How does it really feel like to be at the top of the world? Fantabulous, of course. What about dining while looking down at the marvellous world below you? Even better.
Well, Tóng Lè Private Dining offers such a top-of-the-world experience. Sort of. It sits within the revolving tower of OUE building, and though it is on the tenth level, the experience spans across two levels and it is absolutely incredible. Using only the finest and most premium ingredients from around the world, expect world-class contemporary Chinese cuisine prepared by the team of highly-trained chefs, impeccable service by the team of polished wait staff, and a panoramic view of the Marina and Collyer Quay from the top. Tóng Lè Private Dining is indeed one of the best-kept secrets in town.
Our recent meal was one so remarkable that had us lingering for more. We are already planning a second visit back, and the two extremely value-for-money new sets – a 6-course Sky lunch (S$60/pax) and 7-course Heavenly Dinner (S$80/pax) — sweeten the idea even further. You might think an elaborate meal like this would cost a bomb; well, we thought so too. We were pleasantly shocked by the digestible price tags.
Still not your everyday restaurant prices of course, but for the amount and (superb) quality of food you get, it is a pretty sweet deal and it is little wonder the restaurant is regularly packed with loyal fans every day.
If you haven’t tried, here is sharing our experience and we know for sure you’ll be a fan with just one try. Here’s why Tóng Lè Private Dining is the best Chinese fine dining restaurant in Singapore.
MUSEO Restaurant & Bar is a great masterpiece.
If you haven’t heard, there is this enchanting restaurant that sits on the mezzanine level of Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove, and it is known as the “Art on the Isle”. The divine combination of art and culinary take our breath away every single time, and each visit still charms us like never before.
It is like Picasso and Warhol had joined forces and blessed this space with their artistic flares. Filled with magic and astounding surprises at every corner and in every detail, MUSEO is one of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore. Its notably fine culinary execution makes the restaurant a perfect venue for dining – celebrate a special occasion here, or treat yourselves to an unforgettable night of arm jamming and regale cuisine.
Because dining at MUSEO is one sexy choice that you must not miss for the world.
Everyone has their favourite special restaurant. A place where you go to celebrate a special occasion like birthday, anniversary or Valentine’s day. A place where you can bring a girl for the first date. A place where your partner and you go to have a great time. Or a place where girlfriends meet for girls’ night out.
Where to go for a romantic dinner? Here is our guide to Singapore’s 20 Most Romantic Restaurants.
For many, Valentine’s Day is a dreadful day as restaurants mark up their prices ridiculously. However, it is still possible to have fun celebrating Valentine’s Day – with your partner, your family, or a group of friends – if you know where to go.
Here’s my guide to Valentine’s Day Dinner in Singapore 2013.
There are some restaurants that one goes regularly, places that serve decent food at affordable prices. Then there are other places you go for special occasions – like a hot date, birthday celebration, or wedding anniversary.
When you are looking for somewhere to have a romantic dinner, Equinox Restaurant at Swissôtel The Stamford is one of those places that always come to mind. It has one of the best locations in Singapore, overlooking the beautiful city. But that aside, I also love that it is very versatile. You can bring your clients there for a business luncheon; hang out with your girlfriends over a leisure afternoon tea; or have a romantic date – it is a restaurant that is suitable for all occasions.
I recently sampled the new menu by Chef de Cuisine Lee Bennett, and it was a good meal. If you haven’t yet had the chance to try Equinox, give it a shot. If you have and it has been some time, it’s time to go back again.
Perched at the top of Marina Bay Sands, KU DÉ TA has one of the best dining spots in Singapore. Contrary to popular belief, Ku De Ta is not a fine dining restaurant; it is positioned as a casual dining place where you can get a nice cocktail and order a few dishes to share with friends.
That said, a meal at Ku De Ta is not what you would consider to be ‘cheap’. One is expected to spend at least $70/pax (without drinks). The price, of course, might put off many people. But when you get to enjoy the panoramic view of Singapore’s skyline for the whole night, this is certainly a place that is worth splurging on.
With Valentine’s Day just two weeks away, the question on everyone’s mind: where to go for a romantic date?
Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, I’d suggest celebrating it the weekend before, or a few days after. Unless both of you have violent objections and insist on celebrating it on the actual day, it really doesn’t make sense to pay so much just because it is February fourteenth.
As such, this post is mainly on romantic restaurants in Singapore which I think are worth trying; you can also use it as a guide for other special occasions. (I’m not including the details of Valentine’s Day set menus. If you want to find out more, please call the respective restaurant to check their Valentine’s Day promotions.)
Here are some suggestions on where to go for Valentine’s Day Dinner 2012.
Most people have the impression that I always eat at fine dining restaurants, but my friends would know that I usually prefer going to casual places that are cosy and provide good food at reasonable prices.
But sometimes if you want a very good meal, you really have to fork out top money for it. JAAN Restaurant at Swissotel is the prime example. I had one of my best meals of 2011 at JAAN. I’m going out on a limb and say that they are among the top restaurants in Singapore.
