Mama Noodle Basil Chicken ($4.50) SAP Thai is one of the best "hidden gems" for Thai food in Singapore; you probably wouldn't know about it if you don't frequent the CBD. The noodles in this dish is super springy while still absorbing the wok-stirred goodness of basil, minced chicken, chilli, fish sauce and dark sauce. The sunny side up is also crisp at the edges with the yolk still runny. Ask for "less spicy" so that you can enjoy your meal with their homemade sambal cincalok - one of the best you'd have tasted. Thumbs up, hands down, 10/10 amazing Thai food, at only $4.50! Opens Mon-Fri 10am to 9pm

Value For Money Thai Food Folks in the CBD! Sap Thai (Mon-Fri, 1000-2100 hours) at Amoy Food Centre is a great option if we are craving for something hot and spicy as it serves hearty yet so affordable Thai grub. Want to place an order for your office lunch party? You can do so by dialing 9722 1235 before 1130. We had the Thai Basil Mama Noodles ($4.50), Tom Yum Fried Rice ($4.50), Green Curry Chicken ($4.50) and Sliced Fish Tom Yum Soup ($5) — All these for just under $20!! The mama noodles with Thai basil chicken was my favorite. Yes, it might be instant noodles but don't we just secretly love it? I like that it comes with a sunny side up and chilli padi that spices things up! The green curry was extremely creamy and fragrant served with a generous amount of chicken. The stall claims that no MSG are used in their food but it was on the salty side for me. Even so, it was so yummy and I'm already thinking of a return visit!

Thai Beef Soup + Noodles Ordered Thai beef soup ($4.00) with additional noodle ($0.50)。 surprised to find this here as you don't really see Thai beef soup much in sg. Soup was rich, beef was really tender and noodle was chewy and nicely cooked. They were really generous with both noodles and meat for the price! Definitely coming back to try new dishes (their basil chicken rice looks AMAZEEEEE)

pulut tekan and sugee cake @ sunset railway cafe tea break because food like these. is like atasfied kopitiam tea break but you don't mind the extra bucks at all. pulut tekan ($4), a peranakan glutinous rice cake here is paired with their home made artisan kaya here - it was light, very soothing, and that mellowed sweetness that you forget you are downing glutinous rice shot one after another. sugee cake ($4.80) is another their signature - coarser almonds here lends a hearty bite to this rich cake with a lemon drizzle that complements it so well. best to down one bite with a sip of your favourite heartland kopi each time!

Pulut Tekan + Kaya Posted this once, and that was the very first time I have walked into Sunset Railway Cafe. When the craving for Kueh kicks in and you need a spot near school to have a quick coffee break that has local Kopi and WiFi — Sunset Railway Cafe is just the spot I would end up hitting. Essentially like a Kueh Salat, but you get to smear the eggy blob of Kaya (which acts like a Pandan mousse that is on a Kueh Salat) atop the beautiful diamonds of Glutinous Rice speckled with blue hues of the Butterfly Pea all by yourself. Each portion of glutinous rice comes tacky with a good bite; certainly a good item to pair alongside a cup of Kopi while working on the laptop over their WiFi.

Nasi Lemak ($7.50 with drink) Quite surprised by how this went! Sure, the long grain rice isn't quite as flavourful as Selera Rasa but I must say I am impressed with the lightness and fluffiness of the rice without being too heavy in flavour – makes it actually very easy to finish. The sambal was sweet without trying to set fire to the tongue, yet carries a easy amount of spiciness to handle. Most stuff on the plate are pre-prepared before serving, hence could be rather lukewarm, but I liked the Rendang Chicken most; succulent and tender with a flavours of the spices prominent for it wasn't overwhelmingly spicy. Quite a good place to hit for lunch and to work on some assignments over their free WiFi during that odd four-hour break in between lectures.

Kaisen Bijin Nabe🍲($68) If this looks familiar, then you've probably tried the uhhhhmazing chicken version from Tsukada Nojo (which is a place I can keep going to). 😋Yonpachi specializes in seafood, so you can imagine how excited I was when I heard they're doing a seafood version of the chicken collagen hotpot! So the soup here uses the chicken collagen infused with their seafood broth, giving it a saltier, briny taste. It's also not as thick and hearty as before, which led me to the conclusion that I preferred the pure chicken version. (Also note that there's no refills here at all, with each top-up carrying a $5 price tag) Ingredients wise, we weren't impressed. The clams dropped out of their shells, dooming many to a sad fate of overcooking. The crab was quite hollow and the prawn balls tough. I wanted to love this but unfortunately, I'll just be heading back to Tsukada Nojo. (The bar bites and small plates here seem really good though, perfect for a night of boozing and sake!) 🍶

Kaisen Bijin Nabe Kaisen Bijin Nabe ($68) If "Bijin Nabe" rings a familiar bell, that's cos @yonpachi_sgp is part of the group which brought us our all-time favourite bijin nabe! Pictured here is a variant of the pure chicken stock collagen. The chicken stock is boiled for up to 8 hours till the bones melt and then mixed with their rich seafood soup to get this super yums broth. Being a soup addict, the entire hotpot was devoid of soup when we were done. That's how delicious it was! Do note though that the ingredients here are more seafood based and was not as filling as its chicken counterpart at Tsukada Nojo. Also, there was no complimentary refill for the soup.

