You'll most likely find this shop in Little india packed to the brim—but don't let that deter you. Queue for the community-favourite Plain Dosa ($5) that Burppler Blueskies Cottonclouds raves to be "really refined...like the Indian version of the French galette!". Delicious spiced potato is encased within a thin, crispy shell made extra fragrant by ghee, and served with turmeric-based sambar and coconut coriander chutney. Other dishes not to be missed include their Pudi Masala Dosa ($7), Uddina Vada ($2) and Poori ($5 for 2)!

Note this spot down for when you are around Bukit Timah. A crowd favourite is the fragrant and juicy Chicken 65 ($6.50) — think popcorn chicken infused with fried curry leaves. For mains, their flavourful Chicken Masala ($5.70) pairs amazingly well with garlic naan and pappadums. Otherwise, share the creamy and tangy Curry Fish Head ($13.80) that is good for four— order some briyani rice to go with it!

Keep this humble eatery on Chander Road in mind for simple authentic South Indian cuisine. Expect a mountain of free-flow rice, curried vegetables, chutney and papadum. Dishes to order include their Dal with Green Pepper and Brinjal, Mutton Rendang and Tumeric Fried Fish (~$7 per pax with meats!). While most diners here eat with their right hand, utensils are available upon request if you prefer. Pro tip: To avoid queuing, come for late lunches (around 2pm) or early dinners (6pm).

Break open the crisp exterior of their Beef Murtabak ($5) to uncover minced meat and egg — served with curry, cucumber and ketchup. They also offer yummy Mutton ($5) and Chicken ($5) version. Customise your murtabak by adding an egg or extra mutton on top of your murtabak (from $2), or get an upgrade by going big with their family-sized portion (from $10) that is good for four.

Find this tiny stall at the junction of Serangoon Road and Norris Road and be treated to the wonderful sight of chapati made fresh. Order a couple of their hot-off-the-pan Azmi Chapatis ($1 per pice) to accompany their delicious meat curries (from $3) and vegetable sides (from $1). Good for sharing is the Minced Mutton Keema ($3.50), the Goat Bone ($5) and their Potato Cauliflower ($1.50). Bring a hungry friend so you can share and feast properly!

Grab your pals and prepare to feast at this prata place at Upper Bukit Timah. Necessary for sharing is the Ultimate Murtabak ($13.50) — it resembles a giant quesedilla with stringy melted mozarrella cheese, mutton, chicken, mushroom and egg, that is extraordinary when paired with vegetarian dal. Don't miss what is possibly the best Mozzarella Portobello Prata ($5) around! Do not leave without sharing their super crispy, savoury sweet Red Bean Prata ($3) — so good.

This famous briyani stall needs no signboard for one to find it—simply look for the snaking queue of hungry patrons and you'll know you're at the right spot! Come for their Mutton Nasi Briyani ($6) which sees fall-off-the-bone tender mutton on fragrant basmati rice doused with gravy and a side of appetizing achar. Pro tip: they start serving at 11:20, so be sure to come earlier! Photo by Burppler Maureen Ow

Drop by this double-storied shophouse on Serangoon Road that's good for conversations over hearty food. Start with their Vadai Set ($3) for crispy yet fluffy, savoury lentil "donuts" served with a side of chutney. For mains, share their Dosai Set ($8.50) for a generously-sized paper dosai accompanied by a varied selection of vegetable curries, sambar, chutney and kulambu. End your meal off on a spicy and sweet note with their Masala Chai ($1.80).

Easties, come by Tampines Junction for an easy cure to Indian rojak cravings. Made fresh, their popular Indian Rojak ($5.50 for min 4 ingredients) is fried to a perfect crisp (without being too oily) and served piping hot with a delicious, fiery, homemade chilli dip on the side. Amongst the wide variety of ingredients be sure to pick out their tempeh, crispy dough fritters, crunchy sliced cucumber, chewy tentacles, sotong and peanut fritters.
