Redpan

This plate of pasta has got our mouths watering…

A quirky mix of local meets Western fare is served up at Redpan, a casual dining spot by homegrown architecture firm DP Architects and the owner of popular bistro GRUB (featured here). Try the Lup Cheong Iberico Chorizo Paella ($28), an interesting combination of the homey Spanish paella dish and locally cured Chinese sausage. Another must-try for pasta lovers is the Prawn & Hae Bee Hiam Pasta ($16), an addictively spicy dish featuring tagliatelle tossed in a house-made spicy shrimp paste. Centrally located at the accessible Marina Square, this restaurant is a worthy visit if you want to surprise your palette.
