A nice set lunch in Singapore below $30 (Orchard Road)

Living in a city with a high cost of living, it is only natural that we tend to look out for good lunch deals.  Today’s post is on a subject which I think many of us look for now and then – a good set lunch in Singapore below $30.  The one at Italian restaurant Il Cielo probably ticks all the right boxes – a nice place (in 5-star Hilton no less) quiet (on the top floor where not many even know it exists), good service and at a reasonable budget. We think it is a weekday set lunch in Singapore below $30 that does the trick. We have been there before but it does not fail to impress us with by the $25 set lunch. With GST and service charge, the total cost per person came up to about $30.

For National Day 2017, they were offering two special dishes – “French Ba Kut Teh Slow cooked goodness with our special mix of herbs and spices” and “French Chicken Rice Singapore’s favourite dish, done with French techniques” – which sounded interesting, plus they also have a Michelin Bib Gourmand award.
