Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in March 2020

New Restaurants

Sum Dim Sum
Located along Jalan Besar Road, Sum Dim Sum is a few months old Dim Sim restaurant which is located just one street from the famous Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant. There are at least 40 dishes on the Dim Sum menu with most of the items priced moderately below S$5. The Signature Crispy Pork Bun (S$6) is infused with pandan flavour and is the best item I had here. Service is unfortunately, bad. [Read more here…]

Torii Izakaya
A relatively new Japanese concept along Duxton Road, Torii Izakaya takes up half of the previous space of Pince & Pints. The food menu is quite extensive, from appetisers to a huge selections of yakitori, some sushi selections and donburi. As an izakaya, the drinks list is quite extensive where there is no lack of wine, sake or cocktail options. Go for the Signature Beef Donburi which has Australian beef, caviar, truffle, foie gras and onsen tamago. [Read more here…]

The halal casual eatery takes up a relatively small and narrow space, while offering Singaporean Zi Char dishes at a relatively affordable price. Signature dishes include the likes of Seafood Crispy Noodle and Curry Fish Head. [Read more here…]

The Blue Ginger
The 25 years old Peranakan restaurant opened its second outlet in the revamped Great World City mall this year and boasts a much more contemporary interior compared to the Tanjong Pagar shophouse restaurant. Do expect to see familiar dishes across the two outlets, though there are some new dishes which are only available at Great World City. Some of our favourites include the Sotong Keluak, Nonya Noodles and the Ayam Panggang ‘Blue Ginger’. (Read more here…)

Lai Bao
A 1960s-inspired Zichar? Lai Bao is a new Zichar concept located in Toa Payoh and offers a mix of traditional and modern twist dishes in a coffeeshop setting. It is managed by Baoshi F&B Management which also runs other dining concepts like Founders Bak Kut Teh, Wee Nam Kee, Ah Chiang’s Traditional Porridge and Monga Taiwanese Fried Chicken. Some of the signature dishes at Lai Bao are the Sixties Fish Head Charcoal Steamboat, Crisp Fried Aubergine & Pork Floss and the Seafood Lala Ying Yang Hor Fun. (Read more here…)

Le Fusion
A new east meets west concept in Robertson Quay, Le Fusion takes inspiration from the Chinese word ‘Le’ which means joy, where dishes are infused with western elements though the roots are very much Chinese. Some of the dishes to expect are the Rougie Foie Gras served atop Chinese glutinous rice, Imperial Double Boiled Soup which is accompanied by ‘nu er hong’ rice wine, and the Crispy Pork Belly Mantou which takes inspiration from Philippines’s rendition of suckling pig, lechon.
