The ever-evolving gastronomy scene in Singapore sees new restaurants springing up pretty much every other week. But one trend that has been particularly noticeable as of late is the the growing presence of Hong Kong-headquartered eateries here.

A key example is congee joint Mui Kee, which runs its flagship stall at Mong Kok and launched its maiden Singapore outpost in late March. Later this month, Peking duck restaurant Forbidden Duck and Qi — House of Sichuan, will open side-by-side inside Marina Bay Financial Centre. Another name to look forward to is Tsui Wah — a popular cafe chain with branches across Hong Kong, Macau and China — which will make its way to our shores later this year.

Apart from these Hong Kong establishments setting up shop here, April also sees a variety of new dining spots armed with diverse cuisines. One focuses on Mediterranean fare and seafood, while another is a Japanese eatery dedicated to different cuts of beef. And if you still can’t get enough of unagi, a new contender has sprouted up to join the likes of Man Man and Uya. Read on to find out more about these exciting new restaurants.
