Singaporean food, but not as you know it


On the Pass

Han Liguang

What's it all about? Labyrinth takes inspiration from many Singaporean classic dishes, but turns them into the most modernised and elegant versions of themselves. Chef Liguang Han’s food is constantly evolving and every meal here feels different, yet the core of his ideas stem from dishes that you find along the streets of Singapore. Having won the Sustainable Restaurant Award in 2021, the venue added the Highest Climber Award to its trophy cabinet in 2023. 

What’s the vibe? The restaurant has just gone through a mini renovation with the previously dark carpet and walls brightened up with warmer accents from the wooden flooring and tables, making the dining experience more inviting.

Typical dishes: The set menu has multiple small, fun bites, all of which are constantly being updated and rotated. Most of these snacks are based on items easy to recognise for locals and Singaporean food lovers. Take for instance the Hae Mee Tng, or prawn noodles. The only constant on the menu is Chef Han’s chilli crab ice cream, currently in its 11th iteration.

Flying the local flag: Besides using local hawker food as inspiration, Chef Han also displays art from several local artists, including a piece that lights up to display the map of the MRT train lines.

Come for a fun time: Its current menu is more interactive than ever. Without wanting to give too much away, props, packaging and presentation help set Labyrinth apart from other restaurants in Singapore.
