Date Night: Fordham & Grand

FORDHAM_GRANDFordham & Grand on Craig Road has built their reputation as a late night supper spot, serving up cocktails and bites until the staggeringly late hour of 3am. How many mamas do you know who are regularly out that late? Well, not many that we know (we’re fond of saying that midnight is the new 3am!) but that doesn’t mean Fordham & Grand isn’t a fab place for a date night if you pop along at a more civilised hour of, say, 8pm. Tucked away behind a big wooden door, with the interior completely invisible from the street, it has a speakeasy vibe that its dark interior supports. With plain black walls, leather padded banquettes and low lighting it’s quite a romantic spot.

482062_333750773398116_56111311_nThe menu is Western, with a nice mix of veggie options (like the Green pea risotto above!) and seafood dishes, with a few big slabs of meat for the carnivores. Prices are around what you’d expect from Duxton Hill area — not cheap (mains around $30). The big seller (for me!) is that the wine list includes 100 bottles for UNDER $100 each, but there’s also a wide variety of credible cocktails on offer too.

We started out with the Burratina with cherry tomatoes and basil pesto, and the Mushroom Soup. Both were delicious: big chunks of real mushroom in the soup, and the burratina was creamy and delicious. They lost me ever-s0-slightly on the main courses — the Scallops with sauteed cauliflower and baby leeks was served with pasta and tasted slightly of curry, a bit of a strange combo of ingredients. My husband though was thrilled with his special of Pork Chop served with pearl onions, and pronounced it delicious. We were too stuffed to consider anything other than sharing a dessert (breaking our cardinal couple rule that we don’t share food!), so we ordered the Banana Cake with salted caramel and wolfed down every bite. To be honest, if you had served me up just a dish of the caramel sauce I could have happily eaten the whole thing!

The service at Fordham & Grand is really fantastic. Attentive without being intrusive, the pace of the meal was perfect and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. With a buzzing atmosphere, great (affordable) wine and decent food, Fordham & Grand is a fab place for a date night or to hit up with a group of buddies. And if you ever see it through to closing time at 3am, we owe you a drink mama!

The #Lifebeyondgrades campaign aims to break the taboo of discussing PSLE scores to stop kids from thinking those results will define who they are or will
become. Here’s Sassy Mama co-founder @mamayeowdevito: “It might come as a surprise, but I just do not remember my PSLE results! I
was always non-academic, and only just scraped through PSLE to get into
secondary school at St Theresa’s Convent. I recall studying really hard, having
lots of late nights, memorising, yet not doing too well. That period of my life is
a blur now; maybe I chose to block it out. I knew in secondary school I didn’t
want to go to JC and instead researched polytechnic courses for business and
marketing. 
I found my first job as a marketing communications assistant at Singapore
Marriott Hotel even before my last paper at Nanyang Polytechnic. I was so
excited about the job that the studying and results of my diploma didn’t
matter. 
I moved onto Raffles Hotel, then Pan Pacific Hotel and very quickly rose to
head marketing roles. There was so much pressure to perform but I always
had amazing bosses and mentors watching over me, believing in what I did. I
worked 25 hours a day but enjoyed every minute. This type of education - LIFE’s lessons, successes and failures - rather than academic lessons - have been the best education for me.

I am successful in my own right now – both in business and with my beautiful family for which I am grateful. I am so lucky to have found what I love to do and am still loving every minute of it!

I don’t remember my PSLE results but whatever they were, I didn’t let them define me. We should not let numbers define our lives; ultimately it’s much more important to help our children develop a strong character, and encourage them to pursue their personal passions. Because neither failure NOR success can be truly quantified.
A little ball of fluff just landed on your Wednesday!
