National Day is fast approaching and we’re so excited! This year, the Padang will host the primary fireworks display as usual. On August 9, at the same time as the display at the main parade in Marina Bay, fireworks will also be fired off at five spots in the heartland. If you and your family are looking for the best places to eat during National Day where you can see the fireworks, we’ve compiled a list of the best places to eat during National Day where you can bask in Singapore’s food culture and enjoy the fireworks display as well.
- The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
If you’re looking for something a little more classy and upscale to spend National Day, some high-end hotels and restaurants offer special National Day dining promotions and themed menus, so consider checking out The Fullerton Hotel or other luxury establishments.
The Lighthouse, perched atop The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, will reopen exclusively on Saturdays from July 15 to 29 so that visitors can enjoy the National Day Preview fireworks. Drink a glass of wine, beer, or nonalcoholic beverage while indulging in a National Day Sharing Platter with regional treats including Rendang Wagyu Beef Sliders.
An elegant Singapore Skyline 4-Course Set Dinner and a livestream of the parade are included in the rooftop celebrations on National Day. Highlights from the menu include Japanese Wagyu Beef seasoned with truffle, Noirmoutier salt, and house-made hoisin sauce, as well as Citrus-cured Kingfish with Oscietra Caviar and Somen Noodles in Laksa Broth.
- Satay By The Bay
As the name suggests, enjoy satay, a popular grilled meat skewer dish, while overlooking the beautiful Gardens by the Bay. If you’re not a fan of satay, Satay By The Bay offers plenty of other foods such as Singapore’s favorite chili crab, BBQ sambal stingray, BBQ chicken wings and they even have a BBQ steamboat buffet.
It’s a unique dining experience in a scenic setting. It’s also walking distance from Gardens by the Bay where you can catch the fireworks. While Gardens by the Bay will be packed with people wanting to see the fireworks, Bay East Garden is also worth visiting for a more cozy and personal experience. The Garden’s waterfront location allows for panoramic views of the Marina Bay skyline and other well-known structures. Another popular spot to catch the fireworks from here is the Helix Bridge that’s also a walking distance away.
- Crab Feast at Home
