I need some help with local FOOD and PLACES!!! :???:

Postby teee3 » Wed, 07 Sep 2011 11:48 am

My friend is going to visit me in a week time...The clock is ticking... So I will be very appreciated if you guys could help me to narrow down my list.
I am looking for:

1. Night food market (if possible, please tell me the closing time of the place)
2. Any good restaurants that serve famous Singaporean signature dishes
3. Any romantic place for spending a relaxing afternoon/evening.

OR just any good things in Singapore! Many thanks

There's a bar on the roof of one of the high rises in the CBD - I think it's called Altitude. You get a good view, it costs about $20 or so to go up there but you get a drink included in that (which is a better deal than the Marina Bay Sands rooftop where you get no drink and loads of tourists :) )

People talk about Lau Pa Sat being good........and it is......but the trouble with it is that it's not that busy in the evenings and a lot of the stalls shut up shop once the business crowds have gone. The main exception being the statay stalls which open up around there in the evening.............great if you like satay (I don't). If you don't like satay best to go elsewhere to eat.

Chinatown may be busy - is it still the lantern festival? I think so - in which case it'll be pretty happening around there in the evenings at the moment. I think there's also a lantern thing going on around the river (Clarke Quay area) which could be worth a stroll along.

But most other things I can think of are mentioned on the link that SMS has posted.

Zones are defined generally by cardinal directions or positions, and are bigger in size than the Areas (see below). Zones often overlap at the edges with bordering zones, and so are more inclusive. The term "City", as used here, refers to the central business and shopping districts including Chinatown, Orchard Road, Little India, Marina areas, Beach Road, Shenton Way, Raffles Place and River Valley Road.

You know aiken, I'm sensing that your waffle-zone and spam-zone are coinciding here.

@OP: If you want a cheaper view of the city, you can also go to the Pinnacle @Duxton. Just use your EZlink card for the $5 entrance fee. :) But no free drinks. I think you can bring your own. :P
