Bugis food guide


Bugis is both a shopper and foodie’s haven. Not only are there boutiques and malls all around the area, there are plenty of eateries to stop by between shopping sprees—from hawkers, cafes, restaurants at Bugis+ and Bugis Junction, and even more options at Haji Lane, here are some of our favourite Bugis food places for you to check out.


Southeast Asian food—Thai, Indonesian, Singaporean, Vietnamese


1. Eleven Finger


Bugis-eleven-finger

Look no further than Eleven Finger for a hearty plate of curry rice! There’s an interesting story behind the name of this stall. Turns out, the owner of Eleven Finger has an extra finger! One meat and vegetable costs $3, while a small add-on such as an egg would cost $0.50 extra. Some recommended ingredients include Chap Chye, Tau Pok, Curry Chicken, Fried Egg and Braised Pork Belly. Come early if you’re hungry because queues start forming even before the store opens for business.

2. Mrs Pho


bugis-mrs-pho

Get transported to the streets of Hanoi at Mrs Pho, a hidden gem of a Vietnamese joint. A bowl of Sliced Beef and Brisket Pho ($10.80++) is served piping hot, with tender beef slices and brisket simmering in a wholesome, flavourful broth. If you’re looking to grab a small bite, try sides such as Mamma’s Lucky Meat Balls ($3.80++), skewered meatballs marinated in a delightful sauce. It also comes with a peanut dip, although you might be too busy savouring the meatballs to try it. Another alternative would be their Fresh Summer Roll ($5.80++), fresh spring rolls stuffed with vermicelli, pork, prawns and lettuce.

3. IndoBowl

IndoBowl, Singapore’s first Indomie-themed cafe, gets what this well-loved instant noodle brand is all about. Most of us have spent many a night slurping down a pack (or two) of Indomie for a guilty supper, but IndoBowl ups the sinful factor with their mammoth Indomie Mumbo Jumbo ($55.31++). The platter grabs the spotlight with a mountain of kecap manis-glazed noodles before delivering the knockout punch with its assortment of grilled meat. Consider your Indomie dreams fulfilled with this impressive set.

Grab a quick meal at Albert Centre Food Centre and you’ll notice an unmistakable queue snaking around Say Seng Cooked Food. The hands behind this old-school eatery are tirelessly working during lunch hours, chopping down slab after slab of braised pork belly with methodical precision. For $10.50, a meal set comes with Lor Bak, Pig’s Organ Soup and a bowl of rice. This meal is sure to fill you up.

5. New Rong Liang Ge

New Rong Liang Ge not only stands as one of Singapore’s best spots for sio bak, but also one of the most affordable as well. A plate of Char Siew Rice only sets you back $3.50 here while their Char Siew & Roasted Pork Rice is priced at $4.50. If these cheap dishes don’t give your dollar a good stretch, their selection of double-boiled soups surely does the trick. Priced as low as $2.50, these warm bowls of soup taste best on a rainy day.

6. PerghChicks 


bugis-perghchicks

Previously a pasar malam stall, PerghChicks has since opened a permanent store at Haji Lane. This restaurant specialises in ayam percik, which is a rare find in Singapore. Their Nasi Kukus Volcano (from $12.50+) is great for those with a penchant for spice. This dish features a turmeric-infused chicken covered in a dense gravy, and a side of spicy sambal. Another must-try is their Percik Wings ($20+ for 6 pieces), which features a special house-made percik sauce that includes coconut cream, cashew nuts and more.

7. Chin Chin Eating House

Chin Chin Eating House is one of the oldest restaurants in Singapore. Here, they specialise in Hainanese chicken rice. A set of chicken rice costs $6 and comes with your preferred chicken parts and a warm bowl of chicken broth. Their kampong chicken meat is known for being tender and juicy, so we recommend getting their Half Chicken ($18) or Whole Chicken ($36) to share with your family or friends.

The next time you’re on the search for the best banh mi in Singapore, add Co Hai Banh Mi to your list of Vietnamese restaurants to visit. Their Co Hai Baguette ($12) is made using house-baked bread and includes BBQ pork, ham, pork floss pate, and pickled vegetables. You can also try their Sliced Beef Noodle Soup ($10.80) for a rich broth simmered for more than 12 hours. If you prefer rice to noods, opt for their Rice With BBQ Pork Chop, Egg Meatloaf & Sunny-Side-Up ($13.50) instead.

