Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in March 2018

New Restaurants

Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke
While there are no lack of Japanese ramen joints in Singapore, it is my first time coming across a duck ramen specialty restaurant from the newly opened Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke. Located at Holland Village, this new restaurant is the 13thconcept by Chef Keisuke, who is already relatively well-known by his other popular concepts such as Tendon Ginza Itsuki and Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei. All the ramen options are duck related and the main highlight here is the use of hybrid Irish duck in all the ramen options. Every concept of Chef Keisuke makes waves each time it is opened and I have no qualms about Ginza Kamo Soba Kyudaime Keisuke being the next hit in Holland Village.

Say Chiizu Cafe
Since opening in late 2017, Say Chiizu takeaways kiosks have been mushrooming throughout the island, with branches at VivoCity, 313@Somerset, White Sands Shopping Centre, The Clementi Mall and the latest being at Waterway Point. Come March 2018, you can enjoy your Hokkaido Cheese toasts at a Say Chiizu Cafe opening at Bugis+ and they will be rolling out a series of cafe-exclusive menu items! Cannot wait to return for its Original Cheese Toast. [Review out soon…]
Address: Bugis+, 201 Victoria Street, #04-01, Singapore 188067

Wakey Wakey
The café scene in Singapore has slowed down significantly in the past one year and it’s refreshing to learn that new concepts have sprung up this year. Located at The Concourse along Beach Road right beside Le Canele d’Or, Wakey Wakey is a relatively new concept by the team behind Strangers’ Reunion and is currently still in the soft launch phase. The bright and spacious setting is very welcoming, with the interior spotting some raw industrial and wooden touches. [Read more here…]

Bearded Bella
This Melbourne inspired cafe in Tanjong Pagar is already making waves on social media even though it is still in its soft launch phase. We spoke to the staff and heard that the team is still in the midst of finalising their food menu which will be rolled out officially some time in March. Till then, every item on the menu now such as their coffee, tea, juices, cakes and some bites will be on tipping basis. Address: 8 Craig Rd, Singapore 089668

One Bowl Restaurant & Bar
Located at The Sultan hotel along Jalan Sultan Road, One Bowl Restaurant & Bar is helmed by Head Chef Tammie Loke who is a home cooked turned chef. The casual restaurant serves up traditional Singapore dishes like Char Siew Noodles, Claypot Chicken Rice and Crispy Prawn Rolls, with all dishes are priced below S$15. If you only have space for one dish, the Signature Char Siew Noodles is a must try with its melt-in-the-mouth tender pork belly slices.
Address: 101 Jalan Sultan, The Sultan Hotel Lobby, Singapore 199002

Buzzing Restaurants

Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse reopens, and we cannot wait 
Opened since 2012, Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse recently moved just next door along Mohamed Sultan Road to a brand new space. The exposed brick walls, together with the dark wooden tones are meant to evoke a warm Italian farmhouse vibe, and we have to agree that it does bring diners into a different world as you walk into the restaurant. With the same focus as an Italian steakhouse like before, with Bistecca (which is Italian for ‘steak’) famed for being the first restaurant to bring the 1kg Florentine Wagyu T-Bone Steak into the Singapore steakhouse scene. We heard generally good reviews of Bistecca Tuscan prior to our visit, and the restaurant does meet our expectations. The newly renovated space makes the restaurant now an establishment to adore. [Read more here…]

Ash & Elm launches new Spring menu for Sunday Brunch
Intercontinental Singapore’s all-day dining concept, Ash & Elm, refreshes its small plates offerings this Spring. Some highlights includes the Pan-fried French Duck Foie Gras, Steamed Atlantic Cod with Asparagus and Taggiasca Olive Sauce, Basil Risotto with Mushrooms, Parmesan and Parsley and the Gratinated Braised Endive with Black Truffle and Comté Cheese. Expect the same buffet spread as always, in addition to the small plates. [Read more here…]

Firebake has a new breakfast set at S$4.50
Our favourite restaurant at Joo Chiat starts serving up breakfast daily (Tuesday to Sunday), with the highlight being their new Morning Set at S$4.50, comprising of 1 sourdough milk bun, 2 soft-boiled eggs, butter and a local kopi or tea. Just top up for an additional dollar for a serving of the kaya spread, which we found totally worthy. Another must-try is the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich (S$19), which has grilled zuchinni, grilled mushroom, Brie cheese and kasundi (Indian tomato mustard sauce) all layered on a sourdough roll. The breakfast option here is extensive, we wished we had two stomachs. [Read more here…]
Address: 237 East Coast Road, Level 1, Singapore 428930

Beauty in the Pot opens largest and third outlet at OneKM
After opening two outlets at OneKM Mall and The Centrepoint, one of the most popular hotpot restaurants in Singapore Beauty in the Pot opened its third and largest outlet just a week ago. Coincidentally, the newest outlet of the perpetually packed steamboat restaurant is also located at OneKM Mall, on Level 3 with a very spacious size of over 7,600 square feet and 288 seats. The first thing I notice about the newest outlet is the predominantly pink interior. The interior such as the walls and ceiling take reference from cherry blossoms during spring season, while the restaurant’s flooring features white marble stippled with pink quartz. This feels like a new outlet specially designed for the ladies! [Read more here…]

Garden Dome dining is a reality now at The Summerhouse
There is a serious lack of good restaurants in the North-East of Singapore, and the best thing which happened in terms of dining scene over the past one year is Seletar Aerospace Park. The Summerhouse is one of the most prominent dining destination in this JTC development, which I re-visited recently again after my visit to Wildseed Cafe last year. The most notable change is the newly introduced The Summerhouse Garden Domes, with 3 distinct interior themes of Bohemian, Scandinavian and Lounge, all fully air-conditioned, complete with own music sound system set amidst the lush garden.
