Restaurants in Singapore to Celebrate International Women’s Day 2021
Take your pick from these mouth-watering food and drinks promotions to bring your festivities up a notch
In honour of International Women's Day on March 8, some of the island's talented chefs have prepared exclusive menus paired with drinks that celebrate women's achievements, struggles and challenges they continue to face head-on. Take advantage of these appetising promotions, gather all your female friends and make a toast to how fabulous you are at these restaurants.
Executive chef ArChan Chan pays tribute to the remarkable women in her lives with her special dish of braised lamb ribs in curry spices, which you’ll be able to enjoy from March 8 to 12.
It holds a special place in her heart as this was the first dish she cooked for her mum when her family visited her in Australia, where she was pursuing her culinary dreams. She prepares it the same way as she did for them—the lamb ribs are steeped in curry spices and paprika, then braised in a mix of vegetables and herbs such as lemongrass, cinnamon and star anise. But to showcase the restaurant’s urban microbrewery theme, she now serves it with al dente barley malt. Book here.
In honour of the powerful women out there, the team is holding the “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun(damental Rights)” brunch on March 6 and 7. Rest assured they will prepare a delicious Middle Eastern feast of dips, mezze & salads and mains that you can customise.
It’s a tough choice for the mains as options include their signatures of lamb chorizo cassoulet topped with smoked tomato, cannellini beans and broken eggs; Fatteh Breakfast or poached eggs, falafel, tahini atop toasted pita; and Green Menemen, a healthier alternative of spring vegetables, soft eggs and pistachio dukkah. Whatever you choose, it will pair well with the selection of wines, beers and cocktails to be had if you top-up for the free-flow beverage option.
A part of the proceeds from the brunch will be donated to the NextGen Fund, which supports nurturing the next generation of change-makers. Book here.
Zafferano Terrace Lounge
Make a toast to the inspiring women in your life at this Italian restaurant on March 8. Park yourself at the lounge for a majestic vista of the CBD and dig into to savoury canapes made just for the occasion, among which are the Wagyu beef tartare stacked with confit quail egg; Hokkaido scallop crisps served with salmon roe and fennel; and foie gras sandwich with marsala gel.
A trio of saccharine treats was also made to sweeten the meal, and these include the citrusy yuzu and rich dark chocolate bonbon, Japanese strawberry with a zesty limoncello jelly, and Amalfi lemon and raspberry pavlova. The promotion includes two glasses of sparkling wine, red or white wine, or beer. Book here.
An extended International Women’s Day celebration calls for a trip to this modern urban izakaya, which is holding its 90s girl group-themed brunch on March 20 and 21. Enjoy a nostalgic playlist with hits from Spice Girls, TLC and Salt-N-Pepa, as you dig into delectable à la carte and bento brunch options.
These include the popular katsu sando, featuring pork katsu, scrambled eggs and furikake fries, as well as the Birdfeed Benedict, a dish of poached egg smothered in yuzu hollandaise and accompanied by unagi and spinach. Top up to enjoy free-flow drinks for two hours.
Part of the proceeds from this brunch will also be donated to the NextGen Fund to support the next generation of change-makers. Book here.
Taking place on March 7, the Pink Ladies Long Lunch lets you indulge in an extensive menu of brunch staples, mains and desserts while helping a good cause as 10 per cent of the proceeds will be donated to Aware SG.
Start with something light and healthy such as the purple cauliflower hummus and pita before digging into the mains. The roasted seabass entices with its fork-tender meat enriched with tomato and olive salsa, while the duck leg parmentier is indulgence on a plate. It’s brunch after all, so the meal comes with unlimited services of champagne, pink wines and infused gins. Book here.
