SINGAPORE – The National Day Parade may have been postponed, dining in banned and social gatherings curtailed, but do not let these restrictions dampen your mood for Singapore’s 56th birthday.
Food and beverage (F&B) businesses are rolling out takeaway and delivery deals, with many coming up with creations specially for National Day.
And what better way to show your patriotism than to support the country’s F&B operators.
The Straits Times checks out eight National Day-inspired items.
1. Singaporean breakfast cheesecake
Robust flavours of locally sourced Nanyang coffee powder are infused into the smooth cream cheese of the Singaporean Breakfast cheesecake ($6.90 a slice, $52.90 for a whole cake) by halal-certified cheesecake specialist Cat & the Fiddle.
The cake has a soft vanilla sponge base, in contrast to the bold top layer of slightly tangy cream cheese – black from the addition of charcoal powder. Pair it with a cup of kopi.
Until Aug 9, you can get 25 per cent off the whole cake, or a bundle ($27.90) comprising three slices of Singaporean Breakfast Cheesecake and three slices of Paws of Fury (a yuan yang Arabica coffee and Hong Kong-style milk tea cheesecake). Both promotions are available online and in stores.
Where: Cat & the Fiddle outlets, including 01-18 Westgate, 3 Gateway Drive; 02-08 Bukit Panjang Plaza, 1 Jelebu Road; and 02-32A Junction 8, 9 Bishan Place, open: 11am to 8pm daily
