Your Ideal Birthday Dinner, According To Your Personality

You are what you eat


Your birthday is nearing and you’ve made dinner plans with your closest friends, but the question remains — what are you going to have? There is no lack of options in Singapore, but that’s what makes picking just one for your most special night of the year that much harder.

Fret not, we’ve got you. Here are some dinner ideas for your big day, picked to match each personality perfectly. 

If you’re adventurous…

Go for Peruvian cuisine

As a food hub, there are tons of cuisine from various cultures around the world in Singapore. But one that is definitely less common and new to the scene is Peruvian food — something adventurous foodies will definitely look forward to trying. You'll love the food that’s as eclectic and vibrant as the South American country it’s from.

If you’re determined…

Go for Mexican

You don't mind getting down and dirty for what you want — in fact you like it better this way. Mexican food resonates with you because you know amazing tacos and quesadillas may fall apart, and guacamole and salsa may get everywhere, but that won’t stop you from polishing off every single delish piece.

If you’re classic…

Go for Italian

You never follow trends, but it’s not that you’re not open to trying new things. You’re just aware of what works for you and what doesn’t. A classic Italian meal — especially hearty pasta — is exactly what you need to satisfy both your stomach and soul. It’s not out-of-the-box, but hey, it’s delicious.

If you’re laid-back…

Go for pizza delivery

Your ideal weekend consists of Netflix and Chill, in its most literal sense. For you, there’s nothing quite like the comfort and solitude of home. Instead of heading out for dinner on your birthday, gather all your friends, lay back on bean bags, and chomp on slices of pizza downed with beer while watching a movie. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

If you’re a party animal…

Go for a drinks buffet

Who needs to chew their calories when you can drink them? You’re always up for a drink and a party (or two), no matter what day of the week it is. To make your birthday extra special, go hard and hit up a liquid buffet before dancing your night away with your closest girlfriends. 

P/S: If you’re really doing this, please eat beforehand to prevent a nasty, nasty hangover.

If you’re a kid at heart…

Go for an ice cream buffet

You only watch animated movies, you still love Hello Kitty, and you’re playing both Pokemon Go and the original versions on your GameBoy. Now, it’s your birthday, no one can tell you that you can’t have ice cream as a meal.

If you’re fiery…

Go for Thai food

You’re passionate, opinionated and will never take crap from anyone. Spicy, tantalising Thai food suits your strong personality just right. And even if you don’t take spicy food, your love for challenges and overcoming them is motivation enough to push your tastebuds to the limit with bowl of blazing hot tom Yyum soup.
