What makes a restaurant romantic? When the question is so subjective, the answers are all relative. But whether you’re looking for a specific interior-feel or upscale cuisines, we would argue that the company you keep probably adds to the romance. Here are 9 halal restaurants to try, no matter the occasion: from anniversaries, birthdays, to date nights.
First popularised in Brazil (and later adopted in Portugal), the picanha is a cut of beef taken from the top of the rump. For those who speak the technical lexicon of steaks, picanha is an triangular in shape and surrounded with a thick fat cap – which brings an impressive cut that’s relatively affordable.
At this Muslim-owned restaurant, with the motto of ‘steaks for the people’, you can try the so-called Queen of Steak (200g) slathered with Binchotan butter for a smoky flavour at $21. But if you want to try the cut with a Japanese twist, opt for the Picanha Don ($16) that comes with 100g of Picanha Steak, fried garlic bits, pickled cabbage, caramelised onion – and of course, an onsen egg.
