There are places worth venturing to the East for, one of them is Table Manners at Changi City Point.
Table Manners is a casual restaurant serving affordable European fare, and known for dishes such as TM Pork Ribs, Mushroom Swiss Burger, classic Fish & Chips, Steak & Cheese, Laksa Tiger Prawns Pasta, and Pescatore – mixed seafood tossed together with spaghetti in a tomato paste base.
For the sweet-tooth, there are also luscious desserts such as Sticky Date Cake, Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart, and Lemon & Lime Tart to choose from.
On a date?
You can choose to dine at the outdoor seating area of Table Manners which is set in the garden at The Oasis, contained within a pavilion. Very pretty and good for pictures.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: Table Manners’ Carbonara ($18++)
One of Table Manners’ most popular pasta items, the classic egg-based Carbonara is now available for the 1-For-1 deal.
The pasta dish contains chunks of smoked Pancetta and shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano tossed in al dente spaghetti.
Moderately creamy, there was a faint aroma of truffle as I twirled the spaghetti which made it more enticing.

Opening Hours: 8:30am – 10:30am (Breakfast and Speciality Coffee, coffee continues from 10:30am to 11:30am, non PH, Mon – Fri)

The star of WOLF Burgers is said to be the patty – produced in house with a secret recipe, to ensure a juicy, succulent burger always.
Started from the team of Carvers & Co., the burger kiosk from Pasarbella got so popular that they opened a stand-alone shop at Changi City Point.
They are known for “The WOLF Burger”, their version of a standard Cheeseburger. Best paired with some Korean-American inspired Kimchi Cheese Fries topped with kimchi, sour cream, cheese and chives.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: WOLF Burgers’ Mushroom Burger Set ($13.90 Nett)
There are two components that I enjoyed about the Magic Mushroom Burger: the provolone cheese which added fuller-buttery flavours with a semisoft texture; and sautéed truffle mushrooms which would ‘release’ that aroma as you take a huge bite into the burger.
The meat comes complete with a choice of any of WOLF Burger’s side dishes such crispy fries, Broccoli Salad with Goma Dressing or Truffled Mushroom Soup and a drink.

Five Izakaya is known for its $5 food and drink specials, which is on All-Day-Every-Day.
During lunch time, the office crowd heads over for its value-for-money set lunches, with offerings of Bara Chirashi Don, Aburi almon Don, Unagi Don, Katsu Don, Curry Katsu Don, Ebi Fry Don and more, served with a hot and cold side dish.
Come nightfall, the restaurant transforms into a busy Izakaya, best for friends and colleagues to catch up over drinks and bar snacks, just like how they do it in Japan.
Expect ‘live’ music on Mondays to Fridays, and football screenings during the weekends.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: Five Izakaya Bar’s Chicken Teriyaki Don with 2 sides ($15++)
Succulent grilled chicken thigh fillet drizzled with teriyaki sauce, topped on fluffy Japanese rice.
The set also comes with two sides with options of Salmon Sashimi, Japanese Chilled Tofu, Gyoza Fry, Chicken Karaage, and Potato Croquette. The deep-fried golden brown potato with soft fillings was my favourite. End the meal with a bowl of hot Miso soup.
MOA Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill
Unit No.: #01-70/71
Tel: +65 6636 3353
Opening Hours: 11.30am – 12am (Mon – Sat), 5.00pm – 12am (Sun)
There are not many New Zealand themed restaurants in Singapore, and MOA offers some of the most extensive award-winning beers and wines from down under.
The team takes pride in where they source their beer and food, and serves up craft beers from Moa New Zealand and Home2.0 Lithuania.
These beers are said to be brewed in a traditional method with no pasteurization, and bottle conditioning which keep the beers fresh for a good 12 months.
In terms of food, the menu is extensive with offering of barbequed meats, thin-crusted hand-rolled pizzas, pork ribs, juicy burgers and tapas, best paired with some of their beers and wines.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: MOA Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill’s Set A Lunch ($15.50++)
Certainly looks like an amazing deal. The 4-course “Set A Lunch” includes a starter of Soup of the Day, main, ice cream dessert, and hot beverage with choice of coffee or tea. Valid only on weekdays from 11.30am to 3pm.
The mains include choices of Prawn Aglio Olio, MOA Beef or Chicken Burger with Fries, Fish & Chips with Fries & Coleslaw, and Sirloin Steak (additional $1) with Mashed Potatoes.
I don’t think you can find many Sirloin Steak in Singapore at this pricing. What you get is a substantial dish of grilled tender sirloin steak, seasoned with a touch of herbs, served with mashed potatoes and vegetables.
There is an accompanying chef’s brown sauce which you can pour over, and use as a dip.
For something lighter, you can choose the Prawn Aglio Olio with spaghetti sautéed with prawns in olive oil, chilli flakes, garlic and Allan Scott’s Sauvignon Blanc.

