From hearty Spanish and Mediterranean breakfasts to greasy soul food, we’ve put together a list of some of Singapore’s new-to-recent F&B openings. 

11 Hamilton

This cafe serves a hearty brunch in the heart of Jalan Besar. Feast on dishes that are inspired by traditional fare from other countries, such as the Mediterranean Shakshuka dish consisting of eggs baked in tomato stew with feta cheese and dukkah, or a Spanish spread of fried eggs, Jamon slices and potatoes.

Foodies looking for an exclusive gastronomical experience can opt for their western omakase service, which serves at least two. 

11 Hamilton Road, Jalan Besar
Opening hours: 9am-10pm

Matsukiya

The popular Japanese food chain Sushi Tei recently launched a new concept focusing on grilled meat and seafood, otherwise known as kushiyaki. Ingredient options include chicken thigh, gizzard, heart, asparagus, shitake, and pork cheek.

This is the brand’s first expansion in 25 years and offers new additions to the menu that include Ngo Heong, which is deep-fried meat pork and prawn roll, and Hee peow soup, which is a clear broth made with fish maw.

New at Picnic Food Park

Coyote Ugly

The Coyote Ugly bar known for its entertaining bar-top dancers has landed in Singapore’s Clarke Quay nightlife center. But few people know that its kitchen serves decent crispy fried chicken and juicy burgers with meat options like pulled pork. Not forgetting a wide variety of liquors and beers to keep you dancing all night long. Remember, only women are allowed to dance on the bars.

Route 65

If the sound of belacan potato cubes, crackling siew yoke, and har cheong gai wings makes you salivate, then we suggest you go down the road toward Route 65. The new bar-restaurant is serving modern dishes with flavors that will make you feel at home with the exception of live music.
