A Friday night after work turned into a sweet and pleasant dinner review at Timbre, The Row
thanks to Bok for inviting me along to try out what Timbre has to offer. Of course to my delight and surprise to meet Chris & Christine from broughtup2share as well as Ivy that night. I have been following their blogs since even before I started blogging so it was a real pleasure to get to know them in person.

It was definitely an interesting blend of ingredients and the roasted duck breast was enjoyable. Of course having the crispy popiah skin to pick at while dining was a plus point.
Since we were feeling a little peckish, we ordered another pizza to share which was the
Your dining experience at Timbre wouldn't be complete without watching a live performance. So chill, relax and enjoy the live band performance by local talents. Just something to take note of is you might not be able to comfortably converse with your dining partners while they are performing because the music can get a bit too loud.
