Food is intricately woven into Singaporean lifestyle in that there is one restaurant for every 200 people in the island state. Nevertheless, not all Singaporean restaurants are designed for the common customer, as some are ridiculously expensive, a meal would cost as much as $500 or more.
Waku Ghin in Marina Bay Sands offers the most exclusive and most expensive dining experience in all of Singapore. The restaurant only accommodates 25 diners at a time, offering European and Japanese cuisine. Average cost of meal is a staggering $500 per person.
Restaurant Andre along Bukit Pasoh Road may have a mundane façade but that’s just the only ordinary thing about this French restaurant. For $400 per person, one can enjoy a lavish dinner and be one of the only 30 people eating in its petite dining hall served by internationally awarded chefs.
Shinji By Kanesaka in Raffles Hotel serves exquisite Japanese food for about $300 per diner. There might be cheaper alternatives out there but this restaurant uses only the finest and freshest of ingredients upon the close supervision of no one else but world-class Chef Kanesaka himself.
Iggy’s in Orchard Road requires diners to dress up to the nines, no less. Although lunches are relatively affordable, below $100, dinners would cost more than double that amount. And to add to its exclusivity, a diner can only order the same set course.
CUT Singapore by Wolfgang Puck offers the choicest Wagyu cuts for diners willing to pay $220 or more. This luxurious restaurant is nestled at a premier location in Marina Bay Sands. The ambience itself further increases the already hefty meal price tag.
Catalunya at The Fullerton Pavillion provides Spanish specialty dishes for the cost of $180 per person. If you have a penchant for suckling pigs, seafood paella and tapas in an exotic dome-shaped building then this restaurant is the perfect go-to place.
Osteria Mozza at the Marina Bay Sands is another plush restaurant that serves very expensive meals. If you’ve been to a branch in Sand Diego or LA, then you’d know for sure the restaurant in Singapore is twice more expensive. But heck, if you love Osteria, you’ll dine there anyway.
