Serving up a National Obsession: One on the Bund

What better way to show off Singapore to visitors than with food? Instead of just sticking to Newton Circus, try these eateries too, where great cuisine and sights are served.
One on the Bund’s signature Crispy Deboned Lamb Ribs
The architectural trademarks of the historic Clifford Pier like the concrete arches have been preserved
Traditional thermos flasks add a touch of chinois chic
A prime location for great sunset scenes of Marina Bay and the city’s financial district

Within historic Clifford Pier’s refurbished façade is the resplendent Shanghai-themed One on the Bund. Here, past meets present, where lavish contemporary fittings harmonise with Chinese antiques like old suitcases, birdcages, medicine cabinets and even an entire bed chamber. Two stone guards greet diners at the start of an expansive lantern-lit walkway, leading to an al fresco dining area where a magnificent view of Marina Bay awaits, especially at dusk. Melodic strains of old Chinese tunes and the pleasant scent of burning fruit-wood wafting in the air are unmistakable, the latter a signature preparation step for One on the Bund’s Traditional Wood-fired Peking Duck ($88). Other exquisite dishes include the aromatic Crispy Soft Shell Crabs in a Sea of Szechuan Red Peppers ($48) and meltin- the-mouth One on the Bund Crispy Deboned Lamb Ribs ($56). Each is a visual masterpiece, and tastes as heavenly as it looks. Owner, executive chef and creative brain Calvin Yeung, from Hong Kong, is also an avid fashion designer, and a section is dedicated to showcasing his chic cheongsams and tangzhuangs (Chinese jackets). So after visiting old Shanghai through a multi-sensorial culinary experience, Chef Yeung can also help you look like you’ve just been there.
