This pasta is evenly coated in a luscious, thick laksa gravy, with bits of dried shrimps adding an addictive crunch and saltiness.

Offerings include De Molen from the Netherlands and the epic Mikkeller from Denmark, with prices at an average of $8-9 for 250ml and $15-17 for 500ml. Wait till you feel the kick these craft beauties give you!


Arnold's has been around for more than 30 years, and for good reason. Just look at that perfectly fried chicken! Pro tip: order takeaway to escape the hour-long wait and sit at the nearby hawker. Also ask for extra gravy to dip the skin in. Really.


The folks at Merely Ice Cream are generous with their servings — even their sampling spoon portions are huge! Go for the Red Velvet, or the elusive Breakfast Cereal if you're lucky.


A satisfying rice bowl consisting of very tasty pulled pork, pickled ginger and shiitake, spring onions and that oh-so-sexy signature 72 degree onsen egg.

Topped with fresh blueberries and strawberries, and irresistibly priced considering its refinement. Also go for their swiss rolls (from $1.20)!


The springiness of these homemade noodles need to be sampled to be believed. Go for the roast pork option, or the minced pork for a less guilty meal! Also have their yummy meatball soup, priced attractively at $7.90.

Probably one of the cheapest chirashi bowls you can get in Singapore, but wait, what's the catch? These babies are limited at only 10 bowls a day!


The top picks, popular finds and newly opened places in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, curated by Burpple editors!
