Singapore Airlines A380 Suites , Sydney to Singapore

 

Singapore Airlines first class on the A380 is called “suites ” this flight was SQ232  from Sydney to Singapore. I have always wanted to fly Singapore Air’s A380 suites but have have never got the chance until now.

The Silver Kris lounge was recently renovated it still has that new feel to it , walking in there is a lounge area with seats / couches,  in the middle is the dining area with the buffet plus  some tables on the other side is some workstations & then seats by the windows overlooking the airport.

Needless to say I really enjoyed this flight it was great start to my holiday next I spent a few days in Singapore before flying onto Tokyo.

Cafe Sopra – Bridge Street

 

Cafe Sopra Bridge Street is not the easiest place to find, you can walk right by and have no idea you have just passed a busy restaurant.  The entrance is a small gate that leads to a set of stairs going down below street level. They only take bookings for Saturday and weekday lunches; they can get very busy so come early or late otherwise you will have to queue.

Just like there other 3 locations Cafe Sopra Bridge Street serves up very tasty traditional Italian food at a reasonable price making it a favourite  place of mine for for a city pasta fix.  The menu is on a big blackboard and it changes frequently. After you eat check out the stores selection of Italian groceries and take something home with you to eat.

 

Spaghetti carbonara $20 – If you like pasta that is not drenched in sauce you will like the pastas here. The carbonara has just the right amount of sauce with plenty of flavour.

Gnocchi $22 – with pumpkin , garlic and parmesan

Garlic Bread $5 – Great garlic bread, nice and crusty.

When you eat at the bar you can look right into the kitchen

It’s an unassuming entrance, don’t miss it.
