Housed in the picturesque Flower Dome, this fine dining restaurant takes cues from flora and fauna.
Gardens by the Bay may be touristy, but siting back in a gorgeous, greenhouse-like space, surrounded by exotic flora while dining on chef Jason Atherton's modern Mediterranean fare like Patagonian toothfish with kefir tzatziki; or the salmon with earl gray tea and soft shell crab; is more than worth the visit. Be sure to spare a few minutes for the action happening behind the nine-meter long dessert bar.
This may be the only restaurant located within a dome but the focus on the food doesn't waver. The Sydney Rock Oysters slide down sensually aided by soy, citrus and dashi pickled shallots and for meat-lovers, the rangers valley rib eye premium cut is grain-fed and served with oxtail, charred eggplant and beautifully smoked potatoes. For dessert, Executive Pastry Chef Andres Lara crafts beauts like the beetroot and apple, hibiscus-infused apples with salted milk chocolate, pine nut sable and beetroot sorbet.
Don't miss: Lemon meringue at POLLEN. It's one of I-S Magazine's 50 things to eat in Singapore before you die (2012).
