You can expect to see performing arts, a diverse range of dance, music and theatre performances at Esplanade. Don’t miss the scenic outdoor view at Esplanade waterfront. Enjoy the morning breeze for a job in the morning. Relaxing on the seats with the beautiful view of the Singapore River in the afternoon. And probably high tea on a sunny afternoon. Hungry at the end of the day? Dine at any of the restaurants or cafes at Esplanade Mall at night.

Esplanade Food Hunt #1 : Alter Ego
A juicy chicken thigh burger, and all these yummy cheese oozes out of the center. Sandwiched between buttery brioche bun with housemade ranch burger. I wish that I have a bigger appetite for that night. .
Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich at S$20.
Creole-style soup flavoured with roasted prawn heads, spices with garlic paprika bread soldiers on the side. Italian sausage is added to both shredded chicken and seafood gumbo. All the ingredients coming together in a single pot and melding into something rich and delicious.
Seafood Gumbo at S$16.
Esplanade Food Hunt #2 : Noosh Halal Noodle Bar & Grill
Can’t decide which to eat first? Pipping hot plump cray fish simmered in rich and creamy spicy coconut based gravy with spices. Light rice vermicelli noodle has absorbed all the goodness from the gravy. It is a little spicy at first taste and gets better as it goes.
Curry Cray Fish Noodle at S$18.90.
The best selling dessert never disappoints. If you like ondeh ondeh, you certainly can’t miss this! The fluffy soft cake with coconut shaves melts in the mouth with gula melaka bursts. Munching more bites before heading to the next food hunt.
Ondeh Ondeh with Vanilla Ice-cream at S$10.90.
Esplanade Food Hunt #3 : Supply & Demand
Stoning at a corner and something caught my attention. The strong smell of truffle oil! It is drizzled generously on not so common chunky cut fries. That’s not all, it is topped with shaved parmesan, roasted garlic bits and parsley. Next, Singaporean favourite salted egg yolk sauce! Here we see crispy chicken drumlets tossed with salted yolk sauce. I found the taste to be a little too overwhelming. Finally, the Signature pizza in tomato sauce, mozzarella bacon and mushroom with an lovable soft egg set in the center. Just a normal pizza, nothing fanciful. Probably, I was too bloated and nothing goes into the mind as Supply & Demand was the last station. I might have a different perspective if this was set in the first few stations.
Garlic Truffle Fries at S$17.
Salted Egg Drumlets at S$15.
The Morning After
9 inch at S$21.
Large 13 inch at S$25.
The cutest duckling floating on the sea of the emo colour. Featuring the blue cocktail for the night. Fascinating potion of Gin, Pavan liqueur, elderflower syrup, blue curacao and lime juice.
Blue is the warmest colour at S$18.
Esplanade Food Hunt #4 : Suzette
Featuring mini edible Durian Esplanade dessert! The white chocolate Durian tart was specially crafted by Suzette for its location at Esplanade. Underneath the white chocolate dome is huge amount of durian paste is so rich and flavourful. Bittersweet taste, sticky, creamy texture D24 durian definitely please any durian lover!
The taste of the cheese cake evolves into a slightly sweet, aromatic flavours of passionfruit and basil. The taste is quite unique and very different from those cheesecake that you ever had.
White Chocolate Durian Tart at S$12.
Passionfruit and Basil Cheese Cake at S$8.
Warm and crispy waffles drizzled with chocolate sauce, maple syrup and dressed with fruits. If you are lucky, you must order earl grey ice cream flavour. This is real ice cream with a twist. It is smooth, aromatic and malty with a different sensation of ice cream. All ice creams are hand-crafted, check with the friendly crew for the selection.
Waffle with Single Scoop Ice-cream at S$12.
Esplanade Food Hunt #5 : Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles
I would recommend to order dry version as the noodles and soup are placed separatedly. If you are one to go with stronger flavour, you can’t miss the dry version with al dente mee kia (thin noodles) tossed in their special sauce. Must try! You don’t get to eat this mee kia anywhere else cause it is specially made for Wah Kee. This is like the best combination with Wah Kee Big Prawn Soup and Tasty Mee Kia. It tasted as good as my first visit.
Wah Kee Prawn Noodle with large sized prawn (Dry/Soup) at S$20.
If you’re a fan of Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle, you certainly can’t miss the new clam soup. With added fresh clams, the soup is sweeter with a taste of ocean. Psss the clams are so good and got wiped clean by another foodie.
Clam soup at S$12.
