For a pink cause
October is “Breast Cancer Awareness” month and Goodwood Park’s L’Espresso is playing its part by giving its English afternoon tea menu a pink theme from Oct 1 to 31. Egg Mayonnaise Pink Sakura Denbu (fish flakes) Sandwiches, Atlantic Shrimp Cocktails with Raspberry Aioli and Beetroot Smoked Salmon are some of its extensive savoury options. If you prefer to indulge your sweet tooth, L’Espresso’s pink berry macarons, vanilla eclairs, raspberry cupcakes and pink chocolate fountain will not disappoint. Also, all guests will receive pink ribbons worth $2, with proceeds from every additional ribbon bought to be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation. $45 per adult and $22.50 per child.

Let’s rock
After four months of renovation, Hard Rock Café Singapore on Cuscaden Road is back. Besides giving its signature “legends of entertainment” homage an update, the café sports a more sophisticated look while keeping its memorable Rock theme. The American menu is back in all its greatness, but this time with favourite local delicacies. Guests may recognise iconic dishes such as Nasi Goreng and seafood Char Kway Teow, while having something to look forward to each season, including Chinese New Year’s “Huat Rock Burger” and a range of meatless options during “Vegetarian Awareness Month” in October.

Something for everyone
COO Bistro’s new “Glocal” menu finds common ground between international and local delights, having a little something for everyone. The restaurant serves an all-day brunch menu and dinner menu that offer unique bites such as the Tiong Bahru Platter (think grilled chicken and roast pork with satay sauce) and its beef steak-meets-onion chilli COO’s Pressed Sandwich. From the sweeter side of COO’s menu, the restaurant takes pride in its Tiong Bahru Chwee Kuey with walnuts and strawberries, while serving up traditional banana waffles, thick toast and housemade granola.
