Located near the Tanglin Gate of the Botanical Gardens, Food for Thought is nestled in lush gardens of the Singapore Botanical Gardens. The café is a recent expansion of the well-established Food for Thought.
Unlike its 8Q counterpart, SBG Food for Thought was catered for the families (they have a playground just outside and kids were running amok) and ordering was not taken by waiters but made at the counter instead. The whole atmosphere reminded me of an IKEA canteen, except that Food for Thought has a more elegant interior complete with little touches of greenery.
Portions were decent but the taste that makes me want to dine at Food for Thought again and again was just missing at their Singapore Botanical Gardens branch. The sight of many leftovers from other dinners is not an encouraging sight too. In the end, we decided to skip the desserts and settle the bill.
