Janice Wong National Museum Restaurant – where food meets art

Janice Wong Restaurant National Museum

The new Janice Wong  National Museum Restaurant recently opened in August 2016. Described as Singapore’s “dessert queen” in a Straits Times article in June 2016, Janice Wong had apparently decided to open this new flagship restaurant to serve dim sum and noodles alongside her delectable desserts. Dim sum and desserts sounded like a nice combination and so we stopped by the Janice Wong Singapore restaurant and discovered a place where food meets art.

Set lunch at Flutes Restaurant, National Museum

Flutes National Museum

National MuseumPreviously known as “Flutes at the Fort”, the Flutes Restaurant is now at the Singapore National Museum. The former location, which was a colonial black and white bungalow on Fort Canning that was once the residence of the Chief of the Central Fire Station, is now occupied by another restaurant, Lewin Terrace. The address may have changed but one thing about the Flutes Restaurant has remained constant – its good taste in selecting historic and desirable locations.

The Assembly Ground Cafe @ Cathay

Assembly Ground Cafe Cathay 1 - 1

Another reason to patronise the Assembly Ground cafe is their rather early opening hour of 10 am on Saturday and Sunday, when most food outlets are still closed.
