Lotus Thai Restaurant is, well, a Thai restaurant serving a wide range of Thai food at affordable prices. The New Lotus Thai Restaurant at Paya Lebar Square has a rather extensive menu and very reasonably priced set lunches.
When Flock the cafe opened their outlet in Ghim Moh some years ago, we had thought that it would be nice to have a hip cafe in this area without having to travel all the way to Tiong Bahru. But Flock moved out about a year or so ago and another cafe took its place. The second cafe also moved out after a while. The space is now taken over by the ENAQ Prata Shop. It is the nicest roti prata restaurant we have seen. Air conditioned and still mostly using chic cafe furniture, it provides a cool alternative to the usual hawker fare available at the nearby Ghim Moh market and food centre.
Gazetted as a national monument, the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall (VTCH) along Empress Place has been beautifully restored. The historically important performing arts venue now offers elegant contemporary functional spaces with old-world charm. As ordinary Singaporeans, we had wondered why the resplendently restored VTCH had no space for a restaurant. It took a bit of time, but 2 years after its re-opening VTCH has added a restaurant – one with Michelin Star pedigree at that. FOO’D by Davide Oldani at Victoria Concert Hall offers a menu conceptualised by celebrity Chef Davide Oldani, chef-owner of the one Michelin-starred D’O in Cornaredo, a municipality in Milan in the Italian region Lombardy.

One of the restaurants that have remained since day one is Gan Yakitori. On our recent visit in 2017, the place was full at lunch time. The good food and attractive set lunch menus probably have something to do with it.
