Masaaki's exquisite food creations are made using the finest of ingredients from all over Japan to produce flavours that are natural yet distinct, reflecting the ethos of Japanese culinary principles. Yet with each course, you can experience a fundamental respect of distinctiveness with each act of slicing to plating.
Chef owner, Masaaki Sakashita’s appreciation for fish started at an early age, growing up by the Kamo River in Kyoto, Japan. From his early years fishing, his mother even lamented that he would one day become a sushi chef, for he loved fish. Being the pickiest amongst 3 siblings, Masaaki will even refuse dinner if the food did not taste good, hence started his early relationship with food as a way of life. Masaaki was eager to learn the intricacies of fine Japanese cooking, and formally entered the industry at 18 years old; often arriving hours ahead of his peers such that he could finish his tasks and try his hand at other works.
Masaaki infuses traditional cooking techniques with Chef Masaaki's personal ingenuity to deliver omakase menus with a difference.
The modern contemporary decor with its pink dancing Gucci cranes and the use of room dividers to mimic undulating mountains to a cascading wave of washi sheets suspended high on the ceiling to embody the beauty of Japanese clouds transforms to its intentionally simple decor in the main sushi dining counter.

The Hainan Story, a 5-in-1 multi-brand Hainanese restaurant is now open at Hillion Mall. In tribute of the early Hainanese settlers who arrived on Singapore’s shores shortly after the British, The Hainan Story wants to preserve Singapore’s colourful food heritage while offering diners a wide range of delicious, traditional favourites.
Often affiliated with the F&B industry, the Hainanese community is widely known to brew the best coffee in town while cooking up a storm in the kitchen. At The Hainan Story, this legacy continues. Through its 5 different concepts, The Hainan Story features the work of numerous Hainanese chefs — both famous and up-and-coming — who work closely together to create comforting, nostalgia-invoking meals.

From the red wooden arched window louvres to wired pendant lamps and vibrantly coloured signages, design elements are evocative of that era.

Offering a completely different experience from its Esplanade branch, the new Barossa Bar & Grill at VivoCity shines the spotlight on dry-aged Australian beef and Josper oven-grilled lamb, poultry and seafood dishes. The Australian-inspired restaurant serves only the highest quality and carefully sourced meats from Australian farms.
Barossa specially curates its selection of Australian beef from four renowned brands. The Bass Strait range showcases 100% grass-fed beef — the cattle are raised on natural rye grasses and clover. Wanderer’s free-range beef offerings come from cattle that roam freely in paddocks and feed on barley. Josdale is an Australian pioneer of 100% grass-fed black angus; its cattle roam the verdant pastures of Gippsland in Victoria and are antibiotic- and hormones-free. Finally, Carrara’s array of multi-award winning wagyu is known for its superb texture and intense flavour, which are derived from first-class genetics and grain-fed for a minimum of 350-400 days. Their cattle is traced from birth to ensure biosecurity and meat safety while providing the best animal welfare.
In addition, the restaurant boasts its own dry-ageing fridge, the Dry Ager®. The bigger cuts such as porterhouse and tomahawk are aged for 50 days while the smaller cuts such as tenderloin and striploin are aged around 25 days. The natural enzymes in the meat break down some of the collagen, resulting in a tenderer texture. During the dry-ageing process, the beef also loses a percentage of its total weight due to water evaporation, which causes the flavour to become more concentrated and intense.
The restaurant overlooks the tranquil water leading to Sentosa Island, making it an ideal address for sedate sessions replete with tête-à-têtes. Perfect for casual gatherings, its special al-fresco menu features tapas from just S$6, cheese platters (from S$28) and pizzas (from S$24). Kick back and relax with offerings such as Japan Sakoshi Bay Oyster ½ Dozen, Chipotle Buffalo Wings, Truffle Fries and Char-grilled Prawns with Spicy Citrus Dressing.
Barossa carries about 10 wine labels from Australia as well as a wide selection of white and red wines from Italy, New Zealand, France and South Africa. Classic cocktails such as mojito, pina colada, amaretto sunrise and tequila sunrise are available here as well.
Restaurant Euphoria by Chef Jason Tan is an extraordinary fine dining destination where joyful and imprinting memories are forged through its Gastro-Botanica journey.
In 2014, Jason created Gastro-Botanica, an original culinary philosophy showcasing carefully sourced and prepared premium vegetables, meats and seafood, where prominence and elaboration are given to botanical elements of vegetables, tubers, herbs, spices, and fruits.
Through it, Jason found the relentless impetus to innovate, push boundaries, and reimagine existing conventions. While in Restaurant Euphoria, Gastro-Botanica illuminates its every aspect, from concept and design to cuisine and tableware.
Throughout his career and to satiate his curious mind and natural wanderlust, Jason travelled widely, eating and exploring the foods of the world. He combined these insights with his Asian roots and a deepening passion for botanicals to create Gastro-Botanica in 2014. Jason raised Gastro-Botanica to an exquisiteness that saw him lauded as the first and only Singaporean chef to receive both a ranking on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants from 2016 to 2020, and one Michelin star from 2016 to 2019, during his tenure as Chef and Co-owner of the Corner House.
Served to dignitaries such as Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, China’s President Xi Jinping, the President of South Korea, the Prime Minister of Israel, the Sultan of Brunei and the Prince of Johor, Gastro-Botanica became synonymous with Jason as a trailblazing chef.
Intent on taking Gastro-Botanica further, Jason elevated its practices and principles, creating a cuisine that gave even more prominence and significance to botanical elements; and in the process stretching the limits of French gastronomy. He calls it Gastro-Botanica 2.0, and made it the raison d’etre for Restaurant Euphoria.

