For raw fish lovers, nothing is as satisfying as a chirashi don; what is there not to love about a bowl of warm rice that is topped with a smorgasbord of freshly chopped sashimi?
As much as we would love to be able to have this for lunch every day, we are restained by its steep price point. A serving of chirashi don at most places can easily set you back by quite a fair bit due to the use of such premium ingredients. However, not all hope is lost and we are glad to tell you that there are places out there that dish out affordable bowls of this goodness.
After doing a little research, we have here a list of 10 places that serve up stellar bowls of chirashi dons for less than S$20.

When it comes to picking our poison for the night, we prefer something refreshing and crisp, nothing too heavy-bodied that leaves us nursing a hangover the next morning. Introducing Sapporo, an esteemed beer brand in Japan that has been serving premium beers since 1876, all of which have been carefully crafted to perfection.
Sapporo is renowned as the oldest and most famous brewery in Japan that has a long-standing history of its own. They have churned out various signature beers that have quickly gained popularity among the Eastern and Western masses, such as their Sapporo Imported Beer and Sapporo Light Beer, but nothing trumps the king of their beers: Sapporo Premium Beer.
A flagship product, the Sapporo Premium Beer is now one of the best-selling beers in Singapore. It is no wonder why both tourists and locals alike love it: the beer is a light-bodied, hoppy lager that pairs incredibly well with rich, savoury flavours. It also retails for a mere S$10 at Timbre+’s Bottle Shop!
Here are five dishes at Timbre+ that are perfect with everyone’s favourite Sapporo Premium Beer.
It is no secret that food plays an intrinsic part in the lives of many Singaporeans. We are a nation built upon the love of food – be it planning for an elaborate celebratory meal, or looking for a quick bite, the plethora of choices has allowed the average citizen to develop a more discerning palate.
The crux of the issue for most of us lies in the importance we place in the taste of the food above all else. Would you rather indulge in some good ol’ char kway teow or have a bowl of salad? If you picked the former, you are not alone. It is this incessant struggle between tasty and healthy food that the Health Promotion Board (HPB) seeks to address with its latest initiative: The Healthy Bowl Campaign.
Over the following months, more than 30 selected F&B outlets in Singapore will be rolling out healthy wholegrain rice bowls in four appetising flavours: salmon, chicken, turkey, and vegetarian. It doesn’t matter if you are a fitness junkie, a working professional, or a self-proclaimed junk food connoisseur – as long as you are a fan of yummy and honest food, these healthy bowls are perfect for you!
Ask any Singaporean living overseas what Singapore food they miss and we can bet with you that the majority of them would say chicken rice. Chicken rice holds a special place in many of our hearts and it is no mystery why this simple yet flavourful dish has always been a crowd favourite.
We aren’t the only place in the world that has chicken rice though; Bangkok has its own rendition of the dish and while they both may look pretty similar, they do have their differences too.
We tried out Bangkok’s famous Go-Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice on our recent trip to Bangkok and here is how we feel it compared to Singapore’s Hainanese Chicken Rice.
