Top 10 Unique Restaurants In Singapore

For what is quite a small nation when observed on a world map, the country of Singapore has innumerable dining options. If you are ready to bring your eating out experience to the next level or simply desire to impress your date on a special occasion, consider these unique restaurants in Singapore.

1. ANDSOFORT

The closest thing you’ll get to having a Disneyland experience when dining in Singapore is none other than ANDSOFORTH. Here, you will transport to a whole new magical world surrounded by quirky, elaborate, and themed sets.

What’s more, the menu caters to each of the various unique performances, so there will be something new to see every time you come.

One of their latest shows is inspired by Around The World In 80 Days, a classic work by Jules Verne. Enter the numerous exotic scenes of the story, from vintage steam trains to the Calcutta jungles.

The best part is the location is kept a secret and only revealed 24hrs before the workshop.

2. NOX Dine In The Dark

The appearance of a dish plays a big part in your consumer experience. But have you ever eaten in a restaurant where the food is practically invisible? If you’ve never had such an experience, consider dialing things down with a trip to NOX Dine In The Dark. Here, visitors eat their food in total darkness.

It’s quite an event and provides you a feel of what blind folk has to deal with. What’s even more interesting is the restaurant requires their waiters to be either visually impaired or completely blind and walk you through the meal that comes in three courses.

3. Smith Marine Floating Kelong

Singapore is a territory surrounded by water, and you can get a taste of the village life right on the Smith Marine. This floating restaurant offers many of the freshest forms of seafood in the country.

Of course, it can’t get any fresher when you work to catch the fish by yourself. Prior to your meal, consider fishing for sea bass or snapper at the pond. It’s called a sure-catch zone because it’s essentially like fishing in a bucket. After you successfully reel it in, you can then cook and serve it as part of your meal.