This month, SPRMRKT joins a new neighbourhood – the verdant and idyllic Dempsey Hill, with an inspired space and a new cultural-culinary experience through dining, retail and art.
2012 saw the beginnings of the lifestyle F&B brand in a shophouse on McCallum Street favoured by city dwellers as an oasis to the hustle and bustle of CBD life. Eight years later, SPRMRKT has grown into a familiar neighbourhood name; from the bustling central business district to the riverside respite of Robertson Quay, quaint Cluny residential area, and now, at the heart of the Dempsey Hill lifestyle enclave.
Just like its name without the vowels, SPRMRKT is about simplicity, focusing on what matters. At the heart of it is responsibly sourced ingredients prepared meticulously to let their natural flavours shine; warm, friendly service centred on the diner; a showcase of carefully sourced gourmet brands from Singapore and around the region with the aim of giving back; and thoughtful collaborations that support young artists and creatives.
Another reason to drop by SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill is the house-baked goods fresh from the oven, enticing with their lingering aroma. The range varies daily and includes breads, pastries and tea cakes, as well as must-haves like the Olive Oil Cake and Chiffon Cake in flavours of lychee, strawberry and pandan.
Exclusive on the weekends, listen out for the ice cream man ringing the bell as SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill brings a little nostalgia to the neighbourhood with the Durian Semifreddo Wafer Sandwich. The frozen semifreddo is house made with luscious D24 durian pulp cocooned in a crispy wafer with vanilla and caramel notes; great for on the go or at the breezy veranda.
Over the past eight months, Singapore’s foremost gluten-free bistro The Butcher’s Wife has played host to Drunken Farmer, a travelling natural wine bar and consultancy belonging to the same Spa Esprit Group portfolio of F&B brands. Guided by Drunken Farmer’s natural wine expert Eduardo Bayo, The Butcher’s Wife then revamped their wine programme to focus solely on wines that are organic, biodynamic, natural, and sustainable. Since making the switch to champion a 100 per cent gluten-free lifestyle in 2017, this natural wine programme compliments one of the most exciting chapters the Tiong Bahru backstreet bistro will soon embark on: a shockingly simple approach to gluten-free dining by new Brazilian head chef Mariana Campos that favours all manner of funk, is great for the gut and delicious to the very end.
To cater to diners and regulars who cannot get enough of these natural wine offerings and a pandemic that’s changing the way we eat and drink, The Butcher’s Wife has launched Singapore’s very first brick and mortar natural wine retail space. Curated by Drunken Farmer, retail offerings include popular labels that diners have discovered while dining at The Butcher’s Wife, including its monthly 5 Bites 5 Wines event organised in collaboration with Drunken Farmer and many more surprises, at to-go prices.
Following the kick-off of the natural wine retail format at The Butcher’s Wife, the retail to-go concept might be replicated to cater for the neighbourhoods the other SEG F&B outlets are located in, so wine lovers can rejoice in the fact that a bottle of natural wine is always in close reach.
Lumo is a new cocktail bar and restaurant unlike any other. Because its genesis is unlike any other, where Light is at the centre of its being: inspiring and driving it.
Light, a substance so banal yet ineffable, fills the 70-seat bar and restaurant in Boat Quay: suffusing it with its qualities, its values, its symbolism. ‘Lumo’ is a word in Esperanto, an artificial language, that means ‘light.’ Picking it for a name underscores one of LUMO’s defining principles – community – since Esperanto was created in 1887 as a means to unify peoples across the world through a universal lexicon.
Lumo comprises two distinct spaces – a bar and an open kitchen. A cool Scandinavian theme unifies the interior, featuring a muted palette and wood, leather and warm lighting to evoke a the feel of nicely furnished house party. Seating is informal and ‘democratic’ with high stools, counter seats, booths and dining settings inviting lots of social interaction. For instance, head over to the high tables set at a height of 95cm – ideal for both seated meals and for diners who prefer to stand and mingle. Each space also has its own ambience in sync with different playlists, underscoring the overarching message of Lumo – that any person can find his or her place on this earth, to exist and flourish under the same light.
The Modern European dishes of Head Chef Martin Wong and his team showcase key ingredients with finesse, and present them in a familiar and approachable manner. Just as light can both unify and contrast, dichotomies are explored in order to achieve a creative balance. For instance, a combination of wood-fire cooking and modern methods is applied. So are other traditional methods such as pickling, fermentation, ageing and brining, which are coupled with cutting edge technology such as Centrifuge and Thermomix to intensify flavours and achieve complexity.
The recipes are designed to complement the cocktails, with flavours supporting the drinks as diners progress from low-ABV to higher ABV’s as the night rolls along. And in line with Lumo’s inclusiveness, the cuisine is planned with an eye to dietary requirements and preferences.
Head Bartender Josiah Chee and his team eschew any fixed ‘style’, instead harmonising the Japanese and American approach to mixology to deliver a coherent experience that takes in social interaction, recommendations, showmanship and presentation. Concoctions stem from traditional recipes coupled with evolving trends, and are inspired by the things people eat and drink every day – the ‘fundamentals of life.’
The launch menu focuses on Breakfast, a daily staple. The cocktails are conceptualised around the prismatic nature of light, represented by 7 categories corresponding to the 7 constituent colours of natural light. Ranging from low to high ABV, each category is based on a study of ingredients – Brew, Milk, Fruit, ABC, ImpossibleTM Salad, Toast, Treat – distilled through culinary methods to be presented in their purest form.

