The Bar at Morton's - Best Happy Hour Deal in Singapore! Free Steak Sandwiches!

 photo The Bar at Mortons 6.jpg
Morton's is a renowned steakhouse that does an incredibly mean steak. The portions are huge, the food is delicious, prices are reasonable, the ambience is lovely, and the service is impeccable — what's not to love? While their centre-cut ribeye and centre-cut filet mignon are the undeniable stars, their mortinis are equally outstanding. Morton's is more than generous with the amount of gin or vodka that they pour into your mortini glass. 3 ounces, nothing less, is a promise that they've upheld for ages, and the very reason why people keep coming back for them.

MORtini night, which runs daily, is undeniably a huge hit. It is essentially the bar's happy hour. The bar is always packed from 5pm-7pm every evening, and if you haven't been, you really should! Grab a signature mortini (Cosmopolitan, Appletini, Chocolate Mortini, Lycheetini) at just $15.95, and enjoy complimentary steak sandwiches! The Singapore outlet is the only outlet in the whole world that still sends out free steak sandwiches! If this is not the hottest, and the best happy hour deal in Singapore, I don't know what is. $15.95 for a REAL cocktail served in a legit martini glass, with 3 ounces of gin/vodka is a steal enough. But Morton's still wants to spoil you with filet mignon sandwiches. Oh my, how do I stop loving you, Morton's?

Regent Tea Lounge - An Indulgent Weekday Afternoon Tea

 photo Regent Tea Lounge afternoon tea 9.jpg
Having tea on a weekday afternoon is not something that we can do very often. Hence, when we get the chance to kick back and enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea session, we have to make sure that we choose wisely, don't we? The weekday three-tier afternoon tea at Regent Singapore, which is affordably priced at $45/pax, promises to please your palate and fill you to the brim. The tea starts at 12pm, and runs all the way to 5pm. While I didn't spend the full 5 hours here, those who plan to have a long catch-up session with their beloved girl pals will definitely enjoy their time in the revamped colonial garden setting. While the typical afternoon tea sets offer just the stated set, and drinks, Regent has made it their top priority to ensure that guests are very well taken care of with the inclusion of a mini buffet that features mini pastries, salads, sandwiches, Italian cheeses and other small bites.
