AFRICA + THE AMERICAS

Kafe UTU

Diaspora Delights: Kafe UTU This unique cafe and lounge serves up breakfast, brunch, dinner and tapas favourites from around the African diaspora plus a tantalising cocktail menu. Choose from eclectic, hearty dishes such as Lamb Heart With Chimichurri Sauce, Caribbean Goat Curry and Liberian Peanut Chicken Stew. Top it off with a Nakupenda, a Kenyan doughnut topped with house soft-serve ice cream, or Malindi Halwa, a Swahili mochi made with fresh dragon fruit juice. (12 Jiak Chuan Rd., 089265, www.kafeutu.com)

American-Styled BBQ: Meat Smith

Attention, meat lovers! You can pig out with smokehouse staples like pork ribs and beef brisket infused with international flavours at this Telok Ayer barbecue joint. Feeling hungry? Order the Tomahawk Steak for Two, which comes with a mixed leaf salad. Oh, and be sure to check out other hot spots in the nabe on page 40. (167/169 Telok Ayer St., 068620, www.meatsmith.com.sg)

Caribbean Vibes: Lime House

Inspired by all things Caribbean, Lime House brings quality rum, authentic food and island hospitality to SG. Sit back and tuck into its delicious menu full of dishes and drinks. Don’t miss the Signature Jerk Chicken and Tribajam Curry Goat! (2 Jiak Chuan Rd., 089260, www.limehouse.asia)

A Meat Samba: Brazil Churrasco

Opened in 1994, the longevity of this carnivorous institution lies in its popular grilled meats and tasty bits like chicken liver and rump cap. Servers parade piping hot skewers around the dining floor and carefully slice slivers of meaty goodness straight onto your plate. Wash it all down with Brazil’s national cocktail: the caipirinha (14/16 Sixth Ave., 276476, www.brazilchurrasco.com)

Argentinian Asado: boCHINche

This Argentine outfit specialises in wood and charcoal-grilled grass-fed beef imported directly from Argentina, Australia, and the U.S. We recommend the Black Onyx Sirloin, served on the bone after 42 days of aging, or the simple but satisfying Bife de Lomo (beef fillet steak). (115 Amoy St., #01-02, 069935, www.bochinche.com.sg)

Mexi-mised Flavours: Super Loco

Mexican classics at Super Loco pack a punch – the seabass Ceviche de Mango is an explosion of fruit, coconut, serrano chilli and lime leaves with acidic juice enveloping all. Meanwhile, the Baja Fish taco is a flavourful favourite that marries a crispy, crumbed fish fillet with chipotle mayo and chilli mango salsa. (60 Robertson Quay, The Quayside, #01-13, 238252; 70 Collyer Quay, Customs House, #01-04, 049323, www.super-loco.com)

ASIA-PACIFIC

Quality Sashimi: Shinji by Kanesaka

The mark of a good Japanese resto is fresh sashimi, and it doesn’t get any fresher than at this one Michelin-starred joint (with two locations), where seafood is flown in from Japan twice a week. Pricey? Sure. Worth every cent? Absolutely. (29 Tanglin Rd., The St. Regis Singapore, Lobby Floor, 247911; 76 Bras Basah Rd., Carlton Hotel Singapore, Lobby Floor, 189558, www.shinjibykanesaka.com)

Mod-Aus Bites: Cheek Bistro

Husband-and-wife team Rishi Naleendra and Manuela Toniolo serve up modern Australian dishes that speak to the soul. Try the Burrata with heirloom tomato and fermented green chili. Finish with the Basil Cake served with strawberries, creme fraiche and white chocolate. (21 Boon Tat St., 069620, https://cheekbistro.com)
