For a change of pace from your usual breakfast company, head to the Singapore Zoo and add a curious crew of friendly orangutans to the mix. As you fill up on tropical fruits and hearty morning fare at the lodge-style Ah Meng Restaurant, the monkeys amble over from their habitat to say hello.
Rise and shine and head on over to the Singapore Zoo's Ah Meng Restaurant, a cozy and casual lodge-style eatery that's perfectly set within the jungle-like setting of the zoo. Check out the photographs of the restaurant's namesake, Ah Meng, on your way in—this beloved orangutan called the zoo home for nearly 40 years, and even met famous visitors like Prince Philip and Michael Jackson.
Fill up your plate at the buffet, which features western dishes along with local specialties and plenty of fresh fruit. Sit down and enjoy the fresh air and greenery, and then watch as the tree-trunk drawbridge connecting the orangutan's free-range habitat to the restaurant area is lowered and these people-loving primates wander in to make an appearance.
