Straits Cafe @ Rendezvous Hotel

Located within Rendezvous Hotel Singapore and established since 1998, Straits Café offers a myriad of local and international fare with strong focus on cuisines from the Straits Settlement. And I would say this is the most value for money buffet in town.

Golden Mile Thien Kee Steamboat @ Beach Road

In Golden Mile Complex, there are many mookata eateries. But before all these mookatas was Thien Kee, who was one of the first restaurant here and famous for steamboat. Later, everyone talks about their chicken rice. So is this place famous for Hainanese chicken rice or steamboat?

Salted and Hung @ Bugis

Salted & Hung is a Contemporary Australian restaurant with a menu that has a strong focus on in-house curing and grilling. Elements of smoking, curing and pickling are reflected through the menu using classic curing techniques with the aid of modern instruments to maintain the integrity of flavours.
