Mooi Patisserie — The Quaint Hidden Gem with Pistachio Tarts & Croissants by A Michelin-Starred Pastry Chef 

Unsurprisingly, we’ve seen a growing stable of chefs venturing out into their own cafes and F&B operations of late. Singapore’s pastries and cafe scenes are thriving after all, maybe growing even more robustly than the restaurant ecosystem. Inserting itself into the ranks of personally headed projects is Mooi Patisserie by Chef Gail Ho, a pastry chef who’d previously earned a Michelin star at Meta.

geek out on an extensive curation loaded into Vin Geek’s Ingenious Wine Dispenser

There’s an image that has been attributed to wine bars over the decades. It’s one that’s stuffy, it’s inaccessible, and it’s opulent. But there’s currently a renewed struggle to escape from that culture as more and more new concepts like Vin Geek are joining in to fight the good fight.

Robust Fusion Flavours Enjoyed with Raw Kitchen Bar’s Placid Bali Vibes

As the dreary storm clouds cleared up, frail wisps of golden hour sunlight threaded through the lush green foliage before bouncing onto a clutter of tables sprawled out along the viridescent ground-floor perimeter of a lone Kallang building, where Raw Kitchen Bar operates.

Uplifting Festive Flavours & a stunning Wagyu Steak at Gary’s Restaurant 

I maintain that the most interesting restaurant set-ups can only be found at the most arbitrary of locales which elude the public with a certain twinge of inaccessibility — after all, real estate is a disproportionately exorbitant luxury in Singapore’s F&B scene. But the community always finds a way to congregate in cosy little alcoves like at Rochester, where Gary’s Restaurant is located.

Singapore’s Sourdough Donut Maestro Sourbombe Bakery opens a new dine-in Cafe at Jewel Changi

The narrative of Singapore’s F&B’s previous two years had been noticeably dominated by home-based concepts and celebrity chef debuts. Even after reaching what can only be described as a critical mass of trendy new openings though, there’s still no cafe in Singapore that embodies the dining paradigm as profoundly as Sourbombe Bakery.

La Bottega Enoteca Showcases immaculate Pizza dough making — Both Pillowy and Crispy

As simple as Pizza sounds, pizza making is undoubtedly a finesse decided by the finest margins through control of the gluten and taming of the woodfire. It’s a kind of exquisite artistry that, despite its humble roots, Singapore has a shortage of — but if discerning gourmands have a favourite establishment to flock to for pizza, it has to be La Bottega Enoteca.

Thirty Six Brewlab & Smokehouse welcomes Christmas with a Jovial Sunday Roast Special

Sunday roasts are perhaps one of the most under-represented gems of British cuisine in Singapore. While fish & chips are getting plenty of coverage, only a handful of swanky restaurants indulge in the heartiness of a Sunday roast. Getting in the mood for the festivities, Thirty Sixty Brewlab & Smokehouse are inviting guests to feast over the Christmas weekend with a Sunday roast special on 24 Dec 2022 and 25 Dec 2022.

Simple Minimalism and Dainty Cakes Make Pomme one of Singapore’s Chicest new Cafes

Boat Quay is a rather curious place that is bustling with lunch hour spots and after-work drink spots but the cafe ecosystem here is rather weak, as cafes come and go fleetingly — even the local sandwich titans had some trouble with keeping their Cubano shop Onda afloat for long. Though a few cafes have seemingly taken root in the area, one of the promising ones is the new Pomme.
