My City: Angela May
The perfect day in Singapore for the culinary designer of Angela May Food Chapters (#02-02 Robinsons The Heeren, 260 Orchard Rd., 6681-7440, S(238855)).
How has the F&B scene evolved in Singapore in the last few years? So many new and progressive restaurants have popped up over the years. At a moment's notice, you can find an incredible place to serve any whim.
What are some exciting developments in F&B we should look out for? A lot more small urban farms popping up and more people becoming more aware of where their food comes from. Diners are smarter now and no longer order a gluten-free steak.
Name two of your favorite places to eat out in Singapore. Keng Eng Kee Seafood (#01- 136,124 Bukit Merah Ln. 1, 6272- 1038, S(150124)) for a delicious claypot liver with ginger and onions, and Forlino (#02-06, One Fullerton 1 Fullerton Rd., S(049213)) for amazing pasta.
Where do you like to go to unwind after work? L’Entrecôte Wine Bar (36 Duxton Hill, 6690 7561, S(089614)), as I love sitting outdoors, surrounded by the heritage shophouses in the area. They have great happy hour specials. too.
My Perfect Day
7am - Start the day on a relaxing note.
My usual routine consists of having my coffee, and then walking the dog at the Botanic Gardens (1 Cluny Rd., S(259569)).
8:30am - Squeeze in a quick workout.
After which, I put in a bit of gym time while listening to some of my favorite podcasts.
11am - Have breakfast with a view.
One of my favorite brunch spots is Sabio by the Sea (#01-02 Quayside Isle, 31 Ocean Way, S(098373)), for a few glasses of wine and tapas.
5pm - Shopping with friends.
I’ll then make a trip to Robinsons The Heeren (260 Orchard Rd., 6738-4388, S(238855), www.robinsons.com.sg/theheeren) to get design inspiration at the homewares department.
7pm - Dinner.
I like to end my day with a leisurely meal among friends at home, or along the waterfront.
