Signature bites and fresh produce

International buffet restaurant RISE is also celebrating local cuisine in a big way with the new Singapore Street Food experience. Oh, and you get to be among the first to enjoy exciting new spots such as restaurant/ lounge/ bar/ nightclub LAVO and French tearoom/ patisserie Angelina Café (favourite of Marcel Proust and Coco Chanel).
