As ordinary patrons, neither our waistlines nor our pockets allow us to visit all the new places to eat in Singapore. We hope that those we try are nice. This is our list of new openings in Singapore that we have visited recently – the TOP New Places to Eat in Singapore. They are mainly affordable dining options with a few, what ordinary patrons may consider, a little upscale ones. These are places we will be happy to visit again. We will update this page from time to time so come back and visit once in a while.
