17. Rice Bowl Boys

As their namesake suggests, they sell rice bowls. Not just any normal rice bowls though, Rice Bowl Boys have hearty and affordable grain bowls that they proudly proclaim are “bougie on a dime”. Located in Chinatown Complex Market and Food Centre, we’d recommend the Side Chick (starting from $7) that comes with rice pilaf, house marinated chicken, smoked enoki mushrooms, and poached apple wasabi sauce among others.
There are customisable grain bowl options too with a whole multitude of ingredients to choose from, available for $7 and $9 for lite and regular-sized bowls respectively. Unfortunately, for the time being, delivery services are only accessible to those staying within three kilometers of Chinatown Food Complex, via GrabFood, Deliveroo, and WhyQ.
Touted as SG’s very own version of The Halal Guys in New York, Overrice serves mostly Mediterranean fare, in the form of halal rice bowls, falafels, and even banana pudding at their sole outlet at Arab Street. Try out their signatures, including the Pulled Beef Bowl ($13.70) which constitutes slow-cooked pulled beef served over seasoned basmati rice, baked pita bread and mixed salad too.
Other than their mains, the sides are worth considering too, with the plant-based Falafel Bites ($8.40) or even Buffalo Chicken ($8.40) if you especially love chicken drumlets. Delivery for them can be arranged with the eatery itself or through services such as GrabFood and Pick&Go.

19. Unagi VS Salmon

To my fellow lovers of Japanese food, rest assured that there’s always something in store for us, even in healthy food. Unagi VS Salmon has a variety of rice, soba, and veggie bowls featuring salmon done sashimi-style or cooked, together with unagi as base proteins. Their bowls start from $10.90, with favourites such as Salmon Sashimi Ikura or Black Pepper Teriyaki Salmon standing out among others.
If you want the best of both worlds, opt for the Unagi VS Salmon Bowl ($16.90) instead to satisfy your unagi craving as well. For this eatery, it’ll be good for you to order in groups, as they require a minimum order of $50 for all deliveries, together with a flat delivery fee of $10 islandwide. However, your delivery fees will be completely waived for orders of $100 and above.
20. Yummy Bros

For those who want to enjoy the wonders of local Asian cuisine minus the guilt, Yummy Bros have the right solution for you, delivering meals prepared with healthy and nutritious ingredients, especially ideal for gym junkies. Influences from hawker favourites can be found in their Yummy Chicken Rice ($11.90) and Yummy Kopi Chicken ($9.10).
Otherwise, try out the Yummy Chicken Bulgogi ($8.50) or Yummy Chicken Panggang ($8.10) for a taste of regional culinary influences. Their islandwide delivery fees vary depending on the amount spent, with the highest being $9 if you order below $30 and the lowest being $3.50 for orders above $50.
Get healthy food delivered to you
I can foresee Singaporeans, including myself, rushing to dine at their favourite restaurants, feasting on all the delicious food once this pandemic has stabilised. Since we’ll be gaining a few extra pounds in the process, I say we take constructive steps to eat clean now, to gear up for the onslaught of post-pandemic feasting. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy everyone.