The Blue Ginger has come a long way and has finally established their 2nd branch at the newly-revamped Great World City.
The inspiration behind their starting “blue ginger” cannot be fully explained without first sharing with you the aspects of peranakan culture. As a peranakan, the signature of a well-bred “Nonya”, or Straits Chinese lady, was how well one could cook. It was often the matriarch of the family who would bring the entire family together, over a mouth-watering spread of spicy and aromatic dishes.
Their journey of rediscovery was prompted by the fond memories of hearty feasts at grandma’s. The Blue Ginger was created simply through their desire to share their unique culture with others.
Today, the restaurant is run by a team of people who are passionate towards this end.

Some people dream of castles and others dream of white picket fences. Food brother Bjorn Shen dreams of a small room where he can unleash all his wildest ideas. In late 2019, that dream became reality – and from 2020, he lets 4 persons into the room to play with him: Small’s officially opens to the public in February 2020.
Small’s is a tiny room that's attached to Bjorn Shen’s flagship restaurant, Artichoke. Originally his office, it was converted into a studio for culinary research and development; at heart, it’s Bjorn’s man cave. At Small's, he experiments with things and ideas that get called oddball by some, genius by others. Now it’s open to public three days a week as an omakase counter where he can show and tell his guests what he’s been up to.
Small’s is as personal as it gets. If – as restaurateurs are won't to say – Artichoke is Bjorn’s ‘house’, then Small’s is his man-cave.
Everything in Small’s has been personally handled by Bjorn, right down to the installation of the long pendant light that glows white and purple; and the ever- changing playlist that reflects his mood and thoughts. His cheeky sense of humour is evident from ceiling to floor – at the top of the walls, multiple Borats give cheery thumbs-ups to guests.
He’s even put some of his most cherished objects and memories to “work”. Tableware includes ceramic plates handmade by his sister-in-law, and flatware he inherited from his grandparents; and a small fish tank recalls his youth where he was put to work in a little pet shop by his father.
In short, eating at Small’s is a private dining experience – one on four, face to face – that Bjorn has never been able to offer before.
Bjorn is chef-owner of Artichoke, and author of the Artichoke cookbook. Notorious for his rebellious personality and outlandish style of cooking, Bjorn has earned significant industry recognition over the years. Outside of starting food brands Artichoke, Bird Bird and Neh Neh Pop, Bjorn wrote a monthly column titled ‘Bjorn Says’ for Time Out magazine, lectured at the Culinary Institute of America, and actively consults on menus for restaurant openings. Industry accolades that he has accumulated over the years include ‘Chef of the Year 2013’ - SC Global, ‘Rising Chef of The Year 2015’ finalist - World Gourmet Summit, ‘Best Local Chef 2016’ - SG Readers’ Choice Awards, and ‘WGS Best 20 Chefs 2016’ - World Gourmet Summit. Bjorn is also frequently on television, having most recently featured as judge on MasterChef Singapore on Mediacorp’s Channel 5, and also on programmes such as MasterChef Asia and Secret Eats, and in lead roles on Eat List Star Season 2 and The Ultimate Brocation.
