What to do for lunchtime in Singapore? That was the big question. And our friend Laurence had the answer: Let’s go for authentic Cantonese cuisine. While I first thought we would hence go to a nearby foodstall (nothing wrong with that), I was pretty amazed when I discovered the setting of Lei Garden: it is more reminiscent of a glorious last century Parisian Brasserie than the (albeit clean) streets of Singapore. And more than that: it is part of a chain of Chinese restaurants whose Hong Kong affiliates have partly been awarded a Michelin Star ( I only found out later).
After having had a huge load of street Food in Malaysia, we agreed on a saturday evening it was time again to indulge some fine dining and at the same time test the Singaporean gastro-scene. We quickly decided on Tippling Club whose google results, depicting a modern take on food, cocktails and restaurant design spontaneously inspired us.
As our trip to Malaysia also included a weekend in Singapore, we seized the opportunity for a fine dining experience, simply because there is a much bigger choice for such type of restaurants as compared to Kuala Lumpur.
