Why head to the Yacht Club you may ask. Here's one reason why:
Say hello to the beautiful view!
Didn't that photo above made your heart skip a beat? Every angle was just so picture pretty that I must have taken more than a dozen shots that day. Aside from the view, we were there for the food. One thing we found out was while the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club (RSYC) is an exclusive member-only facility, the public can actually walk in and head to Bridge Bistro and Beacon Bar which is located at the 2nd level of the Yacht Club giving you this amazing view. Just tell the guard and the reception officers that you're heading to the restaurant and they'll let you in without any questions.
I was really impressed with the Japanese Hokkaido Scallop Salad. To be honest, I didn't thought much about it but what came were HUGE pieces of plump, fresh scallops sitting on a bed of chopped fresh tuna and cucumber salsa and drizzled with their homemade truffle dressing and topped with a generous amount of huge ebiko. We loved it! Luckily, one order comes with 6 pieces of scallops so we didn't had to fight for the last piece.
I got to admit that there's nothing extraordinary about the Calamari but sometimes, don't we just want something that we're familiar with? I love the crunchy squid rings which I happily dipped into the garlic aioli sauce. This is one tapas that you can definitely order and know for sure that it will never disappoint.
At this point, I was starting to feel very full already but we still got two more dishes to go! This is what you get for working out before a meal. Everything..and I really mean, e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g on the menu will start calling out to you.
