Usher in the new year with a breathtaking view of the fireworks along Marina Bay as you indulge in good food and drinks from eateries nearby.

HungryGoWhere has compiled a list of five restaurants that offer you a prime spot to catch the fireworks as you count down to 2023. 

With plenty of cuisines to pick from — ranging from Mexican to Italian and even Australian farm-to-table — you are in for a culinary (and visual) treat!

Super Loco is all about providing an authentic Mexican dining experience with its extensive list of tacos, tostadas and a curated collection of artisanal tequila. The eatery is also known for its Taco Tuesdays, where guests can create their own platter of six juicy tacos.

Visitors to Super Loco at Customs House — located by the bay, opposite Marina Bay Sands — are in for a breathtaking view of the New Year countdown fireworks. For a prime view of the fireworks, you can opt for its al fresco seating.

Tickets range from S$476++ for an indoor table for two guests to S$1,390++ for an outdoor bayfront table for five guests with a premium view by the bay.

All packages come with a four-course dinner and free flow of drinks. The first course features seafood appetisers such as langosta de tostada, which comprises grilled lobster, agave, mashed avocado, corn salsa, crispy quinoa and red sorrel.

This is followed by tacos and a contemporary Mexican main, such as the Angus ribeye steak. For dessert, there’s super churros — crispy churros with Mexican chocolate sauce and coconut dulce de leche (caramelised milk) as dips.

The New Year’s Eve dinner set and free-flow drinks will be available from 8pm to 12am.
