The crowd favourites at Tanuki Raw are their Japanese-inspired rice bowls, which are really value for money during lunch hours (starting from $12++). The all-time favourite is the pan-seared Black Angus short rib in foie gras truffle yakiniku don.  

Address: 181 Orchard Road, 04-01 Orchard Central, Singapore 238896

 

The Pelican

Slurp down freshly shucked oysters while enjoying the Marina Bay waterfront view at The Pelican, located at One Fullerton. Dine alfresco to get the full view or avoid the heat in a cosy armchair indoors. One good thing about being indoors is that you get to watch the chef  preparing the seafood dishes in action.

Aside from fresh oysters, they serve a snapper pie at the Pelican that is freshly baked to order. Another favourite on the menu is their grilled seafood platter at $158, which consists of a whole barramundi, grilled squid, lobster and grilled vegetables.

Despite the rather hefty price tag, you can share the huge spread amongst 2 or 3 friends so it works out to a reasonable fancy dinner price. The 3-course set lunch starting from $38 per set is also great for an occasional splurge. 

Address: 1 Fullerton Rd, #01-01 One Fullerton, Singapore 049213

 

Wine Mansion 

Wine Mansion is tucked away along the heritage street, Keong Saik road, and offers US-flown oysters for just $2 each on some days of the week. There are many promotions through the week like 1-for-1 steak night on Mondays, ladies’ night on Wednesdays with free flow pouring of house red, house wine and Prosseco (Italian wine) at $25++, and a tapas menu on Thursdays.

The cosy ambience in the beautifully refurnished blue and purple shophouse is great for unwinding after work, especially with their $5 TGIF drink nights on Fridays. Wine Mansion also has an extensive food menu including seafood, meats like crispy pork knuckle, pasta and even kebabs.

True to their name, you can expect a wide selection of wines, handpicked and sourced worldwide here.
