The stunning tropical interiors of the recently refurbished Ginger restaurant are probably enough to entice you – think pastel pink and green hues, huge tropical foliage arrangements, and ‘satay’ ceiling fans – but the food is what will really keep you coming back for more! The Halal-friendly* all-day dining restaurant introduces Malay and Indonesian delights to its extensive buffet line-up this Ramadan, and we got to try it for ourselves. The ‘Local Delights at Ginger’ buffet menu includes Grilled Ayam Percik, Lobster Nasi Lemak, Braised Lamb Shanks Tulang served with Garlic Bread, putu piring by Haig Road Putu Piring (the beloved Michelin Recommended local hawker!) and Milo Dinosaur Ice Cream (a rich milo-flavoured confection that will totally take you back to your Singaporean childhood). We love that each table is equipped with a QR code for the digital menu showcasing over 70 dishes (including free-flow chilli crab!), with the ability to add items to the order so the kitchen is immediately notified before being served to your table. You can even select your preferred portion size. Ginger also has a prayer room prepared just outside the restaurant so Muslim diners can perform their evening prayers after breaking their fast.
