Lucha Loco on Duxton Hill boasts a massive outdoor terrace complete with fairy lights, and make for a fabulous venue for ridiculous amounts of margheritas and tasty tacos. Burppler SG MUNCHIES wants you to try the Huitlacoche Quesadilla ($18), which has Mexican "truffle", sweet corn, oyster mushroom, cheese, and chimichurri. For drinks, Burppler Jessica Chew recommends the Piña Calamansi Frozen Margarita ($16), for a "sweet, tangy and citrusy cocktail concoction to bring out the tropical vibes."

Sitting on the Fullerton waterfront, OverEasy is the ultimate American diner concept with a great alfresco ambience to boot. American diner classics and decadent milkshakes are the name of the game. Burppler Yves Gwee recently headed down for Saturday brunch and tried the Truffle Burger ($26). "The bun of the burger and sweet potato fries is crispy and delicious." As for Burppler Casey Tan, the American Mac & Cheese made him feel "like being a kid again. Shells which perfectly encapsulate all that creamy white sauce, multiple types of stretchy cheese, bread crumbs for texture."

Bee's Knees is a fun, laidback and family-friendly garden cafe at Botanic Gardens. Think all-day dining dishes such as Duck Aglio Olio ($19) and Truffle Tater Tots ($12), great for sharing or for an indulgent brunch. Burppler Bitchy Bites can't get enough of the Salmon Bagel Eggs Benny ("well poached and came out runny,") served atop a generous portion of smoked salmon and fresh greens. Burppler Eunice Pang also likes the Tiger Prawns Pasta ($21) as "there's a touch of wokhei, adding a charred flavour, really yums!"

The original Wildseed in Seletar is lovely for brunch, but let's give some love to its younger sister at the Alkaff Mansion. This completely alfresco cafe sits in the mansion's courtyard, serving up gourmet breakfasts and housemade patisseries and cakes. Burppler Ni Yuan says to try the Egg Croissant ($13) as "the pairing of brie with the runny sous vide eggs was perfect". Try the delicious Miso Shiitake Linguine ($17) as well, which Burppler singaporiyums thought was wonderful. Bring your dogs and kids – all are welcome!

Dusk Restaurant is one of the concepts by One Faber Group, so you know the views there are nothing short of fantastic. Great for a casual or romantic night out, the food here range from Asian main courses to European tapas and sharing platters. Burppler Daniel Food Diary says to also look out for their Breakfast Plate ($21) on Sundays, while Burppler Iris Lim's favourite is the Prawn Capellini ($28) which comes with "juicy tiger prawns, tossed in fragrant lobster-infused oil!"

For some good brunch nosh and unbeatable ambience, stop by Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park for Grub, a popular cafe dishing up local-inspired comfort food like pastas, burgers and craft beers on tap. Grab a seat at the amply-sized outdoor terrace and order up some of our Burppler's favourite dishes. Burppler Eat Dreamlove likes the Har Cheong Fried Chicken with Waffles and Sambal ($15) as "the savoury fried chicken and the sweet maple sauce waffle complement each other!" Burppler Tiny Tummy says the Mentaiko Fries ($7) are a must try, "served warm with savoury yet milk mentaiko sauce."

CBD warriors will probably know this one! Bar On Chulia is an alfresco restobar right beside OCBC Centre, and while they're best known for daily drink deals and after-work drinks, you'll find an array of deliclious main courses and bar bites. Burppler HungryUnicorn SG says the Lamb Chop ($24) surprised them as it "tastes deliciously shiok! It is tender, flavourful and juicy, not tough at all". Burppler PrincessPinkSeah likes the Unagi Don ($14.90), with deliciously sliced grilled unagi and truffle oil.

Open Farm Community is a huge and airy Dempsey restaurant with a large patio at the back for alfresco dining - see if you can spot the roving chickens! We love this spot for its farm-to-table eating philosophy and healthy menu, with dishes such as Roasted Chicken Thigh topped with kai lan and tamarind bbq sauce and Sweet Potato Tortellini. Burppler Tiffany Lim recommends the Local Peking Duck Rillette, which comes with crispy sourdough that "is so good, and this starter definitely makes you want to eat more."

Grab a seat on the cobblestone courtyard at Artichoke and pull up your pants for the most exciting Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine you'll find in town, complete with a great soundtrack. Chef Bjorn Shen holds nothing back with creations like Crab Toast ($16) with chicken crackling and trout roe. Confused? So is Burppler Terence Ong, who loved the fluffy brioche buns and sweet blue swimmer crab mixed with tzatziki. "You can never go wrong with fried chicken skin." Burppler Kristen Yeo likes the Green Harissa Prawns ($38) too.

Summerlong is a Middle Eastern restaurant with tropical beachside vibes along the Robertson Quay stretch, with a nice breeze off the river. The atmosphere and vibes are great, and so are the mezze plates, skewers and meats, and Greek-inspired dips. Burppler _X_ . likes the Shakshuka which was "paired nicely with the sourdough bread. Eggplant hummus was also a crowd-pleaser." Give their fab cocktails a try too!
