The Summerhouse

The Summerhouse The Summerhouse 2

You’re in luck. A new garden themed restaurant and cafe just sprung up in Singapore, at Seletar Aerospace Park. With summer vibes that make you feel like you are overseas, this Valentine’s Day presents you a perfect opportunity to surprise your date with a fantastic spread. Any day at The Summerhouse could put you in a weekend mood. 

Run by Chef Florian Ridder, former sous chef of the one-Michelin-starred Alma in Goodwood Park Hotel, ingredients are made from scratch, as much as possible. As featured in The Straits Times, The Summerhouse focuses on a farm-to-table concept, where the cuisine is largely “nature-inspired” and focuses on local and seasonal produce. It’s aim is to raise awareness about local sustainability. 

The white colonial bungalow, apart from housing The Summerhouse dining room upstairs, also houses a airy and spacious Wildseed Cafe (by day) and Bar (by night) below, which makes great for coffee or drinks, whichever you prefer. Now with The Summerhouse, it has never been easier to wow your date (and tastebuds).
