Basil Leaf Cafe At The Sail: Downtown Bistro
During my rare visit of the CBD area, I happened to chance upon Basil Leaf Cafe with is at The Sail. Frankly, the ‘underground’ world in Marina Bay area is like a maze to me! Like a blind mice, I simply followed my friend’s lead in search for a place to settle down for lunch. We started from Raffles Place Mrt and somehow ended up here!
Despite the lower traffic (relative) to other parts of Raffles Place and Tanjong Pagar, business at Basil Leaf Cafe doesn’t show signs of slowing down. The café was packed with patrons, had a queue at the counter, nonetheless we managed to settle down rather quickly.
Menu is rather extensive. They have Burgers, Pasta, Salads, Sandwiches and Mains such as beef and salmon steaks. A top up of $3.5 entitles you a set meal (soup + Iced Lemon Tea). How about a small array of dessert to complete your meal, but just be wary of the ever ready Z monster when you head back to your desk.
Orders came in a jiffy despite the busyness. I ordered the Roasted Ribeye ($11.90) while Kaleb got himself the Crabmeat Bisque ($15.90).
Golden brown toasted bread packed with tiny sliced roasted ribeye and accompanied with potato chips. A decent piece of sandwich that’s fit for all meals throughout the day.
Looking for a spacious, relaxing and comfortable venue for lunch? Basil Leaf Cafe is certainly an option.
