The guys behind Platypus Kitchen have quietly opened a new concept in the hip east side neighborhood of Joo Chiat and we’re so glad they did. If you’re a fan of crowd favorites like Lucha Loco, Super Loco or the former Hombre Cantina, you won’t want to miss this one.
Platypus Cantina has recently opened along East Coast Road, adjoining the Santa Grand Hotel East Coast. It’s a spacious venue perfect for smashing drinks with the crew while fueling up on all sorts of tacos ($7.90 for two; $4.90 on Tuesdays), quesadillas ($12.90), honey hot wings ($8.90) and yes, free, unlimited popcorn.
Their generosity doesn’t end there. Why you’ll really wanna be here is for the Happy Hour promotion happening every day from opening till 9pm, where all draft beers, wines and cocktails go for only $9. They’ve got a range of craft beers on tap to choose from, margaritas done the traditional way or frozen, classic concoctions as well as an assortment of micheladas for the daring ones. Even if you come past 9pm, most drinks range from just $12-$14, and their large format jugs ($49-$59) are value for money too.
Besides the obligatory taco Tuesdays, there are special deals going on on all other days too (like $7 sangrias on Wednesdays and $6 mimosas on the weekends), so there’s every reason to come back here for more any day of the week.
Platypus Cantina is located at 171 East Coast Rd. and opens daily from 3pm-12mn on weekdays and 11am-12mn on weekends.
