1.Prawn Fritters ($7) – Lao Zhong Zhong
There’s no greater comfort than digging into crispy fried prawn fritters, chewy octopus, and juicy ngo hiangs. Everything is fried to perfection, and it’s almost a sin to stop at just one prawn fritter. Remember to ask for an extra bowl of their signature chili sauce if you’re a fan of sweet and spicy condiments.

2.Maple Bacon Chop ($22) – Artichoke
Artichoke serves up a hearty brunch, and one of my favourite dishes is the maple-glazed bacon chop. The thick-cut home-cured bacon is smoky and tender, and pairs excellently with eggs and toast. Just thinking about it now makes me want to reserve a spot for brunch on Sunday!

3.Bara Chirashi Don ($32) – Syun
My all-time favourite bara-chirashi don features a beautiful ocean in a bowl. For $32, you get a generous portion of amazingly fresh sashimi, topped with a drizzle of gingery sweet sauce, and garnished with edible microgreens and flowers. All sets are served with miso soup, salad, and chawanmushi.

4.Buffalo Wings ($12) – Wings World
Wings World tops my list of affordable places to indulge in blazin’ buffalo wings. The wings are crispy and pack a fiery punch, thanks to the vinegary hot sauce. Absolutely not for the faint of heart.

5.Foie Gras Terrine ($14) – Bodega Y Tapas
One of my favourite places to go for a rich foie gras terrine. This smooth creamy goodness is topped with nuts and vinagrette, and served alongside crusty toasted bread. If you’re not a liver person, try their huevo rotos which features potatoes, poached eggs, and iberico. It’s a simple but satisfying dish.
