It’s officially the end of May!
Here at DiscoverSG, that means we get to look back on and celebrate all the exciting activities our ambassadors dropped in on this month.
This month’s highlights include plenty of amazing events and yummy eats!
Tras Street never fails to surprise with its string of hip, tasty food spots.
Its newest addition is Birders, a snazzy, modern yakitori bar, for all the Japanese soul food you could ask for.
It’s opened by our very own local celebrity, Adam Chen too!
They were treated to a wide selection of yummy yakitori, including the Thigh ($3.50), Breast ($3.50), Tail ($4), Sasami ($4.50), Oyster ($4.50), Tsukune ($4.50), and Skin (S$4).
Dawn’s absolute favourite was their Bourbon infused liver mousse. It was paired with yuzu marmalade for a sweet kick of flavour, and fried mantou for that extra crunch!
Diana loved the spring rolls, as well as the sweet matcha lava cake dessert.
We were also impressed by their selection of imported Sake that even came with a reference index of the drinks’ sweetness and acidity levels.
Where: 55 Tras Street Singapore 078994
Opening Hours: Mon – Thurs: 6pm – 12am; Fri – Sat: 6pm – 1am; Closed on Sunday

2. Sister Act
If there’s one thing we can’t pass up, it’s a good laugh.
That’s why we were elated to hear that Broadway’s Sister Act had arrived on our shores!
This comedy-musical features a wannabe diva who witnessed a murder, and who then had to be hidden in a convent for protection.
You can imagine the havoc that ensued thereafter.
They spent half the time howling with laughter, and the other half in tears over the touching scenes of friendship.
If you love broadway musicals, we hope you didn’t miss this one, which featured music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken!
Where: MasterCard Theatres At Marina Bay Sands, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore 018956
When: May 9 – May 20; 7.30pm – 10pm
Contact no.: 6688 8868
3. Moxie Fashion Show
Lovers of lace and all things pretty, a new boutique has opened up in town for you!
Moxie is the newest super sophisticated multi-label womenswear boutique at Mandarin Gallery.
They lived out every girl’s dream of sitting at the front row of a runway, watching models strut their stuff in some gorgeous, immaculate pieces.
What they loved most was that each of them could find an outfit that matched their personal style!
Diana’s favourites out of all the elegant pieces were the dainty, yet eye-catching lace tops, while Vanessa’s was the red off-shoulder lace dress.
Every label featured at Moxie is picked by hand, and every design is personally crafted.
We can’t wait to go back to do some proper shopping here!
Where: 333A Orchard Road, Mandarin Gallery, #03-23 Singapore 238897
Open: 11am – 9pm daily
There’s a new Hawaiian eatery in town, and it’s serving up the ever delicious and trendy poke bowls.
They quickly felt right at home amidst the “Aloha Spirit” of this comfy restaurant.
Take your pick from the selection of seafood (tuna, salmon, prawns) or tofu, choose a sauce, and watch them get tossed together on the spot!
Rachael’s favourite was the Salmon poke, paired with ginger soy dressing and brown rice.
And we attest to this–these poke bowls are as good as they sound.
The mashed potato with macaroni was a pleasant surprise, while the the coconut and coffee pudding dessert was the perfect sweet ending.
Where: 3 Everton Park #01-79 Singapore 080003
Opening Hours: Tue – Fri: 11.30am – 2.30pm, 5.30pm – 8:30pm; Sat: 11.30am – 8.30pm; Closed on Sundays

5. Bar Crawl
If you’re wondering what to do this Friday night, we’ve got a suggestion.
Bonappetour has a not-so-secret Bar Crawl that will bring you to hidden top bars on our island!
They discovered amazing bars they’ve never been to, like Tiger’s Milk, Native Bar and Operation Dagger!
They got to savour all kinds of unique cocktails, like Tiger Milk’s fruity strawberry-passionfruit cocktail, and Operation Dagger’s toffee apple cocktail.
What excited them the most though, was ANTZ, an exotic cocktail at Native Bar, which comes garnished with actual ants.
Sign up for the bar crawl! Who knows, it might just lead you to discover your new favourite Friday night hideout.
Secret Bars of Singapore
Where: Sssshhh, it’s a secret!
When: 1 June – 28 July; 7.30pm – 10.30pm

6. Baywatch Preview
We’ve been waiting on our toes for Baywatch to come out in Singapore, just so we can catch Zac Efron in action, in all his shirtless glory.
That’s why we were stoked to be invited to a preview of the movie!
They spent half the time laughing at all the sassy lines, and the other half bae-watching Zac Efron, we’re sure.
We think it’s safe to say this was one of the funniest movies they’ve seen this year.
Baywatch is now showing in theatres and we suggest you head out and catch it!
7. Sama Curry & Café
We’ve found a great new spot to get our curry fix, and it’s none other than Sama Curry & Café, a popular Hokkaido soup curry shop hailing from Japan!
First, they chose a type of Curry. There’s Marathon Chicken ($14.90), Oink Oink Hamburg ($16.90), Keema Natto ($16.90), Ocean Trophy ($18.90) and Vegetarian Bear ($13.90).
Next, they picked a level of spiciness from the cute categories of “Baby Bear”, “Adult Bear” and “Crazy Bear”.
Choose between 0 to 30 to make sure you get the exact level of spiciness you desire.
With Ramen-style broth as its base, Sama Curry mixes tomato, coconut or shrimp to turn it into a full bodied soup.
That’s what gives it its thicker texture and depth of flavour, compared to other Japanese curries. Yummm.
Sama Curry & Café
Where: OUE Downtown 2 Gallery, 6 Shenton Way #03-26 Singapore 068809
Opening Hours: 11.00am – 9.00pm
