development. Resounding especially strongly was the history of punch drinks and shooters (or shots) – their celebratory nature; the flexibility of the basic recipes; and the stories – apocryphal or not! – that surround them. In fact, both Difford’s and Vice notes that historically, punch was the drink of choice for high society.
The 51 Soho Specials are a contemporary materialisation of cross-cultural references. Chinese rice wine, plum wine and bamboo wine form the base of the Specials. These, each with its own centuries-old heritage and character, have long since been lost to the serious drinker.
Minka is a Japanese restaurant specialising in Kaisendon (seafood rice bowl) for lunch hours and Sushi Omakase for dinner hours. (for dinner).

The Monarchy Cocktail Bar & Ultra Lounge at 56 / 58 Tras Street offer a long-awaited, permanent and spiritual home for the wildly popular Monarchy nights that were acclaimed for playing host to both Royalty and celebrities alike on the rooftop of OUE Bayfront. The Monarchy is the brainchild of nightlife veterans, Robbie Hoyes-Cock, the CEO & Founder of the world's most glamourous Formula 1 weekend after-parties The Podium Lounge; and Steve Yallop, former Executive Director of Pangaea at Marina Bay Sands, who have been organising star-studded high society club nights in Singapore since 2005.
Set in a heritage shophouse spread over 3,600 square feet in the heart of the CBD, this quintessentially British cocktail bar exudes understated luxury and bears a distinctly regal theme, celebrating the Royal Houses of Normandy to Lancaster and Tudors to the Windsors.
Helmed by General Manager Rob Scott, former Group Beverage Director of Burnt Ends, Meatsmith & Rogue Trader, The Monarchy offers a carefully curated menu of timeless cocktails through the ages, and will introduce a new cocktail list quarterly, enabling guests to take multiple journeys through the history of Great Britain's most popular tastes and tipples of the day.
The opening cocktail list “Cool Britannia” is named in celebration of the modern, outward-facing Britain of the 1990s and the period of increased pride in the giddy cultural fantasia of the United Kingdom – the name itself a pun on the title of one of Britain's most patriotic songs, ''Rule Brittania''.
In a tip of the hat to Britain’s constitutional monarchy, guests enter the premises through a front door that is identical to the iconic home of the British Prime Minister, 10 Downing Street.
On weekends and eve of public holidays from 10pm, as the night builds up and the lights go down, the music starts pulsing and The Monarchy’s dazzling ultra lounge space comes alive as the entire venue transforms into one club. A hidden door at the end of the 8 metre long cocktail bar swings open to reveal a dark and intimate boudoir lined with leather Chesterfields and dancing platforms, where guests can party with the best house music DJs and live celebrity acts.
The 7 VIP tables named after British icons: Sir Winston Churchill, Dame Helen Mirren, Audrey Heburn, Amy Winehouse, George Michael, John Lennon and Hugh Grant; provide a home-away-from-home for those who crave a more sophisticated and private, late-night experience.
The Monarchy has brought together what is possibly the best bar team in Singapore, bringing unprecedented experience from many of the island's most acclaimed venues: 28 HongKong St, Employees Only, 1880, Lulu's, Pangaea and The Cufflink Club to name a few.
The Royal Jesters look forward to entertaining you at The Monarchy soon. God Save The Queen!

Using only the freshest and finest ingredients of the season, Chef Kenji Okumura’s creatively intriguing menu includes his signature teppanyaki dishes.

