We recently did a four-day trip in Singapore and explored a couple of eating places.
We chose to fly with Scoot Airline, which takes about 7 hours flying from Gold Coast to Singapore. We arrived around 3:30 (local time) in the afternoon. Our friend came and picked us up at the airport, then headed back to her apartment. Her apartment is near the IMM, which is Singapore’s largest outlet mall. So we decided to find a place in IMM for dinner and then SHOPPING!
There are quite a few food stands on the first floor, and we walked into a local noodle soup place cause the menu looks very attractive. 🙂 We ordered a Kampong chicken set and a bowl of curry noodle soup. The food was ordinary and the photos on the menu looked much better! 🙂
Anyway, our first day was more into the shopping fun and we were quite looking forward to the second day’s Yum Cha.
Crystal Jade is recommended by Lady Iron Chef – No1 food blogger in Singapore. The restaurant looks very up market and the food was very tasty. We really enjoyed it.
Today’s highlight was the 2am dessert bar. We met Janice Wong in person in Melbourne last year at Melbourne International Food and Wine Festival. She was a very talented pastry chef. Her signature dessert is called Cassis Plum. Luckily, we had the opportunity to taste this beautiful dessert and we also tried another her newly developed dessert – Chocolate H2O. Both desserts were amazing in their own ways.
Today’s schedule was lunch at Corner House, then paid a visit to National Gallery Singapore and caught up with friends at Raffles Hotel for drinks! Full on!
Corner House is a French restaurant and located in the beautiful Singapore Botanic Gardens. It just won Michelin 1 star in 2016. This restaurant only offers set lunch menu and the price is $60/pp for one starter, one main and one dessert.
After lunch, we did a nice walk in the Botanic Gardens. Everything is so green and pretty!
After the walk, we headed to the National Gallery Singapore, which provides the world’s largest public display of modern Southeast Asian art. It was great for us to spend a whole afternoon and experience a lot of brilliant exhibitions.
When we finished the tour, we felt a bit thirsty and decided to have some drinks on the rooftop bar – AURA. It was our lucky day! We were having a drink with splendid view in front of us!
For dinner, we went to the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel, where is the home of the Singapore Sling. The most interesting thing at this bar is guests can toss peanut shells onto the floor while enjoying the drinks. EXTRA FUN!
On the last day, we booked hightea at Grand Hyatt and planned to visit one of the most famous seafood restaurants.
10 Scotts Hightea@Grand Hyatt is recommended by Lady Iron Chef. We need to remind you, it is not just hightea, it is hightea BUFFET! Lots of food and unlimited drinks (coffee and tea).
Dinner was today’s highlight. We went to No Signboard Seafood which is famous for the white pepper crab. It was amazing! Check our photos!
