Located on the second floor of Destination Hotel, Folklore serves what executive chef Damian D'Silva calls "Singapore heritage food", essentially the food he grew up with. Having learnt both Eurasian and Peranakan cooking styles from his grandparents, he dishes out spot on flavours that really pack a punch. Portions are generous, so be sure to gather a group of spice-loving friends for this meal. Start with the refreshing 4 Angled Bean Salad ($12) tossed with tiny cubes of mango, red and green chillies, ginger flower and kaffir lime leaves, before moving on to the Singgang ($20), a lesser seen Eurasian dish of smashed wolf herring meat cooked in a flavourful, non-spicy paste. The highlight at Folklore has to be the well-executed, very addictive Sambal Buah Keluak Fried Rice ($22) that Burppler Veronica Phua describes as the "real black magic". Don't miss out on the hunky chunks of Beef Cheek Rendang ($32) that are braised till unbelievably tender. End your meal on a sweet note with their house made Kueh Kosui ($6) — it's one of the best we've had.
Avg Price: $40 per person
