80+ New Restaurants, Cafes and Bars in Singapore [Jul 2021]

After the latest period of lockdown, the number of new restaurants, cafes, bakeries, dessert bars and specialty food stores around town surged over the past month.

New players with a first outlet during June 2021, which are highlighted with a [NEW] prefix in the listing below, include Firangi, Cafe Kuriko and Brod & Paj.

There's also new outlets from Yakiniku Like (two), Matchaya and Hvala.

Our personal favourite, though, is Tigerlily Patisserie, serving up French sweet and savoury pastries with a local twist.
