Singapore Restaurant Week is back again. From 24 October to 1 November, you'll get to dine on three-course menus — priced at $25++ and $35++ per person for lunch and dinner respectively — at some of Singapore's top restaurants. This time around, diners aren't the only ones who benefit from the deals at Restaurant Week. Participating restaurants will donate $2 from each bill until $100,000 is raised for The Food Bank Singapore. The local charity collects surplus food in the market and provides it to soup kitchens and people who are in need of sustenance. While gluttony might be one of the seven deadly sins, you can take comfort that you're pretty much dining for a good cause. So go ahead and indulge.
If previous Restaurant Week experiences have left you disappointed, you probably booked yourself into outlets that just didn't cut the mustard. With more than 100 restaurants participating in this edition of Singapore Restaurant Week, it can be hard to figure out where you should ration your calories. Here, we've shortlisted the restaurants we've dined at and have given our stamp of approval for.
