Ralph Lauren fans will soon have something to be excited about, the fashion brand’s upcoming cafe launch in Singapore. Ralph’s Coffee is set to open in The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands in mid-July 2023. You can expect the brand’s signature dark green colours here at the dine-in cafe, with vintage-inspired furnishings. Food-wise, they are known for their chunky New York-style cookies, as well as their Five Layer Chocolate Cake (price TBD) which are said to be a mainstay at the new MBS cafe. Coffee will be served here, too.

There are no updates on the Singapore branch at the moment, but we’ll add more details here when we get more information.

2. Anna’s Sourdough 


Anna’s Sourdough is a sourdough specialty cafe in Punggol, where the menu extends beyond the usual suspects of sourdough bread. Instead, you’ll find sourdough pizza, pasta, and even drinks here! 


Founded by Anna Lim, who is also behind The Soup Spoon, the sourdough starter and dishes here are all made in-house. We had the Dribs and Drops Diversity Board ($20++), which comes with six slices of sourdough toast and a variety of dips and spreads, as well as Green Chilli Prawn Aglio Olio ($32++), starring a handmade sourdough tagliatelle. We especially loved our order of Crab and Mozza ($35++), topped with Thai green mango slices and blue swimmer crab meat marinated in lime juice with kaffir lime leaves and red chillies.

3. Wanderlost 


Head to Bugis+ for Wanderlost, a fairy tale-inspired rooftop bar that’s also Muslim-owned! Try their Bone-in Braised Beef Ribs ($39+), slow-cooked with caramelised onions and spices. We enjoyed its super tender finish and melt-in-your-mouth gelatinous bits, paired with button mushrooms and mashed potatoes.


They’ve got a Ramly burger-inspired Wanderamly Burger Lecak ($28+) too, which comes with a 180g, egg-wrapped beef patty, fries, and salad. Alternatively, order the Wanderendang Nachos ($17+), a local twist on nachos, topped with minced beef rendang.

FYP Cafe is somewhat of a hidden gem in the heart of town. Located in Orchard Central, this glamping-inspired cafe serves loaded bagels and lava cookies by Whiskdom, alongside freshly made XXL fries by Big Big Fries. There’s also a nice selection of coffee and tea-infused drinks on offer.


Do order Big Big Fries’ famous handmade fries, priced at $12.90+ per portion. You can choose up to two out of six flavours, including Nacho Cheese and Truffle Mayonnaise, but we highly recommend sticking to what they’re most known for: Mentaiko Mayonnaise. Other must-tries from the menu are the Truffle Beef Steak ($14.90+) bagel and Matcha Lava Cookie ($6.50+), which pairs matcha with white chocolate.

One of the latest Italian spots to hit town is Fico in East Coast Park, headed by Chef-Partner Mirko Febbrile, who used to be Chef de Cuisine at Michelin-starred Braci. This is the Pugliese native’s first restaurant, which goes back to basics and embraces the Southern Italian region’s no-frills, no-waste dining traditions.

fico - cacio e pepe cheese wheel

You’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve left Singapore behind, with its balmy, super chio indoor and outdoor seats. Start with one of Mirko’s focaccina━a focaccia-pizza cross that comes as Tropea Onions ($18++), topped with cheese and honey, or Piennolo Giallo Tomatoes ($22++), laden with anchovies, olives, capers and oregano. 

On the pasta front, consider Denti del Drago ($25++) for a rarely seen white ragu, or Spaghetti ($26++) for cacio e pepe cooked in a pasta wheel. Don’t miss Grilled Pork Collar ($38++) or any of their desserts, which you can pick off a dessert trolley, priced at $14++ for two!

paaru - french toast shokupan detail

French Toast Shokupan ($12++) is a sweet option, which we loved for its crisp, caramelised exterior and the bread’s characteristic chew. It’s served with Japanese brown sugar syrup, and sprinkled with cacao nibs as well as sea salt. You can also order Eggs on Shokupan (from $11++) for poached or scrambled eggs with add-ons such as portobello mushroom ($5++) and thick-cut bacon ($6++).

Keong Saik Bakery’s flagship is now no longer on Keong Saik Road but in Luzerne, a building in Bendemeer that also houses SYIP.

A robot chef frying up fried chicken—that’s what you’re getting at Robert Chicken, a Korean fried chicken chain that has opened its first outlet here in Basement One of Great World. Here, a flexible mechanical arm is what handles the majority of the preparation process, and it’s quite the spectacle—you can see it in action in this Instagram post. You have a range of fried chicken flavours to select from, such as Original, Butter Soy, Chipotle Mayo, Sweet and Spicy, and Black Pepper.

You can choose to order 6 pieces for $11, 12 pieces for $18.90, or a substantial 18 pieces for $28.90. At present, boneless fried chicken is the sole option available, but that alone guarantees a scrumptious meal. For the fickle-minded, you can opt for the Half-Half Chicken ($22.50), which allows you to pick any two flavours. This way, you get the best of both worlds.
