Visiting Singapore ?
Guided day trips are a very nice way to explore this unique and beautiful city...
Occupying one of Singapore's best possible locations, within the impressive neo-Palladian building of the Asian Civilisations Museum, facing Boat Quay and Raffles Landing Site, this restaurant is famous both for its outstanding food, as well as for its ambience and style.
Beautifully decked out in a contemporary-elegant style that combines western motifs and some traditional Southeast-Asian art pieces, it also has a very nice 'alfresco' verandah, where you can sprawl in a comfy rattan chair and enjoy some fabulous views of the Singapore River and Boat Quay.
The kitchen produces a wide variety of specialties from across Southeast-Asia... Mostly from the cuisines of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Recommended dishes include: Sai oua muang luang (Spicy prawns and chicken sausage), Goi cuon (Vietnamese fresh rice-paper prawn rolls) and Salad of spinach, aloe-vera and pomelo for starters, and Pad kimao neua kwang (drunken venison), Vit quay xao chuan got (roasted duck with lychee and pineapple), Lemongrass king prawns and Xao mang tay sot chua (Stir-fried asparagus with crab sauce) for mains.
Desserts are well worth leaving a space for... the Tropical fruits fondue (served with Valrhona chocolate liquor sauce) and the Banana fritters (with vanilla ice-cream) are simply out of this world...
To complement the lovely meal, there is a modern, well stocked bar with everything you can think of...
Prices are obviously a bit higher than in some other restaurants (not outrageously though), but the dining experience is superb: Around SG$ 50 - 80 for a full a-la-carte dinner
Open daily: Dinner is served daily, while lunch is served only from Monday to Friday
