Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in December 2017

New Restaurants

Original Orchard Emerald Beef Noodle
The few weeks old Original Orchard Emerald Beef Noodle is located at Tai Thong Crescent, as part of the mixed development project of The Venue. We understood from the current team that they are friends with the original owner, and this is the only outlet (for now). The menu is very concise, with the classic option being the Beef Noodles, Beef Brisket Hor Fun, Beef Balls Soup and Oxtail with Rice. Priced slightly higher than the usuals, but with the comfort of air-condition and of course satisfying bowl of beef noodles. [Read more here…]

Minions Cafe Singapore
If you are a die-hard minions café, you must have already heard wind of the latest character café to open in Singapore. Yes, it would have been despicable of us not to officially share that Minions Cafe Singapore has officially opened at Orchard Central. The pop-up cafe concept under “THE GUEST cafe&diner” will operate from 23 November 2017 (Thurs) to 31st January 2018 (Wed). Expect cutesy minion-ish dishes like Minions Great Escape Cream Stew (S$20.90) and Minion Riceball Party (S$23.90); Sweet treats include the likes of Minion Pudding (S$24.90) and S’more and Minion’s Ice Cream (S$18); drink options include Banana Smoothie (S$12.30) and Café Latte (S$8.90/hot) imprinted with minion latte art no less.

Located at the second level of a shophouse along Telok Ayer, Kabuke seeks to deliver to diners a Japanese dining experience with a keen focus on sake. The restaurant name is therefore a play of the Japanese words Kabuki and Sake. Essentially Japanese food with a modern twist; the offerings are mainly pseudo bar food, Kabuke seeks to complement their food offerings with their sake selections. Expect Takoyaki Fries, Shiso Tempura with Hotate Tartare and even Sake Flight at S$24, where you will get to enjoy 3 glasses of 50ml sake “shots”. [Read more here…]
Address: 200A Telok Ayer Street, Level 2, Singapore 068638

Tempura Ten Ten
Located at the basement of Raffles City, Tempura Ten Ten is the latest tendon restaurant to open in Singapore. The Special Tendon here gets you chicken, prawn, mushroom, and other vegetables. If you are looking to have unagi to go with your tendon, go for the Unatendon. To go with the don, you can pick the different sauces, including the Original, Yuzu Pepper and Spicy sauce. Ramen selections such as Yuzu Chashu Ramen and the original Tonkotsu Chashu Ramen are also available. [Read more here…]

Alley on 25
Andaz Singapore’s 5 dining concepts are well placed to maximise the beautiful city skyline, while curating the spaces for distinct and intimate experiences that speak of a clear creative vision and rich awareness of the local culture. At level 25 of the hotel, there are 5 dining experiential concepts for dining guests; Auntie’s Wok and Steam offers comforting Szechuan-inspired dishes, Plancha’Lah! brings diners on omakase delight, Smoke & Pepper presents various grilled fare, The Green Oven takes on earthy food with aplomb, and Icehaus delights the sweet senses. [Read more here…]
Address: Andaz Singapore Hotel by Hyatt, 25th Floor, 5 Fraser Street, Singapore 189354

Monkey Warung
We were surprised that Naughty Nuri, the popular and famous Balinese style pork ribs has closed in Capitol Piazza and Katong. Meet Monkey Warung, the new restaurant which took over the space of Naughty Nuri at Capitol Pizza. Without a close glance, it’s hard to tell that anything has changed as the layout and space is kept pretty much intact from its predecessor. One of the highlights is the Signature Legendary Half Rack, which is good for sharing for two persons despite it being a half rack. Other than pork ribs which Monkey Warung strongly played on, there are many other Indonesian dishes to go along from the grilled meats, seafood and snacks sections on the menu. [Read more here…]
Address: 15 Stamford Road #01-84, Singapore 178906