Crab Butter Bread 🦀($8.80) Oh my tian. 🤤Oh my arteries. 😂This seemingly simple combo of the best part of a crab mixed with mayo on crisp bread took me on a seaside joyride! It was like mentaiko mayo on steroids and almost every table there had a plate of these suckers. If I'm coming back, it'll be for the small plates and various dishes but not the bijin nabe that pales to their chicken version. 👆

FAT SQUID ALERT!! Saw recommendations online to try this so we did and it was yummy, sans the fact that we actually doggie bagged this and had it almost 30mins later, resulting in it being less crispy than it was. Nevertheless, the squid was fat and chewy but a tad pricey I feel.

Drunk On Happiness This Drunkard Noodle Pork is one of the more unique Thai food I've had! Kway teow soaked in what seems like basil pork sauce, this simple dish is kickass spicy, tasty but can come across as a little too salty (for me). But have no fear, Thai milk tea is here! Extinguish the flames with the ice cold Cha Yen. A major plus point is that it is not too sweet!

Drunkard Noodle Pork ($7.90) from Kra Pow - every now and then when I think about having Thai food, my mind automatically flash to a plate of these flat kway tiao stir fried with basil pork. Looks ordinary, but it taste a-may-zinggggg. Super super fragrant (especially when they state no msg is added) though just abit on the oilier side, but that also made it much more tastier. Already can't wait for the next chance to order the whole plate for myself.

Squid Tentacle Fritters These were pretty fantastic — honestly quite stoked how similar these tasted to Old Chang Kee's Fried Octopus OnStick in flavour but delightfully thin and crisp batter which makes them even more addictive to have. The chili lime aioli gave just a manageable and light kick in terms of spiciness, but also a tinge of sweetness that made these already delicious morsels of squid tentacles even more appetising!

For Quality Western in a Coffeeshop Located next to Yuhua Village Market & Food Centre, this evening-time Western stall (they only operate from 4:30 to 10:30pm) turns out some really quality plates that belie its coffeeshop setting. Most dishes are under $20, and they certainly don't skimp on the portion sizes. You won't go wrong with their steaks, which they do pretty well. Try the Striploin ($20), perfectly grilled and served with a side of ratatouille that Tastemaker Fabian Poon is a fan of. Alternatively, consider the Fish and Chips ($9.50), which sees an almost grease-free, lightly battered fish paired with a house-made tartare sauce; or the fall-off-the-bone Sticky Pork Ribs ($16) served with a tangy orzo salad that Tastemaker Emily S felt paired really well together. Pro tip: Bring enough cash, as they neither accept NETS nor credit card. Avg Price: $15 per person Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Fabian Poon

Great But No More Couscous Norwegian Salmon Steak ($16.50 nett) One of my usual favourite dishes except different this time - I think when they revamped their menu, they replaced couscous with Orzo Salad? & also it is now more expensive? Still a great steak though, but old-timers beware the lack of couscous 😔 💵 Cash only 🚫 NO NETS OR CREDIT CARDS ☀ Alfresco seats only 🍻 3 pints of beer for $30 nett 💤 Long queues at peak hour 👍 #BurppleBestofJurong

Fall Off The Bone Sticky Pork Ribs ($16 nett) Tender, almost fall-off-the-bone ribs. Good flavours, I'd order this again. I've never paired pork ribs with Orzo Salad, but it was tangy & went quite well together. 💵 Cash only 🚫 NO NETS OR CREDIT CARDS ☀ Alfresco seats only 🍻 3 pints of beer for $30 nett 💤 Long queues at peak hour 👍 #BurppleBestofJurong

Surprisingly Filling Tuna Salad Nicoise ($14 nett) I'd been eating all freaking day, so it was time to go for this salad that I'd always been curious about, but never tried because I was always starving when I come here & ain't nobody got time fo salads when hangry. Turns out this is more filling than I expected it to be! Not as much as a pasta dish, obviously.. But quite substantial. Could be the many salad leaves, could be the potato chunks. I wish they put the dressing to the side, though. If I order this again, I will be sure to ask of this. 💵 Cash only 🚫 NO NETS OR CREDIT CARDS ☀ Alfresco seats only 🍻 3 pints of beer for $30 nett 💤 Long queues at peak hour 👍 #BurppleBestofJurong

Za'atar Pita, Homemade Hummus One of my favourite places to stop by for a delicious snack. This places supplies the best pita in the country to some of the best restaurants, so you know you're in for a treat! My favorites are the wholemeal and za'atar pitas, served warm alongside their superbly creamy hummus. Say yes when he asks if you take spicy, and you'll be rewarded with a lovely dusting of chili powder. Loaded with whole chickpeas and hard boiled eggs, this was divine. I also loved the really simple, no frills environment, just sitting along the walkway at Bali Lane and snacking on these beauties 👌🏻

Pita (from $1) & Homemade Hummus (from $5 for 100g) I’ve walked past this section several times but sadly never once noticed this bakery. 💔 Apparently, it’s been here for three years(!!) and they bake some of the most uhmayzing pita bread on the island daily and supply various hotels and restaurants including Common Man Coffee Roasters and Fat Prince. You can purchase fresh pita from their in-house assortment — white ($1), wholemeal ($1.50), sesame seeds, garlic, za’atar ❤️❤️, Spicy New Orleans/cajun ($2.20 for any with toppings) — along with various dips to enjoy on the spot or to take home (they’re on Deliveroo too!). Oh, and they don’t use canned chickpeas for their hummus; they soak the chickpeas overnight to soften before cooking instead. So next time you’re planning a mezze party or craving for good pita and spreads, you know where to go!
