Indochine Gardens by the Bay

We finally made it here on a day when rain or full bookings have been deterring our visit here. Parking was a breeze at the main car park but finding our way there was quite tricky .. Was trying to make our way here before sunset so that we can catch the day night transition.

Little did we know that there were 2 levels to the place ! We were hanging out at the restaurant and alfresco dining area - this level was higher than the ocbc walkway, and the views were framed by the branches of the super trees. But it was lovely peering through the branches ( and the see through grilled floor of the alfresco dining area !) to the picnicking families on the grasslands at the base of the trees and of cos the lovely scenery.

The dining menu was a fusion Asian genre of cuisine- we had the Vietnamese rice rolls with salmon, red fish carpaccio and beef carpaccio and the greens platter. We were submerged in the lights during the super trees light show but somehow we couldn't really hear the music ( thought sound travels up) but the blinking lights and changing colors were quite nice. Finally we overheard some diners talking about the roof top bar area so we shifted up too - a stair climb up

Here the views were unobstrtucted and the views was awesome. Looking at the bay being perched on the super tree having the 360 look around and the MBS light show from here was quite different. Didn't do drinks but had the coffee creme brûlée, my second brûlée today lol, after cafe g. Love this place will be back.
