Blue Lotus CNY

Blue Lotus – Chinese Eating House

Blue Lotus – Chinese Eating House is the only Chinese restaurant at Quayside Isle, and it offers simple but very well-executed Chinese food. Think classic dishes that are familiar and comforting, yet refined and exquisite with the use of premium ingredients.

Blue Lotus Yusheng

For Chinese New Year 2014, Blue Lotus has several CNY set menus available from 13 Jan to 14 Feb 2014, ranging from Happiness (S$88/pax, minimum 4 guests) to Prosperity (S$288++/pax, minimum 10 guests). Among the dishes that we have sampled, the most outstanding ones are the Foie Gras and Wagyu Beef Sang Choy Bow that left us lingering for more, and the signature Pomelo Crab Claw – Blue Lotus’s take on the iconic chilli crab, less the mess.

Blue Lotus opens daily for lunch and dinner during the Chinese New Year period from 30 Jan to 14 Feb 2014 except 31 Jan and 1 Feb 2014.

Brussels Sprouts – Belgian Beer & Mussels

Yusheng is a must-have dish during Chinese New Year, but most places serve it with the usual ingredients and dressing. Why not try something special this year? Brussels Sprouts has the Poisson Cru Platter – its rendition of a “Belgian” Yusheng. Consisting of turnip, beetroot, Sirop de Liege, peanuts, raspberry vinegar, rollmops and mussels crackers, this Yusheng will definitely stand out among the rest you will be having this year.

Make Brussels Sprouts your choice this Valentine’s Day – the men get to enjoy Belgian beer and mussels, while the ladies can indulge in the tantalising main course options.

A sexy restaurant that sits on the second level, boasting a panoramic view of Quayside Isle, Museo is among our favourites, and we will tell you just why. Apart from their stylish take on the furniture and tableware, their Valentine’s Dinner menu – available on 13 and 14 Feb 2014 – is that of a spectrum of flavours so beautifully complex, we strongly urge couples to spend the special occasion there.

Museo V Day

Begin your evening at the restaurant by experiencing how to make your own Sangria with your date. Following which, enjoy the Three-appetisers Platter, a medley of smoked duck breast, chicken consomme flavoured with cepes mushrooms, and basil cheese baked king oyster. They are all flavourful but the star of the show has definitely got to be the main courses. Choose from Grilled Wagyu Beef Rump and King Prawn in Crispy Kataifi Pastry or Grilled Half Lobster and Chicken Roulade. Dessert is a serving of Tiramisu with almond tuile, panna cotta and mango caviar.

After having a romantic 3-course dinner, continue the night with 1.5 hours of painting session at the art studio. This special promotion is available at S$288nett for two.

Picotin Express

Picotin Express

This well-loved European bistro has an astounding take on the Lunar New Year this year. You are in for a treat with the festive creations of Guoxia Pizza and Lijiang Pizza which are both S$22 each. The former is a bold and unique pairing of roast duck, plum sauce and water chestnut; the latter is Picotin’s rendition of a Chinese-inspired pizza, featuring a brilliant combination of Chinese sausages and spring onions. And in case the tastes do not wow you enough, take delight in the names that are bestowed upon – both are named after Chinese horse breeds in lieu of the celebratory year of the Horse. Talk about paying homage to Chinese traditions!

Picotin Pizza

For Valentine’s Day, look out for the Black Board Specials only available on 14 Feb 2014. Starters include Burrata, Parma Ham and Rocket Salad (S$26); Charcuterie Platter (S$18); and our pick among all – the Avocado and Lobster Salad (S$19). Options for the main courses include a heavenly combination of Pan Fried Halibut with spinach atop tomato cream sauce and potato roesti (S$35); Crab and Prawn Risotto (S$28); and Cote de Boeuf to share (S$90). Sweet endings include Duo of Strawberry (S$12), but we’d recommend the Trio of Chocolate (S$20) to share because the brownie is too good to pass.
