Sweet, spicy and robust flavours are what comes to our minds when we think of Thai cuisine. French flavours on the other hand, are more subdued and sophisticated. But why choose between the two when you can have both? Farangse infuses elements of French and Issan (part of Thailand) cuisine into a one-of-a-kind gastro-medley!
Are you in need of a pick me up? Start off your meal with juicy oysters topped with refreshing Ikura. The kicker? Their oysters are served with Thai chili sauce—talk about a burst of flavor! If you aren’t a seafood-ie, give the Thai salads a go before moving on to the mains. Its perfect balance of sweet and sour is sure to whet your appetite! For the mains, tuck into the tender Beef Cheek, braised in red wine and nestled on a bed of mashed potatoes.

3. IZY Fook
We’re sure you’re a little confused by the wacky name. Meaning ‘一起福’ (together we prosper), this no-frills Japanese kitchen is inspired by old school Singaporean Cantonese restaurants. Step into IZY FOOK, and bask in the electric energy reminiscent of 70s Chinatown watering holes.
The swanky restaurant bar is split into two sections: The ‘Living Room’ and ‘Dining Hall’. Step into the ‘Living Room’ and be greeted by illustrations from Hong Kong’s up and coming illustrator Jonathan Jay Lee. Truly embodying its namesake, the ‘Living Room’ is where you can find ultra-hip diners bopping to lively hip hop tracks while noshing on roasted and charred Cantonese meats (siew yok anyone?). If you’re looking for a pre-drink snack, get the Buta No Shogayaki. It’s pan-seared ginger stick rolled with pork belly, deglazed with soy sauce and sansho slices. Super juicy and charred to perfection, there’s really no better way to kickstart your night! Need something heartier? You can’t go wrong with their Wagyu Truffle Don!
Looking to gather with friends over a cocktail or two? Head over to the ‘Dining Hall’. Located at the back of the restaurant, this cosy enclave is able to accommodate 50 people comfortably, and is perfect for a private hurrah with your favourite people!

Just like you, we’re suckers for a good view. So where better to enjoy the spectacular Singaporean skyline than at rooftop restaurant NOKA! Perched atop the newly revamped Funan Digital Life Mall, this Japanese restaurant is located right smack in the middle of Singapore’s Civic District. Opening on 28thJune, NOKA is the brainchild behind by Spa Esprit, and sister restaurant to Open Farm Community, which is why the same level of dedication to nature and the environment is upheld.
The well-loved farm-to-table concept at OFC is extended to NOKA. We recommend choosing a seat near the windows, where you can sit back and relish in the stunning view of the 5000 sq-ft urban garden that runs alongside the restaurant walls. What’s more: veggies from the edible garden are used in NOKA’s dishes. Their ECG Mushroom and Black Cod Saiko-Yaki both utilize the garden’s wide array of herbs and vegetables, making sure you get the ultimate farm-to-table experience!
Find it at 109 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 179097
