BIZEN Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse in Funan Mall is one of the many brands and outlets of the Aston Group. Initially serving their good and cheap steaks in Singapore, Astons have since grown beyond that. From the up-market Ranch Steakhouse and the more recent Bizen outlets, they have come a long way since their humble beginnings at a East Coast Road coffeeshop.
Today’s post is about our Sunday set lunch in a beautiful restaurant in Singapore. We had lunch at one of the nicest restaurants in Singapore to have lunch – SKAI restaurant at the top of Swissotel Stamford. All the ingredients of a good Sunday lunch in Singapore were present that day – good food, fine wine, great company and a lovely restaurant with a clear view from the 70th floor.
The National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) operates three clubhouses. The NUSS Guild House Suntec City is one of them. The largest one is at the NUS campus at Kent Ridge. A new one has recently opened up on Mandalay Road (read about our visit to NUSS Mandalay here). We had a lunch of western and local delights at the NUSS Guild House Suntec City Bistro & Bar.
Meat-Me Steakhouse Dempsey is a new restaurant at the dining enclave of Dempsey Hill. This steak restaurant has taken over the premises previously occupied by Spanish restaurant Tapas 26, which in turn had replaced La Ventana. If you find the place somewhat familiar, it is because the place has only been slightly modified. It looks substantially like Tapas 26. You can read about our lunch at Tapas 26 here.
Fairprice Xtra VivoCity is NTUC Fairprice’s latest and largest hypermarket in Singapore. It is huge and occupies the space that used to be taken by Cold Storage and Giant. Although it is an “Xtra” and not a “Fairprice Finest” store, the the variety of food and other categories was outstanding. We shall show you some of these later in the post. We were most interested in the new market dining concept that is similar to that available at Culina @ Dempsey. At Fairprice Xtra VivoCity, there is a service to prepare and cook the meat and seafood that you have bought. A restaurant service in the middle of the supermarket!
