Ginett restaurant in new G Hotel, Middle Road Singapore

Hotel G Singapore is a new hotel on Middle Road near Bugis and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations.  Unlike conventional hotels, the grand entrance at street level is occupied by a restaurant – the Ginett Restaurant.  The lobby of the G Hotel (“a chic lifestyle hotel “) is located on level 2. Placing a big restaurant right at the front of a small hotel is a bold and effective move as the prominence of the Ginett Restaurant with its hundreds of glistening hanging glasses certainly attracts the attention of anyone passing by. We can imagine that the place would look even grander when lit up at night.

Lunch at Tippling Club restaurant in Tanjong Pagar

The Tippling Club restaurant in Tanjong Pagar is listed number 27 in the 2017 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list.   The list was published two days ago.  Coincidentally, we just had lunch at the Tippling Club by chef Ryan Clift only last week. The Tippling Club occupies the ground floor of shophouses (including house number 38) along Tanjong Pagar Road, just off Duxton Hill.   The upper level hosts other facilities including a private dining area called Bin 38, named after the Penfold’s Bin series of wines.  There is apparently a tie-up with Australian wine heavyweight Penfolds.

Alati Singapore – Divine Greek Cuisine on Amoy Street

Alati Singapore is a Greek restaurant on Amoy Street. The restaurant space they occupy was part of the premises previously used by Huat Kee Teochew restaurant who had re-located to the RELC Building about two years ago. There are not many Greek restaurants in Singapore and therefore good Greek restaurants are hard to come by. Alati restaurant’s tagline is “Divine Greek Cuisine”. Their website states that “everything in the menu, from the meat to the pastry to the bread, are made painstakingly and meticulously by hand.” In theory therefore, everything about Alati Singapore looks promising!

Morsels Singapore is a new small restaurant in Dempsey Hill serving small bites. According to their website, “The 40-seater restaurant founded and run by Chef-Owner Petrina Loh since 2013 serves wildly creative fusion dishes which are ingredient-driven.”  Morels was previously located in Little India and moved to their current location in Dempsey in January 2017. The description about the restaurant with wildly creative dishes intrigued us. The no-corkage day BYO on Tuesdays sealed the deal for us. We headed to Dempsey Hill, bottle in hand.
