Restaurants and Bars in Singapore: New Menus and Openings in January 2021
From the team behind Binomio Spanish Restaurante, Set of Six is a new cocktail and dining lounge. Set of Six sets the diner on a journey that provides six discoveries for diners to experience crafted by highly skilled mixologists and a fine dining executive chef.
It’s a place to unwind and enjoy fine champagne, and six cocktails paired with six delectable dishes. Inspired by the novel “Set of Six” written by Joseph Conrad, the cocktail lounge brings to life Conrad’s experiences when he went to the sea at 17, and later when he sailed to Singapore as part of the crew of Captain James Craig from which Craig Road name takes after.
The journey starts with The Brute - Oysters with Sherry Foam and Spicy Tomato paired with Sailor’s Fate, a dark rum-based cocktail, and frankly what we think is the best pairing of the sets. Next comes the Gaspar Ruiz - Seabass ceviche with Sweet Potato and Popcorn in Tiger’s Milk paired with Blessed Earth, a drink spiked with tequila and grapefruit. Another highlight of the food menu is the Lobster and Fennel Ravioli with Bottarga, Uni and Caviar. The rest of the cocktails are on the sweeter side for our taste.
Go for the Insta-worthy decor and great music, stay for the Tripple Cooked Chips with Branston Sauce and a brilliant Mushroom Ketchup!

BOTANY's co-founder Cassandra Riene Tan has recently opened The RITUAL Cafe & Bar at Bukit Timah for those looking for a good brunch in Singapore and for those looking for a little self-love.
Stemmed from the belief in holistic wellness, the cafe invites spiritual seekers and like-minded individuals to learn from mental wellness advocates, coaches, industry experts and strong social advocates, also known as The RITUAL tribe leaders. They will be leading wellness programmes and experiences to better serve the community. Expect non-conformists and seemingly controversial topics such as mental wellness, sexuality, metaphysics and spirituality, alternative healing such as Ayurveda, herbal remedies, TCM and Reiki covered over knowledge-sharing and experiential sessions, workshops to casual mingling sessions.
The menu is designed to be simple, wholesome, and most importantly, inclusive with plant-based and gluten-free options. Noteworthy dishes include Madame’s Truffled Egg Croissant, Truffle Kombu Fries, Tofu Tempeh Fries, and The Impossible Mala Somen - homemade Szechuan sauce, garlic crumb, bak choy, somen, Impossible mince, and sous vide egg. Another highlight is the Beetroot Gravlax bagel with pickled beetroot and cream cheese
Of course, you’ll get coffee - Italian inspired house blends of high-quality coffee beans roasted locally that are bold and fruity in flavour sans the bitterness you get from an Italian roast due to the perfect mix of 85% arabica and 15% robusta roasted at just the right temperature.
