National Day is coming! August is definitely one of my favourite months… in fact, I rushed back from my recent back-to-back trips to catch the recent NDP full-dress rehearsals! It was a blast and I really thought this year’s team did an AWESOME job. I’m so very proud of how far we have come!
Another reason why the month of August rocks is also because of the F&B deals across the country as restaurants celebrate National Day. Here’s something I’d like to share to all you fellow foodies out there… Get $5.10 off your bill with every 2 sets of National Day items ordered this month from O’Coffee Club! One set consists of one main and one beverage listed below. They have 10 outlets islandwide, so you can easily pop into any one of them to enjoy this sweet deal!
Customers can tuck into special National Day items like:
Curry Chicken ($7.90) using O’Coffee Club’s special house-made curry paste, served with 5 toasted slices of French baguettes… The chicken, I must say, came in generous portions and were tasty since they were marinated overnight before being slow cooked with potatoes in their secret coconut curry paste. In fact, I could taste the aromatic toasted coconut in there… which made it a bit different from the standard spicy curry we Singaporeans love. Well played, O’Coffee Club, well played.
Their new and improved Chilli Crab Linguine ($19.90) tossed with chunky pieces of crab meat in a tantalising chilli and tomato homemade sauce was also super yums! I’m a spice queen who likes it hot so I was in total agreement when the spouse gave an endearing “Wah! This one got kick ah!” which means, this well-loved local dish passes with bright, flying colours! This is not for your angmoh buddy who likes their linguine
wussy with the boring typical tomato sauce. This my dear friends, is specially made extra spicy for us local who enjoy the good stuff. The chilli/ tomato sauce is sweet and the rations of crab is again generous. Excellent dish really, we both enjoyed it …maybe a bit more than the curry chicken!
I didn’t think anything else could up the ante, but their hearty Prawn Laksa ($15.90) with a poached egg did! First off, I must warn you… this all-time favourite local spicy delight will make your nose run BUT IT IS DAMN SHIOK! And OMG whoever thought of adding a poached egg in there should be given a medal. This was definitely my favourite for the 3 special National Day dishes. There’s much pride in there (as the other half declared in Singlish, “Got standard!”) and I reckon if you live far away from Katong and want some authentic laksa, you can easily satisfy your cravings with this fix!
For those of you with an unapologetic sweet tooth, you’d be happy to know that O’Coffee Club also has these new drinks specially available for the month of National Day 🙂 The aromatic Iced Gula Melaka Blend ($6.90) and Gula Melaka Latte ($6.40) available in hot and cold, is perfect for our hot weather. It tastes like dessert too… so, drink up! Slurppppp…
By the way, if you didn’t already know… their sliced cake selection is the bomb. Priced at a very reasonable $6.90, it’s a decadent treat for dessert lovers looking for a good deal. The quality is not compromised and we were very happy with our choices of Velvet Bliss and Strawberry Fields. As always, we love to share everything… which works out for us since we get to taste and sample more nom noms!
Nadia, the assistant store manager at the Paragon branch we dined at, was really attentive and polite… good service definitely adds a highlight to the experience for sure! The F&B outlet was cozy, so I reckon if you’re looking for a nice place in town to chill after work, this would be it!
