The vibrancy and diverse local food scene of a place is often seen as a reflection of the diversity of that place, and Singapore is the best example of that.
Singapore’s food scene, which is a concoction of the best cuisines from around the world, is often seen as a celebration of the multiculturalism that Singapore has.
Singapore’s different ethnic groups have come together, without giving up their cultural heritage or beliefs hence creating a diverse and thrilling food scene.
From Michelin-starred delicacies and western cuisines to local comfort food by homegrown chefs, Asian cuisines and timeless hawker favourites. In summary, Singapore has it all.
Moreover, we can say that it is one of the places with more high quality delivery options, which proved its point during the Circuit Breaker period this 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

~ Yujin Izakaya
You haven’t truly experienced Japanese food culture if you’ve never stepped inside an Izakaya, a Japanese-style bar with a tie-loosened and hair down vibe.
Actually, Izakayas are to Japan what tapas bars are to Spain and Irish pubs are to Ireland.
Undoubtedly, Yujin is one of our favorite Izakaya in Singapore! It is not a coincidence that we liked Yujin that much (which means “friend” in Japanese). It is under the umbrella of Les Amis Group, which is always a guarantee for cool interiorism and high-quality food.
It is located at a corner shophouse unit along Zion Road, but they also offer delivery and take away. Which is great if you are planning an afterwork at home with friends (great idea, huh?)
Their menu is loaded with an array of cold and hot appetisers, smokey grilled vegetables, meat and seafood dishes, singed skewered items and bowls.
If you are a bit lost at what to order, here are our recommendations:
- Katsu Sando (US beef, toasted bread, pommery mustard)
- Kawaage (Fried chicken skin)
- Kaki Furai (Deep-fried japanese oysters, tartare sauce)
- Buta Kakuni Don (Braised pork belly, onsen egg, Japanese rice)
- Gyu Yakiniku (US beef, onsen egg, homemade yakiniku sauce on Japanese rice)
Pair your food with their selection of Japanese beers and sakes for an unforgettable experience!

~ Bearded Bella
Bearded Bella está ubicado en Tanjong Pagar, el barrio con mayor concentración de instagrammable cafés y lugares de brunch.
Bearded Bella no se queda atrás y nos teletransporta a Australia. Con terraza, barra y un cozy-vibe inigualable en el barrio.
Surgido de la unión creativa de dos compañeras de piso de Melbourne, con ganas de traer el slow-paced food a Singapore: Regina Tay y Sarah Ling.
Una de las cosas que más nos gustó es la calidad del café. Specialty coffee servido por baristas (Regina was the winner of the Singapore National Barista Championship in 2016) y opciones de brunch entre las que os será dificil elegir.
Besides specialty coffee and juices, they also offer well-deserved cocktails.
- Specialty coffee, obviously (do not put sugar in it, please!).
- Mains: Smashed avocado, ¨Pancake, bacon, flight, magic¨, Brie croquettes and whichever of their burgers, they are all amazing!
- To sum-up, do not miss their ¨Sea salt brownie¨. ¡Amazing!
Finally, delivery platforms con las que trabajan: Deliveroo.
~ Swee Choon
Located at the heart of Jalan Besar, in the district of Little India, Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant is a well-known and an established local restaurant where people from all walks of life have come to enjoy dim sum for almost 55 years.
Whether it is for breakfast, dinner or supper, you can enjoy and savour a wide variety of Hong Kong and shanghai dim sum.
Our favorites dishes? Down below!
- Xiao Long Bao
- Char Siew Bao
- Spicy Eggplant with Minced Pork
- Sauteed Long Beans w/ Minced Pork
On top of that, it is one of our go-tos when we are seeking money-for-value restaurants. We have never paid more than 20$ per person (food-coma involved)! Isn’t it great?
~ The Refinery
Located in Jalan Besar, in the midst of engineering workshops, The Refinery Singapore will immediately beam you up to the industrial-ish, laid-back, hipster restaurants in Brooklyn, New York.
They define themselves as “a 3 story oasis for those who love to eat, drink and create. It houses a casual Japanese joint, a secret cocktail bar and a creative space and workshop for those itching to desing and build”.
For those wishing to enjoy a delicious, wholesome meal, The Refinery serves Japanese rice bowls and side dishes.
Colin, The Refinery founder, told us that they use Japanese rice cooked alongside an added plant based fibre by a food tech startup based in Singapore, giving white rice the same nutrition benefits as brown rice. Great, huh?
They also offer really good specialty coffee and matcha latte.
They have created a delivery and takeaway menu for those who wish to stay at home. Check their delivery menu HERE!
We especially like their packs for 2 or 4 pax, which is great if you are in a rush and do not want to (over)think what to order.
Our favorites? Do not miss their Mentaiko Fries and their Salted Egg Onion Rings as sides.
As mains, we loved the Salmon Poke bowl, the Smocked duck don and their signature bowl “Refinery Gyu don” with truffle Hon Shimeiji Mushrooms and Tare Marinated Beef.
Btw, their sauces are a-maaaazing and guess what, you can take them home with you.
We took away the “Stephen’s Curry Mayo” and paired it with some nuggets for dinner that very same day.
