So Friday (22 January to be precise heh) was someone’s birthday!
One half of Damianwithsandra grew a year older (I’ll leave you and your snooping senses to find out how old she turned). It was in our own unique fashion that we celebrated her birthday!
Having perused the Internet for a good steakhouse, our choice (or Damian’s, rather) was Les Bouchons, a realistic Parisian steakhouse! It was difficult to keep a pair of hungry souls away from our dinner spot but nevertheless, we found time to enjoy the sights and sounds around Ann Siang Hill!
Ann Siang Hill has quite the nightlife vibe- courtesy of the numerous bars and pubs situated along Ann Siang Road and Club Street. However few would know of its history as a plantation of nutmegs and cloves. Many of the shophouses were built in the early 1900s; to us, they looked just like the shophouses found in Hong Kong!
The restaurant was inconspicuously located in one such shophouse. The interior was very Parisian, with dim, cascading lights, brick walls with old portraits and- you guessed it- a bar counter! It was so dim that our photos turned out quite grainy, but the food was something special altogether!
After our fabulous experience at Les Bouchons, we went somewhere quiet to celebrate Sandra’s birthday. We will let the pictures speak for her reaction!
All in all, it had been a wonderful evening for the both of us and we certainly hope to bring more fun-tastic entries and adventures in the coming days ahead!
Les Bouchons is located at 7 Ann Siang Road, Singapore 069689. We highly recommend this place for a romantic or simple casual dining experience. Dinner menus start around $40, but it is sooooooooo worth it!
