Looking for great views & a family-friendly vibe? Try Ginja in the V&A Waterfront

A few weeks ago I was invited to enjoy a 2 course dinner over at Ginja in the V&A Waterfront. (Not to be confused with the old Ginja that used to be in town – the two are not related)

If you missed my previous Shio feature, you can read my full review over here (which also features some great venue shots).  This is purely an update because at the time, there were a few dishes that missed the mark, but other dishes that were really great, hence my desire to go back and […]
