The middle of this year comes with plenty of new restaurants and cafes in Singapore. From popular cafes revamping their concepts to Singapore’s very first duck Korean barbecue, there’s plenty to look forward to when planning your next meals. 

Read on for the full rundown of new restaurants to check out in Singapore this June 2023.

1. M5 Coffee

Taiwanese coffee chain M5 Coffee recently opened their first international offshoot in Singapore, right in the heart of town. The Orchard Gateway cafe offers mountain-inspired drinks such as a Singapore-exclusive Mount Faber ($7), a three-layered drink comprising their premium coffee blend with milk, blue curacao syrup, and sea salt flakes. They also have an IG-worthy Bamboo Charcoal Honey Caffe Latte ($7.50) that’s made with honey, milk, and bamboo charcoal for an earthy note. 

Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in their array of desserts. A signature item is the Cactus Cupcake ($11), an aesthetically pleasing treat made of Biscoff biscuits, dark chocolate cake, and buttercream. They also serve a trendy Taro Coconut Cake ($8.50), made with fresh orh nee.

2. Keong Saik Bakery

Cult favourite local bakery Keong Saik Bakery has relocated from its OG premises in Chinatown. Now, the brand has set up its flagship in Bendemeer, at the Luzerne, where you can get all their beloved classics and a new menu of hot items. The striking new, futuristic interior is also a serious upgrade from their former, more rustic shophouse premises.

With over 20 pastries on the menu, it’s an understatement to say that you’ll be spoilt for choice. We recommend zoning in on their Mentaiko Cheese Croissant Cube ($6.40++) and Muah Chee Croissant Cube ($5.90++). The former stars flaky croissant with a creamy mentaiko middle, while the latter riffs on the mochi croissant trends with a bit of local flair. On the hot food front, the Otak Mac N Cheese ($15.90++) was a winning treat. Not too jelak, just spicy enough, and with a healthy dose of cheese, this dish offered comfort and indulgence in one bite.

3. Common Man Night Shift


For casual date nights and dinner catch-ups with friends, head to Common Man Night Shift, a night-time concept by popular cafe Common Man Coffee Roasters. Previously known as Drunk Farmer, the dinner-only concept offers a new menu with sourdough pizzas in unique flavours, fusion sides, and a huge selection of natural wines.

If you’re into rich and full flavours, we recommend their Duck & Foie Gras Pie ($38++): flaky puff pastry encasing a meaty filling of minced duck and foie gras. There’s also a creamy Cacio E Pepe Udon Pasta ($24++) that combines handmade udon pasta with Pecorino cheese and black pepper. For pizza, you won’t go wrong with the Umami Magic ($22++) for sharing. This stars Common Man’s signature 12-inch sourdough pizza base with a mix of cheeses, mushrooms, a runny egg, and chilli crisp AKA Lao Gan Ma.

4. Super Sub Hotdogs


Easties, here’s one for you: homegrown hotdog eatery Super Sub Hotdogs has a brand new outlet in Tampines, with their very own 12-inch jumbo hotdogs on the menu. Most of their items cost under $10, so they’re relatively wallet-friendly too.


Their unique toppings are a major selling point for Super Sub Hotdogs, so you can have your ‘dog with toppings ranging from yuzu crabmeat to chicken bolognese. If you’re dining with a group, order their Super Platter ($18), which comes with six small bites: chicken sausages, cheesy hotdogs, mac and cheese, coleslaw, truffle pretzels and rocket salad.

5. Waa Cow


Popular Japanese barbecue and beef don eatery, Waa Cow, has opened a new flagship outlet in VivoCity. They’re best known for their premium Wagyu beef bowls that are priced around $25, all of which will be available at the new outlet, alongside some exclusives.


The Meat Lovers Chirashi ($35.90++) is a dish we highly recommend. This all-in bowl will please any carnivore, thanks to its combination of Iberico pork jowl, Wagyu slices, teriyaki chicken, and foie gras, along with chunks of cucumber and tamago to sweeten the deal. Pair your donburi with any of their new appetisers and sides, including their Dragon Prawn Maki ($19.90++), where deep-fried, sweet prawn meets avocado and a zesty mentaiko mayo.

Niu Dian, the Taiwanese beef noodle eatery that has been endorsed by Show Luo, has opened their second outlet in Singapore, this time in Holland Village. This follows their first Balestier outlet, also the brand’s first overseas opening.

niu dian - original broth

They’re best known for having a spot on the Taiwanese Michelin Bib Gourmand list, as well as their famed Combination Specialty Beef Noodles ($19.90++). The latter allows you to choose between two types of broth: Original or Braised. We say go for the former, which has been simmered for 24 hours and is full of beefy goodness. The Holland Village outlet will also have their new beef rice bowls, priced from $15.90++. These are a fusion between lu rou fan, beef donburi, and oyako don—a bed of pearl grain rice is topped with slices of beef, and a runny omelette cooked in stock.

