Ramen Champion is proud to announce that it will now house Gyumaru at its Bugis+ enclave. Gyumaru is the first ramen restaurant in Singapore to serve Gyukotsu Ramen (beef bone ramen), which is a rare dish in the ramen world.
A riff on the popular tonkotsu, the fully emulsified broth of the Gyukotsu Ramen boasts a clear consistency and a pronounced piquant flavour of beef fat. Relish the palate-enveloping note of the beef broth, which is made with beef bone and oxtail. The entire preparation takes two days to complete — the broth is first boiled for nine hours, before it is cooled and refrigerated for it to set into a thick and flavourful concentrate. Each beef broth cube is then simmered over low heat before it is served.
The broth is accompanied with springy thin noodles custom-made from a local Japanese noodle making specialist — for the doneness, there are two options to choose from: soft and hard. Thick tender cubes of well-marbled ribeye sourced domestically from a halal-certified supplier are placed atop the ribbons of al-dente noodles. Other ingredients including green onions and Japanese leek contribute delicate notes to the overall dish. Top the dish with the optional coriander for a local twist and additional fragrant lift!
Gyumaru is in the process of receiving its Halal certification — Muslim gourmands can very soon enjoy non-pork ramen!

With a rich culinary identity that spans over three decades, two generations, and multiple locations across and off the shores of Singapore, homegrown restaurant chain New Ubin Group is pleased to announce the opening of its third outlet, New Ubin Zhongshan Park, located along the outskirts of Singapore’s Central Business District, in the vibrant Balestier commune.
The 150-seat restaurant, residing at the ground floor of four-star hotel Ramada by Wyndham Singapore at Zhongshan Park since December 2018, is the hotel’s mainstay dining concept. This marks New Ubin Group’s first hotel restaurant, and is the second outlet the Group has opened in 2018. Earlier in February 2018, the Group opened its first upscale restaurant in the heart of the city, within the icnoic CHIJMES cluster. Prior to this, New Ubin existed as a single tze char eatery in Hillview Avenue—where it continues to reside—with previous incarnations in the rustic Sin Ming Industrial Estate, Sixth Avenue along Bukit Timah Road, Marina Country Club and Clementi.
Both openings put the family-run business on an exciting growth trajectory as it sets out to create a ‘Truly Singaporean’ tze char experience that can hold its own in any context, under the second generation leadership of chef and chief executive officer Alexander Pang, alongside founder and chief operating officer Pang Seng Meng, and the Pang family.
A joint partnership between New Ubin and HH Properties Pte Ltd, New Ubin Zhongshan Park will be jointly managed and overseen by Alexander and the hotel’s senior management, alongside, a “New Ubin taskforce” comprising of chefs and service staff from the original Hillview eatery. This is done to ensure that the motivation remains the same across all three existing New Ubin outlets – to bring a ‘Truly Singaporean’ experience that’s rooted in a confluence of hearty and innovative tze char, fresh produce and kampong-style hospitality.

The company first began as a manufacturer of military, club, and college repp ties that helped define 20th century British style.

It wasn't long before such royals as the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Kent were seen sporting Kent & Curwen.

