We started day 02 of our staycation with a sumptuous breakfast affair at level 6 of the hotel. Gone were the days where a full buffet spread greeted us in the morning. Instead, we were presented with a rather extensive menu where we could order any items that we fancy. The wait-staffs were welcoming and eager to serve which helped to elevate our dining experience at the Garden Pavilion.
From our hotel, we decided to explore the surrounding Pek Kio neighbourhood for more food options. Along 130 Owen Road, we chanced upon Bakehaus, an artisan bakery that served really authentic croissants. Having opened their doors for slightly over a year, Bakehaus had gained its own loyal following judging by the number of likes on their FB page and rave Google reviews.
What sets the Pek Kio neighbourhood apart were the unique glass lift shafts on some of their retrofitted HDB blocks. This is a nice little 1970s neighbourhood complete with an iconic hawker centre where long queues for the delicious chee cheong fun, wanton mee and prawn noodles could be seen on a late Monday morning. Before heading back to our room, we stopped
by at the Don Donki outlet at City Square Mall for some takeaway sashimi lunch options.
We were torn between Swee Choon Dim Sum or Pu Tien for our dinner options. In the end, the latter prevail where great food and service greeted us at their flagship outlet along Kitchener Road.
Overall, this was a great staycation experience at One Farrer Hotel with endless food options and a huge swimming pool that would certainly make me come back for more.
