Like no other mall in Singapore, Cluny Court is blessed to be located in lovely, leafy Bukit Timah, at one end of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Beyond retail therapy, sate your hunger at its various restaurants, or pick up ingredients at its fine-food purveyors.
Here’s where to go for comfort food made chic.
Fusion-food experts Relish by Wild Rocket’s menu features the best of East and West. Soft Shell Chilli Crab Burger ($19.80) pays homage to the popular Singapore dish – it comes with the great tasting sauce, without the trouble of dealing with the crab shell. There’s also the Hae Bee Hiam Spaghettini ($22.80), which is tossed in aromatic sambal belachan (shrimp chilli paste).

NEXT: Bar Bar Black Sheep →
Contrary to what its name suggests, Bar Bar Black Sheep is more of a one-stop al fresco chill spot by day. Must-tries on the menu of North Indian, Thai and Western cuisine: the Seafood Phad Thai Noodles ($13.90) and the stir-fried Chicken Biryani ($12.00) that’s great for those who want their dishes a little spicier. Plus, it’s a great watering hole for after-work drinks such as cocktails, premium spirits and bottled beer and wines.

The bar also has a good selection of bagels ($2.90) that come with fl avoured cream cheeses such as Dill & Onion ($4.20) or Maple Walnut & Raisins ($4.90).