From the famous New Station Snack Bar in Far East Plaza comes New Station Rice Bar! This new “sister outlet” serves wallet-friendly zi-char dishes, including their signature Salted Egg Pork Rice ($8.50) which features chunky pieces of pork chop coated in the buttery, decadent sauce. We liked their 48-hour Boiled Clam Soup With Wu Jia Pi ($10) too, for its heartiness and generous portion of clams.

10. Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant 


bugis-man-man-japanese-unagi-restaurant

Unagi lovers should definitely not miss out on Michelin Bib Gourmand awardee Man Man Japanese Unagi Restaurant. Fresh eel is grilled right before your very eyes, so you can be sure this place takes pride in its quality servings. We tried their Hitsumabushi ($29.50+), which consisted of smoky unagi marinated in salty-sweet tare arranged atop plump Japanese short-grain rice. Apart from rice bowls, Man Man also offers Umaki ($14.10+), pillowy pan-fried, rolled egg with a slice of unagi wrapped in its core. What sets the egg apart from regular tamago is that it’s actually more savoury than sweet!

Another unagi restaurant on the list, Una Una is a cheaper alternative to Man Man Unagi. Located at Bugis+, the restaurant serves one of the cheapest Unajyu meal sets in Singapore from only $9.80++. For sides, we like to get the Grilled Squid ($17.80++) for its large portion of succulent, well-charred flesh.

Churning up affordable plates of Taiwanese fare, Supreme Pork Chop Rice frequently pops up on the lunch list of CBD workers. Just as the name suggests, this hidden gem in Bugis prides themselves on their mouth-watering Pork Chop Fried Rice ($5). Their cutlets offer a resonant crunch with every bite, unfurling in a burst of garlicky and cinnamon-ey accents.

Chef China Hua Chu has unusual decor with its outer space theme. Enjoy an assortment of Sichuan skewers with their astronaut mascot which roams around the restaurant during peak hours. If you’re dining in a large group, share their Dry Fried Pig’s Large Intestine ($16.80++) or Spicy Chicken ($18.80++), bound to set your tongue on fire with the huge amounts of dried chilli. Chef China Hua Chu is also a great spot for supper in town, as it opens till 3am daily.

14. Bulgogi Syo


bugis-bulgogi-syo

Bulgogi Syo offers a unique three-step grilling K-BBQ that has meat seared, torched, and flambeed. Their most popular specialty is the Angus Beef Tenderloin ($35.50++). Chunks of juicy beef are seared and torched before they are served, and you get to see how they are flambéed. Pork belly lovers can also opt for their Duroc Pork Belly ($20.90++), a spicy dish with bits of seaweed that help to zhng up the savoury flavour.

Hidden behind a row of Japanese vending machines, Ume San 100 is where you can get the most extensive range of Japanese plum wines in Singapore. A good pairing with your alcoholic drinks is the Wagyu is the New Black Chahan ($20+), a charcoal-stained fried rice dish served with Wagyu cubes and tobiko. Otherwise, try their Angry Asari Soup Ramen ($18+), comprising a milky tonkotsu broth with a miso base, springy noodles, asari clams, and ajitsuke tamago AKA ramen egg.

Another Korean restaurant on this list is Joo Bar, where you can try a variety of rice wine AKA makgeolli. With a wide range of 12 flavours to choose from, we encourage you to get their Makgeolli Sampler Set ($35++) to try as many as possible. Each set comes with five flavours: Mango, Mixed Berries, Strawberry, Yucha, and Original. A good pairing with your rice wine would be the Wagyu Kimchi Fried Rice ($28++), which features Wagyu slices and sous vide egg, or Kimchi Mac & Cheese ($18++)

So Do Fun is said to be one of the most famous Sichuan boiled fish joints in China. Apparently, they sell more than a million sets of Boiled Live Fish (from $42.90++) every year! This dish consists of fish chunks cooked in the soup of your choice: Chilli Pepper, Peppercorn or Sauerkraut. According to the restaurant, the fish is imported by plane every day to ensure its freshness.

