Kampong Glam, Singapore

Kampong Glam is worth a wander. Kampong Glam is a whole block, and the whole are definitely should be explored. The main street extending from the Mosque is a mess of stores and restaurants, with people trying to entice you every which way. I found that the other little streets and lanes, like Haji Lane, were more interesting as there were little boutique stores offering a host of handicrafts, clothes and smaller cafes and restaurants. There’s awesome street art and the vibes are more relaxed the further from the mosque you go. It’s also a very short walk from the MRT, and things don’t really open until late morning.

Aura at the National Gallery, Singapore

My travel companions and I wanted to share a memorable meal on our final day in Singapore. My online research told me that Aura offered a delightful lunch menu that wouldn’t break the bank, so we ventured here. Located on the roof of the National Gallery, this restaurant offers chic elegance like no other. We were hoping for rooftop views of Marina Bay, and although you can wander to see this view, the restaurant doesn’t face the Bay so keep that in mind.
The food was delicious and authentic Italian. The service was attentive and the atmosphere made us feel very special.

Cafe Punto, Galle, Sri Lanka

At Cafe Punto, my partner and I had some of the best Sri Lankan cuisine of our trip. We tried roti and buffalo curd and a fish kottu and so much more. Ah, the food was so tasty and reasonably priced, so we kept ordering until we were full. It’s an unassuming little restaurant, but always busy. They serve Western meals to, but I figure, when traveling, do as the locals do.

Fika Swedish Cafe, Kampong Glam, Singapore

In the heart of Kampong Glam, you’ll find this Swedish cafe. I was traveling with people who were a bit nervous to try the middle-eastern and cheap local food that was around the area, so this Swedish cafe offered an interesting western meal. I had an elderflower and blueberry drink, which was perfectly refreshing in the Singaporean humidity. For food, we shared hasselback potatoes, swedish meatballs and a salad. Halal and decadent, the food was earthy and buttery, I’m not someone who usually has Swedish cuisine, so I was very excited to try and very glad that I did.
The restaurant has wifi, aircon, a clean bathroom and ample seating. My only concern would be that it tends to echo with large groups and can get quite loud.

Invisible Coffee Room, Klongtoey, Bangkok

The Invisible Coffee Room is a lovely little artisan coffee house down Sukhumvit Soi 16. Not a lot by way of food, but the coffee is decadent. This cafe is the sort of place where you’d take your laptop or your book, perfect study space, perfect peace and quiet. I had a thick coconut based coffee and my partner had a cold drip- both were aromatic and flavoursome.

Ten Sui, Klongtoey, Bangkok

I’ve been walking up and down Soi 16 for as long as I can remember and I never noticed Ten Sui. It’s a very private venue which seems upon first glance to be a residence. When you get inside, it’s high-end traditional sophistication. The food is divine. The sashimi is fresh, delectable and subtle, and the menu offers an array of dishes like fall-apart wagyu, individual hot pots made in a paper bowl and the smoothest sake I’ve ever had. Coming here was a real treat; I felt serenaded in a traditional Japanese way and would love to come back. Perfect setting for a business meeting.

Chinatown Seafood Restaurant, Chinatown, Singapore

Chinatown Seafood Restaurant can be summed up in three words: reliable, cheap and cheerful.

In the heart of Singapore’s Chinatown, this restaurant is located on the more touristy side so it catches the flow of foreigners who come out of the train station looking for a feed. It’s a large establishment and serves local delicacies alongside chinese staples like fried rice and wok-fried vegetables.

The food is tasty and reliable- you’ll be able to find something you like even if you’re a tentative traveler.
