McDonald’s Singapore Special Burgers

McDonald's Angry Bird Burger

McCafe Simei

The first McDonald’s restaurant was known as “McDonald’s Bar-B-Que”. Located in San Bernardino, California, it was set up by brothers Richard (Dick) and Maurice (Mac) McDonald in 1940. McDonald’s Bar-B-Que was (according to an article by Smithsonian Magazine) initially a roadside restaurant with “food delivered direct to the customer’s car via a fleet of attractive young women called carhops, so named because of their practice of jumping up on the auto’s running board to claim a patron as their own”. McDonald’s has come a long way since; and one of the major factors for its success is its ability to bring innovative products and services to meet the diverse and changing taste of its customers.

Singapore Poke Doke

Poke (pronounced as a two-syllable word; like the inverse of “kay-poh”) is a simple Hawaiian dish of raw fish salad which has been around for ages. It has recently become all the rage and Poke Doke Millenia Walk is one of the many new poke joints that have sprouted up in Singapore. Poke bowls must be hip when you can find them in Millenia Walk, a swanky mall which described itself as “a retail haven for the discerning shopper who appreciates inspirational lifestyle products, quality craftsmanship, bespoke offerings and gastronomic adventures“.

Provisions Dempsey Road – Skewers, Claypot with free coffee & snacks

New restaurant, Provisions Dempsey describes itself as follows: “Singapore’s first Skewers & Claypot Cocktail Bar. We serve comforting foods of South East Asia in provincial formats; in an earthen wear vessel and on a stick.” It is located in Block 7 which is right at the back of the Dempsey restaurant area. This part of Dempsey is nice and quiet as the road in front leads to a dead-end. The lush foliage made us feel like we were visiting a restaurant in Bali.
