Pet ownership is getting increasingly tougher in Singapore. Regulatory zealousness is suffocating pet owners with either size restrictions for dogs or fear for the safety of your cats in public housing estates.
Unlike humans, our pets do not have the luxury of free will to leave as and when they like—having the need to spend most parts of their days cooped up at home awaiting our return.
Amidst all the rules and signs that bars pets from entering certain premises, there are a few establishments that will welcome you and your pets with wide open arms. Here are 15 Pet-friendly Cafes & Restaurants in Singapore That Both You And Your Pet Will Absolutely Adore.

Fat Belly is a new speakeasy-style steakhouse in Singapore that shares the same space with its sister brand and ice cream joint, Sugarhaus, at Serene Centre. It only opens in the evening, occupying the counter seats at the back of the ice cream parlour.
This 10-seater steakhouse is helmed by chef-owner Stanley Seow, who specialises in alternative, less well-known cuts of beef such as the Flat Iron, which is essentially a cut taken from the shoulder of a cow—generally much less tender than a tenderloin or even a ribeye but let us leave it to the expert to prove us otherwise.
With the opening of Hillview Community Club, residents and those who are working near the area now have more dining options apart from restaurants and cafes at HillV2. One cafe that stood out among the rest of the casual dining spots there is Kohi-Ya.
Opened by the team behind Ninepress who also runs Kyu Coffee Bar at Prudential Tower, Kohi-Ya offers Asian cuisine that comes with a Creative twist. Think udon served with Mentaiko sauce, wagyu beef balls doused in Japanese curry and more.
The gorgeous interior is also an added bonus, so remember to drop by this new cafe in the West of Singapore for a weekend brunch with your family or significant other! READ ON

Original Cake, Taiwan’s famous Castella cake shop, is opening its first outlet in Singapore on 23 September 2017 at 10.30am.
Original Cake is a well-known bakery from Taipei that specialises in Castella cakes. Staying true to their original recipe derived from tradition, they have since come up with new and innovative variations to trump the competition—namely their Frozen Chocolate version that is made with HERSHEY’s chocolate chips that we are all excited for!
Having only been established in 2010, they already have four outlets in Taiwan and eight outlets around Malaysia (3 in Penang, 3 in Klang Valley, 1 in Putrajaya and 1 in Johor Bahru); this is a true testament to their success and outstanding Castella cakes.
To celebrate its official opening, Original Cake will be giving away free 800 Castella cakes on 23 September 2017 (on a first-come-first-serve basis).
If you love Japanese yakitori and craft beer, then Toriki is a joint you should definitely check out.

Toriki is a affordable yakitori restaurant that even the Japanese palette will agree with and we are sure yours will too. With no GST & service charges, it just makes dining here even better.
