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.
Like green shoots after the rain, new Great World restaurants have sprouted following the major renovations that started in 2018. It is now 2020 and most of the works are complete and Great World City (GWC) has a bright new look and a brand new name – Great World (we wonder how much they paid their consultants who came up with the rebranding of “Great World City” to “Great World”). Change of name aside, if you have not been there in the last 18 months, you may not recognise the place. Here are some TOP Great World restaurants and food places to check out. Some are totally new to Great World restaurants and others are familiar ones that were in GWC but have updated their stores.
Plentyfull Great World City was the cafe that we ended up having coffee and dessert after our lunch at the Tambuah Mas Indonesia restaurant. There are many cafes at the newly renovated GWC serving the same type of casual Western cuisine. But the bright open concept and decor was what made Plentyfull Great World City stand out from the crowd.
Tambuah Mas is one of the oldest Indonesian restaurants in Singapore having been in business since 1981. Their new outlet, Tambuah Mas Great World City is one of the many new eateries that have recently opened at the newly renovated Great World City. We had lunch there recently.
But some secrets are too delicious not to share.Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay
Have you heard of the secret at Clarke Quay? About Mimi at Clarke Quay? Not “Mimi” as in the name “Mimi Rogers” or the nickname of Mariah Carey but “mì mì” as in the hanyi pinyin of 秘密 (which means secret in Mandarin). 秘密 Mimi is a new Chinese restaurant which opened in Clarke Quay in the second half of 2019. Mimi restaurant occupies the upper level of The Riverhouse, previously occupied by VLV Singapore, and offers contemporary Chinese cuisine.
Don Don Donki The Central Clarke Quay is the sixth Singapore outlet of the supermarket that refers to itself as the “Japan Discount King”. The supermarket itself does not need any introduction. What is more interesting about this Don Donki outlet near the Singapore River are the eateries that it has incorporated into the retail experience. The restaurants and food outlets at B1 The Central bring additional interest to this 24 hour supermarket. The restaurants however are not open 24 hours, so do note their respective operating hours.
