Komyuniti Yotel Hotel Singapore – hidden cafe in the heart of Orchard Road


We had the Komyuniti cafe all to ourselves when we visited it recently. It is located in the Yotel Singapore, a hotel just behind Shaw Centre. Very close to Orchard Road and yet hidden from view. If I am a tourist in Singapore, this is the kind of hotel I like – smallish, modern, centrally located but not on the main street. Surrounded by restaurants but has its own quiet restaurant if I decide to dine in. Komyuniti restaurant has a friendly welcoming look from the lift lobby.

Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine, new restaurant at Far East Square by Jumbo Group


Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine 醉宇轩经典潮膳 is a new restaurant by the Jumbo Group. It opened recently in April 2019 at a beautiful two-storey heritage building located in Far East Square. Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine and the more casual Chao Ting next door join Chui Huay Lim Restaurant as the Jumbo Group’s Teochew restaurants in Singapore. We had lunch at Zui Yu Xuan Teochew Cuisine.

Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice – new restaurant in Beach Road

Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice in Beach Road

If the famous Beach Road Prawn Mee is in East Coast Road, it should not be surprising to find the popular Lorong 33 Geylang Claypot Rice in Beach Road. After selling claypot rice in Geylang Lorong 33 for more than 30 years, Geylang Claypot Rice closed its doors last year, leaving many loyal customers disappointed. The good news is that Lor 33 Geylang Claypot Rice has re-opened with a nicer dining environment in Beach Road.
