Food Scoops: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants In December 2022

New Restaurants

When Chef Drew Nocente announced the closure of Salted & Hung, it surprised the foodie world. Fast forward few months later, Cenzo restaurant opened in the buzzing Club Street. Located in a charming shophouse, Cenzo is Chef Drew’s take on Italian cuisine with Australian touches together with AC Concepts. The menu takes on a more fun and causal approach where the dining concept leans towards sharing plates and communal-style dining. Bread & Snacks, Small Plates, Pastas, Mains, Vegetables and Desserts – there are a few dishes under each category and the best way to enjoy a meal here is to share the dishes (and calories).  [Read more here…]

Located in Tras Street, Gyutan-Tan is a new Japanese restaurant and Singapore’s first-ever gyutan (ox tongue) specialty restaurant. The menu features gyutan served in different ways, and there are also pork and chicken dishes if you are not into ox tongue per se. The lunch sets are quite value for money as each set comes with sides like mugimeshi (a mix of rice and barley), two kinds of Japanese pickles, salad paired with a lemon olive oil dressing, tororo (grated Japanese mountain yam), as well as a choice of oxtail or miso soup.

Located right beside Jinhonten, Kissajin at Shaw Centre is a new causal Japanese Omakase restaurant by the Les Amis Group. While Jinhonten also serves Omakase menus, Kissajin is much more causal and laid-back, and fortunately, more wallet-friendly as well. Only Omakase menus are served at Kissajin, where Lunch Omakase is at S$68++ for seven courses while Dinner Omakase is at S$98++ for eight courses.  [Read more here…]

The popular café which was started by a pair of sisters just opened a new second outlet in Bendemeer at Luzerne building, just few minutes’ walk from Boon Keng MRT Station. Expect the likes of The Breakfast Tart, a puff pastry decorated with bacon, mushrooms, leek, scrambled eggs and dressed in ikura caviar beurre blanc; and Octopus Mentaiko Rosti. [Read more here…]

Ocean Restaurant Reopened With Revamped Interior And Menu
Located in Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), Ocean Restaurant reopened recently after a revamp of its space and menu. Having been to Ocean previously, I love its new interior, which is much more elegant, sleek and aligned with the new fine-dining culinary direction. Chef Patron Olivier Bellin, the chef-owner of two Michelin-starred L’Auberge des Glazicks, is behind Ocean’s new menu which is modern European fine-dining. Born and trained in France, Chef Olivier Bellin signature dishes often reflect a hint of his hometown Brittany. The menu revolves around responsibly sourced seafood and locally farmed produce which echoes the S.E.A. Aquarium’s dedication to ocean conservation. [Read more here…
