Speaking of hidden gems, this one is both affordable and family-friendly! Fusion Spoon is a modern casual dining place nestled somewhere in Botanic Gardens that you have probably yet to discover.
And now that you have, there’s no excuse for you not to head there – especially if you stay in the vicinity, and are scouring for a meal in the often-overpriced area without wanting to pay for more than what you’re promised. Or if you’re a tourist, and would like to sample a variety of local as well as fusion dishes all in one location – with comfy sofas to boot!
In case you’re a mummy with your kiddo still running around and screaming in diapers, not to worry – there’s a playground right outside! And Fusion Spoon’s very own garden of herbs (“Harvest Corner”), where you can enjoy a whiff of mint whilst you catch your breath. (phew!)
Anyway, the very picturesque restaurant has quite a few signature dishes, and it’s really up to your cravings to decide what to eat.
In case you can’t decide, can have the best of both worlds too. Pizza topped with Otah?? Really fusion sia.
We preferred the Seafood Aglio Olio – SGD$7.80 only what upppp?? Seasoned pretty well, and quite generously topped with seafood! Tell me SG where to find this kind of price/quality/portion. (??)
The Braised Lamb Shank we tried was also really tender and without “that”(Lamb?) smell that some of us might find overwhelming. The Vegetable serving was really more proportionate than most places too – how does one measly leaf of lettuce count as vege?? Seriously pls enlighten me.
Their Nasi Lemak with Minangkabau Rendang Beef really quite worth it! As per the caption “aromatic coconut rice” the aroma really comes through, with the soft stickiness of the rice. Fragrant max. The Rendang Beef was also quite savoury with the lemongrass gravy.
Cute insta-worthy mini burgers also available!
They have countless other food choices, even their salad is $7++ only and can customize!!
There is seafood (eg. Fish and Chips, Honey Mustard Atlantic Salmon, Pan-seared King Snapper etc), English Breakfast Sets (Eggs Benedict where else have sell at $9.40 omg), Japanese sets, Local dishes (Nyonya Laksa, Seafood Crispy Noodles etc), even Mexican (?!) burritos!
Just look at their Bingsu Menu:
Also where to find decent Bingsu at $7.30 nowadays, pls update me? The Mango one we tried was quite Tok Kong for that price, the mango almost have that jizz-worthy alcohol kind of sweetness. And so was the Injeolmi (traditional almond powder) Bingsu. Nun Song Yee selling at $14.90 already more than twice the price leh! They have their own Korean Bingsu Ice Kiosk outside, you can enjoy the icy treat in the lazy afternoon heat after you finish touring Botanic Gardens.
You can haz waffles and ice cream too!!! Btw the mint leaves on the Bingsu and the Waffle are freshly handpicked from the herb garden! Mind-blown.
They do events as well, it’s a lovely large chill area for you to hold a nice catering event. Spacious and cosy, it’s a great venue to organise birthday parties or for private event bookings. High ceilings FTW!
Redeem FREE Bingsu with combined receipt(s) of just $70! (Only available for dinner, 6pm to 10pm)
