With its over five million inhabitants, making it the city with the second highest density of population in the world after the Principality of Monaco, Singapore is a decidedly crowded, multiracial and multicultural metropolis. Characteristics that make it an ideal location for culinary experimentation, with its typical hawker centers and cafés and bars open around the clock that offer food from every part of Asia. Singapore also boasts major commercial centers, like Plaza Singapura, the Paragon and the Wisma Tria, located on Orchard Road, filled with shops and restaurants of every kind. At Liat Towers, in the same area, the OverEasy Orchard diner has opened, proposing classic and very well-prepared American cooking in a highly characteristic setting:: a nostalgic revisiting of the classic fast-food joint, with decor by the Hui Designs studio, that is able to steep its patrons in a magnificent 1980s atmosphere. A vintage USA experience is ensured by the sinuous counter clad in metal and Formica and by many other iconic elements: low ceilings with spotlights, swiveling stools, long curved wooden benches with padded backs, walls with colored silhouettes, linoleum on the floor, pillars with graphic motifs. The 325 square meters of the diner are dominated by pastel colors that hark back to the 1950s. Finally, those who want to complete their journey back in time can use their smartphones to open Secret DJ, an app that allows them to select pieces of music ranging from old favorites like Elvis Presley’s “Blue Suede Shoes” to the 1990s rock of the Foo Fighters or Lenny Kravitz.
