May this year, Zen and I went to Strangers with Candy to celebrate our 3.5 year anniversary. Intrigued by its name, it was a restaurant I’ve been saving for a special occasion. Brett greeted us and led us to a romantic candle lit table for two. The courtyard was deceptively warm and cosy. The service was awesome, and the food is well balanced with some exotic flavours.
I ordered the brulee expecting the mousse to be a side accompaniment, but the jaffa chocolate and fresh raspberries was a pleasant addition. Overall, a very funky dining experience.
