World Cup frenzy comes to a successful close
Singapore, 16 July 2014 - A whirlwind month of endless nail-biting World Cup matches, culminated in Germany clinching the title as World Cup Champions. For Riverview Hotel, our first venture into World Cup territory proved to be a rounding success.
Innovative World Cup Menu
Throughout the month, a series of World Cup publicities in various mediums featured our innovative World Cup menu, the first of which was published in TODAY on 19 June.
For starters, Executive Chef Lewis Tay, revved up the World Cup mood by whipping up exquisite dishes that celebrate the distinctive cultures of the countries playing in the World Cup. Guests dining at River Garden Coffee House got a taste of dishes such as Brazil’s Churrasco Beef, Spain’s Baked Basque Fish, Australia’s Meat Pie, Japan’s Chicken Curry, England’s Shepherd’s Pie, Italy’s Chicken Saltimbocca, France’s Coq au Vin and Germany’s Schweinshaxe, amongst others.
“Live” screening of Matches 24/7
To cater to World Cup fans, River Garden Coffee House was open 24 hours during match day with beers going at exclusive promotional prices. Undeterred by matches that take place in the wee hours of the morning, River Garden Coffee House saw hordes of fans who braved sleepless nights to get a dose of their Brazil 2014 fix.
Our in-house “Spend & Win” contest which required a $50 spend saw our lucky winner, Terence Chua, walking away with a one-night stay, supper snacks and a complimentary bottle of wine on the Final Match of the World Cup.
We would like to sincerely thank our guests, diners, partners and media for your continued support throughout this World Cup season and we are looking forward to the next World Cup in 2016.
