Our winners and their dining companions were treated to a wonderful meal at Royale at Hotel Mercure Singapore Bugis. The night was still young as we were ushered into the gorgeous restaurant that was decked out in plush leather seats and marbled tiled floors.

We started off the evening with appetisers that included pan seared foie gras and cheesy baked escargot. Guests were surprised with four main courses, with the oven-baked spring chicken and braised lamb shank served atop truffle mashed potato as the favourites. Executive chef of Royale, Nicholas Sia, gave a short introduction before each dish. The desserts capped off our decadent meal, with many well-received votes going to the Alaskan flambe, which featured creamy coconut ice cream encased in a sweet meringue. The night concluded with many satisfied bellies all around. Cheers to Royale at Hotel Mercure Singapore Bugis for making us feel like royalty that evening.
