Marina Bay Sands has lots to offer – from hotel rooms and luxury suites to among the best high-end shopping experiences in South East Asia. The property is certainly one of Singapore’s most celebrated skyline and house to the many celebrity chef restaurants in the city.
Bread Street Kitchen
Among the newer additions to Marina Bay Sand’s portfolio of star chef restaurants, Bread Street Kitchen is informal yet classy – similar to the London factory outlet where the menu is British European seasonal, and fixings.
If you happen to opt for breakfast, check out the Avocado on Toast – straightforward yet well prepared. Though the service staff is preferred by me during the nighttime session better service is reasonably efficient. For a lighter option, try the pineapple carpaccio.
Bread Street Kitchen in Singapore is helmed by Chef Sabrina Stillhart, who worked with Gordon Ramsay at London’s Bread Street Kitchen. Some of the items I particularly enjoyed was the Tamarind Spiced Chicken Wings, Fish & Chips and Slow-roasted Dingley Dell Pork Belly.
An iconic landmark along the Marina Bay waterfront, ArtScience Museum explores the creative processes of culture, science, technology and art. Across three floors, ArtScience Museum sponsor permanent displays as well as international exhibits with 21 gallery spaces.
Some of the exhibits I’ve that is memorable attended comprise Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Ceaseless, Big Bang Info and Graffiti Nature.
The second restaurant of Chef Wolfgang Puck, Spago is situated on level 57 of Marina Bay Sands Towers, overlooking the resort’s infinity pool. I love the big eye tuna tartare cone with chili aioli (Spago’s trademark) and the veal ragout with recently made tagliatelle.
If you’re on the lookout for luxury goods, the Personal Shopping at The Shoppes would come in handy. Catered for VIP shoppers, the experience was created to fulfill your every need – all you need to do is register online with your details (apparel and shoe size, preferred brands).
Come evening, head over to Spago’s rooftop bar and cocktail lounge, decked with small cabanas, plus pillows and low table – ideal for drinks after work, where you get a view of the city skyline and garden.
It is S$250 (maximum 3 hours) and you get an additional S$250 shopping coupon when you purchase more than S$1,000. The Personal Shopping experience also includes a complimentary Aroma Profiling by Penhaligon’s and high tea at TWG Tea Salon.
Epicurean Market is a yearly event by Marina Bay Sands’, featuring the finest from the celeb chefs such as David Myers, Daniel Boulud, Justin Quek and Tetsuya Wakuda. This year, the occasion bridges across Halls A, B and C on Level 1 of the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, with a Farmer’s Market where fresh produce and gourmet items can be found for purchase and more than 50 booths.
