We like to visit new eating places but we think that it may not be possible for a person to visit every new F&B outlet in Singapore even if she eats out everyday. We share our list of new eateries in Singapore that we have visited recently – The Ordinary Patrons (TOP) New Cafes & Restaurants in Singapore 2020. They are mainly affordable dining options – new food & beverage outlets catering to ordinary patrons without eye watering salary or expense account.
We provide links to our posts about the new restaurants and cafes we have listed where there are more photos and information about the menu and food. We will update this page from time to time so come back and visit once in a while.
