Advice on Restaurant guidebook

Post by pierrealain » Mon, 01 Sep 2008 7:15 pm

Hello,

I arrived recently in Singapore and I am a bit lost with all the restaurants available in the city... I feel that you really need to know the good ones if you want to avoid bad surprises...

Do you have any recommendation of a good guidebook for restaurants ? I went to Border yesterday and found 20 different books and did not know what to choose...

Thanks !

Piet

You can try "Simply dining", they have a broad choice of good addresses and it is quite up-to-date.
I also bought "RestoPass" last week, selection is more limited but you get 30% of the bill for each restaurant of the book.
Good luck with Singaporean restaurants !!

Thanks, I looked at Simply dining but it is not very convinient. I have not found RestoPass for sale ? Do you know where I could buy it ??
Also, who gets 30% ? Just you or the whole table ???
Thanks for the tip anyway

Hey,
sorry to reply a bit late !
I have bought the restopass on their website, it was delivered the next day ! I went to Au Petit Salut this week-end with the guidebook and I received a free aperitif when I showed the book !
It is really a great way to find new places, still not all restaurants mentionned are worthed.
Cheers
