Just curious,,, how much would expats or even local executives pay for business lunches?

About S$50 per head.

My ideal lunch? Laksa at ECSC foud court. If I'm not mistaken Sing$ 3,- Iced Milo to go with that, and a fruit platter for dessert. Anyone treating me to a meal of this quality gets a tick in my 'memorable' book. Another delicious one: Dry wantan. Same place, several stalls down. Price is 3 bucks also.

As if a great lunch only comes when priced in excess of this amount. Notice how your meals need to be looked for using a loupe when prices range in your suggested stratospheric altitude. The garnish tends to suddenly feature alll too prominently in those places. Where's the food???

The emperor with his new clothes come to mind.

That's not the one. That one caters to Ang moh mostly, most of it sea food. I tried them, but found it not too bad, not too good. Staff a little too pushy also.

For authentic local makan, you want to try right next door to there, the food-court formerly know as Rendez-Vous. They've just upgraded the entire place and.... it is now better! Yes, none of the over-the-top marble, brass and ostentatious what-have-yous. Rather, it's still open-air, quite stylish terra-cotta broken tiling, plenty of green patches, wooden walkway-covers, sturdy wooden dining sets and even cabanas. Very sweet, almost Mediterranean.

And the food? Some of the best. Clientele is local office workers, as well as expat surfer types. Nice atmosphere, affable and laid-back stall owners too. Yes, my favorite.
