Spending more than an hour on that midday meal never seems feasible in Singapore, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on a great lunch deal the next time you have a day off or you're entertaining a business client. We've scouted for the best lunch sets around town in terms of quality and value, and here are our top five picks.
Bedrock Bar and Grill
With a cosy woody interior that reminds you of a quaint wine cellar, Bedrock Bar and Grill is a perfect lunch venue away from the bustle of the office crowd. The smoky-flavoured chopped steak cheese burger with tangy whiskey mustard and peppery grilled ribeye dressed in creamy Diane sauce are our current favourites for mains.
There is a good selection of sides to choose from, like the artisanal mac and cheese that is just light enough to balance your hearty main, and the Grill’s rich and buttery mashed potatoes made using only Yukon Gold potatoes.
Price: S$26 - $32 (two-course); S$32 - S$38 (three-course)
Bedrock Bar and Grill, 96 Somerset Road, #01-05 Pan Pacific Serviced Suites, +65 6238 0054
Highlights from the quaint Boathouse includes the Petunia ocean trout dressed in creamy rouille and celeriac remoulade, and the poached Foie Gras (“au torchon”) with caramelised nylon olives from the choice of starters. Mains like the roasted Challon duck breast -- which has a wonderful citrus touch -- and moist braised brisket of beef are equally memorable. Finish off with a classic tiramisu with a touch of coffee soil -- chef's signature -- or a warm chocolate beignet.
Price: S$25 (two-course); S$32 (three-course)
