Let your eyes do the walk­ing as you step into ESORA, a 26-seater kappo-style restau­rant housed within a her­itage shop­house on Mo­hamed Sul­tan Road.

(In­ci­den­tally, both restau­rants be­long to Unlisted Col­lec­tion and are de­signed by Take­nouchi Webb.) A yel­low cedar wood main counter matched by a washi pa­per sky­light above, is where chef Shigeru Koizumi and his team craft del­i­cate morsels like foie gras mon­aka and Omi Wagyu, to be paired with spe­cialty in house tea blends. With such ex­treme at­ten­tion to de­tail, an as­tutely crafted bag will match the des­ti­na­tion.
