When it comes to proper comfort food, especially on cold rainy days, there is none quite as hearty as a bowl of hot ramen. Yet, for something so simple—just hot soup, simple ingredients and noodles—restaurants in Singapore often overcharge for it.
Nestled in the heartland of Kovan along the same row as popular Thai eatery, Nakhon Kitchen is Gonpachi Ramen. At this humble ramen joint, you can expect gorgeous bowls of restaurant-standard ramen that will not cost you more than S$8.
Using freshly imported ingredients from Japan, Gonpachi Ramen serves traditional Japanese ramen, delectable rice bowls and small dishes with a blend of local flavours. This is a joint you should definitely visit for top-notch comfort food at pocket-friendly prices.

Whether you are craving for traditional Pad Thai, creamy Green Curry or simply want to fill your hungry stomach with aromatic beef boat noodles, you will surely be able to find them all at Golden Mile Complex.
Here is our Golden Mile Complex Food Guide, featuring 11 Thai eateries that you must dine at.
Looking back, we have had many fond memories at Plaza Brasserie in PARKROYAL on Beach Road. The buffet restaurant is currently undergoing a transformation and will return as GINGER by the end of the month. While we will miss the family dinners at Plaza Brasserie as well as its wonderful buffet spreads spread, boy, were we excited when we found out what GINGER will be offering.
The all-new GINGER will showcase the best of local food and regional highlights. Using only premium ingredients such as lobsters and crabs with familiar local recipes we all grew up enjoying, this buffet goes above and beyond your expectations of how local food should be like.
From fresh seafood to roasted delights and regional cultural delicacies, quote ‘ladyironchef-two-for-$88’** upon making your reservation to enjoy the dinner buffet at S$88++ for 2 pax from 27 June 2017 to 31 August 2017.

There is a common misconception that Tokyo is a pricey destination to visit, what with souvenir shops by the dozens, and tasty food choices no matter where you turn. But saying that Tokyo is expensive need not necessarily be true.
We believe that you can always choose whether or not your trip to the land of sushi, ramen and all things kawaii is going to be painful to the wallet or not. Tokyo has many affordable yet impressive dining options within the city.
Ganso Zushi—a Kaitenzushi chain in Tokyo—is one such place. It is not a name as frequently mentioned when people talk about dining in Tokyo, but it is definitely one which serves fresh sushi at incredibly affordable prices.
Is it your turn to host lunar dinner this Chinese New year or are you thinking of bringing an auspicious gift along when you go for your house visits? While we prep for all the upcoming parties, the common “problem” is—what should we cook/ buy?
Well, not everyone is made for the kitchen and we know how much hassle it is to whip up an entire dinner or even just a dish for pot-luck. This is when takeaways save us.
Enjoy a fuss-free lunar celebration with Chinese New Year takeaways from Grand Hyatt Singapore’s shop at mezza9 from now until 11 Feb 2017. Toss to a greater year with yu sheng takeaways (S$51.35 nett) and munch on a wide array of homemade cookies, tarts and other festive delights. These lunar goodies are so beautifully packaged, they would surely be befitting for all your house parties. READ ON
