1. Chug Chug Singapore – near CBD folks
For those working near or in the CBD, head down to Chug Chug Singapore – a cosy bar just down the street at Tanjong Pagar Road. Soak in the chill ambience of 90s music while bonding over Tiger Crystal and their array of fusion dishes.
A clear standout is the Japanese Pidan Tofu ($13). Pidan is century egg in Mandarin, and also the main star of the dish. On top of a silken tofu is a generous load of century egg sauce, minced century egg, shredded crab meat, tobiko and negi – which all marry each other for an explosion of sweet and savoury tastes that will likely make you reach for seconds.
Their duck & seafood crepe ($16) features their signature crispy duck, and comes with a side of wasabi aioli to spice things up. The sweet, tender duck meat wrapped in thin crepe brings out the refreshing notes of Tiger Crystal.
For a crispy bite to pair with your beers, order their fried garlic pork ($13) – which includes seasoned pork belly and big chunks of fragrant fried garlic.
Address: 114 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088529
Opening hours: 5.30PM-10.30PM, Daily
Telephone: 6224 5113

2. Stickies @ Sunset Way – neighbourhood bar for Westies
Some of life’s simplest joys include unwinding after a long day of work with some good company to HTHT with. Best yet if it’s somewhere nearby so you don’t have to waste precious time on travel. For westies, look no further than Stickies @ Sunset Way, a neighbourhood bar nestled among Clementi HDB residences.
Truffle fries topped with parmesan cheese and a side of truffle mayo ($12) and sesame wings ($8 for half portion, $14 for full portion).
Tiger Crystal is best enjoyed when paired with some bar bites. Think aromatic truffle fries and juicy, sweet yet spicy chicken wings to get you drooling.
The new dish on the menu, mantou-sticks ($4.50/stick, $8/2 sticks) is a must try. Stuffed between the deep-fried mantou is a crispy and caramelised luncheon meat – you can choose your drizzle from chilli crab sauce, nachos cheese and mayo, or the Stickies special house sauce.
Address: 106 Clementi Street 12, #01-50, Singapore 120106
Opening hours: 12PM-10.30PM, Daily

Some of their bar bites include Chicken Karaage ($10), Potato Wedges With Cheese Dip ($12) and Spring Rolls ($10). They also serve up salads, burgers and other mains like Fish and Chips ($14) for those who’d prefer a full meal.

4. Fusion Kitchen & Bar – dine next to the sea
For those staying along the purple line, you can visit this gem at The Punggol Settlement – Fusion Kitchen & Bar. Sit outdoors if you want to enjoy the sea breeze and have a view of lush greenery. If you’d like to bop to some Mandopop ballads and enjoy aircon, head indoors, where you can challenge your pals to a round of darts with Tiger Crystal in hand.
Signature pork knuckle and beer-battered sidewinders ($25.90)
One of the most popular dishes on their menu is the Signature Pork Knuckle ($25.90) – unsurprising since it was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. You also have 3 different sauces on the side to dip in – their house made Thai-style chilli with a hint of sourness, honey mustard and mushroom sauce.
Seafood lovers can try the twister prawn with sweet and chilli sauce on the side ($18.90), a no-mess finger food to snack on.
Address: 3 Punggol Point Road, #01-11/12 The Punggol Settlement, Singapore 828694

K Bar’s house special fries topped generously with kimchi, mayonnaise, cheese and pork belly and luncheon bits ($6.90).
