14 Restaurant/Cafe Recommendations For Valentine’s Day!

Food, Lifestyle

We firmly believe that the way to anyone’s (not just a man’s) heart is through the stomach and so here’s a curated list of (only the best) restaurants and cafes you could bring your lovely valentine to for a scrumptious meal this 14th of Feb.

 

Mimi Restaurant serves up modern Chinese cuisine and clever cocktails created with the intent to delight.  Specially for Valentine’s Day, there is a set menu for 2, called the ‘Great Devotion 只羡鴛鴦不羡仙’, which is available from 14 February to 15 February.

The 5-course menu was designed carefully by head chef, Sam Cheong ,who was inspired by a popular folktale “Cowherd and the Weaver Girl” when conceptualising the menu. Each dish carries poignant meaning and a puny sense of humour. ‘Always Be My Dumpling’ & ‘Sea You Forever’ are 2 of the cheekily named dishes.

Definitely top choice for couples looking to enjoy a delicious contemporary Asian meal and some clever word-play.
