What a treat! Last night we went to the experimentally delicious Pollen.  This lovely restaurant is situated in a garden oasis within the many sculptures and lush vegetation of Gardens by The Bay.  When you arrive at the taxi stand near the visitor’s centre, a special buggy comes to pick you up and drive you through the gardens directly to the front door.  There is indoor dining, which is a fresh, cool break from the heat and humidity of Singapore, or you can dine alfresco upstairs.

Even inside (where we sat) there are flowers and plants which beautifully decorate the border of the restaurant to give a sophisticated and romantic atmosphere.  Michelin star chef Jason Atherton is the director of the kitchen– He has also opened Esquina in Singapore and his flagship Pollen Street Social, in London.

POLLEN’s talented team of culinary chefs include executive chef Colin Buchan who was from Marco Pierre White’s L’Escargot and Gordon Ramsay’s York and Albany; and executive pastry chef Andres Lara, formerly from Iggy’s in Singapore, Noma in Denmark and elBulli in Spain.

They have vegetarian options (yay!) and an extensive tasting menu.  We went a la carte and thought all of the dishes that we tried were beautifully prepared, used lots of interesting textures as well as some surprising flavors. To my delight, there were many amuse bouche to please the palate in between plates.  In a word, and for lack of a better word… yummy!

This is a great date night idea and perfect place to wear something fun.  I went for a little black dress, pearl jewelry and gold accessories:
