TL;DR – Can’t hardly wait.
Feb 14 is fast approaching and some of you might already be going through a mental checklist in your head to make it an exceptionally special one with the roses, chocolates, cheesy poetry and plush toy. If you’re still searching for that perfect gastronomic journey to embark on and spend the evening with that special someone, then look no further cause, here are our top picks bound to impress bae.
1) Le Binchotan
Le Binchotan is a French-Japanese jewel tucked away in a little alley of Telok Ayer’s Gemmill Lane. The moment you enter into its premises, it feels as though you’ve walked into an elegant-chic wine cellar or a hipster hollowed-out bunker. The interior exudes a pretty chilled-out vibe and its mirrored walls create an illusion of making the space seem much bigger than it really is. It is probably not-your-usual private candle light kind-of dining experience, as you’ll be seated at a bar in the company of other diners. But that will definitely be the least of your worries, because you can expect nothing but top-quality and freshest ingredients air flown from Japan, paired with delicate French techniques on one plate. It’s a match made in heaven especially for you and your beloved.

2) Picotin Express @ Bukit Timah
Picotin Express at Bukit Timah is located within the premises of the Champions Golf Course and boasts a stunning view of the lush green fairways. Don’t fret if golf isn’t your kind of sport, cause you’ll be able to people-watch while golfers practice their swings, when the kids are enjoying themselves at the playground or playing mini golf. The open-plan layout of the Picotin allows you and your loved one to get a little closer to nature, while savouring their recommended homemade pizzas and classic bistro fare paired with a delightful glass of wine.

If you and your special date enjoy the Thai cuisine, then you’ll both definitely appreciate the dishes at Long Chim located in the magnificent Marina Bay Sands. You’ll be able to feast on classier versions of authentic, traditional dishes. Sip on a couple of refreshing, Thai-inspired cocktails while gazing into the eyes of your other half. The interior of the restaurant has been thoughtfully decorated with items that will remind diners of Thailand, like the layout of the kitchen resembling a street-food cart or the Singha beer signboard on the wall. Guaranteed to be aroi mak!

Located along South Bridge Road, Bōruto is a unique Japanese-meets-Spanish-tapas-izakaya place. It is interesting how the concept of a Tapas bar and Izakaya are similar, even though they may be from two completely opposite cultures – both of which serve appetizers paired with copious amounts of alcohol. The night will definitely be a memorable one with the delectable Euro-Japanese fusion line up and treasure trove of alcoholic beverages.
