After what has felt like an eternity, dining in groups of five is finally possible again! And what better way to catch up with your friends and family than over some good food and drinks? Here’re 16 food spots where you can make a restaurant reservation to celebrate the easing of restrictions or other special occasions with your loved ones.

1. Bonding Kitchen

There’s no dish that screams Peranakan food like the Ayam Buak Keluak ($24.20), which you can get a taste of at Bonding Kitchen.

Quality Peranakan restaurants are hard to come by these days. Fortunately, Bonding Kitchen offers a Peranakan foodie respite from the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road. There’s no going wrong with classic Peranakan favourites such as their Ayam Buah Keluak ($24.20) and Babi Pongteh ($24.20). For something more unique, try their tender Wagyu Beef Rendang ($35.20) or Hei Bi Hiam Shimeiji Mushroom ($13.20). With their cosy environment and prime location right outside Somerset MRT station, good Peranakan food isn’t really all that inaccessible!

2. Burger & Lobster

Treat yourself to a 1.5LB Whole Lobster ($57) when you dine at Burger & Lobster after your next payday!

Located in the grand and historic Raffles Hotel, Burger & Lobster is an easy choice if you’re looking to treat yourself. Immerse in the hotel’s old-school opulence while savouring on fresh Atlantic lobsters in signature dishes like the 1.5LB Whole Lobster ($57), which you can have steamed, grilled, or both. Or if you’re craving some hearty burgers, the B&L Beast Burger ($27.82) will surely satiate those cravings. They’ve also got outlet-exclusive dishes like the Lobster Mac and Cheese ($21.40), perfect for those of you who’re B&L fans but haven’t visited this charming, rustic outlet. Be sure to make a reservation before you head down to the restaurant so you don’t have to worry about seats!

3. Char Restaurant

Can’t choose between Signature Char Siew ($28.50) and Crisp Roast Pork Belly ($28.50)? Why not get both at Char Restaurant?

You probably wouldn’t have guessed it, but Char Restaurant is a Chinese restaurant opened by two British brothers in 2014. They’re located along the ever-bustling street of Jalan Besar, just a five-minute walk away from Bendemeer MRT station. Over here, expect classic Cantonese roast meats like Signature Char Siew ($29), Crispy Roast Pork Belly ($29) and Jasmine Roast Duck ($16), but that’s not all. Using a mix of Asian and Western techniques, you can also expect a unique twist to these dishes. I’d definitely count on it given their multiple Michelin accolades from the yesteryears.

The Lai Huat Sambal Fish ($43.70) is their signature dish here.

Curry Fish Head ($38) is a dish synonymous with Sum Kee, so be sure to order this scrumptious dish for your next meal here!

Sum Kee is a well-known zi char establishment with two outlets in Singapore. Their original Telok Blangah restaurant is still in operation, drawing loyal and old customers from all over the country. On the other hand, their Jurong outlet is newer and boasts a fully air-conditioned interior — much needed in this Singapore heat if you ask me. Their Curry Fish Head ($40) is a must-try signature dish here. Worth trying are also the salted egg Ultraman Chicken (from $17) and Braised London Duck (from $38), which you can pair with just a warm bowl of rice. So if you’re ever craving for zi char, make a reservation for either restaurant and be on your way!
