Here are our recommendations on where to indulge in Singapore. Bookmark this for when you want to spoil your loved ones!
Lunch at Pollen
Dine on fine cuisine in one of Singapore’s most romantic settings – the Flower Dome. Not only do you get to enjoy your meal surrounded by greenery, but all guests to Pollen enjoy complementary access to the Flower Dome and a buggy ride to and from the Gardens by the Bay drop off point.
Helming the kitchen is Head Chef Angelo Rosso bringing his experience from Marco Pierre White, Alain Ducasse, and The Fat Duck by Heston Blumenthal. Dinners can choose from a lunch set menu, dinner tasting menu, afternoon tea and of course an a la carte menu. The downstairs offers a fine dining experience in a relaxed garden setting while the second floor offers a more casual atmosphere to enjoy drinks or a light bite from the Terrace Menu.
High Tea at Anti:dote
Enjoy one of Singapore’s most extravagant high tea experiences at Anti:dote located inside the Fairmont Singapore. The meal starts with your choice of an exotic concoction of organic egg with sea urchin, salmon roe and caviar or a selection of dim sum.
The main treats of petite sandwiches, desserts and pastries come in a very Instagram worthy mini chest of drawers. Paired with TWG tea, go ahead and try to finish all of the goodies in one sitting. Even on an empty stomach, it’s no easy feat.
Dinner at IlLido at The Cliff
This stunning restaurant is located on atop a high hill at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and Spa. From here you can enjoy a sea breeze, water views and fine Italian cuisine. The setting will have you feeling like you’re on vacation even if it’s only for a couple hours over lunch or dinner.
While dinner time will give you a nice sunset to enjoy, lunch offers a more budget friendly set lunch menu for someone looking for a luxe experience for less.
Champagne Brunch at Colony
Singapore has no shortage of hotel Sunday brunch buffets, but the Vintage Champagne Brunch at Ritz-Carlton is one of the island’s best. Imagine a place where the shucked oysters on ice are actually fine oysters from France and Ireland and there are not 1 but 4 different types. The cheese selection is anything but ordinary with over 50 varieties from around the world. Forget the sliced sandwich meat some brunch buffets offer, this one has trays of Charcuterie. The indulgent offerings don’t end there as baked lobster smothered in cheese and butter as well as Beef Wellington and Veal Rack are the stars of the hot dishes.
Free-flow doesn’t have to mean low quality. At the Vintage Champagne Brunch, diners have a choice of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Blanc 2006, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2004, a selection of red and white wine, beer as well as Bombay gin & tonics and Spritzers made on demand. Loosen the belt buckle for this one! The Vintage Champagne Brunch is available every Sunday at S$188++ per adult.
