The indomitable and intrepid Travelling Gourmet TM goes to the new Courtyard by…
MARRIOTT…all the way up to the 22nd floor…to taste delectable dishes like Curry Capitan with Roti Prata & Poppadoms with Achar (Nyonya Pickles), mildly spicy Chilli Crab Pizza, tangy and zesty Penang Style Assam (tamarind) Laksa, tender & moist Pork Satay with Red Onions, Fresh Cucumber, Ketupat (rice cake) with yummie Peanut Sauce, Nasi Goreng (literally translated from the Malay language as ‘fried rice’) with Egg Sunny Side Up and more! Good food, good service and good ambience makes bright and spacious SKY22 one of my favourite restaurants. Portions are very generous for those with big appetites. There is also an excellent Semi-Buffet “eat as much as you like” Dinner with your choice of main course. I like to dine early so as to see the sun setting over the Novena area. Easy access because the Novena MRT station is just a hop, skip and jump away.
A lovely dessert is Cendol Deconstucted with Nuggets of fragrant Gula Melaka and Ice Cream that is not ot sweet but very yummie! The seductive Gula Melaka flavours pleasure your taste buds endlessly as you bite into the nuggets. The Dessert Buffet is also noteworthy. Splendid SKY 22 is helmed by modest and talented Executive Chef John Chye who is one of the nicest Chefs I know. In Urbana there is 1 for 1 Cocktails from 5pm to 8pm daily.
