qmark‘s top 3 haunts, perhaps as ideal VDay hangout spots:
PS. Cafe PALAIS
Heard of a beautiful sun-infused interior amid a lofty neo-colonial tropical setting (imagine floating B&W bungalow). Heard of famed Swiss Gruyere cheese with smoked ham for lunch. No reservations on weekends.
THE WHITE RABBIT
Seen a rabbit running on the website. Seen photos of ceremonious furniture, rustic materials and spatial sensitivity. Seen Takenouchi Webb’s office at Wessex and frowned at the red sofas of their latest project OverEasy at Fullerton. Renoir’s Luncheon at Boating Party comes to mind.
Knew of the old Clifford Pier, pickup point to Kusu Island. Knew of $12 bottled water, and a fantastic Marina Bay panorama. Aqua Restaurant Group’s latest development amid other cutting-edge F&B establishments in HK and Tokyo. Another case of adaptive reuse.
