At times, we often find ourselves belabouring over how expensive our meals are in Singapore. This is partly due to the high price point already tagged to our meals, but the scary figure on the bill is only exacerbated by the addition of GST and service charge.
Sure, we understand the necessity of including service charge into our bills and there does not go a day when we are not grateful for the high standards of service we receive during our meals. This goes without saying that when service is exemplary, paying that extra money for service charge is worthwhile.
But there are those days when we long for just a cheap, affordable meal. And what if we told you that there are dining establishments in Singapore which offers you the same meals but without the addition of service charge?
Here are 23 Places In Singapore With No Service Charge. Yes, that means money for more food! You are very welcome.
Castella cakes are extremely popular in Taiwan and the hype has recently been brought over to Singapore shores since the arrival of Le Castella and Ah Mah Homemade Cake. Taiwan’s Original Cake is the latest Castella cake shop to open in Singapore.
For those who have not been keeping up with this craze, Castella cakes are actually extremely soft and bouncy Japanese sponge cakes that are moist on the inside. These cakes are usually made from simple ingredients such as flour, eggs, sugar and starch syrup. Put the ingredients to bake and the result is one fluffy, jiggly Castella cake.
While the waiting time may sound totally absurd to some (be prepared to queue more than an hour), there are many who are willing to queue for hours just to have a taste of the sponge cakes. We braved the crowd and tried them personally in search for the best Castella cake in Singapore.
