Ryo Sushi - Best Value For Money Omakase in Singapore

photo Ryo Sushi Orchid Hotel 5.jpg
Those who love Japanese food, particularly sushi, should be no stranger to Ryo Sushi. Even if you have not dined here before, you would most probably have heard of their amazingly-priced omakase sets. Omakase dinners have long been known to be expensive, with the prices hitting $350 per pax (before taxes) at most of the established and esteemed Japanese restaurants on our sunny little island. Shinji is one of the places where most people dream of dining at, but a meal there will cause significant damage to your piggy bank. If you're thinking of going for an awesome omakase dinner, but not keen on splurging that much, Ryo Sushi is undoubtedly the place for you.

Stickies Bar - Where the Price of Your Drink Depends on the Time

 photo Stickies 2.jpg
Stickies Bar is truly the place where the early bird catches the good worm. The bar opens at 12pm, and the price of drinks is priced by the hour. If you order at 230pm, each drink will only cost you $2. Think Pure Blonde for $2? A glass of wine for $2? Holy moly, is this for real?

Having debuted Sunday lunch on Easter Sunday, Morton's brought it back again on Father's Day. The overwhelming response surprised the team at Morton's and they have decided to make it a permanent fixture, much to the joy of their fans!

(Closed) Gobble Cafe @ 498 Jurong West Street 41

 photo Gobble Cafe Jurong West Street 41 9.jpg
Miss Tan, who has had a few years of experience in the food and beverage industry, has recently opened up a cozy little space in the quiet Jurong estate. The former coffeeshop owner first opened Gobble Cafe in International Plaza in 2014. She did not manage to secure a new lease and thus decided to move to a residential area and continue to cater to the increasingly health-conscious crowd. With a lack of healthy options in the area, Gobble Cafe is truly the place to go if you're seeking a taste of home, with less salt and less oil.

 photo Osteria Mozza Marina Bay Sands Weekend Brunch 11.jpg
Osteria Mozza by celebrity chefs Mario Batali, Nancy Silverton and Joseph Bastianich have long been renowned for exquisite Italian fine-dining. The restaurant used to only operate during dinner hours but due to overwhelming requests, they have decided to take on weekend lunch which runs from 12pm - 330pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The lunch options are largely wallet-friendly and they even have a three-course set lunch ($48) comprising a starter, pasta and dessert which is really affordable and well worth every penny.

Hokkaido Sushi(M Hotel) - Free Flow Fresh Sashimi and Sushi!

 photo Hokkaido Sushi M Hotel Buffet 5.jpg
Singaporeans love Japanese buffets because we get to indulge in unlimited servings of sashimi. Over at Hokkaido Sushi, you can have limitless amount of sashimi too, except that the sashimi quality here is definitely top-notch. I've been to countless buffets, and I've had my fair share of sashimi and I can safely say that the quality and freshness of the sashimi at Hokkaido Sushi is second to none. With over 80 dishes on their Hokkaido Buffet Experience menu, I believe that you will be getting your money's worth here.

(CLOSED)Mo'mor Izakaya by W. Martin @ Tanglin Post Office (Tanglin Road)

 photo Momor Izakaya Tanglin 9.jpg
Helmed by industry veteran Chef Martin Woo, Mo'mor Izakaya commands an eye-catching spot at the Tanglin Post Office, on street level. The contemporary izakaya house pushes out Japanese fare with a European flair in a charming setting and the oysters and Wagyu beef here have generated quite a buzz. The Matsusaka Wagyu Striploin ($9 per 10g) was unbelievably tender and melted gloriously as I savoured it oh-so-slowly. The flavour, the texture, just sublime.

J65 @ Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore

 photo HJTS_1_Taste_J65.jpg
After a huge facelift, J65 is ready to host eager patrons and hotel guests. Why J65? You might wonder. J65 draws its name from Singapore's international dialing code and Hotel Jen Tanglin is actively integrating local touches into their premises, be it engaging local talents to perform at J65, commissioning local artists to create art pieces, or supporting local entrepreneurs. J65 is a befitting name for the convergence of all things local.

Nostalgic Dim Sum buffet @ Si Chuan Dou Hua (PARKROYAL on Kitchener)

 photo PA049641.jpg
Chef Wen Xin Wen is bringing back a taste of the olden days by recreating dimsums that were popular in the past. I wasn't expecting 50 dishes on the buffet menu and I definitely wasn't expecting the buffet to only cost $32- $38 per adult. Needless to say, I was immensely impressed by the selection and quality of the food. If you love yourself a good dimsum spread that is beyond value-for-money, I think you shouldn't miss this one

(CLOSED) Sopra Cucina @ Pan Pacific Orchard

 photo P9199217.jpg
(EDIT : SUNDAY BRUNCH HAS OFFICIALLY CEASED DUE TO MANPOWER ISSUES. All dishes featured are available on the Ala Carte menu)

I've walked past Sopra a couple of times but I've never gone in. When I finally stepped in for the first time, I realised what I have been missing out on. Sopra is a huge space beautifully decorated with vintage ornaments and furniture. It exudes a comforting and relaxing vibe and makes it quite the perfect venue for events, dinner and drinks. It is also a popular haunt for Ladies Night and has one of the awesomest happy-hour deals in town but people should really know about their Sunday Brunch. For just $66++, diners can have unlimited servings of Sardinian and Italian dishes. Top up $22 and you can drink your fill of Prosecco and wines. Now, tell me, isn't that a total bang for the buck?

Legendary Hong Kong @ Jurong Point

 photo P7307290.jpg
Legendary Hong Kong has been around for more than a year and its a shame that I've only just found out about it, especially when I stay near Lakeside. This huge casual joint is reminiscent of those popular cha chaan tengs in Hong Kong and that was what struck me first as I walked into the place. It might not be the easiest place to locate as all the signboards are bright and flashy and there are a ton of them but that area is dressed to look like the streets of Hong Kong and I think that does add points to the ambience of LHK. The brainchild of a Hong Kong-er, the food here is as authentic as it gets, and possibly the closest you can get to Hong Kong

 photo P7257167.jpg
Have you heard of the mobile app, Tring 313? Well I haven't until I went on a food trail at 313@somerset. I learnt more about the app and after downloading it did I realise that the app has so much to offer! In addition to having a store directory and store locator, you can also purchase coupons on Tring 313. The coupons are exclusive to shops in 313 so you can expect to find 1 for 1 Bingsu deals at O'ma Spoon, $18 for a $30 discount deals at Chir Chir, and deals at Forever 21 and Singapore's favourite froyo store llaollao!

(CLOSED) Bottura @ Suntec City

 photo P7146379.jpg
Quality Italian food has always been known to come with quite a steep price tag but not the authentic Italian fare at Bottura, a 144-seater which sits eye-catchingly on the second level of Suntec City. Bottura is a family name and it brings from Italy traditional cooking methods and home-style dishes that Luka Bottura, the owner, grew up eating. The biggest highlight would be their handmade pasta. We have all come across homemade items, but the pasta here is not only homemade, but it is made by hand too. So thin that it wouldn't survive being processed by a machine, the pasta dishes served at Bottura are absolute must-tries

Pho Street @ Westgate

 photo P6305655.jpg
Sitting in the basement of one of the most popular malls in the west, Pho Street at Westgate dishes out decent and unpretentious Vietnamese fare. Patrons can expect pretty authentic street delights prepared by Chef Kenny, who comes from Vietnam. Since its humble beginnings in 2013, Pho Street has expanded to 2 outlets and they are constantly looking to inject freshness into their menus by tailoring recipes and adding new items
