With the easing of dine-out measures, it's now possible to head out and dine at the new restaurants, cafés and bars that have opened recently. Some joints have also refreshed menus or brought new chefs on board who offer creative ideas. This month, snack on jiggly, fluffy stacks from Flipper's Singapore, sample authentic crêpes and galettes at French Fold, and more.

Flipper's Singapore

Restaurants Pancakes and waffles Orchard

Hailing from Japan, Flipper’s is best known for its kiseki, or miracle pancakes – a term used to describe its almost unbelievable texture: soft and pillowy. And over at Ngee Ann City (doors open on November 6, Friday, 2pm), the 54-seater will serve a compact menu of just six pancakes – five sweet variants and one savoury option. Have it plain ($16.80) to sample the pancake in all its jiggly glory, or try a savoury eggs Benedict ($22.80) layered with ingredients of smoked salmon, and prawns with avocado.

Restaurants Tanjong Pagar

Sample an authentic slice of crêpe, or galette, at French Fold. The crêperie, located along Telok Ayer, is the latest venture by the Merci Marcel Group. Scandinavian fixtures make for a clean, modern interior, but for the best seats in the house, settle down under the skylight (perfect for photo-taking). Depending on when you visit, a selection of galettes, savoury pancakes typically made using buckwheat flour, and sweet crêpes, will be available. Organic ciders and exclusive bottles of wine can also be ordered.

For those who don’t already know, Miznon has won the hearts, and bellies, of foodies worldwide – with its inventive take on Israeli cuisine and bold, vibrant flavours.

Mr Bucket is an Asian-Focused chocolaterie that hopes to shine the spotlight on regional cacao beans. The space is inspired by Roald Dahl’s Charlie and Chocolate Factory, and offers a sweet line-up of chocolate bon bons, chocolate bars, drinking chocolate, and chocolate liqueur. The open kitchen also offers a peep into the creation process, where novel treats of salted egg yolk and mala bon bons are made.

Don’t let the plain-looking interior fool you, the menu at Daizu Cafe is filled with colour and excitement. It fuses Japanese flavours and Western cooking techniques, resulting in unique brunch plates of lemon miso eggs Benedict ($24), garlic butter sakura ebi pasta ($16), truffle mentaiko bruschetta ($14), and more. Choose to grab a seat at its alfresco deck, or climb up to the cosy second storey space – both offering prime picture-taking spots for that quintessential #flatlay shot.

Restaurants Japanese Raffles Place

Wagyu beef with a marbling grade of A5 – it's a meat ranking that signals the best of the best – is a prized cut that usually comes with a hefty price tag. But over at Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg, you’ll find patties made from this premium beef at wallet-friendly prices. Juicy, flavourful meat stacks are served as is, alongside rice and salad, or stuffed between buttered thick toast topped with omelette or cheese.

Tempura Tendon Tenya

Restaurants Japanese Orchard

The art of tempura-making typically takes years to master. But over at Tempura Tendon Tenya, one of Japan’s top tendon chains, the entire process has been condensed down to just two minutes by way of an automated conveyor belt-looking machine. Over 1,000 pieces can be cooked up in under an hour, resulting in highly affordable tendon bowls. At the chain’s first Singapore outpost, a set of its famed rice bowl, accompanied with soba or udon, can go for just under $12. The soft serve, made with creamy Hokkaido milk, goes for just $2 and is worth saving space for, too.
