Make a mental note of this chic joint in Shaw Centre for future tempura cravings. Order the Toku-Jo Bowl ($22.80) for a generous serving of tempura anago, crab leg, prawn, fish and egg heaped on top of pearly white rice. Choose between a spicy or non-spicy sauce — Burppler Veronica Phua recommends the former for extra oomph. Each order comes with a side of shredded cabbage salad and miso soup so you'll definitely leave feeling satisfied!

Find this highly anticipated ramen joint (affiliated to two-star kaiseki eatery Seizan in Japan) in Picnic, a multi-food concept along Orchard Road. Order their thick and umami-rich Uni Ramen ($21) with springy ramen, cha shu, egg and Bafun uni in a dashi broth. For a non-seafood option, go for the Kumamoto Wagyu Ramen ($20) or fill up on their 6PC Gyoza ($10) filled with either pork or chicken.

Although this stall is housed in a nondescript coffeeshop along Toa Payoh Lorong 7, it sticks out like a sore thumb thanks to the snaking queue that peeks out. Chef Neo, of Les Amis fame, serves a wet style of Hokkien Mee (from $4) that sees noodles simmered in a flavorful broth with generous portions of shrimp, sotong and pork belly. Pro-tip: Come by early to avoid the crowd — it opens daily from 10am till 2pm.

If you feel a hole where The Coconut Club once was, have no fear! Their sister stall has moved in, serving up homely, authentic Peranakan nosh. Walk in, receive your number tag, get a seat then head to the counter to place your order (drink orders will be taken at your table). Come with your colleagues for the ultimate lunchtime indulgence. Share the Babi Pongteh ($6.50) which sees chunky pieces of pork, carrot and potatoes in a fermented soy bean sauce, Ayam Buah Keluak ($7.50), Chap Chye ($5) and crispy Prawn Rolls ($8 for 4 pieces).

Fresh off the boat, this new Taiwanese sandwich stand has taken up residence in the brand new PLQ Mall in Paya Lebar. Drop by for a quick bite and takeaway the hearty Pork, Egg and Cheese ($6.30). Also try the Taiwan Special Pork Patty ($6.30) stuffed with tender, savoury pork patty, omelette and tons of melted cheese. Wash it all down with some Cane Flavored Black Tea ($2.60).

Easties, take note! Chef Jane of Jane Thai’s food has reopened her stall in Tampines as Nimman Soi 9, with an array of well-executed Thai favourites. Get the super spicy, sweat-inducing Basil Pork with Rice ($6) as well as the delicious Prawn Cakes ($10 for 4 pieces). Alternatively, share the flavourful Tang Hoon ($6) packed with tons of prawns, the Minced Pork Omelette ($6) and the Chiangmai sausage ($6) that Burppler Maureen Ow describes as "the epitome of Thai cuisine".

Tiong Bahru Shopping Centre's got a new conveyor belt-style sushi restaurant from Tokyo. Head on down for quick and casual meals either by yourself or a small group of friends. Don't miss their unique Broiled Salmon with Cheese and Basil ($3.20) or the foolproof Salmon Sushi Platter ($3.20). Fill up on the fragrant Grilled Anago ($3.20), the crispy Crab Cream Croquette ($3.50), the irresistable Cod Roe Mayo Gunkan ($2.20) and the unbelievably refreshing Cold Chawanmushi ($3.50). End on a sweet note with the smooth Matcha Parfait ($6.50).

Hailing from Saigon, this craft beer taproom has opened its very first outpost on Tras Street. Think rock music, Vietnamese-inspired bar snacks and more than 20 crafts beers on tap! Recommended by Burppler Jason Wong is the hoppy and potent Kurtz Insane IPA ($17 per pint) as well as the light and refreshing Futile Purpose Cucumber Pilsner ($15 per pint). If you're feeling peckish, get their Cha Gio ($12) for Vietnamese pork and seafood deep fried spring rolls.

Stop by Amoy Street for a midday tipple or a refreshing pick-me-up in this aesthetic cafe. Get their sweet and creamy Ice Matcha Latte ($7) or the tangy Pear 165 ($10 non-alcoholic, $16 alcoholic) for a fizzy concoction of pear, pink peppercorn and chamomile. Try the refreshing Bibimbap ($8) — think glass noodles served cold with carrot strips, an abundance of seaweed, sesame seeds and an appetizing citrusy sauce to tie it all together.
