Nakajima Suisan Grilled Fish at Takashimaya’s Japanese food court is one of the places that I usually go to when I want a quick-fix in town. The prices of the set meals — choose from Salmon Teriyaki ($12.50), Gindara Teriyaki ($14.50), and Shio Saba ($7.50) — are pocket-friendly. If you are meeting your friends in Orchard Road, head here for a simple and satisfying meal.

From a stall in a coffee shop to a full-fledged restaurant at Purvis Street, Saveur Restaurant has done a good job serving inexpensive French food. The long line of hungry patrons during meal times is a testament to its popularity. But does Saveur live up to the hype? Is it worth queuing up?
While cafes are sprouting out everywhere these days – most with predictable and mediocre brunch, Selfish Gene Cafe at Craig Road stands out for their consistency in delivering good comfort food.

Dining out is an expensive affair, and nowadays, it is very difficult to find a decent restaurant/cafe which has main courses for under $20. However, if you know where to go, there are still some hidden gems that are waiting to be discovered.
Here is a list of Singapore’s Top 20 Inexpensive Restaurants where you can go for a good meal, even on a budget.
Nakhon Kitchen has gained a reputation for serving good, authentic Thai food at reasonable prices. It is not unusual to see a queue forming outside the shop during dinner time. So does it live up to the hype?
It is not my practice to write about new restaurants/cafes immediately after their opening; I have a policy of a three months buffer. But Kith Cafe has been around for a long time, so I thought it would be of no harm to share about their new outlet at Park Mall.
I like the new Kith Cafe. Since its opening last month, I’ve been there a few times, and it has quickly become my favourite hangout place in Orchard Road.
Whether it’s green chicken curry you are craving, or pad thai, tom yum or green mango salad, Nana Thai at Golden Mile Complex has it all. And the best part? The food is authentic and very affordable. Something tells me that I will be a regular at this humble Thai eatery.
Nowadays, it is quite impossible to find a decent place to eat in Orchard Road. The cost of a meal in a food court in town is easily at least SGD$4-6. So when my friends told me about this famous chicken rice stall at Far East Plaza which serves relatively-affordable and good chicken rice, I decided to go there for lunch to see what’s the hype about.
Hainanese Delicacy Chicken Rice is located on level five of Far East Plaza, just a five minutes walk from the main shopping belt. The run down coffee shop has several tables within a long narrow space; there’s always a queue throughout the day – a testimony of their popularity.
So is the chicken rice really that good? Is it worth queuing up for? Let’s find out.
