Everyone likes to eat well while on vacation, right? Well I did just that: I ate A LOT of good food and tried out a bunch of new places while back in Singapore for Christmas. Maybe it was the festive Christmas/New Year season, or I was just so happy to be on vacation, so I kept eating and collected a ton of snapshots on my phone. :) [See my Singapore vacation diary here!]
This is my first time sharing a blog post filled with just food, but hey, why not? It seemed like a fun idea! (P.S. I must add a “disclaimer” that I do not eat like this on a regular basis LOL, this was truly a vacation where I just pigged out. ;) ) I’ve added brief details and links to all the places, if you’ll like to check them out too!
A casual and pretty place serving Western food in Rochester Park area, located inside Park Avenue Hotel. I had the fanciest tray of English Breakfast tea here (see photo below).
I really like Ding Hing Kitchen for very good Chinese food! My family and I usually go for their Cantonese cuisine, but they also offer a variety of Singaporean Chinese and Southeast Asian dishes.
High quality Cantonese cuisine that is so very good, but also pretty expensive. Great for special occasions/vacation meals. Yum. :) I really enjoyed this dish of fish meat noodles and lobster!
This place is a floating restaurant inside a replica of a steamboat! See a few snapshots of the restaurant in this post! We tried their baby back ribs.
A new casual eatery serving Western style food that was introduced to me by my friend. Pick A Boo is already gaining popularity as a place that serves affordable cafe food, but in a food court! I tried their signature waffle burger, which I definitely recommend! (My snapshot is not very clear, but click here to see better images/videos.)
I was introduced to this place too, and they serve healthy and nutritious bento meals. I never knew healthy meals could taste so yummy. Like. :)
Brunetti is a cafe restaurant serving Italian style food and desserts, but is actually from Australia. We bought a box of mini desserts for a dinner gathering. :) It was pricey, but worth it!
Trying Singaporean desserts that some family friends shared with us and I tried nonya kueh for the first time! I didn’t catch the name of the store, but it’s apparently a pretty well known place located in the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood.
Enjoying some mini cheese tarts and BBQ pork buns along with more Cantonese food.
Read as “omo-omo-don”, this place serves fusion Korean-Japanese rice and noodle bowls. My friend and I chanced upon them when looking for dinner options and I really like them! You can pick from their menu of bowls or customise your own. I had the “Chick Chat”, served in a huge dish with a generous portion.
I’m pretty sure this place has been around for a while now, and I love the open setting of the cafe inside a mall, but I think this might actually be my first time here! I had their waffle burger, which doesn’t look great in my hasty photo, but it was yummy. I think waffle burgers are my new favourite thing. ;)
This place is my childhood. And my teenage years. This place hasn’t changed a bit and I love them for it. It’s a family run business and I went back during both my summer and winter trips last year and Uncle and Auntie still remembered me and my family! They are so friendly and as for the food, Waffletown makes the best fried chicken and waffles, you have to try it. P.S. Blog post about Waffletown coming up soon!
Exploring Singapore through eating, we drove all the way to Changi to eat here! I had some Peking duck and satay, the first in the longest time! Yummy.
Hong Kong Street Family Restaurant (香港街餐馆)
My family and I had a plate of Singapore’s famous chilli crab here and it was really good! I have no idea if they’re known for it, but we paid S$50+ (which is cheaper than some other places I’ve been to) for this plate and the portion was very generous!
My last meal (other than the kaya toast breakfast at the airport) in Singapore was at Ambush, where they serve European dishes! I had that giant burger heeheehee and I ate it all. :)
Hope you enjoyed this food diary as much as I loved revisiting all the food I ate!
