Ben & Jerry’s is launching two new flavours – Chocolate Shake It Truffles and Chillin’ the Roast Truffles – with its first ever Scoopitiam at Lau Pa Sat. The pop-up store, which will run from 16 to 29 July, will feature a kopitiam inspired set-up complete with a photo booth. Drop by to try out the new flavours, and enjoy a free scoop of selected flavours served with rainbow bread or wafer biscuits. The perfect treat to keep cool in this criminally hot weather?

If you visit Hong Kong regularly, you would most likely have heard of Tsui Wah – the cafe chain which Singaporeans seem to love (but locals find overpriced, or so we heard from our disgruntled taxi driver there). The popular chain has opened its first outlet in Singapore, bringing their signature Crispy Bun with Condensed Milk and Milk Tea to our humble shores. Other menu highlights include the Swiss Sauce Chicken Wings, Borscht with Thick Toast and Signature Pork Chop Bun.

CBD regulars probably already know of Sum Yi Tai, the modern Cantonese-style restaurant and bar along Boon Tat Street. The establishment is housed in a 3-storey conservation shophouse, with a restaurant, bar and karaoke room within the building. The backroom bar, Mona Lounge, has been around for sometime but we’ve included it in this list because, well…because it’s a new discovery for us. And also, it’s pretty cool.
1980’s retro decor aside, the ambience of the place makes you feel like you’re in a clandestine bar along the seedy backstreets of Hong Kong – and not, in fact, in the bustling Central Business District of Singapore. The menu offers an interesting mix of modern Asian-inspired drinks, as well as Cantonese-style tapas to complete your entire experience. You need a lock code to enter the bar though, but diners at Sum Yi Tai can request for it from the staff.

80’s kids, this one’s for you. NINETEEN80 is a cool new bar which pays homage to well-loved games like PacMan, Space Invaders, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter (Hadouken!). The 80’s-themed drinking hole is practically a playground for those who are still kids at heart, with old school arcade games, classic cocktails and retro beats to keep you entertained all night.

Time to put down that KOI cup, because TP Tea has officially joined the bubble tea battle in Singapore. The popular Taiwanese chain has opened its first local outlet at Changi Airport, serving up thirst-quenchers like the TieGuanYin Latte, White Gourd Latte and Soy Bubble Milk Tea.

Sun with Moon has been around for ages, but the popular Japanese restaurant still launches new menus from time to time to keep things fresh. The 2018 Grand Menu includes a new version of their signature Kamameshi (kettle rice) – the Niku Atsu Hotate & Unagi Kamameshi, which features grilled unagi and flame-seared scallops with fragrant Japanese rice.
If you want something a little heartier, go for the new Steak Moriawase, which is a succulent grilled steak combo of Japanese Wagyu, US Tenderloin and pork steak. Light eaters, on the other hand, will appreciate the Temari Sushi – bite-sized sushi balls topped with tuna, salmon, scallop, grilled eel, yellowtail, mackerel, swordfish, cuttlefish, salmon belly and boiled prawn.
