Things That Make You Go Boom

Food by Local Celebrities

Singapore is filled with great eateries from local hawker stalls to Michelin star restaurants. Who would guess that hiding amidst these eateries are some awesome places operated by famous actors and actresses in Singapore? Sink your teeth into this!

 

Bar Naked & FRY Bistro by Irene Ang

Do you recognise this face? BINGO! That’s Irene Ang of Phua Chu Kang fame, having starred alongside Gurmit Singh’s Phua Chu Kang as his wife, Rosie. Beyond acting, Ang is also the Founder and CEO of FLY Entertainment, Bar Naked, and FRY Bistro.

BAR NAKED

Why the strange name, you ask? Like its namesake, the walls of the bar are stripped naked, with minimal decorations, giving the bar a minimalist look. Bar Naked not only serves amazing cocktails but also a variety of European dishes. Some of their cocktail top picks are Something Like Lassie, which is fruity with a hint of ginger beer, and Dirty and Naked, which pairs up Reyka vodka and Balvenie Double Wood whiskey for a real kick. This place is definitely a good pick for a Friday night out!

Among the restaurants and bars of Club Street hides the tiny rooftop bar of FRY Rooftop Bistro & Bar. The steep climb to the rooftop is worth it, as the bar overlooks the spectacular view of Club Street and Ann Siang Hill. Besides serving mocktails and cocktails, FRY also offers a variety of snacks and dishes, such as Auntie Ang’s Wings, Pig Trotter Bee Hoon with shiitake mushrooms and roasted chestnuts, and Kimchi Pork Belly Mac & Cheese.

PARK at Holland Village & Five Bar by Adam Chen

Acclaimed Singaporean actor, Adam Chen, made waves in the industry with Singaporean dramas such as Love Blossoms, Daddy at Home, The Score, and C.L.I.F. Aside from acting, Chen has also been active in the F&B industry for close to 10 years! After retiring from the media industry in 2013, he moved on to start a slew of restaurants, such as PARK at Holland Village, Five Bar, Ikki Izakaya, and Golden Bistro.

FIVE BAR


As its name suggests, five is the magic number at FIVE Bar, with All-Day-Everyday Specials for $5 only! That pretty much explains why there’s always a queue in the evening.
