A February 1989 trip to Singapore by panda2

Denny's Singapore


Denny's is an international chain restaurant we went to for an American-style breakfast. Just about everything seemed like you may have walked into one in the US. But it wasn't exactly all the same. The menu and furniture all looked the same. When our breakfast came, a watermelon slice was on the plate in place of the hash browns. We weren't informed about the substitution; it was just brought to our table. My partner complained about this, and we should have been informed they didn't have hash browns. Other than that, the breakfast was typical Denny's quality.
