There’s no shortage of new restaurants for us to get a munch on in Singapore. With so many options, and so many of them focusing on different styles of food, where should you go? Due to the sudden rise of new establishments, we’ve decided to take a look at some of the restaurants that have opened their doors in Singapore and why you should try out their food.
A wonderful Peruvian restaurant opened by renown Spanish chef, Daniel Chavez. If you’re looking for appetizing seafood then Cevicheria won’t disappoint you with its amazing ceviche specialty, with four different styles of ceviche all waiting for you. But there’s more to Cevicheria that meets the eye as it highlights some great dishes from Peruvian culture, such as its crispy baby calamari and smoked Aji Amarillo chillies.

We’re not done with seafood quite yet, as we leave the more spicy themed dishes of Peru for traditional Japanese sushi. Nami offers a great variety of sushi rolls which are intricately made with a combination of ingredients from all over Japan to give you an experience you won’t find anywhere else.
Their stand out dish is easily their homemade dashi which is made with Hokkaido-sourced kombu and katsuobushi obtained from Kyushu. Other dishes to look out for are their pan fried tuna-head with sweet soy sauce and their sashimi, but their biggest highlight of all is their tasty and mouth watering Japanese Saga wagyu beef sirloin steak.

Housed on The Daulat Hotel, Santap offers some high grade sandwiches, pizzas and varied French and Italian dish recipes. If you’re on the mood for some piping hot rice then they have you covered as well, they even let you mix it up with ingredients such as beef, Portobello mushrooms and salmon.
We strongly recommend trying out their brunch menus though, their Eggs Benedict and avocado frittatas are perfect for a late Sunday morning meal and their churros and lemon tarts make for some great desserts to go along with your meal.
Address: 16 Madras Street, Singapore 208413
Bakalaki Greek Taverna
With the rise of Mediterranean food and its widespread acceptance there’s no perfect moment to try out these Greek-inspired restaurant that opened up recently on Tiong Bahru. Whether it’d be eating their greek-inspired seafood delicacies or trying out dishes like the Moussaka (a type of layered casserole) and even their special Tzatiki yogurt dipping sauce; Bakalaki offers a new type of experience and series of tastes that we can’t recommend enough, especially their grilled lamb ribs.

Let’s be honest, all of these restaurants serve tasty food… that could easily ruin your diet, and we wholeheartedly recommend Frunatic because we understand that. Frunatic doesn’t just offer food that’s healthier for you, it’s food that has been specifically concocted with the recommendation of wellness experts, dieticians, naturopathic doctors and physicians.
They make this fact known to you as well, as their first order of business is to know everything about your dietary and health preferences and make a healthy dish tailored specifically to you. That doesn’t mean they don’t have their own menu, their quinoa salad really makes the most out of an ingredient that’s quickly gaining traction in the wellness world and their zucchini pasta is also a stand out to keep in mind.

The Bird Southern Table & Bar
It’s a good thing we mentioned Frunatic because our next entry goes in a completely different direction. If you’re out for food that looks good, tastes good and will fill you up then The Bird is certainly the place to go. The Bird offers a variety of Southern-inspired dishes such as their Southern fried chicken, buttermilk biscuits, cheese and grits along with some good old macaroni and cheese. Of course, if we’re talking about combinations then nothing can compete with their chicken and waffles.
It’s not just food either, The Bird also has a variety of cocktails such as Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade and Watermelon Sling, so you’ll definitely have something equally as fun to accompany your food with.
Address: L1-82, Bay Level, B1-07, Galleria Level, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 10 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018956
Orchard Road is rife with restaurants of different shapes and sizes and a new challenger has appeared in the form of Tapas Club. Tapas Club offers Spanish inspired tapas dishes, bite sized dishes that you can eat quickly with some drinks. Their tapas are certainly well crafted and they serve a lot of classic ones such as Croquetas de Setas (mushroom croquettes), Croquetas de Jamon (ham croquets), Tartar de Atun, a cold almond soup mixed with red tuna tartare, tomato and avocado that just overwhelms you and many more.
If you’re looking for heavier dishes then Tapas Club won’t disappoint you either, their Fideua Negra (squid ink noodles) is certainly worth a tray if only to taste something completely new. We in particular enjoyed their different selection of grilled and braised meats.
Address: 181 Orchard Rd, Orchard Central, #02-13 to 15, Singapore 238896
Phone Number: +65 3163 7577
And these are all restaurants that opened recently too, it just goes to show how Singapore draws in styles and restaurants with food from all over the world, all at our fingertips. So go out there, give them a try and tell us what you think, bon apetit.
