This gorgeous shophouse along Ann Siang Road has the perfect setting for that special meal. Be sure to make reservations for a table, but try your luck to get a seat at the counter to watch the chefs at work. If not, dine at the beautifully-lit communal table downstairs, it is one that allows you to have an intimate conversation while enjoying the convivial ambience Lolla offers. Order a bottle of wine, and start with the humble Tomato Salad ($15); the uber fresh, plump, sweet tomatoes (they change seasonally) are dressed simply in olive oil, parsley, and olive soil. Then, move on to the mind-blowing Sea Urchin & Squid Ink Pudding ($22 for a half portion, good for 2 pax) — a velvety-smooth pudding topped with uni so fresh and creamy it transports you to the sea. If you have any fear of offal, this unbelievably tasty Beef Tripe ($23) might just change your mind. It is first braised to pack in flavour, then grilled over charcoal to provide crisp edges and a good hit of smokiness. End your meal with light-as-air Doughnuts with Lemon Curd ($12).
