Sweet Valentines @ Social by Heinz Beck

You know those times when you dine out with your other half, and both of you are so overwhelmed by everything – the service, the setting, the food, you rave about it to your friends for the next few weeks until they get so sick about it?

Yeah, that’s Social by Heinz Beck for you 😉

The part that we were most impressed with, was timing. G was due to fly out that evening, which meant that we had to be finished by 9pm. Wasn’t ideal, but they made do.

We looked at our watch when we finished our dessert, it was 8:58pm. Amazing.

Short and sweet, as Valentines should be, here’s a lil photo post as a token of appreciation to Waldorf, for completing our weekend with a 6-course degustation, each perfectly manicured to perfection. Kinda makes me feel like I should put more love into making food. Aww 🙂

Starters, from the chef
And another 😉 I was half full by then !
Tartar of scampi with papaya and cucumber
Scallops on pea purée with artichokes and mint oil
Fine herbs risotto with marinated calamari
Black cod glassed with tomato coulis, cannellini beans and black cod snow. So silky, so delicious
Ultimate Summer Colour Trends Sale
Tiramisu. Delicious. So pretty I felt like like little fairies were gonna hop out of the dessert and start dancing.


And just when you thought it was all over, a selection of ‘after-dessert’ desserts, from the chef


Special thanks to the staff who took care of us that night. Didn’t get your name, but you were due to fly home to Rome the next morning, so you know who you are. We hope to see you again when we return next.

Recommend you take wifey there for a special occasion 😉 Or send this post to your partner/boyfriend/husband as a hint hint. Hee hee hee.

Hope you all had a great weekend with your loved ones!

One thought on “Sweet Valentines @ Social by Heinz Beck

  1. I’ve heard a lot of nice things about all the restaurants out there (at WA, The Palm), but it’s soooo far from here. Or well, it’s not. I think it’s the mental thing about having to go all the way to an ISLAND to dine that makes me a very unfrequent Palm visitor:) Happy Valentine’s…a little late.
