Located next to Singapore's Silicon Valley, Rochester Park is a lovely little hideaway from the city's noise & pollution. The water running & burds' sound make it your secret garden to chill out at night. There are 11 colonial white houses inside the garden, used to be British Official's home. One Rochester is one of them. Their drink menu offer more than 500 choices, many special martini, and many delicious tapas (snacks). There was a 3-man live band playing Jazz Rock when I visited, they sounds like Jamiroquai of Funk Odyssey, awesomeI

Favorite Dish: 1. Rock Melon Martini. SGD14. I simply LOVE it.

2. I never thought of having Chinese Roasted Pork to go with my Martini cocktail, but it was a greta match. The pork's skin was roasted until crispy, meat not too dry but fatty-feeling oil were roasted awat. Love it! SGD15.

3. Deep Fried Mushroom. SGD10. It was good too, fresh & crispy.

4. Another fusion, Fried Fish Skin (Chinese Style) and suprisingly it goes with my Melon Martini too :) SGD10.
