Chico Loco, a casual-chic restaurant from the Super Loco and Lucha Loco team, is another great spot to get down and dirty with Mexican foods. Head down for their new dinner menu with table service if you’ve already tried and loved their signature rotisserie chickens.

Begin your meaty meal with Taco de Mysterio, a soft corn tortilla stuffed with secret contents, then dig into their Beef Fillet Steak, a slab of porcini-rubbed Angus fillet amped up with anchi chilli mayo. As for desserts, how about crisp Churros dunked in spiced Mexican chocolate.

Customer Testimonial

Excellent place on Amoy. Really enjoyed the chilled vibe.
Ordered the fish taco, quarter chicken and mango passionfruit juice.
Everything came out very quickly.
I was surprised the fish taco was only the 1 taco. Tacos should come in pairs at least at that size.
Fish was cooked perfectly and crunchy.
Chicken was cooked well and very moist. The dry rub has a good flavour.
This place understand environmentalism – no plastic to be seen, metal utensils and water in a glass bottle.

Beverages are refreshing- Longan Osmanthus and Passionfruit Ginger Soda

Great atmosphere, great service.

The overall dining experience is one of the best I got in Singapore. Try the mocktail pairing with the meal. There was so much effort and though in its preparation that makes it so much more interesting than just having the meal with wine. Food presentation and preparation was almost flawless.

Unlike most Korean barbecue restaurants that utilize gas grills, Wang Dae Bak distinguishes itself from the competition by providing charcoal grills, giving the restaurant’s BBQ dishes a distinctive smoky flavor.

Is there anything else we don’t have any gripes about? Free flow egg. You may cook the egg bath surrounding the BBQ plate by having servers pour an egg mixture into a moat surrounding it. But if you’d rather not deal with the work of cooking food yourself, Wang Dae Bak provides a hearty Korean cuisine that includes army stew and kimchi pancake.

Food was excellent, service was superb. My friend and i shared the Christmas menu and a regular lunch menu. They made sure we had our own platter each time so we could sample from both, and took notice to change the platter regularly. Excellent quality of food for the price! At the end, the Christmas menu was entitled to a free gift, but they offered the gifts to both of us. Very sweet of them. Highly recommended!! ⭐

Along Amoy Street, in the city’s historic core, it is the little things that impress at Kenjiro “Hatch” Hashida’s third, and most recent, iteration of his eponymous restaurant.

The interior is graced with elegant fixtures and personal touches, which begins the journey. Enter through the torii gates and take a seat in one of three dining rooms, each with its own distinct atmosphere. In the eight-seater room, a traditional detached roof peeks through, while an ancient 200-year-old sakura wood beam frames.

  • Celebrity Chef Kenjiro ‘Hatch’ Hashida

Customer Testimonial

Very very good meal and pleasant experience. Every dish was well prepared , balanced and refined. Little details from the use of Gin pepper on Sushi to caramelized sauce on their signature Monkfish liver has demonstrated effort to bring the flavors to a next level. Service was top notch – other than very attentive staff, the restaurant was also very generous to offer sampling of three sake before I picked my preferred choice. Go Hashida, you won’t regret.

Muslim-owned The Bravery is ready to begin a new chapter after seven years at Lavender Street. It begins with a move from Jalan Besar’s modest café space to a two-story shophouse on Amoy Street.

It almost has the feel of a rite of passage. The entrance is no longer covered in neon color-blocked plastic sheets. Natural light now comes in through subtle, deliberate ways, thanks to lime green banquette seats paired with brown rattan seatings and plenty of open space.

Upside Down Coffee Roaster was founded in 2017 and operates as a self-sustaining coffee stand in the middle of the Central Business District, supplying non-pretentious and high-quality in-house roasted coffee to the working crowd.

Take a coin and you’ve got two sides: heads or tails. While the side that faces up is generally simple to spot, sometimes looking at the underside can provide a different viewpoint and put you in a new perspective. Thus, Upside Down always strives to look at and approach coffee from that standpoint as much as possible.

Key Differentiators

  • Established in 2017
  • Operates as a self-sustaining coffee stand in the heart of the CBD
  • Providing focused, yet flexible coffee to the working crowd

Just love everything about this place.

Upside down is very unique for thier alcohol infused/treated coffee. Big fan of unagi blend and some of the new blends, as well

Lovely experiences and Innovative flavours. I enjoyed the tenderness of the beef cheeks and subtle flavour combi with red wine. French toast with squid is a must try. The seafood sauce was so delicious they you won’t able to stop the bread with it. Mala prawn pasta was nice balanced with spiciness and the sauce.
I was spontaneously trying the newly created sesame latte. It was so tasty.
Attentive service and suburb chilling ambiance. They have unexpected creative daily specials so don’t be shy to ask. Highly recommended!

