Make your Valentine’s Day spicy and saucy with a meal at Firangi Superstar. If you’ve never been to India, the restaurant gives you a nice little glimpse into the country’s heritage and history through its aesthetic decor.
Each room has its own theme mimicking the grandeur of India’s past when palaces and royal families used to be a thing. For example, the Elephant Palace has scalloped archways, and the Old Railway Room is designed like a train carriage complete with props such as suitcases.

Ironically, the Indian food presented here is anything but traditional. Instead, the chefs have put a modern spin on classic Indian dishes (from $14) as well as cocktails (from $20). One of the most popular dishes is the Prata Waffle ??? ($24) topped with Madras fried chicken.
The cocktails feature typical spices used in Indian cooking such as curry leaves, saffron and fenugreek. There’s even a chai-based one. More importantly, every single dish on the menu has a vegetarian alternative so herbivores aren’t left out.

This place is perfect for a date whose bio reads “adventurous”. As the name suggests, at NOX – Dine In The Dark you’ll be having your meal in pitch darkness. Not your typical diner, the restaurant is run by service staff that are visually impaired. In fact, the concept of eating in the dark is so that you get a taste of what they experience on a daily basis.
There’s no menu and it’s a mystery as to what you’re eating until the very end. First, you’ll get a chance to make guesses of what you think the dishes were. Thereafter, the staff will reveal the mystery with pictures and descriptions of your actual meal. It’s a true test of your other 4 senses.

If you’re up for this unique experience, you can book either the Prix Fixe Dinner mystery set at $88++/person or the V’day special 3-course menu at $168++/person.

Steak isn’t the first topping that comes to mind when you think of pizzas, but whoever came up with that combo is a damn genius. Blue Label’s fittingly-named Wish I Was A Baller ($42) pizza is peppered with tender slices of steak, mushrooms and onions drizzled with an indulgent bechamel sauce.
