Henry Tan | 12:00 AM | |
Farquhar Mansion, opened last year, has set the fine dining bar high with its top-notch, exquisitely selected menu. This is a place for a jet set that has not forgotten that the dining place is an essential part of the social identity(learned from MBA subject =p).

Thankfully I was being invited by my friend to spend my Saturday night there with darling. It is such a great opportunity for us to be amused by the magnificent environment of Farquhar Mansion. Of course, I would definitely fully utilized this chance to take as many photos as I could and share it here! You would not know how awkward it is, as I was like a kampung boy that goes into the city(阿牛出城)! LOL!

We were astonished by the whimsical interior design, especially the wall and even the ceiling, which full of decorative paintings. In Farquhar Mansion, wherever you turn to, there will be something that would impress you. The lounge has been divided into open area and private room. As you would expect, the private rooms are only for the Royal members.

Farquhar Mansion - Lovely singer isn't she?
Lucky for us, they were performing all our favorite sentimental songs. I have to give compliment to The Mister Walker as the performers are really great! Not just one or two, but all of them are equally pleasurableFarquhar Mansion Lounge is very thoughtful as they set up the audio system all around the mansion and even in the toilet, just so that you would not miss the best part of it.

For total enjoyment, the house wine is a must to be fully indulged in the wonderland. We were served with Central Valley Cabernet Sauvignon by Santa Alicia, year 2013. This 14% vol. red wine is  rich of aroma and taste more towards to dry flavor.

To further enhanced our dining experience, Fried Onion Ring was served as Tapas to pair with the red wine. It is really crispy and tasty to go with the tartar sauce. Definitely goes well with the wine!

We thought that it was just another simple Creme Brûlée.

It really pulls off the nifty trick of not only cleverly remaining its original inspiration but actually bettering it by adding blueberries underneath. A fine layer of crystallized caramel crust on top, sealing the rich-creamy-smooth custard and a surprising-sourish blueberries which could tantalized your taste bud!

By then, I was so drunk that I even cheered with the Queen on the wall! Ops, I mean the Queen next to me! As the night goes by, I was getting drowsy and tipsy with blurred vision. LOL Gratefully, Farquhar Mansion does provides some sofa seating at the outdoor! As usual that they would remind you, don't drive drunk!

If the sophisticated fine dining at Farquhar Mansion is not reason enough to go, Lounge, located upstairs of the mansion, certainly is! Words can't describe how awesome it is and you just gotta find it out yourself!
