• Inspired by the classic New York luncheonette, newly opened Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (# L1- 80, South Promenade) has over 20 craft beers that can be enjoyed to 80s and 90s hip-hop beats. The menu features burgers, salads, snacks and vegan options, but the star of the show here is the open milkshake bar, where you can choose from over 15 milkshakes, including eight of Black Tap’s signature gravity-defying Crazyshakes. • New cocktail bar
78 Alkofelic (6 Purvis Street, # 01- 01) marries the love of coffee with alcohol. The unique menu includes a list of signature coffee cocktails like the Old Fashioned Coffee ($15) – double espresso, bourbon, bitters, brown sugar – and Ice Boozy Alkofee ($15), made with Kahlua, hot coffee and Irish cream. • Family-friendly burger joint Three Buns by Potato Head has opened at The Quayside (60 Robertson Quay), offering fan favourites from its Keong Saik outlet, plus brand new burger creations with Asian twists, a new ice cream sandwich and weekend brunch. • Duxton Hill has welcomed Rizu (39 Duxton Hill), which offers a mix of traditional and contemporary Japanese fare alongside a selection of sakes, wines and craft beers. Seafood sashimi is the focus here, but there are also other options like signature sushi rolls and rice bowls.
Previously known as Odd One Out, Hej Kitchen & Bar (180 Orchard Road) is the latest addition to Peranakan Place. Tuck into casual grub like crispy chicken crackling ($ 15) – bite- sized, deep fried chicken skins with a fragrant ginger-rojak dressing – and Nasi Goreng Istimewa ($18), an Indonesian-styled fried rice, at the cosy alfresco diner.
