Don’t know if Singapore is a high end Gastronomy State city, especially considering even Singaporeans are not sure about a particular local dish, but for sure you’ll find a lot of everything, Chinese, Indian, Malay, Thai, Western, etc.
So, if I had to line up some recommendations of places to eat and drink, it would go as follows… with ♥ as tested and approved and ∇ recommended but yet to be tested.
♥ Wild Honey (A) – Western brunches. Place is great, but it’s popular, so make sure you book or get in early! (and hot chocolate is very good)
♥ Merci Marcel (A) – If you’re French and craving for food from home, viennoiseries, cheese, croque monsieur, well theeeeeee best place !
♥ Forty Hands (A) – Place was nice, nothing special, but the food dude…!!!
♥ Symmetry – (sort of) Australien food, it’s actually a regular brunch place, but the restaurant in itself it really nice.
♥ Fika Café – (sort of) Swedish food. A bit over-priced, but the place is nice, the food is good and it’s in a very cool area!
♥ Sarnies – MmmMm that Avocado toast is sooo good !
♥ Clinton – Perfect place for Pancakes, if not the best.
♥ PS Café – on the high end price wise – the Raffles city one was nice, but don’t know if it’s that special that I would go back, but keen on trying the other locations.
♥ Old Hen Coffee – The savory is alright, but their real strength are their sweet touch and their cold brew coffee

∇ Artichoke – Middle Eastern food (reservation needed). Don’t know for brunch, but lunch there was delicious !

♥ Lau Pa Sat – Singapore’s most famous
