Ivan Brehm & Nouri // Singapore

The work of visionary chef Ivan Brehm, Singapore old town’s trailblazing Nouri opened its doors in June 2017. With a name alluding to the Latin for ‘nourishment’, the restaurant and bar seeks to transcend our geographic boundaries by harnessing the flavours, textures and cooking techniques which unite seemingly disparate cuisines. On a mission to highlight the cultural similarities which underpin the human experience, chef-owner Brehm coined the term ‘crossroads cooking’ to describe the blurring of food borders that Nouri is known for.

Prior to launching Nouri, Brehm worked at Heston Blumenthal’s world-famous Bray flagship, The Fat Duck. Brehm was development chef at the restaurant’s experimental kitchen for four years, before becoming executive head chef at Singapore’s Bacchanalia and earning it a Michelin star in 2016.
