Tablescape Restaurant & Bar is a new “… contemporary, upscale restaurant and bar serving modern European classics complemented by a curated menu at the bar.” It is located on the third level of the Grand Park City Hall Hotel. This is the hotel that is next to Peninsular Plaza and Capitol Piazza. Currently the hotel is undergoing some major renovations. It is the boarded up building across the road from Excelsior Hotel.
Bah Kut Teh is one of the most popular street food in Singapore. One of the best places to enjoy “meat bone tea” in traditional style is at Old Tiong Bahru Bak Kut Teh at Seng Poh Road. The old school coffeeshop restaurant has a menu for a variety of tze char dishes but it is best loved for the flavoursome tender pork ribs served with peppery broth.

Creamier Tiong Bahru is a new outlet of Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee. It fits in nicely in the bohemian estate of Tiong Bahru. Opened a few months ago without fanfare, the unpretentious ice cream parlour and cafe occupies an unassuming spot in Yong Siak Street. It has a low key frontage and with only a small signage on its plain white wall. Those in the know head to Creamier Tiong Bahru to enjoy its freshly made ice cream and excellent waffle – and it would seem that they are many people in the know.
It has been a while since we had lunch at Shang Palace the Chinese restaurant at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore. Shangri La Hotel Singapore is located near Orchard Road but it is not really close. Perhaps it is a case of ‘out of sight out of mind’. The last time we had Shang Palace dim sum was some years ago and we thought that the (then) new dim sum chef had done a great job. We returned recently for a long overdue lunch of the Shang Palace dim sum.
