What’s even better than a satisfying meal? We reckon it’s the gratification of doing our bit for charity, however small the gesture. From now until Sept 20, Make-A-Wish Singapore is partnering 25 cafes and restaurants — among them notable names such as Tiong Bahru Bakery, Tipo Pizzeria e Trattoria and Wooloomooloo Steakhouse — for its “Wish Dish” initiative.
A portion of the proceeds made from featured Wish Dishes at participating eateries will go towards raising S$50,000, in hopes of granting the wishes of children with critical illness. Participating eateries have pledged to donate up to 50 per cent of their proceeds from the dishes to the initiative.
Since its inception in 2002, Make-A-Wish Singapore has granted close to 1,800 wishes.
This is Make-A-Wish Singapore’s first partnership with Singapore eateries since 2013. Dr Jeremy Lin, Make-A-Wish Singapore’s chairman, said: “We are grateful for businesses with a heart that are committed to supporting us to grant more wishes for our children.”
The Wish Dish campaign involves a list of popular eateries that serve a variety of cuisines, such as Korean, Chinese, Indian and Western. Diners can order the eatery’s selected menu items as usual and a percentage of the dish’s sales will go towards the cause.
One of the more interesting Wish Dishes you can try is the Oatside kaya toast latte from Open Farm Community in Dempsey. It’s a coconut and pandan-flavoured drink that combines oat milk, coffee and sourdough crumble, and 10 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of the drink will go to the campaign.
At Spring Court, one of Singapore’s oldest restaurants, order its signature crispy roast duck to contribute to the initiative (20 per cent of the proceeds will be donated).
If you’re dining in a bigger group, you can look to The Great Mischief’s signature paella pans, which feature saffron-flavoured rice with chicken or seafood.
