What to eat at the Singapore Botanic Gardens

This is an updated article to the previous What to eat at the Singapore Botanic Gardens that I wrote quite some years back. A lot has changed since then. Not only has our beloved Singapore Botanic Gardens been inscribed as a World Heritage Site on 4th July 2015, it has also seen a number of significant expansions in the form of the new Learning Forest, the new Gallop Extension, newly redeveloped Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden and National Orchid Garden. If you’ve not visited the Singapore Botanic Gardens in recent years, you really should! In fact, I think it would take several days to fully cover every single aspect of the Gardens, as the area is so vast!

So, the question is, what is there to eat at the Singapore Botanic Gardens? There are quite a number of F&B options at the Gardens suiting all budgets, ranging from a Michelin-starred fine-dining restaurant, to casual restaurants and cafes, takeaway kiosks and even a food court. As the Botanic Gardens is so huge, I will segment the F&B outlets by location:

– Bukit Timah Gate (nearest Botanic Gardens MRT Station)

– Nassim Gate

– Tyersall Gate

– Tanglin Gate (nearest to Gleneagles Hospital and bus stop with buses to Orchard Road)

These are also where the car parks are located. If you refer to the Singapore Botanic Gardens map, the Bukit Timah Gate is on the far right, followed by Nassim Gate and Tyersall Gate in the middle of the Gardens, and Tanglin Gate on the far left.

Kara Cafe and Dessert Bar – Sogurt has grown into a full-fledged cafe!

[Media Tasting]

Foodies will be familiar with the popular yoghurt brand Sogurt, one of the first few players in the froyo market. After 7 years in the market, Sogurt has decided to rebrand its very first store in Bukit Timah from just a Froyo shop into a full-fledged cafe serving hot food and healthy eats. Owner Lee Li Ping recognises that the F&B scene changes rapidly, and that “it’s important to keep up with the latest trends or be left behind”. Tell me about it, even the social media scene has changed as compared to the days when I first started blogging. Time really waits for no man.

The new menu does indeed comprise of a substantial number of healthy dishes such as hearty soups, grain bowls and salads. But there are also comfort food dishes and sweet treats, because let’s be frank, what’s the point of eating out if you can’t indulge just a little bit? The signature self-served froyo bar is still available, for loyal fans who might miss it if it were gone. It now includes soft ice-cream flavours as well.

Scroll down to see some of the dishes from the newly revamped menu.
