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.

Just look for the iconic Penang street art on the wall of a little cafe and various signs and posters advertising Penang delicacies.  Continue reading →

‘French Ba Kut Teh’ and set lunch at the BarRoque Grill

With National Day on our minds, we thought we should look out for a restaurant with a Singapore National Day themed lunch. We ended up with ‘French Ba Kut Teh’ of the BarRoque Grill at the Amara Hotel. 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.
