Single’s Day (today) is a chance to honour and celebrate your independence and single status. Of course 14th February Valentine’s Day celebrations are a fantastic way for couples to celebrate their romance, but singles can now also hold their own festivities in November and they don’t need to be all about shopping-related retail therapy!
Top rated restaurants for Singles Day 2019
There are lots of brilliant restaurants, cafes, and diners in Singapore offering singles plenty of opportunities to relax and enjoy leisurely meals, without feeling the least bit apologetic for taking up a table or having regrets about being alone. Our foodie experts offer up our (subjective….) pick of some fantastic places to celebrate your independence this Single’s Day.
- Singles Day may be one of the biggest shopping festivals in the world now, but this festival originated in China and is often also referred to as Bachelors’ Day. Celebrating your single status with a superb Chinese meal at the Michelin star-rated restaurant Candlenut could be the best way for you to enjoy Singles Day in 2019. Candlenut serves Singaporean style Chinese dishes, so you’re sure to feel truly at home in this restful ambiance.

- If fast, local food is your preference you certainly won’t go wrong when you opt to dine at Katong Laksa on Singles Day. This is one of the busiest diners in Singapore, famed for its tasty noodles and nasi lemak, so if you need to grab a quick bite during your lunch break or a fast snack after work, take the time to enjoy the delicacies offered at Katong Laksa.
- If you’re craving a lively atmosphere with a buzz then Tong Ah’s coffee shop and stall is definitely the in-place on Singles Day and any other day of the year. This is where you can meet other like-minded singles while grabbing a quick serving of Tong Ah’s famous kaya toast. Take time to linger over your coffee and watch the variety of people crossing the threshold of this popular diner. In truth, we don’t think anything beats single status. You’ve got your independence and can take as long as you like to enjoy drinks and meals, with no pressures to meet the agenda of any significant other. What’s more, when you crave companionship your family and friends are close by to call on and meet up with! Happy Single’s Day 2019!
