Gingerline Presents The Institute Of Flavourology Only the Brave will Dine

The Singapore Tourism Board's Secret Island

A Secret Island
April 2015

All aboard the ferryman’s ride!

Our intrepid explorers ventured through 5 different dining dimensions, each revealing the island of Singapore's best kept secrets. The dark, terror filled jungle with its delicious canapé canopy, the bustling market with our Hawker’s crabby sidekick, the tranquil rest stop with tea-infused cocktail, the home cooked delights of our Peranakan house and a dancing digital glimpse of the future of The Secret Island.

One heck of an experiment!
