A place more suitable for a casual brunch as opposed to a swanky dinner date, Hub & Spoke is a cafe that’s probably not as renowned as its Keong Siak’s counterparts. In fact, it’s situated next to Changi Airport Terminal 2, which you can distinctly identify from its glasshouse exterior and elegant furnishings.

Here are all the new restaurants you need to dine at this May
It’s no doubt that comfort food takes the top spot in our hearts. Yet, when you’re craving something different, where will you head to?
This May, another mod-Japanese restaurant finds itself in the competitive Tanjong Pagar district, while a wildly popular tapas bar from Barcelona is opening the doors for its very first Asian outpost here. Other eats to look out for? Gio, an Italian joint, and a prawn-focused menu for crustacean fanatics over at Ebi Bar.
Read on for the full list.

There’s nothing like a plate of pasta that’ll warm our hearts and bellies in a jiffy. The Italian classic has become a staple for many in Singapore, and this month, we’re finding ourselves in Gio. The kitchen is helmed by Italian chef David Marchiori, who’ll be dishing out crowd favourites like the Rigatoni alla Carbonara, a deceivingly simple bowl of rigatoni tossed in guanciale (cured pork jowl), egg yolks, and Pecorino Romano cheese. Other plates to order? The Pizza Fritta, a deep-fried Naples speciality pizza with a generous amount of toppings encased in its dough.

If you can’t get enough of prawn noodles or just that rich umami flavour of prawn broth, then you need to make a trip down to Ebi Bar. The Singaporean noodle bar disguises itself as a ramen store, but once you look closer, you’ll realise its comforting bowls are a familiar sight to the eyes. Though four noodle dishes make up the bulk of the menu, its signature bowl is the one to look out for: the “Chao Da” or Charred Ebi Noodles is a hearty bowl of al-dente noodles that sit in a thick flavourful broth, served with a pair of perfectly charred prawns.
5 Koek Rd, #B1-21 Cuppage Plaza, Singapore 228796
It’s indisputably clear that Singaporeans love Japanese food. To add to the growing list of Modern Japanese restaurants in Singapore is IKO Restaurant & Bar, helmed by chef Jeremy Chiam of the now-defunct Le Binchotan. Apart from a mouthwatering menu of Robata-grilled bites, sake and Japanese-inspired cocktails, the restaurant ties it all together with neon lights and groovy music to get the night going. Notable items on the menu here include the UNI, a purple cauliflower pudding topped with buttery bafun uni, and the ANGUS SHORT RIBS, a kurozu black
vinegar marinated beef that’s first sous-vide then charred and served with port wine jus and garlic confit.
65 Neil Rd, Singapore 088897
We can’t wait for the opening of Tapas,24. Barcelona’s most popular tapas bar finds itself on almost every travel guide to Spain, and will be opening its first Asian outpost right here in Singapore. The original restaurant, for the uninitiated, is headed by chef Carles Abellán, a celebrated figure in Barcelona’s dining scene who once worked under chef Ferran Adria at the now-defunct El Bulli restaurant. Not much has been revealed about the menu, but we’re expecting favourites like the truffle “bikini” sandwiches and the chicken croquettes.
60 Robertson Quay, #01-04 The Quayside, Singapore 238252
Drunken Farmer, Singapore’s favourite travelling, natural wine bar, has found itself a permanent home along Stanley Street. Here, you can expect a mouthwatering sourdough-focused menu in the form of pizzas, fried chicken and waffles, each one better than the next. Read our full review here.

2. A Beautiful Day
A Beautiful Day is easily one of the most gorgeous cafes we’ve visited, with a pink corner that’s adorned in neon decals, seashell-shaped chairs, and a floral telephone booth.
In line with the pink theme of this cafe, be sure to get the Pink Sugar’s Bandung Souffle Pancake ($17.90). This comes dressed with rose-flavoured cream and dried rose petals, served on a pink mirrored tray. There’s also the Red Velvet Latte ($7+), a dark pink-coloured drink, if you’d like to take the pink obsession to the next level. Otherwise, the dish we enjoyed most was their Peri Peri Chicken Don ($10.90+), which highlights a bright, piquant peri peri sauce.