Experience the award-winning taste of Mott 32, as the lauded restaurant presents its authentic Chinese cuisine in Singapore for the first time. The name “Mott 32” pays homage to 32 Mott Street in New York, where the city’s first Chinese convenience store opened in 1851. The store served as the nucleus for what is now a vibrant Chinatown in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
Their chefs utilise the latest in modern and innovative cooking techniques from around the world to bring the best out of time-honoured recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Their signature dishes include the Apple-Wood Roasted Peking Duck, Barbecue Pluma Iberico Pork Glazed with Yellow Mountain Honey, Iberico Pork with Soft Quail Egg and Black Truffle Siu Mai, and Crispy Triple Cooked Wagyu Beef Short Rib.
The provenance of each ingredient is of paramount importance to them. Ethical sourcing by using organic and sustainable ingredients wherever possible, while also working closely with farms, ensures the uncompromising quality of the food presented.
To complement the dishes, their original mixology programme is inspired by Chinese culture and the flavors of Asia. It is this particular level of modernity, combined with a respect for tradition, that makes Mott 32 so spectacularly unique.
Beyond the food, a cohesive story of East meets West is told through the blend of industrial New York design and classical Chinese décor of every Mott 32 location. At Mott 32 Singapore, elements reminiscent of the Hong Kong flagship store are interwoven with Singapore's rich foliage and flora – a celebration of the shared history and connection between the two Asian metropolises.

GrabFood commits to merchants’ growth through a merchant platform and launches GrabKitchen in Hillview with over 10 F&B brands, including 3 virtual restaurants and the latest GrabFood Hub.
Based on consumer surveys and insights derived from the Grab app, consumers in Northwest Singapore wanted greater variety of healthy foods, burgers and local foods. Specifically in Bukit Batok, bubble tea, mala, and soup were not only the most frequently searched for items on GrabFood, but also saw significantly higher consumer demand than merchant supply.

To address this gap, GrabFood brought an eclectic mix of over 10 F&B brands into its first GrabKitchen in Singapore, offering a wide selection of food options. GrabKitchen features:
10 restaurants including three new virtual restaurants namely Lady Boss Mala by the founder of Thai Dynasty; Waboru by JR Group as well as Tiffin Walla by Co-Kitchens.

Beverages by Playmade, one of Singapore’s bubble tea darlings who has made its first foray into the West with GrabKitchen.
Consumers in surrounding Hillview districts such as Cashew, Bukit Batok, Bukit Gombak and Toh Tuck can have food and drink options delivered on-demand to their door via the Grab app, while those who do not mind taking a short walk to GrabKitchen can opt to dine-in at the location or choose the self pickup option in-app to save on delivery fees.
