Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in June 2019

New Restaurants

Burger & Lobster
I first visited Burger & Lobster in London few years back, and am excited that Burger & Lobster Singapore will open its first outlet on 23 May 2019 at Jewel Changi Airport. The Burger & Lobster Jewel outlet is located on level 5 of the mall, and boasts one of the best views of the Vortex waterfall which is arguably the landmark of the whole Jewel project. The Lobster Roll is priced at a reasonable S$40. (Read more here…)
Address: #05-203, Jewel, 78 Airport Boulevard, Singapore 819663

Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine
Opened a month ago, Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine (醉宇轩经典潮膳) is the latest concept by Jumbo Group at Far East Square. Stepping into the space of Zui Yu Xuan is like a transport back to time, made especially so by the spacious courtyard setting in the two-storey conserved building. It is a mini gallery feel as I walked through the courtyard to the restaurant, which displayed various types of traditional Teochew at pieces like opera costumes and porcelain pieces. If you happen to work in the CBD, located right beside Zui Yu Xuan a separate fast-casual new concept by Jumbo as well, Chao Ting (潮亭), which serves Teochew ‘Pao Fan’. (Read more here…)
Address: 130/131 Amoy Street, Singapore 049959

Min Jiang at Dempsey
Gorgeous space to begin with. Housed in one of the conserved colonial building in Dempsey, Min Jiang at Dempsey is the latest addition to this lifestyle destination. For those familiar to the Min Jiang brand, Min Jiang at One-North has closed and this is the Chinese restaurant’s second location other than its space at Goodwood Park Hotel. Min Jiang at Dempsey is a competent addition to the Dempsey dining scene, which frankly needs a fresh injection of good concepts. I like the contemporary and convention defying space here, and I am already looking forward to return for lunch soon. (Read more here…)
Address: 7A and 7B Dempsey Road, Singapore 249684

Homeground Grill & Bar
It is rare to find grilled concepts in heartland districts and Homeground Grill & Bar is one good addition. Located along Serangoon Road right beside 126 Dim Sum, the space at Homeground Grill is casual and it is approximately seven minutes walk from Boon Keng MRT Station. The restaurant is run by three female friends, who wants to create a casual spot for heartlanders to chill over food, and drinks in the evening. (Read more here…)
Address: 1088 Serangoon Road, Singapore 328188

Chuan Hung
By the same folks behind Birds of a Feather, and next-door neighbour restaurant 51 Soho, Chuan Hung focuses wholeheartedly on one particular Sichuan ingredient known as Mian Yang rice noodles. The clear broth are made from pork bones and lard, with the red broth prepared with Sichuan spices, pickled chillies and dried chillies and finished with the clear broth. Make sure you order Fried Crispy Pig Intestines and Braised Eggplant while at Chuan Hung.
Address: 51 Telok Ayer Street, #01-01, Singapore 048441

Violet Oon Singapore
The largest Violet Oon outlet opened at Jewel Changi, along with quite a number of exclusive dishes. The Jewel exclusive Nyonya Poh Piah Party platter is one to share, a traditional Peranakan home feast typically reserved for close friends and families. Other Jewel exclusive dishes include the likes of Little India Vegetable Curry with Roti Prata, char-grilled Ayam Panggang Katong, and dessert like Sugee Cake. The space of the Jewel outlet is beautiful and you could also catch a glimpse of the Vortex waterfall light show if you manage to snag a table at the back of the restaurant. (Read more here…)
Address: #01-205/206, Jewel, 78 Airport Boulevard, Singapore 819663

Buzzing Restaurants

New Head Chef starts at Solo Ristorante
Opened about six months ago, I only found out about Solo Ristorante along Amoy Street recently. The Italian restaurant is right beside Kimme and diagonally opposite Restaurant Nouri, and it is a good thing all three restaurants offer very different cuisine.  My first impression of Solo Ristorante is its cosy and somewhat homely vibes. There is a bar section which offered the best view of the chefs at work, and you can catch a clear glimpse of how each dish is prepared. The main dining area is an intimate size, elegant yet not too formal. (Read more here…)
Address: 45 Amoy Street, Singapore 06987

Les Bouchons Rive Gauche welcomes you back with their Riviera Sunday Brunch
Enjoy French food every Sunday beside the Singapore River with Les Bouchons Rive Gauche latest Bouchons Riviera Brunch. Get to choose from classic signatures of the restaurant, or newly introduced brunch-inspired options including the Riviera Wellness Bowl and the Bouchons Sunday Roast – which changes every week!

Shang Palace’s New Menu showcases Chef Mok’s Finesse
The flagship Shang Palace outlet for Shangri-La Hotel recently revamped its menu with a focus on three parts – Nostalgia, Signature and Innovation dishes. Helmed by Chef Mok Kit Keung who has more than 40 years of culinary experience, Chef Mok was previously at Shang Palace Kowloon where Chef Mok brought the restaurant to 2-Michelin stars in 2011. Chef Mok’s experimentation of dishes extends to his seasonal menu as well, such as the Stewed Boston Lobster with Lemongrass and Garlic served in Claypot. Another dish inspired by the abundance of coconuts in Singapore is the Coddled Sliced Soon Hock Fillet and Young Coconut in Fish Broth. Expect familiar flavours with high quality ingredients here.
