Labor Day Long Weekend

Tonight marks the start of the LABOR DAY LONG WEEKEND! Time to PARTAYE! I don’t know about you, I for one could use another break. The week has been pretty shit to me.

I’m tempted to use up these few days by just going on a “nap marathon” but then again, that’s such a waste and I have to eat! I’ve handpicked a couple of food joints that caught my eye. Might be your cup of tea, might not, you pick and choose.

Labor Day Long Weekend Stickies Bar for drinks

11 Keng Cheow St, #01-10, Singapore 059608

If you’re looking for somewhere to pre-drink before hitting a weekend party, look no further. Stickies has you covered. I think there are a couple of times I actually miss said party after getting too hammered here.

They’ve introduced a revolutionary concept called “Beer O’clock”. How it works is simple, a pint of beer/glass of house pour at 6pm to 6.59pm goes for $6, 7pm to 7.59pm, $7. So on and so forth. The best part? It starts at 2pm.

Recently, Stickies introduced a new food menu to the public and I’ll be featuring them in “The Weekly Glutton” soon but if you want my advice, order the Spicy Chicken Quesadilla. I fully approve.

Labor Day Long Weekend El Spice for Mexican and Indian fusion food

407 JALAN BESAR, Singapore 209012

El Spice Bistro just recently opened and I haven’t had the chance to sample their food yet but their dishes really look promising. Mexican and North Indian fusion cuisine isn’t new in Singapore. They’re two cultures that really complement one another gastronomically so I’m not surprised.

Their online reviews seem promising. I’ll blog about them in “The Weekly Glutton” when I’ve tasted their food.

Labor Day Long Weekend poke doke for healthy and delicious food

#01-95 Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Blvd, Singapore 039596

Another eatery I have yet to try but definitely will visit. The poke bowl trend in Singapore is flourishing (I think there are close to 14 different poke bowl options to choose from now).

For those who do not know what a poke (pronounced po-keh) bowl is, it’s an addictive mixture of sushi rice, cubed raw fish (sashimi) and a variation of sauces and seasoning. Not only is the poke bowl healthy but extremely delicious and great post work out food.

Labor Day Long Weekend durian cakes at Durian Fiesta @ Goodwood Park

22 Scotts Road, Singapore 228221

I’m pretty sure no one’s going to get food poisoning this time round. They wouldn’t allow it to happen twice.

Here’s the article from the Straits Times if you don’t know what happened last year

http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/goodwood-park-bakery-suspended-after-76-food-poisoning-cases-linked-to-durian-pastries

Made from your King of Durians – D24 and Mao Shan Wang, be spoiled for choice with a total of 14 different durian enriched pastries. I’m gunning for the Starry Starry Night Ice-Cream Cake. Imagine a thick and rich Durian ice-cream center just waiting to explode in your mouth. SOLD.

 

ON AN UNRELATED NOTE

Labor Day Long Weekend art book fair for cheap art books

Singapore Art Book Fair

Gillman Barracks, 9 Lock Rd, Singapore 108932

Friday, April 28 2017 10am – 8pm

Saturday, April 29 2017 10am – 8pm

Sunday, April 30 2017 10am – 7pm

To mix things up a little I’m just throwing this in for you arts people (like me). I think my house could use a couple more art books strategically lying around to impress people.

There will be a mesh of local and global exhibitors with a wide range of products (catalogues, art books, zines, art pieces) to offer.

Admission is free, seems like a great way to spend your Saturday or Sunday morning with a date (or alone, “there, there, don’t be sad, someone will come along one day”).
