6 Dining Spots For Valentine’s Day

Good food to get you in the mood for love.

1) Dining On Cloud 9

Revel in romance as you and your beau indulge in Dining on Cloud 9’s extraordinary four-course dining experience in a moving cable car. Stretching across 90 minutes with scenic views of HarbourFront and Sentosa island, the romantic journey starts with a glass of champagne and a salmon appetiser, followed by a choice of either red quinoa crusted black cod or a 36-hour slow-braised bobby veal shank, before ending on a sweet note with a luscious dessert of fruite praline mousse with manjari ganache and raspberry elderflower jelly.

2) Lewin Terrace 

Nestled in the heart of Fort Canning Park, Lewin Terrace offers lovebirds a respite from the cacophony of city life with its secluded location amid the lush foliage of the historic park. The Japanese-French fusion restaurant continues to fan the flames of desire as it presents couples a masterfully prepared five-course dinner menu by Chef de Cuisine Hiroyuki Shinkai this Valentine’s Day, featuring dishes such as duck tartare and Kagoshima A4 Wagyu beef steak served with foie gras. Couples may opt for a 5-glass wine pairing to further enhance their dining experience.

3) Montreux Jazz Café

Fancy smooth jazzy tunes to go along with your food? At Montreux Jazz Café, couples can enjoy the best of both worlds by tucking into its Valentine’s Day special five-course degustation menu to the musical accompaniment of local veteran maestro Louis Soliano and his band. Crafted by Chef Derek Ang, dinner starts off with tantalising starters of grilled compressed watermelon served with homemade strawberry granita and roasted prawn bisque, followed by a main of either the grilled Chilean sea bass or the braised Kobe oxtail roulade, and finally ending with sweet delight of a trio of citrus sorbets and caramelised banana crpes topped with triple chocolate ice cream.
