Restaurant Recommendations- From Singapore with Love

Singapore has almost become second Home for me. It’s a Modern and Happening City with a wonderful nightlife,superb brands to shop, warm and friendly people and fantastic places to eat There are some Restaurants you shouldn’t miss from Singapore

1)Crystal Jade: Authentic Chinese/Cantonese Cuisine
The Food and Ambience is Mind blowing.This is a Chain of Restauarants spread all over Singapore and serve authentic Chinese food.I never used to like the Chinese food that restaurants in India serve.But the kind of food they serve here changed my psysche about Chinese food. Don’t Miss the Dimsums.I tried both the Pork and the vegeterian ones.The Noodles and Fried rice were superb too.The starers were great although I don’t remember the Chinese names.Most important,they serve fantastic Chinese tea to sip in between meals. I tried eating with Chopsticks and believe me it was fun.The Chinese staff was happy to see an Indian woman like me savouring the cuisine the traditional way

2)Thai Express:Thai Cuisine
I go to this place each time I go to Singapore.The food is very nice. Right from Tom Yum Soup,Fried Prawns,Phad Thai(traditional Noodles),to Thai Curry and Rice the food rocks.Also,don’t miss the Tender Coconut Water which they serve with the Coconut itself.The taste is a little different from what we get in Bombay or Goa

3)Original Sin: at Holland Village. Mediteraanean Cuisine
This one is for all the is located in the quiet and yet posh area of Holland Village.Among the very few Restauarnts serving vegetarian food They have Greek ,Italian and other typical Mediterrrainean Food. I tried the Pumpkin Soup,Vege Platterr and Risoto.Also they serve greek dips like Tchachiki etc You can always ask the staff to describe the contenst of all food and then chose what you want as per your specifications

4)Marakkesh ,at Clarke Quay ,Moroccan and Arabic Cuisine
It’s a Moroccan Lounge bar at one of the most happening locations,Clarke Quay.The Ambience makes you feel you are in the Middle East.They have Arabic style seating and also have swinging seats.Also they play the Arabic Music in background and there are Sheeshas and Hookas all over too. The Platter which we ordered was nice.We ordered for 3 dips hummus,moutabel and Zaalouk, some falafel type tikkis and some Pita bread The food was good,so many new things.I don’t remember the exact names but you can always ask the staff to serve you authentic food as per your choice

5)Tratorria : at Orchard Road , Italian Cuisine
This one has the traditional Italian food and since Italian food is my personal favourite I had everything in the course from Soup,Starters,Salads,Main Course of Lasagna and Tiramisu. Its straight Italian food and superbly tasty

6)Komalas,at Little India, South Indian Cuisine
This one will be very useful for you once you are tired of eating the Chinese,thai,Italian blah blah. The restaurant is located in little India Area very close to the famous Mustafa Shopping Centre and is the low priced high quality South Indian food place.You get everything from Dosas,Idlis,uthappa .I guess I need not recommend what to eat as all the food is equally great.

7)The Soup Spoon, at Raffles Place, Soups ,Dips, Sandwiches and Salads
It’s a restaurant specilising in soups, and delis.It has outlets all over Singapore but I have been to the only place in Raffles Place.Raffles Place is the Office are and everyone is looking for quick bites here. Though its soup, one set meal will make u really full. The mushroom soup is thick and the best.Tomato soup and Pumpkin soup are next..Also they have good sandwiches and wraps.Try the Sandwich in Focacia bread.One of the best things to try is the Caeser Salad which is one of the best I had till date.I also tried the Ice tea which was good too
