“A Dream Castaway”
Renaissance Koh Samui Resort + Spa is an excellent romantic getaway, perched on a hill that slopes towards an endless sapphire blue sea. Tranquil yet packed with all modern facilities for the comfort of guests, I was fortunate enough to experience this amazing resort in Koh Samui courtesy of our travel partners Skyscanner, Bangkok Airways and of course, Marriott Hotel Group.
As we all know, brunch is becoming a staple in most of our daily Singapore lifestyles nowadays, allowing for a late morning sleep-in especially during weekends. To add on, many cafes serving this daily staple has captured the hearts (and stomachs) of many here in our very own Singapore island.
A huge aficionado of the breakfast-lunch combo myself, with its plethora of egg dishes, I often find myself spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing brunch places to dine from. There are just too many! But here at sethlui.com, we managed to narrow it down to a few noteworthy cafes serving brunch that are definitely worth the trip for a fully satiated stomach this weekend.
Just short of a few MRT stations away from Orchard is Novena / Thomson Road – a quieter district that has her own charm and offerings. Unlike the bustling Orchard road, Novena is an area of residential and commercial services more on the outskirts of town.
Nestled in this coveted residential district are actually many hidden F&B haunts that serve delectable food at wallet-friendly prices. As someone who works at Novena, and having to find interesting meals everyday lest I die of boredom, I’ve put together this handy food guide.
I’ve also split the guide into 3 categories: the more affordable and cheap options below $5, averagely priced at $15, or if its pay day, dining options below $30.
Here are 15 must try places to eat for those who work and live in Novena and Thomson Road.
“Old Beef Noodle Taste now in Orchard”
Dating back to 1911, Hock Lam Beef brings its rich cultural history and traditional roots right smack into the heart of our busy, vibrant city, in ION Orchard itself.
“Best Scrambled Eggs Ever”
With its roots originating all the way from distant Barcelona, Club Meatballs presents to us an unique and authentic Spanish brunch that will certainly leave you clamouring for more.
This new F&B space is actually comprised of an open restaurant that serves a choose-your-own-adventure style meatballs experience, and a cold-pressed juice kiosk at the back where they also sell furniture.
“The simple pleasures”
Set up in a idyllic platform above the main road, the Providore seemingly allows one to detach from the drain of city life, observing only as an onlooker. It also helps that their new outlet is located at Pasarbella, where deep set into the greenery, there is little hint of the busy city life all around Singapore.