7. SODENG Korean Restaurant

sodeng korean restaurant - roasted duck on pan

The brains behind popular Busan pork stew eatery Um Yong Baek have recently opened a new Korean eatery that brings another novel K-BBQ concept to our shores. SODENG Korean Restaurant is Singapore’s first duck Korean barbecue restaurant. Duck isn’t the most common barbecue protein, but SODENG definitely validates the novelty. Young fresh ducks are used in the dishes here, so the meat isn’t gamey at all. 

sodeng korean restaurant - banchan

Have your duck with a selection of banchan, made by Korean experts, and be wowed by how each pickle delivers something new to the palate. Aside from duck, SODENG also serves up whole marinated beef prime ribs, known as Woo-Dae Galbi ($42++ per person). The ribs are marinated in a secret sauce that has its roots in one of Korea’s most famous bulgogi restaurants, so don’t skip this course.

The JUMBO Seafood Group have finally opened their very first halal concept, Mutiara Seafood, located in Geylang Serai. Don’t expect the halal-friendly copy-paste of the regular JUMBO menu here, though. Mutiara Seafood has all the OG’s classics available, as well as a selection of Indonesian-style grilled dishes.

mutiara seafood - chilli crab intro

The menu is chock full of family-friendly dishes, great for celebrating special occasions or just for coming together with your loved ones. Highlights include their Mee Goreng Gaya ‘Melayu’ ($20++/$30++/$40++), a seafood mee goreng medley, Udang Bakar Jimbaran ($28++ for four prawns), where prawns are chargrilled till juicy, and their famed Signature Chilli Crab (market price). The latter dish has a recipe that’s tweaked slightly for Mutiara Seafood, starring a sauce that’s a touch less sweet and more garlicky.

9. Mister Donut


The arrival of this famous Japanese mochi doughnut bakery to Bishan Junction 8 has caused quite a stir locally, with queues for the outlet lasting up to three hours. If you’re willing to brave the chaos, then here’s the doughnuts worth your buck: the Pon De Ring Chocolate ($2.50) is a house signature for a reason, with its QQ dough and chocolatey glaze that isn’t too sweet.


The Singapore-exclusive Strawberry Chocolate ($2.50) is a must-try too. While the doughnut itself doesn’t have the mochi texture of the Pon De Ring, the airy, dark chocolate bread pairs well with the berry and white chocolate glaze. Mister Donut also sells crullers, and sourdough doughnuts known as Yeast Donuts.

Fortune Centre isn’t just a hub for great vegetarian food, it is also home to Ume San 100, a brand-new Japanese bistro bar. To visit Ume San 100 is to first have to search for its entrance, for it is also a hidden bar.

If you’ve previously been to OLA Cocina del Mar at Marina Bay Financial Centre, and were bummed when they shuttered, head to Tinto on Dempsey Hill instead━helmed by Peruvian Chef Daniel Chavez and his wife Chef Tamara Chavez. Designed by Tamara, the space is meant to bring you into a Spanish home, while the food includes tapas dishes that the couple have discovered through their travels.

Start with a Gazpacho ($10++) for a cold tomato and Japanese cucumber soup with raspberry vinegar and heirloom cherry tomatoes, then move on to Cangrejo ($18++), a crab and avocado salad with salmon caviar. Look forward to their signature Tinto Paellas, such as New Valenciana ($32++/$58++), topped with marinated chicken, chorizo and more; for something different, consider their fideuas: a Valencian coastal dish that’s like paella, but prepared with pasta.

At Tajine, classic Moroccan ingredients such as preserved lemons and spice blends are made in-house, and feature in dishes such as Khizou Mchermel ($16++), a bright orange salad. 

Try their Briouates ($19++), for wild-caught Atlantic sardines in a filo pastry triangle, before getting one of their tajines, cooked in the iconic earthern claypot with its cone-shaped lid. We recommend the Milk-fed Veal Shank ($98++) that’s good for up to four to share, and to finish your meal with an order of Moroccan Tea ($12++) alongside some Sorbet ($16++), fragrant with orange blossom and lemon peel.

Here’s the catch: this omakase lunch is not available for seats at the sushi counter.

Otherwise, check out Unkai’s special five-course lunch sets, priced from just $26++. These include Bara Chirashi Don ($26++), Gindara Miso Yaki ($28++), Pork Cheek Rice Bowl ($28++), and even A5 Kagoshima Wagyu Don ($68++)

A five-course kaiseki lunch omakase here will set you back $88++, while dinner sees two mainstay options of a nine-course ($198++) or 11-course ($298++) feast.
