TOP New Places to Eat in Singapore 2017

Top new places to eat in Singapore

(Updated June 2016) Even as the months of the year tick away, the questions seem to remain the same – what’s new, what’s cool, where should we eat, what are Singaporeans queuing for now? There are many restaurants and cafes opening in Singapore every month. As ordinary patrons, neither our waistlines nor our pockets allow us to visit all the new eating places. We think it is time to start our 2017 list of new openings in Singapore that we have visited recently  – the TOP New Places to Eat in Singapore 2017. They are mainly affordable dining options with a few, what ordinary patrons may consider, a little upscale ones. We will update this page from time to time so come back and visit once in a while. Please also tell us about great new places you have visited.

Hawker Chan Restaurant Tai Seng

Hawker Chan Roast Pork Noodles

Since Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Chicken Rice & Noodles received their Michelin Star award in 2016, the snaking queue at the stall in Chinatown had become almost unmanageable. To bring the famed soya sauce chicken to more people, Chef Chan teamed up with Hersing Culinary to open a chain of quick service restaurants under the name “Liao Fan Hawker Chan”. The first restaurant was opened in November 2016 at 78 Smith Street. Another new Hawker Chan Restaurant has opened in early 2017 at 18 Tai Seng. Now we get access to Michelin Star food closer to home and without queuing for hours. Read about our lunch at Liao Fan Hawker Chan @ Tai Seng 18 here.
