Four new restaurants to try before the end of 2019
Don't limit your festive feasts to Christmas buffets. Try these new F&B openings in December.
This month’s see two new concepts serving Japanese and Greek cuisine, while two beloved brands – PS. Cafe by the Sea and Harry’s – have expanded with new outlets in the east and Sentosa. One is perfect for a leisurely Sunday brunch, while the other offers 32 kinds of beer on tap.
PS.Cafe by the Sea
The pioneer cafe brand marks its first foray into the east neighbourhood with its eight outlet, PS.Cafe by the Sea. Inspired by the waterfront locale of East Coast Park, the expansive 120-seater space serves seafood-focused dishes, alongside some of their signature crowd-pleasers. To cater to the families that frequent the area, the cafe has also launched a Junior menu.
Must-try dishes include the Lemongrass Mussel & Clam Spaghettini ($29.50), featuring a generous serving of pasta and seafood tossed in a Thai-inspired sweet and sour sauce. For something heartier, opt for the Chorizo & Calamari Stew ($30) brimming with white beans and fire-roasted peppers. Mop it up with the accompanying toasted bread and black garlic aioli. A local favourite is the Singapore Chilli Crab & Prawns ($32) and PS.Cafe by the Sea’s version consists of battered soft-shell crabs, grilled tiger prawns and a side of Jade Fried Rice.

Harry’s Resort World Sentosa
This 221-seater bar is Harry’s new flagship outlet, and befitting of its abode, the space is split into four distinct entertainment spaces. Start by walking through the Brewers Living Hall, which features a performance stage and a staggering 32 beers on tap. Continue on to the dining lounge at Harry’s Parlour, or pick a seat at the quieter Patio area, which is nestled away from the bustling main street. Need to blow off some steam? Head over to the Games Room for a round of pool or try your hands at the two old school arcade machines.
The main attraction is, of course, the beer. From the outlet exclusive Tropical Sun Harry’s Premium Pale Ale ($16), to signature Harry’s Premium Lager ($16) to local craft beers, there’s something to satisfy all palates. Better yet, order the Beer Flight ($17) of four mini-pints. Pair the brews with delectable bar bites like spicy Sambal Meatballs ($16) or mains like Beef Rendang Burger ($18) and Dry Laksa Pasta ($22).

Yet another acclaimed ramen chain from Japan has made its way onto our shores, this time hailing from Fukouka. Ardent fans in London and Japan line up daily to taste their signature tonkotsu ramen. The noodles are cooked in a broth boiled for over 18 hours and a proprietary secret sauce. Their first outlet in Singapore makes its home in Paya Lebar Square. Signature ingredients are imported directly from the original restaurant in Japan.
Beyond the famous Chashu Tonkotsu Ramen, the aromatic Truffle Ramen is a crowd-pleaser, featuring a duo of black truffle oil and truffle jelly that perfumes the rich broth. Those who like it with a dose of heat will take a liking to the Spicy Yuzu Ramen. The signature broth is mixed with corn-fed chicken broth, and finished with an aromatic yuzu miso. It’s then topped with chashu pork collar, spicy miso paste and pickled red onions.

Healthy grain bowls are great for the body, both they often consist of a mishmash of ingredients that are cobbled together. Supergreek, as Singapore’s first fast-casual Greek concept, changes the formula with grain bowls that showcase the complementary nature of Mediterranean flavours. Everything here is prepared from scratch, courtesy of head chef Altin Mata, who brings 20 years of experience to the table.
Try the Flame Grilled Steak ($13.90) and Roasted Barramundi ($12.90). In the former, premium USDA choice beef, brown rice, greens, roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes are mixed with a fresh Greek vinaigrette and served with homemade tzatziki and hummus. Save some space for the Greek Classic ($4.90); Greek yoghurt is made in-house using a 30-hour process, and topped with honey and crushed walnuts.
