W Singapore Valentine’s Day Promotion at SKIRT

Skirt W Singapore

Anytime is a good time for steaks, but SKIRT at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove is one chi-chi steakhouse that we prefer to reserve for dates with the discerning loved ones. And this is why this Valentine’s Day, there is nowhere better than romancing your date with an unforgettably lavish dinner at SKIRT. After all, you need a reliable outlet where the service is impeccable and professional, and SKIRT is ideal with its mix of elegance and chic factor.

This Valentine’s Day, SKIRT presents a 5-course dinner menu (S$350++ for 2) with a bottle of Auris Spumante Brut. Wake your palate up with a trio appetiser, the Titanic – starring the Tuna Tartar with avocado puree that is a brilliant blend of the fish’s freshness and the rich taste of the creamy fruit; luxurious chicken pate accompanied by fragrant homemade roasted chicken crackers; and cured halibut with grapefruit that is a refreshing juxtapose to the first two strong flavours. Quite a myriad of flavours and textures to begin the evening, indeed.

Skirt Steak Sandwich

Succeeding the trio is the Casablance that further pays homage to the ocean’s freshness – generous chunks of crab meat with tomato jelly and an apple sphere beautifully set in a martini glass. Moulin Rouge Champagne & Roses will take your breath away – seared scallop covered with champagne foam and rose petals. Nothing quite like celebrating the love in the air with a gorgeous dish like that. Every bite is pleasure to remember.

When Harry met Sally is when we indulge in a main course of Steak Sandwich – Black onyx sirloin with Marrow crumbs, tomato and onion puree. The meat is served medium, and the marrow and bread crumbs complemented the creaminess of the beef so well.

Last but certainly not least, show your date how intricately delicate and poignantly rich your love is via the dessert of 5 textures of chocolate. We really loved the chocolate ice-cream!

OCF & Table Manners Valentine’s Day Promotion

OCF Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and we have sussed out two recent favourites for you to bring your date to.

At the second level of The Arts House, overlooking the Singapore River is modern French Restaurant Olivia Cassivelaun Fancourt (OCF). We like OCF because it is intimate, chic and sophisticated, and serves a superb and well-thought through meal using the freshest produce. On 14 & 15 Feb, OCF is offering a 4-course dinner (S$168++/person) with a glass of Pierre Paillard Grand Cru NV champagne. There will also be live music brought to you by talented artistes from Timbre Group playing your favourite love ballads throughout the dinner.

Start with a Maine lobster salad because you can never go wrong with the sweet crustacean. French Seabass with artichokes, oscietra caviar and vin jaune, wine made in the Jura region in France, succeeds the appetizer. The main course, Beef Tenderloin drizzled with bordelaise sauce and topped with foie gras, is the dream for all meat-lovers. Your sweet ending is the Valrhona Chocolate Royale with coffee crémeux and caramel ice cream.

With twenty branches around the island, O’Coffee Club is one of the most recognised cafe chains in Singapore. For Valentine’s Day this year, O’Coffee Club has specially created a 5-course Epicurean dinner at their first outlet in Holland Village. There will be live band playing while you enjoy a scrumptious dinner.

As this is a one-time special with an exclusive menu only available at Holland Village’s outlet for this Valentine’s Day, seats are limited. I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with my partner there, and if you are thinking of where to go for a romantic dinner, why not join us on that special night?

O'Coffee Club Promotion

Besides the 5-course Epicurean Dinner on Valentine’s Day, O’Coffee Club has also lined up many treats for us in the month of February.

Macarons lovers will be thrilled to know that the new creations include ‘Muddy Mud Pie Macaroon’, which is inspired by their famous ‘Muddy Mud Pie’ dessert and ‘CNY Pineapple Macaroon’. If you are looking for a Chinese New Year gift, O’Coffee Club’s ‘Haute Collection Pineapple Tarts’ ($6.80++ per box of 8) is the perfect thing to buy besides the usual mandarin oranges when you go visiting in the CNY. Also, their February’s high tea set ($8.50/pax) is one of the most affordable afternoon tea sets in town.

That is the start of my tantalizing adventure with O’Coffee Club. Remember to sign up for the event, and we shall have a ball of a time celebrating Valentine’s Day at O’Coffee Club together.
