Origin Grill & Bar @ Shangri La Hotel Singapore – $34++ 3 course set lunch


Origin Grill & Bar Shangri-La Hotel Singapore was the place we picked to meet up for lunch recently. It is located at the ground level, deep inside the magnificent lobby of the hotel on Orange Grove Road. I think the Shang lobby is probably the most impressive hotel lobby in Singapore. According to the restaurant website, “Origin Grill is inspired by the origin of flavours, travel adventures and Singapore’s illustrious history of bountiful trade, colonial charm and tropical splendour”. We are not sure what that means, but we were attracted to Origin by the nice pictures of the place as well as the weekday executive set lunch priced at a reasonable $34++ per person.

Wine Connection Bistro HillV2 – set lunch at a restaurant with attached wine shop in Upper Bukit Timah


Wine Connection Bistro HillV2 is one of the larger restaurants at this suburban mall along Hillview Road in the Bukit Timah area. It is more popular in the evenings when working folks in the area congregate for some food and wine. In the day time, it is relatively quiet. A couple of lunchtime set lunch menus make it more attractive to dine here in the afternoon. There is also the attached Wine Connection wine shop which certainly makes wine selection more interesting than browsing through a wine list.
