A treasure trove of exciting and new dining experiences
By Nicole-Marie Ng
Sentosa Island is a great retreat from city life if you’re looking to escape the bustling tourist crowd. Nestled deep within the luxurious residential area of Sentosa, Quayside Isle is a waterfront stretch packed with dining and shopping options with stunning marina views.
Have a leisurely meal at some of the newest joints at Quayside Isle or head to old favourites that have recently expanded their menu.

The ethos at Greenwood Fish Market is simple — serve customers the freshest seafood possible. Their original branch off Bukit Timah Road has been wildly popular for years and the new restaurant at Quayside Isle has been enjoying similar success.
Compared to the smaller original bistro, the new space boasts large wooden tables that can accommodate big families who want to come together for a seafood feast. This July, Greenwood will also be hosting their fourth World Oyster Festival. There will be over 20 different types of oysters available, including favourites from Coffin Bay and Normandy.

You’ve probably heard of Blue Lotus’ Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab but that’s not the only twist to a Singaporean classic that chef-owner Ricky Ng has up his sleeve. Ricky constantly challenges boundaries and offers new perspectives on Chinese food.
Aside from the restaurant’s signatures, have a taste of some of the new dishes on the menu too. The most interesting and controversial dish has to be the Wok Fried “Prata” Seafood Char Kway Teow ($20). Instead of using kway teow, Ricky uses roti prata as the main starch component of this dish. The result might be too heavy for some but I found myself reaching out for more carbs even though I was stuffed.

Joe & The Juice

With electronic beats pulsating through the air and cute boys minding the juice bar, it’s not hard to imagine wanting to hang out at Joe & The Juice forever.
Instead of the usual cold press, the boys will blitz and blend the sweetest fruits to make you a nutritious cup of juice. With so many different types on the menu, it might be hard to decide what to order. We recommend Prince of Green, a mixture of spinach, pineapple and apple that was not bitter in the slightest, and the Fibre Active, a creamy blend of avocado, lemon and apple that you won’t find anywhere else.
