Bamboozling you with an expansive menu of dishes at nett prices, Krave is one of the more recognisable names around Haji Lane. Rally your friends to try the signature Steak ‘N’ Chips ($27), which stars a whopping 200-gram slab of ribeye, accompanied by steak-cut fries and salad. The protein is grilled to your desired rarity and excites with its succulence. You can also add Duck Foie Gras to your meal for $8!

Stuff yourself full with the decadent BFB ($18+/$20+) at BERGS! This gigantic burger stacks double prime beef patties with streaky bacon, sunny-side-up, cheddar cheese, and assorted vegetables. There is also a slice of pineapple hidden within the BFB, injecting a fruity and zesty dimension to the robustly flavoured meat.

Limaa offers an assortment of #eatclean meals that steers away from the conventional salad. Big eaters can consider the Chic Platter ($17.90/$32.90), which indulges you with an entire roasted chicken and sides such as sweet potato wedges and salad. Pair the chicken with the garlic dip, should you still find the meat a tad dry.

4. The Mad Sailors

The Mad Sailors is difficult to miss with the rainbow-coloured murals decorating its storefront. Among its spread of halal British nosh, be sure to try its Bangers and Mash ($18). I adore how the caramelised onion gravy complements the peppery sausages to create a more full-bodied flavour.
For a trip to Hogsmeade and back, Potterheads can order their House Butter Beer ($8)! Entirely non-alcoholic, the milky and fizzy “booze” reels you in with its candied tang.
Address: 24 Haji Lane, Singapore 189217
Opening hours: Mon-Thur 12pm to 10pm, Fri 12pm to 11pm, Sat-Sun 10am to 11pm

Ciao translates to “hello” in Italian and the eponymous restaurant will greet your famished bellies with traditional Italian fare. The Stinco Di Maiale Alla Birra ($42++) is skilfully prepared, as the flesh of the pork knuckle effortlessly falls off the bone. Seasoned with balsamic vinegar, the white cabbage cleanses your taste buds of the unctuous meat with its refreshing zing.

With its eclectic selection of soft serves, Moosh offers a brief respite from the sweltering weather. The Nutella Brownies Cheesecake ($4.50/$6) is chocolate bliss, where Nutella soft serve is topped with chocolate malt, brownie crumbs, and a shower of chocolate sauce. Laced with a tinge of hazelnut, the ice-cream carried the appropriate level of sweetness.

Recently opened in January, LittlePo is a minimalist cafe serving up one-of-a-kind bubble teas and smoothies. Try the unique Mexican Avocado Banana ($7.90) smoothie! Prepared with fibre-rich fruits, the smoothie can fill the hungriest of bellies.
If you are more a tea person, the Lapsang Souchong Milk Tea ($4.90) will thrill you with its velvety body. As their milk teas have a fixed 25% sugar content, they are a healthier solution to your bubble tea cravings.

8. I Am…

Inspired by his trip to Amsterdam, owner Jam opened I Am…, an al fresco cafe which showcases a litany of halal Dutch-inspired dishes. The most impressive is undoubtedly their Bitterballen ($10.90). These meatballs were tweaked for one and a half years, as Jam attempted to replicate the original flavour without the use of lard.

Blu Jaz Cafe is not only a treat to the ears but also a feast for your tummy with its myriad of Mediterranean dishes. A familiar name is its Shawarma, a fluffy pita bread that is stuffed with either Shredded Chicken Fillet ($12.90) or Marinated Grilled Lamb ($14.90). Like traditional shawarma, hummus is provided on the side, which injects a sweet whiff of tahini to the meat.
