Dining Out Seven Days A Week In Singapore

You don’t have to break the bank to dine out seven days a week. Along with OCBC Cards, we show you how.

In juggling everything that we have on our piling plates — work, home, something remotely close to a social life — eating out has become essential. On any given week, you have plans for a night out with friends, a romantic dinner date and even that big family gathering over the weekend. But how you fit those plans into a penny-smart budget is a whole other ballgame, and here’s the winning play. Together with OCBC Cards, we’ve singled out seven restaurants, plus a deal at each, to help you along your busy week of dining out and doing it right by your bank account.

Monday: For the not-sad desk lunch

If you already have a million things to think about on Mondays, don’t let lunch be one of them. Consider The Soup Spoon and their healthy, hearty salads and soups for a feel-good work lunch that keeps you away from the desk for good reason. With a minimum spend of $20, you’ll even get a free regular Mushroom Soup ($8.10) to share with your lunch buddy.

Tuesday: For a fancy Oriental date night

Chinese food doesn’t always come to mind for date night, but with their elegant interior and stellar service, Peach Garden is well worth a spot on your list of places to impress your other half. OCBC’s 1-for-1 Five-Course Set Dinner ($68 onwards), which includes a BBQ trio combination platter and nourishing double-boiled seafood soup, is simply a bonus hack that comes with this date night option.

Wednesday: For a midweek #treatyourself


Put down that packet of instant noodles, and have the dinner you deserve. Whether it’s their umami-packed black pig ramen or the crunchy, juicy katsu, Tampopo’s irresistible Japanese dishes will keep your mood up until the next worthy meal of the week comes. If you’re worried about spending more than you should, rejoice in knowing you’re getting real value in the 1-for-1 Bluefin Chutoro Sashimi (worth $25) with every $50 spent.

Thursday: For comfort food with a friend

If there was one way to prove Penang Culture’s authenticity claim, it would be a bowl of their zesty, tongue-tingling Assam Laksa ($7.95). Make that two bowls with this 1-for-1 deal. After all, this is the kind of warm, simple comfort best enjoyed over catch-ups with a close friend!

Friday: For a team bonding lunch

You made it to the end of the work week — in fact, your entire team did. Go out for a celebratory lunch at The Manhattan FISH MARKET and bond over sharing satisfying seafood staples. Racking up $50 worth of seafood dishes is an easy feat when you’re in a big group, which means you’ll also score a deal for 1-for-1 Feeesh ‘N Cheese ($13.95), fish and chips loaded with belts of luscious cheese sauce.

Saturday: For a fun night out with the gang

Anyone can plan a group gathering. Not everyone has the foresight to book a spot at Bali Thai. Yes, we’re talking about the Thai-Indonesian restaurant replete with roomy seating and a menu of spice-laden Southeast Asian favourites. Be that friend who wins at making wise dinner decisions and order the pad thai, grilled meat skewers and the 1-for-1 Tom Yum Soup (worth $7.50), valid with a minimum spend of $40.

Sunday: For the occasional family feast

No Signboard Seafood - Copy

You don’t need a reason to treat your family to lunch over the weekend, but here’s one anyway: No SignBoard Seafood’s free Cereal Prawns (worth $28) with every crab purchased. Enjoy quality time with the fam as you peel buttery prawns and crack down on lip-smacking chilli crabs together.
