10 New F&B Openings In Singapore In April 2019 – Includes Jenjudan, Sora Boru & Herit8ge

April New Restaurants

April is an eventful month with the opening of many new restaurants, cafés, and eateries, livening the food scene while famed overseas brands bring in exclusive Singapore-only menus.

The most exciting news this April has to be the launch of the highly-anticipated Jewel Changi Airport. Its whopping 112 dining spots include big international food names that are shaking up the country such as popular American burger franchise Shake Shack and A&W. In other parts of the island though are bursts of excitement for bubble tea fans and café hoppers both in town and in the West of Singapore.

Here is our line-up of 10 openings in April for interesting dishes such as Laksa Soufflé and Cheesy Beef Dons as well as some greatly missed Coney Dogs.



This greatly missed American fast food chain has finally made a comeback after leaving us for over a decade and we hope that they are here to stay. A&W is open round the clock with a menu that is “the first of its kind in Asia”. It features over 25 items, including their bestselling Coney Dogs and Curly Fries, along with a Cream Cheese Burger from A&W Okinawa.

The folks behind The Naked Finn have introduced a burger joint to the West with the launch of BugerLabo. The owner, Ken, believes the soul of a burger is in its patty and their off-the-menu McEgg exquisitely encapsulates this idea. A fast favourite is their Chicken Burger that has a chargrilled chicken leg that you can wash down with a Madagascan Vanilla Milkshake.
