[Giveaway] Great Food, Great View; Why Quayside Isle is the Dining Destination of Choice for Special Occasions

Have you been to Quayside Isle?

It is located on Sentosa Island, within the Sentosa Cove estate, just beside W Hotel and The Residences at W Singapore. Quayside Isle is the only integrated retail development within the estate, offering a myriad of waterfront international dining concepts and speciality retail stores.

Best of all, it offers a breath-taking view of the marina, making it an awesome dining destination of choice, especially for special occasions when you are looking to pamper yourself with great food and drinks, topped a great view.

While most of us would find it impossible to afford a home in the Sentosa Cove estate, this doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy the same marina front lifestyle enjoyed by the residents there at Quayside Isle. Quayside Isle offers 25 exciting dining and shopping concepts, with an extensive food selection of specially curated new-to-market restaurants as well as new dining concepts from established groups, and specialty retail stores.

Here are three tenants Rachel and I visited recently:

Brussels Sprout operates three restaurants across Singapore and is best known for it’s Belgian beers and mussels. They offer an array of bar food as well as comfort food for an indulgent good time.

Draught beers on the menu which pair well with the food include Stella Artois, Hoegaarden White, Leffe Blonde, Leffe Brune, Hoegaarden Rosee and Lindermans. Stella Artois is great for light drinking. Hoegaarden White – well-known for its taste of hops and wheat, was served with small eats like Beef Tartare on Toast, Belgian Rollmops, Crispy North Sea Shrimp Croquettes and Homemade Belgian Cheese Balls. Leffe Blonde – first brewed by monks of the Abbey Notre Dame de Leffe – golden in colour, silky in mouthfeel and sweet in taste; went well with mussels and fries. The more bitter Leffe Brune went well with the heavy meat dishes while the Hoegaarden Rosee and Lindermans were like drinking a fizzy, alcoholic dessert.

    I’ll be bringing my boyfriend. We used to work there part time while studying but could never bear to pay for extravagant meals there.

    We’ve both started working recently, not rich enough yet, so a subsidised meal as we reflect on the past and build our own future would be greatly appreciated!

    Our favourite tenant is Jasons because we love to kill time in supermarkets. Although this outlet isn’t very big, when pastries just come out of the oven the whole place smells awesome. And you can see live seafood like oysters! And all the atas food items we may never buy, but see also shiok HAHA.

    Thanks for this giveaway Alvinology!

    Gin Khao as I love its Watermelon Fried Rice which is a welcome change to the usual Pineapple fried rice available in most Thai restaurants. I am craving for this satisfying staple, brightened up with refreshing cubes of freshly cut tropical fruit on my upcoming birthday meal with my family please!

    Liked and shared. Kate Lee Gin Khao is my favourite as it is the best choice for Thai dinner with family and friends in a comfortable, casual ambience. I especially love its Thai Tea Molten Lava Cake which is not a common flavour but is undoutedly a befitting end to a Thai meal. The thai tea flavoured cake itself is moist, however its core of condense milk was not very flowy. I can even get to choose from coconut, mango, palm sugar, tom yum (yes, tom yum!), chocolate, vanilla or lychee sorbet to accompany the lava cake. Wow! Really craving to have it again!
