On the Martini Glass: Amuse Bouche of foamy Mushroom Cappuccino,
followed by Smoked Cheese Risotto and Truffle
This time around, the mood was much lighter. He had just gotten back from a two-week business trip in Geneva, and I was looking for therapy in the form of either orgasmic food, or massage. Food won out. Lucky for us, there were still Restaurant Week seats for Il Lido. Usually, it would be among the first restaurants to be fully booked.
Restaurant Week happens twice a year, every March and October, and is fast becoming a good reminder to make space to re-connect without the kids in tow. Our usual date is a late night movie, so it's good to mix it up once in a while. If you wish to catch some of the top Singapore restaurants at a deal, do watch out for their registration the month before. Last year, we've tried out Table at 7, and more recently, Taratata Bistrot and Stellar at 1-Altitude.
