Xperience Restaurant @ So Sofitel

Aptly name, Xperience Restaurant is the place to visit to if you have had enough (who’s doesn’t?) of the over-familiar dining options in Singapore. Located at Sofitel So, its set up is chic with electric touches, complete with an open-concept kitchen assembled with prestigious Molteni equipment. I personally find Xperience’s approachable decor a major plus point, as one can indulge in fine dining fare sans the rigid formality common at white table joints, making this a suitable place for a date, catch up with friends or conversations with business clients.

Man Fu Yuan Dim Sum

One can’t help but feel cheery upon stepping into InterContinental’s Man Fu Yuan. Unlike most Chinese restaurants decked in dark woods, reds and golds, Man Fu Yuan has  romantic yet nostalgic interiors of Peranakan louvered windows shutters, butterfly chandeliers, oriental lattices in light woods and velvet lavender seats. One of the more chic Chinese restaurants, I must say.

Bridge

Quality modern European cuisine tends to be synonymous with expensive food. However at Bridge, one can enjoy impeccable plated, innovative creations at affordable prices. Although Bridge’s decor is simple, its fine-dining caliber offerings more than makes up for its humble fittings.

We started the meal with complimentary herb bread sticks and warm baguette. Seeing that this is increasingly a norm, Bridge ensures that the first impression was set right on track by complementing the carbs with unique truffle honey butter and plum butter. We wiped out everything out in an instant.
