Buffet Lunch at The Lobby Lounge Shangri-La

Shangri-La buffet at the Line Restaurant with its theatre kitchens is heaven on earth for those who love an all-you-can-feast. While The Line offers one of the best hotel buffets in Singapore, Shangri-La Hotel has a little gem hidden in plain sight. The stylish elegant Lobby Lounge located in the hotel’s Tower Wing is more than a bar and lounge for afternoon tea or cocktails in the evening. The Lobby Lounge offers an enticing menu featuring Singapore’s heritage dishes and street food. The Shangri-La Peranakan Buffet Lunch at The Lobby Lounge is a simple sumptuous affair in an elegant and relaxing atmosphere.

Dulukala @ Island

Dulukala at Island is a new cafe at Tang’s department store. They take over the former Island Cafe Tang’s.

HarriAnns Nonya Table at Bugis Junction

HarriAnns Laksa

While there is no lack of Peranakan restaurants in Singapore it is still nice to find an accessible one in a downtown shopping mall. HarriAnns Nonya Table is conveniently located at Bugis Junction, It does not have ostensible Peranakan decor and about the only thing colourful in the small eatery is the food. Their Nonya kuehs in eye-catching colours and laksa and curry with intense hues are the real attraction.
