It was very difficult to decide WHERE to have our New Years Dinner in Singapore. We wanted to have authentic Singaporian food but in fact Singapore more or less have food from all over the world and do not have any special authentic cuisine..apart from some courses… So after been looking on TripAdvisor we found Incontro, an Italian restaurant ranked as number one in Singapore. I’m a big fan of Italian food so I was excited going there and before reserving a table me and my sister went there a couple of days before, to see how the restaurant looked like inside and we got to talk with one of the owners aswell. She was very nice, an Italian woman from Schweiz but had been living in Singapore for 10 years now. We got a good feeling about the restaurant so we made a reservation. On New Years Eve we went to Robertson Quay (next to Clarke Quay) to have our New Years Eve dinner at Incontro. The food was very good, BUT since I’ve had delicious food in Italy and in one of the best Italian restaurants in Paris (Oenosteria) I must say it was not even comparable. Italian food has to be made with Italian primary products to taste Italian..thats my opinion. And I guess it’s difficult to keep the freshness of primary products if they’ll be transported all the way to Singapore from Italy. But the food did taste very good and so did the heavenly desserts we had, tiramisu and moelleux au chocolat!
