Al Capone’s Sports Bar + Dining serves a delectable selection of Italian cuisine. From pastas to pizzas and mains, Al Capone is a great dining place for casual lunch and dinner with family and friends. Drinks here are also relatively cheaper than other sports bars around, with a pint of Heineken setting you back just $7.70 and a 3L tower at $39! And what's a sports bar without live screenings of football and rugby matches? Catch the game with your friends and support your favourite team with a drink in hand.
Fun Toast was founded in 1941 by the grandfather-in-law of its current co-owner. The former coffee maestro perfected the art of Nanyang coffee and charcoal-grilled kaya toasts during the war-torn period at the rich historical area of Telok Ayer Street. Decades later, this history has been revived and reinvigorated into a fun, innovative and uniquely Singaporean coffeehouse. Expect classics such as kaya toasts and ham & cheese french toasts, along with more innovative creations such as the Min Jiang Kueh Soft Bun!
Aston Specialities has come a long way since its humble beginnings in a coffeeshop along East Coast Road. Known for serving up delicious meats and steaks at affordable prices, Aston also has an outlet in Kallang Wave Mall.

Take your pick from yummy offerings such as creamy mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and tasty coleslaw!
Poulet is a modern French-themed bistro offering delectable fine French cuisine at pocket friendly prices. Since 2012, Poulet has been serving its signature Poulet Roti (French roast chicken) that is brined in a secret blend of citrus and herbs overnight, then left to slow cook over a flame, before it’s finally served with a choice of three delicious sauces. Besides the roast chicken, savour an all-day French menu that comforts and indulges – from soups, salads, pastas, meat, fish to desserts.

Typhoon Cafe offers a taste of Taiwan in Singapore, unifying unparalleled flavours, an obsession for artisan fruit teas and larger-than-life desserts.

A-One Signature meticulously crafted menu is a good balanced combination of soul foods, incorporated with the local palate, inspired by traditional cooking methods. Its mantra is that food should be consumed at the right temperature – and hence the use of traditional claypot cooking techniques. For the health conscious, claypot cooking uses less oil yet retains the food’s natural flavours! You can’t go wrong with the claypot porridges, such as Premium Dried Scallop Porridge with Minced Meat.
Yu Kee Duck Rice uses the traditional Teochew method of braised duck cooking and over 10 different types of herbs, spices and ingredients for its braised sauce. Each piece of duck meat is well-marinated, meaty and juicy without a gamey flavour, while the rice is fragrant and simply delicious with the slightly herbaceous gravy. Their speciality chilli is also a must try that complements every dish on the menu!
For some local favourites, head over to Encik Tan where you can enjoy local hawker fare like oyster omelette, fried carrot cake and wanton noodles in an air-conditioned setting. For curry rice lovers, make sure to try their Hainanese Curry Rice with Chicken Cutlet! The chicken cutlet is crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. It also comes with cabbage and a runny egg which makes it a really hearty dish!
Founded in 2010, Old Street Bak Kut Teh is also the pioneer of Dry Bak Kut Teh. The dish is fragrant, with a gravy that is considerably thicker and more savoury than the traditional soup bak kut teh. We recommend pairing it with a bowl of rice, as the flavours might be too overwhelming on its own! Bak kut teh purists should go for the classic Pork Ribs Soup with its peppery notes and garlicky undertones. The tender pork falls off the bone easily and this bowl is sure to satisfy any bak kut teh lover.
Suki-Ya provides a hearty hotpot buffet experience at an affordable price, starting from $22.90++.

Alongside unlimited servings of meat, health-conscious diners will also be glad to know that Suki-Ya has a vegetables bar that's decked out in a wide selection of veggies!
