We decide to have dinner at one of the restaurants on the beach just a short distance from our hotel in Singapore, the Rasa Sentosa, on Sentosa Island.
We went there once last trip and they totally won me over by making a Pizza that I actually liked… no, more than that, .. that I actually loved.
All we have to do is to walk past the hotel pool, thought the garden, past a small parking area and voila, we are on Siloso Beach.
Plus points for us are:
The Restaurant is about 5 minutes walk away so Himself can have a beer or a glass of wine with the meal, we don’t have far to lug the kids back when they are tired later, there is a kid play area on the sand just meters from our table, and the Pizza’s are great!
Winning combination? You bet!
It’s already quite late in the day as we head out… so the sun is starting to set, as in all places close to the equator, the sun sets very rapidly indeed, but of course the temperature stays around 33 C so no problems with being cold after dark here.
There is a main building that houses the kitchen, bar and a small seating area, and then a large tented/umbrella area outside where most of the diners sit. (Question: How big does an umbrella have to get before it’s considered a tent?)
Outside that there are a few more tables and then on the sand some children’s outdoor play furniture… a playhouse, slide etc.
Last trip we were here it was busier, and we sat as close to the play area as possible, the sky was blue and there were some scattered clouds around.
All of a sudden a dark cloud passed over and a short but torrential tropical cloudburst ensued, leaving us laughingly running for cover under the tent. So here’s a hint, if you ever get to visit her, watch out for small but threatening clouds, they rain down not cats and dogs, but swimming-pools of water.
Let’s have a look around…
