TOP New Cheap and Nice Restaurants in Singapore 2017

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles at Esplanade Signature Mee Kia

There are many new restaurants and cafes in Singapore. However, learning about the opening of another swanky restaurant with a celebrity chef can sometimes be like knowing that an ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain – interesting to know but quite irrelevant to the ordinary patrons. Fortunately, there are also many new nice places in Singapore where we can have a affordable meal. These are comfortable casual dining places where we can have a meal for less than $15 per person. Here is The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) list of new affordable eating places – TOP New Cheap and Nice Restaurants in Singapore 2017. 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 cheap and nice restaurants that you may come across.
