Racines

The gor­geous earth-toned din­ing room is ac­cented in comely shades of blue and of­fers a view of the tree-lined busi­ness district out­side. In­side, the ser­vice is warm and at­ten­tive—earnest staff ex­plain the menu that brings to­gether clas­sic French cui­sine (the likes of lob­ster bisque and braised beef cheek) and Sin­ga­porean Chi­nese fare such as chilli crab. Be­cause these cuisines are dis­tinctly dif­fer­ent from each other, the choice can be dif­fi­cult; din­ers of­ten feel as if they must stick to one or the other. It is, how­ever, a great place for for­eign vis­i­tors (par­tic­u­larly those stay­ing in the ho­tel) to sam­ple el­e­gant ren­di­tions of lo­cal favourites or sate those home­sick palates with fa­mil­iar West­ern dishes.

TATLER TIP

Stick to the el­e­gantly ex­e­cuted clas­sic Sin­ga­porean Chi­nese dishes such as the sweet-and-sour pork. Come for the break­fast buf­fet—the of­fer­ings are plenty and the set­ting is gor­geous.
