1. Black Marble


Opened by one of Singapore’s most respected F&B veterans, Otto Weibel, Black Marble is a chic farm-to-table steakhouse at Holland Village. Start your meal with the fragrant and creamy Baked Brie Cheese ($16++) that’s highlighted by rosemary, honey and fermented black garlic.

Load up on succulent meat with the 45 Days Dry-Aged Angus Bone-in Ribeye ($78++ for 600gm) and Grain-fed Lamb Rack ($38++ for 350gm), both of which are melt-in-your-mouth tender with a nice layer of fats. That being said, the Lobster & Scallop Saffron Risotto ($34++) is the star at this new restaurant here, as the medley of seafood, including Boston lobster tail, tiger prawn, and octopus, is brimming with smoky flavour from the grill.

Gone are the days where you have to travel across the border to get a taste of GO Noodle House’s bursting meatballs. This popular Malaysian noodle joint has finally opened their first outlet in Singapore, right in the heart of town. A must-have at this new restaurant is their Signature Bursting Meatball (from $8.90++). You’ll get waves of rich flavours from the juicy meatball and robust fish broth.

If you’re in the mood for dry noodles, check out their Hakka Sauce Pan Mee with Century Egg ($9.90++). These handmade thin noodles are tossed in pork lard, giving them that sucker-punch of flavour. Those who want a lil’ bit of everything can get the best of three worlds with the Trio Platter ($12.90++). You’ll score Crispy Fuchuk, Five Spice Meat Roll, and Gold Coin.

4. Fluff Stack


Souffle pancakes are very much in trend, and Fluff Stack is quick to jump onto this bandwagon. To keep up with the times, they’ve added a couple of exciting new additions to their menu. The Tiramisu Souffle Pancakes ($13.80) is made without any booze, so you can get your mid-day caffeine dose without the buzz.

Another flavour joining the pancake fam is Matcha Souffle Pancakes ($13.80). Airy stacks of eggy pancakes are topped with billowy Chantilly cheese and scoop of red bean. Pour the matcha cream over the pancakes for more intense bitter notes. The dish also comes with a side of warabi mochi for a hint of earthiness.

5. Icenoie Hokkaido


Icenoie Hokkaido at City Square’s Don Don Donki previously impressed us with their highly IG-worthy Crème Brûlée Soft Serve ($8). This year, they have dolled up their popular raw milk soft serve with edible air-flown flowers and unpasteurised honey straight from Hokkaido. At $7 a pop for the new Honey Soft Serve, each lick of the dessert will bring you to an icy and milky abyss. 

Cheesecake lovers will also be happy to find updated items in their menu such as the Baked Cheese Cake ($5.90). Those who want a zhnged up version of the treat can opt for their Triple Cheese Baked Cheese Cake ($10.90) instead.

6. Korio


Do not miss this humble hole-in-the-wall eatery at Far East Square. Korio recently opened its doors in the CBD, serving pretty and atas doughnuts as well as hearty sandwiches with sick cheese-pulls and well-seasoned meats. Their Grilled Cheese ($8) ranks high on our list of favourite cheese toasts thanks to the melty mix of cheddar, American cheese, and caramelised onions.

If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up during work, pop by for their doughnuts which come in seven flavours: Caramelised Biscuits ($4.50), Peanut Butter Raspberry Jelly ($4.50), Passion Fruit White Chocolate ($4.50), White Chocolate, Coconut & Hazelnuts ($4.50), 70% Dark Chocolate ($4.50), Coffee ($4.50), and Original ($4).

7. Tablescape 


Modern European restaurant and bar, Tablescape, will be offering an exclusive five-course Valentine’s Day Degustation Menu ($168++ per couple) from 8 to 16 February 2020. The set comprises smoked oysters, pan-seared foie gras, risotto, a choice of black cod or beef tenderloin steak, and a deconstructed tiramisu. The oysters are smoked in-house, and are given an added boozy boost thanks to a clever addition of Singapore Sling granita.

All the components were excellent, but the tiramisu was a delightful way to end the meal. The dessert is made with a sweet ladyfinger biscuit that’s skillfully topped with rich mascarpone mousse. You can even score points with your date by piping the mousse yourself!

