Whether it’s for food or retail therapy, we Singaporeans love a good bargain. The good news is, KINEX mall is offering unbeatable deals throughout the week of 22nd-26th February 2021, with $5 Weekday Deals for both shopping and dining. For those who are bored of frequenting the same old eateries and shops, these F&B and retail outlets are new in Singapore.
From 10-inch woodfired pizzas and Peranakan rice bowls to fashionable T-shirts and trendy tumblers all priced at $5 each, here are six weekday deals that you can look forward to. Read till the end for an exclusive CNY chiropractor promo, just in time to rid you of all aches and pains for the Year of the Ox.
Note: *The $5 Weekday Deals are available at a limited quantity each day, at each participating outlet’s discretion.
Chilli crab may be Singapore’s iconic local dish, but it’s pretty high-commitment to tear into an entire crab – shell and all. As a more convenient alternative to satiate your sweet and spicy crustacean cravings, try Hungry Bear Cafe’s Fried Mantou with Chilli Crab Dip available during the promo week for less than half its original price.
For $5 (U.P. $10.90), you’ll get six mantou buns alongside a generous serving of sweet chilli crab sauce filled with crab meat. With their revamped menu in January, you can also expect new items such as the creamy and spicy Tom Yam Prawn Pasta. As a weekday bonus, you can top up $4 with each main to enjoy your choice of any side dish and canned drink.
Bonus: They’re also having an ongoing promotion where you can get a free kids meal with every order of a main dish. Available on weekdays only, for kids below the age of 12.
Fun fact: 800° is the brainchild of celebrity chef Anthony Carron, in partnership with NBA stars Dwayne Wade and Udonis Haslem.

Whether you’re a controversial pineapple-on-pizza advocate or a carnivorous meat-holic, you’ll be thrilled to know that the Los Angeles favourite 800° Woodfired Pizza has landed in Singapore. Veering away from conventional ovens, 800° sticks to the traditional roots of baking with woodfire, resulting in pizzas that are smoked to perfection with an aromatic char.
While most woodfired pizzas cost upwards of $20-$30, the prices at 800° are unbeatable, with an entire 10-inch priced from $15. Coupled with the weekday exclusive deal, you’ll be able to carbo-load on a 10-inch woodfired pizza for only five bucks.
Hailing from Hoboken, New Jersey, Blimpie is bringing its range of freshly prepared subs, wraps, paninis, and salads to Singaporeans in search of wholesome, filling, and nutritious mains.
The authentic all-American deli will have its signature sandwich, Blimpie Best – loaded with turkey ham, beef salami, oven-roasted turkey, beef pepperoni and provolone cheese, on offer at $5 (U.P. $10.50) as part of KINEX mall’s weekday deals promo.
You can watch as your Blimpie sandwiches get prepared with freshly grilled and sliced deli meats. Other favourites include Roast Beef & Swiss Cheese and Philly Cheesesteak.
If you love Peranakan cuisine but don’t have time to spare dining leisurely at a multi-course restaurant, look no further than Daisy’s Dream Cafe. A spin-off concept from the famous Daisy’s Dream Kitchen Peranakan restaurant, this cafe specialises in wholesome Nyonya bowls and single origin Arabica coffees by ME THAI Coffee.
They’ll be offering their two most popular Nyonya bowls, the Assam Chicken bowl and Babi Pongteh (braised pork) bowl for a crazy low price of $5 (U.P. $9.80).
Each is filled to the brim with ingredients such as crispy ngoh hiang, cucumber slices, and your choice of chap chye or sayur lodeh – braised mixed vegetables and vegetables in coconut curry respectively. Other bowls include the tender Beef Rendang bowl and Babi Buah Keluak bowl.
Try their homemade Lemongrass with Thai Lime or OrangeSpresso – a mix of orange juice and double espresso.
Of course, your meal would not be complete without one of the cafe’s authentic Thai coffees or unique drink concoctions. With specially roasted Thai coffee beans that are also used at Tuk Tuk Cha, the cafe offers an interesting mix of traditional milk coffee as well as quirkier ways to get your dose of caffeine – such as the OrangeSpresso.
Over at the newly opened Fancy Collection, you’ll find a whole assortment of home and lifestyle products including Japanese snacks, cute stationery, cuddly bubble tea plushies and uniquely designed tumblers.
During the Weekday Deals promotion, all tumblers in the $9.90 range will be on sale for $5. They come in an assortment of colourful designs, some with thick straws so you can bring them along for your next bubble tea or smoothie run to help combat plastic waste.
Note: The tumbler Weekday Deal is valid for the first 20 customers per day throughout the campaign period, so hurry down fast.
For those looking for a variety of fashion brands all in one place, theemporium market is the best place to shop at without bouncing from store to store. It offers a wide range of products from brands like The Island Shop, ISLE & ISLE, and Beverly Hills Polo Club. Moreover, they also stock contemporary Korean brands such as H:Connect which are difficult to find elsewhere.
During the promotion period, you’ll be able to spruce up your wardrobe with eye-catching $5 graphic tees from Korean fast-fashion brand, H:Connect. Originally priced from $32.90-$34.90, you can now get these T-shirts up to a whopping 85% off.
