  • Nice restaurants for local fare

    Hi,

    Any suggestion to bring guests from overseas to try out " good local food" but must be nice ambience not hawker centres or food courts.

        i tried this restaurant called "Kopitiam" at Raffles City Shopping centre there. The food's pretty good. I tried their ba kut teh...laksa....and i liked it! The prices are around $15 per dish...but you get good local food with nicer ambience though.....

          Agreed, Kopitiam is really good! It's actually located inside Westin (what's that hotel called now?) and the atmosphere is very nice but more importantly the food is good.

              Can I suggest the new cafe at Hyatt Hotel? Great local fare in comfort of an airconditioned environment.

                I like the food at Different Tastes. It's along Frankel Ave in East Coast. Though the ambience is not like those in hotels but like normal restaurants.

                  Chili Padi at Joo Chiat is not bad. It's a peranakan restaurant. Went there twice with my family before, my mom was going crazy over the beef rendang. You can eat your heart's out for < $20 a person.

                    I second dimples. The cafe at Hyatt is a great introduction to local hawker type fare in a fancy environment. As because its a buffet one price thing, your guests can try abit of everything.

                        Gals, I brought my guests to Straits Kitchen yesterday night! Its really a fantastic place to introduce local food to our overseas guests. Furthermore the food there are really nice I like most of them myself and there are soooo many variety. In fact I can't sample all of them so sad.

                        Its kinda of expensive as its a buffet spread but with open kitchen concept $38+++ excluding drinks so in total we spent $170plus for 3 person just eating local food.:wow: Luckily its paid by company

                        But the ambience really nice and contemporary and surprising there's alot of people even on a weekday hence you need to reserve else got to wait long.

                          Yes, it's very popular. I hear the reservation goes up to 2 weeks when it first opened.
