    Healy Mac's Irish Bar & Restaurant

    Sited at the ground floor of Straits Quay, this renowned restaurant is tailor-made to bring in voracious appetite and return with all smiles. It’s all about chugging down beers and devouring scrumptious choices of meats while overlooking the picturesque marina view. Their pork knuckle is fairly the best-kept secret – huge slab of roasted meat is paired with roasted potatoes, sauerkraut, a bed of greens and alluring sauce choices – apple, red wine, black pepper and English mustard. The meat is utterly tender, thanks to the slow roasting process and the skin is satisfyingly crunchy.

    Annathai-Kitchen

    Tucked along the crowd-rousing Pulau Tikus, Annathai-Kitchen is drawing in the crowd for their economy rice and familiar Thai fares like green curry and seafood tomyam. However, it would be a crime to leave without gobbling their Thai Pork Knuckle Rice. Nothing to shout about the rice, but the pork meat is amazingly addictive. Sitting beneath the flaky skin is the meat that slides from the bone with the finest touch. For a spicy kick, dip in the homemade chili sauce. Hold on, you can also opt for their Vinegar Pork Knuckle which is extremely tender with fatty layers and the gravy certainly wins with a mix of sourness.
