When was the last time you saw a spittoon in service in Singapore? For us it was probably in the 70s hidden under a well-used marble-topped table in a traditional coffee shop. So it was a surprise to see this previously disgusting thing in full display outside The Guild Singapore. This new Keong Saik Road bar and restaurant is a collaboration by “Hong Kong’s highest rated and largest independent craft brewery”, Young Master Brewery and Chef Vinny Lauria.
Wildfire Burgers 313 Somerset is a cafe and bar with a tantalising offering of burgers from Triple Bacon Burger and Truffled Mushroom Burge to Westholme Wagyu Shabu Burger and Vegetarian “Pulled Pork” Burger. It has special deals from time to time. Currently, it has a 1-For-1 Weekday Promotion. From 12 noon to 6 pm on Monday to Friday, order 1 Shabu Shabu Burger and you get another one free and there is also 1-For-1 on all draught beer.
How long is the queue at Tsui Wah Clarke Quay, the new Singapore outlet of the famous Hong Kong tea restaurant or “cha charn teng”? We dislike long queues as much as we like to try new places. We had seen photos of the long queues on weekends and so we thought that it would be safe to visit Tsui Wah at an off-peak time – lunch on a weekday when Clarke Quay is usually quite deserted. But it seems that Tsui Wah has great appeal even on a weekday. There was a medium length queue of about 20 people. We decided to give it a miss and had lunch at Liang Court. We returned after lunch for a small bite and to recce the queue situation for future visits.
