There are many good steakhouses in Singapore. Finding the right one for the occasion is the challenge. It was a casual lunch and we were looking for a place that serves a good steak at prices that do not require an increase in our credit card limit. Several options came to mind and we ended up at Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse along Mohamed Sultan Road.
The restaurants at Alley on 25, Andaz Hotel Singapore is a collection of food and beverage outlets on the 25th floor of the hotel by the Hyatt group. It seems to us that the Andaz brand is pitched at a similar level as the W Hotel group. Luxurious, but in a modern and hip way. The trend of new hotels in Singapore these days is to incorporate some fashionable restaurants into the design. See for example our visits to restaurants at the new Novotel Singapore on Stevens, Sofitel Singapore, Intercontinental Hotel Robertson Quay. Alley on 25 takes it one step further by having an entire 25th floor dedicated to wine and dine.
The Beach Road / Bugis area has a new shiny Andaz Singapore Hotel by the Hyatt Hotel group. The entire 25th floor of this building is taken up by restaurants. This dining zone is known as Alley on 25. Small and medium-sized restaurants with different themes and cuisines have been set up here to provide variety and interest to the hotel guests and casual diners. They all looked interesting and attractive. On our first visit to the Andaz Hotel Singapore, we ended up in Smoke and Pepper @ Alley on 25. The interesting description “... it showcases Asian-inspired barbecued specialties prepared over an open-fire barbecue grill” made us want to give it a try.
Studies suggest that the physical workspace has an impact on employee experience and that there are well designed offices in nice buildings which may actually make employees excited about going to work. However, cool offices in beautiful buildings downtown usually also mean expensive eateries when the time comes for lunch. It is thus a nice surprise to find that we can get a good weekday set lunch for $15 at Kith Cafe in the plushy Millenia Walk.
