Sommer

A fresh addition to Singapore’s fine-dining scene, Sommer is located at the heart of Singapore’s Marina Bay. Helmed by chef Lewis Barker, who was formerly at Bacchanalia and Vianney Massot, the restaurant showcases European culinary styles elevated by prized seasonal ingredients from Japan. Inspired by nature’s diversity and imbued with nostalgic touches from his childhood, the dishes are sublime yet memorable. There’s Mackerel on “Toast”, which recalls a familiar dish he ate as a child, but playfully constructed using homemade crumpet, smoked Japanese saba, and kaluga caviar, as well as the dry-aged Irish Duck—a nod to the iconic Asian dish.

Kulto

Show off your love for Spanish cuisine at Kulto, a newly opened restaurant whose name translates loosely to “devotion and paying homage.” Conceived by chef-owner Jose Alonso, the homely space is inspired by his Spanish roots and features wooden shutters reminiscent of Madrid and Barcelona apartments. Diners can watch the theatrics through an open kitchen, where tapas and quintessential dishes like paella are prepared. Aside from an authentic Spanish dining experience, local flavours also play a part in creations like the chili crab croquette, as well as the garlic prawns and homemade sambal. Meanwhile, the restaurant’s Josper Grill churns out delicacies like roasted pork belly with paprika.