A Noodle Story is a Singaporean restaurant serving ramen noodles in the style of the country. While the signature here is called “ramen,” it’s like a local take on Hong Kong wonton noodles in soup. The signature of ‘A Noodle Story’ is based on contemporary European techniques and Asian tastes.

Customer Testimonial

Wow, this is really something else! The noodles were amazing with very distinct and flavorful seasonings and chilli (must try), and the sliced pork is the kind that readily melts in your mouth; also, it’s coated with a layer of savoury fried bits that gave it an extra dimension of flavor which really added to the overall taste. The broth was deeply flavorful and the dumplings were juicy and generously stuffed with tender minced pork and plump shrimps – the kind that I’d only expect to find in a dim sum restaurant. Really satisfying experience considering both quality and price. Definitely highly recommended.

Other dishes include the Sin Chow Bee Hoon, Yang Zhou Fried Rice, and Beef Horfun, but it’s the Beef Horfun that draws people in.

You can’t really gripe about the serving size, as you see how much beef is included. The beef was thinly sliced, very delicate and delicious, and served in a thick dark sauce. Even the rice noodles had a wonderful savory taste.

Key Differentiators

  • Popular hawker stall
  • Generous servings
  • Great customer service

Customer Testimonial

The fried beef hor fun and wet hor fun is out of this world. I’ve been going back again and again especially for the taste of ‘wok hei’ and the tenderness of the beef. The green chillies that comes with this dish range from medium to high spiciness so be warned! Auntie of this stall is nice and they are extremely quick as well. Price point and the amount is just pure worth. Two thumbs up!

Operating HoursMonday to Friday:

The first (and other) curry puff in Singapore to appear in the Michelin Bib Gourmand Guide. This is a buttery, flaky pastry stuffed with spicy potato, black pepper chicken, sardine and yam paste fillings. The J2 puffs were made on the spot, deep-fried in a wide wok of oil, and smothered in a fragrant and spicy sauce.

Key Differentiators

  • Bakery
  • Restaurant
  • Famous Hawker Stall

Customer Testimonial

Most probably the best Curry Puff in Singapore and one of 2 curry puff stalls listed in MICHELIN Guide 2021 Singapore Bib Gourmand Selection.

Unlike the usual fried curry puffs, J2’s crispy curry puffs flakes out like any western puff pastry. The potato filling is grind to a creamy paste and it melts in your mouth.

Highly recommended

  • Order online

Customer Testimonial

Really good coffee, not too acidic and has a light fragrance to it!

Albeit being priced at a premium in a hawker centre, at $3.90 for those drinks that comes with milk, we are contributing to a social cause for every purchase! Each cup comes with a story of its own, and from my understanding, $0.50 off each cup is returned to those in need

Remarkable concept, will definitely patronise in future if I’m in the area

The longest lines at the Boat Street Market are undoubtedly Han Kee Fish Soup, with wait times that can reach an hour during peak hours. Is it worth it? Without a doubt.

The fish soup at this authentic Hong Kong diner is some of the best in town, with a clear, fragrant, and clean-tasting broth; thick, firm slices of delicate fish; they’re very generous with their portion, and a scattering of fried garlic, spring onions, and coriander to round off.

Key Differentiators

  • Fresh Fish Soup
  • Significant long queue
  • Popular Hawker Stall

Customer Testimonial

A big portion of thick and fresh fish slices with the medium fish bee hoon soup ($7). The soup is just a little too peppery. Consistent over the years. Has easily the longest queue at the hawker centre. Lady who usually takes the orders has a phenomenal memory – able to remember 20-30 orders without writing them down and can remember what you usually order even if you don’t come often and are masked up. The queue moves faster than it looks

You won’t find as many bak zhang stalls around these days, which makes this one all the more unique. The Michelin Bib Gourmand-listed Hoo Kee Rice Dumpling has been making real Hokkien rice dumplings filled with delectable, traditional ingredients since 1948.

For those who are looking for a more unique option, try the classic version, which is filled with pork and roasted chestnuts wrapped in a glutinous rice casing. For people who want a little less fat, there’s also the salted egg yolk filling and mushroom alternative, both of which are highly popular.

Key Differentiators

  • Traditional
  • Authentic
  • Delectable Hokkien Bak Changs

Customer Testimonial

Da Zhang sold here is good! Rice has a incredible texture to it and not too expensive as well!
