New food finds this month
A pop-up cafe for kids (and kids at heart!), Michelin-star outposts from around the world, homey Italian cuisine and more!
You might find the sign “drink or go the f*** home” a tad aggressive, but hey, they’ve got only your best interests at heart. Pick from scallop, tuna, shrimp, yellowtail or swordfish ceviches, best enjoyed with alcoholic slushies like the Pisco Punch. Figured out the rationale behind its name yet?

All pastas at this honest Italian joint are handmade daily using imported Italian flour, using traditional methods of pulling and stretching. A meal will set you back by less than $15, and if you like what you’re eating, you can also buy their fresh pastas home to cook up a feast.

This Japanese restaurant is small, but we say this in a good way – just across your counter, your chefs work their wonder in preparing your 10-course omakase dinner while you feast on dish after dish, going from seasonal sashimi to Kagoshima A4 wagyu and more. A la carte orders begin at 9pm, but it’s worth the wait.

We’re not sure how you’d bear to dig into dishes as cute as these, but once you begin, it’s too good to stop. This adorable Miffy pop-up cafe is only here until the end of the year, so don’t wait!

In case you haven’t heard of the freshly unveiled Oakwood Premier OUE serviced apartments, they’re pretty rad. And the open-to-public in-house restaurant offers a daily breakfast buffet, as well as mod-international highlights like the eponymous Oakwood Se7enth Beef Burger and local fare like Nasi Goreng (Malay fried rice) for the rest of the day.

Kushikatsu, Japanese deep-fried skewers of meat, seafood and vegetables, is the lauded mainstay of this Michelin-star establishment from Osaka, Japan. And if deep-fried food ever rids its reputation for being cloying, it starts here. Dip the crisp, juicy pieces into the 6 types of accompanying artisanal sauces for an intricately layered mouthful that’ll have you reaching for more. And plenty more you’ll get – the omakase set features 20 skewers, featuring the Chef’s selection of ingredients for the day.
#01-04 Odeon Towers, 331 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 188720

The folks behind this dessert parlour concieved their idea after having trouble deciding on a single place to go for dessert with their friends. There wasn’t any spot that could cater for all their tastes, so… they opened one. Doh. Pick from Japanese-style kakigori (flavoured shaved ice) to local traditional desserts like mango sago.
54 South Bridge Rd, Singapore 058685

“Usual” doesn’t quite exist in the kitchen of this mod-Aussie venture. The unlikeliest of ingredients go into the most inventive of dishes such as Fried Jerusalem Artichokes with sunflower seed miso and Black Angus Short Rib with carrot and kelp puree.

Cocktail in hand, party it up at this famed Shanghainese bar, known for its electrifying, energetic parties. And, pun intended, this star-studded affair reaches new heights on the 71st floor of Singapore’s Swissotel The Stamford, with the city’s skyline all yours to soak up. If you can peel your eyes away from the seductive cabaret-style performances in cages, that is. Your next night out will be absolutely epic.
