New restaurants and cafes in Singapore - November 2018

Image adapted from: @_zhihui.lim

We’re nearing the end of the year, so let’s just wait for the new year to start any dieting plans. After all, plenty of new food joints have opened their doors this November for us to feast on. From massive American burgers to freshly made pasta, here are 20 new cafes and restaurants for us to gorge ourselves silly:

1. Waterbath Chef - DIY protein bowls with over 24 sides

The healthy eating fad appears to be here to stay, but cafe Waterbath Chef offers a more creative take on grain bowls and superfoods. They’re clearly Asian-inspired with proteins like Real Crab Meat in Chili Crab Sauce and sides like Honey Mustard Soya Chips.

While our main gripe with other healthy cafes is the limited number of ingredients, Waterbath Chef has a staggeringly long list of add-ons - there’re at least 7 carbs, 6 proteins, and 24 sides to choose from. We’re also pleased to see that their range of sauces - they term them as ‘Flavor Bombs’, includes classics like Roasted Sesame but also novelty dressings like Spicy Tom Yum.

A Regular Size starts from $8.90 while a Starving Size starts from $12.90.

Those who can’t make it all the way to West Coast for lunch can order via their online delivery site.

Think of the most minimalistic cafe you’ve seen, and Apartment Coffee is sure to top that. Simply put, it’s all white paint and wooden furniture with very little else. Their coffee menu’s just as concise, with filter roasts changing on a weekly basis.

Try their Colombia El Mirador ($4.50) that comes with a splash of milk and subtle biscuity notes. Those who don’t like coffee can choose from non-coffee options like Java Silver Buds, a green tea flavoured with rose, or Madagascar Mava, a hot chocolate flavoured with orange.

3. The 1872 Clipper Tea - Tea bar with iced tea mocktails & tea puffs

 

New restaurants - The 1872 Clipper Tea

As tea fanatics, we recently tried 1872 Clipper Tea’s new tea bar in ION. They’ve got standard teas like Classic English Breakfast ($4.20) and Timeless Earl Grey ($4.20) but also a range of Iced Tea Mocktails.

Our favourite was the Singapore Sling ($4.70) which mixed a full-bodied Classic English Breakfast with subtle notes of hibiscus, coconut, lychee, and pineapple.

Other interesting concoctions include their Iced Tea Lattes ($5.80), with flavours like Matcha, Oolong, and Hojicha.

New restaurants - The 1872 Clipper Tea

The tea bar also offers a variety of sweet treats, such as Tea Puffs ($3.20 each, 4 for $12), Chiffon Cakes ($6.80), and Scones (2 for $6) - served with fresh clotted cream and strawberry jam.

When you’ve got dietary constraints, boy, is it hard to find good food in Singapore. But with the recent launch of Hello Baby, backed by the folks from HRVST,  vegans now have their own reliable fast food kiosk to fulfil any burger cravings.

Their Beets & “Egg” Burger ($10) is made from crunchy beetroot chips, egg-free frittata, and cheddar, all tucked in between a vegan burger bun that’s onion and garlic free.

After a long week, there’s nothing like treating ourselves to a fancy array of desserts. Boutique dessert cafe Duxton 41 lets you do just that, and thankfully, you’ll be tucking into their cakes and pastries guilt-free since all are free of sugar and rich in protein - some of their desserts are even made with whey protein!

New restaurants - Duxton41

They offer guilt-free desserts like Galaxy Stone ($8), a rich fudge cake layered with fresh fruits and a brown rice sponge, and Muscle Profiterole ($4.25), a cream puff that’s filled with isolate whey cream filling.

Other treats worth trying include the Ultimate Fudge Cake ($8), Tropical Rainbow Eclair ($4.50) and Sugar Free Soft Serve Ice Cream ($3.75).

There’s no shortage of trendy cafes in Upper Thomson area these days, but Birdy’s nailed it a hole in one with their floor-to-ceiling windows and light-filled space. That said, nothing here is particularly Instagrammable - it’s the delish brunch plates that’ve caught our eye.

New restaurants - Birdy's

Image credit: @anjdrinkstothat

The menu is surprisingly extensive for a cafe, since it’s divided into Day and Night. Till 4PM, they dole out light choices like Cheese & Pickles Toastie ($13) and Truffle Mushroom Pasta ($18). When night falls, the menu offers heartier mains like Pan Fried Barramundi ($25) and Wagyu Cheese Burger ($24).

Those after a glass of wine will be pleased: they offer both new and old world wines from countries as far-flung as Austria and Argentina.

