The Singapore Flyer Premium Sky Dining – An Experience Both Romantic & Beautiful
Maybe one day if you were to do a proposal, it could be carried out at the Singapore Flyer.
Admittedly, this is my first time up the Singapore Flyer, Asia’s largest Giant Observation Wheel, for a unique (and romantic) Sky Dining experience.
Let’s see… a 4-course menu, a personal in-flight host, in the comfort of a rotating capsule, bringing you the most amazing sights of Singapore including Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay skyline and The Central Business District.
If the skies are clearer, you can even view Sentosa Island and parts of Malaysia and Indonesia.
“Look, we dated there, there, and there.”
The Premium Sky Dining
The four-course dinner comes with an appetizer, soup, your choice of main course, and dessert, all served within the capsule.
Dishes are seasonal. For example, the previous December Festive Menu ($329++ per couple) will included an Amuse-Bouche of Lobster Perfumed with Saffron and Caviar Served On Batard Loaf, Appetizer of Yuzu Crab Salad, a choice of Mains, a Framboisier Dessert, and a glass of House Wine and coffee or tea with Petit Fours.
The 2016 Celebration menu ($399.00++ per couple) offers Mains of Wagyu Beef Brisket, Chicken Roulade stuffed with Foie Gras or Black Cod and Citrus Orange Fennel Salad.
The Valentine’s Day menu for 2016 ($399.00 nett per couple) includes a five-course dinner for two served by an in-flight host, one glass of champagne per guest (served during dinner), and one 6R size commemorative photograph valued at $25.00.
The Experience Being On Top
I was actually quite excited and part jittery when I went for the dining. What do I do? What should I say? Do I take photos first, eat first, or admire the scenery first?
In retrospect after the first experience, I thought that the best way was to just chill, relax, enjoy the process and take the occasional photo (and be less trigger-happy). Perhaps I was too kancheong .
The capsule goes around for 2 rotations which work out to be an hour, so there is enough time to eat through the 4 course AND absorb how beautiful the city can be.
I do not know about you, being a Singapore-Flyer first timer, there was a tranquil calm feeling as the capsule goes through familiar sights, from the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay, The Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands.
These are places you could have dated, watched a musical together before. And that particular journey could become a love memory walkthrough.
Delicacies presented include Duck Rillette, Yuzu Crab Salad, Wagyu Beef Brisket, Broccolini, and Parsnip Puree, Chicken Roulade with Foie Gras and Duxelle Mushroom, and Black Cod and Citrus Orange Fennel Salad.
Personally, I liked the Wagyu Beef Brisket better. The fork-tender marbled, full cut meat had a buttery flavour and dense taste, covered in rich jus. It can be a heavy dish.
My female counterpart preferred the Chicken Roulade of Pistachio and Morel Mushroom Wrapped in Savoy Cabbage, accompanied with creamy potato puree and Madeira (Portuguese wine) sauce.
Initial reservation was that the food would turn cold quickly if we spent too much time appreciating the scenery. I thought they lasted in the open well. (So perhaps eat first, watch later.)
After the ride
Oh, it is not over yet. Diners can retreat to the exclusive Flyer Lounge for a cup of freshly-brewed coffee or tea after the meal, and then walk through the Journey of Dreams with multimedia 3D and interactive displays.
Valentine’s Day Menu
V’day 2016 menu is available exclusively on 12th, 13th and 14th Feb 2016 at 6.00pm, 7.00pm, and 8.30pm.
Priced at $399.00 nett per couple, it includes a five-course dinner for two served by an in-flight host, one glass of champagne per guest (served during dinner), and one 6R size commemorative photograph valued at $25.00.
