A nation of foodies, Singaporeans love an extensive choice of delectable menus and we spare no effort to hunt down great eats around the island. However, dining in an environment with great ambience does make a difference to the overall dining experience. This does not have to mean swanky fine dining with candlelight setting, it can be as simple as just enjoying the view of nature, soothing those frazzled nerves, and tired, overused eyes with the serenity of greeneries or sea views. Despite Singapore’s reputation as a concrete jungle, we do have pockets of oasis tucked away, waiting for you to discover. Note them down on your diaries this weekend!
