WIN LUNCH FOR TWO: Celebrate SG50 with a Nostalgic Taste of Nanyang at 1933


Located at the newly opened Capitol Piazza in the City Hall area in Singapore, 1933 is the latest F&B concept by the BreadTalk Group, a home-grown international F&B group from Singapore.

The menu at 1933 seeks to recreate a taste of Nanyang, the colonial name of Singapore, bringing patrons back in time to savour the flavours of Singapore in the 1930s. Great effort is put into achieving a balance of Asian and Western flavours for a unique Southeast Asian regional style to reflect the Nanyang identity of migrants in the 1930s that adapted to Western influences.

Diners can look forward to hearty soups served in bread bowls to all-time Singapore favourites like Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice, Grilled Pork Loin, Fish and Chips, or salads and side dishes.
