Singapore has been known for two things of late - being the most expensive city and one that loves their food which is why we love Survival Chic, a dining and lifestyle membership that allows you to dine at 56 restaurants without breaking the bank!
Launched in 2010 by Christophe Ferreira and Virginia Brumby, Survival Chic is Singapore’s first and leading dining and lifestyle membership program curated for busy executives, socialites and entrepreneurs who enjoy the finer things in life.
1. Parisian Bistro Ô Batignolles
Conveniently located in Club Street, this is the perfect place to indulge in the simple pleasures in life. Relax, grab a glass of reasonably-priced French wine (or 3), and catch up with old friends and new in a charming, informal setting reminiscent of a bistro somewhere in France. It is the simple things in life that are worth savoring, so bring a date or a group of friends, order a bottle, and pair it with the specialties of the French chef: Quiche Lorraine, Croque Monsieur, and do not forget the ‘French burger’ with melted comté cheese and truffle fries.
2. Michelin-Starred Alma
Recently awarded a Michelin Star, and with a very talented new Executive Chef, Alma combines European & Asian influences, stunning high-quality ingredients, and pure panache. Centrally located on Orchard, this is your spot for a truly chic business lunch, or a date with that lucky someone. Their lovely al fresco area is also the perfect spot to grab a glass of bubbles and classy canapes! So grab fellow foodies, and get ready to swoon over this unique, multi-sensory experience.
3. Social Dining Don Ho
Reviving the 'Social Evening', the team creates an environment where diners can ‘disconnect to reconnect’ with friends over handcrafted cocktails and authentic seasonal dishes. Hidden behind funky Keong Saik Road, the venue's menu features simple, yet refined plates, perfect for sharing - from fresh lobster to home-made focaccia! As if you still need more reasons: the cocktails are fantastic, the crowd is beautiful, and there is no GST or service charge; all prices are nett!
4. Charming Italian Latteria Mozzarella Bar
Located in the idyllic foodie enclave of Duxton Hill, the charming decor of Latteria sets the scene for cosy evening get-togethers with friends or family, or lovely afternoon lunches. Enjoy mozzarella in all varieties, shapes and sizes, flown in direct from Italy’s artisanal cheese producers. Have it 'al naturale' or with authentic Italian pasta and beyond. This chic, yet casual Italian gem is perfect for a hot date or a fun gathering with friends - don't miss the gorgeous terrace, perfect for a date!
5. Gourmet Paradise Chef's Table
Ask any Survival Chic member what are the must-try restaurants, and Chef's Table is sure to be mentioned! After working in 4 different Michelin-Star restaurants, Chef Stephan Zoisl has developed his own unique technique of modern cooking, with an emphasis on fresh, intriguing combinations, and embracing customers with an open kitchen concept, for a true epicurean experience that you will not forget, plus a wide choice of awesome wines - perfect for a special night with date or a group of foodie friends!