Ramen Nagi
Perhaps one of the largest ramen store in town, the Ramen Nagi chain won the Tokyo Ramen of the Year 2012 and have since expanded from its first store in Fukuoka to numerous outlets across Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Philippines. The store at Suntec City is its first foray into Singapore, and we understood that they are already scouting around for ideal locations in town for future openings. There are four different varieties of ramen here, and while they all use the base tonkotsu pork broth, special sauces are included for three additional variations – Original, Black, Red and Green. These are the 4 Kings here, with a Limited King to be introduced going forward on a seasonal basis. [Read more here…]
Address: Suntec City Tower 2, North Wing, #01-512/513, Singapore 038989

B Burger
Located at the first level of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard, Benjamin Barker has transformed the space into the latest burger joint in town, B Burger. American-inspired, with Japanese influence, B Burger felt somewhat like a humble cousin to the popular New York City’s Shake Shack. It is our wish that one day, the likes of Shake Shack, Five Guys and In-and-Out will hit the shores of Singapore. For now, B Burger works perfect for me, and definitely fire up some satisfying burgs. Be here for the B Supreme or the Bomchika Wow Wow, paired it with the nacho soup and down all these with a cup of Matcha Milkshake; all at just about S$20. [Read more here…]

Mediterranean Restaurant Maggie Joan’s turns 2
The Gemmill Lane restaurant has introduced a new menu as it turned 2, and it is still all about the good food experience at the end of the day. Expect the same modern Mediterranean cuisine, with options from the ala carte menu or the Sharing Set Menu (S$78++ per person) where you get to try up to ten dishes. From starters like the Taramasalata, Squid ink and Nori and Crab sandwich and green harissa, to the mains like the Roasted barramundi, artichokes, seaweed & charred red pepper sauce or the Smoked potato & egg yolk raviolo, pickled girroles & hazelnuts, every dish is consistently good.

Enjoy a 4-Course Barbecue Menu with Unlimited Meats at Pan Pacific Singapore’s Poolside Patio
Poolside dining seems to be a popular concept by hotels in Singapore, which is a good complement to the existing restaurants within the hotel property. The latest hotel to introduce poolside dining is Pan Pacific Singapore’s Poolside Patio, an alfresco dining concept adjacent to the refurbished swimming pool and Poolside Bar. Available only on Friday and Saturday nights, the concept is a four-course barbecue menu. The main selling point for me is that you can request for unlimited servings of mains so long as you are up for more, which include Grilled Grass Fed Australian Tandoori Lamb Cutlets, Soy and Mustard Harami Steak, Tiger Prawns coated with Garlic Butter and Coriander and Lemon Marinated Red Snapper Fillet. Prices are S$78 per adult (food only), S$98 per adult including unlimited house wines and beers and S$39 per child (six to 11 years old). [Read more here…]
Address: Level 4, Pan Pacific Singapore, 7 Raffles Boulevard, Marina Square, Singapore 039595

Moosehead’s new menu is worthy of a try
As one of our favourite restaurants along Telok Ayer, it is always exciting for us to see what else this Mediterranean restaurant could offer on the table. The new menu of Moosehead draws inspirations from the various collaborations with international and local chefs and hawkers for chef Seumas. Expect dishes such as Burrata , zucchini, Thai basil pesto and curry leaves; INKA fried eggs, chorizo, aioli, chives; and O’Connor beef sirloin 300 gms, mushroom ketchup, roast spring onions. The flavours are solid, while the combination of ingredients are as usual, interesting. Our tip: don’t leave without trying the desserts, especially the Chocolate mousse with salted caramel and vanilla ice cream. [Read more here…]

PS.Cafe opens stunning glasshouse at Raffles city
Aesthetics are definitely important when it comes to PS.Cafe. After opening a gorgeous waterfront location at One Fullerton, the fashion turned food brand opened its newest outlet in Raffles City few weeks ago. The duplex glasshouse design is visually stunning as part of the CapitaLand mall constant revamp efforts. Daily breakfast menu is served till 4pm, perfect for weekends when you are not in a rushing mode. [Read more here…]Address: Raffles City S.C, 252 North Bridge Road, #03-37, S 179103
