Little Elephant in Tiong Bahru

Little Elephant in Tiong Bahru

There is a Little Elephant in Tiong Bahru –  not the large herbivorous mammal with tusks but a Thai restaurant and bar.  Located in one the Art Deco buildings along Eng Hoon Road, the newly opened Little Elephant Thai Bistro serves affordable Thai food in a rustic and laidback setting. The Thai word for elephant is Chang ( ช้าง) so, of course, Chang Beer is served at the Little Elephant.

Our Healthy Set Lunch at Grand Hyatt Singapore

There are many choices available for an Orchard Road set lunch on a weekday. One venue which is quite attractive is Mezza9, Grand Hyatt Singapore. The options include some healthy set lunch options starting from $32++ which are pretty good value for money. If there are available credit card promotions, then it gets even better. Recently we were there armed with a UOB Infinite VISA card which has a “one dines free” deal. This equates to a 50% discount for a party of two which means $16++ for lunch at a 5-star hotel at Orchard Road Singapore. Not bad right?   Do note that credit card promos often change from time to time so please check with them on the current offers at the time of reservation (which is something you need to do because it is often full at lunchtime).
