Level 33

Majulah Singapura

Our little red dot turns 57 this year. This once-a-year celebration deserves some special attention, so here’s a round-up of eight restaurants where you’re promised a good view of the fireworks along with your celebratory feast.

Bread Street Kitchen
Gordon Ramsay’s famed beef wellington

Bread Street Kitchen

National Day may be all about celebrating Singapore, but we are a melting pot of different cultures, so head to Bread Street Kitchen & Bar for a journey around the world. Besides the restaurant’s famed British signatures such as the Beef Wellington and Fish & Chips, enjoy more regional flavours in the Tamarind Spiced Chicken Wings and Spicy Tuna Tartare with wonton crisps. The cocktails here really hold their own, too. Mango Spice 2.0, made with Diplomatico rum, ginger, chilli tincture and coriander brisket reduction, pays tribute to India’s huge variety of spices while the Thai Colada (Malibu liquor, pandan and kaffir lime leaf) will take you to Caribbean and Thailand.
