Origin Grill & Bar @ Shangri La Hotel Singapore – $34++ 3 course set lunch


Origin Grill & Bar Shangri-La Hotel Singapore was the place we picked to meet up for lunch recently. It is located at the ground level, deep inside the magnificent lobby of the hotel on Orange Grove Road. I think the Shang lobby is probably the most impressive hotel lobby in Singapore. According to the restaurant website, “Origin Grill is inspired by the origin of flavours, travel adventures and Singapore’s illustrious history of bountiful trade, colonial charm and tropical splendour”. We are not sure what that means, but we were attracted to Origin by the nice pictures of the place as well as the weekday executive set lunch priced at a reasonable $34++ per person.

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.
