I was thinking of finding a unique place to celebrate my dear’s birthday. I wanted to find a place that’s away from town; somewhere we can enjoy a quiet romantic dinner. Well, I came across this restaurant’s website and was attracted by its ambience and rustic setting. It seems like an ideal place for a romantic dinner back to nature.

Situated on Rochester Park, North Border offers a relaxing alfresco dining area, lush with tall trees. It feels as if we’re off in a private garden somewhere… They serve authentic American food, which comes in generous American-sized servings too.

Browsing through the numerous items on the menu, we settled for “North Border’s surf & Turf” ($35.90) and “Char Broiled Black Cod Fillet” ($29.90), paired with Cherry Blossom & Sweet bananas smoothies ($7 each). The 1st entrée has a cut of tenderloin steak cooked in creamy wild mushroom sauce and served with three king prawns grilled and battered. The sauces they use really bring out the taste of the steak & prawns, great combi!

The 2nd entrée consists of fresh black cod fillet seasoned in Southwest spices. I highly recommend this as you can really taste the fresh & sweet flesh, seasoned to perfection. Yummy!

For dessert, we ordered the Baileys ice cream ($4.50). It is made from Baileys Irish Cream. Special flavor that gives the dinner a sweet ending J

A short climb up the gentle gradient of Rochester Park promises good food with a laidback ambience to dine in. In addition, generous portions served prove North Border’s menu to be sufficient in quality as well as quantity. Another good pt about the place is its close proximity to Buona Vista MRT. However, I find the price to be rather expensive, so only visit this place if you’re feeling rich or trying your best to please your special someone!

P.S. Found this uniquely designed fountain hidden at a corner
