In an ideal world, we should have most of the amenities and services available in our respective neighbourhoods in Singapore. With everything within walking distance or a 10 minute bicycle ride, we can avoid overloading the transport systems and wasting time and money. Sadly this is seldom the case, especially when it comes to restaurants as they like to concentrate in malls and business areas like Keong Siak and Orchard. It is therefore always of great interest to us to learn of a new restaurant like Summer Hill Bistro which opened in the Sunset Way / Clementi residential area in early 2018.
Nobiro Japanese Restaurant & Sake Bar is a Japanese restaurant in the Clementi / West Coast area of Singapore. It is situated among a row of shops within the Faber Drive housing area. Nobiro Restaurant’s location in a quiet residential area means that the diners are unlikely to be casual passers-by. It took some deliberate effort in order to locate the place.
Most food courts have a “western food” stall that sells the traditional western food, namely, oily pork chops, grilled chicken and thin steaks with soggy fries. I was therefore quite surprised to see this Spanish & Western stall when I passed by the Foodfare food court at Clementi Mall the other day. It was obvious that the Spanish food, in particular seafood paella, was the main attraction. The huge pan was filled with delicious looking paella (see photo below). Of course I had to try some right?
