The Chilli Beef Hot Dog is immensely satisfying with smoked beef sausage, chilli con carne, pico de gallo and mozzarella cheese in a hot dog bun.

What are you waiting for, guys and dolls? Capitol Milk Bar beckons!
They treasure special memories here at Capitol Milk Bar, that’s why they have dedicated many of their burgers to some key people from the history of the Capitol Theatre.
Like silent screen legend Charlie Chapman and his brother Sydney who visited with Capitol Theatre’s Joe and Julius S. Fisher in 1932. Then there’s Douglas Fairbanks, one of the first movie stars to visit Singapore. During his 1935 visit he came to The Capitol to watch the film David Copperfield (1935) with Lady Sylvia Ashley.
Even Hollywood’s most irresistible woman Ava Gardner made an appearance here in 1954. She was in town to promote her new film, The Barefoot Contessa and attended a private dinner right here at the Capitol hosted by the Shaw Brothers who had taken over a damaged and neglected theatre after WW11. They repaired and restored her to former glory, also adding the now iconic neon sign. And let’s not forget that fun little fellow who entertained young Singaporeans with weekly matinee cartoons every Saturday from 1933 – Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse.
Many have fond memories of the popular Magnolia Snack Bar. Opening first as the ‘Creameries Milk Bar’ in the Capitol Building in the 1940s, they served ice creams, milkshakes and cakes. It was a hit with Singaporeans both young and old for social gatherings and post-movie bites. Magnolia Snack Bar closed in the late 1980’s but we have brought back the sweetness…
Strike Me Pink was a 1936 American musical comedy starring Ethel Merman – the undisputed First Lady of the musical comedy stage. We named our take on the local classic chendol dessert “Singapore Dash” a reference to Douglas Fairbanks and his “high-speed visits” to Singapore. And, The Jungle Book as a dedication to author Rudyard Kipling who made many trips to Singapore. Imagine being in the theatre in 1942 to watch the classic on the big screen after they turned it into Technicolor action-adventure film!
