To accommodate the growing number of their customers, The Fishwives which is known for providing sustainably grown gourmet food sans additives, chemicals, and genetic modification, opened its new larger outlet at Cluny Court in September.
Now with the 635 sq. ft. new store, The Fishwives owner Rebecca Forwood hopes to offer larger space to serve their customers as well as to accommodate a wider selection of ethically-produced meat and seafood alongside popular pastry offerings from homegrown Tiong Bahru Bakery.
The Fishwives was founded in Hong Kong in the early 1990s by Rebecca's mother and aunt. She then brought the brand to Singapore in 2001 where it was launched as an online shop. Eventually, the brand opened its first brick-and-mortar storefront in early 2014.
The Fishwives is a gourmet food emporium specialising in ethically and sustainably produced meat and seafood from New Zealand. The brand’s ethos revolves around being clean, green, and no nasties.
The Fishwives prides itself in being the exclusive retailer of pure BLACK, a hormone and antibiotic free grass-fed beef from Australia; Akaroa Salmon, an award-winning King Salmon product from a family-owned business in Canterbury, New Zealand; and Australia’s Oyster Coast Oysters, a group of 44 oyster farms claiming of supplying the best quality environmentally sustainable oysters.
Apart from its selection of fresh meat and seafood, they also bills itself as Singapore’s first independent store to offer freshly baked pastries by the popular Tiong Bahru Bakery. They offer a wide range of its signature bakes, including crowd-favourites croissants and Kouign Amann.
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.
The contemporary homeware store Maissone has opened in Tiong Bahru.
A one-stop-shop of unique and beautiful bed linen and exquisite homeware.
The brand was started by a passion for beautiful design and gorgeous interiors, ten years of travel and three kitchen sinks and many treasures from back street allies later Maissone was born.
Maissone continues to carefully select an exquisite selection of homeware products from around the globe. They exclusively bring to Singapore, New Zealand designed and made bed linen collections by Thread Design.
Their range of bed linen celebrates colour, style and simplicity. Emphasising clean lines and a fresh colour palette, Thread Designs collections are free of frills and fuss.

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.
