Whether you’re hoping to infuse some life into a relationship or you’ve found a fresh date on tinder, one thing’s for sure, two thing’s for certain: the search & grind to get lucky… at finding a reasonable plate of food to bite into is an ongoing battle.
Although the expression “Love is priceless” is threaded throughout our culture, the avenue through which we express that love surely comes with a price tag.
Your go-to nasi lemak & roti-canai place might settle for a cheap afternoon lunch outing with your best bud but as long as dressing to impress is still a thing and chivalry isn’t dead(depending on who you ask), you’d be doing yourself a favor thinning out your wallet – if only to lessen the weight.
Here we present an argument for the lesser known top 5 better restaurants to take a significant other for Valentine’s day.
1. Vantador(Dinner Menu)
As time, a precious commodity becomes irreversibly a sunken cost, patience – or the conscious acceptance of slowing down – has become a rare breed.
Vantador, nesting on a cross section between novelty and tradition, has taken on the challenge of putting sexy back into patience. It’s dried aged technique – beef is hung in a cooler for at least 30 days to deprive it of moisture while the enzymes work with purpose to break down the sinuous muscle tissue – leaves you at the mercy of its buttery texture and extraordinarily concentrated flavor.
It’s meat-centric theme certainly is ever-present as its carnivorous displays are left in full blossom for the viewing pleasure of those hungry – for meat and hopefully, for love.

2. Skillet at 163(Dinner Menu)
When creativity, modernity, and passion finds its rightful place at European cooking, the result is a hybrid of beautifully designed artisanal European-Asian fusion cooking.
At Skillet 163, you’d be hard-pressed to find its enriching experience to not be romantic, picture-perfect and aphrodisiacal in every way imaginable. The environment is enough to woo most mortals but the menu is littered with enough turn-on words(Lobster Cappuccino, Foie Gras, Guinea Fowl), that it will leave you and your partner with an afterthought: Is it the food or is it him/her?.
Skillet 163 trades on being unapologetically romantic, fun-filled and provocative: all the telltale signs of a good time that’ll – guarantees not included – translate to an even better time(finger’s cross) post-meal.

3. Babe Tapas Fun Dining(Valentine’s Menu)
Babe has all the makings of a fine dining restaurant disguised as a “fun” romantic getaway: skyline view, Japanese-inspired architecture, full-bodied curvatures and its premium price point ties in perfectly to set the tone for the rest of the evening.
While some places may turn on its heels and shy away from its haute cuisine status, Babe has wholly embraced its “fancy smancy” status – and for good reason: it’s perpetually romantic and decidedly strategic to link love and romance around class and high status.
The food, a blend of authentic Japanese tapas with the occasional menu revamp, waxes creative(Otoro Spring Rolls, Uni, Yamaimo, A5 Wagyu with Sichuan Pepper Butter); the environment is blissful. All the trappings of a perfect night.

4. Poseidon Caviar and Seafood(Valentine’s Menu)
Poseidon may not be the god of Love, Beauty, Pleasure, and Procreation, but at Poseidon Caviar & Seafood bar, we think Aphrodite might have a run for her money.
This immersive establishment speaks the language of seduction with it’s special Valentines Day Menu, aptly titled “Oceans of Love”. From Morecombay Rock Oysters and Smoked Mussels, to Britany Blue Lobster and A5 Miyazaki Wagyu, indulgence is not an option, it’s the name of the game.
Pair your meal with a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc and finish your experience with a Not-so-French toast topped with Caviar kisses for dessert. Did we forget to mention that Oysters are aphrodisiacs?

5. Nathalie Gourmet Studio(Valentine’s Menu)
If you find yourself at a crossroad wondering if Asian and French cuisine meshes well together , you’d likely find your doubts at the sharp end of Nathalie’s creative wit. Her pride, joy and raison d’etre is fully fleshed out at its peak where romance and hunger preseats more romance and lust(a similar hungry beast altogether).
From the Tom Kha Gai Liquid Sphere to the Seabass Carpaccio with Green Namh Dressing, you’d be astonished by the seamless blend of umami Asian flairs with the gourmet feel of authentic French classics, a central point where the mind meets the body and all the elements seem to fall into place.
