The Shiok Book - 1 for 1 dining deals, Singapore X Laneway Market

TheShiokBook (www.theshiokbook.com) is a dining guide which offers either 1-for-1 deals or 25% off the total bill at some well known and popular dining places in Singapore. TheShiokBook brings you a book with $1,000 of dollars worth of savings, 65 restaurants and over 100 coupons at $45. Cafe hoppers will find joy in this!



As part of giving back to the society, TheShiokBook has collaborated with 3 charities mainly, Singapore Cancer Society, Assisi Hospice and Ronald McDonald House. For every book purchased from the website, S$10 will be donated to either of these charities based on the buyer's preference.


So thoughtful of the TheShiokBook, all restaurants and cafe has been sorted in their location. More here.


In TheShiokBook, you will see pages like the one above where you can tear off the coupons on the right with various discounts like 1-for-1 or 25% off total bill. 

I'm glad to have the privilege to attend TheShiokBook media launch at Laneway Market cafe, also one of the participating merchants in the book. A 1-for-1 mains and 25% off total bill is available.


Salmon $23, sous vide, pan seared - chamomile and lavender infused apple slaw, ginger flower tomato, pommes mousseline, crispy nori, dashi cinnamon drizzle. Interesting mix of flavours and unique ingredients is incorporated into this dish.

We were all expecting it to be a chunk of whole salmon, but it turns out to be sliced. It was good in flavour, goes pretty well with the cinnamon drizzle. For 23 bucks, I feel it's full potential has yet to be unleashed.


I have always loved Laneway Market's risotto, ever since my first visit with them some time back.
A must order whenever I'm here, Risotto $21 (noticed a slight change in the ingredients and pricing). A mix of dashi, mushrooms, onsen egg, beurre noisette poached crab meat topped with bonito flakes.


One of my favourite pick at Laneway, Beef $24. It's 42 day aged wagyu rump, truffle smashed potatoes, mushrooms reduction, ponzu jus, watercress and smoked milk foam.

Love the medium rare texture while the truffle aroma was distinctive enough to bring out the overall flavour. The ponzu jus is served at the side, pour in moderation as the alcohol flavour is pretty strong.


Sous Vide Poached Eggs $17. It's 24 hours beer infused pulled pork, mirepoix pain de mie and smoked capsicums. Wish they could have been more generous with the pull pork portion, nonetheless pretty decent dish I would say. My least favorite among the 3 new items.


You can find the full view of Laneway Market here. Besides The Entertainer App (another 1-for-1 offers to the best restaurants/ attractions) that I often used for my dining experience, TheShiokBook is my next pick which features lots of my personal favorite cafes. And not forgetting that a $10 will be donated to charity for every book purchased, indeed the best way of giving back to the society.

Have you gotten yours? Saving $ at it's best! More information on http://www.theshiokbook.com/
