Best New Bars & New Restaurants in Singapore: January 2023
Aniba: new restaurant with Middle Eastern cuisine
If you’re a fan of North Mizon (one of our fave restos in town!) then listen up! The group’s newest restaurant Aniba has opened with Chef Meir Adoni at the helm, sharing his Israeli heritage with ‘a new interpretation of Middle Eastern cuisine with European culinary styles’. First, you’ll need to find the door (there’s a hidden entrance along Battery Road). Then look forward to tasting bites to start, from ‘Pani Puri’ ($26) to Hamachi & Watermelon Tartare ($38) followed by sharing dishes of Eggplant Carpaccio ($37), Beurre Blanc-Basted Halibut ($89), Oven-Roasted Grouper ($84) and a selection of house-baked bread (one of the best things at North Miznon is the complimentary focaccia so we reckon these will be good too) from Jerusalem bagel with Lima Beans ($32) to Traditional Yemenite Brioche with Crushed Tomatoes, Crème Fraiche and Za’atar. Look out for speakeasy vibe sets on Saturdays where a guest DJ spins Indie house, Nu disco and more.
Aniba, 6 Battery Road, Bonham Street, 05-03 Private lift from Riverfront Entrance, Singapore 049909
Yue Bai: modern Chinese restaurant
Yue Bai in Duxton is a new Chinese restaurant with intimate zen-like interiors and refined Chinese heritage dishes. What’s interesting here is that the food is rooted in TCM – made with ancient dietary principles known as shí liáo or ‘dietary therapy’. Chef Hongwei’s dishes offer familiar flavours from various Southern Chinese cuisines. Highlights of the a la carte menu include the nourishing and floral-tasting double-boiled Silkie Chicken Soup with Jasmine Flower, Dried Longan, and Wolfberries ($22); Seafood Deep-fried Granola Prawn ($36) a fun twist on the popular cereal prawn, but using house-made granola instead, and the clean-tasting Braised Baby Sharp Spinach with Yellow Millet and Wolfberries ($18). There are also set menus (served in individual portions), that are aligned with the Chinese calendar so you can feast on modern Chinese dishes while nourishing your body according to the seasons.
Yue Bai, 33 Duxton Rd Singapore 089497
Cenzo: new restaurant with Italian fare & Aussie vibes
New restaurant Cenzo on Club Street is helmed by chef Drew Nocente, the Australian chef behind the now-defunct Salted & Hung which revolved cooking with minimal wastage and an emphasis on in-house curing. Cenzo pulls some of the same ideas of minimal wastage, brining and curing but with a focus on Italian cuisine. Start with small plates of raw blue prawns with sourdough ($25), whipped ricotta, pears, and tomato ($16) or if you dare, thinly sliced veal tongue ($22). Expect handmade Pasta showcasing different shapes – gigli with rabbit bolognese ($24); caserecci with cheese and pepper ($22) and bucatini with spanner crab and smoked trout roe ($30). Hearty mains are designed for sharing so come hungry with some pals and tuck into braised lamb shank, brussels sprouts ($45), Australia T-bone (500g/$98) and slow roast porchetta ($48) with pineapple chilli salsa and celeriac slaw. The weekday three-course lunch looks mighty tempting at a very reasonable $35.
Cenzo, 81 Club St, Singapore, 069449
— Last month’s best new restaurants —
Famous French-Japanese chain Café Kitsuné is now in Singapore! This new restaurant brand has a bit of a cult following with 21 cafés around the world. Head here for single origin coffees sourced from Nicaragua, Guatamela and El Salvadore, which are roasted in Café Kitsuné’s roastery in Okayama, Japan – plus of course the famous fox-shaped shortbread in butter, sesame, chocolate, and matcha flavours ($4 each). There’s a small savoury menu of quiche and sandos like the chicken katsu sando ($15), or egg sando ($13) made with white bread or save yourself for the sweets like the Paris-Brest ($12), the matcha éclair ($11), plus Singapore specials like the chilli chocolate tart ($12).
