New restaurants and cafés in Singapore
New Rasa Singapura
On a mission to showcase our cuisine on the world stage, New Rasa Singapura in Tanglin Post Office capitalises on its strategic location to feed both tourists and locals. The menu is still in the works as of press time, but expect local faves like chicken rice, fish head curry and roti john. Also, don’t be surprised to see disabled or mature servers here – it’s the restaurant’s way of giving back.
Customisable stews are the stars of this casual Korean eatery. The beef ($18-$32), pork ($16-$29) and spicy chicken ($16-$29) stews are available in two flavours – soya or four increasing levels of spiciness – and can be supplemented with add-ons ($2) like cheese or toppoki. Try the quirky DIY rice balls ($8), or pancakes like tomato cheese kimchi ($13) or potato ($12). Other tummy fillers include spicy noodles ($11), kimchi fried rice ($8) and spicy cheese fried rice ($9).
Having conquered the local realms of seafood and Cantonese food, Joyden Concepts now takes on Chinese classics at its third venture, Joyden Treasures. The chefs here inject their own twists to age-old family recipes. Waves of nostalgia abound with dishes like crispy lotus fragrant duck with petite lotus buns ($58), traditional salt-baked crab (market price) and steamed red grouper in homemade soya bean broth.
Singapore's cheekiest chef is at it again – Bjorn Shen's latest project is a 'ghetto-style' Thai eatery not- so-subtly called Bird Bird, where, true to its name, the humble chicken takes centre-stage. Shen doesn't muck around; the eatery goes balls deep into the unapologetically gung-ho foods of Northern Thailand. There are garlicky double-fried chicken, lemongrass-barbecued chicken, and what Shen dubs 'The Schwarzenegger of Som Tum': an over-the-top salad augmented with crispy chicken skin, salted eggs, fried anchovies and fish crackers. Cut all that richness with Thai milk tea slushies or beers. Dinner plates will run from $10-$35.
Ash and Elm
European restaurant Ash and Elm promises a culinary spectacle by means of its three unique kitchen contraptions. A charcuterie and cheese room sends out platters of cheeses ($24-$34), procured Europe-wide, and cured meats ($24-$60). A wood-fired oven churns out lasagna ($25), lobster thermidors ($78) and a variety of breads ($18-$26). And a charcoal grill fires up steaks ($56-$160) and pork chops ($39).
