Oumi is novel and fresh: an offering of Australian-inspired Japanese cuisine. As the kappo experience is as much visual as relational, Oumi offers a vantage view of Marina Bay and the chefs at work. Dishes are presented in individual servings, some exclusively available only when dining at the counter, while with larger groups of family, friends or corporates seated at the table, a similar selection is offered in communal sharing plates.

  • Leckerbaer Danish Pastries In Singapore

    LACKERBAER: New Outlet At Keong Siak Road

    Danish Desserts And Snacks In Singapore

    Leckerbaer was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, by Jakob and Gabi Bär Mogensen - who both have extensive experience from the European Michelin-restaurant scene. Inspired by how New Nordic cuisine has explored the history and terroir of the region, they set out to make something local and relevant.  That is why they took the butter cookie as their point of departure. Since then, they have added more baked goods to the selection, all of which are made with the same sense of flavor, craftsmanship, and quality. That is their way of honoring the Danish tradition of great pastry and elegant design. Savor their Smoked Salmon and Onsen Egg sourdough sandwich, or the Crab & Avocado Salsa option is a fave amongst its diners here.
