Last-Minute National Day Makan Deals

Still no plans for August 9? Try these two restaurants — one of them offers a great view of the NDP fireworks.

1. Steak And Fireworks At Artemis Grill
There’re no mod Sin plates offered here. But Mediterranean restaurant Artemis Grill at the rooftop of CBD office tower CapitaGreen does offer a dazzling view of the fireworks on August 9. And it will be serving four exclusive a la carte dishes just for National Day, including a Whole Roasted Organic Chicken ($62) and Barbecued Spicy Pork Presa (Iberian pork shoulder, $68). Or choose something from the regular menu, like premium Scottish Tenderloin ($62) that’s been dry-aged for 45 days and served with potato purée, caramelised pearl onions and red wine sauce.

Aug 9. L40, CapitaGreen, 138 Market St, S048946. Tel: 6635-8677 (reservations required). www.artemisgrill.com.sg

2.  Local Buffet Brunch At Beach Road Kitchen  
Celebrate National Day like a Singaporean, and by that we mean by tucking into a sumptuous buffet featuring some of our most iconic local makan. JW Marriott’s Beach Road Kitchen is serving a National Day Brunch ($108 per pax without alcohol; $178 with booze). It offers all-you-can-eat Chilli Crabs, Salted Egg Prawns and Suckling Pig alongside other crowd-pleasers such as roast chicken rice and seafood laksa. Wash down the nosh with free-flow teh tarik and bandung, or, for the drinkers, locally-inspired martinis. Oh, and if your birthday falls on National Day, you get to dine for free.

Aug 9, noon-3pm. Beach Road Kitchen, L1 JW Marriott Singapore South Beach, 30 Beach Rd, S189763. Tel: 6818-1913. www.jwmarriottsingapore.com/dining
