Answering the perennial question of “where can we find good food?”, Chope Diners’ Choice 2020 presents the Top 5 Restaurants of the Year, as voted by our city’s foodies. Ready to ‘eat till you drop’? Drumroll please ~
1: THE LINE
Stealing the show with its extensive menu of global cuisines is Shangri-La Hotel’s flagship restaurant, The Line. From seafood on ice, to sushi, to naan baked in a tandoor oven, its 88 delectable made-to-order dishes are simply to die for. We can see why this buffet restaurant is a winner for diners, with it clinching awards for two consecutive years in a row, bagging both ‘Restaurant Of The Year’ in 2020 and ‘Best Bountiful Buffet’ in 2019.
2: FAT COW
As the first runner-up for the Restaurant of the Year category, Fat Cow never fails to keep diners coming back for more of their extensive handpicked selection of the finest Wagyu from reputable farms in Japan. There’s no wonder here why they have been clinching awards at Chope’s Diners’ Choice year after year. Everything from their signature Japanese Wagyu beef, to the appetizing Whisky Fat Sour, complemented by the contemporary interior design Japanese “Wabi-Sabi” concept, this unique fusion of a shabu, open-kitchen dining experience is not one to be missed.
It’s never too early to start planning ahead for CNY reunion dinners! Singapore has long been a seafood haven but in recent years we’ve seen many new seafood establishments come up all across the island. But it seems, for most of Singapore’s foodies, nothing beats the familiar and well-loved Chilli Crab from one of Singapore’s oldest and most recognised home-grown brands, JUMBO Seafood. Seeing how locals and tourists alike flock to this popular seafood spot during the festive season, we’d suggest you book a table early!
This hidden gem within the sleepy neighbourhood of Hillview presents an authentic Italian experience with its signature pastas, as well as their fragrant freshly-baked bread speckled with delicious tomatoes or mushrooms. During peak hours, diners transform this warm, cosy space into a buzzing diner, filled with chatter and a lively atmosphere.
At Candlenut, the beloved and traditional Peranakan cuisine is getting its time in the limelight thanks to chef-owner Malcolm Lee’s deft work and skill that garnered him a Michelin star two years in a row. Be prepared to fall head over heels for standouts such as the Blue Swimmer Crab Curry.