4. Tian Wang Desserts
If, like me, you’re a mahjong fanatic, head down to Tian Wang Desserts, a cafe that’s decked in mahjong tile wallpaper.
Here, you can expect an array of traditional Chinese desserts, of which we enjoyed their Yam Paste With Pumpkin & Gingko ($4.80), aka orh nee. If you’d like something refreshing, there’s the Soursop Popping ($4.80), with soursop fruit and syrup-filled boba pearls atop shaved ice. Fair warning, this can be a little too sweet for some.

Be transported to Japan at Taki Izakaya, with torii gates that line the entrance, and a cascading virtual waterfall to boot. Here, you can expect an array of alcoholic beverages, and scrumptious bar bites to go along with. We particularly enjoyed their Hanami ($16.80++), which sees kanpachi sashimi dressed in ponzu sauce and a sakura gel.
For a dose of carbs, consider the Spring Garden ($16.80++)—a wok hei-laden affair, comprising genmaicha-infused rice, fried with maitake mushrooms and carrots. Pair this with their Sloe Dancing ($33.80++), a fiery cocktail that’s made with two types of gin, sakura syrup, lime juice, Prosecco, and then finished with chilli flakes.

11. Tiong Bahru Bakery The Foothills
Image credit: Tiong Bahru Bakery
Tiong Bahru Bakery has become a household name for quality French pastries, growing from strength to strength since their flagship in Eng Hoon Street. Continuing that reign is the latest Tiong Bahru Bakery outlet in The Foothills, at Fort Canning Park, just a couple of minutes away from Fort Canning MRT Station. Given that the space used to be an old swimming complex, the outlet is themed with swimming decor, albeit in TBB’s signature green-and-white colour palette.
For those of you going “another TBB outlet?”, let us take you through the differences. Yes, the standalone bakery will have all the brand’s best-selling favourites, but they also stock some exclusives. These include the Sourdough Croissant ($4.80), where denser sourdough meets the flaky whorls of a croissant and finished with a Nutella-esque hazelnut cremeux. On the beverage front, quench your thirst with the Sourdough Kvass ($5), available in thyme or mint. Like a thicker version of kombucha, this sourdough-based beverage is quite the quencher.
Address: The Foothills, #01-05 70 River Valley Road, Singapore 179037
Opening hours: Daily 7:30am to 7pm
12. SIRI HOUSE
Step away from the bustle of town’s mainstream brunch locations and head over to SIRI HOUSE, with their recently launched Weekend Brunch menu that is worth getting up on a weekend for. Asian fusion is the stronghold of the menu, with both small and large plates to share with your loved ones.
We loved the Arancini ($21++), a twist on the Italian staple with flavours that harkened to takoyaki, from the bits of octopus within each deep-fried ball, to the dashi-soaked Japanese rice used. For something more substantial, get the Katsu Burger ($29++), where a chunky slab of Iberico pork ribeye is dressed with piquant smoked chilli and nori mayo, then finished with pickled cabbage in between lightly toasted buns. Otherwise, their Spring Toast ($23++) is as pretty as a picture, and a level-up from typical toast, with goat’s cheese, an onsen egg, and a well-seasoned mushroom medley up top.
To sweeten the deal, SIRI HOUSE has also launched an ultra-wallet friendly $12++ cocktail menu. Perk yourself up with spritzes like the Summertime Madness, an Aperol Spritz lightened by calamansi, or their Caffeinated Martini, made with dark rum, and a coffee liqueur crafted from Kopi O Kosong steeped for 10 hours.
Address: Blk 8D, #01-02, Dempsey Road, Singapore 249672

13. No Horse Run
Here’s a new late-night dessert spot for Northies—No Horse Run, cheekily named after the Hokkien phrase, bo beh zao. You can expect a slew of localised gelato flavours at this cafe, of which we enjoyed the Muah Chee ($5), speckled with crunchy peanut bits. Pair this with the Pandan Gula Melaka Waffles ($6.50) for a truly Singaporean twist on your dessert. Every order of waffles also comes with one of their four house-made sauces, that include Classic Maple Syrup, Childhood Milo, House-Made Jam, and Caramelised Cookie.

