For the month of January, we decided to check out the F&B establishments at Sentosa Cove now that it’s much more convenient to get to places in our trusty little Honda City.
It was a weekday afternoon so the place was relatively quiet. While some restaurants are already opened for business, most are still in the midst of renovation. We strolled around aimlessly, enjoying the sea breeze and taking in the surrounding. An Italian ice cream parlour beckoned and I happily did a taste test and ordered without first checking the price! Needless to say we paid through the nose for what I must admit, 2 very delicious scoops.
We eventually settled down comfortably in the tastefully decorated Sabio by the Sea where we savoured morsels of delish Iberico ham, chorizo braised in red wine and dipped crusty bread into leftover creamy calamari white wine sauce. The many yachts docking at the marina bobbed up and down furiously as a huge storm approached while we looked on with full stomachs from where we were lounging lazily, sipping sangria and pineapple juice. A meal without food on the floor, mess on the table, sauce on the face and hair = Pure bliss = well-earned couple time!
And while we were in the vicinity, we drove around the exclusive neighbourhood and balked at mansions in all shapes, sizes and structures. Flintstone house. Greek inspired holiday home. Florida themed sunshine abode. Swanky Manhattan styled residence. Traditional British country home. Little wonder why residents here don’t bat an eyelid paying 10 bucks for gelato!
