Sprouts Food Place in Botanic Gardens

Sprouts Food Place at Raffles Building is a new food court in Botanic Gardens. It is worth a visit even though it only has 3 stalls now – a drinks stall where you can get kopi at $0.60; The Original Botak Jones offering affordable Western food; and Melben Seafood where you can order a zi char feast.

The new Sprouts Food Place took over the space of the defunct Cluny Food Court (by the Les Amis Group). The new food court in Botanic Gardens occupies the single storey structure located just next to the main Raffles Building near the Nassim Gate. There is an open air car park just across the road.

We tried their Beef Hor Fun ($10) and Butter Chicken Rice ($7). They were both delicious – very good zhi char standard.

Drinks Stall

The beverage stall in the new food court in Botanic Gardens is simply called the Drinks Stall. It offers espresso coffee, local kopi and teh as well as various beverages you will normally find in the neighbourhood coffeeshop. However, the prices are even lower than the heartland coffeeshop prices. A cup of hot Kopi O is only 60 cents and Kopi C is 80 cents. Cold versions cost just 20 cents more.

Sprouts Food Place is sort of a hidden gem. It is in a rather secluded location in Singapore Botanic Gardens and the nearest MRT station is maybe a kilometre away. However, it offers a pleasant comfortable space set amidst lush greenery; and patrons will find in the new food Court in Botanic Gardens good food and beverages at very reasonable prices. It is a place worth visiting, whether you need to refuel after a walk or you just want to enjoy affordable good food.
