Waku Ghin - Singapore

The name 'Waku Ghin' is derived from two Japanese words: ‘Waku’ means to 'arise' (like water pouring forth from a hot spring) and 'Ghin' means 'silver', which is Chef Tetsuya's creation. The main dining room only seats 25 guests per seating, Enjoy an exquisite 10-course degustation menu created from the best seasonal produce. This could be one of the most expensive meal I had in Singapore. Number 2  spot in Miele Asia Top 20; top restaurant in Singapore; and ranked 39th in the coveted The S.Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants List.
