Tired of eating in the same five star swanky places? Why not try The Glass House? Singapore has been eagerly awaiting the opening of The Glass House at the Fort Canning Hotel. This incredible concept restaurant is offering Southeast Asian Cuisine and housed beside the famous mineral water pool. The Modern Asian Bistro has arrived and by all accounts it was worth the wait.

They say that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones and we would suggest that people who dine in The Glass House shouldn’t throw fits over the food either. The Glass House is indeed set in a glass house with four walls made of glass that offer stunning views of Fort Canning Park and the familiar skyline of Singapore.

Breakfast at the Glass House

With a plush and luxurious interior, diners may find it hard to choose what to look at because it isn’t just the views on the outside that are available. The walls of the kitchen are also glass so that you can watch as the talented chefs prepare your food. With an all day dining menu and a focus on local ingredients and Asian cuisine, The Glass House still manages to put a contemporary spin on their menu.
