Singapore is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to food. From fine dining to regional specific, sustainable options to local hawker, there’s something for all tastebuds. To keep everyone on their toes, new eateries are constantly launching and well-established spots work hard to update their menus and provide new offerings. Here are some ANZA-approved foodie stand-outs with something new and exciting for the coming months. From afternoon tea to food by the sea, read on.


Straight into the top new dining options in Singapore with a bang is the Buffet Brunch every Saturday at Pan Pacific Orchard. This lovely and laid-back location now offers Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, appetisers, main courses and tableside service on the weekend at sophisticated Mosella restaurant. Feeling fancy, we opted for a mix of both the buffet and tableside service, ordering first from a selection of new appetisers which included Amelie Fine de Claire Oyster N3, 48 Months Iberico Ham, Spanish Crystal Bread, Tomato Burrata & Heirloom Tomatoes and Hamachi Tiradito.

The buffet spread is a thing of dreams with all manner of distinctive new food options which beg for way more than just one visit to the counter. (Does anyone just go up once?!). Meat lovers can opt for the Cochinillo Spanish Suckling Pig and Black Angus Beef Tenderloin. For fish fans, the Salmon Wellington is an absolute winner, accompanied by fresh vegetables and Mediterranean salad, using recipes influenced by countries within the region including Spain, Morocco, Italy and Greece. There’s an incredible handmade pasta selection and choice of base. The Spanish Paella, created with inspiration from Executive Chef Pedro Samper’s time in Valencia, gets its depth and flavour from a rich seafood stock infused into aged Spanish bomba rice (the “king of paella rice” FYI).

When it comes to dessert, the question is always whether to plump for a variety of European cheeses or a plate piled with mini bonbons, basque cheesecake, macarons, chia seed pudding, et al. Of course, we went for it all, including the Chocolate fondue. Accompanied by fine Champagne and live jazz, the new Saturday brunch at Mosella pulls out all the stops to become a firm favourite for families, groups of friends, and those looking for a relaxing weekend spot in which to unwind. Go now before it becomes the most booked-up brunch in town!

Prices start from $108++ per adult and $54++ per child aged 8-12 years old. Children below 8 dine free.

Just when you thought Coastes couldn’t get any better, it updates its menu! Sentosa’s go-to for beachfront vibes and delicious bites has refreshed its la carte offerings, giving us all the more reason to head down to Siloso with an empty stomach. If like us you find that being by the sea brings on an appetite, you will not be disappointed. Already treating us with an impressive array of breakfast, mains, burgers and snacky-snacks, the brand-new menu at Coastes offers new food options for those who are hungry!

New risotto flavours, made with top-notch Acquerello Italian rice include Chilli Crab, Orange & Thyme Chicken, and Tiger Prawn & Bacon, but it was the Chorizo & Baby Scallops which hit all the right spots as we sat with our feet in the sand. Equally as delicious are the new pasta recipes which include Truffle Sausage and Spinach Fettuccine, Pork Meatball Spaghetti, and Mushroom Aglio Olio. Both the risottos and pastas were deceptively light, leaving plenty of space for more.

And there’s so much more! Post-swim kids will love the Cheese ’n Shroom Pizza, Crispy Battered Prawns and the signature Singapore-style prawn paste, Coastes Golden Wings. For seafood fans there’s Garlic Prawns and a sophisticated Cured Salmon & Fennel with Cucumber Gazpacho. Desserts have not been deserted with newbies such as the Vanilla & Blackcurrant Panna Cotta and Strawberry Lava Cheesecake – a creamy and airy concoction resting on a caramelised white chocolate base. We needed to find our own place to rest after such a beachside bonanza – thankfully there were beachbeds nearby with our name on them!

Afternoon Tea options in Singapore are growing increasingly exciting – you never quite know how your cuppa and finger sandwiches are going to be presented – and there is nothing disappointing at Madisons at Pullman Hill Street Singapore. In line with the Pullman brand, The Grand Voyage Afternoon Tea appears in a beautifully monogrammed chest of drawers  – it has to be unlocked with a key before an onset of delighted oohing and ahhing! Guests are then taken on a gastronomic journey through elegant flavours in the shape of  bites such as Lobster, Oscietra, Apple Yuzu Mousse, and Raspberry Financier. There’s no more perfect pairing than one of 13 Dilmah tea flavours (or a nice glass of fizz if you feel like a party!).

But wait – there’s more. Last week Madisons launched The Grand Voyage Afternoon Tea, where guests can opt for a special ‘Artistry in Time Afternoon Tea’ at Madisons, an exclusive collaboration with the artist Alphonse Mucha Museum. Famous for his theatrical posters of botanical motifs and stylised lines, replicas of Mucha’s works are presently displayed across Pullman Hill Street Singapore and also immortalised in the sweet and savoury bites at this unique dining experience. ‘Artistry in Time Afternoon Tea’ features macarons depicting Mucha’s signature patterns, cakes that are embellished with Mucha-inspired buntings, and thematic bespoke cocktails. Arty, or what?!

Artistry in Time Afternoon Tea is available now until 31 July 2024, from $68++. The Grand Voyage Afternoon Tea returns in August from $68.
