Top New Restaurants and Shops at VivoCity

The fourth and largest boutique of Spanish label Bershka, known for its on-trend, casual looks, is a bright, modish space that houses more menswear items than its other outlets.

Jamie’s Italian
It might be a little overhyped given that back in the UK it’s a reliably affordable chain with more than 30 outlets, but Jamie’s Italian—Jamie Oliver’s first Singapore project—is already backed with a waiting list lasting week. The large space—which has a clear sea view—serves up affordable everyday eats, which are very similar to the chain’s offerings worldwide. There’s Jool’s Favourite Sicilian Tuna Fusilli (from $14), a briny bowlful of house-made pasta, slow-cooked albacore and cinnamon breadcrumb topping, plus grilled chicken with pizziola tomato sauce ($28).

Magnum Singapore Pleasure Store
Ice-cream company Magnum will run this pop-up at VivoCity through November 30 (daily 11am-10:30pm). The store will feature plated Magnum desserts—including Goldfinger ($11), a Magnum, crepe, gold nuggets, nuts and chocolate sauce, and A Midsummer’s Night Dream ($18), a Magnum, edible flowers, berries and white chocolate—as well as Magnum cocktails like A Magnum Sunset ($16), orange juice, Galliano, Bols Triple and Magnum.

The Chop House
This gastrobar is a project by the folks behind Wooloomooloo Steakhouse. It’s a spacious On the menu are starters like mussel soup ($10), grills such as steaks (from $27) and a Berkshire pork chop ($32) as well as a giant beef shank ($140), which serves four to six people. There are also hearty burgers including The Chop House pork burger ($22) with Asian seasonings: chilli, ginger and coriander. Drink-wise, they’ve got SelfTap Beer system with five taps. (You can buy beer with a stored value card, which you tap against the reader before pulling your own pint.)
