One thing that Singaporean's love more than anything else is food and the Orchard Parade Hotel has more than its fair share of unique restaurants serving up a special range of delicacies.

If you're after something more local why not try "Grandmas" which offers a range of popular Singaporean meals and desserts that you will surely enjoy.
