Besides being a fun place to get properly buzzed, this popular night spot in Clarke Quay is also home to a repertoire of delicious grub. No, this isn’t your typical spam fries and chicken wings sort of menu (although I’m pretty sure they have them too). In fact, I dare go as far as to say that their food rivals some established bistros.

Their beef sliders are rock solid. ‘Nuff said. The patties are cooked to a perfect medium rare and everything component just works so well together from the tanginess of the pickled gherkins, buttery-sweet brioche buns to the creamy melted cheese.

$5.90 for absolute fried chicken heaven in a plate, the Super Value Meal comes with tender, boneless fried chicken, rice and a fried egg.

With fried chicken, waffles and burgers as old school and delicious as this, who even needs over-exorbitant Shake Shack and A&W?

This Thai delicacy sees pork spines served in a savory pig bone broth, accented with fresh lime juice, birds eye chili and cilantro (lots of it).

The meat comes off the bone with relative ease and is very tasty when eaten with the sourish broth. I typically have it with rice until recently when I decided to go all #YOLO and ordered a platter of crispy fried mantou. Trust me, it may seem like your ordinary mantou but somehow they manage to fry it so perfectly golden and crispy that it stands up well by itself. Order it the next time you visit, you’ll be glad you did.

Name me a pork dish more frighteningly alluring than this. Go on, I’ll wait.

A dish that I simply cannot do without when having Sichuan food is a fried mutton. Every place has their own version of preparing it but what I particularly love about Dong Fang Mei Shi Fan Din’s is that they season their mutton with lots of cumin and chili powder which really amps up the savoriness of the dish.

The sweated onions provide sweetness which nicely balances out the saltiness of the mutton and the handful of cilantro tossed in towards the end lends an element of freshness. Pure meaty bliss, that is.

The mala fever is at an all-time-high but what if I told you that mala xiang guo is literally only the tip of Sichuan’s diverse array of delicacies?

Located along North Bridge Road, Dong Fang Mei Shi Fan Dian occupies 2 shophouse spaces and dishes out a full-on array of dishes spanning North-Eastern China. Their menu boasts more than a hundred items but the one thing I always, ALWAYS return for is their Shao kao. Their Shao kao (a barbecued meat on a stick variant) is heavily seasoned in spices and is an excellent snack to have with beer, if not, an accompaniment to your main meal. Pictured here is pig’s intestine, mantou, chicken hearts and chicken thigh meat.
