How to celebrate National Day the Singaporean way at home? Over good food and drinks, of course!
Food in Singapore is a binding force. It brings Singaporeans together the fastest way that no Racial Harmony Day activity ever could, it is an integral part of our identity. People from other countries may label us as a food-obsessed nation, but with so many different cuisines right at your doorsteps or perhaps just a few MRT stations away, it truly is a way of life here on this little red dot.
Although dining-out is restricted from 22 July till 18 August, there are plenty of takeaway and food delivery options to choose from! Let’s do our part to keep Covid-19 at bay and help support the local F&B scene by ordering takeaway and delivery.
