Blue Lotus – Chinese Eating House
Blue Lotus – Chinese Eating House elevates local and regional Asian fare into innovative culinary creations you’d never even dream of. A choice venue for commemorating special occasions, their huge second-storey private room offers unparalleled views of the entire marina.
Their Blue Lotus Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab ($8.60/100g) features a piquant, secret recipe sauce with a zesty surprise: pomelo shreds. The generous sprinkling of pomelo means each bite gives way to a burst of sweet and sour juices, effectively cutting through the richness of the yummy sauce.
Make sure to mop up every last drop with the addictive fried mantou buns and succulent crab meat.

Gin Khao Bistro
In a lush, modern setting, Gin Khao Bistro serves authentic Thai cuisine with the occasional eclectic twist.
We ordered the Khao Phat Dtaeng Moe ($14.80 for small, $25.80 for big) watermelon fried rice, a definite showstopper. Inspired by Thailand’s iconic pineapple fried rice, this upgraded version has juicy and refreshing morsels of watermelon mixed in.
For something a little more familiar, the fan-favourite Phat Thai Talay ($14.80) is a piping hot plate of pad thai noodles – sure to hit the spot. This street food staple is taken up a notch with plenty of fresh prawns, mussels and squid. Served with peanut chunks and chilli flakes at the side, you’re free to customise it to your desired spice level.

Styled after the gorgeous, sunny island of Mykonos, the restaurant is the perfect spot to spend an idyllic afternoon and feel the breeze in your hair.

Sabio By The Sea, Tapas Bar & Grill
Besides looking super swanky, we can attest that the chefs at Sabio By The Sea, Tapas Bar & Grill reeeally know their stuff.
The Ceviche de Gambas ($18) is a cold tapas dish of corn tortilla chips and guacamole with massive tiger prawns. It’s got quite a kick to it, watch out for the bits of chilli padi! We highly recommend the Soft-Shell Crab Paella ($13 for small, $18 for big), with lots of strong spices and toothsome rice.
And for dessert, the Churros ($11) are A+. Dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with caramel and chocolate dipping sauces, the insides were fluffy and not too dense.

One taste of the wood-fired oven pizzas from SolePomodoro Trattoria Pizzeria, and your love for pizza will never be the same again.

Besides the scrumptious Ortolana Pizza ($22) with mozzarella, tangy tomato sauce and a grilled vegetable medley, we also sampled the Raviolo Al Tartufo ($25, truffle ravioli) and Profiteroles ($16) for dessert. The ravioli is delectably rich and creamy, with walnut bits for crunch.
