Let's Go Paktor: Date Spots In Jewel Changi Airport
STORY: Diane Lam
05 February 2021
Now that we can't travel abroad, we're all looking for fun things to do in Singapore. And now that we've island-bound for more than a year, finding new places to explore feels more challenging by the week - especially when it comes to finding new places for dating. Which is why we started Let's Go Paktor, a series that takes the guesswork out of planning romantic excursions.
This week, we're taking a look at Jewel Changi Airport, formerly the last stop before an overseas trip, and now, a destination spot for couples looking for a place to spend their Saturday afternoons. Here's what to do there - other than take couple photos at the Jewel HSBC Rain Vortex, of course.
Chow down at Luke's Lobster Jewel Changi
While we can't get Luke's famous lobster rolls in Tokyo or New York City, we'll console ourselves with the fact that we can get them in Shaw Centre and Jewel. Luke's latest Singapore outpost has released Truffle Butter Lobster Rolls ($30.50), a new limited edition menu item that will be available until mid-March. Each purchase of the Truffle Butter Lobster Roll entitles the diner to a pint of craft beer for $8, so get it while you can.

Singapore's first homegrown specialty cinnamon roll kiosk opened in Jewel last month. And from now until February 14, they're offering heart-shaped cinnamon rolls ($3.60 each). Talk about a "sweet" way to say "I love you" to that special someone!
If neither of you has a sweet tooth, rroll also has a number of savoury rolls available, including Japanese Curry and Korean Garlic Onion & Cheese.
