Beach Road Kitchen Singapore

Beach Road Kitchen is the new all day dining restaurant of JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. The not so old South Beach Hotel has a new operator and has been re-branded as JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. One of the things the new hotel operator has done is to relocate the hotel’s all day dining restaurant, formerly known as ADHD, to a larger space and give it a new name – Beach Road Kitchen. The move is probably a practical and sensible one from the business perspective. However, we found the new Beach Road Kitchen nice but rather unexciting. Continue reading →

Birds of a Feather Cafe, start of a post industrial revolution?

Our lunch at newly opened Birds of a Feather Cafe on Amoy Street Singapore was a remarkable experience on many fronts.  Another new hip cafe in Singapore? Perhaps, but this is a new cafe with a difference – the accommodations.  We have been conditioned to accept uncomfortable dining conditions in Singapore. Under the guise of “industrial chic”, we are used to bare concrete floors, rickety stools, hard surfaces and crowded spaces. The Birds of a Feather Cafe looks as trendy as any recent new cafe but there was none of those inconveniences. In fact many of the seats were plush and we were far enough away not to smell the neighbours’ food. Hopefully, this is a start of a post industrial revolution in our cafe designs.
