Fusion Spoon restaurant at Singapore Botanic Gardens is located next to the carpark at the Tanglin Gate. It is the largest restaurant in the SBG. It is a pleasant, airconditioned dining place for families and visitors. What impressed me the most is the wide selection of food available from Western, Asian and Japanese cuisines. There is even a Korean bingsu ice kiosk. Prices also seemed reasonable.
Fusion Spoon at Botanic Gardens has a large airconditioned space which many visitors will welcome as a cool haven after an outing at the Gardens. There is an alfresco area for those who prefer natural ventilation. This is where the Korean dessert Bingsu Corner is situated. n The restaurant is in the basement with direct assess from the carpark level B1.
Although the dining space is huge, there were only one or two service staff. n Orders and payment are made at the self-service kiosks. Collect the food when your order number is called. It is a straight forward system.
Fusion Spoon Botanic Gardens Menu
The Fusion Spoon menu is very extensive with about 100 items. Here are pictures of some segments of the menu. Most of the dishes are affordable, priced below $10 each.
Since this was my first visit to Fusion Spoon, my decision was made primarily based on the pictures displayed on the TV monitors. The nasi lemak looked nice. There were four types of nasi lemak to choose from. I picked the nasi lemak with deep-fried tumeric chicken drumstick ($8) and an ice tea ($1.90). The prices are nett, i.e. no more GST or service charge would be added.
The nasi lemak was overall a nice hearty meal. The drumstick was large and the amount of rice was generous. The chicken drumstick was the best part of it. The skin was crisp and the meat moist. The other components were quite average. The rice was not ‘lemak’ enough and the chilli was a bit too sour for my taste.
Fusion Spoon is a convenient place to eat at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. It is also well furnished and can accommodate a large group of visitors. I was pleasantly surprised by the prices as I had expected prices at touristy places to be slightly more than usual. My total cost was $9.90, not bad for a meal at a restaurant at Singapore’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.
