Finally had time to try Teppei’s small new outlet at the food basement of Ion Orchard! 🙂
The new Island Cafe at Tangs Orchard is a beautiful green(-walled) oasis in the heart of town. A friend suggested meeting there as it just finished renovating and I was surprised while going up the escalator to the fourth floor that there was even The Providore in the building! (This is what happens when you head straight for the kitchenware section in the basement all the time.)
The revamped cafe serves mainly local and regional dishes and is beautifully lit, with the floor-to-ceiling windows letting in a lot of natural light. It is quiet and inviting, a nice spot for a break in between shopping or a lazy weekend brunch.
We’re fans of chirashi and wagyu beef so we decided to try Ginzawa at Palais Renaissance, formerly known as Sushi Kuu, which offers set lunches all week long.
My last Restaurant Week meal was at Buona Terra, an Italian restaurant nestled in a refurbished colonial bungalow in Scotts Road. I had read excellent reviews of the place and was looking forward to trying it.
