Ah Huat Cafe’s latest dish is a twist on a perennial local favourite —Crispy Chicken Cutlet Rice ($8.90). But they serve it with a fried egg and a side of sauce (choice of teriyaki, Thai chilli, mushroom or black pepper). The meal comes with a soft drink too.
Dine-in at HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok Clubhouse.

TASTES LIKE HOME
Show your love for Singapore by tucking into the nation’s iconic dish, Chilli Crab, at Warong Kim’s Seafood. Not a fan of spicy food? No problem. Warong Kim can cook your crustacean in nine other styles, from Salted Egg Crab to Steamed Crab. Don’t forget to order steaming-hot man tou to mop up all the sauce.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Enjoy a fusion meal inspired by the cuisines of east and west with The Co-op’s Seafood Laksa ($16.90). It’s a delectable mix of sautéed prawns and clams in a creamy laksa sauce topped with laksa leaves. Best enjoyed with the restaurant’s freshly-made fettuccine.

BACK TO TUCKSHOP
Relive your carefree primary school days with a tuckshop-inspired dinner at Old School Delights. All mains, from the Nasi Lemak Supreme ($10.90) to the Grilled Chicken Chop ($12.90), are sure to invoke memories of recess time. As you wait for your meals, roll up your sleeves and show your kids the games of yesteryear, like “country erasers” and “five stones”.

SWEET AND SAVOURY
Fried rice and bubble tea might just become your new favourite combo, especially if you’re having the Signature Truffle Fried Rice, by Cheval Chi Bao. For a limited period, enjoy it at a promotional price of $13 (U.P. $18). Wash down your meal with offerings from Cheval Cha, the eatery’s in-house bubble tea shop. Our favourite is the Gula Melaka Milk Tea ($3.90).

CURRY WITHOUT THE HURRY
There’s no better way to mark a long National Day weekend than with a lazy extended lunch. This year, make that lunch a spice-filled one at Muthu’s Curry, an institution in the local Indian food scene. You can’t go wrong with its signature Fish Head Curry ($24 – $33), but if you’re hankering for variety, try the equally rich Seafood Sizzler ($22), featuring
a spicy combo of fish, squid and prawns.
Dine-in at Muthu’s Curry (138 Race Course Road, #01-01, Singapore 218591), or order online at muthuscurry.com.
The humble popiah is a local favourite, attracting foodies with the comforting warmth of its turnip filling and crushed peanuts. Pó Restaurant further elevates these flavours with its fresh flower crab version ($52, serves two persons). Families will delight at the modern-Singaporean restaurant’s unique D-I-Y concept, where diners are invited to assemble their own popiah.
Dine-in at Pó Restaurant (Warehouse Hotel, 320 Havelock Rd, Singapore 169628), or order online at po.com.sg.
