And All Things Delicious offers a wide variety for halal-certified bakes such as brownies, galettes, cakes and scones. To satisfy just about everyone, they have both sweet and savoury scones -- gula melaka, cheese, and onion. The bakers here insists on using unprocessed ingredients such as unsalted butter and organic ingredients in order to make their bakes taste more "natural". This certainly shows, as diners get to enjoy clean yet flavourful treats.

If you're in the Katong area, check out Tash Tish Tosh for reasonably priced Western food. Much raved about here are the buffalo wings, which are slightly spicy and tangy. Their thin crust pizzas are popular as well. Generously topped with mozzrella, these pizzas are not for the faint-hearted. The pizza dough and tomato sauce are both made in-house from scratch; popular flavours include the Meathead and Hawaiian. For something slightly healthier, opt for their customizable subs!

Mackenzie Rex has been around since 1966 and has a loyal following -- for all the right reasons. The star here is undoubtedly the Hainanese Chicken Rice. The chicen is flavoudful and perfectly cooked, served alongside fragrant rice paired with slightly acidic, fiery chilli. Other dishes you can find on the menu are pretty much zi char dishes. Popular are the baby squid -- deep fried and tossed in a slightly sticky sweet sauce -- and the chilli crab and black pepper crab.

Dahlia Cafe, a humble stall, "commands a queue during lunchtime because people love it for the lip-smackingly good rice and noodle dishes that are cooked only upon order", says Tastemaker Veronica Phua. Expect simple dishes like nasi goreng kampong and nasi ayam. This place is great if you want unpretentious comfort food to fill your tummy, fast. A little sinful perhaps, but sometimes nothing hits the spot quite like a plate of greasy, spicy, slightly sweet macaroni goreng.

Flavour Flings is tucked in Hougang, and brings hearty brunch offerings to residents of the area. Recycled-wood furnishings give this place a laid-back vibe, perfect for casual brunch affairs. Menu items include poached/ baked/ fried eggs, a variety of pastas, as well as pancakes. They serve pretty good desserts as well - Tastemaker Chua Xing Wei says "their Creme brûlée comes full with crackling melted sugar on the top, which cracks with a knock with the spoon to reveal its custardy, eggy inside."
