The Izakaya-style menu, designed for tastings, serves up dishes in ‘small’ or ‘large’ portions and you are recommended to order six to eight small dishes to share between two people.
A look at the menu and you will notice the heavy use of classic, no-frills Japanese flavours in the condiments and among the assortment of "Bird Feed", is a cold dish of Chilled Cucumber with home-mixed crushed chilli peanuts, nori (seaweed) and goma (sesame), as well as the Tsukune Sliders, an east-meets-west combo of a Japanese meatball patty and a western slider bun, coupled with pickled kyuri (Japanese cucumber) and tare (soy basting sauce) aioli.
Keeping up with the fun-sharing concept, Neon Pigeon also offers a large format dining option of Barbecued Pork Shoulder for groups of four to six. With a two-day advance order required, the hearty fare of pork shoulder is slow-cooked for 20 hours and served in a black pepper teriyaki glaze, with a ginger scallion dipping sauce, bibb lettuce wraps, steamed buns, a spring onion salad, onigiri rice cake, kimchi and pickles to complement.
Also an integral part of the concept’s underground vibe is the Neon Pigeon bar. The bar’s Japanese-inspired drinks list includes a selection of Japanese beers and whiskeys, each a representative of different prefectures, as well as a curated list of spirits and Japanese inspired speciality cocktails. These include Throw A Kyuri-Ken, a vodka-based cocktail with a refreshing touch of lemon juice, yuzu and cucumber, as well as Harajuku Girl, a mix of gin, shiso leaf, and plum bitters.
The bar also houses a selection of sake of varying fragrances and complexity, including a range of Junmai, Daiginjo, Ginjo and Honjozo sakes, that were all hand-picked from sake distilleries across Japan to complement the dishes offered at Neon Pigeon.
Specially designed by US-based EDG Interior Architecture + Design, the Neon Pigeon space at The Working Capitol building on Keong Saik is built to own the vibe of a hidden spot off the main street only known to the locals, as a veiled corner of an urban metropolis. The exterior shows only a fluorescent pink pigeon, lit when in business, while the interior is paved with raw elements of steel and bricks that are softened with sophisticatedly designed wood finishing, giving the social hangout an urban grit with comfort and familiarity – an atmosphere reminiscent of Shibuya district in Tokyo or East Village in New York. A semi-open concept kitchen is also featured, with the action in the kitchen open for a close-up view.
A final and crucial touch to the space is the loud graffiti work plastered on the walls of the interior that gives the restaurant a touch of the underground New York City vibe. The team had specially commissioned local visual artist, ZERO to create these murals.
Hot on the heels of the popular halal-certified FIX Cafe, The Food Explorer F&B Group has just released the newest addition to their brand of casual eateries. Here comes FIX Grill, a casual mediterranean grill concept.
Built on the same promise as FIX Cafe, FIX Grill offers “Original Handmade Goods” of the edible kind and sets itself apart with a few choice touches.
The kitchen’s attention to detail can be seen in its range of creative appetisers, each component carefully put together to achieve a harmony of flavours in each dish. One such appetiser is the Watermelon and Prawn Salad. The watermelon cubes in the salad are first compressed, concentrating and enhancing the sweetness of each morsel, before being topped with contrasting flavours of crumbled feta, crunchy almonds and poached prawns and finished with a honey lemon verbena dressing.
Another appetiser not to be missed is the Hokkaido Scallops on Quinoa. These plump scallops are sweet & juicy and lend a delicious flavour to the bed of quinoa and grilled corn it sits on, perfectly complemented with a homemade romesco sauce.
Coming with a group of friends? The Assorted FIX Grill Platter of Skewers makes a great dish for sharing. This is no ordinary platter of meat cubes, expect creative items like Greek Beef Keftedes skewers, Lamb Moussaka skewers, Chicken Tsukune Yakitori skewers and Homemade Prawn & Fish Cake skewers, all grilled to perfection and served with a delicious homemade pumpkin mash and potato crisps.
There is a good selection of mains with sufficient variety to suit any palate. Pasta lovers can choose between the vegetarian Primavera Pasta, Seafood Pasta in a light broth or a hearty Homemade Beef Lasagna.
Meat lovers will delight in the Bone-in Beef Shortribs, slow-cooked for 24 hours to achieve a succulent texture and delicious beefy flavour. Or the Slow-Roasted Half Chicken which is tender, juicy and served with a porcini cream sauce.
Seafood lovers have not been missed with a FIX Lobster Roll featuring chunks of meat from a whole lobster tail in a creamy mayonnaise in a buttery soft homemade brioche bun. The Pan-seared Salmon on Wild Rice also makes for a great kid-friendly dish.
