For my birthday, we went to the top of Marina Bay Sands for dinner at Spago by Wolfgang Puck and it was lovely! We were also lucky enough to meet the Chef de Cuisine, Greg Bess, too!
It was fairly chill for a Thursday evening so we had the place to ourselves for part of the night. Even though the restaurant is next to the infamous MBS infinity pool, the restaurant is enclosed and the atmosphere is very quiet. Everything was delicious and fairly relaxed despite the high end restaurant. The service was catered to us completely and I even received a birthday card signed by the whole staff.
Our waiter, Catalin, gave us great recommendations. We started with the Tuna Tartare, a classic on the Spago menu for 35 years, which was as delicious as it was cute. “Kaya Toast” is a Singaporean toast with coconut jam, but at Spago, they top the toast with creamy foie gras. For our main course, we shared a Boeuf for Two (that actually weighed 1kg) served with the world’s cheesiest mashed potatoes.
For dessert, we had their famous salted caramel souffle served with tart apple sorbet. This dessert won best dessert in Singapore last year. Derek isn’t a big souffle fan, but even he thinks this award was well-deserved.
I would definitely recommend going to Spago if you’re up for fine dining. The atmosphere in the evening is very sweet and romantic and I would go for a special occasion. Any other time, I would probably try to go for the much more reasonably priced lunch prix fixe. Or perhaps you can hop over next door to the Spago lounge and enjoy drinks and a view of the infinity pool and the city.