Address: 10 Coleman Street, Level 3, Grand Park City Hall, Singapore 179809

8. Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner


The Tiong Bahru Bakery outlets at Raffles City and Funan have been revamped to Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner, with a large DINER plastered next to their store signs. Besides their signature croissants and kouign-amann, they have a whole slew of hot food items that are masterfully prepared by Paul Albert, a 25-year-old French chef who has worked at cafes and bakeries in France and Brazil.

Those with a sweet tooth will like their Fluffy Brown Butter Pancake-Sweet ($21++), which is masterfully fermented for 24 hours by Paul and his team. Brown butter replaces regular butter, giving the pancakes a pleasant nuttiness and an extra golden-brown colour. There’s also an addictive salted butter caramel sauce that binds everything together, along with a lemongrass and lemon zest infused Chantilly cream that gives a kiss of tartness to everything else.

Tipplers can rejoice, as the bar has the largest selection of taps—32 to be precise—for you to choose from including Singapore Sling ($20++) and craft beers ($17++ for a flight of four) Food choices are aplenty too, with a wide menu showcasing hearty brunch fare as well as fusion grub. Savour the Dry Laksa Pasta ($24++) which comes with a piquant sauce, juicy prawns and crispy tao pok. The Grilled Teriyaki Salmon & Soba ($26++) is a good main to get too, as the salmon is nicely grilled and pairs well with the refreshing soba salad.

The restaurant aims to serve each diner within three minutes of ordering, so you can be assured of having a fast meal here.

Prices start from $8.80 for a set meal that comes with meat, rice, soup, and a choice of kimchi or salad. The most expensive item on the menu is the Wagyu Steak Set 200g ($29.80), which features a thick slab of Australian Wagyu sirloin. We liked how the meat was juicy and succulent. However, it’s marinated with a special BBQ sauce that was a little too sweet for our liking.

New restaurants in January 2020


1. Tsuta


January New Restaurants - Tsuta

Michelin-starred Tsuta is releasing a new range of tonkotsu ramen without any MSG or artificial flavours. The restaurant previously focused on a lighter style of shoyu broth, with their main dish being the Shoyu Soba ($15) with truffle-flavoured broth. 

Due to a high demand for the tonkotsu ramen, head chef Yuki has come up with the three new recipes after a year’s worth of kitchen trials. 

January New Restaurants - Tonkotsu Soba

The main attraction is the Tonkotsu Soba ($12), which comprises classic tonkotsu broth and hard soba noodles. It’s topped with crunchy black fungus and a tender piece of chashu. The broth is a bit lighter than the soup base that you’d find elsewhere and is less cloying. 

There’s also the Kurobishio Tonkotsu Soba ($13) and Mala Tonkotsu Soba ($13). The former contains black garlic oil which makes it more fragrant. Fried garlic is sprinkled over the dish, providing smoky notes. The mala broth is rich, slightly spicy, and has the distinct aroma of mala. It’s rather sweet, and the meatiness of the tonkotsu broth is slightly overpowered by the herbal flavours. 

Address: 109 North Bridge Road, #01-04, Funan Mall, Singapore 179097
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm

Tsuta is not a halal-certified eatery.

There are only five signature desserts on the menu, most of which are made with specially sourced ingredients from Taiwan. 

The Taiwan Taro Lava with Taro Pearl and Cream Mousse ($6.60) comprises taro paste mixed with tapioca balls, and topped with cream mousse from Germany. The taro flavour is gao and you can even taste shredded taro in the drink.

January New Restaurants - Fresh Mango Milk

The Fresh Mango with Golden Crystal and Creamy Sago Milk ($6.90) is our favourite of the lot with its indulgent mango puree that’s sandwiched between a bed of sago milk and crystal jelly. Topped with cubes of fresh mangoes, the drink is for those with a sweet tooth.

Their Cheeseburger ($15) is a sloppy yet delicious mess, which features fresh American cheese and two beef patties that are juicy and full of beefy flavour.

We’re fans of their Angus Beef Patty Cheese Burger ($17++), which contains the staples of a classic cheeseburger such as melted cheese, greens, and a beef patty. The beef patty comprises three components: Angus brisket, striploin, and wagyu fat. The result is a hunk of meat that’s umami-rich with the right amount of fattiness.
