The Man and I, well, what can I say? We really do love our food a lot. We work hard so we try to eat ‘hard’ and well as a little treat to ourselves.
We have our fave haunts but we also like sussing out new places. One random Friday evening, we decided to head on out for dinner, just the 2 of us. When we have evenings like these, we randomly call them our date nights. There’s no need to have a fixed day in the week for such date nights – after all, we’ve been married for coming to 6 years now.
I badgered the Man and asked him where he was going to be taking me. He refused to spill the beans, of course. We parked at Robertson Quay and my eyes darted at the various restaurants; wondering where it could be. The secret venue was revealed and it was a place that neither of us had been before.
Gee, I guess this was somewhat exciting! A new restaurant that came highly recommended by one of the Man’s Japanese friends.
Not knowing what to order, I left the ordering to the Man who ordered an assorted sashimi, a few char-grilled specialties and their house french specialties.
I found it a little odd that a Japanese restaurant would serve French dishes on their menu. But the Man actually liked the tender pork that was picked out by our server. Turns out that the restaurant is helmed by 2 chefs – a sushi chef and a French cuisine chef.
From the preparation of sushi and sashimi, the traditional Japanese charcoal robata grilling to the charcoal-grilling of French BBQ; our chefs strive to create menus that offer the tastiest feel of fish in any cooking way possible.
And since it was a Friday, we could officially let our hair down and be merry! Merry, we were indeed after trying to finish off this bottle of sake! That’s when we talked and decided that we ought to ‘up the stakes’ when we head out for our date nights. Instead of always trying to crack our heads where to go, we should each think of a place that we’ve both never been before to go on our date nights.
Since the Man started the ball rolling with Ginza Kuroson, I will have to think of a Japanese restaurant to bring him to on our next outing. Ooh, this will be pretty fun! We even thought of different themes / cuisines for the coming months. I rubbed my palms in glee for I really do like little challenges like these.
So, how would we know who made the better choice in the selection of restaurant? No voting required this time round. We’ll just let our taste-buds be the judge and have a good time enjoying each other’s company. 🙂
Stay tuned to find out my pick of Japanese restaurant for our next date-night challenge.Ginza Kuroson Singapore Address: 30 Robertson Quay, #01-10, Riverside View, Singapore 238251 Telephone: +65 6737 5547
