For couples who don’t want to go all crazy on champagne, caviar, and a lavish dinner, we’ve sussed out 10 dining options with up to 50% savings so you get to enjoy the sweet satisfaction of indulging your munchies anytime, all while doing your wallet a favour!

1. 63Celsius

Tucked away in a relatively quiet section in Paragon, among art galleries and high-end crystal boutiques, 63Celsius attracts loyal crowds for its mouthwatering fare and artisanal coffee.

The restaurant’s chic decor of copper and timber makes it stand out from the shops in Paragon. It is especially hard to miss the intricately designed wood ceiling which extends out of the eatery to connect to a bar in an open space outside.

Choose from their selection of almost-carnal indulgences: think Boneless American Black Angus Short Ribs, impossibly tender ribs served with piquant pico de gallo and fragrant with the complex spice mix of their house dry rub.

The pasta here is artisanal and they’re especially famous for their Lobster Pasta – half a lobster gracing a plate laden with a tangle of spaghetti, fresh San Marzano tomatoes, and garlic.

Pair all this with one of the wines in their comprehensive selection, then settle down to the only logical conclusion to the meal: a Chocolate Lava Tart, so blissfully self-explanatory.

2. Hoshino Coffee (Capitol Piazza)

Tucked away in a secluded area of Capitol Piazza’s Basement 2, Hoshino Coffee is a serene place to enjoy a meal with your date.

This popular Japanese establishment is famous for their desserts and hand-drip coffee, but what remains relatively unknown to most people is that they serve a variety of Japanese-style cafe grub at very affordable prices.

Featuring a hearty brunch menu, you can expect their signature Japanese-style souffle pancakes and fluffy “omu” omelette alongside different kinds of breakfast meats – bacon, smoked salmon, and even slices of angus steak.

Come lunch hour, the kitchen trots out an array of Japanese-Western favourites: think pastas, savoury cheese-studded souffles, and omu rice in numerous shapes and forms.

End your meal with Hoshino’s famous hand-dripped coffee which uses the highest quality Arabica coffee beans that were selected by Hoshino’s in-house coffee blend specialist Master Kanno for the perfect Japanese cafe experience.

El Mero Mero (which means ‘the go-to guy’ in Mexican lingo), will excite and delight diners with the very best in contemporary Mexican cuisine.

With an open-kitchen concept greeting diners looking to be seated indoors and a stunning terrace for those looking to soak in the sun, El Mero Mero’s got a little something for everyone.

They partnered with ComCrop, Singapore’s first rooftop garden, to grow fresh herbs and ingredients to use in their dishes. While this place isn’t your go-to to pig out and stuff yourself, the quality and execution of their small plates are pretty impressive.

4. Haru

Haru is the brainchild of two food-mad brothers who’ve turned the historic site of the Old Badminton Hall at Guillemard Road into a little shrine to the humble rice bowl.

Inspired by Japanese and Korean flavours, they serve up some of the best grain bowls in town! At lunch time, this is a build-your-own rice bowl situation. Take your pick of multigrain rice, pearl rice, or soba, and pair it with your choice of Japanese or Korean style toppings like Bulgogi Ribeye, Salmon dressed with miso and sake with hearty vegetables.

As for dinner, they’re known for serving Chazuke, a type of Japanese tea-rice. The multigrain mixture is made up of 8 different types of nutritious grains such as rice crispies, barley and Chinese almonds.

The signature here is their Lobster Chazuke, which features air-flown bamboo lobster that’s lightly poached in dashi and served atop rice with kombu, tobiko, bamboo shoots, spring onions, and nori. Other chazuke options include the Mangalica Pork Chashu and the Smoked Chicken.
