Two days in New Zealand’s Marlborough

Our lunch stops were much more memorable than our dinners but to be fair, Wairau River Wines and Saint Clair Family Estate Vineyard Kitchen had set the standards really high.


Under the bright lights at The Botanic

Amidst the concrete jungle of City Hall is a conspicuous newcomer to the area’s dining scene. The Botanic stands out against Raffles City’s façade almost like it’s too biophilic for the shopping mall’s dull grey exterior, as if it would be better suited for a spot in the likes of Dempsey Hill or the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
