Straits Kitchen - Singapore on a Plate!

Dinner that night was at Straits Kitchen, one the finest restaurants in Singapore. Located in the Grand Hyatt, Singapore the restaurant is inspired by Singapore and serves the best of local cuisine in a contemporary 'market place' setting. The buffet offers an endless array of local flavours from the halal-certified Chinese, Malay and Indian theatre-kitchens including Singapore Laksa, Nasi Goreng, Hainanese Chicken Rice and Roti Paratha with Chicken Curry. Straits Kitchen celebrates everything that is delicious about Singapore food under one roof. If you have just one meal in Singapore, I would recomend you make it at Straits Kitchen because all of Singporean cuisine is on the plate here!

Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 6.30 am to 12.00 midnight.
