At the Punjab Grill - Marina Bay Sands

Singapore: Saturday evening I went to the Marina Bay Sands which has become one of those “must-visit” destinations of Singapore for tourists in the last four or five years. The Marina Bay Sands is divided into two parts, the hotel area and the shopping convention area. These two are connected by a foot bridge. I think the most noticeable and interesting thing about Singapore is its cleanliness.
This country is an example for countries like India where cleanliness seems to be an impossible civic task, given the over population and filth in public places. On the other hand, Singapore is even cleaner than any part of Europe or Canada. In fact, I find this country the cleanest place that I have ever visited in all my years of travel to faraway lands.
People of Kolkata by now have heard of or know about the proposed `Atmosphere' project of Rahul Saraf in Eastern Metropolitan Bypass with sky garden and villas. This project is inspired by the Marian Bay Hotel's 340 m long SkyPark on the top floor with a capacity of 3,900 people and a 150minfinity swimming pool set on top of the world's largest public cantilevered platform, which overhangs the north tower by 67m.
I, however, went there neither to see the hotel nor shop but to dine at the Punjab Grill - the Indian restaurant of celebrity Chef, Jiggs Kalra, who is commonly referred to as the Czar of Indian Cuisine and the first Asian to be inducted in the International Gourmet Hall of Fame.
The food and service was far better than my expectations and the menu too had lot of variety. Somehow, the Indian overseas food joints are getting better and better by the day.
Many celebrity chefs around the world have given the North Indian cuisine a different hype with modern fusion food all kinds of presentation. For any Indian foodie, whether you go to the Marina Bay Hotel or Shopping Centre or not, I recommend you must visit this Punjab Grill Jiggs Kalra Restaurant if you can afford to.