An undeniable symbol of excellence used by King Richard, the logo made clear that the brand was as regal and distinguished as ever.
Inspired by the craft beer and fresh seafood culture of San Diego, Draft & Craft is a unique restaurant-bar concept that serves authentic Southern Californian comfort food and specializes in craft beer, unique cocktails and artisanal cheeses.
Draft & Craft was conceptualized and founded by a couple that moved here from San Diego, who wanted to bring the freshness and easiness of Baja-influenced So-Cal dining to Singapore. The essence of So-Cal dining is fresh ingredients and is usually accompanied with a craft beer or cocktail in a casual, breezy setting. “Draft” refers to the draft gourmet beers on tap, and “Craft” refers to the craft food, cocktails and artisanal cheeses offered.
Draft & Craft serves up “Baja-style” Mexican food, which is a popular staple in Southern California because of its emphasis on fresh produce and seafood with it being typically lighter on the stomach when compared to traditional Mexican fare. Their food is mostly made from scratch, with a few components carefully sourced and selected by their chef. Highlights of the menu include epicurean versions of grilled cheese sandwiches and tacos such as the Baja Fish which consists of beer-battered and fried fish fillet, pico de gallo, fresh shredded cabbage and homemade white sauce enveloped in a warm and soft flour tortilla. In addition, Draft & Craft hopes to introduce the concept of beer and cheese pairings. The effervescence and varying flavors of different beers serves to complement a wide selection of cheeses as they bring out the subtle notes in one another. The gourmet cheese-tasting platter, as well as individual cheese wedges offered on the menu as supplemental beer pairings, were handpicked by their cheese consultant, who owns several cheese bars in Portland, Oregon.
Driven by his passion in craft beer, their beers are lovingly curated by the owner who is a beer connoisseur and home-brewer himself. Some of the offerings on tap include Stone IPA, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Prairie Saison, and Anderson Valley Summer Solstice. The bottled beer list is constantly expanding and includes a good selection of IPAs, Trappist ales, stouts, porters and ciders.
For wine lovers, they have a selection of white and red wines carefully selected from a small and vibrant wine supplier. The wines offered are made from carefully tended vines, with minimal intervention in the cellar that is looked after by dedicated wine growers. The results are apparent- balanced, delicious and interesting wines which pair well with food. Cocktail drinkers can also choose from the craft cocktail menu that was specially concocted by the owner. The menu places a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients, such as “A Summer’s Day” which consists of champagne, elderflower liquor, and fresh cucumber honey water made from scratch daily.
Housed in a 1,000 square foot venue on the bustling Circular Road, in the heart of the Central Business District, Draft & Craft boasts an intimate setting with a capacity of 80 beer-loving patrons. Over at Draft & Craft, they hold the belief that the devil is in the details and they spare no effort in creating a great experience for you.
The latest, salubrious addition to the Craig Road stretch is PerBacco — an elegant Italian wine bar and restaurant helmed by chef-owner Marco Violano. In Italian, the word ‘PerBacco’ refers to Bacchus, the god of wine and good times and is also used as an expression of pleasure and surprise. It is, indeed, an apt name for an establishment that prides itself on offering an authentic, top-notch Italian bar and dining experience.
The long, spacious bar overlooks the charming street and offers an al fresco feel thanks to high chairs and tables arranged right by its large windows. Here, amid brick-lined walls and dark wood furnishings, Chef Marco offers an impressive range of whiskeys, rums, unpasteurised beers, Italian wines and other spirits, and a list of six classic cocktails including the Manhattan, Negroni, and Spritz. The cocktails are always made to perfection with premium spirits such as Fords London Dry Gin, High West Rye Whiskey and Bottega Gold Prosecco.
To accompany the drinks is a list of premium Ciccheti (Italian bar bites to share) that Chef Marco imports from Italy and stores in a beautiful cold room that forms part of the restaurant’s décor. There are cold cuts like Parma ham aged between 12, 24 and 36 months; mild and sweet small-batch salamenostrano; pure pork salame from Felino, a small town located in the Baganza valley; unctuous salame Milano; and soppressata, a dry salami native to Tuscany and Liguria. These are cut using a beautiful, traditional Tamagnini ham hand slicer brought in from Parma, Italy.
On the menu are refined classics from the Mediterranean, including Chef Marco’s signature homemade spaghetti chitarre (guitar spaghetti, in reference to the guitar-like tool used to make the noodles) with scampi and clay pot fregola (pasta made from semolina, similar to Israeli couscous) with fresh lobster.
Chef Marco makes it a point to import the finest ingredients from around the world, including beef from Kobe, Japan and lamb from New Zealand, which he cooks to deft perfection in his mixed grill. He also brings in seasonal vegetable, fruit and seafood such as mussels and clams from Italy twice weekly.
Spanning 1,000 sq ft, the store showcases apparel for both men and women.

Established in Brussels in 1829, the house has always enjoyed exceptional prestige and trust of connoisseurs, most notably the royal family of Belgium, holding the esteemed title of "royal warrant holder of the court of Belgium". Steeped in the spirit of Belgian surrealism, Delvaux's witty approach to all of its creations ensures each design carries a strikingly unconventional take on luxury.
Only the finest skins from the best tanneries in France and Italy are used for Delvaux’s products which are crafted by hand in their own workshops in Belgium and France. Architectural lines, daring proportions and innovative shapes are and have always been, key components of the house’s vocabulary.

