The Korean wave continues to sweep across Singapore and has now reached South Beach. The hip Mexican fusion restaurant from Seoul, Vatos Urban Tacos, has just opened an outlet in the South Beach Quarter. It offers a variety of tacos, burritos, quesadillas as well a good range of craft beers and magaritas. The idea for Vatos Urban Tacos apparanetly sprang from the bellies of three Korean-Americans who had lived in California and Texas and wanted to start a Mexican restaurant in Seoul. Their Korean Mexican fusion restaurant with unique dishes like Kimchi Carnitas Fries, Galbi Tacos and Spicy Chicken Quesadillas quickly became wildly popular in Korea. The early indications are that Vatos Urban Tacos Singapore will catch fire as well.Read More »Vatos Urban Tacos Singapore – New KoMex Restaurant
New Restaurant 2015
New restaurants and cafes in Singapore opened in 2015 The Ordinary Patrons have discovered.
There are no witches or wizards in Patties & Wiches. It is a new casual restaurant in Ngee City selling mostly burgers and sandwiches, hence its name. Shoppers fighting the crowds at the Takashimaya sale can now rest their tired feet at this cafe on the third level. It is a pleasant space just next to the escalators on the Wisma Atria end of Ngee Ann City.
2015 is almost coming to an end. The Ordinary Patrons have had an another interesting and delightful year visiting many of the new & notable additions to the Singapore dining scene.
There were some many new eateries in Singapore that we could not possibly cover all of them even if we were to go to one every day of the year. You can view all the 2015 new restaurants we had visited by clicking on the New Restaurant 2015 tag. Here we share a list of The Ordinary Patrons’ favourite new restaurants – The TOP New Restaurants in Singapore 2015.Read More »TOP New Restaurants in Singapore 2015
Spago is a newly-opened Wolfgang Puck restaurant located at the Skypark of Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Singapore. This is chef Puck’s second restaurant in MBS (the first being ‘CUT). Skypark is the giant surfboard-like structure that is perched right at the top of MBS. The infinity pool looked amazing, but could only be used by the Sands’ hotel guests. People like us who were only there to eat could only look at the pool, en route to our lunch appointment. Spago exists in two forms here at MBS. As a casual bar & lounge at one end and a fine dining restaurant at the other. They have separate entrances.
Putien Restaurant @ Ion is located on the 4th level of the mall, opposite the large Crate and Barrel furniture store. The Putien Restaurant is a Chinese restaurant chain which took its name from a coastal suburb, Futian, in Fujian, China. They have quite a few branches in Singapore but our lunch at Putien Restaurant @ Ion Orchard was our first time. First impressions were good – they had differentiated themselves from other restaurants by their contemporary decor and a menu which contained more than the usual dishes.
The Prive ACM Cafe and the Empress Chinese restaurant are two eateries that the folks at the Prive Group are setting up at the Asian Civilisation Museum. The Empress Restaurant was not yet ready when we were there, but should be open by the time you read this post. We had lunch at the ACM Cafe which was fully operational. In fact it was also operationally full. This cafe could be a tourist attraction in its own right.
