The Wine Company, Sentosa Boardwalk

Met the boyfriend for a nice cozy meal at Wasabi Tei on Valentine's Day because we were wise enough not to join the long queue for an exorbitant dinner on Valentine's Day itself. We decided to celebrate on the Saturday after Valentine's Day instead.

As we were both really busy the week before and were unable to secure a reservation at most places, we decided to walk into The Wine Company along Sentosa Boardwalk and try our luck. I really wanted to try this place the last time we strolled past because the ambience seemed really awesome. And it was.

We came early at about 6 pm so the restaurant was quite empty except for a few tables at the back. The restaurant became steadily more crowded as the hours ticked by into the night. We managed to catch a glimpse of the setting sun between the thick clouds before it slipped out of sight.

We could sit in the alfresco area or indoors. It would have been awesome sitting in the alfresco area, watching the sun set with a glass of wine in hand and a balmy breeze in the air. However, there were dark clouds gathering in the sky and we were afraid it would rain soon so we choose the table indoors instead. 

After studying the menu for awhile, we decided to go for the set dinner. The set dinner ($32.80) comes with apperitif (a glass of bubbly, coke, or sprite); starter (soup of the day or cheese and fruit); main (prawn linguine or fish and chips); dessert (ice cream with a choice of chocolate, vanilla, or green tea); and coffee or tea. We wanted to open a bottle of red wine to celebrate Valentine's Day but decided against it since the boyfriend is driving. 

We chose bubbly and soup. The soup of the day was cream of mushroom. I like it. It was thick and creamy with bits of mushroom in the broth.

I picked the Prawn Linguine while the boyfriend had Fish and Chips. The Prawn Linguine was quite good. The linguine was not done al dente; it was slightly overcooked. However, it was tossed with olive oil and fragrant spices that made the dish quite tasty. The prawns were juicy and fresh, and I love the sweet cherry tomatoes.

The boyfriend's Fish and Chips were good! I like the fried fish with its light batter and soft tender fish fillet within. The boyfriend commented that it was a little too salty but I felt that it tasted just fine.

Ended the meal with a green tea ice cream each and some tea and coffee. It was dark outside by then and the Wine Company started to glow with small candles placed on each table. The dim lights in the restaurant coupled with the colorful glass at the back and glowing red candles made me want to sit back, close my eyes and just... breathe.

Happy Valentine's Day! Nothing beats spending quality time with the boyfriend over awesome food and drinks!