Meanwhile, if you’re a sushi purist, there’s a Premium Sushi Moriwase Set ($43.80++) available, packed with fatty tuna, yellowtail, uni, scallop, and other oceanic goodies.
What’s more, the restaurant now sees a spanking new speciality cafe, that features a selection of teas imported directly from Japan, as well as bites to go along with. We enjoyed the experience of grilling our own Yaki Dango ($9.80++), aka rice dumplings. These are glazed with sweet soy sauce, then served with red beans and chestnut paste. Sweet-toothed readers will also enjoy the Zensai Parfait ($9.80++), layered with vanilla ice cream, rice dumplings, salted rice crackers, strawberry syrup, and strawberries.

90,000 The World’s Six Best Bars According to The World’s 50 Best Bars
Nightlife is one of the main reasons to travel to Singapore. And, of course, first of all, you need to go to six famous bars that were included in The World’s 50 best Bars 2019 list.
Atlas has made a real breakthrough since it opened two years ago. Here you can find almost the best gin collection in the world: more than 1300 labels. The bar is located in one of the most expensive office buildings in Singapore, reminiscent of the Gotham City buildings from the Batman movies. The main decoration of the institution is the grandiose bar counter. The luxurious art deco interior evokes the Great Gatsby era. In addition to gin and an impressive selection of champagnes, Atlas offers a very interesting cocktail menu.It was recently compiled by star bartender Jesse Vida.
This establishment is located in the Regent Singapore Hotel. But just don’t think that a hotel bar is something boring and secondary. This rule does not apply to Manhattan Bar. His visit is included in the compulsory program of all people experienced in mixology. The fact that the world’s first hotel rickhouse (a special room for curing barrels) is located here already speaks of the uniqueness of the place.It is no coincidence that Manhattan Bar took third place in the World’s 50 Best Bars 2018 and second in the Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2019 list.
Native is a project by award-winning bartender Vijay Mudaliar. He specializes in creating cocktails made exclusively from local ingredients. Some of them are grown on a mini-farm equipped at the institution. Those who are not afraid of experiments will love the bar.The cocktail list is regularly updated here, and in each of the versions you can find drinks with, to put it mildly, non-trivial components. Well, for example: rum, sugar cane, tapioca, sour cream and … an ant. Or jackfruit rum, laxa leaves and … distilled goat’s milk.
Jigger & Pony
One of the first cocktail bars in Singapore, named after a two-cone measuring cup for alcoholic beverages. Since the end of 2018, he has settled at the Amara Hotel, receiving a redesigned two-space design.One of them is a cozy mezzanine for privacy, the second is a crowded room with a long counter for dating and communication. The menu has also changed, with 27 fresh variations on the theme of classic and vintage cocktails. What remains the same is the signature hospitality, friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The main intrigue is that the move resulted in a triumphant rise of the establishment in various ratings. Incredibly, in the Asian list, the bar took 9th place at once, and in the world it became 29th among the 50 best!
The Old Man
Singapore The Old man offers impeccable service even during the busiest hours of the night.The famous L-shaped bar counter invites visitors to lively conversation. The spacious lounge area can easily accommodate large companies. The less crowded dining area is more intimate and quiet. The bar is run by a true veteran of the Asian bar scene, Andrew Yap. The establishment has no signs or signs, so look for a door with a pineapple-shaped lamp hanging over it.
This small bar, located in a basement on the corner of a bustling street, has a cocktail menu that changes every three months.At the same time, alcohol is deliberately not indicated in it – only all sorts of options for additions. Visitors have to completely rely on the choice of the bartender. He will select and mix the ingredients at his discretion, after asking about preferences.
Details can be found on the website www.visitsingapore.com.

