Trending Restaurants & Cafes in Singapore

Taking a page from Google Trends, we thought we can try to gauge the prevailing interest in a particular restaurant or café in Singapore by the current popularity of our restaurants & cafes posts and reviews. Our chart of the Trending Restaurants & Cafes in Singapore lists the eateries that have been attracting the most interest in the last 7 days.

The list is not a measure of the overall popularity of the various eating places but is an indication of the relative popularity of our blog posts with regard to those places. Such a list may be only somewhat useful now and we will need to improve the way the list is constructed over time. Nevertheless, it is a start and we hope it can become a convenient and helpful reference tool. Afterall, Google started when two students had an idea for a search engine and worked on it a dorm room.

Trending Restaurants & Cafes in Singapore

We will just list the trending restaurants and cafes with links to our blog posts, where you will find information and photos of the eateries. We will update the chart periodically.

The new Social Place in Forum The Shopping Mall remains firmly at the top of the Trending Restaurants & Cafes in Singapore Chart. Another new restaurant, Wursthans Switzerland, has also attracted lots on interest. Old favourites, Colony at the Ritz-Carlton and Rise at MBS, remain in the Top Ten – perhaps a reflection of Singaporeans’ love for buffet.
