Weekday lunch deals in Singapore
We can all agree that the weekends pass way too quickly. With a blink of an eye, Friday becomes Monday yet again and another new work week starts. Sometimes, it’s good to take a random day off just to recuperate, or even treat yo'self to something extra special during lunchtime before returning to the 9-6 grind with 110%.
While you’re in recharge mode, take advantage of these weekday lunch deals in town that you’d normally miss out on during a work day.
