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.
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?
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.
February is the shortest month, but it is no less exciting because Chinese New Year and Saint Valentine’s will keep us occupied. Celebrations after celebrations – this means massive feasting! Sounds like my idea of fun. Are you already looking forward to the month, as much as we do?
In the month of love and romance, we will be bringing you special Valentine’s Day features – look forward to Editor’s picks on romantic restaurants to celebrate with the love of your life, to Valentine’s Day ideas. While they say “if you find the right one, everyday is Valentine’s Day”, it is still a decent excuse to be extravagant. We really wouldn’t mind an extra surprise or a nice present.
Meanwhile, with so many big names opening in Singapore, it reiterates our blessing to have a place on this part of Earth. Laduree Patisserie, Jamie Oliver’s Jamie Restaurant and Tim Ho Wan are just some of the exciting ventures that will be opening new outlets here this year. We no longer have to fly overseas for all these delicacies; the world is coming to us.
Well then again, it may be just as evil – I cannot imagine how I am going to expand horizontally. Time to do some serious discussions on health tips, maybe.
Happy Saint Valentine’s, and have an indulgent month. Join us on our journey – on instagram, twitter and facebook – as we introduce more places around the world in search of good food and little sweetness in life.
When it comes to night markets in Taipei, most people are familiar with the famous ones such as Shilin, Raohe and Shida. However, not many know about Linjiang Street Night Market (also known as Tonghua Night Market) which is located on the fringe of a residential area in Da-an District, near to Taipei 101 and Xinyi.
The long queues outside Tim Ho Wan, the cheapest one Michelin star restaurant in the world, are a testament to its popularity. Waiting time is easily an hour, yet people queue up for their dim sum. Now, we will be able to enjoy the famous barbecued pork buns without having to fly to Hong Kong. Tim Ho Wan will be opening its first overseas outlet in the new atrium wing of Plaza Singapura on 10 April 2013.
Yet another pancake shop has popped up in the neighbourhood. This time, it’s Little Pancakes, located in the Upper Thomson area. What sets these pancakes apart, as the shop’s name suggests, is their size. Serving miniature pancakes that are about 3 inches in diameter, Little Pancakes offers both sweet and savoury options on the menu.
Whether you are looking for a restaurant to have reunion dinner with your family, or lo-hei with your friends and colleagues, here are some suggestions for Chinese New Year Dinner 2013.
Much has been said about Ryoshi Sushi Ikeikemaru, the sushi restaurant at the basement of Liang Court. I am going straight to the point: Whatever you have heard about Ryoshi – it is true. They serve surprisingly good and fresh sushi at very affordable prices.
