[Sponsored] Variety is the spice of life, so the old saying goes, and if you’re looking to add some spice to your Valentine’s Day this year, a special meal is in order. Dinner at a familiar restaurant is an easy option but if you really want to impress that special someone, show them that you really get them by booking a table at a restaurant that matches their personality. Here are eight ideas.
For the Hands-On Bookworm: Salted & Hung
Westholme wagyu flank
If your partner has literary inclinations, they’ll definitely enjoy Salted & Hung’s favorite quote: “All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others”. And if they like getting their hands dirty in the kitchen, they’ll love the restaurant’s focus on house-cured meats. For Valentine’s Day, Salted & Hung is serving a five-course menu
($120 per person) which includes carabinero prawns with prawn butter, pickled seaweed and bergamot gel, and Westholme wagyu flank with roasted pumpkin onion creme. Beverage pairings are available for an additional $65. Book now!
For the Old School Romantic: The White Rabbit
Housed in a chapel that dates back to the 1930s, The White Rabbit draws inspiration from Alice in Wonderland and old world traditions (definitely one for fans of old fashioned romance!). Their Valentine’s Day dinner
($108 for first seating, $118 for second seating with an additional intermezzo course) features cured yellowfin tuna loin, paupiette of Dover sole and a moscato “snow globe” for dessert. Beverage pairings are available for an additional $48. Book now!

tells you everything you need to know about the vibe here: $69 gets you a free flow of ribs and Jack Daniel’s. Book now!
For the Wholesome Home Cook: Open Farm Community
Proving that Singapore can have a farm-to-table dining culture, Chef Ryan Clift of Open Farm Community creates innovative dishes using seasonal, locally-sourced produce—perfect for that lovable locavore in your life. For Valentine’s Day, they’ll be offering heirloom tomato salad with pickled baby beetroots, rose marinated duck breast with confit duck leg croquette and flambeed banana, and more ($80 for a three-course menu
, $128 for a five-course tasting menu). Book now!

($98 for non-vegetarian, $88 for vegetarian). From tandoor-grilled lobster to tawa-grilled rosemary lamb and Alkapuri bharwan chicken, it’s a feast fit for a maharaja and maharani (or maharaja and maharaja, or maharani and maharani, as the case may be). Book now!
For the Trendy Party Type: Izy Dining & Bar
If dinner is just the beginning of your Valentine’s Day plans, then you’ll want to head to contemporary izakaya Izy. They’ve come up with a seven course omakase menu
($230 for two) complete with cocktail pairings (an additional $30 for a set of three). After that, the rest of Club Street awaits. Book now!
For the Romantic Roadtripper: The Summerhouse
While you wait for your next road trip together, bide your time with a drive out to the Seletar Aerospace Park and its new lifestyle hub, The Oval. That’s where you’ll find The Summerhouse, a charming restaurant housed in a colonial-era bungalow. Their six- and ten-course Valentine’s Day dinner menus
(from $300 per couple including two glasses of champagne) has “kelong” rojak, grouper with carrot pesto and orange blossom hollandaise, and 72-hour sous-vide Iberico pork collar among the eye-catching items. Book now!
