And All Things Delicious offers a wide variety for halal-certified bakes such as brownies, galettes, cakes and scones. To satisfy just about everyone, they have both sweet and savoury scones -- gula melaka, cheese, and onion. The bakers here insists on using unprocessed ingredients such as unsalted butter and organic ingredients in order to make their bakes taste more "natural". This certainly shows, as diners get to enjoy clean yet flavourful treats.

If you're in the Katong area, check out Tash Tish Tosh for reasonably priced Western food. Much raved about here are the buffalo wings, which are slightly spicy and tangy. Their thin crust pizzas are popular as well. Generously topped with mozzrella, these pizzas are not for the faint-hearted. The pizza dough and tomato sauce are both made in-house from scratch; popular flavours include the Meathead and Hawaiian. For something slightly healthier, opt for their customizable subs!

Mackenzie Rex has been around since 1966 and has a loyal following -- for all the right reasons. The star here is undoubtedly the Hainanese Chicken Rice. The chicen is flavoudful and perfectly cooked, served alongside fragrant rice paired with slightly acidic, fiery chilli. Other dishes you can find on the menu are pretty much zi char dishes. Popular are the baby squid -- deep fried and tossed in a slightly sticky sweet sauce -- and the chilli crab and black pepper crab.

I Am Cafe has gained widespread popularity since their opening, attracting diners by the dozen to their humble, airy space at the head of Haji Lane. Their unexpectedly good food is what brings diners back again and again, especially for their perfectly battered and fried fish and chips and their simple beef burgers. Perfect for small group gatherings, there's even a great vegetarian option -- the pesto portobello burger. Split a decadent Chocolate Salted Caramel slice to end off your meal!

J's restaurant continues to offer good Latin American-inspired food such as tortillas, enchiladas and burritos while boasting an ambience suitable for group gatherings and date nights. Start your meal with their scrambled eggs with salmon, move on to the Adobo chicken or the braised lamb shank - both are fork-tender and flavourful. For dessert, go for the bread and butter pudding studded with white chocolate and topped with peaches and vanilla gelato. If you're a vegetarian, fret not! The wonderful people at J's will gladly accommodate your dietary requests.

Studio Cafe SG is a new addition to Toa Payoh's buzzing food scene. Alongside local dishes like nasi goreng and nasi ayam penyet, expect western dishes like sirloin steak, pasta and even mussels. The food here is reasonably priced and there is no GST or service charge, so if you're looking for good food without breaking the bank, give this place a try!

Dahlia Cafe, a humble stall, "commands a queue during lunchtime because people love it for the lip-smackingly good rice and noodle dishes that are cooked only upon order", says Tastemaker Veronica Phua. Expect simple dishes like nasi goreng kampong and nasi ayam. This place is great if you want unpretentious comfort food to fill your tummy, fast. A little sinful perhaps, but sometimes nothing hits the spot quite like a plate of greasy, spicy, slightly sweet macaroni goreng.

Flavour Flings is tucked in Hougang, and brings hearty brunch offerings to residents of the area. Recycled-wood furnishings give this place a laid-back vibe, perfect for casual brunch affairs. Menu items include poached/ baked/ fried eggs, a variety of pastas, as well as pancakes. They serve pretty good desserts as well - Tastemaker Chua Xing Wei says "their Creme brûlée comes full with crackling melted sugar on the top, which cracks with a knock with the spoon to reveal its custardy, eggy inside."

Although FIX is known for their naanwiches and donuts with salted egg dip, it would be a shame if you missed out on their stellar desserts and crispy soy drumlets. These drumlets are the perfect combination of salty, spicy and crispy -- a must-order item! To sate your sweet tooth, go for the butterscotch arabica choux ($6) -- a crumbly, light choux pastry filled with salted butterscotch and topped with coffee cream. For something light, their passionfruit, mango and coconut chiffon cake ($7) is a sure win.

While some feel the briyani here is overpriced ($8 for chicken, $10 for mutton), and the place is a little run down, it is definitely worth a visit. This dum briyani is cooked and served traditionally, without any curry, but every bit aromatic. It's also healthier with the omission of ghee, so you can feel a tiny bit less guilty. If you're there on a Sunday, Monday or Thursday, opt for the kid goat briyani, tender meat without gamey flavour, under a pile of fragrant rice and fried onions. Photo by Michel Lu

Tired of stale, limp, oily kosongs that totally don't hit the spot? That's cos so many places in Singapore now use prata dough that comes premade and from an evil cardboard box. If you want the real deal, this is the place. Small but superbly crispy plain pratas that you can't stop eating, dunked in glorious fish curry, or sambal if you prefer. This will satisfy any prata craving you have. Photo by Joyz X.

With no distinct signboard and a snaking long queue under a HDB block, you know you've found something special. Having taken over from their father's stall, these brothers run a tight ship at Blk 17 Beach Rd, doling out packet after packet of briyani as people order takeaway in the dozens. If you've got the time, sit and enjoy your tender mutton and amazing gravy... this is a serious briyani. Photo by Jayne Tan
