Since 2019 is about to come to a closure, it seems fitting for us to grieve over our losses of acclaimed eateries that have sadly departed our local shores — including those that are about to roll down their shutters for good.
Given Singapore’s competitive F&B industry with high rental fees and ever-changing consumer tastes, it is no wonder many chains have gradually lost their appeal. Though we have witnessed the rise, then fall, of well-loved establishments, rest assured there will be new, upcoming ones that are sure to take Singapore’s market by storm again!
So, brace yourself for a rollercoaster of emotions, as we announce 11 iconic eateries that we bid sayonara to this year.
As many new overseas food concepts continue to excite us with their opening in Singapore, especially over at Jewel Changi Airport which is slated to open on 17th April 2019, there are several restaurants that are leaving our shores for good.
On 24th March 2019, the perennial favourite American grill bar, Chili’s, has permanently shut down all 3 outlets on our island.

Mention Chili’s and everyone will think of their tasty Southwestern American favourites. The large menu always spoils us with choices – from tantalising grilled baby back ribs to their signature quesadillas, and fajita, there is always something for everyone at Chili’s. I am especially enamoured of their grilled baby back ribs and molten chocolate cake. So, I am especially excited to hear that they have launched a new “Chillin’ and Grillin’” menu.
From 30 January 2013 through 9 April 2013, you can go to Chili’s – at Tanglin Mall, Resorts World Sentosa, JCube and their newest restaurant at Central @ Clarke Quay – and enjoy the new four dishes.

They include: a Chile Garlic-Rubbed Chicken – tender chicken breast seasoned with smoked paprika over our roasted jalapeno and corn salsa, topped with melted Jack cheese and drizzled with creamy cilantro aioli; Chile Garlic-Rubbed Ribeye – Juicy smoked ribeye steak seasoned with a garlic-chile rub, topped with chipotle pesto and green onions; Triple-Smoked Burger – the perfect burger topped with melted smoky chipotle cheese, crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato and red onion; and Smoked Chicken Jalapen?o Mac & Cheese – Penne pasta in a creamy Alfredo sauce, sharp cheddar cheese, jalapen?os and sliced tender pieces of smoked chicken.
Chili’s is a great for friends and family to gather for a casual and fun meal. If you haven’t been to Chili’s recently, it’s time to drop by for their new “Chillin’ and Grillin’” menu. Check out Chili’s website for more details.
