HAPPENINGS SINGAPORE MALAYSIA KUALA LUMPUR SPOTLIGHT Neighbourhood of Good Eats Lined with beautifully restored colonial shophouses, Duxton Hill makes for a very picturesque setting. Its unique architecture aside, this prominent neighbourhood has carved a reputation as an area that is both a feast for the eyes, as well as the stomach. The area once known more for its KTV operations decades ago is now a renowned foodie destination – thanks to a number of quaint restaurants, bars and cafés that have set up shop in the neighbourhood. Catering to the tastebuds of Singapore’s young, hip crowd and omnipresent expat community, this delicious enclave serves up a wide variety of international flavours and refreshing beverages. From fresh seafood to Spanish tapas as well as Mexican bites, being spoilt for choice is a requisite in Duxton Hill. Although there are too many to mention, some of the standouts in the area include the newly opened Brightside, for light bites and refreshments and French fine-dining establishment, Rhubarb Le Restaurant, which owns the distinction of a Michelin Star. Duxton Hill, Singapore SPOTLIGHT Time for Kopitiam This traditional old school kopitiam (coffee shop) is an institution for KL-ites. Situated near the centre of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre on Jalan Kamunting, Yut Kee has been dishing out delicious Hainanese dishes for decades. One of the ‘go-to’ places for a typical Malaysian breakfast, Yut Kee serves up an interesting variety of dishes ranging from the staple, half-boiled eggs with toast, to more elaborate offerings such as the Roasted Pork Roll, which is only available on weekends. Other mainstay favourites include the Roti Babi - a deep fried bun stuffed with minced pork, stir-fried Hailam Noodles, and the Hainanese style Pork and Chicken Chop. The décor of the outlet is stereotypically Chinese with Western influences such as mosaic tiles and it exudes a nostalgic appeal that keeps fans and foodies coming back for more. As such, it’s not surprising to find a regular crowd lining up outside the outlet to get a table in the morning – especially on weekends. 1, Jalan Kamunting, Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur, +603 2698 8108 NOT YOUR AVERAGE FISH MARKET Backed by Norwegian design and expertise, the FiSK Seafoodbar & Market has elevated the fish market concept in the Garden City. Part restaurant and part retail outlet, the upmarket establishment offers a Scandinavian-inspired menu by Executive Chef Markus Dybwad. The outlet smokes its own fish; menu highlights include Norwegian favourites such as Atlantic Halibut and Lobster Salad, as well as Asian-influenced offerings like the Sea Bream Curry and Black Pepper Salmon. The outlet is also well-stocked with a selection of quality wines. FiSK Seafoodbar & Market, 30 Stevens Road #01-01,, +65 6732 0711 FRESH CATCH Surrounded by the pristine Keppel Marina, Bayswater Kitchen provides the ideal setting for tucking into fresh and delicious seafood. A favourite haunt for seafood lovers, this casual seafront dining establishment has been reeling in customers with its approachable ambience and menu that’s populated by seasonal favourites. Bayswater Kitchen’s alfresco setting and waterfront views have made it a top pick for the brunch crowd where favourites such as Lobster & Prawn Rolls, Soft-Shell Crab Eggs Benedict and traditional Fish & Chips are the order of the day. It’s also widely popular with the after-office hour crowd and families, thanks to its laidback atmosphere and its extensive sharing platters. Whole fish, lobsters, Fisherman’s Feasts and fresh shucked oysters are the top picks here, naturally. Cutlery is, of course, totally optional. 2 Keppel Bay Vista, Marina at Keppel Bay,, +65 6776 0777 108
