I’ve been to Valentino’s so many times now that I’ve lost count. But one thing remains for sure – Valentino’s has never once disappointed (Granted, prices here aren’t that cheap for family Italian dining). Oh and the panna cotta is still as good as before.
This is a very short post; it could easily fall under the definition of a pictorial. But since I’ve covered Valentino’s a few times before……please forgive me? For the proper reviews, please read my previous entries here: Review 1 and Review 2.

If you’re yearning for a serene retreat in the city this Christmas season, Halia, at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, offers an exquisite garden-dining experience amidst lush greenery.
The indoor dining area provides for an intimate, romantic dining experience, while the alfresco area proposes a relaxing and tranquil environment where dining is, literally, a breath of fresh-air.
I enjoyed my first dining destination as part of the Asia’s Dining Destination which saw us having dinner at db Bistro Moderne, helmed by Executive Chef Stephane Istel (Pictured above holding a slab of Kagoshima beef ready to be split and plated for our table).
To be honest, my experience at db was perhaps the most enjoyable of the lot, so much so that when a close friend’s birthday came around, we both chose to have dinner at db (On our own expense, of course) To dine at a restaurant twice in the short span of 2 weeks says quite a bit, I’ll say. I’ll blog about that particular dining experience shortly too!
[Note from Glenn: I visited Osia sometime in May or June last year: For the pictorial, see http://www.glenn.sg/2010/07/osia-at-resorts-world-sentosa-a-pictorial/]
Multi-award winning Australian restaurant, Osia, recently added another feather to its cap, clinching Best Dining Experience award at the Singapore Experience Awards 2011. Situated along the Festive Walk at Resorts World Sentosa, the 120-seater restaurant embodies the free-spirited nature of Australian dining and feel, with uncluttered interior bedecked in a neutral colour palette, creating a relaxing, laid-back and casual dining ambience.
Ling Zhi was a last minute change so we basically went in blindly, without research on what is worth the calories and what isn’t. Well, on hindsight, it was not a bad decision! I walked into the restaurant thinking, “Oh no…. Vegetarian Food” to “That was a great meal!” as I exited through the doors.
Entrance to the restaurant is via the lift lobby on the side of Liat Towers – right behind the ever-crowded taxi stand along Anguilla Park.
With a history dating back to the 1980s, the Da Paolo group has spawned a miniature empire providing fine Italian fare with 13 outlets island wide and counting – in the line-up are 2 restaurants, 2 BistroBar concept outlets, 1 Pizza Bar and 8 Gastronomia gourmet delis.
The Da Paolo Ristorante, for instance, embodies both the pleasures of Italian gourmet and wine. The branch at Holland Village exudes a relaxing ambience reminiscent of a tropical resort that provides for an ideal getaway from the bustling city where you will feel at ease.
MakeShake, the first customisable milkshake concept in Asia recently launched its flagship store at City Square Mall in October 2011.
Once you get down the escalator to the basement 2, MakeShake will immediately catch your attention. Its colourful façade with bold logos in shades of rainbow will prepare you for the jovial treats coming ahead.
At MakeShake, you can customise your own milkshake with a variety of Shake-Ins and flavours to choose from, blended with a homemade reduced sugar malted vanilla ice-cream –the less sweet ice cream will appeal to the health conscious. For those with a sweeter tooth, go all out with the add-ons.
