In essence, few things are more romantic than a scenic stroll accompanied by your loved one along the river, dotted by lights and soft cheers coming from nearby establishments. Located along Boat Quay, The Sampan, celebrates romance this February with an exclusive three- course menu from now till Friday, 15th of February. Where most celebratory menus are made for one, The Sampan offers a “His” and “Hers” Valentine’s Day selection, bearing in mind that these days, it’s not necessarily the guy that’s the heartier eater.

For an Asian twist on Valentine’s Day, indulge in a menu crafted to include Truffle Chicken Spring Rolls, Double-boiled Abalone Soup, Lemongrass baked Pork Ribs, and Steamed Lobsters with miso, and the like. While this occasion is surely a Western invention, there are some of us who just can’t do without that very Asian bowl of rice during mealtime. Throw in a pre-dinner cocktail, aptly named Bed of Roses, and voila~ After all, who would say no to roses on Valentine’s, right?

For the unconventional couple, here’s a chance to pay it forward this Valentine’s Day with EGBOK and Spoons as they come together to showcase Cambodia’s authentic and piquant cuisine. For 2 days only, during 14 and 15 February, Spoons chefs Sun Sam Oath and Heng Vicheka will marry the flavours of the Cambodian countryside and traditional street food to present a romantic 6-course Valentine’s Day set dinner menu that features some of Spoon’s biggest hits created with the featured Cambodian produce on retail.
Think Kor Ko Soup – a traditional Cambodian stirring stew with toasted IBIS rice and Sovannak palm sugar; or Pan Seared Duck Breast glazed in a La Plantation Kampot peppercorn orange sauce, and give your special someone the gift of giving back with 15% of the proceeds from both evenings returning to EGBOK, which in turn affords more underprivileged young adults in Cambodia the opportunity to succeed in the hospitality industry.
Likewise, local boutique florist Beverly’s Blooms gets in on the spirit of giving by teaming up with SPRMRKT to not only complete each meal with their signature handcrafted bag-quets (bagged bouquets), but also pledge a portion of their proceeds back to EGBOK.
Making your bookings through Chope will also afford you a chance to win fantastic prizes, including a two-night stay at a four-star luxury boutique hotel in Siem Reap.

The Sampan, located on the iconic Boat Quay, right along the Singapore River is celebrating romance this February with an exclusive three- course contrasting menu. From now till Friday, 15th of February, couples are invited to take in the stunning views of Singapore River and indulge in a thoughtfully curated “His” and “Hers” Valentine’s Day selection.
Typically, it is said that men love meat more and the women should be served a lighter protein. But at The Sampan, the kitchen is not making this assumption. Couples are invited to take their culinary journey together to explore, learn, share and appreciate each other’s preferred tastes and flavours.
For starters, the Head Chef has that laid out the Coquilles Saint-Jacques or juicy pan- fried Scallops on Praew Pesto (Asian Pesto) served with Pumpkin Croquettes or Bone Marrow & Red Chimichurri, a buttery rich bone marrow gratin spiced with bold homemade smoky red Chimichurri cooked to perfection and served with spiced flat bread.
Couples are then given the choice of their mains. Either the Asian Flavored Fish En Papillote or fragrant baked red snapper infused with fresh ginger, coriander served with roasted seasonal veg topped with sizzling Asian salsa or a juicy 300gm Asian Spiced Ribeye Steak, glazed with piquant homemade Sambal Ijo with a side of roasted sweet potatoes and silky cauliflower puree – couples can take their pick from two incredible main courses.
For the final course, the kitchen recommends a shared dessert, symbolising two distinct individuals coming together as one to celebrate their unison and love. Sujeonggwa Poached Pear with White Miso Caramel and Green Tea Ice Cream Poached Pear on Cajanus Crumble – both served with White Miso Caramel & Green Tea Ice Cream nestled on Black Bean Pesto dusted with toasted panko.

Made with premium Danish butter Lurpak and boasting a filling of delectable pineapple paste, these pig-shaped pineapple cookies not only look cute, they smell splendid and taste delicious too! Not to worry, the faint pink dough gets it rose-pink colour from beetroot. Pretty yet natural!
The techniques used to bake the cookies are similar to that of baking Ah Mah’s signature castella cakes — no baking soda, preservatives or artificial flavouring is used. Perfect as a thoughtful gift for friends and loved ones!
Chinese New Year is all about “Ong Lai” – prosperity is arriving – and auspicious pineapple goodies are well-loved by many. With this thought in mind, Ah Mah Homemade Cake has specially created an Ah Mah Pineapple Cake ($12) for festive celebrations this Chinese New Year! Fresh pineapple puree is mixed consistently into the Original Cake base before baking, giving the cake its zesty taste and pleasant aroma. Slice open the stunning cake and be amazed by its charming yellow centre – bursting with tasty dried pineapples. Topped with slices of sweet fresh juicy pineapples, this super moist pineapple cake is a tropical dream come true! Serve it plain or with a dollop of fresh whipped cream for some extra oomph!
If you have had enough of pineapples, Ah Mah Homemade Cake got you covered with their brand-new Prosperity Crackers 福气饼 ($11.80) and Fortune Crackers 好运饼 ($13.80)! The former is an extremely nutty snack, boasting sunflower seeds, melon seeds, almonds and roasted sesame seeds while the latter is Ah Mah’s rendition of the traditional savoury-sweet wafer-thin chicken biscuit sprinkled over with plenty of black and white sesame seeds! We warn you, both are dangerously addictive!
Ah Mah Pineapple Cake and Ong Lai Pineapple Cookies will be available at all Ah Mah Homemade Cake outlets from now to mid of February 2019 while the crackers are available at all outlets except for Paya Lebar and City Square Mall.
