Our recent phase 2 dining out in Singapore experience brought to mind the lyrics of the Joni Mitchell song: “… that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone…“. Here are the 5 things that we missed about dining out during the COVID lockdown.
Our recent Imperial Treasure takeaway meal from Great World City was the closest Chinese restaurant dining experience ever since the COVID19 circuit breaker. Imperial Treasure food delivery or takeaway is now available at some outlets. We chose GWC as the shopping mall has a quiet lane at the side where the driver can wait while the passenger runs up to pick up the order.
Zorba The Greek Taverna is a relatively new restaurant at Clarke Quay, having opened in late 2019. This Greek restaurant is located along the Singapore River, near the Liang Court mall. With the current virus concerns we thought that the open air restaurant was a suitable place for an early dinner.
Klang Bak Kut Teh & Petaling Street Claypot Chicken Rice is one of the stalls at Great World Malaysia Chiak. A mini food court in basement one that is presented like a nostalgic street scene in Malaysia. I must say that the setting is quite realistic with soft 1970s Mandarin pop songs being played in the background.
Blue Ginger Great World City is the famous Peranakan restaurant’s second outlet in Singapore. Their first one is at Tanjong Pagar and has been in business for more than 20 years. We had our nonya lunch there recently and were impressed by how good the food was at the new Blue Ginger restaurant.
