The Ordinary Patrons – Ordinary People Looking for Places to Eat

VLV Restaurant - The Ordinary Patrons : TOP Singapore Food Blog

Singapore Food

Singapore is known for its food – from local Michelin star hawker fare to food in celebrated restaurants said to be “worth taking a plane ride for” by the New York Times. The number of Singapore restaurants, cafes and food stalls is staggering and new places for food & beverages sprout up by the week. Yet you commonly hear in Singapore –  What to Eat?  Where to eat?  In this independent Singapore food blog The Ordinary Patrons share their discoveries with local foodies and visitors who may be asking the same questions.



Food Blog

The Ordinary Patrons write as everyday folks about Singapore restaurants, cafes and other food and beverage establishments they have visited – giving independent review and their frank opinion about the food, service and atmosphere of the place and whether they think the prices give good value. We visit an eatery just as the average customers do and pay for our own meals. The posts coverage extends from neighbourhood cafes to hip bars and swanky restaurants, from simple local Singapore food to exotic cuisines from all over the world. The blog may also give a glimpse of where do ordinary locals eat in Singapore. Browsing the blog can help you decide what to eat and where to eat.
