It’s the weekend! That means you need to get out of the house and fill up your time with some life-enriching activities. We’ll give you some options for food and drink here, you’ll need to figure everything else out yourself.

1 | Steak n fries with Lewin Terrace
Don’t let lunch stop you from having an awesome fun-filled day. Ain't nobody got time for several hours of eating when there's life to experience. A5 Australian Wagyu for the steak, some fries to go with, and the kicker: laksa pasta. We liked everything on this, the SGD 10 top-up of a Japanese red helped along of course. Runs till 15th March, if you don’t fancy steak frites on a weekend (why?) then have it on your weekday lunch breaks too.

Available at 21 Lewin Terrace. Contact 333 9905 for reservations.

2 | Soul food at Manhattan
About damn time. Scoot over to Regent Hotel's Manhattan Bar for a night out in New York and now you'll get a taste of Harlem just off Orchard Road. The bites off this district are heavy on the soul food and Southern front so forget about your clean eating bullcrap for now and eat through the fried green tomatoes, cornbread, fried chicken and waffles and banana cream cookies complete with a dusting of gold on your lips. Wash all that down with cocktails like mezcal strong Lenox (SGD 23) inspired by Harlem's Lenox Lounge, and our favourite cos it's got Snoop in it, well one of his incarnations anyway, the Gin & Juice (SGD 24) with a gold dog chilling on gin and juice topped off with champagne. 

Manhattan Bar is at 1 Cuscaden Road. 

3 | Meatsmith's roasted suckling pig
Lechon is a superfood. The gloriousness of this roasted suckling pig must be experienced in the flesh and you'll get to do that this Sunday during Meatsmith's first birthday. Iskina Cebu, helmed by lechonero Chris Calledo, will help celebrate with a menu of Filipino favourites and the lechon featuring front and centre. Expect tons of drinks, great music and loads of meat. 

Meatsmith is at 167-169 Telok Ayer Street.
