Singapore Cafes and Restaurants

Cherry Garden (The Oriental Hotel)
Cantonese, Hainanese, Hunan and Sichuan. Teh decor is modeled after a Chinese village, and the subdued atmosphere makes a nice contrast to the usual bright red and gold and clamor of most Chinese restaurants.
Tables seat six to 12 people each, so it's a good place for dining with big groups hungry for quality Chinese food in a relaxed atmosphere. The shark's fin soup, fish soup and Sichuan prawns are excellent. The attentive staff also makes dining here a very pleasant experience. Open daily noon-2:30pm, 6:30-10:30pm.


Chinatown / Tanjong Pagar
The original area designated for the Chinese stood in very much the same space Chinatown occupies today. With painstaking preservation of the area's rich architectural heritage, this is an ideal setting for trying both age-old recipes and newly-created ones.
Dress is smart casual and most places are open throughout the day. Take the MRT to Tanjong Pagar.


Lau Pa Sat
Lau Pa Sat means "old market" in Mandarin. This was formerly a wet market, but it's been scrubbed and restored in the '80s.
What you see now is a food market beneath a stunning Victorian structure. You can find anything here, from chicken rice to masala dosai to katsudon. And a meal can be had for under $10. Lau Pa Sat is best visited in the evenings when the heat and humidity is less stifling.
In addition, satay peddlers push out their pushcarts from 7pm daily, bringing you freshly barbecued meat-on-a-stick along a lane called Boon Tat Street. Lau Pa Sat is located along Robinson Road and Boon Tat Street.


MEZZA9 (Grand Hyatt)
Since mezza9 opened late last year, this massive 450-seat dining destination has created constant buzz. The manager is truly apologetic when he says the restaurant is fully booked for the next three weeks.
That's why those who manage to get a table never want to leave. It's as if mezza9's interior designer borrowed Issey Miyake's brains and transplanted them here. It's zen and chic at the same time.
The idea of having separate food stations located throughout the restaurant is not new, but it works well in a space this big. You can sit anywhere, order Japanese, Italian, Chinese then join in the surrounding liveliness or surrender to the clean, serene atmosphere. Open daily noon-2:30pm (last seating), 6-10:30pm (last seating).


With such a picturesque place to dine, no wonder so many restaurants thrive in the Riverside are. Two sections dominate the area, Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. Within these secitons you'll find festive ambience and a world of good food.
Restaurants are generally open from lunch onwards and the dress code is typically casual. Take the MRT to Raffles Place and you'll be a two-minute walk from Boat Quay and a five-minute boat ride from Clarke Quay.


Thanying (Amara Hotel)
Hidden amid the gaudy lights, banners and signs hanging around Clarke Quay is Thanying, a resplendent showcase for some of the best Thai food in Singapore.
Remember to save room for the rainbow dessert buffet-15 varieties of sweets. Open Tue-Sun 11:30am-3pm, 6:30-11pm.