Café Kitsuné, 13 Stamford Rd, #01-11, Singapore, 178905
Thirty9: new restaurant on Duxton Hill
The Swiss-Italian owners of popular Italian restaurant Latteria Mozzarella Bar have opened a new restaurant next door. Thirty9 opens onto the lovely cobblestone pedestrian paths of Duxton Hill. In the kitchen is Italian Chef, Erik Trozza whose Italian creations are inspired by the Mediterranean – think all-day tapas, hand-crafted pasta, house made bread and Napoli-style pizza. Highlights include the Spinach Ravioli ($32), and Gigli & Gamberi ($36) house-made flower shaped pasta with prawns, zucchini, tomato and garlic with a lightness from lemon and mint. For something unusual try the Broccoli pizza with spicy sauce, buffalo mozzarella, potato and olives ($25). Mains span Truffle Halibut ($38) to delicious NZ Lamb rack with a pistachio crust ($58) or charcoal grilled Beef T-Bone ($158 for 1kg). Sit alfresco looking onto Duxton Hill and sip on an Aperol Spritz or a bottle of Prosecco and enjoy the tapas bites until 7pm. But leave a little room for the beautiful desserts: Cannoli Siciliani with ricotta and chocolate $16 is chef’s kiss! Check them out for lunch and enjoy 30% off all a la carte dishes from noon to 2:30pm Mondays to Saturdays until 31 December.

Soi Social restaurant: new Thai restaurant
Soi Social is a new Thai restaurant within Festive Walk, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) headlined by Thai Celebrity Chef Ian Kittichai. The restaurant is all modern clean lines with an open kitchen to watch the chefs at work. Look forward to contemporary regional Thai dishes. We loved the moreish JEAB JEAB Chicken & Coconut Dip served with crackers ($18). Whet your appetite with little parcels of Chiang Mai duck sausage wrapped in wild betel leaf, ginger, peanuts and chili ($18), and delicious Grilled Giant Prawns with glazed choo chee sauce ($44). Other highlights include the meaty Baby Back curry glazed ribs ($24) with pineapple relish, Roasted Marinated Duck served with Thai red curry sauce, and a light yet flavoursome Tom Ka Min Barramundi ($32). Desserts are so pretty – Mango Sticky Rice ($15) sees blue rice thanks to butterfly pea flowers with mango mousse, and fresh mango, or there’s Thai Tea-ramisu ($12.50) with Thai tea-soaked lady fingers – all too pretty to eat but you’ll tuck in nonetheless and be happy you did!
Soi Social, Festive Walk, Resorts World Sentosa
Ahāra: new restaurant fusing Indian and Japanese
New restaurant Ahāra, helmed by chef owner Vikramjit Roy, fuses Indian and Japanese cuisines. The name, Ahāra, is derived from the Sanskrit word used in ancient Ayurvedic philosophy to define food as the root of all wellbeing. Chef Roy is one of India’s culinary maestros (he was also Japanese Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s protégé and has worked with Heston Blumenthal). We can’t wait to see how his cooking highlights the best of both Indian and Japanese cuisines. The Ahāra menu comprises a nine-course Explore ($248) set or the 16-course Expedition ($338).
