Themed restaurants are enjoying a resurgence in Singapore, and Picnic is looking to get a piece of the action. An assortment of ferns and succulents hang from the walls of the garden-themed restaurant, and there’s even an astroturf-covered garden space in the middle of the restaurant that will make you feel like you’re really having a picnic in the park. The varieties of plants are refreshed according to the seasons, with the lighting changing in accordance with the day – which means you can catch a glimpse of the ‘sunset’ while indoors. It’s free-seating and there are multiple tables for groups, but we recommend zooming in on the one near the bar with a built-in ice bucket to hold drinks. So head down early to picnic at the best spot.
Food-wise, order from any of the 13 stations that are set up as independent food trucks. Ezo is a Japanese concept that serves Hokkaido-inspired eats like butadon ($14 lunch/$19 dinner), a rice bowl with three different cuts of pork (belly, collar and loin) all marinated in a sweet and savoury tare sauce and grilled to order. If you’re looking to share, go for the rotisserie half chicken ($23 lunch/$26 dinner), that’s served with your choice of mash potatoes or ratatouille.
