Does eating cheese feel like you’re being rewarded and comforted? Experts say that there’s a science behind the irresistibility of ooey-gooey, melty, salty and tangy cheese, which has been proven to boost the happy hormones. If you’re cheese-obsessed, you might want to drop by Portside Wharf as it’s celebrating its annual Cheese Week this March. Here are three reasons why you’ve got to be there.
1. It’s an 8-Day celebration!
This is not just going to be a one-day pop-up event. Cheese Week is taking place from the 13th to the 20th of March 2020, so you have plenty of time not to miss out on the good deals and exciting activities.
2. There are so many “grate” offers!
Over a dozen bars and restaurants at the Portside Wharf will be offering discounted deals and special meals with cheese on the menu. For instance, IGA is slashing off 20 percent from its Sprout & Kernel Vegan Cheese range. Byblos Bar has a Cheesy Platter for two for $25. The platter includes yummy pumpkin kebbi, rekakat, goats cheese balls, halloumi and sauces.
Cheese platters, cheese pizzas, cheesy nachos, cheese naan or cheesecake — there are heaps of choices from these eateries:
3. There’s some cheesy events, too!
Samantha and Lisa of @Mr & Mrs Jones are hosting a Wine and Cheese pairing experience. They’ll guide and explain which cheese goes perfectly well with which wine so you’d be a pro in a short time.
This event is on Wednesday, the 18th of March, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Booking is required online.
On the same day, Sense of Taste is hosting a Beer Meats Cheese event featuring Bentspoke Brewery beers and Le Fromage Yard cheeses, as well as some cured meats. It happens from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and online booking is a must as well.
Portside Wharf opens at 7:00 a.m. Check with your favourite retailer for its specific trading hours.
