The Halia at Singapore Botanic Gardens

563 Wishlisted
Halia – Malay for ginger – is located in the one-hectare Ginger Garden of the Singapore Botanic Gardens where over 250 species of gingers with their stunning foliage and colourful flowers thrive. The construction of Halia was carried out simultaneously with the development of the Ginger Garden in year 2000. Careful consideration was given to the special park setting, such that architecture conformed to the contours of the land, the dignity of mature trees and the preservation of heritage. In 2001, the Halia was officially opened. The result is an unobtrusive dining room with full height glass windows, beckoning the greenery indoors, and allowing guests to dine in the Garden whilst still comfortably ensconced in cool surroundings. Decades-old majestic palm trees stand like sentries, guardian-witness to the earthy beauty that is the Singapore Botanic Gardens. *Halal-certified

Set in verdant Botanic Gardens, Halia's perfect for relaxing dates amidst lush greenery. Their Charred Fremantle Octopus ($26) is sublime — juicy and doused in delicious Wagyu Chorizo oil and ginger flower hot sauce, or go for their stalwart Singapore-Style Chilli Crab Spaghettini ($26). Be warned though, it packs quite a punch with its sweet, tangy and spicy combo.

🍝: Chilli crab spaghettini

Had this a while back with my girls 🥰 dining here was a great experience with alfresco seating at Botanic Gardens.

The chilli crab spaghettini is a sweet & tangy tomato-based pasta that’s generously loaded with crab meat. I think it’s worth a try, the dish exceeded my expectations 😊

We ordered a couple of appetisers as well including the truffle fries and lemongrass & ginger prawn salad. The truffle fries was served in a HUGE basket and we devoured it so quickly, definitely order this! The salad was delicious as well for how refreshing it was.

Tomato Soup was concentrated but it lacked a zest
Oil was added to the soup which was unnecessary because it didn’t add flavour nor change the texture
The baguette was hard and not toasted to a warm temperature

Price inclusive of GST and Service Charge: $7.06

Truffle fries were crispy and thin!
Truffle taste could be enhanced

Price inclusive of GST and Service Charge: $21.19

Spaghetti was cooked in spicy, tangy chilli crab sauce
Chilli crab sauce would be better if it were more spicy and the dish would be more satisfying with more crab meat

Service was good

Pretty presentation and refreshing taste. Garden tea with lychee juice, raspberries and thyme infusion ($8). Also really liked their take on local favorite kaya and toast. The honey butter was so good! They also had pineapple ginger jam which was good as well. Will be back!
