The pleasure of dining in a small family-run restaurant is all yours at Buko Nero, an intimate fusion spot with no more than 20 tables. Chef Oscar Pasinato (originally from Italy) helms the kitchen, while his wife Tracy Ng Pasinato attends to the customers. The Italian-Asian fare tastes as delicious as its beautiful presentation: Try the chilled capellini with uni, scallop, and kombu, or the seared Hokkaido sea scallops with truffle reduction. While the set menu is usually very appetizing, you can also order à la carte. Small and personal Buko Nero is a rare pleasure amid Singapore’s many loud, oversize eating establishments.
