Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in February 2021

New Restaurants

Happy Congeee (滿粥了)
Located in a new food court Bgain at Arc 380, Happy Congee (滿粥了) is a new stall which sells Hong Kong style Chee Cheong Fun and Congee. It is opened by an ex-consultant of the popular Mui Kee Congee, hence I was quite keen to check it out. The most iconic flavour to go for the Chee Cheong Fun is the Triple Sauce Rice Noodle Roll (S$3.50). This Chee Cheong Fun is drizzled with peanut sauce, sweet sauce and light soy sauce, and it remind us of the version we had in Hop Yik Tai Chee Cheong Fun in Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong.

Wa-i Sushi
Japanese omakase is very popular in Singapore and there is a constant demand for new restaurants offering omakase menus. Checked out a relatively new omakase restaurant Wa-i Sushi located in The Scarlet Hotel, a cosy 14-seater space where most seats are directly at the counter. Behind the counters are Chef Simon and Chef Steven, whom are well-versed in Japanese cuisine from their previous culinary stints. [Read more here…]
Address: 33 Erskine Road, #01-01, The Scarlet Hotel, Singapore 069333

Rockon Tokyo
Located along Tanjong Pagar Road, Rockon Tokyo is a relatively new Japanese restaurant which specialises in obanzai Kyoto-style home cooked meals. Obanzai is a traditional type of Japanese cuisine native to Kyoto where most of the ingredients used hails from Kyoto as well. The shophouse space is a cosy 22-seater restaurant, helmed by head chef Sekiya Katsuyuki. The menu is a mix of ala carte selections, or you can go for the 8-course Omakase meal (S$88) which we did.

Fire @ 1-Atico
Located at the top of Ion Orchard on level 55, Fire restaurant at 1-Atico only opened last month and takes over the space of the now-defunct Salt Grill & Sky Bar. The new Argentinian restaurant in Orchard Road is part of 1-Group, which also manages restaurants such as Alkaff Mansion, The Summerhouse and The Garage. The interior of Fire at 1-Atico is gorgeous. High ceiling with ample natural light, the highlight is definitely the panoramic city view as well. There is a dining section once you enter the restaurant, as well as a mezzanine level with ample of tables by the window for the best dining view. [Read more here…]
Address: 2 Orchard Turn, #55-01 Ion Orchard, Singapore 238801

Prairie by Craftsmen
A very spacious garden cafe tucked away in Cluny Court, we like the outdoor space with a glass ceiling at the newly opened cafe in Bukit Timah. Expect an Instagrammable outdoor garden space, or opt for the air-conditioned indoor seats for a more comfortable dining experience. That said, we wish that its breakfast/brunch dishes can be extended beyond 11am on weekends.
Address: 501 Bukit Timah Road, #01-05C Cluny Court, Singapore 259760

The Brewing Ground
New kid on the block at The Yard in Joo Chiat Place, The Brewing Ground is located in a former primary school premise and we love just how standalone the cafe is. There is outdoor seating for bigger groups, but the indoor space is cosy and the cafe serves a good variety of brunch and pasta dishes. The coffee is robust for a good start to the day.
Address: 406 Joo Chiat Place, #01-24 The Yards, Singapore 428084

The Bread Rack
Located within Space@Kovan, we the Scrambled Eggs Croissant and Almond Croissant at the newly opened bakery cafe, freshly baked and served to our table. There is also a proud display of different types of sourdough bread, and of course coffee to go along!
Address: 9 Yio Chu Kang Road, #01-55, Space@Kovan, Singapore 545523

Alchemist The Mill
The local coffee brand opened its newest outlet at Jalan Kilang few weeks ago, and we Love the industrial space and the beautifully partitioned capsule to enjoy the coffee in private. The building has an interesting design too, by the same team behind the Gothic-inspired Parkview Square, James Adams Design. [Read more here…]
Address: 5 Jalan Kilang, #02-02 The Mill, Singapore 159405

Eat 3 Bowls Station
We may not be able to fly to Taiwan now, so it is great news for Taiwanese food lovers that popular casual Taiwanese restaurant Eat 3 Bowls (呷三碗) has opened their second outlet at Pasir Panjang recently. We first visited Eat 3 Bowls at its Crawford Lane outlet, and love the Taiwanese dishes there. The first outlet at Crawford Lane takes on a classroom theme, and the Pasir Panjang outlet is decked with a train theme interior. The menu is concise and you can expect some of the Taiwanese delights like Braised Pork Rice (S$5), Tomato Omelette (S$6) and Salted Crispy Chicken (S$7.80). [Read more here…]

Buzzing Restaurants

Revamped Menu & Expanded Space With Excellent Catalan Cuisine At Restaurant Gaig
A slice of Catalan cuisine along Stanley Street, Restaurant Gaig went through an expansion of space and menu revamped last year. Restaurant Gaig Singapore is actually the first international outpost of the Michelin-starred restaurant in Barcelona by chef Carles Gaig, a celebrated name synonymous with Catalan cuisine. The Stanley Street restaurant is family-owned, run by Carles’ daughter, Núria Gibert, along with executive chef Martí Carlos Martínez, who trained under Carles. It now spots an expanded dining space including a private dining room. If anything, the recent dining experience we had at Gaig gives me the impression of a stronger Catalan character on its menu, and the dishes are executed with more finesse than my dining experience 3 years ago.
