It’s time, once again, for us to go out. With Singapore now in Phase 2, restaurants have finally opened their doors for dine-in customers. As we slowly ease out of isolation, we’ve got suggestions on dining spots to include on your must-visit list.
But first, here are some safety tips to keep in mind.
1. Remain cautious. Observe social distancing when you’re out, wear your masks, and wash your hands.
2. Your health is a priority. Stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.
3. Plan ahead. Call the merchant to check for changes in their opening hours.
4. Follow the rules. Remember, you can only dine-in at restaurants in groups of 5.
5. Skip the queue. Make a table reservation to save time.
And with that, here’s a quick rundown of dine-in merchants you should give a try.
At Bedrock Bar & Grill, you are in for a treat with a variety of fine steak cuts and full-service whiskey bar.
