Gardens by the Bay may span 101 hectares, but when your stomach starts to grumble, you will find yourself heading to one of their dining areas. In our case, we opted to have our lunch at Supertree Dining because that was the closest place pointed out to us by one of the staff. Haha!
Supertree Dining is a large food court with a few restaurants to choose from. While taking pictures of the nearby supertrees, my travel buddies picked Hill Street Coffee Shop. Though its name doesn't suggest, they serve good food which pleased our stomachs as well as our pockets. Here's what we ordered (mos of the description copied verbatim from their menu):
1. Traditional Singapore laksa - Spicy curry and coconut milk based broth with thick vermicelli, cockles, prawns, shredded chicken, bean sprouts, sliced egg and fish cake
2. Crispy and tender homemade pork roll (ngoh hiang) - Aromatic marinated minced meat and taro with our chef's special ingredients wrapped in bean curd skin and friend to golden perfection.
3. Vegetarian spring roll - A variety of brunoise vegetables infused with spices and wrapped with a thin layer of pastry wrapper, a delicious crispy treat.
3. Otak - Spicy fish paste in banana leaf.
5. Crispy fried lemongrass marinated chicken nasi lemak - Marinated chicken thigh, deep fried to a delightful crisp. Perfect for those who like a bit of crunch in their meal.
6. Drinks - Froggie wanted some soda after our lunch, so we ordered cans of coke and sprite.
Budget per person is about SGD 8-15.
