After a rather average walkthrough the Jacobs Children's Garden, I have already proposed to have our dinner here at Food for Thought in Botanical Gardens. We got kinda lost.
I entered through the Nassim gate and parked at the Nparks headquarters. It was a wrong choice and we ended up walking all the way from here to the other end of the botanical gardens. I actually forgotten how big botanical gardens is. It is HUGE.
Along the way, we see streams of people coming out and probably heading to the carpark or exit. I think an event by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra has just ended. It must be nice to hear and enjoy wonderful music, out in the open. Mental note that we should try this soon!
After an 25 minutes walk, we have finally reached the Botany Centre where the Food for Thought is at. Phew. For any other people wanting to have a meal at Food for Thought and driving, park at the TANGLIN GATE! If not, you will end up building up your hungry by walking so a very long distance just to have a meal.
Since we were there after their popular brunch timing, the place was quite quiet and there were lots of seats. It was a free seating thing during that time and you had to pick your choice of food and then pay at the cashier.
I really like this part of the wall, especially on the number 3. Love your family. There is nothing in this world more important than family. Nothing. They are the ones that will be there to support you in times of happiness and sadness.
Hazel had this, Bacon and Sage Wrapped Chicken Leg ($20). I find it quite normal. In fact, the chicken leg didn't really taste very good and rather bland when you eat the inside part. The bacon wrapped part and the external was pretty nice though.
And I had the Grilled Ribeye with Honey Shallot Chuntney. ($23) Well, it was not the ribeye quality that I was looking at but this is definitely better than what I had at Outback Steakhouse just recently. I like the mushrooms sides though, that is really very appetizing.
I saw quite a few people ordering their chicken wings and thought that I should have a go at one of these. This is their three chicken wings for $5. It is quite good but not as good as the ones at Ikea. The Ikea chicken wings are just so wonderful!
My total bill is $48.00 for 2 adults.
Ice/Warm water is actually self service at one corner of the place and they have a small playground area for kids to play. This really is a good place for family type gatherings though I would not say so for their main dishes. I would probably come back again for their breakfast menu items. Heard that their pancakes are damn good!
