Singapore is home to thousands of restaurants, cafes and eateries – enough to cater to every whim of our taste buds, and beyond.

Over time, many restaurants have closed their doors only to open – revamped and ready – boasting contemporary takes on classic dishes, stunning interiors, and overall enhanced dining experiences that will keep you busy for a long time to come. Here’s a list of 8 of the best new restaurants to try.


Imperial Treasure Tasting Room

Imperial Treasure

An authentic Chinese fine dining experience, Imperial Treasure Tasting Room, located at Great World City is both contemporary and elegant, offering private dining and fixed menu meals that you can watch being cooked in front of you (apart from their regular restaurant services). Appetisers here begin at SGD $8, and their main course menu features dishes such as the Roasted Suckling Pig, Roasted Duck and a huge selection of dim sum starting at SGD $5 (available only during lunch hours). Try some sake with your meal too.

Walk into Antoinette and be charmed by its quintessential French café style interiors, which are almost as eye-catching as their wide selection of culinary delights. Their famous souffle pancakes are a customer favourite – light & airy, and every bite a delight – but they also have a selection of savoury mains that are not to be missed; among them the Crispy Pork Belly Confit, Wagyu Beef Tagliatelle & Crab Pomodoro. Sweet treats such as the Velvet Rouge Petit, La Rose & Superlova are almost too beautiful to eat – but don’t let that stop you.

BBR by Alain Ducasse

BBR by Alain Ducasse

After closing for renovation in 2017, Raffles Hotel Singapore has finally reopened, and with it, new restaurant BBR by Alain Ducasse – now serving delectable Mediterranean dishes, and sporting a new, contemporary ambience, with a central open kitchen. Expect exquisite tapas and unique & signature dishes such as the Pulpo a la Gallega (Galician-style octopus); but a visit to BBR wouldn’t be complete without trying their Cataplana de Marisco (a Portuguese seafood stew) which will have all your senses singing in harmony.


Kai Duck

Damian D’Silva, of Folklore (and, more recently, Masterchef Singapore) fame, heads this unique restaurant, focusing on heritage cuisine – traditional recipes and cooking techniques that have largely been lost in today’s modern restaurant scene. Food at Kin is served communal style, encouraging a dining experience that is centred around kinship and conversation. Most of the seats here are reserved for Straits Clan members, so make sure to call ahead and reserve a table before visiting. Once you’re there, enjoy delicious dishes such as Ngoh Hiang, Sambal Prawn Petai and Babi Masak Assam exactly as they are meant to be enjoyed.

El Teatro Tapas

El Teatro Tapas

Situated in the Arcade @ The Capitol Kempinski, El Teatro (‘the theatre’ in Spanish) Tapas lives up to its name and more, with items on the menu such as the Cochinillo Crujiente con Patatas y Pure de Zanahoria (suckling Pig with potatoes and mashed carrot), Ensalata de Queso (goat cheese salad) as well as a selection of other delicious tapas and mains. Their Paella de Bogavante (lobster paella) is a customer favourite, so don’t forget to try it while you’re there.

New Ubin Village Tampines

New Ubin

Ubin Seafood now has a new location in (you guessed it) Tampines, after closing down at Hillview Avenue, bringing with it customer favourites such as their Ubin Nasi Lemak and Charcoal Fish Head Steamboat, as well as other delicacies like Scottish “Live” Blue Mussels & Foie Gras Satay. Their selection of meat-based dishes (not just seafood, but pork, beef and more) is truly impressive and well worth a visit.

Originating in Amsterdam, Lombardo’s in Singapore is the only international franchise of this wildly popular burger joint. Home to the Most Expensive Burger in Singapore (Wagyu beef and gold-leaf covered for S$250; the profits of which go to The Children's Charities Association of Singapore), they also offer many other customers favourites, such as the Double Dutch XXL Burger (much more reasonably priced at S$19.99), El Chapo’s Cartel Burger at S$14.99) or the much-needed Hangover Burger for the same price. Their burgers – all original creations – differ in their unique ingredients but unite on truly spectacular taste.
