The Ordinary Patrons

The Ordinary Patrons write primarily about Singapore restaurants, cafes and other food & beverage establishments we visit – giving our frank opinion about the food, service, atmosphere of the place and whether we think the prices give good value. We show you photos we took ourselves. We visit an eatery just as the average customers do and pay for our own meals. This Singapore food blog is about real dining experience of ordinary Singaporeans.
