F&B OULETS CLOSED 2020

2020 has been a bad year for everyone, period. 

Most industries in Singapore have been badly hit by the pandemic, which has left many of us scrambling to save our sinking boats. The F&B sector especially has suffered and things got worse when the Circuit Breaker was put in place, restricting people from dining out and patronising these establishments.

Aside from COVID-19, many of these F&B ventures have also decided to close for other reasons such as the end of their lease. Whatever the case, we are sad to see these places go and we hope that better opportunities will come their way soon.
