1-for-1 lunch deals in Singapore
We can all agree that next to “pang kang loh”, lunch is the best time of the day. Since it’s a momentary reprieve from our daily grind, we should milk the heck out of it and indulge in savoury nosh to keep us going till EOD.
Thankfully, some restaurants are woke enough to understand the importance of this blessed hour. That’s why they’re dishing out 1-for-1 lunch deals that’ll keep both our wallets and tummies full.
1. Citrus Bistro
With its netted ceiling and dim lighting, Citrus Bistro makes for a romantic date night spot. However, dusk isn’t the only time to be here. Pop by between 12pm and 3pm on weekdays to enjoy 1-for-1 deals on their mains, burgers and pasta.
We tried their BIG Boss Burger ($17.90+) and loved how juicy their beef and mutton patties were. The satay sauce in the burg’ had a sweet undertone that complemented the caramelised onions.
Another dish that’s worth a try is the Dry Curry Pasta with Chicken ($11.90+) – linguine tossed in a flavourful Asian curry blend, topped with tender chicken fillets.
