Sipping a fragrant cuppa on a slow afternoon and nibbling on small bites over light banter is how we picture a perfect afternoon tea to be like. Yet pampering yourself like that usually involves a splurge and we hear your woes.

Here is a list of 10 affordable afternoon tea places in Singapore for under S$25 per person that you can take yourself and your friends to.
You are kind of a big dill to us so thanks for pudding up with that. We hope you understand the food puns that we want to share.

We also cooked them up with cuteness to feed your hunger for mirth. We think you shrimply deserve the best so lettuce begin to try to ease off your stress.
Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar begins welcoming in the crowd from 03 May to 05 June 2019.
Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar 2018 was widely criticised for offering mostly hipster food rather than traditional Malay snacks that are usually found at the annual Ramadan event. The organiser has taken the feedback and 60 per cent of food stalls at Geylang Serai Bazaar this year will be offering traditional Malay food, while the remaining may offer “contemporary” or “hipster” options.
In addition, the stalls at the bazaar are also required to be either Muslim-owned, certified halal by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) or fulfill a halal criteria set by consultants engaged by the bazaar organisers.
Prepare lots of change and tissues but before you head down, read on to know what to expect. In the labyrinth of the bazaar, here are some foods you deserve for braving the heat and jostling crowd at Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar 2019.
At buffets, some of us lose all self-control and rationality as we devour way more food than what our bellies usually can take. The array of choices is a gastronomical galore for the glutton in us.
Quality of food aside, what’s as essential to such feasts is the company we are with. They say people who eat together, stay together, but eating in a group can be tricky sometimes with different palates and needs.
Katong Kitchen is an inclusive location for communal dining with family, friends, and colleagues. They are halal-certified with a buffet line-up that they expanded to feature familiar Malay, Indian, Chinese, and Eurasian dishes in addition to their Peranakan cuisine. Like their theme, it’s where the ‘Flavours of Singapore’ meet. There’s a selection of fresh seafood on ice, DIY dishes, as well as a hot plate and a noodle station where you can request for food that’s made-to-order.
This is definitely one place that will please one and all. If you haven’t been, here’s everything to love about Katong Kitchen.
Our readers can quote “ladyironchef” upon making reservations to enjoy 15% off Katong Kitchen’s lunch and dinner buffet from now until 30 June 2019.

You’ve got your luggage packed for your staycation and you’re ready for that well-deserved break. Trouble is, you’ve got to drop your fur-kid off with a dog sitter or at a pet hotel while you’re away.
Sometimes, that means more than just a hassle to the start of your holiday. There’s separation anxiety and that nagging worry about whether the doggo’s getting as good a treatment as you would give.
To help, here’s our list of dog-friendly hotels so your little BFF can join you for breakfast-in-bed and get a getaway too. Go ahead. It’s time to pamper yourself with your furry friend by your side.
Don & Tori is a modern Japanese restaurant that sets the bar pretty high for dons, makis, and yakimono (grilled or pan-fried) items as long as you’re not a purist. It’s a serene enclave in the Central Business District that joins the heavyweights on Tras Street.
A quiet lunch crowd trickled in when they opened soon after noon into the comfortable fusion vibes of old meets new, East meets West.
Their live sushi bar will entertain you as you watch your orders being assembled and made. There’s almost something for everyone, vegetarians and non. It’s hard to say which dishes make up the highlights of this place because every one we tried were show stoppers in terms of both presentation and taste.
The Shilin-inspired Night Market opens to the public for two weekends (from 19 to 21 April & 26 to 28 April 2019) at [email protected], Singapore Turf Club.
This Taiwanese-themed street festival is held at a 200 000 ft² space with over 300 stalls and different vendors segmented into four zones: Eat, Shop, Play, Fun. Despite there being enough nosh, fashion, lifestyle and design goods to see, the event was generally underwhelming.
Brought to you by Invade Industry who also hosted Artbox Singapore and other flea markets in Singapore, you would expect the event to be better organised. The queue at most of the stalls are between 30 to 90 minutes. And there’s a long snaking line just to enter Shilin-inspired Night Market.
Just to be clear, the Shilin Singapore is a Shilin-inspired Night Market concept and not the actual Shilin Night Market from Taiwan.
