Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in August 2020

New Restaurants

Lucali BYGB
The most exciting new restaurant opening for us since circuit breaker ended in Singapore. Lucali BYGB is a famous pizza brand from Brooklyn, New York City and Singapore is its first overseas outpost, being a collaboration between BYGB Hospitality and Lucali. The restaurant takes up the previous space of Kilo Kallang, and good vibes aside, expect a concise menu including their famous Original 18″ Pie. [Read more here…]

Miss Vanda by Labyrinth
Online food platform is the new trend, and I’m not referring to third delivery platforms like Deliveroo or GrabFood. There are a couple of Michelin Star restaurants which launched their own delivery concept recently, Miss Vanda by Labyrinth being one we tried. This is a casual spin-off of the One Michelin starred Labyrinth by Singaporean Chef LG Han, where you can find Singaporean style dishes on their website at relatively more casual prices.

Grammi is a brand new digital dining platform by Michelin-Starred Chef Beppe De Vito (Braci, Amo) which offers a diverse and affordable selection of Italian-Mediterranean dishes. Grammi is available for islandwide delivery and self pick-ups. Rhere is a very good mix of food ranging from ready-to-eat, grocery and drinks staples, and some of our favourites are the Baked Caserecce and Burrata Salad. [Read more here…]

Located in the Ann Siang Hill enclave within The Scarlet Singapore, Laifabar sells Wanton Noodles and the name is inspired from the Chinese characters 来发, which literally means ‘come to prosper’. For the location, the price of the dishes are generally very affordable. Dishes are made from scratch here, include traditional snacks like Prawn Fritters and Egg Slice other than Wanton Noodles [Read more here…]
Where: 33 Erskine Road, The Scarlet Hotel, Singapore 069333

Jimmy Monkey
As one of the established name in the cafe scene, the newest cafe to open in Paya Lebar is Jimmy Monkey at Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ). The main draw for us is the alfresco dining space. The space is well-designed with counter and table seats, and there is some sort of lush greenery around despite being right beside the main road towards Geylang side. The brunch menu is a short one page selection, where you can choose to customise add-on sides to your choice. [Read more here…]
Where: 2 Paya Lebar Road, #01-10 Park Place Residences at PLQ, Singapore 409053

Kiyoshi Japanese Restaurant
Kiyoshi is a causal Japanese restaurant which opened during circuit breaker and is located along Amoy Street.The space is cosy, well-partitioned so you are not physically close to other diners. The menu is very extensive and offers various types of Japanese cuisine – Sushi, Sashimi, Donburi, Ramen, Udon, Yakitori, amongst others. It is quite suitable for families or your team lunch in the day as the dining environment is quite pleasant. [Read more here…]
Where: 75 Amoy Street, Singapore 069894

Shift Syphon Bar
From the guys behind Upside Down Coffee Roaster, this small coffee- only cafe at Lavender opened days before circuit breaker and have restated operations again. It is located at the corner unit of the level one commercial units at Southbank condominium, so you can stroll here from Lavender MRT or from the car park at the North Bridge Road Market & Food Centre. Well technically there’s no food option, but an extensive menu of coffee variations and of course, Syphon-brewed coffee if you haven’t noticed this on the cafe’s name. No frills coffee stall, similar to its renamed Shift Coffee Stand at Amoy, the Upside Down Coffee Roaster group now has rebranded its retail outlets under the Shift branding. [Read more here…]
Where: 883 North Bridge Road, #01-13 Southbank, Singapore 198785

NOA means water in Laotian, and it is a coffee bar concept which only open on weekdays in the CBD. The space of NOA is contemporary looking, and the coffee menu also include bites such Gula Melaka Pandan Cake and Otah Quiche. It is a spacious spot to enjoy some good coffee and it is a pity that it is not opened on weekends.
Where: 17 Stanley Street, Singapore 068736

Buzzing Restaurants

New Four Hands Mod-Asian Collaboration Between Ocean Restaurant And Forest
The highlight of the Four Hands Mod-Asian Collaboration at Ocean Restaurant is that the dishes are prepared using sustainably sourced seafood.

A Casual British Summer by Kirk Westaway At Anti:dote
It is not often we get to see Executive Chef Kirk Westaway of the eponymous JAAN by Kirk Westaway in a non-fine dining setting, and this is one of the best opportunities to try some of his creations as part of a seasonal two months pop-up in Fairmont Singapore’s Anti:dote from 13 July onwards. Expect dishes such as Kirk’s Fish and Chips (this is our favourite!), The Scotch Egg, Berkshire Black Pork Loin and Baked Apple Pie.
