Food For Thought

The food at Food For Thought @ National Museum of Singapore represents modern Singapore: bold Southeast Asian flavour profiles layered with globalised influence. Expect playful new takes on familiar flavours like our Croque Mah Ling, Not-So-Little Gems profiteroles and chwee kueh inspired Brown Buttered Chye Poh Prawn Salad.

Food For Thought at the Gardens is inspired by the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ mission to connect people with the pleasures of nature. Situated within the oldest and most historically significant garden of our busy city, the restaurant is designed around love for family, care for the environment, enjoyment of rest and other aspects of truly sustainable living. Surrounded by lush greenery, the 300-seater eco-conscious restaurant features upcycled milk-tin lamps and full-height glass walls that let in plenty of natural light. Large tables, generous aisles, a safely enclosed playground and a wheelchair ramp allow visitors from all walks of life to be served here.

Meanwhile, Fast Food For Thought (fFFT) is a radical reboot of the previous Food For Thought outlet at 8Q. fFFT is a burger shack that doubles up as a pop-up community art museum, but some brunch items, salads and pastas were recently added back to the menu at FFT@8Q. Inspired by the museum’s interactive and community-oriented approach to contemporary art, fFFT works with volunteers to create art that engages the public in discussions about social issues.


The hit to your wallet: From $5 for French toast to $15 for a plate of pasta
