Singapore: a mecca for diverse dining

September 13, 2018 Dining No Comments Email Email

From street food to succulent seafood, to fine dining, delicious heritage dishes and more, Singapore is famed for its incredible array of diverse dining. The Fullerton Heritage precinct is home to a selection of the city’s most sought-after tables, situated in spectacular buildings in the heart of Singapore, with the best views of the Marina Bay and the infamous Singapore skyline.

The Fullerton Heritage precinct is Singapore’s focal point for waterfront dining. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore are unique elements of the precinct, alongside The Fullerton Waterboat House, One Fullerton, The Fullerton Pavilion, Clifford Pier and Customs House.

Dining your way around the precinct requires some planning and is best done on an empty stomach. The culinary teams at The Fullerton Hotel and The Fullerton Bay Hotel have compiled a helpful guide to the must-try food and beverage offerings in this one-of-a-kind precinct, showcasing a connection between the best of a bygone era and modern-day Singapore.

 Dining at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore

Enjoy a delectable array of dining selections, with five restaurants and bars to discover.

 Town Restaurant

Town Restaurant is the perfect choice for a power breakfast, business lunch or pre-theatre dinner and renowned for redefining the buffet, with a choice of international, Asian and gourmet seafood dishes. If you’re in town over the weekend don’t miss the lavish Sunday Champagne brunch.

Must-tries: everyone’s favourite is the Town Laksa – delicious noodles in a spicy flavourful coconut broth. Also try what is often touted as Singapore’s national dish – the Hainanese chicken rice, with tender poached chicken, aromatic rice and a garlic chilli dip. A luxe take on a perennial local favourite, the Lobster Nasi Lemak marries a whole succulent lobster with coconut scented rice.


With more than 10 years at the fore of Singapore’s Cantonese cuisine scene, Jade’s refurbished interior includes specially commissioned wallpaper, evocative lantern lighting, private rooms and a jade colour palette – all of which provide a picture-perfect backdrop for the exquisite Cantonese flavours on the menu.

Must-tries: dim sum served in piping hot traditional bamboo baskets; simmered egg noodles with Boston lobster and X.O. chilli sauce; and daily double-boiled soups.

The Lighthouse Restaurant & Rooftop Bar

Perched on the very top of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is The Lighthouse Restaurant and Bar – in the exact location where, in the 20th century, a beacon guided mariners to safety at the Singapore port. Authentic Italian is on the menu with a dazzling drinks list to match, and a mesmerising view of Singapore’s skyline and the Marina Bay waterfront. From 5.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.daily, enjoy aperitifs with complimentary Italian bites such as bruschetta and olives.

Must-try: aperol spritz topped with prosecco and refreshing soda. 

The Courtyard

Located in the atrium lobby, The Courtyard is bathed in natural light and lively ambience. Famed for its afternoon tea offering, including dedicated gluten-free and vegetarian menus. Sink into plush sofas and enjoy the sounds of a harpist during afternoon tea and weekends, with a jazz quartet in the evenings.

Must try: traditional English afternoon tea.

The Fullerton Cake Boutique

Choose from a wide selection of cakes, tarts, traditional sweets and more at The Fullerton’s very own dessert boutique. To mark the 90th anniversary of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, the aptly named “Mile Zero” cake is a special addition on the menu – think rich layers of chocolate mousse perfectly balanced with tart rosella cremeux. Mile Zero – which the Fullerton Building was known as during its time as the General Post Office – is the point from which all of Singapore was measured in road distances before postcodes were implemented.

Must-tries: heritage confections such as the kueh lapis, layer upon layer of rich cake in an assortment of flavours.

Taste your way around The Fullerton Bay Hotel, Singapore

With four restaurants and bars to discover, The Fullerton Bay Hotel has plenty of options to tempt your tastebuds.

The Clifford Pier

Preserving the hawker culture of Singapore, The Clifford Pier is a dining destination hosting a melting pot of cultural cuisine, with a menu of traditional delicacies. Heritage Afternoon Tea takes place daily, where each item is a representation of local influences that reflect Singapore’s culinary past and present. On weekends, there’s a Heritage Dim Sum Brunch with roving trolleys that evoke a nostalgic vibe.

Must-try: soup kambing, a traditional mutton soup infused with local spices.

La Brasserie

Featuring a curated menu of French classics and a distinct approach to detail, La Brasserie dishes up everything from steak dinners to brunch. Enjoy spectacular views of the Marina Bay waterfront from spacious salons, a private room, or the al fresco terrace.

Must-tries: the Saturday brunch with create-your-own Bloody Mary and gin parlour stations.

Lantern Rooftop Bar

Reflective of Singapore’s vibrant cosmopolitan style, Lantern is the place to see and be seen. The perfect spot for a nightcap, unwind with dazzling panoramic views of the Marina Bay waterfront and Singapore skyline, while sipping on world-class cocktails and specialty spirits.

Must-tries: the aptly named Red Lantern cocktail – sip on a zesty concoction comprising tequila watermelon, cucumber and lime. Round two? Opt for the Merlion cocktail – a Singapore icon.

The Landing Point

Stretched along an elegant indoor promenade paved with bespoke marble mosaics and gold hues, with a majestic 13-metre long bar is where you will find The Landing Point, a favourite for afternoon tea.

Must-tries: salted chocolate caramel tart, English scones and smoked salmon mille feuille with caviar.
