Coastal Settlement

Coastal Settlement is located at a remote place in Changi area. A bit far but easy to locate and the carpark is just nearby. Brought Choco there as it's dog-friendly but it's not very convenient for us to unleash him. The environment is quiet, good to have brunch and a nice chat with friends.

Ikoi Japanese Restaurant いこい日本料理

One of the best Japanese Restaurants that I have been to! Thanks to Christina for making reservation and bringing us there! The Japanese restaurant adopts a buffet style concept which operates during lunch and dinner hours. Make reservation, otherwise may have to wait quite a while.

The interior is much similar to those of Japanese style which consists of a Japanese Sushi bar and tatami. For the buffet, you can choose from the list and inform the staff of the quantity. The total bill comes up to about $50 per person but by looking at what you could order, it's worth the spend.
