Make the best out of your restaurant-hopping day at Harbour City, where you can enjoy the front-row view of Victoria Harbour as well as the endless picture-worthy gastronomic options this epicurean capital has to offer.
Impeccable views with your feast
Let a perfect waterfront dining experience set the pace for your relaxing day. The 270-degree harbor view is the most stunning backdrop for your sensational meal, spanning international delights available from dawn to dusk.
The 2,000-square-feet balcony at Paper Moon is where you are spoilt for choices on the brunch menu prepared by Executive Chef Landi Sergio, while enjoying the views. Unfold your napkin and let the Italian fare shine through an array of Italian cold cuts and the soulful Spaghetti with lobster, cherry tomatoes and basil. Your tippling pleasure is taken care of too. At an additional cost, you can enjoy a free-flow selection of bubbly and wine so you can wind down and picture yourself in Capri, by the coast of Italy.
Fond memories of Japan’s fish markets will stir at the sight of the unobstructed ocean views in front of you. Here at ANA Ten, the flashy jewels of freshest catch are elegantly seated on the seasonal Sashimi Platter. Such staples as Salmon loin, spot prawns, and scallops are joined by seasonal catch flown in from Japan – splendid alfonsino, greater amberjack and pacific saury, to take the crustacean medley to a whole new level.
For a romantic afternoon with your beloved, you can’t go wrong with a meticulously curated tea set as you watch the sun fall below the horizon. The golden glows of the evening glisten with the three-tier high tea offering at Palco. The spellbinding sunset composes a sedate affair so you can relish both the savory snacks like a sea urchin tart and mussel bisque with saffron, as well as sweet treats like a wild berries puff and lemon sorbet on the rack.
As the night falls, let the unblemished skyline be the backdrop of your dinner’s opulent glory at GāGǐNāng. The old town vibe of the lavish stone carving and ceramics sits easily with the contemporary take of Chiu Chow cuisine served up by the restaurant – think Hokkaido akagai clam in chili and garlic soya and Baked king prawn with preserved olive.
Food ‘gram treasures
The panoramic views are not the only focal point of your social media content, so are the just as aesthetically pleasing creations on the plates!
Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel has transformed the local delights that we come to know and love to a variety of Instagrammable pastries. Nostalgic nods to street food favorites like fish balls and roasted chestnuts, as well as the breakfast staple pineapple bun are reimagined to the most drool-worthy specialties.
Make your sweet-toothed friends and followers jealous with a Boomerang shot of the most lofty yet wobbly pancakes tower! The Crème Brûlée Pancake by J.S. FOODIES lends some texture to the puffy pancake game while adding a golden sheen to the mix. Fresh fruits and rich whipped cream top off the stack as a finishing touch.
The old glamor decor of Quan Alley itself is already a throw-back to the 1960s. Yet the visual sensation translates to the menu just as well. The star dishes not only tantalize your taste buds but are insanely pleasing to the eyes too. The Pork Neck Rose Pond is filled with neatly constructed roses made out of fresh pork neck slices. Each “petal” is delicately arranged to imbue a poetic vibe to your Insta stories.
SAKImoto Bakery’s fluffy-soft bread probably needs no introduction. If you have yet to make up your mind on your favorite flavor of jam to take home, you’re in for a treat with the Shokupan Jam Set. Served on a nifty wooden tray, the nine-grid marked and freshly toasted shokupan (Japanese milk bread) comes with three jams of your choosing. All handcrafted and flown in directly from Japan, each dollop of jams sits elegantly like a jewel, waiting to be crowned as your most liked picture.
With so many dining options with sweeping harbor views and picture-perfect signature creations to choose from, you won’t be the only one who wants to snap away before your partner-in-crime across the table digs in. But do act fast before your stomach starts growling!
