With the lifting of dine-in restrictions for vaccinated individuals, we are all eager to catch up with a small group of friends over a delicious meal at some of our favourite restaurants on the island. As daily Covid-19 cases continue to be reported, most of us may still be wary of visiting public places even with safety measures in place. A good way to ease into it while getting used to the new normal is to book restaurants with alfresco areas. Here are some of the best spots to consider.
1. The Alkaff Mansion
Escape the city’s hustle and bustle by heading to The Alkaff Mansion, located in a secluded spot in Telok Blangah Hill Park. It houses three distinct dining concepts, namely pintxo bar Txa, Spanish restaurant Una and Wildseed Café. Book the bar and dine at the well-ventilated al fresco area surrounded by lush greenery. It’s best to come at dinner, when the sun has set and the weather is cooler. Start the night with a refreshing DIY Sangria Punchbowl (good for parties of three to five) as well as a selection of tasty tapas, among which are the ham croquettes, deep-fried Carabinero prawns and Spanish omelette studded with caramelised onions.
