Singapore - Feb 6-8

Going to Singapore for business in early February. I will have all day Sunday and then afternoons on Monday and Tuesday before departing for Hong Kong. I have read about the Hawker stands so was wondering if someone could recommend the best one for lunch on Sunday. Also, I would appreciate 2 restaurant recommendations for dinners on Sunday and Monday nights. I'm looking for something on the higher end and unique to Singapore (local famous chef) to really get the experience. To give you some quick background, I'm from NYC and a foodie and have eaten at the likes of all the famous NYC chefs as well as Tetsuya Wakuda in Sydney.

Thanks in advance for the help.

PS - If you have any suggestions for Hong Kong, those are welcome as well!
