Peach Garden Restaurant – Good Chinese food at 60% discount!

You know the Great Singapore Sale that happens every year during June and July, where lots of retail shops offer discounts to reel in shoppers? Well it’s happening now for the F&B sector thanks to the COVID-19 situation. Although the crowds have increased somewhat during the weekend, restaurants are still seeing low footfall on weekdays, in part due to the many work-at-home directives currently ongoing.

Peach Garden at Changi Airport T2 - Tofu with Broccoli

If you are not afraid to dine out, you can enjoy some great deals out there. One of the fantastic deals I enjoyed a couple of days ago was 50% discount on any ala-carte food orders at Peach Garden. They have outlets at Changi Airport T2, Chinatown Point, Hotel Miramar, NTU, OCBC Centre, The Metropolis and Thomson Plaza. We decided to go to Changi Airport due to proximity as well as Changi Airport’s own free 3 hour parking promotion for anyone who spends a minimum of $10. This free parking promo at Changi Airport is a real incentive to visit because parking is notoriously expensive at Changi Airport, although I cannot fathom why given they are always doing promos to entice Singaporeans to venture to the far east.

Peach Garden always has some sort of promotion going on, so it would be best to check their website to see what deals you can enjoy. For example, you can order their Signature Stewed Baby Lobster with Ee-fu Noodles for only $1.80++ (U.P $38) or get 30% off for dim sum on weekdays during lunch time. But, if you are able to dine at slightly off-peak timings, you can enjoy even higher discounts of 50% to 60%! This is only if you have the Eatigo App, which is completely free to download. Use my referral code http://refer.eatigo.com/365days-1v9 (365days) to download and you and I both can enjoy a $10 voucher each. Make sure you see that the referral code has been applied, or it means its not successful and you won’t get your voucher.

Botan Japanese Restaurant – Good quality affordable Japanese food near Raffles Place

I had not heard of Botan Japanese Restaurant so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my dining companion had not only heard of it, but had actually dined at Botan several times over the last few years. Botan Japanese Restaurant is the type of understated Japanese restaurant that those in the know would have heard about.

It’s homely decor may not attract eyeballs immediately. It seems to be hidden in plain view because despite its central location within Far East Square, I’d actually walked past it without realising, probably distracted by all the banker types sitting al-fresco nearby and chugging down bottles during lunch time. But, they boast a loyal following because of their quality ingredients flown in from Japan, as well as their value-for-money pricing.

Botan Japanese Restaurant Compilation

Executive Chef, Thomas Kok, a pioneer of the Japanese culinary scene in Singapore with over four decades of experience has taken over the helm of the restaurant. He was already working at Japanese restaurants back in the day where Singaporeans were more accustomed to cooked, hot food rather than foreign things like raw fish. Apparently, many dishes now easily found in Singapore were creations of or championed by Chef Thomas and his team decades ago. Take for example the Pitan Tofu, a proud creation of Chef Thomas, now easily available in many Japanese Restaurants in Singapore.

The price-range at Botan is quite varied. Depending on your budget, you can have a perfectly satisfying meal for under $20, or you can splurge on some of the more luxurious dishes. Here are some of my recommendations.

Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner–Restaurant quality food at cafe pricing plus those must-try sourdough waffles!

[Media Invite]

When you think “cafe” these days, what do you think of? Food quality doesn’t really come to mind. Sure they may have a couple or two star dishes, but more likely than not, the entire premise of that cafe is built upon being Instagrammable. Visit once or twice, and you’ve basically covered their entire menu of dishes worth eating. So it is a breath of fresh air, what Tiong Bahru Bakery has done to its Funan and Raffles City outlets.

Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner

These two outlets are now known as Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner, and offer a “slow food” approach, which is most unexpected coming from a chain F&B establishment. Whatever you thought you knew about Tiong Bahru Bakery, Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner is so much more.

Restaurant JAG– Let this Michelin-starred restaurant surprise you

I recently had the privilege to try out the Restaurant JAG, which is helmed by Jeremy Gillon, located along Duxton Road. Since opening its doors on October 2018, it has within that short span of time managed to snag an impressive number of awards including T Top 20 2019/2020 Singapore Tatler Wine & Dine Singapore’s Top Restaurants 2019/2020 and most notably a One Michelin Star in 2019.
Restaurant Jag
At Restaurant JAG, more than 40 naturally foraged in the wild herbs from the Savoie region of France are the highlight of the menu. They have pride of place along the kitchen wall where they are never out of sight from the chefs. These herbs feature in every single dish, but in a creative and beautiful way. A limited ala-carte menu is available, however diners are encouraged to opt for Chef’s omakase menu, which will feature the freshest seasonal ingredients in dishes specially designed to highlight the distinctive trait of used herbs. Should you have any dietary restrictions, there is no need to inform days in advance, it can be done upon arrival, thanks to the cooking techniques employed and the way the menu is curated.
