The Hainan Story, a 5-in-1 multi-brand Hainanese restaurant is now open at Hillion Mall. In tribute of the early Hainanese settlers who arrived on Singapore’s shores shortly after the British, The Hainan Story wants to preserve Singapore’s colourful food heritage while offering diners a wide range of delicious, traditional favourites.
Often affiliated with the F&B industry, the Hainanese community is widely known to brew the best coffee in town while cooking up a storm in the kitchen. At The Hainan Story, this legacy continues. Through its 5 different concepts, The Hainan Story features the work of numerous Hainanese chefs — both famous and up-and-coming — who work closely together to create comforting, nostalgia-invoking meals.
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and at The Hainan Story, they think the same. There, you’ll find old-school breakfasts done just right, with traditional Hainanese toasts that boast thick, fluffy buns with a pillowy-soft centre and wonderfully crisp crust — unlike the thin, flat toasts commonly found elsewhere.
Much effort was put into the décor of The Hainan Story to replicate the look and feel of traditional shophouses located at the old Hainanese enclave. The Hainanese enclave consisted of Seah Street (Hainan First Street), Purvis Street (Hainan Second Street) and Middle Road (Hainan Third Street).
From the red wooden arched window louvres to wired pendant lamps and vibrantly coloured signages, design elements are evocative of that era.

Offering a completely different experience from its Esplanade branch, the new Barossa Bar & Grill at VivoCity shines the spotlight on dry-aged Australian beef and Josper oven-grilled lamb, poultry and seafood dishes. The Australian-inspired restaurant serves only the highest quality and carefully sourced meats from Australian farms.
Barossa specially curates its selection of Australian beef from four renowned brands. The Bass Strait range showcases 100% grass-fed beef — the cattle are raised on natural rye grasses and clover. Wanderer’s free-range beef offerings come from cattle that roam freely in paddocks and feed on barley. Josdale is an Australian pioneer of 100% grass-fed black angus; its cattle roam the verdant pastures of Gippsland in Victoria and are antibiotic- and hormones-free. Finally, Carrara’s array of multi-award winning wagyu is known for its superb texture and intense flavour, which are derived from first-class genetics and grain-fed for a minimum of 350-400 days. Their cattle is traced from birth to ensure biosecurity and meat safety while providing the best animal welfare.
In addition, the restaurant boasts its own dry-ageing fridge, the Dry Ager®. The bigger cuts such as porterhouse and tomahawk are aged for 50 days while the smaller cuts such as tenderloin and striploin are aged around 25 days. The natural enzymes in the meat break down some of the collagen, resulting in a tenderer texture. During the dry-ageing process, the beef also loses a percentage of its total weight due to water evaporation, which causes the flavour to become more concentrated and intense.
The restaurant overlooks the tranquil water leading to Sentosa Island, making it an ideal address for sedate sessions replete with tête-à-têtes. Perfect for casual gatherings, its special al-fresco menu features tapas from just S$6, cheese platters (from S$28) and pizzas (from S$24). Kick back and relax with offerings such as Japan Sakoshi Bay Oyster ½ Dozen, Chipotle Buffalo Wings, Truffle Fries and Char-grilled Prawns with Spicy Citrus Dressing.
Barossa carries about 10 wine labels from Australia as well as a wide selection of white and red wines from Italy, New Zealand, France and South Africa. Classic cocktails such as mojito, pina colada, amaretto sunrise and tequila sunrise are available here as well.
Restaurant Euphoria by Chef Jason Tan is an extraordinary fine dining destination where joyful and imprinting memories are forged through its Gastro-Botanica journey.
In 2014, Jason created Gastro-Botanica, an original culinary philosophy showcasing carefully sourced and prepared premium vegetables, meats and seafood, where prominence and elaboration are given to botanical elements of vegetables, tubers, herbs, spices, and fruits.
Through it, Jason found the relentless impetus to innovate, push boundaries, and reimagine existing conventions. While in Restaurant Euphoria, Gastro-Botanica illuminates its every aspect, from concept and design to cuisine and tableware.
Throughout his career and to satiate his curious mind and natural wanderlust, Jason travelled widely, eating and exploring the foods of the world. He combined these insights with his Asian roots and a deepening passion for botanicals to create Gastro-Botanica in 2014. Jason raised Gastro-Botanica to an exquisiteness that saw him lauded as the first and only Singaporean chef to receive both a ranking on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants from 2016 to 2020, and one Michelin star from 2016 to 2019, during his tenure as Chef and Co-owner of the Corner House.
Served to dignitaries such as Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, China’s President Xi Jinping, the President of South Korea, the Prime Minister of Israel, the Sultan of Brunei and the Prince of Johor, Gastro-Botanica became synonymous with Jason as a trailblazing chef.
Intent on taking Gastro-Botanica further, Jason elevated its practices and principles, creating a cuisine that gave even more prominence and significance to botanical elements; and in the process stretching the limits of French gastronomy. He calls it Gastro-Botanica 2.0, and made it the raison d’etre for Restaurant Euphoria.

