Zafferano - Divine Dining With a View From The Top

Jolly greetings, ladies! We hope your Christmas was of glad tidings and a very merry one indeed! Whilst everyone's in the mood, we'd like you to get ready for a little shout-and-share we think would make you go 'Ooh! I want that!', more than just thrice!! 

Heard of 'Zafferano'? Been there yet? No? Well, we don't want to brag but here's what you've been missing out on...

The lovely people at the then-4-month-old restaurant-bar so kindly invited us for dinner last month! But what they probably didn't know was we had been dying to be spotted enjoying a meal there in our pretty dresses since we got wind of their opening! Oh, what shall we wear?

Stopped the ride at Golden Shoe next door and in a few, we were at the Ocean Financial Centre where our tummies were raring to be brought into the restaurant for that awesome meal that awaits. First, we had to be elevated to the 43rd floor. Sounds like there'll be quite a view while we satisfied our appetites!

'Ding!' The doors part and we have arrived!!! Out comes the Canon M camera from our kind sponsor, Click, to do its job!

On our way in, we walked by a kitchen full of smiles. We love its interactive design!

One of our hosts for the night, Michele - Director of Experience/Restaurant Manager. Indeed he was most helpful and well-informed!

Alcoholics, rejoice!
Zafferano has over 30 premium Italian wines on offer by the glass, served on wine-dispensing machines, in 3 different sizes - tasting, mid-, and full-size. Just ask their friendly wait-staff for assistance.

And then, there were more.. Is it just us or is there blinding light emanating from the cellar?

Took a snap-shot of the lounge area outside the restaurant before it got dark. Isn't it lovely?

The lofty space with floor-to-ceiling glass-windows made us feel generously welcome. We think this place is perfect for parties! Anyone tying the knot or turning a year older soon?

View was too good not to pose next to.

Alright! Time to head back in!

As we were seated, we couldn't help but notice the lovely decor. Picture!!!

Having a look at the menu as dusk falls.

As a pre-dinner treat, a ladies' cocktail-blend named 'Dirty Passion' was specially concocted for us. What a tease!
Tequila-based martini blended with apple-juice, passion-fruit-liquor, lemon, lime with brown-sugar gave the mostly-sweet drink a slight hint of sourness. We loved it!

Mmm... A selection of fresh breads!

Burrata Cheese and Cherry Tomatoes with Basil
True-blue cheese-fans, you will adore the rich, creamy taste of this not-so-little white block of heaven that's nicely balanced by the refreshing flavours of the tomatoes. Yummy!

We love attention to detail. Even their serving boards bear their initial.


Carpaccio of Hokkaido Scallops with Bronte-pistachios and Mint
This dish is especially worth mentioning because as soon as Izan heard than Kim didn't eat cheese, she had the chef whip this up for her. Such hospitality! And, ladies, it tasted as fabulous as it looked!!! Soft, moist slivers of ocean-goodness melting in your mouth...

Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms and Black Truffle
Risotto was cooked to perfect-bite and so well-coated with butter and cream! A simple, yet delicious treat!! We *heart* truffles!

Slow-cooked Wagyu Beef-cheek in Chianti Red Wine with artichoke and black truffles
Ladies and gentlemen, to get high, you HAVE to try this!!!
This flavourful piece of heaven blew us away with its incredible tender-juicyness! You KNOW the arduous hours of slow-cooking was all well worth it!!

Mini Sweet-treats on a Tray
Nicely done classics like tiramisu, fine chocolate-mousse, premium chocolate cigar filled with Amedei black chocolate 70% mousse (that wasn't so common) and creme brulee, with a lime-sorbet that refreshed our palates in-between each. The perfect ending to a perfect meal with a view!

The mastermind behind our big, satisfied bellies that night - Chef Roberto de Franco! 

It was time to continue our girly chit-chat back outside over drinks and that city-scape-view that has transformed into a picture of beautiful lights. We had to let you know how impressed we were with the Canon M camera! The place was pretty dark! Where did all that light come from??

We caught the laser-light show, and what a sight it was! Once again, the Canon M didn't disappoint.


The city's skyline sure looks lovely at night.

Alas, it's time for us to leave! But, not without one final shot with the sweet and ever-bubbly Izan whose hospitality was seamless! You can be sure we'll be back!
