Restaurant Notes - Singapore

Jump to last reply

I've just returned form three weeks in Asia and spent four nights in Singapore. Singapore has a fabulous range of restaurants and I only had time to sample a few.

My intent had been to have lunch at Les Amis au Jardin, perhaps my favorite "special occasion" restaurant in Singapore. Unfortunately, they have stopped serving lunch at their Botanical Gardens location. They do offer lunch at their newer location (near the intersection of Scotts Road and Orchard Road). We did not go there, as we really wanted to eat at the gardens.

Another favorite restaurant is Doc Cheng's in Raffles. We had a wonderful lunch there. They have a lunch menu that allows tou to choose from a half a dozen first courses, half a dozen second courses and half a dozen desserts for S$35+++ for three courses. It's a fabulous deal.

We also at at a new Italian restaurant, Capella, located in Chijmes. The food was excellent, and they also had a lunch menu for S$35+++ for a three course lunch with almost as many choices as Doc Cheng's.

The third place we ate was called Jaan, located on the 70th floor of the Swisshotel (used to be the Westin). They offered a three course set lunch, you choose between two entrees, the first course and dessert are fixed, for S$50+++ (although they gave us a 20% discount - I don't know why). While the view is unbeatable, the food was very good, but not exceptional, and the choices were limited. Wines by the glass were very expensive here.
