Formerly from Esquina, Andrew Walsh opens his own new restaurant, Cure at Keong Saik. The testimony of Walsh’s prowess is how he made me like the food despite my prejudice in the pairings. No gimmicks, no hipster concept, just good food.
Lepark, rooftop bar at Chinatown, serves good mod-sin street-food with affordable craft beers. Would return for more.
The Daily Roundup at The Working Capitol on Keong Saik Road started off as a working space and has evolved into one of the better cafes this year.

Which ones are good? And which ones over-rated?
Sydney-based Luxe, which is a cross between a cafe and bistro, opens at Keong Saik Road Singapore. Except for the lux prices, the cafe/bistro scores well across the board: good food, ambience, and service.
I’ve a feeling that Dorsett Hotel at Outram Singapore has learnt from their own past experiences and other hotels’ experiences to maximize comfort for travelers during the stay; it’s really quite a smart hotel. Compared to some 5-star hotels, I prefer the 4-star Dorsett because it’s chic, eclectic, convenient, comfortable, and high-tech.
Famed for American-styled comfort food at affordable prices, Meatliquor, the popular, edgy, cool London-based burger joint, is here at Duxton Hill in Singapore! And it’s a game-changer.
