The new Atout Restaurant has taken over from Au Petit Salut at Dempsey Hill, Singapore. The place looks roughly the same as what we remember APS to be. According to the statement on Au Petit Salut’s website announcing its closure after operating for two decades, the “… owner, Alice Low-Ang has decided to retire and will take a passive role partnering the iconic chef, Patrick Heuberger in a new restaurant, ATOUT (pronounced as Ah-Too).” It felt more casual, we missed the nice thick tablecloths when we were last at APS (read about our visit here).
“La Nonna” means grandmother in Italian and the restaurant serves traditional Italian country cuisine. On weekdays, La Nonna Holland Village along Lorong Mambong serves up some lunch specials. There was a choice of a $26 three course set lunch or the 1 for 1 deal. We stopped by to try the 1-for-1 lunch offer.
A happy hour that lasts the whole day makes it a happy day. The happy hour at Kanpai Izakaya lasts till 10.30pm everyday. Kanpai Izakaya is a new Japanese restaurant at Holland Village. They are at the Lorong Mambong stretch of shophouses. Holland Village has two personalities – sleepy in the day and upbeat at night. There are good reasons to visit Kanpai during off-peak hours and one good reason is the package of enticing promotions and discounts.
