Located at Hong Leong Building, just right opposite Lau Pat Sat, is situated in the middle of Singaporeโ€™s CBD, offering a variety of food and beverages from Japanese Tapas and bar snacks to beers on draughts and a fully stocked liquor collection. Truly a place to hangout for after work chill drinks.

To cater to the office lunch crowd, rolled out a new menu offering affordable premium lunch bowls. I tried the following from their lunch menu:

๐–๐š๐ ๐ฒ๐ฎ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐…๐จ๐ข๐ž ๐†๐ซ๐š๐ฌ
Tender wagyu beef drizzled with sweet sauce. Do add on foie gras because you wonโ€™t regret it!

๐๐š๐ซ๐š ๐Œ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐š๐ข๐ค๐จ ๐ƒ๐จ๐ง
Good portion of fresh cubed assorted sashimi on sushi rice, served with torched mentaiko dressing.

Elevate your lunch bowls by topping up $6.50 for a ๐™‹๐™ง๐™š๐™ข๐™ž๐™ช๐™ข ๐™๐™ฅ๐™œ๐™ง๐™–๐™™๐™š, which entitles you to an extra side of ๐’๐š๐ฅ๐ฆ๐จ๐ง ๐“๐ซ๐ฎ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ž ๐“๐š๐ญ๐š๐ค๐ข or ๐’๐œ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ๐จ๐ฉ ๐Œ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐š๐ข๐ค๐จ ๐€๐›๐ฎ๐ซ๐ข and a drink.

As we are slowly getting back to the office work grind, do check out for delightful lunch bowls!

Located at Duxton Hill is a restaurant that prawn-mise to be wild and provide a refreshing Asian-Fusion dining experience by serving an array of prawny dishes from starters to mains, and perhaps to cocktails in the future. Like itโ€™s name suggests, @prawnnoodlebar , majority of their menu uses prawn as a key ingredient and they infused modernity into our favourite local prawn delights.

Their signature ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง ๐๐จ๐จ๐๐ฅ๐ž ($16) is a little different from the prawn noodles that we are used to. The ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง ๐๐จ๐จ๐๐ฅ๐ž ๐ƒ๐ซ๐ฒ was served with a hearty bowl of Japanese ramen and paired with lightly grilled tiger prawns and rolled pork belly. The infusion of Japanese elements into our local prawn noodle dish is just so brilliantly executed that youโ€™d appreciate the elevated elements while still enjoying a hearty bowl of our favourite prawn noodle. Its accompanying serving of prawn broth deserves a special mention of its own๐ŸŒŸ! The unassuming bowl of soup was surprisingly packed full of sweet prawn umami-ness! After 3 long days of simmering, itโ€™s no wonder the soup packs such bold and complex flavors!

How can we forget about Hokkien Mee when weโ€™re talking about prawns and noodles! Another interesting twist, the ๐–๐จ๐ค ๐…๐ซ๐ข๐ž๐ ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง ๐๐จ๐จ๐๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ ($15) was served with linguine and topped with grilled prawns and squid. Putting the fascination aside, I personally feel the linguine werenโ€™t able to absorb the flavors of wok-hei and broth, which are key factors of a good plate of Hokkien Mee. But Iโ€™ve got to say, their chilli is so good that it elevates the dish with a punch๐Ÿ”ฅ!

Marinated with prawn paste, their ๐‡๐š๐ซ ๐‚๐ก๐ž๐จ๐ง๐  ๐†๐š๐ข ($12) was served boneless with crisp skin and boast a juicy, tender and succulent centre. It was lip-smacking good๐Ÿ’‹to dip them into the accompanying sweet-sour peanut sauce. Other sides/bar bites include ๐‚๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ๐ง๐ข๐š ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง๐ฌ and ๐๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐ง ๐“๐š๐œ๐จ๐ฌ.

@prawnnoodlebar has definitely raised the standards of our humble hawker fare into a showcase of extravagance that can be eaten with a glass of cocktail. Head over and tantalise your taste buds with their uniquely @prawnnoodlebar elevated dishes now!

