If I were to pick a favourite, SKAI Restaurant & Bar at Swissôtel The Stamford will be my choice of sky dining spot in Singapore. I have been here for brunch, press events and business lunches and had the privilege of celebrating a few special occasions here. The shimmering city skyline, impeccable service and excellent food were probably the reasons why this is one of the popular dining establishments in Singapore for birthdays and anniversaries.
We got a nice window seat that evening. It was a cloudy day in Singapore, so we couldn’t see the iconic sea view clearly even when we were on the 70th floor but the sky cleared off when the night falls and the lights and sparkles at Marina Bay were truly magical!
The bread basket consists of warm sourdough and SKAI’s signature mushroom butter. The luscious, fragrant and earthy butter was a great compliment to the freshly rolled bread! I would have stuffed myself with another serving of sourdough and this beautiful butter if we hadn’t ordered so many dishes for the night!
By the way, you can also get this butter at Fairmont At Home, the hotel’s very own curated premium grocery e-mall.
We ordered a few small plates as starters. Their Signature Crab Cake was the most popular dish among what we ordered that night. As I have a mild shellfish allergy, I only took a very small bite of the crabcake. I could taste the sweetness of the seafood from the cake. The crispiness from the fried dough skin and daikon, together with passion fruit and chilli added a nice and refreshing touch to the dish.
Rejoice, steak lovers! You’ll be pampered by the steak selections here at SKAI. They have sharing cuts, A4 Miyazaki Wagyu, A5 Saga Wagyu, and different cuts of Australian Wagyu to choose from. The beef comes with a perfect buttery texture and an aromatic char, I am sure you’ll find something you like here.
The dessert was a cheesecake tart topped with strawberries and a scoop of strawberry sorbet – it was a nice and balanced end to what was a great dinner.
The service at SKAI is always warm and welcoming. We were well taken care of that night, with great food, bubbly champagne, nice wine and great company, it was truly an enjoyable dinner!
