This is a short post to alert our readers of some interesting Botanic Garden Activities and Food in November 2017.
Au Petit Salut is a French restaurant in the Dempsey Hill restaurant enclave. It is one of the few exclusive restaurants in this area which has a building all to itself as well as the adjoining carpark. It is situated on Harding Road and is across the road from the White Rabbit restaurant.
With the opening of Como Cuisine and The Dover Street Market Singapore, the Como Dempsey cluster of shops and food outlets at Dempsey Hill, Singapore is now complete. They are located in two adjoining buildings – Blocks 17 and 18 Dempsey Road. The first three restaurants to open – Candlenut, Ippoh Tempura and Dempsey Cookhouse are in Block 17. The new kids, Dover Market and Como Cuisine are in Block 18. We decided to have lunch at Como Cuisine and then check out the Dover Street Market next door.
New restaurant, Provisions Dempsey describes itself as follows: “Singapore’s first Skewers & Claypot Cocktail Bar. We serve comforting foods of South East Asia in provincial formats; in an earthen wear vessel and on a stick.” It is located in Block 7 which is right at the back of the Dempsey restaurant area. This part of Dempsey is nice and quiet as the road in front leads to a dead-end. The lush foliage made us feel like we were visiting a restaurant in Bali.
Corner House is a beautiful old two-storey black and white bungalow and also a Michelin star restaurant in Singapore Botanic Gardens. Creative cuisine prepared with quality ingredients, beautiful plating, amiable service and a historical building set amidst a lush UNESCO World Heritage Site – there surely are very few things in Singapore as romantic as having dinner at Corner House.
