Why They Won: It was supposed to be My Secret Garden that got the Best Patio for dining, but it seems that they would rather put it on display now than let returning customers use it. It’s now a showroom that isn’t used unless you’re willing to fork out $1000 or more to eat on tables covered with mahjong paper. What an excellent business model. So we’ve given the win to Pre Rouge instead. Surrounded by Palm trees and green, it’s possible to imagine you’re actually in a garden, except for Orchard Rd right in front of you. We love its great view, and that you can people watch as you eat or enjoy a cold one.
House Specialty: The kitchen serves up tasty morsels from east to west so every gustatory palette will be satisfied.
Bet You Didn’t Know: Alex To loves to go there to eat when he’s in Singapore.
