Grab lunch with your colleagues at this new alfresco cafe right on Shenton Way. Order the tender and juicy Kurobuta Pork Loin ($18) that sees pan-seared meat with a side of sauteed vegetables and potatoes. If you wish to try their breakfast menu (till 11am) go straight for the Farmers Breakfast ($10) which comes with creamy scrambled eggs topped with clarified butter, served with grilled Roma tomatoes, sauteed button mushrooms, mixed greens, rosti and warm ciabiatta served with Irish butter.

Seek respite from the heat in this quaint cafe tucked away in ION Orchard, inspired by the architecture in Marrakesh. Opt for the Moka set ($36) that includes a choice of hot or iced coffee, a chicken japaleno sandwich, and a choice of two croissants, two cakes or one pastry. On coffee, Burppler Evan Mua recommends the Sidamo Mountain single origin from Ethiopia ($9 per pot) for an intense depth of flavour with dainty floral notes or the fragrant Royal Pistachio ($9 per pot).

Find foolproof seafood and zi char at this casual restaurant in Tampines, having recently shifted from Hillview. Order the 'Har Cheong Kai' ($10) and Pork Rendang Nachos ($18) while waiting for mains. Get the Beef USDA Black Angus 'Choice' Rib-Eye ($15 per 100g) served with caramelised onions, Idaho potato wedges, sea salt flakes and fried rice. Great for sharing is the delicious Garlic Baked Crab (from $48).

Perfect for date night or intimate gatherings is this snazzy ramen bar in Hotel Soloha along Teck Lim Road. Start with their succulent Char Siew Platter ($12) and plump Mentaiko Oysters ($5 per piece, $13 for three). Be sure to leave room for the Sliced Wagyu Beef with Truffle Iberico Tonkotsu ($23.90) — choose between the Japanese ramen noodles, linguine or angel hair pasta. Think Mizayaki A5 wagyu beef, nori seaweed, shimeiji mushrooms, ajitsuke tamago, bamboo shoot and green onion in an aromatic truffle tonkotsu broth. Psst — come from 5-8pm to make full use of their Happy Hour and get 1-for-1 Asahi Beer!

Award-winning pizzaiolo, Junichi Shoji, brings his popular authentic Naples-style Italian pizzas to our sunny shores. Start with their simple yet delicious Pizza Margherita D.O.C ($26) that sees buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil on a thin-crust pizza base. Otherwise, the spicy yet tropical Pizza Leone ($22) is an excellent choice — think pineapples, jalapenos on a tomato-based pizza topped with ricotta cheese and ham.

Jot this new burger joint in Duxton down for date nights. Available till October 21st is The Most Expensive Burger In Singapore ($250) that's made with a 24-karat gold leaf covered bun, butter poached lobster tail, pan-seared Foie Gras, Japanese Kobe wagyu, champagne braised shallots, black truffle and caviar (all proceeds will go to The Children’s Charities Association of Singapore). If you're unable to catch it, pop by anyway and try their Singapore Fling ($35) for wagyu beef topped with crab meat or the Hangover Burger ($27.50) with black Angus beef, grilled pancetta, a sweet red wine onion compote and a sunny-side up — both doused in Lombardo's homemade burger sauce.

Another street food favourite from Taiwan is here! Unlike Devil Chicken, these chunky and crispy chicken cutlets come in different flavours — The King ($6.90) for salt and pepper, Hot Chick ($6.90) for homemade chilli powder and Taiker ($6.90) for Japanese sauce and seaweed powder.

Visit Century Square for this long-awaited Taiwanese chicken cutlet joint. There might be a queue, so be prepared for the wait – come early as these deep-fried babies sell out fast! Think 330g of juicy chicken breast coated in delectably crispy crust. Choose between the foolproof Original Fried Chicken ($7.90) and the Spicy Fried Chicken ($7.90) that carries a subtle hint of sweetness.

Hailing from Shanghai is this kiosk in Jewel serving up mala bowls on-the-go that's good for one. Choose from over 45 ingredients — cooked by dipping into a boiling hot pot of special broth and served dry. We recommend the Pork Belly ($2), Pumpkin Slices ($0.90), Enoki Mushrooms ($0.90) and Oyster King Mushroom ($1.50) that's especially delicious when slathered in their Secret Spicy Sauce ($1) and Creamy Sesame Sauce ($0.50). Spiceheads, remember to add chilli flakes available at the take-out counter for extra oomph!

Turn to this luxe cafe in Marina Bay Sands for tea with the girls. Enjoy the array of decadent fresh bakes by Chef Antonio Benites of Joel Robuchon fame, such as the signature Mango Cake ($10) made with passionfruit-lychee jelly atop a layer of mousse. Otherwise, the Piedmont Hazelnut Praline Caraïbe Chocolate Bar ($15) and Salted Chocolate Orange Cake ($14) are great alternatives. Wash it down with the Origin + Bloom Mazagran ($6) — cold drip coffee with lemon juice, served on ice.

Swing by this casual restaurant on Fusionopolis Way that's great for easy dinners with the fam. On mains, try their super tender Braised Beef Cheek with Organic Kale and Confit Tomato ($28) — best paired with the rich and creamy Ginseng Chicken Soup with Sea Whelk ($12) that's boiled for a full day. Other must-tries include the crunchy and savoury Homemade Kale Tofu ($6), as well as the crispy Combination Roast Meat ($15.80.

Make note of this spot on Cecil Street for quick, customisable lunches. Their Small bowls ($8.90, or 1-for-1 with #BurppleBeyond) includes a base, protein, three sides, one topping and sauce of your choice. Keep it healthy with Japanese brown rice as your base, and tender chicken breast for protein. Burppler Zac Lee recommends adding on their creamy and smooth broccoli purée for an extra fifty cents, while Burppler Gan Zhang Xun suggests topping it off with their kale chips for an earthy bitterness.
