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.

A few things may be glean from the Trending Restaurants & Cafes in Singapore Chart during COVID-19 Circuit Breaker in Singapore – people look for comfort food from familiar names such as Hua Yu Wee, Tim Ho Wan and Hong Kong Street Family Restaurant; – delivery and takeaway from affordable casual diners are in great demand; and if the food is good, it doesn’t seem to matter whether the eatery is located in an obscure bungalow in Bedok, a hip modern mall in Orchard or a shop house with no MRT station nearby and no convenient parking facilities.

Singapore imposed a COVID-19 Circuit Breaker from 7 April until 4 May 2020. The heightened safe-distancing measures include closure of schools and workplaces, except for those in essential services. All food and beverage outlets, such as restaurants, hawker centres, coffeeshops, food courts could remain open for takeaway or delivery only. In such unusual times, we have a unusual Trending Restaurants & Cafes in Singapore Chart. Fast food outlets, like Jollibee and Monga Fried Chicken, are unsurprisingly in the chart. Cheap and good food places also feature. A rather unexpected entry is Bread Yard, the local bakery which has just started online ordering and delivery services.
