What happens when kids get peckish after playing at COMO Adventure Grove? Climb the stairs and head up the hill beside the nature playgarden at the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ Gallop Extension to grab a bite at Bee’s Knees Petite.
The eatery is located behind the Botanical Art Gallery in its own standalone building. The floor-to-ceiling glass panels at the front of the building let in a flood of light. They also act as a nice frame to the views of the lush greenery on the outside.
Inside, the green walls and light wood furniture provide a welcoming ambiance which is in balance with the surrounding nature. It is, as the name implies, petite, with enough space for just over 20 diners.

We had the Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (19). It was served piping hot in a disposable bowl. The pasta was cooked al dente and had a bit of a bite to it. There was a generous amount of smoked duck in the pasta dish. It had a nice garlic flavour and a bit of heat, thanks to bits of chilli padi.
We enjoyed it so much that we cleaned out the dish.
