Maddie’s Kitchen – a new restaurant for affordable quality food

When a senior real estate lawyer suggested that we meet for lunch at a new restaurant in Far East Plaza I had to check if she really meant the old shopping centre at Scotts Road. She confirmed that we would be eating in Far East Plaza because she wanted to try the newly opened Maddie’s Kitchen there. She told me that the restaurant was owned and run by the spouse of a rather successful professional. I was expecting a trendy restaurant for the tais tais or a chic bistro. When I went to level 5 of Far East Plaza I saw a number of food kiosks and small cafeterias. Then I saw Maddie’s Kitchen. It looked like a stall selling economic rice and the place was full. We had to stand outside for a while to wait for a table to be freed up.

Relish @ Cluny Court by Wild Rocket – burger restaurant and more

Relish @ Cluny Court by Wild Rocket is a place that comes to mind when we think of eating burgers.  According to the Wild Rocket website, they started to sell burgers at Relish in 2006 because there weren’t any places serving burgers using good quality ingredients.  Fortunately it is not a one trick pony and they serve up a number of other wonderful Western dishes as well. Cluny Court is a small shopping arcade at the corner of Bukit Timah Road and Cluny Road. The French Embassy is located right next door and the new section of Singapore Botanic Gardens is just across the street.

Zeppelin & Co Cafe

A trendy space with a contemporary interior design combining elegance and homeliness is hardly a description usually associated with Sim Lim Square. However, that is what you will find in a corner of the second level of Sim Lim Square.