19. Husk Nasi Lemak


bugis-husk-nasi-lemak

Husk Nasi Lemak takes the coconut rice dish to a whole new level with their modern and fusion interpretation of the typical nasi lemak elements. The highlight of the Signature Chicken Cutlet Set ($10.80) is the crispy chicken cutlet, which features a juicy slab of thigh meat coated in a batter perfected in Taiwan. That same batter is used as a garnishing to add more crunch. Enjoy the ajitsuke tamago with their house-made sambal for a sweet and spicy kick. If you like your chicken grilled instead, opt for the Grilled Chicken Set ($10.80), which is inspired by Thailand’s grilled pork skewers. The chicken thigh is beautifully caramelised, thanks to the sweet marinade.

20. Box n Sticks

Nestled on a quiet stretch in Kampong Glam, Box n Sticks has become a preferred night haunt for many with their chill vibes and cosy ambience. If that isn’t reason enough to visit this cosy izakaya for a relaxing post-work tipple, most of their dishes also taste superb with a pint of beer. 

Pair their beer or sake with their signature Spicy Aburi Seafood Maki ($18.90+), which features a sushi roll crammed with torched salmon, prawn tempura, and crabstick. A dash of house-made chilli sauce caps off this kaleidoscopic treat, cutting through the richness of the seafood and the fizziness of the beer with its tangy bite.

21. The Padangton


bugis-the-padangton

Newly opened in 2023, The Padangton has food with influences from Padang, a city in Indonesia. They are best known for their Lamb Shank Rendang Padangton ($27++), which features a crispy pastry packed with tender lamb shank rendang—think beef Wellington, but with a delightful twist! There’s also the Pulut Sushi Rendang Padangton ($12.50++): yellow glutinous rice stuffed with beef rendang, and topped with fried grated coconut. If it helps, the eatery is located across The Ramen Stall

Founded by an Indian-Pakistani couple, Mahmud’s Tandoor is well-loved for their tandoori chicken burgers. Their Crispydoori Burger ($14.40) is a must-try; you get a slab of deep-fried chicken thigh meat that is evenly marinated with tandoori spices and doused in harissa mayonnaise, and a slice of cheese packed between two brioche buns. Alternatively, get their OG Burger ($14.40) if you prefer tender chicken thigh meat that is baked instead of fried. We also recommend getting their Masala Fries (from $4.80) to go with your burgers.

bugis-pancake-and-waffle-place

Pancake fans will love Pancake & Waffle Place, where you get s’mores waffles and pancakes served with smoked salmon and sour cream. From their pancake selection, Tiger Prawn ($20.90++) is a popular choice among customers. Three thick pancakes are topped with tiger prawns, then doused in a creamy and mildly spicy sauce. If you’re a waffle to pancake kinda foodie, give their Ham & Cheese Waffle ($22.90++) a shot. You get buttery waffles and ham drenched in hollandaise sauce, then topped with a fried egg as the final touch.

24. Mashi no Mashi


bugis-mashi-no-mashi

Bugis is home to lots of ramen places, but they are not quite like Mashi No Mashi, a famous chain with a unique Ultra Wagyu Ramen ($22++). This eatery replaces pork bones that are usually used to make ramen broth with Wagyu beef bones, thereby creating a beef-flavoured “tonkotsu” broth with a distinct meaty aroma. We got tender pieces of beef chashu too, which was the highlight of the bowl due to the way the meat melts in your mouth.

25. Beyond the Dough 


bugis-beyond-the-dough

For something more atas, head to Beyond the Dough for their artisanal pizza. The chef-owner, Mr Eddie Murakami, has experience working in Pizza Strada and Pizza Studio Tamaki, both of which are highly-respected pizza institutions in Japan. Murakami makes Tokyo-style Neapolitan pizza, where the crust is thinner and the firm elasticity of the pizza dough is retained. When we visited, we tried their prawn noodle-inspired Singapore Rampage ($39++) and liked the spicy, umami-packed flavour a lot.

