Corkage waived: BYO wines to Bonifacio restaurant on wednesdays

I like food outlets offering customers the option to bring their own wine; especially those which waive corkage fee .. (yes, which wine enthusiast wouldn't).

One such outlet is Bonifacio Restaurant at 35 Kreta Ayer Road, Singapore (Tel: 62226676). It is conveniently located within a short walking distance from Outram mrt station. It serves a wide range of pinoy cuisine from vegetables to seafood, meat and dessert dishes.

On wednesdays, customers are allowed to 'BYO wines' with corkage waived. The restaurant also offers diners decent sized wine glasses for their use. I usually go in a group consisting of 6 to 10 wine folks. This way we can order a wide variety of dishes and try pairing these with sparklies, whites, reds and sweet wines we bring along. Food pairing gets all the more interesting with the addition of spices and asian flavours.

Being a meat lover myself, I particularly enjoy the crispy deep-fried pork knuckle and lamb-shank dishes during my visits there. Do check the place out if you are around the corner.

Note to readers: It’s always good to give the establishment a ring and reconfirm its BYO policy before heading down; things in life have an impulse to change :)
