1826, part of EightX Group, is located in a historic shophouse complex along the illustrious Boat Quay stretch, 1826 pays homage to its colonial origins by referencing the year its premises were built—the very same year the Straits Settlements were established. The menu is similarly inspired, offering an array of Asian and Western dishes that aims to cater to a wide range of tastes. Still paying heed to the adage that old is gold, traditional preparation techniques are used in dishes like the Salt-baked Chicken and Fish Maw Noodles, served with a bone broth that's been simmered for 24 hours. Western favourites are given equal attention, with a generous selection of risottos, pastas, grain bowls, and chophouse picks.
The restaurant’s lush, verdant interior stands out amongst its neighbours, welcoming passers-by and diners alike to take respite from the blistering heat of the day. Guests can choose to cool off at the sleek bar, where SevenDaze’s range of award-winning craft beer is served on tap, or take in the sights of the Singapore River at the breezy outdoor dining area with a cold pint in hand.
