Birthday cakes aren't everyone's cup of tea, especially for those who aren't into sweet treats.
But you can always count on innovative F&B outlets to come up with something new.
Introducing chicken rice and roast pork 'birthday cakes'.
Savoury birthday cakes
A creation by former Hilton chef Louis Tan, the special cakes are offered at his hawker stalls.
8 Days reported that Tan first made the cakes a permanent item after the Circuit Breaker. The cakes come in three sizes: S$48 (for four pax), S$68 (for six pax) and S$88 (for eight pax).
Customers can also choose from different meat combinations — steamed chicken, roast chicken, roast pork belly, pork belly char siew — to be served atop a bed of rice.
The cakes are adorned with cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes as well.
A new addition coming soon is roast duck, Tan told 8 Days.
Check out some of the combinations:
The items are not on the menu, and are available for pre-order only.
Interested customers should call 98474988 at least two days in advance to place their order. Island-wide delivery is available at S$12 per location.
