For those who aren’t familiar with Singapore Restaurant Week, it’s is a one-week-only dining event where fine dine establishments create special sampling set menus at unbeatable prices! During that week, all participating restaurants will offer exclusive three-course menus for lunch & dinner priced at $25*+++ & $35*+++ respectively!! Now you know why it’s so hard to secure a seat!
I’ve to say this is the probably the best escargots we’ve ever had. It’s something different from the usual with the addition of vegetables. It may not sound like a good combination, but it was nothing like what we’d envisaged. The sourish tang arising from the concasse tomatoes, the flavourful mushrooms, the plumpy snails....... it was a perfect marriage! Those around us also emptied their appetizers. Too hungry or too good? Sadly, this appetizer isn’t in their ala carte menu. Guess you just have to special order when you’re at Taratata!
For the first time, the popular week-long gastronomic affair will now include healthy gourmet options in response to increasing requests since its debut in 2010. Health-conscious food lovers can now look forward to new healthy gourmet creations at top notable restaurants such as Salt Grill & Skybar, J’s, Oso Ristorante, 7Adam restaurant, KUMO restaurant, Zaffron, Onaka restaurant & more. In addition, new dining experiences await at popular & exciting talk-of-the-town establishments such as Oca Grassa, Blue Bali on Cluny, East8, Fern & Kiwi Bar & Eatery, Hashi & Privé Grill which would be joining #SingaporeRestaurantWeek October 2013 for the first time.
Participating again with newly crafted set menus are hot favourites like Au Jardin, Bistro Du Vin, Absinthe, Buyan Russian Haute Cuisine & Caviar Bar, Garibaldi, Gattopardo, OSO, Salt Grill & Sky Bar, La Cicala, Jade, Clifford, The Song of India, Boathouse, Etna Italian Restaurant, Gunthers, Stellar @1-Altitude, SQUE Restaurant, Picotin Express, Wan Hao Chinese Restaurant, Marriott Café, Pepe Nero, Cassia, Basilico, The Knolls, Taratata Bistrot, Punjab Grill By Jigg Kalra & so on.

The fact that the number of visitors on the website exceeded 2.5 million people is proof that it is a very popular & successful concept. As a consequence of its success in The Netherlands, Restaurant Week Belgium & Restaurant Week Vienna are also highly-lauded. In 2010, Restaurant Week made its debut appearance in Rome, Singapore & Shanghai. Singapore has the honour of being the “First city in Asia” to showcase Restaurant Week.
