The Weekly Grub: 5 Things To Eat And Drink In Singapore This Week

Virus or not, nothing’s ever come between us and our love for food. Dive into the middle of March with deals from Paradise Group or indulge in a new buffet at Ellenborough Market Café. On a diet? Try going meatless with Porta’s new menu, or enjoy a tipple or two with Neon Pigeon‘s fifth anniversary specials.

Go Meatless with Porta’s Green Monday Menu

We all know the benefits of a plant-based diet, but it’s hard to say goodbye to your favourite cheeseburger overnight. Start with Porta’s new Green Monday menu, a collaboration with Hong Kong social enterprise Green Monday to raise awareness of the benefits of a greener diet. The menu features ten dishes, catering to vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, and nut-free preferences. Go for the Orecchiette Pasta (S$24), a dairy-free pasta dish with wild mushrooms and Beyond sausages that’s just as rich and creamy. And don’t be mistaken – despite its name, the menu is available every day!

Porta is located at Level 1, Park Hotel Clarke Quay, 1 Unity St, Singapore 237983, p. +65 6593 8855. Open daily 11am – 10.30pm.