Singapore Airlines Chef Shermai Lee is in charge of food.
The company is considering the possibility of extending the work of the aircraft-restaurants. So many people have signed up on the waiting list that many of them will not be able to get on board either on the first or on the second day.
The Singapore carrier’s pop-up restaurants are another example of how airlines are struggling to survive during a pandemic when international air traffic virtually ceased. Before that, there were “flights to nowhere”, when passengers just got on a plane that does not fly anywhere. Then in Taiwan they came up with another scheme – there the plane still took off from the airport, flew over the South Korean resort of Jeju and returned back.
Seats for such flights ended in record time.
For the second quarter of 2020, Singapore Airlines reported record losses of $ 827 million. The company plans to cut 20% of its employees.
90,000 Singapore: A Land of Opportunity
Whatever you aspire to, you can do it in Singapore. If you are looking for a new gastronomic experience, then cosmopolitan Singapore with its love of food is the best travel destination.
It is food in multinational Singapore that is considered the most important element of national identity, and Singaporeans themselves consider food their “national obsession”, what unites them in preferences and communication, regardless of views and religious affiliation. This love of food is clearly evidenced by the abundance of street stalls and stalls, food courts, restaurants, bars and cafes, generously scattered over a small area of the country. You don’t have to walk far to sample the hundreds of dishes available, everything is within walking distance wherever you are – from cheap eateries to gourmet restaurants.
That is why Singapore is considered the gastronomic capital of Asia, and the country’s authorities are doing everything possible to ensure that Singaporean cuisine serves as a full-fledged tourist attraction and bait for travelers, popularizing food with gastronomic festivals and supporting the opening of various catering outlets.
Singapore is often called the gastronomic capital of Asia, a special attraction for gourmet travelers. It is here that the ideas of centuries-old culinary traditions of thousands of chefs from all over the world are embodied.
The entire range of world cuisines is presented in various establishments of Singapore: from traditional European to some rare Peranakan – the food of Chinese immigrants who settled in the south of Indochina at the end of the 15th century. Peranakans are descendants of Chinese-Malay marriages, living in Singapore and Malaysia. Their cuisine, more commonly known as nonya cuisine, is an example of sophistication. Exotic ingredients make Peranakan dishes difficult to replicate in an urban setting.That is why the world’s first Peranakan restaurant to receive a Michelin star is not so much a sign of gastronomic recognition for the menu as a clear example of the diligence and diligence of its chef, 33-year-old Malcolm Lee.
From childhood, observing his mother’s troubles in the kitchen, he decided to devote himself to cooking, believing that if you really really love something and believe in it, then you just need to try. And in this the hero of our story has succeeded thoroughly.
Malcolm realized that office work was not suitable for him, after graduating from the Faculty of Business Administration at the university.Then he decided to take a chance and start a new life, becoming a chef. Malcolm put everything he had on the line: family, friends, and even relationships. But the risks have more than paid off. Having started his culinary career as a specialty chef, Malcolm then received a Miele-Guide Culinary Scholarship and graduated from the At-Sunrice GlobalChef Culinary Academy.
From his career as a chef, Malcolm has earned his Candlenut restaurant the Michelin Red Guide’s Picky Restaurant Criticism Award and the right to embroider a small star on his chef’s coat.
Malcolm Lee is passionate about his culinary heritage and tries to renew it with modern methods. He tries to make dishes lighter and more modern. It is important for him that, for example, the texture is felt in the fish, and the sauces are more elegant, but at the same time the richness of tastes and aromas is preserved.
Malcolm compares the kitchen to a war zone – they have in common chaos, stress, pressure and the importance of teamwork. And he is just delighted with it! “I love all this cuts, burns, mutual support,” he shares.The kitchen is his home. But it’s not just the atmosphere and adrenaline. For the chef, Peranakan dishes are not just food, they bring people together, create connections and bring happiness to people. “Food is love, and I hope the restaurant customers feel it,” he says.
Malcolm personally purchases products for the kitchen from the market. He still visits his old acquaintances at the Tekka Market, where he buys fresh seafood and other ingredients. In fact, the talented chef is inspired by the market itself, the historic districts and Singapore in general.He loves to wander around the city in search of new culinary ideas. “My approach to food is to keep trying to make something even better while maintaining the traditional flavors and style of the dishes.”
He also draws visual inspiration for his culinary masterpieces from the streets of Singapore. “I love the shop houses in Katong and Joo Chiat, with lots of little details on the walls and stairs. They help me understand what Peranakan food should be like, ”says Malcolm.
In the future, Malcolm plans to open a Candlenut bistro with a shop at Changi Airport so that tourists and locals can take away a piece of Singaporean culture and share it with others.“I am confident that such a unique offer will be in demand. We should be proud of our culinary culture and be happy to share it, ”says Malcolm.
In Singapore, a true gourmet paradise, culinary excellence is a challenge. But Malcolm Lee did it. So, if you are in those parts, take a look at Candlenut. Recommend.

