Singapore Rivers Present Winners for SR Signatures

Foodies have much to rejoice about as Singapore River One (SRO) revealed its winners for SR Signatures 2017 - a key highlight of the Singapore River Festival, celebrating the best cuisine along the three quays – Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay. 

Back for its third edition, SR Signatures 2017 rounded up a coveted list of signature dishes that captures the identity of the restaurants and the individual chefs. The list features a good mix of first-time and recurring winners; both who have stepped up to the challenge to serve stellar cuisine. Follow me as I tell you what I've tasted on my food trail!

Da Miao Hot Pot
3C River Valley Road, #01-11 The Cannery, 179022
Authentic Sichuan style Hotpot originating from Chengdu, the combination of Da Miao Hotpot’s two signature soup bases aims to satisfy both spice lovers and those seeking something milder. Get the best of both worlds with the Yuan Yang soup pot – Spicy mala and Fresh mushroom with Pork Bonesoup.

With quality offerings like Australian beef and fresh shrimp paste on the menu, Da Miao Hotpot is a place to go for quality fresh food and hot pot soup! The fresh mushroom & pork bone yuan yang soup pot was thick and had a milky and rich flavour with dried scallop and dried fish. The ingredients were very fresh, and of superb quality. The dish was arranged on unique crockery with distinctive decoration.

They also have live face-changing performances and talent shows every evening at 7.30pm which you'll get to catch when you're dining in with them! Live entertainment while enjoying the hotpot goodness, who will say no to that?

Dashi Master Marusaya
86 Robertson Quay, Singapore 238245
Dashi Master Marusaya takes great pride in offering a large selection of authentic healthy, Dashi-based dishes. Natural Dashi (as opposed to chemically-composed additives) is a key seasoning developed from Katsuobushi (dried bonito), a key ingredient in Japanese cooking and our Dashi Shabu is one of the best ways to appreciate the true taste of dashi.

This wagyu beef literally melted in my mouth; it was SO DELICIOUS! A dip in this specially-curated sauce brings the level up another notch. No it's not too salty nor is it soya sauce.

Dashi Master Murasaya’s winning entry was the authentic Marusaya Premium Dashi Shabu Shabu using all natural dashi. They take pride in offering healthy Japanese dishes to soothe the diners’ taste buds and body. They do not use any chemical composed seasoning, and use only natural ingredients. Most of the selected ingredients were fresh and blended well in with dashi, bringing loads of goodness in this pot of dashi stock.

57 Boat Quay Singapore 049846 
Kinara offers creative North Indian cuisine with impeccable service. Simple words with a world of meaning that aptly sum up the Kinara philosophy. In Singapore, it is common knowledge that once you step inside Kinara, you are royalty. Unobtrusive service will give you that warm at-home feeling and expert chefs will delight your taste buds with their creations.

The signature dish was the Tandoori Chicken shown here. It was nicely marinated in yoghurt and freshly pounded Northern Indian spices and grilled to perfection, and was complemented with the crispy and aromatic garlic Naan.

Pasta Fresca
30 Boat Quay Singapore 049819
Lasagne Gratinate All’ Emiliana from Pasta Fresca is mama’s lovely dish, made of pasta sheets layered with Bolognese sauce, béchamel, mozzarella parmesan cheese. All of the dishes are worth sampling, but what really hit the spot was the lasagne. Classic baked layers of pasta, béchamel, and mozzarella and parmesan cheese, with homemade Bolognese sauce. It tastes as if it has a nonna's touch!

Dallas Restaurant and Bar
31 Boat Quay, Singapore 049820
Indulge in a meat feast with Dallas Signature Meat Platter - Fiery Braised Pork Ribs, Australian Lamb Cutlets, Ribeye Steak and Rotisserie Chicken with an assortment of delectable mint jelly, mushroom and black pepper sauce. Served alongside fresh greens and roasted vine cherry tomatoes, a meal perfect for sharing.

A glorious pile of barbecued ribs, rack of lamb, sausages, sirloin steak, and more, arrives on a wooden carving board. It was an impressive sight that immediately got my mouth watering!

Hot Stones
3D River Valley Rd, #01-06, Clarke Quay, Singapore 179023
Hot Stones Steak and Seafood Restaurant features a unique dining concept that involves cooking fresh meats and seafood on a serpentine volcanic stone slabs. This method seals in the natural juices of the Australian M8 Wagyu Ribeye giving a palate- coating richness and extraordinary flavour with every bite.

It’s hard to go wrong when you have great cuts of wagyu, cooked in front of you on a hot stone slab. If you’re craving steak in the Clarke Quay area, this is the spot to drop by.

Not to mention the delicious and juicy giant prawns cooked right in front of your eyes. I devoured every inch of meat in this prawn hahaha.

Thank you WaterB for transporting us around the different restaurants located near the Singapore River! The Singapore River Festival celebrates the heritage, people and places that make up the river. Held along its three quays - Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay, the festival will bring a series of exciting art installations, activities, performances and food markets.

If you're looking for a place to head to for a birthday meal, celebration dinner or even a casual date, I urge you to head down to the restaurants along Singapore River. Thank you SRO for having me!
