22 New Restaurants In Singapore This March 2024—Durian Croissant, Cheap Buffets And More

5th March 2024

New restaurants in Singapore this March 2024

While February was abuzz with Chinese New Year celebrations and Valentine’s Day feasts, March beckons with an array of freshly minted eateries in Singapore waiting to be explored. From legit Filipino lechon to a gelato cafe where you can get tattooed, here are all the new restaurants and cafes to dine at this March 2024!

1. Senor Taco

Senor Taco has reopened their flagship at Clarke Quay so you can munch on Mexican street food and pregrame before heading to the club. The huge restaurant is decked out in vibrant red and boasts a swanky dance floor, a live band stage, and a DJ booth spinning Latin beats all night long.

The menu here is extensive, featuring tacos, quesadillas, frozen cocktails and more. A standout dish is the Birria ($28++) tacos, comprising succulent lamb that’s slow-cooked for 48 hours. Another crowd favourite is the Torta De Milanesa ($24++), a hearty Mexican torta sandwich filled with breaded beef steak, grilled cheese, and avocado. Senor Taco also offers happy hour promos from 5pm to 8:30pm daily, where you can enjoy two Corona beers, house wines, and house spirits for just $14++!

Address: River Valley Road, #01-09A, Block 3C, Singapore 179022
Opening hours: Sun-Mon 5:30pm to 1am, Tue-Thurs 5:30pm to 2am, Fri-Sat 5:30pm to 3am

2. Meatchelin


Meatchelin has garnered a fair bit of buzz, setting itself apart from the K-BBQ throng in Tanjong Pagar. They claim to be the first Korean barbecue spot to spotlight lamb, and also offer tableside grilling services by Korean oppa chefs—their words, not ours. 


If you’re dining in a group, order their Meatchelin Signature Lamb Ribs ($138++), where you get six whole lamb ribs grilled to enjoy. The lamb here does not taste gamey, as they’re both grass-fed and pasture-raised. Another item worth the splurge is their Wagyu Sirloin ($58++), starring marbled, melt-in-your-mouth beef. Another perk here is the fact that they make their kimchi fresh, tableside, so you can expect sweeter, fresher kimchi than the ones you get at other Korean restaurants.

FairPrice isn’t the kind of place we’d expect to spend our Friday nights, but the FairPrice Finest at Clarke Quay is changing the game for us.

13. Tarik


Tarik has been minted as the spot for the best teh tarik in Singapore, so if you want to be the judge of that, swing by their Bali Lane cafe.  The industrial space seats about 20, with cosy nooks and intimate seats for your midday tea break.


The syphon method is used to brew coffees and teas here, except their famed  Teh Tarik ($3). Nevertheless, the drink arrives in a syphon maker for visual oomph. In our opinion, it is one of the best teh tarik you can find. Made with Ceylon tea dust sourced by the owner, you get a nuanced, aromatic brew that’s kept warm for longer thanks to the syphon. They also serve cold coffees and teas, in inventive flavours such as Sunrise Cheese Latte ($7) and Tiramisu Cream Latte ($7.30).

14. Le Chocolat Maxime Frédéric


Le Chocolat Maxime Frédéric garnered quite a fair amount of attention in the past month, and for good reason. Housed in the Louis Vuitton flagship at Marina Bay Sands, it is the only place where you can get legit, LV-branded chocolates and confectioneries in Singapore. The chocolaterie is established by famed French patissier, Maxime Frédéric, who is also the man behind all the cakes and chocolates served at Paris’ Louis Vuitton Cafe. 


When we visited, we got to try three items: the Coated Hazelnuts ($44), Chocolate Bar ($30), and Chocolate, Hazelnut and Vanilla Spread ($50). All of them bear the LV monogram in some fashion, making them great for gifts. FYI: $30 is the cheapest thing you can get in the store, so be prepared to splurge!

15. Lukumades


If you’ve ever been to Melbourne, you might have heard of Lukumades, a popular Greek doughnut chain. They’ve now set up shop in Singapore, with their flagship store located on Arab Street. The name here is a riff off loukoumades, the bite-sized doughnut balls they sell. You can pick and choose from a variety of sauces and toppings to enjoy with your doughnut. Prices start at $8.50, which gets you eight balls.


Unlike the usual brioche doughnut, loukoumades are chewier and more mochi-like. Aside from doughnuts, you get gelato here as well, in flavours such as Pistachio, Salted Caramel, and Mango Passion Sorbet. Prices start at $5 a scoop.

For legit, wallet-friendly Korean street food, swing by Seoul Bunsik at Far East Plaza. It’s a great spot for a casual meal, as you can enjoy DIY ramyeon, tteokbokki, gimbap and the like here. The DIY Rameyon is a must. Priced at $7.80, you enjoy your ramyeon prepared on special induction cookers—just like in Korea—zhnged up with add-on toppings such as cheese ($1) and egg ($1).


Pair that with their Original Gimbap ($13.80) or a side of hearty Tteokbokki ($13.80). Fried chicken lovers will be happy to know that Seoul Bunsik also has  Spicy Chicken ($19.80), served boneless!

This fine dining restaurant takes over the spot of the Michelin-starred Corner House, which closed its shutters in June 2023.


Visit from Fridays to Sundays for their four-course lunch menu, priced at $98++ per person. During our visit, our unanimous favourite was the second main: Fungi & Corner, made with mushrooms that were dried and infused with herbs such as sage and rosemary, cooked to a thick and rich consistency. It’s then paired with rosti, complete with fresh truffle shavings and a confit egg yolk for extra creaminess. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, visit for dinner instead, where you’ll find two elaborate menus available: Signature ($188++) and Experience ($288++).

Head down to Monster Curry to try their updated menu, which includes plant-based options such as “Spam” Fries ($7.90++), Truffle Meatless Katsu Salad ($12.90++), and Tomato Fungi Pasta ($12.90++). The “Spam” Fries comprise deep-fried vegetarian spam and tofu sticks, paired with your choice of dipping sauce: Homemade Curry Mayo, Saikyo Miso, Mentaiko Sauce, Mayonnaise or Ketchup. We also liked the salad for its fragrant truffle-infused flavour and fresh, crunchy vegetables. 

The updated menu also offers new mains. We recommend the Scallop Cream Stew Omelette Curry ($18.50++) if you like your curry mild. Plus, it comes with fresh scallops! And for those who love rotisserie chicken, get the Rosemary Chicken Thigh Omelette Curry ($16.90++) for well-charred chicken skin.
