Privé Paragon, new all-day dining restaurant at Orchard Road


Operating daily from 8.30 am to 12.30 am, new cafe Privé Paragon certainly takes “all-day dining” to a new level. With such long operating hours, this is a cafe which is useful for us to catch breakfast or a late late dinner after normal restaurants close. For guests staying at nearby hotels, Privé Paragon would certainly be one option instead of the expensive hotel breakfast or room service.

Casa Rustico – Unpretentious new Italian restaurant at Mohamed Sultan Road

Casa Rustico

Casa Rustico is Italian for “Rustic House”. We were half-expecting an ornate Italian country-side decor, perhaps with checked table cloths, when we visited this new Italian restaurant at Mohamed Sultan Road recently. It turned out to be much less rustic than we anticipated. Rather than rustic, it was a simply furnished Italian restaurant.

Hideout by The Local Box at The Hereen

Hideout by the Local Box

Hideout by The Local Box is located in the basement level of Robinsons department store at The Heeren, Orchard Road. The cafe, opened in late 2018, serves local food and beverages. We have seen beautiful photos of the cafe and its food and decided to see if the photos on social media do justice to the place or if they flatter the new cafe.

Lunch at Magosaburo Ngee Ann City


Magosaburo 燒肉孫三郎 (シンガポール) is a restaurant that specialises in serving Japanese beef, mostly Wagyu. They have just moved into their new outlet Magosaburo Ngee Ann City from their previous location at Ion Orchard. We had a good experience at their former place (read about our visit here) and decided to have lunch at their new Magosaburo Takashimaya outlet. While the focus on a Japanese dining experience where guests can enjoy their choice of beef has remained the same, we think we prefer the old Magosaburo.

Lunch at the new Jumbo Seafood Ion Orchard restaurant

TOP New Places to Eat in Singapore

Jumbo Seafood Ion Orchard is the Jumbo Restaurant Group’s new restaurant in Singapore. It is located on level 4, the highest of the shopping levels. Level 4 of the Ion Orchard now has a concentration of major Chinese restaurant names. Putien, Imperial Treasure Steamboat and Taste Paradise are on the same floor. Imperial Treasure Teochew restaurant is just one floor below. We had a dim sum and seafood lunch at the new Jumbo Seafood Ion Orchard restaurant.
