PS.Cafe has launched Jypsy, which offers contemporary casual Japanese cuisine.

The menu at the 65-seat restaurant is designed to be shared and starts with grilled Robata Sticks, Sushi Rolls and Sashimi.

The grilled robata sticks, such as the teriyaki-glazed Pork Belly ($12++, above), are single-serve grilled bites that come with a selection of chef's housemade sauces.

Signature dishes are Smoked Mackerel Sushi Roll ($14++), with truffle ponzu mayonnaise, and Jypsy Bluefin Tuna Sashimi ($24++), with bluefin tuna, shichimi furikake and avruga caviar.

Hot and cold small plates include Nest of Fries ($11++) - an ode to the kakiage dish of tempura chopped vegetables and also Jypsy's take on PS.Cafe's iconic truffle fries.

All Day Bowls include udon goreng ($19++), wok-fried thin udon noodles with Jypsy chilli sambal and teriyaki pork belly skewer; and Smokey Unagi Fried Rice ($22++), with grilled unagi.

For dessert, diners can expect Japanese-inspired ones such as the Watermelon Granita ($9++), with calamansi jelly; and Yuzu Tofu Cheesecake ($10++).

The Colonial Club takes diners on a gastronomic journey through Singapore's rich culinary heritage.

Patrons at the restaurant, which can accommodate 70 to 80 people, will find a mix of heritage cuisines, which include Hainanese-style Western offerings, Nonya dishes and local favourites with British colonial influence.

One of its signatures is the Straits Nonya Laksa with Soft Shell Crab ($18.90++). For this dish, the chefs visited Melaka to pick up tips from local chefs working in famous eateries.

There is also the Signature Colonial Club Nasi Lemak ($15.90++, above) - the restaurant's version has fragrant blue pea rice and short-rib rendang.

The Colonial Style Oxtail Stew with Toasted Baguette ($15.90++) is a classic dish that takes many hours to cook and features potatoes and carrot in a thick and rich gravy.

Do not miss the Colonial Style Hainanese Chicken Chop ($15.90++), which features pan-fried, cracker-crusted chicken thigh drenched in an in-house tomato Worcestershire sauce.

Where: 03-33 Departure Hall, Changi Airport Terminal 3, 65 Airport Boulevard
