Iggy's

VERIFIED LUXURY
The brainchild of founder and noted sommelier Ignatius Chan, Iggy’s is a modern European restaurant that relocated to a stylish space on the third floor of the Hilton Singapore Hotel in 2010 after first debuting in 2004 at The Regent Singapore. A favorite of local and traveling gourmands alike since the day it opened, Iggy’s is perennially considered one of the best restaurants in Singapore — believe the hype.

Though the core of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant's cuisine is rooted in Europe, there’s no mistaking the distinct Japanese influence found in the seasonal ingredients populating the restaurant’s carefully created set menus, a product of ongoing collaborations between Chan and head chef Aitor Jeronimo Orive. Dishes such as capellini with kelp, cherry shrimp and shellfish oil strike a perfect balance between Eastern and Western cooking, while ambitious creations like sea bream with cauliflower, white chocolate and white onion spotlight the kitchen’s eagerness to experiment with a diverse palate of ingredients, textures and flavors.

It all makes for an exciting, sometimes surprising meal at this intimate 28-seat restaurant, which serves prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner and an à la carte menu during the evening at the bar. Befitting a vino enthusiast of Chan’s stature — he’s the former cellar master of Raffles Singapore and, in 1989, he became the first Asian invited to join the Grand Jury European panel — Iggy’s also features an exceptional wine list.

Things to Know
•More than a decade in, these are still some of the hottest tables in town. Translation: advance reservations are essential. For your spot in the intimate dining room, we recommend booking at least one week in advance of your desired date.

•Though you can certainly dress to the nines — and many diners do — the Singapore restaurant has a smart-casual dress code.

•An à la carte menu is served in the bar, but you’ll have a handful of set menus to choose from in the main dining room. During lunch, a two- to five-course menu is served, and dinner features a six- and nine-course menu. Vegetarian options are also available.
The Food
•A seasonal specialty available on the bar’s à la carte menu, the sea bream features an unlikely marriage of fresh fish with three ingredients of the same color: cauliflower, white onion and white chocolate. Trust us, it works.

•Featuring six of the latest culinary creations from chef Orive and his talented kitchen staff, the dinner menu at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant is a wonderful way to savor a variety of flavors, textures and smells — oftentimes in a single dish.

•Of course, we wouldn’t blame you for going all in with the Singapore restaurant’s pièce de résistance, the Gastronomic menu, a nine-course food journey that starts with seasonal snacks and ends with a box of chocolate shavings filled with treats.