Address: 215F Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574349
Opening hours: Mon: 10AM-11PM, Wed-Thu: 10AM-11PM, Fri: 10AM-12AM, Sat: 8AM-12AM, Sun: 8AM-4PM (Closed on Tue)

7. Fatburger - 4-patty beef burgers from LA

 

New restaurants - Fatburger

Image credit: @michelleishigh

The name Fatburger is an iconic one in hamburger history, with a record number of Hollywood actors and A-list celebs claiming it as their absolute favourite burger joint. Their brioche buns are reportedly pillowy soft, which offered a tasty contrast to the crunchiness of the complimentary onions, pickles, and lettuce.

New restaurants - Fatburger

Image credit: Eatbook

Their Quad Burger ($15.90) is a massive beast. 4 beef patties with all the toppings you’d like - cheese, egg, beef bacon, onion rings, and chilli for an additional $1 each. No doubt that you’ll be eating up your daily intake of calories in one seating, but it’s worth sacrificing your diet for the juicy patties and buttery-soft buns.

It isn’t easy for those with regular apetities though: anyone who finishes their Quad Burger gets framed on their Wall of Fame and a certificate too.

New restaurants - Fatburger

But if you’re staying true to your diet, this Skinny Burger is a good choice - it has no carbs whatsoever since there are no buns

Over at Leng Kee Community Club, The Living Room Eating House is a tranquil cafe that serves up local fare. With the likes of favourites like Mee Siam ($3.50), Prawn Noodles (from $4), and Nasi Lemak (from $3), there’s every reason to head down especially since the prices are similar to what you’d find at the coffee shop downstairs.

9. Halcyon & Crane - Sichuan-inspired brunch

 

New restaurants - Halcyon & Crane

Image credit: @katielewww

Those who’ve visited Birds Of A Feather along Amoy Street will notice that Halcyon & Crane has parallel similarities. No surprises here, since they’re both ran by the same team: they’re both fusion joints with a Sichuan-influenced menu, and housed in beautiful airy spaces.

What’s more, Halcyon & Crane is in Paragon so it’s an ideal space to take a pit stop from the ever-crowded shopping malls of Orchard Road.

New restaurants - Halcyon & Crane

Those after a light brunch will enjoy fusion flavours like King’s Chicken Hash Benedict ($21), a classic brunch dish that comes topped with Sichuan gong bao chicken or their Clams & Yam Noodle ($22), an interpretation of vongole pasta.

10. Bread Createur - freshly baked French pastries

 

New restaurants - Bread Createur

Bread Createur has the wafting scent of freshly baked bread, but it’s unlike any neighbourhood bakery you’ve ever seen. It’s a rather snug space - nothing fancy in terms of decor - but that doesn’t matter when you’re eyeing the glorious display of French pastries.

New restaurants - Bread Createur

Amidst flaky croissants ($3.20) and caramelised kouign amanns ($3.50), they also serve up savoury breads like Charcoal Bacon & Cheese ($5.50) and Croque Monsieur ($5.90). If a delicate pastry doesn’t quite satisfy, they also offer heartier mains like a Club Sandwich ($12.90).

11. LINO - wood-fired pizza & homemade pasta

 

New restaurants - LINO

There might be an influx of Italian restaurants in Singapore, but we sure love our Italian cuisine. Over at LINO, we can look forward to wood-fired pizzas and homemade pastas. Their Burrata Pizza ($28), for instance, comes with slow roasted cherry tomatoes and generous slabs of burrata cheese. It goes without saying that there’s a thin-crust base with a delightfully tasty char. .

New restaurants - LINO

All pasta choices are solid, but their standout dishes would be the Pappardelle with Crab Meat ($32) and Fettuccine with Short Rib Ragu ($22). If you opt to share, they also have plates like Grilled Octopus ($22) and Hummus ($14).

12. Butter - affordable fine-dining in the CBD

 

New restaurants - Butter

Image credit: @oo_foodielicious

At first glance at Butter’s menu, everything is deceivingly simple. Mains like Trio of Prawn Pasta ($28) and Chicken 2-way ($28)? Starters that are described as Forest ($14) and Tomatoes ($12)? Don’t be fooled: all dishes are backed with thoughtful consideration.

Take the seemingly straightforward Tomatoes - it’s served as a salad with confit, sun-dried, brulee, grilled, and foam tomatoes. Similarly, the Trio of Prawn Pasta comes with plump tiger prawns, dried shrimps, and kawa ebi ( deep fried shrimp) over capellini.

