Sin­ga­pore-style restau­rant in Yeka­ter­in­burg, Rus­sia.

On a food tour across South-east Asia a cou­ple of years back, the founder of Vezh­livie Ludi restau­rant group, Valentin Kyzi­akin, was im­pressed by Sin­ga­pore’s hawker food scene and wanted to bring some of the tastes he dis­cov­ered back to Rus­sia, where he would open a Sin­ga­porestyle food es­tab­lish­ment.

With the help of Ev­geniya Lazareva, the founder and

lead de­signer of Sin­ga­pore de­sign firm Hot De­sign Folks – she has lived and worked here for over six years – the in­te­ri­ors of Soyka Rest came to fruition, with var­i­ous fea­tures of Sin­ga­pore cul­ture adorn­ing the space, in­clud­ing Per­anakan ce­ram­ics and colo­nial-in­spired and trop­i­cal mo­tifs.

Housed in a quaint her­itage build­ing, Soyka Rest has brass fur­nish­ings such as vin­tage globe pen­dant lamps and wood-

backed ban­quette so­fas that com­ple­ment the ex­posed vaulted brick ceil­ing, all of which add a tex­tu­ral ef­fect and con­trib­ute to a cosy din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Woven rat­tan con­trasts with the green and tan­ger­ine hues to cre­ate a space that ex­udes warmth, and which also in­cor­po­rates a rich mix of colours.

Grab a seat along the bar counter in the cen­tre of the restau­rant and sip a Sin­ga­pore Sling or some teas from TWG Tea, or in­dulge in Asian fare like dim sum, laksa, bak kut teh and durian ice cream!

RIGHT Pat­terned tiles add to the over­all tex­tu­ral aes­thet­ics in the space.

BELOW The de­sign of the menu in­cludes botan­i­calin­spired el­e­ments.

ABOVE Brass and wood tones through­out the restau­rant give it a warm and wel­com­ing am­bi­ence.

LEFT Pops of teal and blue help add con­trast, al­low­ing furniture and fur­nish­ings to stand out.
