Just look at that pork crackling. So juicy, so fatty, so crispy, so much 😍 And dat sourdough. 'Cause it's quite dense, this sandwich is extremely filling! I dream about that pork.

Tarte by Cheryl Koh is a new patisserie by the Les Amis group, located next to Caveau at Shaw Centre. Specialising in artisanal tarts and carolines (mini eclairs) for takeaway, they have plans to offer more items and desserts in the pipeline. Tarte uses quality ingredients such as Italian hazelnuts and pistachios, and offers its signature tarts in two sizes: small ($8 - $9) and regular ($30 - $34). Go for the Pistachio Tart ($9) with toasted pistachios and pistachio filling, or the Mango Tart with Indian Alphonso Mango ($8)!

Following the success of their Caribbean restaurant Lime House, the folks behind this popular food institution decided to set up Singapore's first Caribbean deli, serving dressed-down versions of the restaurant's popular menu items. Situated in Telok Ayer, Lime Deli offers easy grab-and-go items for takeaways. Meals are affordable, and they also have breakfast, tea time, and early dinner promotions so you don't have to break the bank for delicious Caribbean food. Do make it a point to try their jerk beef burger or jerk chicken!

Marinated assortment of fresh sashimi, tamago, shredded seaweed and topped with toboki served in a rice bowl.

Artichoke is one of those cafes you go to for a full-on meal, and is known for packing in surprising Middle Eastern flavors in the best ways possible. Hidden in a gorgeous courtyard, this gem is perfect for brunch or dinner. Go for the Mezze Platter or Lamb Shakshuka for brunch, and the Sultan's Delight for dinner. Finish off with the baklava samplers from Overdoughs next door. Don't forget to make reservations! Photo by Jayne Tan

This relatively new cafe oozes oodles of industrial-chic goodness, complete with the original Telok Ayer Chung Hwa Free Clinic store front. Dig into My Awesome Salad ($15), which comes with a generous portion of greens, smoked salmon, avocado, chicken breast, duck rilettes and tomatoes for a healthy lunch break. Alternatively, come by for a couple of Happy Hour pints after work! Photo by Votrex Tan

With an obvious passion for serving the freshest food, you'll be guaranteed a wholesome, seductive meal of Nordic goodness, starting with freshly-baked rye and sourdough breads at Gaest. Go for the roast pork sandwich, or the salt-boiled potato sandwich for an unbelievable tasty vegetarian option, or any of their salads. The perfect pick-me-up lunch with a great coffee on a rough day in the CBD! Photo by Alain Foodology

Brunch in this brick-walled space is always a lovely affair, from the ambience to the well-executed food. Favourites include the Flan ($23), pork cheek confit with sauteed mushrooms, a perfectly poached egg, and a mountain of rocket sitting in a light pastry shell. The truffle fries are so delightful, it's worth popping by anytime you're in the neighborhood! Finish off with their decadent waffles. Photo by Jennifer Yeo

brunches are my weak spot but dessert are my weakest! happy!
