bummer to see no answer on this thread. Im taking my first ever trip to SG for work next month and would like to treat myself to a couple of high end meals. Did you discover anything on your trip that you could share?

Stay away.

That turned into a tourist trap after the owner sold it, has (had) 45-120 min wait and the food is awful. Which tourists obviously don't know because they don't know how it supposed to taste.

Do you specifically need chicken rice? If so, ask local Singaporean contacts which hawker center they would recommend. In general, Zion Road and Old Airport Road are good.

P.S. One generic recommendation - avoid going to places mentioned in guidebooks and/or are well-publicized over the Internet.

any good or bad experiences with the michelin starred omakase options? I was considering doing a Friday night dinner at either Kimura or Shoukouwa... I love great quality Japanese food and my wife doesn't so this business trip is a great way to have a good omakase experience on a favorable exchange rate where I can expense 25% of it or so
