Looking for something new this April 2017?
Here is a list of the hottest new restaurants you should try this April.
Opened only a few weeks ago, Hon 10 serves modern Japanese cuisine in a casual and artsy atmosphere. The restaurant has a sushi bar where diners can watch the chefs in action, while the main dining area is very much like a gallery with several art pieces from new and upcoming Japanese artists in display. If you love tempura, okonomiyaki and donburi, this is a spot you don’t want to miss (especially their Hokkaido Scallops and Prawn Okonomiyaki). Otherwise we recommend their unique fusion twists such as their Buffalo Karaage and Sesame Panna Cotta.

Ever tried Brazilian-Japanese street food? This niche restaurant has been highly anticipated and it’s finally here. The restaurant pays homage to the lively street vendors and the vibrant street food found in Liberdade, Sao Paulo. Despite what many might think, it is not exactly fusion, but a clear representation of what is actually sold in Liberdade. We recommend the Coxinha, a deep fried Brazillian morsel filled with chicken and okra. It comes with a homemade chilli sauce. The shape and feel of the Coxinha is very authentic.

Cafe 100 is Ritz Carlton’s first observation deck x cafe outlet. Enjoy your meal from the top of the world. This is a great place for a lovely dessert date on a clear sunny day. The cafe serves sweet favourites such as their soft ice cream made with fresh Hokkaido milk and their Banana waffles.

Si Simply Italian
Just like its name, this new Italian restaurant offers the full fine-dining-meets-trattoria experience with their concept of high quality Italian cuisine made with seasonal, organic and authentically Italian ingredients, but available in affordable prices. It’s a restaurant that feels homely and fine-tuned in the same time. So if you’re looking for a new regular Italian place, give this place a try. We recommend the Italian eggplant Parmigiana, the oven-baked Italian sea bass and the Italian octopus tentacle, with chickpea cream and thyme sauce. Italian classics with full authenticity.

New poke in town! You might have seen Aloha at Art Central selling bowls of this delicious Hawaiian food trend. Their poke is kept relatively simple-- the focus is on the fish, and less on the toppings. Their salmon yuzu miso is our favourite, filled with juicy bits of salmon, avocado and crispy shallots, all mixed in with a yuzu (citrus) miso sauce.