Located on the ground floor of the soon-to-open Six Senses Maxwell and lined with lush tropical foliage is Cook & Tras, a social library restaurant & bar influenced by heritage Straits cuisine.
This establishment will feature a specially curated book collection designed by the UK’s Ultimate Library. Known for their dedication to building bespoke book collections for hotels and private residences around the world, they have put together a storied collection of titles that reflect the local neighborhood as well as volumes on subjects such as wellness, meditation, nutrition, herbal medicine, natural history, climate change and sustainability.
Designed by famed French designer Jacques Garcia (think NoMad New York), the plush décor of Cook & Tras creates a warmly intimate atmosphere set in a fully curated social library, with richly textured custom-designed furnishings.
Open throughout the day for light breakfasts and an all-day “small-plates for sharing” menu, the venue also has a bespoke cocktail programme on offer.
Melding Singapore’s rich heritage and European tradition, Six Senses Maxwell debuts on December 1, 2018 as the second landmark urban property in the Six Senses collection of hotels, following the Six Senses Duxton opening in April. Both hotels occupy historical buildings in Chinatown’s Tanjong Pagar district and each radiates its own distinct personality and charm, while reflecting the neighborhood’s past as a trading center and current status as a vibrant downtown cultural enclave.
Housed in a colonial-style 19th century heritage building, the 138-room Six Senses Maxwell will feature a historically significant Indentures Collection. These comprise vintage land transaction documents that offer a fascinating glimpse into the development of Singapore and the Straits Settlements in the 1800s and early 1900s. The collection represents an historical “paper trail” tracing modern Singapore’s evolution from its beginnings as a swampy, untamed trading port established by Stamford Raffles and William Farquhar for the East India Company to its time under the British Crown, and finally its emergence as an independent nation in 1965.
This rich sense of intertwined Asian and European history is tastefully imbued in Six Senses Maxwell’s warm and stylish interior, fashioned by the famed designer Jacques Garcia with alluring touches in burnished timber finishes and lightened up with elegant paintwork.
“Our Six Senses Maxwell property brings alive and celebrates the heritage and traditions of Singapore’s past, while reflecting a warm European influence and personality,” says General Manager Murray Aitken. “Guests here and at Six Senses Duxton not only have the opportunity to utilize facilities at both properties, they will also be able to truly appreciate the cultural and historical backdrop that makes these experiences special and true to the local culture.”
Keeping with local customs, Six Senses Maxwell will also be home to a traditional ice cream tricycle where complimentary Singaporean Ice Cream Sandwiches will be served by an “Uncle” (a respectful term of address for an elder male in Singapore) to hotel guests. Made of a slab of ice cream wrapped up in a slice of rainbow- colored bread, these longstanding local favorites come in a variety of flavors, ranging from chocolate, mint and mango, to more unique twists such as sweet corn, durian and red bean, all made using only organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. In line with Six Senses’ sustainability practices, the ice cream tricycle will use a solar-powered generator to keep the ice cream sandwiches refrigerated.
Six Senses Maxwell features five spa pods, each with an ensuite bathroom, where you can unwind with a selection of holistic wellness and beauty treatments administered under the guidance of expert therapists and visiting practitioners. There is also a relaxation room and an outdoor rooftop lap pool with a sundeck, bar and lounge area. Next to the lap pool, a modern gym features cardio equipment, weights machines and functional training elements where guests can enjoy fun workouts at all levels.
A Special Opening Offer is available for direct bookings online via sixsenses.com. Guests can enjoy a 15 percent savings on the Best Available Rate and the offer includes daily breakfast for 2 people, a guaranteed room upgrade and a signature cocktail for 2 persons. *Terms & Conditions apply.

Instead of focusing on dishes from a certain geographical region, Preludio adventures into the territory known as “Author’s Cuisine.”

The entire guest experience will change according to themes chosen by Executive Chef Fernando Arévalo. Much like a couture house that launches a new collection every season, Preludio will release a new chapter every 12 to 18 months.

For its debut, Preludio will open with “Monochrome”, where the restaurant will be inspired in black and white. The team approached the theme of monochrome with a sense of liberation instead of limitation. Imagining in this concept provoked them to explore and invent new definitions of black and white, brainstorming with a spiritedness that materialised freely.
Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Chef Fernando Arévalo graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, and began his career in Michelin- starred kitchens alongside iconic culinary artists Daniel Boulud, Bill Telepan and Mario Batali. For the past 6 years, he has been based in Singapore, heading the kitchens of Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse and Artemis Grill.
Ambitious, creative and driven, he is ready to set on his own path as the head of Preludio’s impassioned and adventurous team.
Preludio will welcome guests on 8 November and is currently open for reservations.

While using top ingredients is not unique per se, Marco’s signature cooking style is: in his cuisine, the core ingredient becomes the main actor in the opera. Each dish has one ingredient at the center of the flavor experience. While the presentations are at times a contrast of colorful and complex textures, Marco’s dishes create a balance of supporting flavors, similar to how supporting artists dance in harmony, in the background of the leading act.
This philosophy is pushed to its boundaries at Guccio, with critics sometimes claiming that a blindfolded customer would always be able to recognize the chief ingredients in the dish she is eating. This style won chef Marco a Bib Gourmand from the prestigious Michelin Star Guide for two years in a row, in 2016 and 2017.

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.
âA 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.
