It is always good to explore new chill out places within the heart of the city especially when you have appointments with awkward six hour gaps in between them. Of course there is always the National Library Building, but sometimes it can get quite filled and sitting on the floor may not be an option when the librarians constantly try to shoo you away.
Spacious, nicely decorated and with friendly staff, this is a lovely place to spend time at whether you are with a group of friends or on your own. They serve brunch as well as dinner, together with an entire list of sides for you to choose from.
Most cafes in Singapore serve the same few sides, ranging from truffle fries to buffalo wings to potato wedges, so food items are not outstanding in this list. But I must say that the serving is relatively generous so it will definitely fill you up!
What I really like about The Assembly Ground will be the selection of drinks and how some iced drinks come with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Some examples will be their Iced Mocha and Iced Matcha. The ice cream adds texture to the drink and I think it is really unique! My personal favourite at the moment will be the Iced Matcha because the flavour is really wholesome and the vanilla ice cream complements it well.
Drop by to give it a go, and if you do not really fancy crowds, try visiting it during a weekday!
