To present the best local signature dishes from Singapore, The Lobby Lounge collaborated with various renowned local F&B establishments such as The Coconut Club and Springleaf Prata Place to bring you the very best Nasi Lemak, Roti Prata and other iconic dishes.

The biggest selling point for this Local Breakfast Buffet is really letting guests have access to all the best local classic Singapore dishes in one venue, curated from some of the best F&B establishments around. When you want to introduce your foreign friends to all the best Singapore dishes without having to drive all around Singapore to eat them one by one, this is a great alternative.

For locals like myself, it is still a great setting to fix a craving for a wide assortment of local dishes in a cosier setting. Yes, you pay more than eating at a hawker centre of course, but that’s for quality and comfort when you want to pamper yourself a little. Besides, check out the awesome pool view from the Lobby Lounge:
