New Restaurants, Cafes and Bars in Singapore [Oct 2021]

We highlight more than 50 new restaurants, cafes, bakeries, dessert bars and specialty food stores that have opened around town over the past month.

New players with a first outlet during September 2021, which are highlighted with a [NEW] prefix in the listing below, include Stay Gold Flamingo, Hamamoto and Dewgather.
