17. Joomak

Joomak could use a little love when people are discussing where the most authentic Korean restaurant in Singapore is.

Newly-opened at Beauty World Centre, Joomak serves authentic Korean Pig’s Trotter and Jeju Black pig.

Joomak’s Pig Trotters ($59) is only available in the original flavour. But if you’d like some variety, we recommend the Spicy & Regular Pig’s Trotters ($69).

Meanwhile, for KBBQ sets, we recommend Set C ($99). It includes both the Black Pork Belly and Collar, LA Short Rib and Steamed Egg, and a choice of stew. You can choose from Kimchi Stew, Soft Tofu Stew and Bean Paste Stew, which will be added in a small bowl in the middle of the grill.

Joomak

Location: 144 Upper Bukit Timah Rd, #04-01, Singapore 588177
Opening hours:
Monday: Closed
Tue-Sun: 11:30am–2:30pm, 5–10pm

18. Kebuke Singapore

Biscoff Black Tea Latte

A new bubble tea chain joins Singapore’s food scene!

Aptly named Kebuke, which translates to “thirsty or not?’ in Chinese, it’s one of Taiwan’s largest bubble tea chain, with over 200 outlets sprawled across the country.

With its first outlet in Taste Orchard, Kebuke Singapore continues to use premium high mountain tea leaves that are imported from Taiwan. While the menu is 80% similar to Taiwan’s, the Singapore outpost boasts two exclusive drinks: Biscoff Black Tea Latte and Rice Oolong Tea.

Location: Taste Orchard, 160 Orchard Rd, #01-11/12, Singapore 238842
Opening hours: 11am-10pm

19. Origin Grill at Shangri-La Singapore

Origin Grill Shangri La Singapore review Stone Axe Full Blood Wagyu Rump Cap Steak
Stone Axe Full Blood Wagyu Rump Cap Steak

Possibly one of the best — and definitely one of the most underrated — steakhouses in Singapore, we recommend heading down to Shangri-La Singapore’s Origin Grill for a meal this month.

While not a new restaurant entirely, they have just revamped their menu, featuring a more curated selection of steaks. Here, the Full Blood Wagyu is spotlighted. This means that their cows come from a 100% pure lineage of Japanese wagyu cows, resulting in more marbled and succulent cuts.

If you’re choosing your cut of steak here, we recommend the Stone Axe ($58), which utilises the rump cap, also known as the picanha. This cut of meat is firmer but way meatier, especially with that thick layer of fat cap wrapping the meat.

Read on to find out more about which appetisers to order. But if you’re looking for a romantic restaurant in Singapore for date night, this is it.

Origin Grill

Location: Shangri La Singapore, Lobby Level, Tower Wing, 22 Orange Grove Rd, 258350
Opening hours: 12–2:30pm, 6–10:30pm

20. Kubo x Tipsy Hippo

Homemade Cassava Crackers at Kubo

This contemporary Filipino restaurant that prepares their dishes in a traditional wood-fired oven will be setting up a pop-up at Tipsy Hippo, a Tiki-inspired gastrobar.

Indulge in brand new dishes like Curry Chicken and Potatoes, Soy-Glazed Pork Belly, Five-Spiced Brisket SlidersKubo’s Fried Chicken (“KFC”) and Roasted Banana Cannoli. And on the weekday afternoons, between 12pm and 3pm, enjoy affordable lunch sets priced from $12 to $15.

Lastly, to celebrate Kubo’s pop-up at Tipsy Hippo, diners will receive a free serve of Pork Crackling ($8) when they visit the Tipsy Hippo dressed in green, which represents both restaurants’ love for nature!

21. Ume Maru

Inspired by Jimbocho Book Town in Tokyo, you’ll find your very own speakeasy bar at Far East Plaza.

Ume Maru is a dual concept bar in Orchard — bento bar by day, craft whiskey and umeshu bar by night, with a whole bunch of Japanese manga to read between each sip.

Spotting this speakeasy cocktail bar is no difficult feat. Simply look for floor-to ceiling shelves of manga and graphic magazines on the fifth floor of Far East Plaza, and push past it.