26. Overrice


bugis-overrice

Another halal-friendly eatery on this list, Overrice serves Mediterranean-style rice bowls and pita pockets. The Pulled Beef Signature Bowl ($13) is a crowd-favourite here, with fragrant basmati rice served with slow-cooked pulled beef and fresh vegetables. The bowl is doused in a “secret white sauce” which reminds us of a blend of Greek yoghurt and mayonnaise. For a lighter option, taste the Chicken Pita Pocket ($7), which features chicken and shredded lettuce in a toasted pita. Portions here are generous, as pita bread is also offered as an accompaniment to the rice bowls.

To go with your nachos, get their Chipotle Chicken Quesadillas ($16++) or Al Pastor Pork Quesadillas ($16++). You can pay an additional $3++ for an extra blanket of cheese to make your quesadillas even more moreish and flavourful.

Belle-ville Pancake Cafe is my top pick for a satisfying and IG-worthy tower of souffle pancakes. One of their popular items is Matcha Red Bean Pancake ($13.20++ for four, $18.20++ for eight), which is a glorious combination of matcha, red bean, and blackberries. To get that extra splash of colour, and a dose of fruity sweetness, fork out that extra dollar and treat yourself to the Strawberry & Mixed Berry Pancake ($12.90++ for two, $16.40++ for four) instead.

29. June Bakery


bugis-june-bakery

June Bakery’s Orh Nee Tart ($1.50) is elusive. The bakery is only open four days a week, and is often sold out by 1pm. But if you manage to get your hands on one of their tarts, you will understand why they’re so popular. The tart is filled end-to-end with smooth yam paste that’s not overly sweet; while their crust of choice is a savoury and buttery shortcrust. These no-frill tarts are usually snapped up in the dozens by nearby office workers, so visit the bakery early to avoid disappointment! Pro tip: place an order with the shop owners in advance to secure a box of these delights!

Dubbed one of the best kopi stalls in Singapore, YY Kafei Dian offers Hainanese-style coffee along Beach Road. It’d be a pity to leave without trying their Kaya Bun ($1.70+), which comprises toasted house-made buns with a sweet kaya spread anda slab of salted butter for a rich and savoury finish. Don’t forget to pair your bun with a cup of Iced Kopi ($2+) which is known to be a best-seller.

32. Whiskdom


bugis-whiskdom

Once a home-based business on Instagram, Whiskdom is now a popular bakery with four stores across the country. If you’re a fan of tea-flavoured treats, get their Matcha Cocoa Brownie ($6.50) or Hojicha Lava ($6.50). The former is a hot favourite among many patrons thanks to the combination of rich matcha flavour and white chocolate bits. On the other hand, the latter boasts a strong hojicha-flavoured ganache with a generous amount of chocolate lava within.

33. Cornercove


bugis-cornercove

If you’re on the hunt for the best acai shops in Singapore, you should pay Cornercove a visit for DIY acai bowls with unlimited toppings. Even better, the ingredients here are all-natural with no sugar added! After you’ve decided on a Regular ($9.90) or Large ($14.90) bowl, you can choose your base that ranges from Acai and Pitaya to Matcha and Coconut. We recommend their Tropical Paradise to beat the sultry weather; this bowl stars a pretty combination of passionfruit, peach, and mango. To elevate your acai bowl, you can add a huge scoop of Blue Chia Pudding or Raspberry Chia Pudding

34. Yat Ka Yan

Yat Ka Yan needs little introduction—this is often the first place that comes to mind when it comes to traditional desserts in Bugis. Their Durian Chendol ($7.50) is well-known for its rich durian paste and super-fragrant gula melaka. If durian is not your thing, then try their Yammy Chendol ($6.50) where a chunky taro paste is added in place of the funky fruit.

35. Duke Dessert

Situated right next to Yat Ka Yan is Duke Desserts. This store makes really good Durian Chendol ($6.80) too. Plus, most of their toppings are made from scratch in-store! When we visited this eatery, we liked their Beancurd Grass Jelly With Ice Cream and Tapioca Balls ($6.90) the most, especially for their chestnut tapioca boba, which had a crunchy interior and jelly-like coating.
