Find this softserve kiosk in the basement of Plaza Sing. Get the Charcoal Cheese Japanese Softserve with Okinawa Brown Sugar Boba in Wafer Shell ($6.80) for a rich, savoury-sweet dessert topped with chewy pearls. You don't want to skip out on Matcha Dip ($5.30) here! Think luscious and creamy softserve encased within a hardened matcha shell on a cone. Psst. Watch it defy gravity by flipping the cone upside down!

Gather the gang together for a nice night out in this snazzy diner that took over IZY Dining and Bar. For mains, opt for their Wagyu Truffle Don (from $34) that features a beautiful mess of wagyu sukiyaki, shaved truffles and a slow-cooked egg on top of Nanatsuboshi rice from Hokkaido. Otherwise, go for the Prawn Mee Pok ($15.80) that sees two juicy tiger prawns, minced pork, lap cheung, sakura ebi, and an egg in a thick umami-intense broth. Dessert-wise, the Spiced Chocolate ($10) is a winner — think chocolate, five spice, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon all blended into one delightful concoction.

Note this one down for cheap and good lunches in the East. For strong local flavours, order their Laksa Pasta ($12.90) that comes either in spaghetti or penne and is served with four whole prawns in a thick shrimp and garlic base. Big eaters — the generously-portioned Tenderbest Maggie Ayam Goreng ($8.50) comes with a humongous piece of fried chicken and stir-fried noodles will satisfy! Wash it all down with the sweet and unique Gula Melaka Kopi ($2.20).

Perched on the seventh floor of Funan is an urban rooftop farm-restaurant that is home to over 50 types of fruits, flowers, herbs and vegetables. Start by sharing their Charcoal Calamari ($15) that is battered in black tempura and seasoned with kaffir lime, red chilli, rooftop herbs and Japanese garlic aioli. For mains, get the Black Cod Saikyo-Yaki ($38) — think black cod marinated in miso, served with sweet potato crisps, sea grapes, ikura, and pulut hitam furikake. For a fancier night out opt for the 6-Course Omakase Menu ($150) where you can look forward snacks, sashimi, robata, sushi, soup and a dessert.

Good for hearty lunches and post-work drinks, find this no-frills spot on the ground floor of Aperia Mall in Lavender. Get their tender Teriyaki Chicken Leg ($6) or Yakiniku Beef ($6) rice bowls for a quick and hearty lunch option, complete with a wobbly onsen egg to mix into the Atika rice. Once your work day winds down, pop by for craft beers (from $12 per pint) and nibble on some yummy bar bites — Fried Tau Pok ($8) with meat stuffing or the Hakka Platter ($25) with dried oyster pork balls, shiitake mushroom with pork and meatballs for bigger groups.

Experience old Hollywood glamour at its finest at this highly anticipated opening— think oil pantings, dim lighting and brass and gold accents. Helmed by Chef Rishi Naleendra (of Cheek by Jowl fame), you can expect you and your belly to have a stellar experience (5-Course: $168++, 7-course: $198++). Burppler Veronica Phua started on a high with their lush and flavourful oysters "swaddled in betel leaf and grilled... luxuriating in a bath of coconut milk and basil oil, and finished with pops of refreshing finger lime". Chef Rishi pays homage to his Sri Lankan heritage in this dish of sweet Australian Marron with Millet cooked two ways.

Great for business luncheons, this chic Japanese restaurant on Bukit Pasoh makes their dashi-centric meals super accessible thanks to their affordable pricing. Start with their super yummy Half Fried Bonito Fish Jerkey ($14). Order their Shabu Shabu Set Lunch (from $29) that comes with chawanmushi, tsukemono, wasabi konbu, ikura, katsuobushi, dashi rice, dashi ponzu and sesame dips, as well as miso soup — talk about bang for your buck! Choose from a range of meats to centre your set lunch around: Black Angus Beef ($29), Hokkaido Pork ($29), White Fish and Salmon ($39), or the premium A4 Japanese Wagyu ($49++).

Drop by this fast food joint in Wisma Atria for burgers and Korean fried chicken. Order the Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger ($19.50) for a well-balanced creamy, buttery avo and crispy bacon combo, sandwiched together with beef patty, cheese and seared onions between potato buns. Also great is their juicy Bulgogi Hotdog (from $11.60), slathered in a special bulgogi glaze and bulgogi mayo, topped with slices of smoked bacon, sautéed sweet onions, parmesan shavings, chopped English parsley and paprika powder. Treat yourselves to their flavourful Truffle Burger ($21) with real wild truffle shavings, truffle puree, and truffle mayo. Share a side of Honey Chicken ($15.80 for half, $28.20 for whole) that has proven to be extremely addictive. You've been warned!

File this away for breakfast or tea time meetings in Lavender. Think an open concept, with high ceilings and white furnishings with black and brass accents — but serving super affordable local dishes and kopi. Go for the Curry Chicken & Prata Set with Kopi ($6.80) or get their French Loaf with handmade Kaya and Butter Set ($4.50) that comes with a drink and soft boiled eggs. All toast sets come in a generous portion — you might want to share. The kopi is priced affordably from $1.40, for a relaxing cafe experience that won't break the bank!

Sweet tooths, head on down to Bali Lane for a beautiful new Osakan import. Exclusive to Singapore are two yummy flavours that look great but even taste better. The fragrant Peranakan Road ($12.50) features coconut ice cream in a buttermilk bubble waffle slathered in kaya, then topped with sweet potato fresh cream, mango, dragonfruit and mint leaves. Alternatively, their Little SouQ ($13) sees Thai milk tea ice cream wrapped in a chocolate bubble waffle and topped with cream cheese, dried figs, coconut flakes, dates, pumpkin seeds and pretzel.

This new resident in Century Square serves up a killer Brown Sugar Boba Milk ($5.30) with caramelised, uber soft and chewy pearls. Also good is their rich and refreshing Mango Smoothie and Rabbit Panna Cotta ($6.90) that is a delightful blend of mango with red pearls and a detailed rabbit-shaped (agar-agar reminiscent) panna cotta. Expect a queue, it's all the rage right now!

From the folks behind En Sakaba and Aburi-EN comes a new eggy counterpart in NEX. Joining the souffle trend is their cloud-like Caramel Peach Souffle Pancake ($12.80) that ticks all the right boxes: jiggly, light and perfectly eggy. It also helps that the sweetness levels are customisable, with maple syrup served separately in a jug. Savoury dishes are also available, like the simple but delicious Ultimate Egg Rice ($5.80), the 5-Kind Japanese Omelette Skewer ($8.80) and an Okonomiyaki-style Japanese Omelette with Octopus ($9.80).