New restaurants - Butter

The Chocolate Cloud will be set on fire to reveal a delish mix of chocolate ice cream and cotton candy.

New restaurants - The Sampan

If you’re craving Southeast Asian food but need to choose just one, then it’s The Sampan where you should head directly to. As a new joint along Boat Quay, they offer dishes influenced by Indonesian and Vietnamese cuisines. Try their Blue Swimmer Crab & Pomelo Salad ($14) for a generous heap of crab meat, pomelo, avocado, and green mango.

New restaurants - The Sampan

A must-try dish is their Pork and Chicken Choi Bao (vegetable wrap, $4/each) that comes with a generous amount of minced meat wrapped in lettuce leaves. And on the plus side, there’s no carbs whatsoever.

Over at Udon Komadori, it’s their udon that’s the star of the show. They often have fresh premium ingredients like truffle, ikura, and uni, but one standout regular on their menu is their Uni Roast Beef Udon ($17) - each strand comes drenched in uni cream, with roast beef slices and a fresh piece of uni on top.

New restaurants - Udon Komadori

New restaurants - Nonya Nonya

Peranakan restaurants are often thought of as old school favourites that bring back nostalgic memories of your grandma’s cooking. At Nonya Nonya, look forward to traditional dishes like Ayam Buah Keluak ($16) and Ngoh Hiang ($10) but also modern dishes like Scallop Lemak ($28). This comes with 7 pan-seared scallops swimming in a rich coconut-based gravy.

16. Menya Kokoro - Japan’s most popular dry ramen

 

New restaurants - Menya Kokoro

We’re easily swept away by anything Japanese, and the same applies to mazesoba. Mazesoba is essentially dry ramen that’s mixed with minced meat, char siew, spring onions, and nori but at Menya Kokoro, they offer up a range of different flavours.

New restaurants - Menya Kokoro

The original is the Tokyo Maze Soba ($10.80) but they also offer Spicy Maze-Soba ($11.80), Melting Cheese Maze-Soba ($12.80). For our local tastebuds, there’s Maze-Don and Curry Maze-Don ($13.80) on the menu.

17. Bar Cicheti - pasta and wine pairings

 

New restaurants - Bar Cicheti

Image credit: @barcicheti

Bar Cicheti’s an Italian classic. As much as we enjoy the likes of pizzas and truffle fries, this Italian joint brings us back to an era that’s all about al dente pasta and matching wines. When here, try the Fusilli Nero ($15/ $28), a delish plate of squid ink pasta that’s loaded with uni, crab, and anchovy.

All pasta dishes are offered in entree and main size - the former is appropriately sized so you can try various dishes.

New restaurants - Bar Cicheti

If the extensive wine list is too much of an information overload, simply ask for recommended wine pairings - bottles start from $69.

New restaurants - Basque Kitchen by Aitor

Image credit: @teddyfoodievoyage

The head chef at Basque Kitchen by Aitor comes from the one-Michelin star Iggy’s, so you can be sure that the food here is fine dining at its best. Take the Prime Ribs for instance, it’s a solid chunk of Australian 200 days grain-fed beef, and pairs beautifully with the silky-smooth mash on the side.

New restaurants - Basque Kitchen by Aitor

Other savoury highlights include Marmitako (Classic Basque fish stew), Oxtail Risotto with Truffle and Foie Gras, and Black Grouper. Set lunches start from $45 and are available on weekdays, while you can choose from three, five, or seven-course tasting menus for dinner - starting from $115.

19. Gake - Japanese tapas & sake bar

 

New restaurants - Gake

Image credit: @gakesg

Gake might be a Japanese-European restaurant but unlike various fusion eateries, it doesn’t try to cram too many flavours into one dish. In fact, the chef - originally from sake bar Boruto - has a key personal mantra of keeping things simple.

New restaurants - Gake

Image credit: @gakesg

The menu comes with a range of savoury bites, like Grilled Prawns, Foie Gras with Citrus Sauce, and Yuzu Infused Tomatoes. All are relatively small, so feel free to order up and share with a group of friends.

New restaurants - Zen

Image credit: @brennwald

Quite possibly the most luxe choice in this entire list, Zen is a restaurant that’s headed by Bjorn Frantzen, a 3-Michelin-starred Swedish chef. It sure doesn’t come cheap: dining here means picking from tasting menus that start from $450/person.

From what we’ve sourced, the food looks utterly delectable with offerings like Uni Chawanmushi and Lightly Grilled Botan Ebi (Shrimp). Zen is scheduled to open 21 November 2018, and reservations are already open for the months of November and December.
