Burnt Ends

Foodie favourite for upscale BBQ

€ € € €FavouriteLivelyModern

Singapore restaurants don't tend to do cosy very well. They tend to be places with the air conditioning dialled up to ‘freezing’ and lighting set to ‘daylight’. Burnt Ends’ Australian chef and owner has created a restaurant that feels more like a Scandinavian chalet than a typical Singaporean restaurant. There are exposed wood walls, dark furniture and warm lighting. The narrow restaurant space is divided into two with diners seated at a long bar on one side and an open kitchen that includes a massive wood fired oven and large open coal (very well ventilated) BBQ on the other. It’s not a typical BBQ restaurant though, there aren’t any burnt sausages on the menu; it’s a very modern and upmarket take on grilled cooking. Diners are encouraged to choose a selection of sharing plates from the ever changing menu. You can still get a steak, but we suggest you to try a few other things as well - we had a seriously good roast pigeon. Burnt Ends has proved hugely popular so we recommend calling ahead a few days for a booking or coming early (6pm) to get a table.

The menu should be treated as sharing plates, it changes daily but the obvious focus is on anything grilled or roasted. Start with small nibbles and then try grilled steak or roasted fish.
