Colbar's been pretty much a piece of history by itself, with its past stretching to the 1950s; way past most of our time. Built originally to serve British soldiers, the bar eventually stayed on even after Singapore's independence. The original location of Colbar was moved to facilitate the building of PIE, with it being dismantled and rebuilt at its current location not far from where it used to stand. Much of the colonial flavour still retains; old photos, plastic seats and wooden boards are all over the restaurant. Expect no fancy fare here; it's all no gimmicks serving rather mediocre but clean-tasting food that's all simple yet delightful, seemingly as though using recipes way back in their heydays as well.

For those of us who are familiar with kato rice and the yummilicious taste of our childhood kinda food, try Sinpopo. The curry veg was cold, otherwise would have been close to 10/10. Verdict? Food: 8/10. Ambience: 9/10

Known for their Hakata-style ramen, Uma Uma serves only 2 types of ramen, the Uma Uma Ramen ($14) and the Spicy Chasiu Ramen ($16). The noodles are thin, straight and silky, and the tonkotsu broth is thick, dark, rich, and salty. If you have space, their Chasiu Rice is super tasty!

A couple of talented Singaporeans decided that ramen can be served at hawker prices, $5/6/7, and created this delightful version. Think springy wanton noodles coated in a garlic, ginger, onion infused oil, wantons, soy-flavoured hot spring egg, slices of melt-in-your-mouth chashu, and shrimp wrapped in crispy potato. This creative dish certainly is half the price, but easily as satisfying. Of course, don't expect this to replace your usual ramen!

This beautiful new concept from Bali has taken over Keong Saik's iconic Tong Ah Kopitiam, and is thankfully serving great food in an inviting space. Tuck into a Three Buns burger on the whimsical second floor, and move upstairs to the third floor bar for a drink, or the rooftop garden if the weather permits.

Good news for those who have missed Chef Shen Tan's signature Nasi Lemak, you can savour it again at the newly opened Ujong. Of course, other dishes are worth a try too, but be prepared to pay quite a bit more than you're used to, with dishes averaging $20 a pop! Here's what Tastemaker Rachel says about the Hae Bee Hiam Mentaiko Capellini- "One of my favourite dishes here has to be this: thin coils of pasta emollient with garlic-and-prawn-stock butter, dotted with crispy lardons, and slicked with an unexpectedly creamy dried shrimp and mentaiko paste. Keep a glass of water on hand because this dish packs a hefty dose of heat."

We had fried rice, sambal kangkong and butter chicken. Butter chicken is to die for! It's $5.0 for a serving of one with rice on side, and $10 for a plate to share.