Chinatown in Singapore is the most pleasant Chinatown I’ve been to.Here, no one tries at every step to aggressively sell all sorts of nonsense, and you can leisurely stroll along the shopping arcade, carefully examining porcelain cups and all sorts of tinctures with roots. The atmosphere here is the most Singaporean – quite calm and, one might say, even cute. From time to time, however, there are gloomy sellers who do not allow photographing their special goods and are not very friendly. But this does not affect the general situation at all.
The streets of Singapore’s Chinatown are hung with Chinese lanterns, everything is clean and well-groomed.One gets the impression that the area was specially prepared for some kind of holiday. But no. It’s just Singapore.
Perhaps it is even too calm and clean here. Not at all Chayotown. There is a lack of some bustle and loud talkative Chinese. True, there is still something interesting here – the Chinatown Complex Market. In this large Chinese market, things are not so perfect anymore, and the environment is more in line with the idea of China. And most importantly, this is where the cool cheap weird food is concentrated.
Durian pancakes, rice drinks, lotuses and giant steamed mushroom buns.
The price for a portion of almost any dish averages $ 1.5-3. Perhaps this is where the most budget-friendly food in all of Singapore is sold. Or at least in the city center.
I spent only 3 days in Singapore, but each of them did not go without a snack in Chinatown. Perhaps this is one of the most picturesque places in Singapore that I have been able to visit.
90,000 Singapore Airlines converted some planes into pop-up restaurants. All seats were booked in 30 minutes
Photo: Singapore Airlines
Restrictions due to the pandemic and border closures have affected the decline in the number of flights in the world. In the United States alone, the four largest airlines, including American Airlines, lost $ 10 billion in the second quarter.In order to somehow work in the current conditions, some airlines are introducing new formats and ideas. For example, Singapore Airlines, which dropped 99.5 percent in the first quarter, converted two of its planes into pop-up restaurants for several weekends in October and November. The offer caused a stir among customers – tables were booked within 30 minutes.
The Singapore Airlines flight experience is legendary, writes Fast Company. Travel + Leisure has ranked this airline as the best in the world for 25 years in a row.World-class chefs prepare meals for passengers. Therefore, airline fans are willing to pay for a gourmet meal, especially now that they are feeling nostalgic for air travel.
Dinner will take place by plane at Singapore Changi Airport. As with flights, passengers can choose tables in a specific class. For example, the cost of food in first class is $ 474, in economy – $ 39. Guests will be seated in only half of the 471 seats to keep their distance, the airline said.
This is not the first time Singapore Airlines is experimenting with new catering channels. At the end of September, the company launched food boxes for sale, which will allow delivering food from different classes at a cost of $ 308 to $ 479 to your home. The service comes with cooking instructions and an individual playlist. In addition, you can buy onboard dishes from Wedgwood or Lalique, and even hire a chef who can prepare and serve meals at home.
While the Singapore Airlines dinner idea won’t cover its $ 825 loss in half a year, it makes sense for the company to stay in touch with its customers during this period of reduced travel and encourage them to fly again when it’s safe enough.Currently, only 32 aircraft out of 220 are in operation.
Other airlines are also trying to find ways to make money in the absence of flights. For example, catering companies Tamam Kitchen in Israel and Gate Gourmet in Australia have begun offering home delivery. Eva Air and Quantas have offered “flights to nowhere” – passengers pay for a flight that takes a scenic route but ends up at the same airport from which they departed. Clients welcomed this initiative, but climate activists argue that such “empty” flights are harmful to the atmosphere.
