Green Common

Restaurants Vegan Raffles Place

Green Common is a new, one-stop-shop for all plant-based needs. The multi-purpose concept store was first started by the Green Monday Group in Hong Kong, as a way to promote mindful eating. And its opening at VivoCity marks Green Common’s first outlet in Southeast Asia. Browse an extensive menu where meat-alternatives are being used to create dishes pulled from a variety of cuisine: pizza, noodles, local street food, and more. Then, swing by the retail section and shop from over 50 different plant-based brands.

Hashida Singapore

Restaurants Japanese Raffles Place

Hashida Singapore has found a new home, once again, after moving from its previous location at Mandarin Gallery and Mohamed Sultan Road. But the man behind the restaurant – chef Kenjiro ‘Hatch’ Hashida – remains just as committed to serving up a stellar dining experience since he first opened his eponymous restaurant back in 2013. Walk through the torii gates, and pull up a seat in one of the three impressive dining halls.

Rrooll

Restaurants Bakeries Changi?

Here’s the latest concept to roll into town: a specialty cinnamon bun kiosk. Rrooll, which makes its debut at Jewel Changi Airport, is dedicated to the humble cinnamon roll – served in ways both classic and novel. The classic cinnamon ($3.40) comes dusted with premium spice sourced from Korintje, Indonesia; while those with a sweet tooth can sample the fluffy bread topped with apple compote ($3.40), ground hazelnut ($3.40), and cocoa with orange ($3.40). Savoury creations are worth a try, too. There’s Japanese curry ($3.90) stuffed with chicken ham, garlic onion and cheese ($3.40), and Hawaiian ($3.90) that comes mixed with tomato sauce and pineapple chunks.

Persea

Restaurants Tanjong Pagar

Keto-friendly dishes aren’t exactly known to be tasty and delicious. But Persea hopes to change that perception. This new restaurant at Ann Siang Road comes with a low-carb, high-fat menu that changes up every few months. For its debut, look forward to Mediterranean sharing plates of puffed pork skins ($6), calamari dressed in zhug ($24), pork belly served with Moroccan curry ($24), and more. There’s even a QR code at the back of the menu that displays the nutritional breakdown of the food consumed. And don’t leave without a cocktail or two; each drink comes specially concocted without sugar and carbs, so even those on a keto diet can imbibe.

Bonding Kitchen

Restaurants Peranakan Orchard

What started out as a successful private home dining business in Malaysia has since evolved into a standalone restaurant at Orchard Gateway. Chef-owner Danny Chew wanted to open a space where people could come together and bond over hearty Nonya grub. Over at Bonding Kitchen, looking forward to time-tested recipes, including the Hokkien lor ark and sotong masak hitam, served alongside modern plates of wagyu rendang and buah keluak fried rice.

The grounds of the old Telok Kurau Primary School has been given a new lease of life with a new café, The Brewing Ground. The glasshouse-inspired interior feels warm and bright, and the menu features all-day brunch plates including a burrata and tomatoes tartine, The Breakfast Burger made with a pork sausage patty and scrambled eggs, and an unexpected Eggs Benjamin where eggs come served with beurre blanc instead.