Lights, camera, action! Hollywood’s favourite burger joint, Fatburger is thrilled to announce the launch of its first flagship lifestyle concept store that brings great food together with an unforgettable dining experience right here in Singapore at Orchard Cineleisure. It features a unique stadium-like design with bold wall murals inspired by Los Angeles, making it the first-ever Fatburger in the world to have such an interior.
Pair it with Fatburger’s full menu of fresh burgers — including farm-to-table chicken that’s never frozen, and freshly baked artisanal buns — and you have everything that you’ll need to make you feel like you’re in the City of Angels.
At Fatburger’s Cineleisure outpost, you can expect to see neon signboards and striking street murals that look like they came straight from the streets of LA: essentially, it has all the makings of an endlessly-Instagrammable hotspot.
The highlight and favourite spot in the new restaurant is easily the elevated stadium seats that are situated on either end of the restaurant. The unique stadium-style design of the restaurant is the first in the world, and makes for a great place to chill out and enjoy Fatburger’s fresh all-American goodies.
Grab a burger, kick back with a cold soda, and watch the world pass you by on the elevated stadium seats — and don’t forget to take a pic for the ‘gram while you’re at it.

Expect only quality offerings at Fatburger that are free from artificial flavourings. Fatburger takes pride on using only fresh, never frozen, farm-to-table chicken, and locally-sourced artisanal breads, which are baked fresh daily.
Lip-smacking burgers and fries aren’t the only thing you’ll find at Fatburger. Thanks to the addition of Buffalo's Express — a co-brand that shares the limelight with Fatburger — diners can treat themselves to a mouth-watering assortment of buffalo wings, all accompanied by the brand’s 8 signature sauces. For a classic taste, opt for the cajun sauce, and if you’re feeling particularly brave, you can try their self-explanatory Death Valley hot sauce that's tolerable only by true spice-fiends.

