5 Ways To Indulge In A Decadent Romantic Valentine’s Day Feast
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and what better time to impress your better half? But if you’re still clueless about where to dine or craving an alternative to the usual dining experience, these five unique offers in the heart of the city should do the trick.
Stunning views, classy interiors and world-class dining—this restaurant ticks all the right boxes when you want to woo that special someone on Valentine’s Day.
Cheers to an awesome night ahead with a glass of Krug Grand Cuvee, then indulge your palate with executive chef Kirk Westaway’s eight-course Reinventing British degustation menu. No doubt, there are few better way to savour the romance than a starter of Majestic oysters dressed in a splash of pomelo and ponzu, followed by luscious Scottish scallops, served in a bath of rich smoked iberico broth with iberico pork loin and parsley root. Point is, there's nothing like an intimate meal of gastronomic proportions to help you make the right impression.
What's more, in an apt nod to the Chinese New Year festivities, Westaway will also include his version of the traditional pineapple tarts, strategically served after you've had the refreshing champagne blackcurrant granité.
Available on February 14 and 15; top up for optional wine pairing.
If what you prefer is a more casual but no less unforgettable night, this new addition boasts equally amazing views of the Singapore skyline. You’re definitely in good hands with executive chef Paul Hallett, who will ensure a sumptuous and filling five-course dinner.
He’ll first tease your palate with a glass of bubbly paired with delicate black oysters garnished with dashi, fuji apple and caviar. The risotto studded with scallop and uni is next, followed by a serving of Alaskan king cod glazed in sake and served with a side of sautéed pumpkin and sage. However you choose to pace yourself, don’t miss out on the signature John Stone short rib, beautified with kombu and shiitake mushrooms.
But your date is vegetarian, you say? Well, Hallett has also created a vegetarian option that includes the likes of kabocha squash topped with whipped feta cheese, black quinoa and pomegranate, and the artichoke risotto.
Available from February 13 to 15.
