After a mid-week famine, Friday is really the day to indulge your inner glutton. To coincide with National French Fry Day, we’ve found two places to enjoy this comfort food.
National French Fries Day, a day where the humble comfort food is celebrated around the world, falls on 13 July every year. Needless to say, it’s the perfect reason to put diet plans on pause and indulge in the popular snack. Here are our top picks on where to get your potato fix.
Urbana Rooftop Bar
Situated at level 33 of Courtyard by Marriott, Urbana Rooftop Bar, a cosily spaced hangout in Novena district, flaunts breathtaking panoramic views of Singapore’s cityscape. It will serve a range of french fry creations with interesting toppings from 13 July to 20 July (each priced at $12). Besides the classic Truffle Cheese fries, there’s the fiery Tom Yum Chicken, where thick-cut fries are coated with tom yum flavoured chicken that has been infused with lime and lemongrass. Try the classic Canadian dish, Poutine, a hearty serving of fries and cheese curds, drenched in hot beef gravy. Wash it all down with ice-cold Tiger beer at a special price of $36 for 6 cans. Floor 33 @ Courtyard by Marriott, 99 Irrawaddy Road. Tel: 6378 2060
Recently opened by the folks from PS Cafe, Jypsy offers a modern take on traditional Japanese fare. Decorated in restful shades of blue and light wood tones, it’s easy to feel right at home at this café. Settle down and enjoy their Nest of Fries ($11), which exudes a strong aroma and flavour of fragrant white truffle oil, and makes the perfect side to light mains like Crispy Shrimp ($16). A drinks menu filled with fusion concoctions like Sake Spritz ($17) and refreshing Sparkling Yuzu & Lemongrass soda ($9.50) complete the picture. 38 Martin Rd. Tel: 6708 9288
