It’s always fun to try out exciting new places to explore. Here are 5 more places to satisfy the adventurous streak in you.

6. Halia Restaurant at the Singapore Botanical Gardens

Cuisine: Fusion set meals, sandwiches and salads
Price: $35-40 for a decent meal

Very “atas”, lovely greenery. What more can you ask for? You can enjoy the views of Botanical Gardens through glass windows, while you are seated in aircon setting.

7. Farmart at Chua Chu Kang Hill

Cuisine: Snacks, kopitiam food, seafood and Zi Char
Price: unknown

With a whole variety of different farms (including bee, koi, lotus, quail, orchid, ornamental fish, lobster, frog farms), it’s very educational for children especially those who have never seen a live chicken. A whole lot of hands-on activities, such as farm tours available as well.

8. Beach Culture at Pasir Ris Park

Cuisine: Western
Price: $25-30, more if you order alcohol

It’s near the beach, so you have got fabulous view, especially in the evening, food is fabulous, pretty good variety of drinks, call to reserve seats as they can get rather packed in the evenings (be sure to ask for seats on the outside for alfresco dining). There’s even a jazz band on some evenings.

9. Galley by the Straits at SAF Yacht Club (Admiralty)

Cuisine: Chinese food (Zi Char style)
Price: $20-25 per person (depending on how many going)

Other than enjoying the food, strong breeze and fresh air, you can look far upon at one of the yachts and imagine you own one.  Great place to day-dream.

10. Restoran Asli (in Johor Bahru)

Cuisine: Seafood, Zi Char-style
Price: $10-20 for a very satisfying seafood meal

If all else fails, travel with bunch of kakis across the causeway.  It’s perfect for Singaporeans who are always on the hunt for cheap and good food.

  1. Nice tips, Thanks. =)
    I have tried the morning buffet at Haila. It was a nice experience, having breakfast at Botanic garden. However, they no longer have breakfast buffet liao.

  2. Wah got even more ulu places or not? Will be interesting to see your reviews of these ulu places… whether worth it to travel to such far flunk places.

  3. I’ve tried Beach Culture at Pasir Ris Park. Very disappointing experience, and there’s really nothing much to shout about when the night view is just tankers and ships…

    The experience was made worse when my medium rare steak came out 90% raw. Totally unacceptable for a decent restaurant.

    But the botanical gardens place looks interesting! Is it the one inside ginger garden?

  4. Hi Daniel,
    I would like to abstract the info of number 9, Galley to print. Is it ok to use the picture as well? Pls advice. Thank you!

  5. Hi SK, I don’t think I own the copyright to this picture because I didn’t shoot it.

    The last time I went, I took some pictures Gallery but were not satisfactory.

    Can I ask what do you need it for?

  6. Hi Daniel,
    Thank you for your honest reply. This is for a new food publication called Makan Lobang. It also include savings for your use. The review by you will be abstracted and we will include a credit to direct to your site. The booklet will be out early April but circulated to northern part of Singapore for this issue. I could send you a copy if you like. Send us an email at with your name and mailing address. Hope you’ll find the booklet useful.
