Now that the dust has settled on this year’s Michelin Guide Singapore reveal, we can turn our attention back to sussing out the new restaurants that our ever-growing F&B scene has to offer. This month sees the highly awaited launch of The Bird Southern Table & Bar (known as Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in its home base of Miami), which specialises in fried chicken with waffles and other comfort fare such as macaroni and cheese. Just one trip there will probably obliterate all of our ongoing diet plans, but we reckon it’ll be completely worth it.

Another restaurant we’re eager to visit is Tono Cevicheria, a Peruvian eatery serving up classics such as ceviche — a traditional raw fish salad cured in citrus marinade — and causa, a potato salad with Aji Amarillo chilli and lime. It’s founded by Daniel Chavez, chef-owner of Spanish restaurant Ola Cocina Del Mar, and its kitchen is helmed by executive chef Mario Malvaez alongside a team of Lima-trained Latin American chefs — so we’re expecting the food to be pretty legit.

This month also sees two skewers and cocktail bars setting up shop: Provisions, which also serves claypot rice, and Chikin — a Japanese-inspired joint that offers yakitori. Both sound equally promising, and we can’t wait to try out their range of Asian-inflected grub and tipples.
