Blue Lotus – Chinese Eating House
The casual Chinese restaurant is helmed by owner Ricky Ng, who offers Chinese cuisine with a modern spin. If you are a first-time visitor, order their signature dish, the robust Chilli Pomelo Crab ($9/100g); Sri Lankan crab drizzled with refreshing pomelo bits. A standout from among the dishes is the Hickory Smoked Honey-Glazed Kurobuta Pork Ribs ($38). The ribs are gently grilled in a Josper grill to yield tender meat and leave a sweet-smokey aftertaste on the palate.

Joe & the Juice
This is the Danish juice chain’s second outlet in Singapore and what sets it apart from many others is the energy that it emits once you enter the store; the staff is friendly, bubbly and chatty – which is always a plus in our books.
Enjoy the benefits of freshly blended juices like the Power Shake, a creamy blend of fresh strawberries, banana and vanilla milk. Joe & the Juice also offers a selection of coffee and healthy sandwiches like Joes Club Sandwich ($9.90), their take on the classic club which includes chicken slices, avocado, pesto and tomato sandwiched between their signature toasted flatbread.