The innovative boutique concept is created exclusively for Delvaux by Luxembourg-based artists, Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil, who participated in the Venice Biennale in 2011. They conceived elegant sculptural interiors for the boutiques, inspired by Flemish architecture and a boudoir-like aesthetic. Executed by the Italian firm, Vudafieri Saverino and Partners, a leader in luxury retail design and architecture, this original concept has recently been extended to Tokyo, Paris and London.
FYR Cycene Ond Drinc (pronounced as FIRE Kitchen And Drink) is the newest casual dining restaurant in central business district.
Against the backdrop of Chinatown’s historic allure, FYR promises an intriguing experience that harks back to a simpler time. Rustic décor and storied wall murals lend the restaurant a distinct olden-day charm. Even its moniker is as old as time — it is the etymology of fire. Fire is one of the most important elements in life, especially in cooking. They aim to peel back the layers of complexity to produce food that can bring you a lot of joy.
All of FYR’s cuisines and dishes are whipped up using the Josper Charcoal Oven. This culinary practice pays tribute to a time when food was cooked atop wood chunks and over a roaring fire. The chefs of FYR use lychee wood, which gives the dishes a wonderful smoky note that is tinged with sweetness.
FYR purveys an array of authentic, modern cuisines that perfectly captures the European culture. The chefs opt for herbs and spices found in the Southeast Asian region and use them to enliven the dishes. The dishes, varying from grilled meat to seafood, will be an instant hit with Singaporeans, who possess an inclination towards spicy food.
Some of the mainstays at FYR include: Baked Freshly-Shucked Oysters: noble sweet paprika, roasted garlic, chilli padi, spring onion and calamansi all lend a distinctive quality to the fresh and succulent oysters. Grain-fed US Holstein Cow Ribeye 365 Days: this glorious slab of ribeye, cooked to perfection, comes with house salad with java curry dressing and a choice of either buttered cassava or mashed potato.
Whole Maine Lobster: this gigantic lobster, sprawled across the plate, is bound to turn heads. The aroma of the shallot lemongrass béchamel will also waft through the air and whet appetites. Seafood Linguine: tossed with al dente pasta is a potpourri of seafood ingredients as well as lobster bisque, laksa leaves and Thai basil.
Wash these great cuisines down with FYR’s special concoctions. The Apple Rosemary is a delightful blend of fresh apple juice, fresh rosemary and infused lemon syrup. The tangy Lime and Mint is a mix of fresh lime, mint leaves and mint syrup, and will help to cleanse palates.
The Ginger Lemongrass, made with lemon tea, fresh ginger and lemongrass, will help to invigorate senses. The sweet Hibiscus Mint features hibiscus tea, fresh apple juice and infused mint syrup.
Another unique concoction that FYR offers is Grilled Fresh Fruit Juice – expect a rich and caramelized flavour as the bartenders grill the seasonal fruits before juicing. Merrymakers can also quaff the restaurant’s fine selection of red and white wines.

Designed by Hui Designs, it showcases painted wooden wall panels in coastal blue, brightly coloured tiles, oak wood and ‘old-world’ checkered vinyl tiles flooring, juxtaposed with cane furniture, baskets, bamboo blinds, nautical-themed artwork and palm trees.
The new space is modern and enticing and highlights how coastal touches can meet "old-world" tropical charm to compliment the natural setting. The Waterfront Bar now takes on a more seafood-focused menu with oysters and succulent seafood at the helm.
During the day, it is the perfect spot to escape the heat and refresh with a cold flute of champagne as you admire the yachts, while at night it transforms into a breezy alfresco bar complete with a starry canopy perfect for chilling out pre or post-dinner. Enjoy only the freshest and most in-season oysters sourced from France all the way to New Zealand.
With an eye on always exciting the palate and broadening horizons, Waterfront Bar will also bring in seasonal oysters with unique flavour profiles from all over the world so you will always have something new to look forward to. Aside from oysters, the menu showcases lobsters, crabs, calamari and fish as well as other nonseafood delights and desserts. Special seafood platters featuring the freshest catch are also available during weekend brunch.
To complement the seafood, Waterfront Bar also offers an extensive selection of boutique champagnes as well as classic cocktails, wines, beers and spirits.
