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

There’s quite an autumnal array to sink your teeth into as we head into November. From black truffle-topped steaks to European soul food, this week’s food offerings are as fragrant as they are flavoursome. For the tipplers, Monkey 47’s newest wood-kissed gin is worth a try, but perhaps instead of Ladies’ Night, hop over to Beauty in The Pot for some ladies’ hotpot exclusives instead.
