A round up of cool new eats to check out this month.
Origin Bar at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore
Location: Shangri-La Hotel, Lobby Level, Tower Wing, 22 Orange Grove Road, Singapore 258350 | Business Hours: 5pm-1am (Sun-Wed); 5pm-2am (Sat&Sun) | Dress Code: Smart Casual | Contact Number: 6213 4595
Origin Bar is the latest addition to Shangri-La Hotel’s newly-renovated Tower Wing. The cocktail menu is largely inspired by Singapore’s iconic districts, such as Orchard Road, Chinatown, Little India, Marina Bay and more – so you can expect interesting drinks like The Pearl (Black Forest gin with tofu, elderflower, sea grapes and Mugi shochu), Leaf The Curry (aged rum with tamarind, cardamom and a curry leaf) and Buona Vista (Campari with coffee, fig and distilled hazelnut chocolate).

Say Chiizu Cafe
Location: Bugis+, 201 Victoria Street, #04-01, Singapore 188067 | Business Hours: 10am – 10pm daily
We hope you’re not lactose intolerant, because Say Chiizu has opened its first concept cafe at Bugis+, with enough cheesy treats to send you into a food coma. Besides their Famous Cheese Toast, the concept cafe also has various drinks and fried snacks with – what else?- cheese, of course. If you can’t decide what to get, try the Matcha Cheese Toast, Super Long Fries or Cheese Tea (Thai milk tea with cheese foam).

The Butcher’s Kitchen – Flaming Beef Bowl

The Butcher’s Kitchen in Suntec City has attracted long queues since it launched its Flaming Beef Bowl, and they’ve recently introduced four new beef bowls to satisfy their hungry (and camera-wielding) customers. The new menu includes the Flaming Wagyu Beef Bowl, Flaming Japanese Wagyu Beef Bowl (because not all Wagyu beef is from Japan yo), Flaming Organic Beef Bowl (for those who are trying to #eatclean) and the Non-Flaming Beef Bowl (for the weak of heart).

Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre
Location: 110 Pasir Ris Central, Singapore 519641 | Business Hours: 7am – 10.30pm (Hours may vary among the different stalls.) | Contact Number: 6444 0188
Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre is not your typical kopitiam, as the two-storey building has both traditional hawkers and new generation stalls for an eclectic mix of cuisines. The first level houses the usual hawker stalls, while the second level has more new-age choices like grain bowls, grilled chicken with mushroom rice and Korean army stew.
