Despite the new restrictions on dining-in, Singapore’s gastronomy scene doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
This month, we’re seeing new ways to deliver fine dining service to guests, as well as new openings to look forward to when we’re allowed to head back into restaurants again. Read on for all the dining news you need to know this month.

Saint Pierre brought a deluxe omakase bento box to diners at home last year during Circuit Breaker (and this time during the Heightened Alert of Phase 2). But no, they’re not stopping there. They’ve recently launched Room Service, a fuss-free, exquisite dinner experience tailored for a family of four to five. Here, each guest is made to feel as though they’re indulging in a personalised “room service” in the comfort of their home. The multi-course meal will be personally delivered to the guest’s house, with all the dishes cooked, prepared and plated on exquisite tableware at the restaurant prior to delivery — no reheating or washing (plates will be collected the next day) required. From starters like the hairy crab and avocado to the mains such as the Wagyu beef served with spring vegetable and wasabi jus, Room Service is set to be just like dining at Saint Pierre, except you can dine while wearing your bedroom robes with zero judgment.
This exclusive experience will be limited to 12 deliveries a day, only available for dinner service on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Orders must be placed at least two days in advance.
Burnt Ends has announced that it will be moving out of its Teck Lim Road home after eight years at the locale. The wildly popular Michelin restaurant has not revealed when the exact move will be, but we’ve heard from the grapevine that the new location is set to be in Dempsey. During this Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) period, they will be serving diners for islandwide takeaway and delivery here.
The exciting news of The World’s Best Restaurant coming to Singapore broke out mid-April this year, and the response from the public has been more than encouraging. Yet, in light of the new restrictions, Mirazur has announced that it be extending its three-month residency at Mandala Club from 13 August to 4 September this year.
This just in: the creators of the cruffin (that’s a portmanteau for croissant and muffin, in case you were wondering), Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, is setting up their first flagship store in Southeast Asia right here on our island. The Australian-based brand is scheduled to open come June 2021 along Scotts Road, within a street-facing unit at Pacific Plaza. Diners can expect a selection of their seasonal doughnuts, croissants and the cruffins, best paired with a coffee, tea or kombucha for good measure.
