It all began when I spotted a sign while wandering around the city alone on a Sunday morning.
The sign led me up a gentle slope. After a short walk, before me stood the most amazing sight. It may sound like I am exaggerating but to me, it was like walking into my dream home. If I were to build my own home and restaurant, it would be exactly like Urban Garden.
It has a flower shop cum nursery.
There was a row of herbs growing on the window ledge. When I saw the chef stepping out to pick some herbs for the kitchen, my knees almost went weak.
I stood outside the glass door and peered inside, unsure whether the restaurant had already started business for the day. I wasn't even hungry but I was so in love with the place, I just wanted to linger a little longer. Maybe I'll just have a cup of coffee.
I picked a seat by the water feature and admired the wooden decking, furnishing and walls.
Even though I had no plans to eat, I couldn't resist ordering this salad with a generous serving of snow crab, huge scallops and lots of fresh greens. This ultra delicious salad only cost S$14!
Stumbling upon Urban Garden is definitely the highlight of the trip. Now I am inspired to work towards my dream!