A perfect accompaniment to the dishes from the grill, FIX Grill also offers a range of Handcrafted Sodas made from fresh fruits and herbs. Take your pick from Strawberry & Sweet Basil, Pineapple & Passionfruit, Ginger & Lime or Kiwi & Mint, all refreshing in taste and delightfully colourful.
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.

Executive Chef Atsushi from Japan, brings over 15 years experience to Kuro-Gyu.

The Bar & Billiard Room at Raffles Hotel marks a new era with its return to a storied and sophisticated, yet relaxed bar and lounge specialising in whisky, original and imaginative cocktails, craft beers and high quality cigars.
Noted as the oldest existing bar in its original location in Singapore, the Bar & Billiard Room will now present up to 400 curated whiskies alongside an entirely new cocktail list and bar menu.
With a beautiful room and outdoor covered terraces, the unique and historic setting at Bar & Billiard Room naturally lends itself to the new evolution. The Bar & Billiard Room will also serve as an everyday meeting place as well as for special occasions.
Christoph B. Nyfeler shares his 16 years of whisky experience as Raffles Singapore’s Resident Whisky Expert. Of the 400 hand selected whiskies, many are limited editions and directly imported for the bar. The whisky list boasts a strong Scottish presence with a good selection of American bourbons and Japanese whiskies rounding off the collection.
To add special interest, Christoph will host whisky events such as whisky appreciation masterclasses and whisky dinners regularly. He can also create exclusive whisky pairing menus for groups and corporate events of up to 20 people. You can share your individual taste preferences with Christoph who will then customise a dinner menu where courses are paired with different types of single malt whiskies.
Equal attention has been given to the new whisky-led cocktails created by Raffles Singapore Restaurant and Bar Operations Manager Randolph Velasco and his award-winning bartenders. With special skills and knowledge of infused liqueurs and house-made bitters, the team have based the bar’s new concoctions on classic cocktails with a modern twist in Menu highlights include the BBR 1896, a nod to the year the Bar & Billiard Room was established. The complex cocktail is a delight for the senses; the bourbon is first fat-washed in butter for a creamy mouth feel and savoury flavour, mixed with Angostura bitters, smoked with chamomile tea leaves for a subtle, floral aroma and finally garnished with a slice of orange peel.
The Old Nick was a favourite tipple for navy officers who needed some liquid courage before heading out to sea. The Bar & Billiard Room’s version is a combination of Scotch whisky, thyme liqueur, Dom Benedictine, orange and lemon bitters. The comprehensive cocktail menu encompasses other base spirits such as gin, tequila and vodka as well. Look forward to the Miss “H”, Randolph’s take on the ubiquitous martini featuring kiwi, Cointreau, lime, and muddled kiwi fruit.
Bar bites include a selection of sophisticated nibbles and more substantial sharing plates. An array of cold and hot dishes can either be enjoyed as an accompaniment to drinks or as full-fledged meal. Menu highlights include Crabmeat Cigars, shredded fresh crab meat wrapped in vine leaves.
For a sweet finish in keeping with the bar's theme, Chocolate Whisky Stones are available in three different flavours – dark, milk and white chocolate. The chocolate is first melted down and infused with whisky before being placed in moulds to resemble the whisky stones commonly used to chill the spirit without diluting the drink.
The Bar & Billiard Room also houses one of the five original billiard tables from the turn of the century and you are invited to have a game over drinks. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the bar will feature live jazz.
The good people of Selfish Gene Café (SGC) are proud to announce the opening of Selfish Gene Patisserie (SGP). Located on level 2 above the café at 40 Craig Road, SGP is a patisserie with a difference – they serve plated desserts focusing on familiar flavours with modern presentation.
During the conceptualisation of SGP, their challenge was to present themselves in a new improved concept, but yet to retain their core culinary philosophy of homemade, quality food that appeals not only to the palate but also to a sense of familiarity. Finally, they decided to develop their core strength in making things from scratch and move their existing pastry preparation upstairs. In doing so, everything seemed to fall into place and SGP was born. SGP will operate independently from SGC as the concept and style of service differs. SGP will offer table service and present more interaction between the patisserie and customer.
After several months of testing and recipe development, SGP is proud to present seven different plated desserts. The desserts menu is ordered in increasing intensity of flavour starting with the light & fruity and leading to the more intense & robust ones. Some of the mentionable desserts include a Japanese inspired Soya which harmonises soya ingredients with tofu cheesecake, red beans, homemade mochi, red miso caramel and green tea ice-iream. There is also the Ginger featuring warm candied ginger pudding topped with a luscious sticky toffee and accompanied caramel ice-cream. All cakes and ice-creams/sorbets are made in-house.
SGP will serve as an event space for private/corporate events, meetings and product launches. In addition, they hope to be able to do pop-up dinners with guest chefs in the near future. And so, selfish Gene continues to evolve.
