Where to eat at Marina Bay Sands

Since I have been going to Marina Bay Sands pretty often lately, I thought I’d do a summary on cheap places to dine at at MBS. Don’t be fooled into thinking that you have to pay through your ear and nose when at MBS, there are cheap dining options if you know where to go. Of course, MBS is also known for its high-end, celebrity restaurants too. A number of them overlook the MBS casino area. It’s quite mind-boggling, the rows of poker tables and slot machines there are, it takes a few seconds before the eyes get oriented to what you’re actually seeing. Make sure that you learn some poker skills if you want to try your hand at the poker tables. For me, just the slot machines on their own are able to entice me for hours. Anywaysss…

The cheapest place to have a meal at Marina Bay Sands is at the food court. There are 2 food courts, Rasapura Masters and 1983 A Taste of Nanyang. Rasapura Masters is huge, and faces the skating rink. 1983 is much smaller, with some booth seats too. There are about 5 or 6 stalls, so there is no need to worry about a lack of variety. They are located at the opposite ends of each other, so I guess the choice depends on where you are when the tummy starts growling.

The cheapest place to have a cup of tea or coffee at MBS (apart from at the food court) is undoubtedly at ToastBox. Actually, this is one of the most expensive ToastBox in Singapore, with a teh going at about $2. But it’s cheap if you consider that you’re at MBS. This is where you can get a slice of cake at an affordable price of about $3. Sure, the cake is not that big, but it’s something to munch on while having gentle conversation.

The cheapest place to have a steak at MBS is at SouthCoast, on Mondays. On Mondays, from 6.30pm, you can get a super affordable set dinner for only $15. You get the steak, plus a glass of wine or a beer! The steak’s not the best of steaks, but STILL!!! The rest of the SouthCoast menu is pretty affordable too, and I love it that they have interesting options like pies, rolls and Antipodean favourites.

One of my favourite, MUST GO restaurants at MBS is Au Chocolate! Even if you don’t dine there, you must at least WALK PAST IT! If it isn’t evident enough from the name, let me tell you upfront. Au Chocolate is a chocolate and sweeties wonderland! There is a huge cake display, with the most luscious looking cakes beckoning to you. There is an ice-cream gelato stand. If you’re lucky, you can also view chocolate pralines and truffles being made on the spot at the see through kitchen preparation area. The chocolate bars, sweet buckets, jelly beans and more, it’s tough walking out empty handed. Food is pretty affordable at the restaurant café. Burgers are about $20, crepes around $20 too, milkshakes $10. If you don’t know what to order, may I suggest the Fish & Chips? Their fries are great!

DB Bistro Moderne and Osteria/Pizzeria Mozza are nice places to dine too. I wouldn’t consider it cheap to dine there, but there are dishes you can order which don’t break the bank. For example, a lot of the DB Bistro Moderne main courses go around $35 onwards. Look out for their daily specials, which can be really attractive. The last time I was there they had a bucket of mussels go for $26, and the portion was enough to fill for dinner. Pizzeria Mozza’s pizzas go around $30 too, and if you are small eaters, can be shared!

I wish I could recommend you the Celebrity Restaurant I tried, unfortunately it closed down because the owner died, in Singapore no less! It was a treat to dine at Santi, a memorable evening I will never forget.

What to eat for cheap at Marina Bay Sands MBS? Now you know. Smile

Got 2 free tickets to the Titanic exhibition at the ArtScience Museum.

Pizzeria Mozza - (3)

So we took the opportunity to dine at Marina Bay Sands. We chose Pizzeria Mozza because I have already been to DB Moderne and I wanted something in a similar price range.

I’ve kinda been avoiding trying out Pizzeria Mozza or Osteria Mozza for that matter because last year, we had a most horrid time at Osteria Mozza. The music was blaring like nobody’s business and we happened to sit right under the speakers. The noise level in the restaurant was horrendous because everyone was trying to outtalk the speakers. I can’t imagine why people would want the music so loud, when most of the diners were middle aged people! Thank goodness Mozza has since turned off the racket so I was okay to dine at Pizzeria Mozza.

As you can see from the photo above, the place looks nice and relaxing. There’s an open kitchen for you to entertain yourself if your partner isn’t entertaining enough.

Pizzeria Mozza - Cheesy Dough Sticks

They served us complimentary cheesy dough sticks. I though they were pretty nice, being crispy and cheesy. The Partner thought that they were too salty and he stopped at one. YAY for me.

Pizzeria Mozza - Melons with Prawns, Chiles and Mint

We ordered this appetiser of melons with prawns in a kind of tangy chilli sauce $17. The first bite was really refreshing as the sweetness of the melons in the soury chilli sauce gave me a good wake up jolt. The prawns were fresh tasting and succulent. However, I found the dish to be way too spicy for my liking. It’s hard to imagine food in a Western Restaurant being spicy, but this one can beat any Thai restaurant! I had to let my taste buds rest after a while.

Pizzeria Mozza - Parma ham, Rucola and Mozzarella Pizza (3) 
We also ordered a Prosciutto di Parma with rucola, tomato and mozzarella pizza $31 to share. They were extremely generous with the Parma ham but too generous with the rucola. I personally don’t like rucola because I find it to be bitter. I guess I should have eaten the rucola with the parma, but it was hard to since it wasn’t sticking to anything and falling all over the place. On the whole the pizza was delicious. The crust was nice too even though it wasn’t my favourite type of crust. The pizza base at Mozza is kind of crispy at first bite, then chewy in the middle.

Pizzeria Mozza - Italian Inventions

Love the placemats they gave. Very educational. I had no idea liposuction was invented by the Italians. And the parachute. And the scissors.