Ahara, 20 Teck Lim Rd, Singapore, 088391

Ms Maria & Mr Singh: new restaurant by Gaggan
Ms Maria & Mr Singh the newest restaurant by chef Gaggan Anand and a local hospitality group may only have opened on 24 October 2022 but you probably can’t get a booking until late December! This casual offshoot of Gaggan retains some of the original hits from the Bangkok branch though this menu is more concise with 30 or so dishes featuring tapas and small plates starting from $12 that marries Indian flavours with some Mexican presentation (tacos, quesadillas and tamales). Now’s your chance to try some of the greatest Gaggan hits for a fraction of the price! Don’t miss the iconic Papdi Chat ($18), a yogurt explosion of flavours inspired by the popular Indian street food as well as Cold Curry Ceviche ($20) a raw dish that blends curry flavours with raw seafood. Munch on Spicy Crunchy Okra ($12), Pork Vindaloo Tacos ($17 for 2pcs) of pulled pork in a Goan-style masala with pineapple salsa, before moving on to mains of Gaggan’s Crab Curry ($32) – a signature dish of Chef Gaggan since 2016, and the Chicken Tikka Masala ($14). Overall a fun place to check out some of the much-talked-about Gaggan dishes without hurting your wallet. We also loved the fun decor (lead image) inspired by Jaipur and Oaxaca- colourful tiles, a vibrant bar and rattan light fixtures. Read our interview with Chef Gaggan Ananad on being a Dad, licking plates and encouraging his daughter to be a rebel here!

Red House Seafood Esplanade
Red House Seafood is a family-run business known for its Singapore Nanyang-style seafood. There’s now a bright and airy new outlet at Esplanade so you can pop in pre or post-theatre and tuck into their delicious Signature Chilli Crab and Lobster in Signature Creamy Custard Sauce or try the BBQ section unique to the Esplanade outlet with Chicken Satay and Thai Style BBQ Squid with Jelly Fish. We love that all imported seafood here is fully traceable (no live tanks on display so as to keep seafood better cared for). Don’t miss the delicate sweet Wild Pepper Alaskan King Crab (steamed then stewed in white pepper stock before being wok-tossed in butter, hua tiao wine and fish sauce) and the famous Spicy Seafood Combination Curry. The new restaurant is highlighted by Nanyang-style design elements and artwork with a private room for big groups as well as alfresco dining.
Red House Seafood Esplanade, 8 Raffles Ave., #01-14 / 16 Esplanade, Singapore 039802
New restaurant Sol & Ora: Mediterranean vibes
New restaurant by 1-Group Sol & Ora meaning Sun and Shore in Latin, is perched on the rooftop of The Outpost Hotel on Sentosa and aims to conjure Mediterranean vibes. It’s a lovely bright space thanks to the large windows looking down into the hotel pool (though you won’t necessarily get sky-high ocean views – for that head to the separate alfresco area at the Day Club 1-Altitude Coast beside the rooftop pool). The menu spans pasta and risotto, seafood dishes inspired by the French Riviera, Spanish tapas and Greek-style Josper grilled meats. Start off with La Bomba ($18) a plump breaded sphere made up of spiced minced chicken and potato and topped with aioli and a tomato passata sauce. Mains range from fish like the Seared Red Norwegian Salmon with Pesto and Grilled Fennel ($32) to meats like the Wood-fired Wagyu Flank Steak ($44). But we reckon the dish that really takes the shine is the Cavatelli Pasta with Squid, Crab, Amalfi Lemons and Red Onions. Sol & Ora also offers a weekend a la carte brunch with an add-on extra of two hours free-flow alcoholic beverages at $98++ per person, and they also do lunch, dinners and high tea on a two-tiered stand at $28++ per person, minimum two persons (Thursday to Sunday). Do note the policy of 12-year-olds and older.

Barood: sultry new bar serving Indian tapas
Barood (which translates to gunpowder) is the new ‘modern izakaya’ upstairs from sister restaurant Revolver (famed for its modern take on Indian cuisine centring around an open-fire grill). As you enter Barood you’ll first note the well-stocked bar squeezed into the corner, then the decks, then the long narrow room inspired by Moorish influences of 1960 Paris with its sultry sumptuous tones of red and its plush seats. Expect Indian contemporary tapas – a melange of flavours all heavily spiced. Think Goat Biryani Arancini ($26), Balls of Barood ($22) – chicken meatballs glazed with spicy Manchurian sauce, Lobster Taco, that if you were to try to share would be difficult (because there’s only one and it’s quite tasty) and my favourite – Mini Duck Pancakes ($22) two tiny crisp orbs of paniyaram topped with deliciously spiced pulled duck and tomato chutney. Portion sizes are small and delicate aside from the Malabar Sloppy Joe (which I recommend – a sandwich of pulled pork and spiced shallots – you’ll need to use your hands and yes, it gets messy). Cocktail wise sip on Tropical Skin ($24) made with clarified Plantation Original Dark or the Sweet Assassin ($24), made from Altos Reposado.
