Restaurant Ember, located at boutique hotel 1929 serves modern European cruise. The first time we arrived for lunch at 1pm; almost half of the selection of mains was sold out. NOOooooo 🙁 The second time I arrived there at 12.15pm, M and I managed to grab the last steak and cod, phew! So if you want the good stuff at Ember, you have to be really early.
The restaurant does not have many seats so reservations are recommended. The service is OK only, with the exception of one very friendly and loud Mandarin speaking Aunty who is quite animated.
M loves the food here, so we would be back again. M is based overseas and she even misses Ember’s food when she is not in Singapore. Ember serves a very value for money 3 course set lunch at $39.50++. Check out my recent review here 🙂
