Nowhere else I'd rather be
There is only one place in Singapore that I will go to on a moment’s notice and without hesitation – Great World City.
Great World City has everything. While it’s not enough to put in a single review, let’s just zoom down to my favorite restaurant in the mall. Have you heard of Pepper’s? Pepper’s is located #01-66/67, an eatery jointly connected with The Pump Room. It serves a mean steak, excellent breakfast and freshly brewed beer courtesy of the neighbor bar. For the Micheline-worthy food they sell, the dishes are reasonably priced ($16 - $30’s). The place oozes understated class and is semi-fine dining. It is a great place for dates to impress and social gatherings.
I’ve had my first date there, and when we were not getting happily fed and slightly tipsy from their tasteful beers, we were enjoying their classic music (George Benson, Air Supply) while humming shamelessly to it. The waiting for the food may run a little longer on weekends but hey, well worth it.
A must-go place if you’re a food lover and a wine connoisseur. I have heard they serve great coffee too but I’ve never been an appreciator so try it yourself and let me know!

I have always been wanting to check this place out since its near our place and also after reading minicolee's glowing review of it. Not wanting to blow a fortune at the super expensive diners, we decided to give this place a try on valentine's day.
The Valentine's day set was priced at $128+ per couple, so $150 after tax. It was a 3 course menu so we made a point to order different dishes. Their ambiance is definitely different, it feels like a charming old school American diner with music your grandparents listen to playing in the background. This is juxtaposed with the vibrant bar "pump room" next door who's entrance is connected through a side door.
For the starters their Oyster shot was literally a large fat oyster with a mojito shot and flavorful prawns to go along with it. Chloe complained the oyster wasn't fresh. The other starter we had - the foie gras duck confit lacked oomph and felt average. For the mains we had their famed New Zealand Grass Fed ‘Savannah’ Sirloin Steaks. It was good, wouldn't say it was exceptional though and I wasn't a fan of the sauce used. Instead of fries it came with crispy polenta cakes which tasted like a mix of tofu and potato. Would have preferred the free flow of fries!
Deserts were disappointing. Chloe remarked her creme brulee was nothing like a creme brulee. The caramelized portion was way too hard and it tasted like crunchy candy and not in a good way. My chocolate mousse was really average and something you could pick off the desert counter of any buffet.
Service was inattentive, they were clearly understaffed for vday and our glasses of water were only refilled upon explicitly requesting. Their saving grace has to be their great steaks and presentation of dishes. Don't expect much more and you will be happy.
