New Eats This Month: April 2017

A roundup of cool new eats to check out this month.


Address: 1 Keong Saik Rd, Singapore 089109 | Tel: 6223 5001 | Business Hours: 8am – 9pm (Mon & Tue); 8am – 10pm (Wed – Fri); Closed on weekends.

Inspired by the unique flavours of Hawaiian cuisine, Loloku is a new Poké Bar and Deli at Keong Saik Road. For the uninitiated, poké is a raw fish salad (and not a type of Pokémon, as one might assume), but the good people at Loloku have updated the dish to include a variety of healthy ingredients and flavours.

While prices aren’t exactly cheap, Loloku’s poké bowls are still a good option for those who want to have something healthy for lunch or dinner.

Address: 43 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088464 | Tel: 8121 1462 | Business Hours: 9am – 12am (Mon – Fri), 10am – 12am (Sat), 10am – 4pm (Sun)

If day drinking is your thing (hey, no judging here), you might want to check out Crackerjack for a cocktail or two. The newly-opened restaurant and bar not only has an all-day dining menu, but an impressive offering of drinks as well. The relaxed vibe coupled with its strategic central location makes Crackerjack the perfect place to sneak off for a quick drink (alcoholic or not, you decide) during work. Just make sure your boss isn’t there too, yeah?

Tom Yum Tonkotsu Ramen at IPPUDO

Available at IPPUDO outlets at Mandarin Gallery, Mohamed Sultan, Westgate and Shaw Centre, from 3rd April to 30 June 2017, while stocks last.

Popular ramen restaurant IPPUDO has introduced its new Tom Yum Tonkotsu Ramen in Singapore, after the dish received a positive response at its outlets in Thailand. The new addition to the menu combines IPPUDO’s signature tonkotsu broth with an authentic Thai tom yum soup, and tops off the springy noodles with fresh jumbo prawns. As the dish is a seasonal one, each IPPUDO outlet only has a limited quantity of 30 bowls per day – so head down earlier if you want to try it out.

Available at DessertStory outlets at Tiong Bahru Plaza #B1-140, Junction 8 #B1-K12, NEX #03-17, Sun Plaza #01-26, Hougang Mall #02-18 until the end of May 2017, or while stocks last.

Best known for their Asian desserts, local cafe chain DessertStory has expanded their menu to include popular desserts from the famous Taiwan night markets. Besides a new Taiwan Snow Ice Dessert with two flavours in one bowl, they also have a Peanut Ice Cream Roll on the menu – a somewhat strange (but interesting) combination of peanut shavings, coriander and ice cream wrapped in popiah skin.
