The Sampan – Asian Bar and Kitchen at Boat Quay

With a backdrop set against the iconic Singapore River, there is probably no better place to relish our childhood favourite dishes than The Sampan.

An inspired list of dishes has been lined up to celebrate Singapore’s rich culinary origin, where you can enjoy a four-course menu consisting of local dishes that evoke fond memories in many of us, but are increasingly harder to find in mainstream dining establishments. Recommended dishes in this menu include Duck Satay Lilit, Lamb Shank Tulang Merah, and Curry Fish Head.

At just SGD54++ for four dishes (and a huge serving of nostalgia), we say this National Day menu is certainly worth every cent.
