They say that old is gold and that cannot be any more true with restaurants such as Roland Seafood—the birthplace of chilli crab—, Guan Hoe Soon and Shashlik Restaurant in Singapore have distinguished themselves as some of the most iconic restaurants in the country.
They’ve withstood the test of time, some having been around for almost a century—which says a lot about their cooking—and some going down as legends in Singapore’s culinary history. For a blast to the oh-so-delicious past, here is our list of 14 heritage restaurants in Singapore you need to visit before they’re gone forever.
After a full day of eating Pho and Bahn Mi, we were feeling guilty after gorging ourselves with that much delicious and hearty street food, so we knew we had to cleanse ourselves with something a little healthier. Just a stone’s throw away from Ho Chi Minh City’s very own “Stark Tower”, the Bitexco Financial Tower, sits one of the trendiest and most modern-looking cafés in District 1, The Running Bean.
We were first drawn to the chic architecture of the single-story building, reminiscent of South Korean-style cafés with geometric patterns lining the exterior of the building. The Running Bean is popular amongst a younger demographic and the entire compound is filled with Instagram-worthy backdrops for you to snap the perfect “OOTD”.
If you’re planning to take a short break before embarking on more adventures in HCMC, take a break at The Running Bean and lounge in one of their comfortable seats inside or al fresco.

When the news that The Marmalade Pantry was going to be shutting down its outlet at ION Orchard broke, many were disappointed—us included. Gone were the days of relaxing midday afternoon tea sessions with our friends after a bout of shopping, sipping freshly brewed tea and stuffing our faces with a smorgasbord of fanciful delights—or so we thought.
Set to make an official comeback after half a year sometime soon, this time as its flagship outlet, The Marmalade Pantry will soon open its doors once again at ION Orchard Level 4.
Feeling stoked? We sure as heck are!
The famous London dining concept Burger & Lobster is finally opening in Singapore on 20 May 2019 with its first outlet at Jewel Changi Airport.
This isn’t the restaurant chain’s first outlet in Asia—there’s one at Genting Highlands and another in Bangkok—but we are glad that there is no need to cross the borders anymore if we want to have a taste of their iconic grilled lobster and lobster roll.
Burger & Lobster Singapore will be located at the Canopy Park on Jewel’s topmost level. Changi Airport has just announced that Jewel Changi Airport will be opening on 17 April 2019, but the Canopy Park will be open to the public only in the middle of the year.

Cooked properly, a simple dish like ramen could have the makings of something absolutely soul-satisfying. A warm, hearty bowl comprising good quality noodles, succulent meat and an umami-dense broth, ramen is something that we could literally eat at any time of the day—especially late at night after several rounds of drinks.
From places that sell ramen with the most innovation to the ones that keep it as real as it should be, here is our list of 12 ramen restaurants in Singapore, so good that you’ll regret not finishing every last drop. Sit tight, because this is going to be one heck of a drool-inducing ride.

When you’re forced to stay up late either for work, or what not, late-night hunger pangs will strike inevitably, and that’s where we come in. Supper is a quintessential part of our diets (we’re not sorry) and as such, it’s our moral duty to always know where to go whenever we feel hungry at night.
The Eastern part of Singapore bustles with several late-night eateries, some well-known and some not so much. Whatever the case, you’re in luck because here, we have sussed 12 of the most highly raved night-time supper spots in the East.
