We like the IVINS Peranakan Food takeaway service from their Binjai Park outlet in Bukit Timah. It is rather low tech but simple and effective. There is no online booking page or prepayment by credit card or Paypal. Just Whatsapp to 85101056 and list out which items you want and food pickup time. The IVINS staff will reply with a confirmation. You can also request for a menu via Whatsapp.
The 20% discount for certain food pickup locations by booking through Foodpanda was enough to entice us to browse through the list of restaurants. We landed on 西湖小吃 Westlake Food Pickup. This is a restaurant that has been at Farrer Road for more than 40 years.
It has been a while since we last ate at Chui Huay Lim Singapore, the Teochew Restaurant near Newton Circus. In part because there are more Teochew restaurant options that opened in the past few years. Perhaps because it is situated slightly out of the usual dining places. A case of out of sight and out of mind.
Buffet in a hotel in Singapore need not necessarily mean crowded dining space and a less than genteel rush for the trays of oysters and sashimi. The Dining Room at Sheraton Towers offers a delectable international buffet spread in a spacious dining area with views of cascading waterfalls, rock pools and verdant greenery. When we visited The Dining Room on a weekday evening, the place could even be said to be serene and we felt like we were eating in a proper 5 star hotel restaurant and not like in a cafeteria where we would have to wait in line for food.
Roots Mediterranean is a new restaurant at Greenwood Avenue. It is situated among a row of shops at the small dining enclave in the expensive residential of Watten Estate in Bukit Timah, Singapore. Roots Meditarranean takes over the space from Rosso Bianco Italian Restaurant (read our review here). If you find that the restaurant looks familiar, that is because the interior has hardly changed. Only the restaurant concept and menu have changed.
