More often that not, we would neglect our breakfast in the morning during weekdays because we need that extra few minutes in bed before preparing for work. Most of us simply grab a cuppa and go.
Therefore, having a nutritious and fulfilling lunch is very important to keep us going throughout the day. And where else better to go during lunch hour than the trendiest restaurants in town for their lunchtime set lunches?
These places are great for holding business lunch meetings with your clients, celebrating an occasion with your colleagues or even at times when you just feel like giving yourself a treat.
You will be spoilt for choice with these 11 Best Set Lunches in Singapore. Bon appétit!
We have never experienced dim sum the way we have at Mitzo Restaurant & Bar. The swanky, sleek and modern interior is a stark contrast to the traditional Chinese cuisine that is served here. To match the trendy interior, most of Mitzo’s classic dim sum dishes are elevated with stunning presentations and intricate plating, while still retaining the original flavour palette.
While we love their tantalising and luxurious dishes in their Weekend Brunch, we are stoked that we now have a new reason to pop by on weekday afternoon - Mitzo is launching the all-new value-for-money lunch sets on 12 October 2016. A 3-course meal goes for S$28++ per person, and a 4-course meal is S$38++ per person.
We had one of our best Japanese meals this year at Ginza Yoshihiro.
And this is one new Japanese restaurant in town that you definitely must know about. With over 30 years of history, Ginza Yoshihiro first started their family legacy at Ginza, Tokyo. Priding themselves on their signature specialty oden, the Japanese restaurant enjoys great popularity and is now spreading the love of Japanese food in Singapore.
Ginza Yoshihiro at Marina Mandarin Hotel is everything we want in an authentic Japanese restaurant, and if not, more. We dare say it is one of the best new Japanese restaurants in Singapore.
“Always tasty, always homemade. With love.”
That’s Little Diner for you.
The humble eatery that sits amidst the lush greenery of Bukit Timah, away from the humdrum of city life and stress – cosy and unpretentious. It is a no-frills place; just earnest comfort food in generous portions. Lunch, dinner, weekend brunch… whenever you need to please that tummy of yours, Little Diner will take care of that.
Nothing here costs an arm and a leg – most of the dishes on the menu are reasonably priced below S$20 – and all that we’ve sampled and had were delightfully yummy to say the least. Some classics are as good as gold, some creations took us by surprise and left us lingering for more. Little Diner has also just launched its new 2-course weekday set lunch at S$22.50++.
Today, we share 10 Must-Try Dishes at Little Diner and we urge you to drop by for a meal that you will not have regrets for.
Quite contrary to “popular beliefs”, ThaiExpress is not a fast food chain. It is a restaurant chain, yes, but its casual dining style is what makes the household brand so popular and affordable. With more than 20 outlets island-wide, ThaiExpress is the number one Thai casual dining chain restaurant in Singapore.
The chefs here take their Thai food very seriously, and the kitchen is kept busy all day through because every item that is served on the table is prepared in-house with fresh ingredients and homemade sauces – cooked to order in each kitchen daily.
Sticking true to the Thai culture and taste preferences, ThaiExpress offers an expansive menu of appetisers, soups, mains, one-dish meals and desserts. There is always something to eat and to satisfy every craving. You’d be happy to know that the price tags are superbly friendly, too; think home-style cooking in an air-conditioned and casual environment.
We will also be sharing the Sanook set lunches that are so value-for-money, they make just the perfect lunch option when you need something hearty. And of course, evergreen dishes that never go out of style, and the bestsellers of ThaiExpress.
mezza9 at Grand Hyatt Singapore has recently launched its new set lunches, and fans of the prized restaurant will be delighted to know that new options are aplenty, including a healthier four-course set menu consisting of just 600kcal. It is always lovely to dine at a familiar outlet, and even better when the chefs are always pushing their boundaries to introduce new creations to excite your palate.
On top of the introduction of new set lunches, mezza9 also wows its crowd once again with many new ala carte dishes, all of which are true to their philosophy of dishing out earnest cuisine with sustainable ingredients to please the soul.
For so many years, mezza9 has been a perennial favourite, and with this wave of new introductions, it gives us many more reasons to go back. Regulars will share our joy, but if you aren’t already a fan, here are some temptations:
Note: La Villa has closed and it is currently looking for a new location.
Everytime I eat at La Villa, I wonder why I don’t come here more often. Housed within the old school premises of River Valley Primary School, La Villa by the Senso Group is a charming Italian restaurant that not only has a nice interior, but also a beautiful al fresco dining area facing the garden.
Singapore has no shortage of good Italian restaurants, but La Villa might just be one of the better spots in town.
One of the French Restaurants that I’ve always wanted to try, but have not gotten the chance to visit until recently is Bistro Du Vin at Shaw Centre.
Bistro Du Vin by the Les Amis Group has been making a name for itself since opening in 2009. My friends have always raved about the classical French Food that they serve. I went there for lunch a while back and I have to say that the set lunch is absolutely a steal at $30++/pax.
