THE CONTAINER: JAPANESE WAGYU TAPAS & BAR

From the same group that runs Aburiya, this new wagyu tapas restaurant at Boat Quay serves affordable Japanese beef with a modern twist.

Highlights include The Smokin' Wagyu Carpaccio ($19++, above), thin slices of wagyu carpaccio smoked with sakura wood chips; and Wagyu Galareta ($14++), wagyu broth jelly paired with ponzu sauce.

The non-wagyu tapas selections include Pan-seared Oysters with Strawberry Foam ($5++ a piece) and slow-cooked Braised Pork Ribs ($12++ or $19++).

On the drinks menu, Wagyu Whisky ($14++) is prepared weekly by fat-washing whisky with wagyu fat from the kitchen. This method lends a smoky hint and fuller texture to the drink.

Where: 78 & 79 Boat Quay

Open: 6 to 11pm (Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays) and 6pm to midnight (Thursdays to Saturdays and eve of public holidays), closed on Tuesdays
