Looking for a last-minute Christmas or New Year’s dining option? Or perhaps just the perfect date night spot? Either way, head to Aura, mama!
Celebrating our wedding anniversary, I was running through the usual picks on the other side of the bay – and then I came across Aura. I’d been meaning to try it out for a while and what more perfect occasion!
Awesome views: Start with a cocktail (happy hour runs 5pm-8pm) in the sky lounge to check out those fab views and to catch the MBS light show. It’s so nice to see the Singapore skyline we all know and love from a different angle. I actually think this is the best angle!
Then head downstairs to the beautiful restaurant…
We took advantage of the fab Christmas and New Year 4 course set menu. For $88++, you start with a beautiful basket of bread served with oil and balsamic, followed by a wonderfully presented crab salad with smoked salmon and Cucumber tartare, then Caserecce pasta with truffle pesto.
My favourite course, the third, was a choice of Turkey or Sea bass (both excellent). You finish it all off with a Christmas log cake with candied cherries. Beautiful presentation, and full of flavour!
Besides the festive menu, check out some of their weekend brunch deals and also their weekday salad bar. Magnifico!
Aura is definitely one to try for that special occasion – or just because…
