Eat Like an Italian in Bottega Tanjong Katong

Bottega Singapore

The signage says “Bottega grocery and more”. We were attracted by the “more”. Bottega Tanjong Katong is a small grocery with a fair selection of fresh and dried Italian groceries as well as Italian beers, wine and mineral water. It is also a casual pizzeria featuring pizza made with Petra 3 (100% Italian soft wheat blend) and serving antipasti, pasta and desserts. Bottega Tanjong Katong allows you to savour a meal prepared with typical Italian grocery products without preparing it yourself.

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

il Cielo for Christmas 2017

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.