This month, SPRMRKT joins a new neighbourhood – the verdant and idyllic Dempsey Hill, with an inspired space and a new cultural-culinary experience through dining, retail and art.
2012 saw the beginnings of the lifestyle F&B brand in a shophouse on McCallum Street favoured by city dwellers as an oasis to the hustle and bustle of CBD life. Eight years later, SPRMRKT has grown into a familiar neighbourhood name; from the bustling central business district to the riverside respite of Robertson Quay, quaint Cluny residential area, and now, at the heart of the Dempsey Hill lifestyle enclave.
Just like its name without the vowels, SPRMRKT is about simplicity, focusing on what matters. At the heart of it is responsibly sourced ingredients prepared meticulously to let their natural flavours shine; warm, friendly service centred on the diner; a showcase of carefully sourced gourmet brands from Singapore and around the region with the aim of giving back; and thoughtful collaborations that support young artists and creatives.
Another reason to drop by SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill is the house-baked goods fresh from the oven, enticing with their lingering aroma. The range varies daily and includes breads, pastries and tea cakes, as well as must-haves like the Olive Oil Cake and Chiffon Cake in flavours of lychee, strawberry and pandan.
Exclusive on the weekends, listen out for the ice cream man ringing the bell as SPRMRKT at Dempsey Hill brings a little nostalgia to the neighbourhood with the Durian Semifreddo Wafer Sandwich. The frozen semifreddo is house made with luscious D24 durian pulp cocooned in a crispy wafer with vanilla and caramel notes; great for on the go or at the breezy veranda.
Over the past eight months, Singapore’s foremost gluten-free bistro The Butcher’s Wife has played host to Drunken Farmer, a travelling natural wine bar and consultancy belonging to the same Spa Esprit Group portfolio of F&B brands. Guided by Drunken Farmer’s natural wine expert Eduardo Bayo, The Butcher’s Wife then revamped their wine programme to focus solely on wines that are organic, biodynamic, natural, and sustainable. Since making the switch to champion a 100 per cent gluten-free lifestyle in 2017, this natural wine programme compliments one of the most exciting chapters the Tiong Bahru backstreet bistro will soon embark on: a shockingly simple approach to gluten-free dining by new Brazilian head chef Mariana Campos that favours all manner of funk, is great for the gut and delicious to the very end.
To cater to diners and regulars who cannot get enough of these natural wine offerings and a pandemic that’s changing the way we eat and drink, The Butcher’s Wife has launched Singapore’s very first brick and mortar natural wine retail space. Curated by Drunken Farmer, retail offerings include popular labels that diners have discovered while dining at The Butcher’s Wife, including its monthly 5 Bites 5 Wines event organised in collaboration with Drunken Farmer and many more surprises, at to-go prices.
Following the kick-off of the natural wine retail format at The Butcher’s Wife, the retail to-go concept might be replicated to cater for the neighbourhoods the other SEG F&B outlets are located in, so wine lovers can rejoice in the fact that a bottle of natural wine is always in close reach.
Lumo is a new cocktail bar and restaurant unlike any other. Because its genesis is unlike any other, where Light is at the centre of its being: inspiring and driving it.
Light, a substance so banal yet ineffable, fills the 70-seat bar and restaurant in Boat Quay: suffusing it with its qualities, its values, its symbolism. ‘Lumo’ is a word in Esperanto, an artificial language, that means ‘light.’ Picking it for a name underscores one of LUMO’s defining principles – community – since Esperanto was created in 1887 as a means to unify peoples across the world through a universal lexicon.
Lumo comprises two distinct spaces – a bar and an open kitchen. A cool Scandinavian theme unifies the interior, featuring a muted palette and wood, leather and warm lighting to evoke a the feel of nicely furnished house party. Seating is informal and ‘democratic’ with high stools, counter seats, booths and dining settings inviting lots of social interaction. For instance, head over to the high tables set at a height of 95cm – ideal for both seated meals and for diners who prefer to stand and mingle. Each space also has its own ambience in sync with different playlists, underscoring the overarching message of Lumo – that any person can find his or her place on this earth, to exist and flourish under the same light.
The Modern European dishes of Head Chef Martin Wong and his team showcase key ingredients with finesse, and present them in a familiar and approachable manner. Just as light can both unify and contrast, dichotomies are explored in order to achieve a creative balance. For instance, a combination of wood-fire cooking and modern methods is applied. So are other traditional methods such as pickling, fermentation, ageing and brining, which are coupled with cutting edge technology such as Centrifuge and Thermomix to intensify flavours and achieve complexity.
The recipes are designed to complement the cocktails, with flavours supporting the drinks as diners progress from low-ABV to higher ABV’s as the night rolls along. And in line with Lumo’s inclusiveness, the cuisine is planned with an eye to dietary requirements and preferences.
Head Bartender Josiah Chee and his team eschew any fixed ‘style’, instead harmonising the Japanese and American approach to mixology to deliver a coherent experience that takes in social interaction, recommendations, showmanship and presentation. Concoctions stem from traditional recipes coupled with evolving trends, and are inspired by the things people eat and drink every day – the ‘fundamentals of life.’
The launch menu focuses on Breakfast, a daily staple. The cocktails are conceptualised around the prismatic nature of light, represented by 7 categories corresponding to the 7 constituent colours of natural light. Ranging from low to high ABV, each category is based on a study of ingredients – Brew, Milk, Fruit, ABC, ImpossibleTM Salad, Toast, Treat – distilled through culinary methods to be presented in their purest form.
Cure Concepts unveils Catfish, a brand new contemporary Fish Grill & Raw Bar set to open it’s doors in April 2020 along Gemmill Lane.

