Suntec Singapore – International Convention and Exhibition Centre

Did you ever notice, the Suntec Convention Centre’s roof changes colour? It must be a little known and even lesser appreciated fact by the shoppers, since it is hardly noticeable from the street level.

Office workers rushing last minute work at night might sometimes peer out the office tower block windows. The glowing roof lights probably serve to remind them that they’re slogging in the office while across the street, a world away, fun and refreshment allude them.

Perhaps only the tourists staying in the hotels surrounding Suntec Singapore would have the time to gaze out at the thoughtfully constructed roof.

Thunder Tea Rice at Food Republic Suntec Singapore

ThunderTeaRice

If there’s one vegetarian dish that I could eat everyday, it’s Thunder Tea Rice. Ok I know I added an egg to make the meal more interesting, but I’ve had Thunder Tea Rice without extras many times and I’ve loved it every single time. The combination of crunchy vegetables, together with tofu, ikan bilis and peanuts goes really well with the rice. Btw I ordered brown rice to be really healthy. When I was younger, I didn’t like brown rice at all. But now, to me brown rice tastes just as good as white rice. And this Thunder Tea Rice stall at Suntec’s Food Republic serves a really good mint broth. I hope they didn’t add any MSG in it or it’ll lessen the goodness of this dish.

Pearl River Palace at Suntec Singapore Convention Centre – CLOSED

Update: With great sadness, I announce that Pearl River Palace will be closing down for good from 3 January 2011. (Closing down = Poof, no more there! It’s not moving somewhere else so don’t google for it!) Victoria Peak Restaurant is set to move in 18 January 2011. I only hope that Victoria Peak’s dim sum is as good as Pearl River Palace’s. If not, that’s 1 less place to have good dim sum in Singapore.

Where to find the best dim sum in Singapore? In my opinion, Pearl River Palace is one of the best places to have Dim Sum (also known as Yum Cha). The Dim Sum and service is hotel standard even though the prices are not. I always think that the mark of a good restaurant is seen in its Har Gow. Pearl River Palace’s Har Gow has humongous and succulent prawns in them, wrapped up in a deliciously thin and light dumpling skin. It’s making me salivate just thinking about it!!!

Each basket costs about $4, which is pretty much the same price as any other cheaper looking restaurant. Being located in the convention centre, their restaurant is humongous. You can almost always get a table on the weekends even if you don’t make a reservation.

Ask for a table by the windows and you can watch the world go by as you dine. PRP also has a buffet Dim Sum for about $35, which you should only go for if you are extremely hungry.
