Famous Hong Kong Wonton Mee Mak’s Noodle is closing its last outlet in Singapore at The Centrepoint on 28 Feb 2021.
The Salted Plum is closing both outlets at Circular Road and Suntec City on 13 Dec 2020.
Known for its affordable Taiwanese-style meals and Taiwanese “tapas” that are priced at S$5, S$10 and S$15, The Salted Plum is one of our go-to places for Taiwanese food in Singapore and we are sad to share this announcement.
Sum Yi Tai—which houses 3 concepts over 3 storeys in a conservation shophouse—is another Covid-19 casualty.
Sum Yi Tai was a popular hangout spot in the CBD which offered dim sum lunch and tapas-style dishes in a crimson-lit gangland bar. It has shut down its establishment at 25 Boon Tat Street because of the high rental in the CBD.
2020 has been a bad year for everyone, period.
Most industries in Singapore have been badly hit by the pandemic, which has left many of us scrambling to save our sinking boats. The F&B sector especially has suffered and things got worse when the Circuit Breaker was put in place, restricting people from dining out and patronising these establishments.
Aside from COVID-19, many of these F&B ventures have also decided to close for other reasons such as the end of their lease. Whatever the case, we are sad to see these places go and we hope that better opportunities will come their way soon.
With that, here is a list of F&B outlets in Singapore that have closed their doors in 2020.
It’s an open truth — F&B businesses have not been having the easiest time during this COVID-19 period. With everybody staying in and the decreased footfall, there has been a massive plunge in sales in the F&B sector.
Even though many establishments have pushed out delivery and takeaway services, some have not been able to tide through. Whether it was the high rental costs or low profits, these burdens were too heavy to bear.
Here is a list of 30 F&B businesses in Singapore which are planning to or have already shut down for good during COVID-19. Nevertheless, we hope that this is not goodbye forever and we’ll see them come back stronger than ever.
