10 New Restaurants & Cafés In March 2019

March Restaurants And Cafes

New places continue to excite our palates and although café hoppers may be expressing some boredom with the food scene but maybe this March’s openings will perk some of you up.

This month, we’ve got African-themed cafés, intricately made-to-order pastries, and London’s famous Flat Iron Steaks that wow us. Here’s our compilation of new cafés and restaurants to drop by this March!

Duckland Group Shot

DUCKLAND

To all duck aficionados, prepare your stomachs for Duckland which prides themselves on using ducks from Silver Hill Farm in Ireland —the ‘wagyu’ breed of ducks. Expect duck meat here to be especially succulent, tender and robust. A must-get is their signature Roast Irish Duck (S$28 for half, S$50 for whole) that melts in your mouth with a range of dips. Their Duck Confit & Waffle (S$20), Black Pepper Duck Pie and Tomato-Pineapple Duck Pie (S$6 each) won’t disappoint.

ELEVEN STRANDS

Eleven Strands is the latest Italian and French dining concept in Serangoon launched by the team behind South Union Park. They’ve revitalised the defunct space left behind by Kombi Rocks Diner with nautical-inspired décor and golden molecular chandeliers. With 13 options of pasta, they’re no doubt doing what they’re good at. Choose anything from garlicky Bacon Aglio Olio (S$19) to tomato-based Beef Bolognese (S$21). White Crabmeat Pasta, Short Rib Pasta, and weekend-only brunch, Smoked Salmon & Avocado, are some of their features.

LEE’S CONFECTIONERY

Deep in Jurong East, Lee’s Confectionery is a spot in the heartlands that introduces French haute pastry to the West. This patisserie is named after Lee Yin Quan who assembles his elegant creations upon order. Jiao (S$8) is like a traditional banana cake upgraded to a pretty pastry. It’s made of banana sponge, banana compote, and creamy mascarpone on a base of cinnamon oat crumble. For a twist to your Singaporean breakfast, Puff (S$7) is an earl grey-infused kaya clasped between pastry puffs.

LITTLE OASIS
For fresh bakes and healthy nosh, Little Oasis is a cosy refuge in Everton Park for some calm respite away from roads nearby. The café began as an online home bakery called The Little Wooden Table which uses less sugar and natural flavouring and offers craft-your-own cakes. They specialise in chiffon and pound cakes so try their Banana Yoghurt Loaf (S$4.50), Lemon Drizzle Cake (S$6.50), and Early Grey Lavender Chiffon Cake (S$2.50) to name a few. There’s healthy soba, bagels, waffles, and salads too.

MICRO BAKERY & KITCHEN

If you’re on the hunt for artisanal bakeries, Micro Bakery & Kitchen is a new spot that took over The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough at Bukit Timah. The previous partner of previous owners Chalith and Nur has continued the business with little change to the philosophy of making small batches of handmade bread. Most customers might not even have noticed the difference. Get sandwiches like Grilled 3-cheese with Seuerkraut or House Ricotta, both at S$12, and check out their board for fresh bakes of the day.

The Feather Blade

For eight weekends straight across March and April 2019, The Feather Blade will bring you odd cuts executed perfectly, closely resembling that of London’s renowned £10 Flat Iron Steaks to Singapore. You’ll find these guys at Zui Hong Lou on Club Street. Get a cut known as the flavourful flat iron, aka the feather blade, which is the shoulder blade of the cattle. At S$21++ for 200 grams, it’s very good value. This pop-up concept is inspired by chef and founder, Sheen Jet Leong, who worked at Soho’s Flat Iron steakhouse in London for a time.

Voyage Patisserie

VOYAGE PATISSERIE

You’ll find Voyage Patisserie hidden snugly in a stretch of shophouses along Outram Road with zi char and steamboat restaurants for neighbours. Chef Jonathan officially opened their doors on 22 February with Cynthia (S$9) as their signature cake. It’s named after his girlfriend and the sweet story behind it is that it’s the first “rose” he gave to her. Try their gorgeous Flor de Passion or Louis XV for some bitter cocoa. If you get a surge of cake cravings at night, Voyage Patisseries opens till midnight from Fridays to Sundays.
