Chef Christophe Lerouy (formerly of Alma by Juan Amador) has started a brand new modern French restaurant, Restaurant Lerouy, on Stanley Street.
Diners get to sit around the eye-catching long & winding counter which frames the open kitchen.
There are three-, five- and seven-course tasting menus to select from for lunch and dinner. For the month of December, chef Lerouy will work his magic and presents his version of Christmas foie gras creation.
Originally from France, the decorated chef Lerouy brings with him a myriad of food cultures and techniques from his culinary exploits around the world. He spent his formative years receiving a strong foundation in classical French techniques under the tutelage and apprenticeship of Michelin-starred chefs Christian Le Aquer (Le Pavillon Ledoyen) and Guy Martin (Le Grand Vefour), Pourcel Brothers (Le Jardin des Sens). Thereafter, he worked in Los Angeles, Shanghai, Marrakech, Abu Dhabi and one year in Singapore in 2008 when he was sous chef The Lighthouse Restaurant.
Chef Lerouy’s classical French foundation incorporated modernist leanings at Amador Restaurant and Cellar at the Park Rotana Abu Dhabi, as well as at Alma by Juan Amador. It was at Alma where his culinary excellence and direction as the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine was awarded the one star accolade in the 2016 Singapore Michelin Guide.

It is at the bars where they share anecdotes about their day’s work and their family (or how some miss theirs who live in other prefectures). They enjoy small plates of wagyu dishes, served up along with sake and beer. Sometimes, the farmers take turns to prepare their hometown wagyu specialities.
Laughing, bonding, over their stories. A place of camaraderie and friendship. This is a celebration of life. The Container is inspired by this experience.

Presenting to their customers a unique experience with two specially curated concepts – Aburiya Japanese Wagyu Yakiniku and The Container Wagyu Tapas & Bar are both located on Boat Quay, right next to the iconic Singapore River.
As believers of the “nose to tail” philosophy, the people behind Aburiya and The Container respectfully ensure that they use all the cuts of the Japanese Wagyu beef which they import to Singapore from their partner farmers, to minimise wastage and also to showcase the various unique cuts of the beef.
At Aburiya, they pride ourselves in delivering the perfect yakiniku experience.
They also import their own ‘bincho’, also known as ‘white charcoal’, from their own source. A Japanese tradition for yakiniku, grilling Japanese wagyu over ‘white charcoal’ imparts a special flavour to the slices of wagyu beef.
