New Restaurants and Cafes in Singapore 2017

Song Garden Dim Sum Lunch, Mercure Singapore Hotel at Bugis

Mercure Singapore Bugis is a relatively new hotel in Singapore.  Song Garden is the Chinese restaurant at Mercure Bugis which opened around early 2017.  It is apparently helmed by veteran chefs. According to a Straits Times article, Chef Wong Shea Nung used to work at Hong Kong’s famous Fook Lam Moon restaurant and the dim sum chef also hails from Hong Kong. We had a Song Garden dim sum lunch recently.

PS.Cafe Raffles City

PS.Cafe Raffles City is another new PS Cafe to open in Singapore. We were impressed by the interior design of PS.Cafe Fullerton opened a few months earlier. The new cafe in Raffles city is another gorgeous dining space. Designed as a house within a building, PS.Cafe Raffles City is located in the sunlit atrium and has, besides their signature live plants and floral arrangements, a vertical garden behind the bar.

Hans im Glück Singapore – forest in a city in Orchard Road

Hans im Glück creates a forest in a city (not in Forest City but right in the heart of Singapore’s Orchard Road). The German Burgergrill is named after the fairy tale “Hans in Luck” (or Hans im Glück in German) by the Grimm Brothers. Walk into Hans im Glück Singapore and you walk into a restaurant resembling a German forest with birch logs installed in the beautifully decorated space. Its thick menu, which looks like a fairy tale book, offers burgers for vegetarians, vegans and die-hard meat eaters.

MYO Restaurant, Shenton Way Singapore

We had lunch at the new MYO Restaurant in Oxley Tower along Robinson Road (the road that runs between Cecil Street and Shenton Way) Singapore. Its exact name is MYO Restobar and is run by the people behind Kia Hiang restaurant in International Plaza. Those of us who do not work in the financial district of Singapore probably do not know of this building. It is a small building near the junction of McCallum and Robinson Roads. The building only has season parking. Diners to the MYO Restobar need to look elsewhere. Parking at the nearby SBF Building was the solution that we took. MYO takes up the whole of the 19th floor, which is low by Shenton Way standards.  Most of the view out of the big windows looks out at other buildings.