Barood, 56A Tras Street. Singapore 078977
Farrer Horse: new restaurant-bar
Farrer Horse is a regal restaurant bar in The Sultan Hotel that serves playful Asian dishes and equestrian-inspired cocktails. Its concept is built around the grandeur that defined Farrer Park Racecourse, Singapore’s first horse-racing venue in the 1840s, which shared the same space as The Sultan Hotel. Think plush velvet and leather sofas, cane chairs, and a grandiose bar highlighted in gold while the walls are adorned with illustrations of horses. The new restaurant on the first floor of this Kampong Glam shophouse serves Asian dishes such as DIY-style Nyonya Pie Tee with a filling of braised turnip, carrots and juicy prawns, Otah Ravioli, a re-imagination of the famous Burmese Salad Laphet and Chicken Kaffir Lime Curry served with traditional lace crepes. Sip on six novel, horse-themed cocktails ($22++) named after famous racehorses.
Farrer Horse, The Sultan Hotel, 101 Jalan Sultan #01-02/#02-00, Singapore 199002
Small Tables: new restaurant with Ipoh cuisine
Small Tables is a modern Ipoh-style cafe-restaurant on Orchard road offering Ipoh cuisine. This place has all the IG-feels – emerald green seats, brass lamps, and lots of natural light for taking pics! There is both indoor and outdoor seating at this new casual restaurant so you can people-watch as you sip on your Ipoh white coffee ($7.50) served with a custard-filled taiyaki on the side. Menu highlights include Malaysian dishes such as the Ipoh Curry Mee ($20) served dry or with soup, and chock-full of ingredients like poached chicken, caramelised char siu, crispy siu yoke, braised pig ears, pig skin, poached prawns, bean sprouts, and mint leaves. Other dishes to try: Ipoh Shredded Chicken Hor Fun ($16), Hakka Noodles and Cheese & Big Prawns ($24) – we hear this dish is enough for at least 2 pax. While on the pricier side, reviews have been solid.

Ka-EN Grill & Sushi Bar

The Nursery Cafe & Bar: new restaurant with IG vibes
It’s being touted as one of the most IG-worthy cafes of the moment. The Nursery Café & Bar (tucked away within commercial property Ark @ Gambas) is a gorgeous new, garden-themed restaurant with a nursery retail section next door. The decor is all rattan furniture and green plants. We love the dual personality trend happening at the moment – this spot goes from café by day to bar by night. The daytime menu features Classic Bacon & Egg Waffles, Very Berry Waffles with Gelato, a selection of pizzas, Granola Bowls and desserts, while the evening menu concentrates on bar bites – though this new spot is just in its soft launch phase so bear with them!
The Nursery Cafe & Bar, ARK @ Gambas, 7 Gambas Crescent, #01-16, Singapore 757087
Drunken Farmer @ Martin Road: new restaurant
Drunken Farmer opens its third restaurant at Martin Road! Common Man Coffee Roasters gets a split personality (such a clever use of space!) and while it remains the same cafe we love by day, by night it turns into Drunken Farmer with movie shorts projected onto the walls, low lighting and an overall funkier vibe. The menu offers an extensive list of curated natural wines to go with the gut-pleasing sourdough pizzas. Our faves are the simpler pizzas: the Margherita ($18) with its sourdough pizza base cooked till crisp (and a little on the charred side), and rich tomato sauce topped with creamy stracciatella. Other must-tries: Chicken Kaarage ($18) crispy chicken fried thighs served with tangy kimchi mayo and Prawns Sticks ($20) plus a host of salads, pizzas and desserts. Open Tuesdays to Sundays, 6pm to 11pm.
