Level up dreary work days with these CBD lunch options.
Heading back to your office for work and wondering what new CBD lunch options there are? We highlight some of the ones we think you’d like.
With safe management measurements slowly easing at workplaces, office workers are gradually being released from their work-from-home routines and allowed to return to their offices. If you’re one of those, chances are you may not be quite so familiar with the new CBD lunch options that may have popped up in the past year – yes, it’s been that long! – that you’ve been cloistered at home.
So if you’re looking to yourself at the start of the work week or celebrating nearer the weekend, here are five potential lunch options in Singapore’s Central Business District for you to consider. They include a couple of updates from our favourite dining establishments, a conscientious burger bar, an innovative take to a French culinary classic, and a Muslim-friendly steakhouse focusing on a particular steak cut.
Picanhas’ stakes its casual steakhouse claim
Closer to Chinatown, party central Ann Siang Hill saw casual steakhouse Picanhas’ open up along Club Street at the start of the year. As you can probably tell from its name, Picanhas’ puts the spotlight on that celebrated Brazilian steak cut.
The picanha – also known as the rump cap and sirloin cap – is one of the most flavourful cuts of beef. It’s particularly prized for its thick layer of fat, which helps the meat retain its juiciness and tenderness when grilled.
Here Picanhas’ serves the cut in two ways. One is Queen of Steak, 200g grams of flame-grilled meat, where you can add on a multitude of sides (we recommend the fabulously roasted double-cooked Potatoes or the moreish Spinach).
The other is as a rice bowl; the Picanha Don sees 100g of beef slices served atop butterfly pea flower infused rice alongside pickled cabbage, caramelised onions, and an onsen egg. Feeling particularly hungry (or baller)? Top either option with foie gras or Hokkaido scallops.
Need to return to the office with sobriety? There are some great mocktail options here – such as the fruity Kyoho Sangria or the fancy bandung-inspired Rose – as well as a couple of alcohol-free wines.
