Chope Deals – Online Food Festival 2018
Deal hunters will be familiar with online sales happening throughout the year. The 9/9 sale in September, 11/11 Singles’ Day in November, and of course the Black Friday sale that’s also in November.
There’s another date to add to this list with Chope Deals’ Online Food Festival that is happening from 1 to 5 October 2018. Showcasing some of the best dining deals in Singapore, there will be over 150 restaurant vouchers on sale at up to 85% off. The five-day event will focus on a different type of cuisine each day from 1 to 4 October, with a Mega Flash Sale happening on the last day. Here’s a sneak peek of what to expect.
1 October: Asian
Crafting modern Japanese dishes, Maru serves up interesting sushi rolls and donburi. For Chope Deals’ Online Food Festival, their Four Course Set Meal will be going at $15 nett (U.P. $30++). The set includes Ikura Chawanmushi, Anago Foie Gras Don, miso soup, and a scoop of ice-cream. The Anago Foie Gras Don combines grilled salt-water eel with chunks of foie gras and flavoured sushi rice, which is then glazed with honey for a rich and decadent flavour.

2. Bao Makers
We visited Bao Makers a few months ago and were impressed by their signature buns. There are four to choose from, but the Chilli Crab Bao (U.P. $5.80++) was definitely our favourite. You’ll find crab meat chunks mixed with the chilli crab sauce sandwiched between a crisply fried mantou. The sauce had just the right amount of tanginess, and I particularly liked how just a serving can satisfy my chilli crab cravings.
I’ll be camping in front of my computer for this deal as they’re having a Main + Drink promotion at $15 nett. You get to choose from eight mains, including the Bao Set that comprises two buns of your choice, a house salad, and edamame.