The Blue Ginger has come a long way and has finally established their 2nd branch at the newly-revamped Great World City.
The inspiration behind their starting “blue ginger” cannot be fully explained without first sharing with you the aspects of peranakan culture. As a peranakan, the signature of a well-bred “Nonya”, or Straits Chinese lady, was how well one could cook. It was often the matriarch of the family who would bring the entire family together, over a mouth-watering spread of spicy and aromatic dishes.
Their journey of rediscovery was prompted by the fond memories of hearty feasts at grandma’s. The Blue Ginger was created simply through their desire to share their unique culture with others.
Today, the restaurant is run by a team of people who are passionate towards this end.

Some people dream of castles and others dream of white picket fences. Food brother Bjorn Shen dreams of a small room where he can unleash all his wildest ideas. In late 2019, that dream became reality – and from 2020, he lets 4 persons into the room to play with him: Small’s officially opens to the public in February 2020.
Small’s is a tiny room that's attached to Bjorn Shen’s flagship restaurant, Artichoke. Originally his office, it was converted into a studio for culinary research and development; at heart, it’s Bjorn’s man cave. At Small's, he experiments with things and ideas that get called oddball by some, genius by others. Now it’s open to public three days a week as an omakase counter where he can show and tell his guests what he’s been up to.
Small’s is as personal as it gets. If – as restaurateurs are won't to say – Artichoke is Bjorn’s ‘house’, then Small’s is his man-cave.
Everything in Small’s has been personally handled by Bjorn, right down to the installation of the long pendant light that glows white and purple; and the ever- changing playlist that reflects his mood and thoughts. His cheeky sense of humour is evident from ceiling to floor – at the top of the walls, multiple Borats give cheery thumbs-ups to guests.
He’s even put some of his most cherished objects and memories to “work”. Tableware includes ceramic plates handmade by his sister-in-law, and flatware he inherited from his grandparents; and a small fish tank recalls his youth where he was put to work in a little pet shop by his father.
In short, eating at Small’s is a private dining experience – one on four, face to face – that Bjorn has never been able to offer before.
Bjorn is chef-owner of Artichoke, and author of the Artichoke cookbook. Notorious for his rebellious personality and outlandish style of cooking, Bjorn has earned significant industry recognition over the years. Outside of starting food brands Artichoke, Bird Bird and Neh Neh Pop, Bjorn wrote a monthly column titled ‘Bjorn Says’ for Time Out magazine, lectured at the Culinary Institute of America, and actively consults on menus for restaurant openings. Industry accolades that he has accumulated over the years include ‘Chef of the Year 2013’ - SC Global, ‘Rising Chef of The Year 2015’ finalist - World Gourmet Summit, ‘Best Local Chef 2016’ - SG Readers’ Choice Awards, and ‘WGS Best 20 Chefs 2016’ - World Gourmet Summit. Bjorn is also frequently on television, having most recently featured as judge on MasterChef Singapore on Mediacorp’s Channel 5, and also on programmes such as MasterChef Asia and Secret Eats, and in lead roles on Eat List Star Season 2 and The Ultimate Brocation.
Experience the award-winning taste of Mott 32, as the lauded restaurant presents its authentic Chinese cuisine in Singapore for the first time. The name “Mott 32” pays homage to 32 Mott Street in New York, where the city’s first Chinese convenience store opened in 1851. The store served as the nucleus for what is now a vibrant Chinatown in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
Their chefs utilise the latest in modern and innovative cooking techniques from around the world to bring the best out of time-honoured recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Their signature dishes include the Apple-Wood Roasted Peking Duck, Barbecue Pluma Iberico Pork Glazed with Yellow Mountain Honey, Iberico Pork with Soft Quail Egg and Black Truffle Siu Mai, and Crispy Triple Cooked Wagyu Beef Short Rib.
The provenance of each ingredient is of paramount importance to them. Ethical sourcing by using organic and sustainable ingredients wherever possible, while also working closely with farms, ensures the uncompromising quality of the food presented.
To complement the dishes, their original mixology programme is inspired by Chinese culture and the flavors of Asia. It is this particular level of modernity, combined with a respect for tradition, that makes Mott 32 so spectacularly unique.
Beyond the food, a cohesive story of East meets West is told through the blend of industrial New York design and classical Chinese décor of every Mott 32 location. At Mott 32 Singapore, elements reminiscent of the Hong Kong flagship store are interwoven with Singapore's rich foliage and flora – a celebration of the shared history and connection between the two Asian metropolises.
Read more about what to expect from Mott 32 Singapore here.

