While they opened their doors in 2005, it is still one of our favourite go-to restaurants that sparks romance during each visit. It is an urban oasis that’s located just a few minutes away from Orchard Road. With indoor and alfresco dining available, we recommend the latter as you’ll be able to truly soak in the lush greenery and verdant foliage in proximity. You can’t go wrong with the signature Truffle Shoestring Fries ($16) that is perfect for sharing. Leave some room for their yummy cakes and pastries too! Our tip is to avoid lunch and dinner time as they can get quite busy.
