#1 Stop - Wine Mansion

Start your adventure with this epic lychee sparkling wine.

Gancia Romino Lychee Prosecco (Italy) ($42 for takeaway)

Wine Mansion - Gancia Romino Lychee Prosecco (Italy)

If you are a fan of sweet wines or champagnes, this would flutter your heart.

Pleasantly sweet and delicate, the flavour of lychee does a little tap-dance on your tongue as you take your sips, reinvigorating you for the food that is to come next.

Fried Chicken with Kimchi Yoghurt Sauce ($18)

Singapore Wine Mansion - Fried Chicken with kimchi yoghurt sauce

I loved how the skin was fried to 100% crispiness and they were still able to maintain the tenderness and moisture of the chicken meat. What made this dish stood out from the rest was that special Kimchi Yoghurt sauce. The fusion was nothing short of genius - the sour-spicy flavours helped to balance out the possible lethargy you might feel from eating too much of the fried skin. I devoured this plate of awesomness.

Beef Koftas ($16)

Singapore Wine Mansion - Beef Koftas

This is their Beef Koftas with chickpea puree, garlic tomatoes and fried onion. Beef Koftas are usually served in skewers, but Wine Mansion decided to make it into a huge ball. It was pretty good, but I am a staunch advocate of firm balls. This ball was soft and loose, crumbling into a million minced meat pieces on your first bite.

(Do note that this was a tasting portion, the actual one has more than one balls)

After teasing your bellies with sweet lychee wine and some food, take a 5-6 minutes stroll to Praelum for your second stop - Praelum Wine Bistro.

Duxton Singapore - Praelum Wine Bistro

I'll admit it - I have never seen those wine dispenser before. It was such an interesting sight! I was so tempted to press these things to see how it works, but I controlled my inner child from doing it.

I did not manage to get a nice photo of the red wine, but you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO TRY THEIR "Bodegas Lealtanza Crianza 2011" (red wine). As a predominant white wine drinker, I was blown away by the aromatic smoky and cedar notes of this red wine. It did not have a single ounce of "siapness", and was so smooth to drink. It was so smooth, I thought friction did not exist on Earth.

I highly recommend that you try it.

Salmon-En-Croute ($32)

Praelum Wine Bistro - Salmon-En-Croute

Salmon loin, dill-tarragon butter, wholegrain mustard and puff pastry make up this pastry-pie-looking-thing. Buttery and flaky, this is a dish that will be well loved by almost everyone.

Tarte Flambée ($20)

If a pizza and a crepe had a baby, it would be this. Thin slices of bread dough with creme fraiche, onions, bacons and a sunny-side up that oozes its contents all over. I just felt that they should have added some cheese and a few other spices to jazz the flavours up a little.

Pork Parcels ($27)

Praelum Wine Bistro - Pork Parcels

Portobello, cream cheese, bacon, tomato-basil dressing and apple chutney make up this Pork Parcels and let me tell you this: THIS IS HEAVENLY. LIKE REALLY REALLY GOOD. 

Imagine biting into the firm portobello and have the bacon and cream cheese spill out in your mouth, quickly pleasuring your savoury senses. Then, the apple chutney rides into the scene with its sweet, fruity flavour, accompanied by the tomato and basil. It felt as if I just experienced a wonderful symphony.

I gave this a #5evilbeans on my Instagram. IT WAS SO DAMN GOOD.
