As the only halal french eatery that marries food with flowers here, this brasserie serves not only French pastries but a substantial spread of French-inspired favourites, like Chicken Cordon Bleu and the classic French Onion Soup. Nestled in the heart of Kampong Gelam, this brasserie not only serves a mixed blend of coffee but also floral teas that bloom before your eyes.
“The parchment-baked concept seals the original flavours of the dish. Once the customers unwrap it themselves, the fresh herbs hit the nasal sensors and that sudden whiff whets the customers appetite and sets the stage for a delightful dining experience.”
The florist brasserie’s name, ‘The Secret Garden’ was inspired by a triptych acrylic painting by the resident florist himself, Sukri Kadola. The painting suggests a hidden paradise that features a gazebo amidst the co-existence of both asiatic blooms as well as flowers from temperate climates that exist in a single garden. In the third and final piece, the painting captures the bridled romance between the two lovers at a time when they were supposed to practise safer distance. The painting is featured at the restaurant’s dining floor on Level 2.
