Gone are the days when making a restaurant reservation requires more than a tap of your finger—and we have Chope to thank for that.
Every day, many Singaporeans (like us) make use of Chope’s seamless and hassle-free reservation system to secure a table at a restaurant because who always has so much time to spare to queue up for a table, right?
Join in the celebrations as Chope turns 7 this month and you know what that means—more savings at selected restaurants! Partnering Visa, Chope’s one-day flash sale starts on 21 June, 12 midnight and diners get to enjoy up to 50% off all day restaurant dining vouchers.
That’s right, with these massive savings you get to enjoy, there really is no better time to start planning for family meals, a gathering with your friends and romantic dinner dates!
Starting on 21 June 2018 at 12 midnight, Visa cardholders can purchase $50 vouchers at $25 and $100 vouchers at $70. Also, they can enjoy an extra perk—$3 off with the code ‘CHOPEVISA’ for their order on the Chope app. Do note that this is valid for one-time use only.
With that, let’s have a look at the 10 participating restaurants in the city where you can indulge in without feeling the pinch with Chope’s epic birthday flash sale.

You can also expect other delights such as the Eggs Benedict (S$20++) and Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter (S$19++). For classic American-style breakfast, you will not regret opting for the Farmer’s Plate (S$22++).

For those who are looking for more local-inspired flavours, there are also options such as Chilli Lobster (S$58++) and Lobster Noodle (S$58++).

Besides the flavourful Lobster Porridge, the Truffle Pork Chops (small – S$19.90++, big – S$34.90++) are to die for. The Kurobuta pork chops are tender and cooked just right and the accompanying truffle sauce is the cherry on top to give the dish a more dimensional flavour.