Need something healthy? Ohana Poké bowl serves up signature poke bowls, DIY poke bowls, and sushi rolls.
To build your own Poké bowl, get a base from a choice of mixed rice, brown rice, rice or green salad, followed by a variety of poke from tuna, salmon, chicken, and tofu & mushroom.
The Tuna and Salmon comes in choices of wasabi shoyu, spicy and sesame (for salmon only), and I would say go for the “spicy” which gives a slight kick along with the fresh chunks of fish.
You can also look out for their daily specials.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: Ohana Poké’ Small Poke Bowl ($12.80 Nett)
The Small Poke Poké allows you to mix-and-match from varied Poké, toppings and superfood.
Talking about superfood, the add-ons include one choice of avocado, tobiko (flying fish roe), ikura (salmon roe), chia seeds, crab salad or an onsen egg.
A protein packed bowl that is indeed value for its money.

While Salad Chef is a small and humble salad shop, there are three things I liked about it: its variety (more than 40 items to choose from), freshness, and specialty salad dressings.
In terms of signature ingredients, those to look out for are the grilled potato, sautéed mushrooms, grilled chicken and mixed herb prawns. As for the salad dressings, the two most popular in-house dressings are Japanese Wafu and Honey Lemon dressings.
Also available are 12 “Chef-Designed Salads”, such as Chicken Avocado, Spicy Beef, Tuna Love, and Waldorf Turkey – all priced affordable from $8.50 to $15.00.
Other than salads, Salad Chef also serves up “Chef Designed Wraps” and a newly launched toast menu.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: Salad Chef’ Caesar Salad ($11 Nett)
The most popular salad served is the simple but tasty Caesar Salad, consisting of romaine, croutons, hardboiled egg, chicken breast, parmesan cheese and bacon bits.
I found the grilled chicken breast particularly moist and tender, with its own special marinate. The croutons are also made by in-house, which are crispy with a light fragrance.

Teppei Syokudo needs little introduction, created by Chef Teppei Yamashita, known for its signature Kaisendon.
Their Kaisendon is a hit among office workers, for sashimi rice bowls included with colourful cubes of fleshy raw seafood mixed with a secret-recipe sauce, fresh vegetables, on a bed of fragrant sushi rice.
Do you know: Teppei’s Kaisendon was originally meant to be a meal for his employees. Cutting up fish into cubes from fish that was not used up during dinner, Chef Teppei would serve it with a home-made sauce at the side.
The off-the-menu special item became popular among regular diners, and has now even found fame beyond our shores with a store in Hong Kong.
CCP 1-For-1 Main Course Promo: Teppei Syokudo’s Kaisendon ($16 Nett)
Teppei’s signature Kaisendon includes 6 different types of raw seafood (Salmon, Tuna, Swordfish, Whelk, Scallop and Ikura), Teppei’s special secret sauce, on top of a bowl of fluffy Japanese rice complemented with freshly grated wasabi.
The special sauce made from Japanese soya sauce and other secret ingredients is the winner here, which complements and elevates the freshness of the fish.
With an almost equal portion of seafood and rice served, portions are generous and make a substantial and inexpensive meal.
