New restaurants this June 2021
Even amidst P2HA, as F&B businesses scramble to adopt takeaway or delivery services, the food scene in Singapore remains just as vibrant. With that being said, here are nine new restaurants to try this June 2021 for us to #SaveFnBSG, especially during these turbulent times.
These restaurants provide delivery and takeaway options too, so you can enjoy their fare in the safety of home.
1. Wanton Seng’s Eating House
Run by the folks behind the now-defunct Wanton Seng’s Noodle Bar is Wanton Seng’s Eating House, located conveniently at Millenia Walk. This new concept boasts a comprehensive menu of noodle bowls, sides, sharing plates, and alcoholic beverages. Currently, their dishes are available for pick up and delivery.
Here, you can expect popular items from their previous noodle bar, such as the Signature Char Siu Noodles ($12.80++). This is a modern play on our local favourite wonton mee, topped with flame seared pork belly, a soft-centre egg, and copious amounts of crisp, airy lard. Other noteworthy dishes include their Mala Lion Head’s Meatball ($10++), dressed in an XO mala sauce, and the Ah Hua Kelong Mussels ($17++), flavoured with garlic and Jim Beam bourbon whisky.

These thick macarons, known as Fatfatcarons, are priced at $5.80 each, and feature localised flavours such as Orh Nee and Ondeh Ondeh. In line with the thicc theme, Haengbok Cakeyo also has Chubby Cookies for sale, with flavours such as Pandan Gula Melaka and Red Velvet. These are priced at $5.80 each.

Tucked away in the unassuming neighbourhood of Lengkok Bahru is Abundance, a home-based business turned physical eatery, best known for their hefty gua baos. They also offer an assortment of Taiwanese-style dishes, which are now available for preorder and pick up.
Their Gua Bao ($7.50+) features a hefty, melt-in-the-mouth pork belly, dressed with pickles, coriander, and roasted peanuts. There’s also the CCB ($7.90), or Crispy Chicken Bun, which sees a deep-fried chicken thigh, mango slaw, and peanut butter sauce, sandwiched in a lotus bun.
Meanwhile, if rice is your preferred carb, consider the Niu Yolk Fried Rice ($18), fried in beef fat, then topped with tender short rib slices and an oozy onsen egg.

4. Smile Dessert
Taking over the space where Nunsongyee Korean Dessert Cafe used to be is Smile Dessert, a pink-themed, four-storey dessert cafe in Bugis. This cafe is easily the prettiest one I’ve been to, decked with an IG-worthy ball pit, as well as sleepover-esque furniture on the top floor. Due to P2HA, Smile Dessert is currently open for takeaways.
Matching the aesthetics of the space are their beautifully curated desserts, such as the Black Swan Souffle ($15.90). This souffle pancake dish is dressed with black sesame cream, alongside an upside-down vanilla ice cream cone. There’s also the Multi-Layer Sweet Potato Cake ($6.90), stacked with crepes, cream, and purple-hued sweet potato.

There’s also the Grilled Cheese ($15++), made with blue cheese, cheddar, and mozzarella, alongside pickled red onions and slices of prosciutto.
