SIN: 10 Scotts

Beef Wellington - it's been a long while! It's been five months since Singapore moved into Phase 2 of Reopening after the trying period of Circuit Breaker, our local term for the stay-at-home order. I've done a few staycations during this season, with Grand Hyatt Singapore (5*) being the first in the series. While waiting for the room to be ready, I indulged in a delightful afternoon tea at 10 Scotts located at the lobby level.

SIN: MacKenzie Rex Restaurant [Delivery]

Probably my first time having Halal 'ngor hiang'! MacKenzie Rex Restaurant is a Halal  Chinese restaurant that has been around since 1966. It's located along Prinsep Street in Bencoolen, not far from Place to R.E.A.D , a Greek restaurant that I've previously tried. At the point of writing, it's partnering with three food delivery companies: FoodPanda, Deliveroo and GrabFood.

SIN: Hoshino Coffee

Can you handle both maple syrup and 'matcha' sauce together? Hoshino Coffee was established in Japan in 2011. Having more than 200 outlets in the Land of the Rising Sun, it's renowned for its hand-drip coffee and soufflé pancake. Following its success, it opened its first overseas outlet in Singapore in 2012, though I'm not sure which is the very first one out of the ten branches that we have across the island at the point of writing.

SIN: Noodle Thai Thai Kitchen

Where one 'Thai' isn't enough to make you stand out! When I heard my friend mentioning the name Zhongshan Mall for the first time, my response was, "Is that in Taipei, Taiwan?" He was actually referring to a shopping mall located in close proximity to the historical Sun Yat-Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall between Novena and Toa Payoh MRT stations. I agreed to accompany him to have dinner there at this affordable Thai eatery.

SIN: Mr Punch Public House

Salmon main course that packed a punch! Have you heard of Punch and Judy, a traditional British puppet show? Taking its name from one of the main characters of the show, the cosy and quirky Mr Punch Public House is housed inside MINT Museum of Toys. At the point of writing, however, both the museum and the gastrobar are closed for upgrading.

SIN: Restaurant A380 @ Changi (Economy) [till 1 November 2020]

Possibly the one and only time I got to dine onboard a grounded aircraft! Singapore Airlines originally planned to launch the so-called 'flights to nowhere' to earn a bit of revenue after being crippled by COVID-19. However, due to the growing environmental concerns raised by quite a few parties, it called off the plan. To make up for that, it has decided to come up with a pop-up restaurant using one of its Airbus 380-800 aircraft for two weekends.

SIN: The Rice Table

Savour a variety of Indonesian dishes in small portions! Rijstaffel (lit. Rice Table) is a term coined by the Dutch during their occupation of Indonesia, who approached Indonesian food with a great deal of caution at first by sampling one dish after another in small quantities. The Rice Table inside the unassuming International Building at Orchard Road is a restaurant where you can have all-you-can-eat rijstaffel experience.
