Two Chefs Eating Place (Commonwealth): Drunken Cockles

It's not often that you find dishes as good as this at a zi char place, and at only $7 too! Lovers of garlic and seafood will fall in love with these cold cockles flavoured with Hua Tiao Chinese wine and vinegar. As Burppler Dex Neo puts it, "just a quick tug with your chopsticks and you're on your way to Taste Town with its briny, garlicky and chilli flavours."

Mrs Pho (Beach Road): So Huyet Xao Toi

The pho isn't the only amazing dish here. Many Burpplers have raved about the So Huyet Xao Toi ($7.50), or cockles stir-fried with garlic. Burppler Wei Zhi Chiang says "It's sinful but fragrant and savoury, and very easy to keep reaching in for more when the flavours are so well soaked up", referring to the copious amounts of deep-fried pork lard and garlicky, basil goodness. It's usually sold out by 8pm, so you'll want to get there early if you want to savour these babies.

This humble stall hidden away in Teck Ghee Square Market is run by a father-son pair with lots of oomph, and yes, lots of cockles. A plate of char kway teow starts from a humble $3, and  Burppler Jonathan Lim says "Each sinful wok hei laden plate is loaded with cockles & lap cheong (Chinese sausages); certainly worth the calories in my opinion." "Cockle lovers will love the ones here, which are both big and juicy," adds Burppler Alex Chua.

China Tastes: Blood Cockles

When almost every Burppler review talks about the plump cockles ($10.80) here, you know we're on to something. It's simple: "If you like cockles, this is a dish you should not miss. They did it just right, and definitely no sand or weird taste," claims Burppler Clarence Chan. Burppler Shirley Quah also likes to "cheer myself up with one of my favourite comfort food for supper."

Putien: Drunken Cockles

The drunken cockles ($10.90) are a crowd-favourite, with limited quantities available daily. Drizzled with a speciality garlic sauce and topped with generous servings of garlic flakes and chillies, pop these for a burst of sweet, savoury and mildly spicy tastes all at once. Burppler Avis Yap calls it the "Best drunken cockles ever!"

Nana Original Thai Food: Spicy Cockles Salad

Bet you've never had cockles in a salad before. This Spicy Cockles Salad ($10) from Nana Original Thai Food comes fresh in a generous portion, tossed in an appetising mix of spices, herbs, and fish sauce. Burppler Soph Soph says the "Cockles were fresh and sweet. Brings you back to Thailand in the first bite with all the spices used for this dish."

Yes, you read that right. Unlike the blood cockles we typically see in laksa, these cockles (known as Kkomak in Korean) are a bit different. SBCD serves this in a bibimbap style ($24.90) marinated with soy sauce, mirin, garlic, sesame oil, gochugaru, and chilli peppers. "After mixing it with rice, the result is juicy and succulent cockles, bursting with sweet, savoury marinate with a touch of spiciness," raves Burppler Chubbybotakkoala Hence.
