Five Oars Coffee Roasters

Good coffee, addictive sides and hearty mains — this Melbourne-inspired cafe does it all, and really well too. The Créme Brûlée French Toast is a stunning dish well sought-after. Thick brioche toasts are topped with caramelised sugar and custard, alongside mixed berries, popcorn and pistachio ice cream — a feast for both the eyes and tummy.

From a locally-inspired Hainan Chicken Rice Bowl to bowls designed for ketogenic and paleo diets, take your pick at Kipos Collective and eat on for health! You can also build your own bowl from just $10 — we highly recommend going for the aburi salmon with creamy, tangy mentaiko.

Taking over the former grounds of Jimoto-Ya, Mister Wu offers a lineup of classic Chinese fare with a wide tea selection. Mr Su’s Dry La Mian boasts chewy noodles in a sweet yet savoury sauce, alongside braised pork belly that’s meltingly tender. Top up $4 to complete your lunch set with a side dish and Chinese tea.

Hailing from Tagaytay, Philippines, Leslie’s Restaurant has opened a branch at North Bridge Centre serving homely Filipino cuisine. Come with a few friends to share their specialty dishes — the Bulalo (bone marrow stew) is very comforting. If you’re dining solo, there are also rice combos akin to our local economy rice.

The team behind Baker & Cook has launched a new burger concept at Greenwood Avenue. The fluffy and flavourful sourdough buns provide an excellent complement to the burgers here, especially the all-American Holy Smoke that comes with a juicy beef patty, savoury bacon and house BBQ sauce.

This new restaurant in Yishun lets you have dry fish pot AND hotpot! Their unique dry fish pot is prepared by cooking fish slices in a specially-concocted broth, before flash-frying to achieve a slightly crispy exterior. Thereafter, dig in to the hotpot with either pork bone broth or spicy mala broth — both fare well in giving your meat and seafood items a flavour boost.

Housed in DUO Galleria, Nooka dishes out modern Thai as well as Spanish-inspired dishes at reasonable prices. Milky Seafood Tom Yum Soup with a hint of tartness? Yes please. The tapas-inspired Thai Gambas sees prawns bathed in flavourful olive oil and is delicious, especially when lapped up with rice.

From the team behind PS.Cafe comes Jypsy, a smart casual Japanese restaurant along Martin Road. The menu takes a contemporary spin on classic Japanese fare — the Jypsy Salmon Tacos in crispy seaweed shells and the wok hei-infused Smokey Unagi Fried Rice both make pretty tasty nosh.
