Dinner at BlissHouse Theme Restaurant at The Central

6 Eu Tong Sen Street, #03-21 Clarke Quay Central, Singapore 059817
Tel: 6225 5532

Having seen many dreamy photographs that my friends took in this themed restaurant, I decided to head over to have a look for myself. I was sufficiently dazzled, indeed.

Herein lies a charming love story of two lovers running away from persecution and into a Garden of Eden (which the restaurant is trying to simulate). Visit their website for the full story, so sweet and romantic - and the restaurant reflects exactly that. This could even make for a really lovely wedding photoshoot or celebration venue!.

Upon stepping in, we were greeted by friendly staff and the good service level persisted throughout the course of our meal. The menu here comprises mostly Western dishes, such as pasta, poultry and seafood, some with Asian twists.

The interior was breathtaking, like a fairyland literally. One could choose to sit by the windows if they wish. Carriages, swings, bridge, fountains and a table surrounded by big Teddies formed part of the beautiful decor, all sitting on faux grass carpeting. Candles lit up all the tables, giving it an almost enchanting quality.

Just so you know, inside the kitchen area (visible to us but probably out of bounds to step) lies a very huge faux fireplace in white as well, blazing with "flames", emanating visual warmth filled with beauty.

Chilli Crab Pasta (SGD$20.80) was robust in flavour -spicy tinged with sweetness, gravy thickened with the beaten egg. Pasta was relatively springy and soft shell crab portions were generous, tasty and crispy.

Sambal Snapper (SGD$20.80) was grilled and topped with sambal chilli, and served with vegetables on the side. Knifepoint slid through crackling skin and touched the snowy flesh which flaked off prettily, firm in texture. Sambal chilli could be more spicy in my opinion - I thought it tasted a little too sweet.

The only drawback was the unavailability of drinks (we were there on the Eve of a public holiday, and the restaurant wasn't very busy) - my Lychee Yogurt was not available so I ordered a pretty pot of Rose Tea (SGD$6.80), sitting on glass-and-candle holder.  *Anoushka wanted Almond Latte but that was not available as well so she settled for Ginger Ale.

Overall, we enjoyed ourselves at this quiet and stunning restaurant, befit for princesses. Yes, one does tend to feel blissful here. I would love to return, if only just for the cakes and more photos.
