It’s no secret that chargrilled flavours and cocktails are a match made in heaven. At Violet Oon Satay Bar & Grill, you can delight in your smokey favourites washed down with locally inspired concoctions like the classic Singapore Sling or Kesturi Sour — an original creation that puts a spin on the Whisky Sour with the use of freshly-squeezed limau kesturi instead of standard lemon juice. Can't decide on your accompaniment? Let us kick things off with a 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝘀𝗶𝘅 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗦𝗮𝘁𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱 $𝟱𝟱++ 𝗼𝗻 𝗱𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗸𝘀 𝗮𝘁 𝗩𝗶𝗼𝗹𝗲𝘁 𝗢𝗼𝗻 𝗦𝗮𝘁𝗮𝘆 𝗕𝗮𝗿 & 𝗚𝗿𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗵𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗦𝗲𝗽𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗢𝗰𝘁𝗼𝗯𝗲𝗿.

“Ok I’m cheating cause on some Saturdays, I laze in all day that 6pm becomes my first meal! Violet Oon Satay Bar And Grill is a great space for chilling out to my favourite cocktails like Singapore Sling and plates of chunky chicken satay. It also makes for a great excuse to take a nice stroll down Singapore River to take in the smells and sights of godowns and nightspots for a nostalgic weekend.”

Charmaine Ho, Executive Editor

“I like the chill vibes of Seletar Aerospace Park — perfect for when you just want to relax on the weekend. I like The Summerhouse but the downside to this is, everyone seems to feel the same too. Ring them up and make a reservation before heading down.”

Daphne Tso, Senior Art Director

I love building my own protein bowl and controlling what I eat to be as clean and unprocessed as possible. This means endless possibilities of yummy colourful salads. I really love the concept of KIPOS, because I get to choose what goes into your salad — vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, nuts, peas, and not forgetting — the dressings! Fresh fruits and vegetables are delicious, so mixing them in an array of different combinations to create a salad ensures exciting meals. Who says you can’t get creative with what you eat?

Windy Aulia, Creative Director

“For a quick weekend escape with scrumptious food, I just need to go to Bayswater Kitchen. I never knew that I like fish and chips that much, especially when it comes together with the beautiful view of Singapore’s own Keppel Bay.”

Jeffrey Yan, Associate Fashion Director

Telok Ayer Arts Club’s nasi lemak and beef rendang really hits the spot when I’m craving Malay food—which is a lot of the time. They’ve set up a pop-up at Cluny Court and while seating is extremely limited, you could always grab to go and make a picnic out of it at the Botanic Gardens?”

Arissa Ha, Senior Beauty Editor

“Heading over to Five Oars Coffee Roasters after my yoga sesh is part of my usual weekend routine. The carb-laden chicken and waffles really hit the spot after a workout.”

Luke’s Oyster Bar at Gemmill Lane. The food is always good plus they make the most fabulous Dirty Martini.”

Stephanie Gracia, Associate Art Director

“My weekend spot will be Privé at Jewel Changi Airport. It’s located at panoramic spots that take full advantage of the greenery and natural lighting. Plus it offers an all-day menu of local & western dishes. Best spot to relax on weekend.”

Shermin Ng, Senior Digital Writer

Atlas Coffeehouse serves up a hearty selection of all-day brunch options in what was once an industrial warehouse (think: airy, well-lit). My go-tos? Their smashed avo with watermelon and butterscotch banana pancake.”

Navin Pillay, Social Media Producer

“My must-haves for brunch are: great coffee, a good variety of nosh, nice ambience and decadent desserts. Few restaurants make the cut, which is why I absolutely love Oriole Coffee + Bar at Pan Pacific Suites Orchard. Tucked away in between 313 Somerset and H&M Orchard, it offers me everything I want out of brunch and more (read: cocktails). I particularly like their Taisho White coffee (which comes in a pretty glass bottle that you can takeaway); Sticky Date Pudding with ice-cream, and not to mention their newly-launched Chilli Crab linguini”

Margaux Levy, Contributing Digital Writer

“Personally, I think a great place to treat your friends to a casual lunch on the weekends is at The Butcher’s Block at Raffles Hotel Singapore. The resto serves up a divine weekend lunch menu such as tostadas and pizzas that are made of premium ingredients. Plus, the wine menu is amazing too. They even offer a wide range of bubblies to complete the meal. My personal fave is the Kindeli Pét-Nat Rosé. Highly recommend!”
