Wine Connection Bistro HillV2 is one of the larger restaurants at this suburban mall along Hillview Road in the Bukit Timah area. It is more popular in the evenings when working folks in the area congregate for some food and wine. In the day time, it is relatively quiet. A couple of lunchtime set lunch menus make it more attractive to dine here in the afternoon. There is also the attached Wine Connection wine shop which certainly makes wine selection more interesting than browsing through a wine list.
HillV2 may be a small shopping mall in the Hillview area. But I like it because it is the only mall in this part of Upper Bukit Timah and most of its tenants are f & b outlets. It is a very quiet and serene place on weekdays which means better dining deals during such off-peak hours. Recently, I tried the weekday set lunch at Wine Connection HillV2.
iO Italian Osteria was one of the first restaurants that we visited when the new HillV2 mall opened in 2014. Our impressions were mostly favourable. You can see more pictures of the restaurant at our review here. Time has flown by and it has been nine months since our visit. The Hillier condominium units on top of the shopping mall look like they are nearing completion. The protective netting around the building was in the process of being peeled of and you can now see the naked building. We recently returned to the restaurant for a quick meal.
We bought some Indian food takeaway from Curry Gardenn at HillV2 the other day and popped into the nearby wine shop, the Wine Connection, to see what interesting wines they had to offer. Our query, “which wine to go with curry”, elicited several possibilities. In the end, we had to make a decision. There were a lot of reasonably priced wines recommended, all in their wooden crates, all looking very interesting. What do you do when confronted with so many choices, none of which you are familiar with?
BurgerUp Classix is one of the latest tenants to move into the newly opened HillV2 mall in the residential Hillview area. It occupies a good location at the mall on the street level with big frontage facing the road and the nearby condominium. We stopped by recently to try their classic burgers.
