Landing Point at Fullerton Bay Hotel

After lunch at The Fullerton Hotel, we strolled along the One Fullerton area and finally found ourselves at the new Fullerton Bay Hotel. I have to say, it is such a pretty looking place! It has a old world charm to it, everyone knows about the history of Collyer Quay, yet it looks as posh as can be.

Because the Fullerton Bay Hotel looked so nice, we couldn’t leave just like that so we decided to enjoy the hotel by having a cuppa at The Landing Point. The Landing Point also serves afternoon tea just like its sister hotel Fullerton Hotel.

The many things you can do with coffee before drinking it…The coffee cost 10 bucks. Pricey, but then again, no more expensive than most other hotels in Singapore.

Chairs like these are found all over the hotel. Seems like people love sitting in them and having a picture taken. No less than 5 couples did that during the time we were there.

Fullerton Bay Hotel - Elevators

If you want to, you can even find a seat in front of the elevators to scrutinise each and every guest. Or are those seats meant for overly pampered people who can’t stand while waiting?

Wonder if I should book a room for Christmas or New Year’s Eve?

Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie

Canele is finally back at Raffles City again. In fact, most of the restaurants and eateries are now open, except for the bit next to the the original fountain where Out of the Pan used to be. The basement is so changed it is like being in a completely different mall altogether. Some old names are still here, such as Cedele, Aerins, The Pizza Place and Teahouse The Asian Kitchen, with new decor and layout. There are a lot of new takaway stalls: – Best Fries Forever, Chewy Junior, Awfully Chocolate, 1A Curry Puff and Potato Depot to name a few. You won’t go hungry when you are at Raffles City Shopping Mall, that you can be sure.

Anyway, back to Canele. They have this maroon pink decor going on, which looks quite nice. The lampshades they have all over the place look pretty and makes the place feel special. And they still have the huge glass counter with different coloured macaroons displayed neatly and all calling out your name. It’s so distracting!

Menu-wise, it seems the same as before so I knew exactly what to order.

Canele - Croque Madame

  Croque Madame $13.50 – I used to like this dish, but now I feel that I am just eating empty calories with very little nutrients. It’s basically bread drenched with lots of cheese and a few slices of ham.

Canele - Cheese Burger

Canele Cheese Burger $15.50 – The burger was nice but pretty average. The chips were great though. Based on the texture, it seems the chef sliced and fried these potato chips onsite instead of getting them from a packet.

Canele - Carrot Water

Mint and carrot water is complementary