Where are you headed to this evening for your TGIF tipples? I recently made a visit to @theoldman_sg for my TGIF tipples ๐Ÿฅ‚ and am amazed by the comfortable atmosphere there.

Tucked away in the heart of Singaporeโ€™s buzzing Keong Saik Road, @theoldman_sg is solely signalled by a single lamp thatโ€™s super easy to miss. There is no flashy signboard and tbh, Iโ€™d have totally missed it if I didnโ€™t know that they were located beside @oliviarestaurant_sg . But itโ€™s this discreet entrance that makes you grow in anticipation and curiosity to find out what lies beyond the white wooden doors.

Currently ranked 58 on World's 50 Best Bars list, this intimate speakeasy serves innovative cocktails with attentive hospitality. We had ๐“๐จ ๐‡๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐š๐ง๐ ๐‡๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐๐จ๐ญ from their menu as well as a ๐ ๐ข๐ง-๐›๐š๐ฌ๐ž๐ ๐จ๐ฉ๐ž๐ง ๐œ๐จ๐œ๐ค๐ญ๐š๐ข๐ฅ. ๐“๐จ ๐‡๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐š๐ง๐ ๐‡๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐๐จ๐ญ consists of ๐™—๐™ก๐™–๐™˜๐™ ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™š๐™™ ๐™ค๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™ฅ๐™ฅ๐™ก๐™š๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ง๐™ช๐™ข, ๐™ง๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™›๐™ž๐™š๐™™ ๐™˜๐™ค๐™˜๐™–-๐™˜๐™ค๐™ก๐™– & ๐™ซ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก๐™– ๐™ก๐™–๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง, which creates an appetising tart-like aftertaste that sets the mood for a long evening of cocktails to come.

This stylish, intimate, Ernest Hemingwayโ€“inspired bar has a built-in cooling strip that runs down the middle of the I-shaped bar counter to keep your drinks cold while you chat away with your friends and the bartenders. The walls are lined with bookshelves that also serve as standing tables.

Overall, the bar gives off a homely and comfy living room vibes that makes you wanna stay to chill and never want to walk away from. The comfortable atmosphere and convivial vibes adds to the draw of @theoldman_sg , as you can easily spend a TGIF night here with your friends over quality cocktails!

I was pretty excited to pay @nosleepclubsg a visit as theyโ€™d received the Campari One To Watch Award 2020 from the organisers of Asiaโ€™s 50 Best Bars.

I ordered a ๐‡๐š๐ฒ & ๐€๐ฉ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ, which is a highball made of scotch whisky sous vide with toasted hay and served with fermented apple chamomile honey. This drink is smoky and sweet, with a hint of earthiness from the toasted hay. What I enjoy about this drink is that itโ€™s not too sweet, and itโ€™s boozy but doesn't hit you as hard as some whisky-based drinks do. Super easy and enjoyable to drink!

The cosy interior makes @nosleepclubsg perfect for good conversations over some tasty interesting tipples๐Ÿฅ‚!

Who doesnโ€™t fancy a nice cocktail paired with a lovely ambience? Nothing beats a fancy-schmancy chill night out with good company!

Ranked 11th best bar in Asia by Asia's 50 Best Bars 2017, I was really excited to try out @tipplingclub . Aside from their specially curated list of cocktails, you can customize your own cocktail! The waiter was really friendly and recommended us cocktails after taking into account of our preferences.

As I requested for something sweet and fruity, he got me a ๐‚๐ฅ๐จ๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ ๐‚๐ฅ๐ฎ๐›, which consists of Ki No Bi Gin, lemon juice, raspberry syrup and egg white. This refreshing cocktail is subtly sweet, consistently tart and has a delicious foamy head from the egg white.

Located at Tanjong Pagar, @tipplingclub is definitely a suitable place for after work wind-down chill drinks on Friday nights and over the weekends๐Ÿฅ‚!
