I’ve promised to tell you about Aroy Dee Thai Restaurant when I blogged about Thai Gold Food at Sunshine Plaza, so here it is. To keep the long story short, both Thai eateries at Sunshine Plaza serve cheap and good Thai Food.
Today, I am going to share with you something else, though. Not the weekend brunch, but the Weekend High Tea Set that Spruce has launched. And it is only $14++/pax $21++/pax.
“Where can I find the best food in Singapore?” I get this question from overseas visitors all the time. Forget about the fine dining restaurants, or the best cafes in Singapore. If you have limited time during your trip here, just go for the hawker food – it is definitely one of the things to do in Singapore.
I am sure many Singaporeans living in the West are familiar with Jurong West Food Centre. It emerged the winner in the Favourite Hawker Centre category of City Hawker Food Hunt 2010 through an islandwide SMS vote.
This guide to the best cafes in Singapore was last updated on 26 October 2014.
Cafés have different interpretations in different countries. In the American context, a café or coffee house is a casual restaurant serving proper food and sandwiches. Whilst a café in other countries is simply a place that serves coffee with light snacks/desserts. Who can resist the lovely smell of brewing coffee, the chic display of desserts on cake stands, and the cosy ambiance of a cafe?
Here is our guide to the best cafes in Singapore:
De Burg Burger (formerly known as Sunshine @ Carries Cafe) used to be located in a condominium at Farrer Drive. It recently shifted operations to a coffee shop at Ghim Moh (Updated: Bukit Merah). My hunt for the best burger in Singapore led me to De Burg after two of my friends told me that they had very good burgers here.
There are many options for Thai Food in Singapore, and Ah Loy Thai restaurant is definitely one of the best when it comes to cheap and good Thai Food.
Even though Ah Loy Thai does not have nice ambiance like the other Thai fine dining restaurants, it serves good Thai food at very affordable prices. We are talking about $5-10 for most of the items on their menu (plus they don’t have GST and service charge). The prices here are even cheaper than some of the Thai Eateries at Golden Mile Complex.
Chin Mee Chin confectionery at East Coast Road is one of the few old-school coffee shops left in Singapore. I’m sure most of you are familiar with Chin Mee Chin (CMC) since many of the Singapore Food Blogs have written on them before. In many ways, CMC reminds me of the popular Yut Kee in Kuala Lumpur.
Sometimes, I think we take Kaya Toast for granted. This humble breakfast food is simple, yet so delicious, and it is often overlooked because it is so common in Singapore. From places like Ya Kun Kaya Toast, Killiney, Good Morning Nanyang Cafe, to the local coffee shops – good kaya toasts are everywhere in Singapore.
Nasi Lemak is definitely one of the must-try hawker food in Singapore. Like what I’ve mentioned previously, there are a few nasi lemak stalls in Singapore that have platinum status (and perpetually long queues): the famous Changi Village Nasi Lemak, the two rivaling Adam road Nasi Lemak stalls, Fong Seng Nasi Lemak, Chong Pang Nasi Lemak, the popular Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak, and of course Punngol Nasi Lemak.
