Ottoman Turkish Delights at Bussorah Street is a delightful Turkish bakery and confectionery. It was one of the places we stopped by when we did a walkabout of the Singapore Kampong Glam area during the December holidays. There were many folks like us walking about in the area near the Sultan Mosque. Local tourists, discovering new places which we had hitherto not noticed before.
There are not many Middle Eastern restaurants in Singapore. So naturally when a new one opened in Tanjong Pagar, we decided to check out this new Turkish restaurant Singapore – Fat Prince Kafe & Kebab. It is situated in a shophouse on Peck Seah Street, a small lane behind the Red Dot Design Museum on Maxwell Road.
Guess who we ran into on our way to the Arkadas Cafe Fusionopolis? What was Yoda doing in the middle of a garden in the centre of a building in One North, Buona Vista? And then it dawned on us – Sandcrawler! That explains the name of the building that is so different from the rest of the names of the buildings (such as Connexis, Galaxis, Genexis) in Fusionopolis. We were in the building that houses the Lucasfilm production units. The Sandcrawler is a beautiful building with a tropical oasis on the ground floor, where Arkadas Cafe is located. Like the machine in the Star Wars film, the Sandwalker building is also designed like a fortress. It was not easy to find the way in. Only one small entrance on one side of the building provides access. Until we found it, we were wondering though the lush vegetation and bumping into Yoda the statute.
