Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP) might not be top-of-mind when considering dining options in Singapore but that’s about to change. Part of The Oval @ SAP, The Summerhouse joins three other food and beverage tenants – Youngs Bar and Restaurant, Di Wei Teo Chew Restaurant and Wheeler's Estate – to breathe new life into the (previously) deserted former Seletar Airbase.
The 45,000-sqft grounds is home to Poppy Flora Studio; Nomad the Gallant, an on-site coffee roasting facility; Wildseed, a casual café and bar; and the Summerhouse Dining Room, the main restaurant perched on the second floor of the conserved colonial bungalow. It’s one of those places where you’ll find no problem lounging at for the entire day – book in one hand, coffee (or cocktail) in the other. It dishes out ‘farms’-to-table creations, serving food carefully and personally sourced from Singaporean and Malaysian producers, garnished with herbs freshly plucked from the garden within the premises.
If you're looking to splash out then book one of three air-conditioned domes strategically placed in the garden. They fit up to six guests – there's a minimum spend of $300 – and are themed in different styles. We can't think of a more romantic place to pop the question.
