Iggy’s, Singapore

Located in the heart of Singapore’s shopping district, Iggy’s is a surprisingly small restaurant. The dining area consists of eight tables and two private rooms – all neatly decorated.

In 2012, Iggy’s is recognised as the No. 1 restaurant by the Miele Guide Asia, and at the time of writing it’s also in its fourth year of being listed on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. The restaurant relocated to the Singapore Hilton Hotel in 2010, after its founding in 2004 by Sommelier Ignatius Chan.

Iggy’s wine list has some interesting selections. Wine by the glass includes some sherry and port wines. But one can see the wine list is dedicated to French Burgundy – Burgundy red dominates the selection. Some of the prices are quite reasonable.

Their dishes incorporates Southeast Asian flavours, such as the dessert Kaya & Teh Tarik – commonly found in Malaysia and Singapore. Good effort in its preparation, but I couldn’t really feel the spark between the east-meets-west style. If there’s a red book for Singapore, Iggy’s would meet the two-star standard at most.
