When the two Integrated Resorts opened in 2010 - Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa - Singapore’s then-languid dining scene got a much-needed booster shot.

Almost overnight, the city-state became the city du jour for new openings as Michelin stars-studded chefs, wannabe restaurateurs and imported cooking talents scrambled for space to house their dream restaurants.

The trend continues. Jamie Oliver just opened a 250-seat Italian eatery at Vivo City, his first in Asia. Mario Batali recently announced plans to open Carnevino, his third food and beverage concept in the city.

Big name chefs aside, the scene is equally buzzy for indie operators - new small plate eateries continue to grab the spotlight, unfazed by the incessant stream of French, Italian and Japanese openings.

Not surprisingly, clusters of dining enclaves have popped up and this excitement has spilled over to Club Street, which is enjoying a revival after years of slumber.

Records from the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) show that 686 new eateries sprouted in Singapore last year. Staggering growth for a city with less than 3,000 restaurants.

We’ve combed them all and shortlisted just a handful of the best to open in the last year.

    While the above dish may taste good, it is easy to wonder what is in the appeal of using the main dish also as a serving plate for the salad and bread basket? At the end of the meal its also a trash bowl – silly little clam shells.

    The dish doesn't even give hint of what what city is was made in. Detroit, perhaps?

    This dish appears more like bar food than fine dinning.
    Mo' chowder Ma!

    And the article – an infomercial for another CNN infomercial.
