The vibrancy and diverse local food scene of a place is often seen as a reflection of the diversity of that place, and Singapore is the best example of that.
Singapore’s food scene, which is a concoction of the best cuisines from around the world, is often seen as a celebration of the multiculturalism that Singapore has.
From Michelin-starred delicacies, trendy beach clubs to local comfort food by homegrown chefs. In summary, Singapore has it all.
And because weekends are for relaxing and, why not, indulging yourself a little, we want to show you our favorite beach clubs, keep reading!
Friendly warning! We’re working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
~ Coastes: brunch by the sea
Situated along a golden stretch of Sentosa’s Siloso Beach, Coastes Singapore offers a rustic and laid-back beach vibe where the sunbeds and deck chairs flow right to the water’s edge.
At Coastes, you will be able to enjoy a leisurely brunch while taking in some sea breeze. Not bad, huh?
From open dining areas and beach beds, guests can pick from different alfresco spots to get their tan on!
For guests who prefer staying close to the pristine waters while immersing in the warmth of the sand, the Beachfront Area with its sunbeds provides front-row seats to the beach (rental cost is S$22 for a whole day and it comes with 2 glasses of complimentary iced tea. Each sunbed can fit up to 2 people).
Coastes has got you covered, offering a wide array of food options from brunch to pizzas, burgers, Western and healthy dishes, fresh seafood, cocktails, mocktails and premium beers.
An all-day food menu that is divided in:
- Breakfast menu, from 9am to 3pm
- All-day dining, 11am onwards
- Food Specials like the Seafood Stew or the Curry Laksa, 11am onwards
Check all their menus HERE >> http://coastes.com/
They offer a wide range of drinks: juices, cocktails, premium draught beers, wine and mocktails (no alcohol). We could not resist to try the most famous cocktail in Singapore, the Singapore Sling! It was refreshingly delicious.
We tried a bit of everything, but our favorites were the Super Burger (S$26) and the Rösti with smoked salmon and poached eggs (S$18).
And because there is always room for dessert, we ordered the Salted Caramel Brownie (S$14), served with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice-cream.
We loved its generous serving and the deliciously fudginess without being overly sweet.
Bonus point: the wifi is free and quick, so if you want to #workfromCoastes, can lah!
~ FOC Group, bringing Barcelona beach vibes to Singapore
It all started off as a collaboration between Michelin Star Chef Nandu Jubany and a group of local Spain-aficionados, who wanted to recreate fine and authentic Barcelona flavours in Singapore.
“FOC” (pronounced as /fok/) means ‘FIRE’ in Catalan, the language spoken in Barcelona’s region.
Today FOC already owns 3 branches: FOC Hong Kong / FOC Sentosa (their Beach Club) and FOC Pim Pam (currently closed due to the covid-19 situation).
The menu offers a wide range of contemporary Mediterranean dishes (especially Catalonian), conceptualised by Michelin Star Chef Nandu Jubany.
With an open kitchen, mediterranean vibes and “Gigantes y cabezudos” (or giants and big heads, which is a popular festival celebrated in Spain) hanging from the ceiling, you will find yourself at home, your Mediterranean home.
Bonus point: the staff is super friendly!
One of the reasons we love FOC so much is firstly, because it reminds us to our hometown and secondly, its excellent money-for-value relation.
Must-Eat Dishes are, everything to be shared:
- (Tapa/Starter) Mushroom and Iberico ham croquettes (they will melt in your mouth! Available at all outlets)
- (Tapa/Starter) “Patatas Bravas” FOC Style (available at all outlets)
- (Tapa/Starter) Toasted Bread with Tomatoes (available at all outlets)
- (Tapa/Starter) Open Tortilla with “Piquillo” Peppers & Truffle or Ibérico Ham (available at FOC Restaurant)
- (Tapa/Starter) Octopus Galician style – Slow-Cooked & Charcoal-Grilled (available at all outlets)
- (Paella) Black Mediterranean Squid Ink Paella with Prawns & Squid (available at all outlets, large format at FOC Sentosa!)
If you still have room for dessert, do not miss their best seller: Yin Yang (cheesecake) Cracker, inspired by the Catalan biscuit and similar to Chinese love letter.
If you are up to a more refreshing dessert, try their original crustless and lemon pie. If, on the other hand, you’re craving a decadent chocolate dessert, go for their “FOC Ferrero”.
