Not exactly light (up to you), but the buffet-style Straits Kitchen at Hyatt serves local "hawker centre" fare where they have various "stalls" cooking different food on the spot. Your guests can sample almost every local cuisine there.

At least it won't be hot and stuffy.

Lau Pa Sat at Raffles Place area. It's a food court but there're nice seats around, including some outdoors. There's also a good variety of food stalls. The only downside is, it's incredibly crowed during lunch time and it's best to get there before noon.

Kopi Tiam at Raffles City. Hawker centre food but in a relaxed hotel restaurant. Dishes about $15. Free flow of "home-brew" barley or soya bean drink at $4.50 (I think) per person.

Each of you can always try a different dish and taste each other's if you're not concerned of etiquette.
