Another month, another set of fantastic restaurants to explore. I asked Karin from EAT Singapore what her Top 3 Singapore restaurants for June would be. She started with Morsels and Chef Petrina Loh. Morsels has moved to a beautiful new home in Dempsey. Also recommended is Salted & Hung, the perfect venue for Father’s Day – book early to avoid disapppointment. Finally, Tóng Lè , a revolving restaurant at the top of OUE Tower which provides a unique experience for Chinese cuisine.
Morsels – now at Dempsey
“There’s this charming little restaurant hidden away at Dempsey, step inside and you have arrived at Morsels. It’s like a gorgeous little secret hidden away from it all. The interior is a well-coordinated mix and match, so personal and unique that the walls themselves have been painted by Chef and Owner Petrina Loh.
Dining at Morsels is an experience similar to dining at a good friend’s place with carefully sourced ingredients and everything prepared from scratch. Each dish brings a delicate balance between sweet, sour, bitter and salty.” – Karin
Morsels has a revolving noodle lunch special each week that is not to miss! Think Pho-inspired, Prawn Mee and Laksa, all with Chef Petrina’s unique take. Check their social media so you know what is on offer each week. They only serve one type of noodle per week. Unfortunately, you can not use your one-for-one main with EAT Singapore for the lunch special but I have the feeling that you’ll want to come back for dinner anyways!
It’s no wonder that Morsels walked away with two wins at the World Gourmet Summit’s Awards for Excellence 2017, held in March – Chef’s Choice (Western cuisine) and Huber’s Restaurant of the Year. I had the pleasure of interviewing Chef Petrina earlier this year and will be publishing her story soon. Be sure and like us on Facebook so you don’t miss it.

Salted & Hung
“An unexpected raw gem lies tucked away in the middle of Purvis Street; a restaurant that uses traditional curing methods with a modern touch that stays true to the original flavours. Salted & Hung is a casual and contemporary space combining concrete, wood and metal with playfulness in mural statements like ‘Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad’ – leaving you wondering why two legs are the bad ones…
As the name implies, Salted & Hung uses a range of cuts from all parts of the animal – whether pig, cow, or fish – and prepares them with elements of smoking, curing, pickling or a combination of all. All done in-house by Chef Drew and his team.” – Karin
Read our interview with Chef Drew Nocente where he talks about his less is more on the plate but more is more behind the scenes philosophy.

“At the top of OUE Tower, in the heart of historical landmark Collyer Quay, you will find the revolving restaurant Tóng Lè – offering a true 360 view of the Marina Bay waterfront and city skyline. The luxurious interior is a mix of dark wood furniture with bronze touches.
Dinner takes about 2 hours as the restaurant slowly spins around. As the view changes from Marina Bay Sands to CBD area to Fullerton Hotel you can enjoy the best of traditional, many once forgotten, Chinese dishes with a contemporary taste and unique style. Tóng Lè serves different set menus that change fortnightly.” – Karin
Tóng Lè was the first of my dining destinations with the EAT Singapore book this year. Indeed it was a special occasion as we celebrate four family birthdays in January! We all thoroughly enjoyed the modern Chinese set courses, exquisitely presented while we gazed at the fantastic views across Marina Bay.
