Set Lunch @ Privé
It was raining lightly when LK and I got there, not that it mattered much since the restaurant had no windows (what a pity!). I understand that this is supposed to be a private dining area but this amount of privacy was a little too excessive for me. I guess Yuan Oeij (Sugar Daddy @ Brown Sugar) and Michel Lu (who runs Superfamous & Hacienda) didn't want their diners to be snooped upon by other patrons at the Gastrobar. I hope they install some windows soon so as to gain maximum leverage of the view outside.
Starter: Organic Mushrooms & Wild Morel Soup
I love beef and my uncle S (who is really picky with food) had sworn that Privé serves one of the best steaks in Singapore. I had to try out for myself to taste what the fuss was all about. The steak arrived with enticing cross-marks from the grill and the aroma that wafted to my nostrils heightened my anticipation.
If fine dining isn't your cup of tea but you would still like to partake of the chillout atmosphere at the Marina, fret not forthis multi-concept F&B outlet has a Bakery Café for you to dine at whilst taking in the scenery or you could snack al fresco at the Gastrobar.
