Head to Lime House in Chinatown for a taste of the Caribbean in Singapore

It’s scary to think how long it would take to fly from Singapore to the sun-soaked beaches of Trinidad & Tobago, but if you fancy a mini Caribbean escape without clocking up the air miles then treat yourself to an afternoon of ‘liming’ at Lime House near Chinatown.

Lime House invites the men along too! 

‘Liming’ means to chill – the term apparently originates from guys in Tobago sat watching the world go by under a lime tree – and that laid-back vibe translates itself perfectly to Limehouse, the brainchild of Tobagan entrepreneur Chris Morris, who ‘moved to Singapore for a couple of months five years ago…’.

Caribbean culture is everywhere, from the artwork, to the outside rum bar, to the plantain strewn on the chef’s table, to Chris’s shorts, t-shirt and flip-flops ensemble.

The Sunday brunch is well worth checking out. For the princely sum of  $35, you can enjoy a selection of dishes including jerk chicken, beef stew, fried and poached parrot fish, from midday until 5.30pm. That’s a seriously long graze.

You can even break your day up with a snooze in one of the upstairs chill-out areas (as if it could get more chilled), or just while the day away with a few seriously strong rum punches, before popping back for a fifth or sixth helping of jerk chicken.
