St Games (Singapore’s First Video Games Café)

St Games
St Games is Singapore’s first video games café located at the Cathay (directly located opposite the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station). It is a gaming café that offers you the experience of console gaming for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 (Kinect) and Nintendo Wii; a perfect solution for those who want to try or cannot afford the space and game consoles.
I had the opportunity to visit St Games when my friend planned a day out for us. The decor of the cafe was okay, the lighting was a little dim, and pretty crowded as it was a weekend.

Soup Restaurant (Century Square)

If you are looking for some comforting Chinese food, the Soup Restaurant is one place you should visit. I usually go to the outlet at Century Square and Suntec, but I think the other branches should be just as good. This restaurant is known for its double-boiled soup and homely Chinese fare.
Not to mention that if you are there, you cannot miss the signature Samsui Ginger Chicken! The Samsui Ginger Chicken is one of the highlights and eaten with lettuce leaves and the restaurant own made ginger sauce, which is simply delicious and doesn’t have that strong ginger aftertaste. The restaurant even sells bottles the ginger sauce for you to take home!
