Still searching for Chulove? It is located at level one of VivoCity. Chulove Cafe takes up part of the space formerly occupied by Spanish restaurant Serenity which has closed. From a distance, Chulove Cafe beckoned us to check it out with a fresh, bright look. Its main attraction is the Spanish snack, churros which, according to their website, are “… made fresh to order with an authentic Spanish recipe”.
Paradise Teochew VivoCity is the latest new restaurant by the Paradise restaurant group. It is located in a quiet corner of level 1 of Vivo City (it is the last unit along the side facing Sentosa and furthest away from Harbourfront). Yet it was a full house when we were there. I think the opening promotion which is on till 7 Dec 2018 might have contributed to it. Please see photo below for details.
Did you know that VivoCity is the largest mall in Singapore? It is bigger than Suntec City or Ngee Ann City, has been in operation since 2006 and was built on the site of the former exhibition halls of the Singapore World Trade Centre (source : Wikipedia). Vivo City also boasts a vast collection of eateries. Many restaurants have come and gone over the years. One of the restaurants that has been there for a long time and still going strong is Tung Lok Signatures VivoCity. This Chinese restaurant has been there since the beginning (as far as we can remember) and is still looking good.
Dessert cafe Bakerzin has been in business since 1998. One of their earliest outlets was at Millenia Walk where I could still remember revelling in their French pastry creations. Things have changed since then. That outlet no longer exists and Bakerzin has expanded to six outlets in Singapore. Their menu range has also expanded and they offer a variety of cafe food like burgers and pasta. We had a simple brunch at BakerZin Vivo City branch recently. It is a branch which is in close proximity to people on the West Coast and Sentosa.
According to Wikipedia, a “chop house” is a restaurant that specializes in steaks and chops. The name of The Chop House Vivo City restaurant is direct and straight to the point. Meat dishes feature prominently in their menu. Chope House Vivo City is run by the Wooloomooloo Group which has two other steakhouses in Singapore under the Wooloomooloo brand. The Chop House is a more casual style of restaurant which has branches in Hong Kong (Tsim Sha Tsui) and Singapore (Katong and Vivo City).
