French style flare in Singapore

Singapore is renowned for its food and often hailed as Asia’s food capital. Critics argue Singapore is
run like a corporation and as such does not possess anything truly authentic, Asian or anything else
waxing lyrical about for that matter. Of course I could prove all those critics wrong simply by
suggesting they might consider traipsing around the city state for a bit longer than a few days. And
that they may head further afield than central shopping boulevard Orchard road. One thing most
people can agree on though, is Singapore’s fantastic culinary landscape. And while I am also a huge
fan of the local culinary offerings in neighbouring country Malaysia, what I truly love about Singapore
is their ability to provide top notch Asian as well as Western food. Whether it’s fine dining in a five
star hotel or local food in a heartland based food court, known as a hawker centre, Singapore may be
highly commercial, but their top quality food will always remain just that. One of my favourite,
relatively new, haunts in the Lion city is Parisian inspired French tea room Antoinette’s. Antoinette’s
now has three outlets and provides the perfect setting for a spot of afternoon tea, some classic
French dishes, cakes and pastries or a dizzying array of macaroons. One of my all-time favourites is
their classic onion soup, which literally transports me back to France. With the holiday season
currently in full swing, I can imagine Antoinette’s packs a punch with their delectable Christmas