GrabFood commits to merchants’ growth through a merchant platform and launches GrabKitchen in Hillview with over 10 F&B brands, including 3 virtual restaurants and the latest GrabFood Hub.
Based on consumer surveys and insights derived from the Grab app, consumers in Northwest Singapore wanted greater variety of healthy foods, burgers and local foods. Specifically in Bukit Batok, bubble tea, mala, and soup were not only the most frequently searched for items on GrabFood, but also saw significantly higher consumer demand than merchant supply.

To address this gap, GrabFood brought an eclectic mix of over 10 F&B brands into its first GrabKitchen in Singapore, offering a wide selection of food options. GrabKitchen features:

Consumers in surrounding Hillview districts such as Cashew, Bukit Batok, Bukit Gombak and Toh Tuck can have food and drink options delivered on-demand to their door via the Grab app, while those who do not mind taking a short walk to GrabKitchen can opt to dine-in at the location or choose the self pickup option in-app to save on delivery fees.

Ramen Champion is proud to announce that it will now house Gyumaru at its Bugis+ enclave. Gyumaru is the first ramen restaurant in Singapore to serve Gyukotsu Ramen (beef bone ramen), which is a rare dish in the ramen world.
A riff on the popular tonkotsu, the fully emulsified broth of the Gyukotsu Ramen boasts a clear consistency and a pronounced piquant flavour of beef fat. Relish the palate-enveloping note of the beef broth, which is made with beef bone and oxtail. The entire preparation takes two days to complete — the broth is first boiled for nine hours, before it is cooled and refrigerated for it to set into a thick and flavourful concentrate. Each beef broth cube is then simmered over low heat before it is served.
The broth is accompanied with springy thin noodles custom-made from a local Japanese noodle making specialist — for the doneness, there are two options to choose from: soft and hard. Thick tender cubes of well-marbled ribeye sourced domestically from a halal-certified supplier are placed atop the ribbons of al-dente noodles. Other ingredients including green onions and Japanese leek contribute delicate notes to the overall dish. Top the dish with the optional coriander for a local twist and additional fragrant lift!
Gyumaru is in the process of receiving its Halal certification — Muslim gourmands can very soon enjoy non-pork ramen!

Dishes at VUE he cites as examples include the Norwegian king scallop—among the world’s most environmentally friendly seafood—which he prepares au gratin with 18-month, cave-aged Gruy√®re De Grotte AOP; the free-range duck meticulously reared by House Burgaud in Challans—a highly sought-after delicacy that Chef Sam serves smoked and enhanced with tropical mustard dressing; and prime cuts of Wagyu beef sourced from the fertile lands of the Kumamoto Prefecture, smoked and then served with choice sides of vegetables grown by local farmers.

