You probably didn't expect to see thunder tea rice on the list, but considering how this rice bowl dish is healthy, flavourful AND a lot more affordable than other artisanal grain bowls, we think it certainly deserves a spot! Rich both in fibre and nutrients, the thunder tea rice served at this established local chain is proof that eating well doesn’t always have to come with a hefty price tag. Keep it simple with the Signature Thunder Tea Rice ($5.80). The rice (opt for brown for extra health points) comes topped with chopped up greens, tofu, ikan bills, dried shrimp and preserved radish, and is served with a bowl of thick herbal green tea-based soup. Pour this over the rice for a comforting meal like no other. Pro-tip: Thunder Tea Rice has branches in Toa Payoh HDB Hub, Joo Chiat (this outlet reopens 10 Jan) and Lau Pa Sat.
Avg price: $5 per person