With the closure of its flagship tze char eatery at Hillview Avenue in June this year leaving fans scrambling into the city for their New Ubin fix; an upscale restaurant in the city centre CHIJMES cluster and a hotel restaurant in Zhongshan Park didn’t feel quite the same. Plans were already set in motion by its proprietors, the Pang family, to find a new space that could house the brand’s signature tze char eatery concept. The components were unique to its plight – an amalgamation of years of moving around oft offbeat locations, most famous of which were its Sixth Avenue, Sin Ming Industrial Estate and its latest Hillview Avenue incarnations.
The formula is as bewildering as it is exact. An off-the-beaten-path location accessible at best by car, far flung from the city and tucked away into the forgotten crevices of Singapore. It’d count the likes of paint shops and auto- repair businesses as its neighbours, and its cuisine best enjoyed in a nondescript outdoor canteen setting that has no business serving choice rib-eye cuts, kaya toast on baguette with French butter, or premium Bordeaux in Riedel glasses – but do so anyway. Here, New Ubin’s brand of rustic roots and kampong essence, which it serves its ‘Truly Singaporean’ cuisine with, fares exceedingly.
Today, that recipe has been exacted to a tee, and with all previous moves, comes with its own set of upgrades. Located on the ground floor of Space@Tampines, a commercial property along Tampines Industrial Crescent flanked by furniture showrooms and inflatable air dancers, is the 5,700 square feet New Ubin Village. The proposition is a canteen cluster that houses seven stalls, three of which its own concepts—including its back-to- basics tze char eatery New Ubin Tampines and a brand new incubator stall programme, New Ubin Test Kitchen—all enabled with modern-day technologies that allow guests to order and make cashless payments directly from their table without having to call for a physical menu or bill. A third concept is currently underway and will be announced at a later date.
Trattoria Pizzeria Logic, a well-established authentic Italian restaurant chain from Japan opens their first Singapore restaurant on Craig Road.
Trattoria Pizza Logic is best-known for their naples style cuisine that uses fresh ingredients, such as flour imported from Caputo in Naples.
Pizzaiolo Junichi Shoji, who is the winner of the prestigious Napoli Pizza World Championship 2012, an annual global contest to determine the world’s best pizza makers, is responsible for designing the pizza recipes. This makes Trattoria Pizza Logic the only restaurant in Singapore to have a World Championship Winning Pizzaiolo supervising its kitchen.
Co-helming the kitchen is Grand Chef Atsushi Terashima, who acts as the creative force behind the restaurant’s menu. Chef Atsushi Terashima was trained in Tuscany before he cooked in various restaurants across Italy. This experience has allowed him to pick up authentic Italian cooking techniques and create new dishes to add to Trattoria Pizza Logic’s mouth-watering menu.
The new Burger & Lobster is located in Raffles Hotel's famous Arcade, where diners will be able to enjoy a knock-out Burger & Lobster experience served alongside old-school opulence that Raffles Hotel has become hallmarked for.
As at all their venues, their mission (some say obsession) remains to make the most of quality ingredients – whether that’s the Nebraskan family-farmed beef that goes into their prime burgers, the freshest Atlantic lobsters or the premium spirits for their tempting cocktails.
The menu for Burger & Lobster Raffles features some of their all-time favourite dishes, such as their Original Roll, but also showcases a range of brand new never seen before dishes that have been carefully crafted using the freshest ingredients available in order to reflect Singapore's vibrant spirit in their own Burger & Lobster way.
Taikoo Lane Hotpot, is a restaurant that doles out authentic Sichuan and Cantonese hotpot broths and offerings! The concept is a brainchild of Chengdu Restaurant, which is known for its mouth-watering Sichuan cuisine. Taikoo Lane boasts a mixture of individual pots and large shared pots, so solo diners or large groups can enjoy a hotpot session anytime they have a craving.
Taikoo Lane’s version of the Sichuan Spicy Broth follows the traditional method of using beef tallow instead of oil. The beef tallow-based mala broth is much more flavourful than the oil-based renditions other hotpot restaurants in Singapore serve.
Chengdu Green Pepper Broth is another Taikoo Lane special Mala broth. Taking inspiration from Chengdu Restaurant’s best-selling Fish with Green Peppercorn Soup, the green peppercorn broth is a brand-new offering specially created by the Taikoo Lane team. Peppercorn oil and green peppercorns are Sichuan specialities, and the restaurant imports the ingredients from the province.
For diners who prefer non-spicy broths, there are offerings available such as Fish Soup Broth with Fresh Milk and Collagen Nourishing Pork Bone Soup. Both of these soups will appeal to ardent appreciators of Cantonese dishes. Able to alleviate the symptoms of excessive dampness in the internal system of our body, the nourishing fish soup broth is made with specially selected fresh fish and salmon bones. The gelatinous pork bone bro
