1. Three Monkeys

Located along the stretch of West Coast Highway, Three Monkeys is a casual dining spot offering all-day breakfast and craft beers on tap. The cafe is named after the three wise monkeys from the famous proverb: “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”, which are depicted in the cafe’s rustic decor, along with exposed brick walls and vintage furnishings.

The cafe boasts an extensive menu, which includes acai bowls, smoothies, rice bowls, burgers, and pasta. A must-try here is the King Kong Beef Burger ($18++), a humongous burger packed with a juicy beef patty, bacon, cheese, caramelised onions, and drizzled with smoky chipotle mayo. They’ve also got addictive sides, such as the Maling Fries ($10.90++), featuring crispy luncheon meat sticks paired with a sweet and spicy dip.

Opening hours: Tue-Sun 11:30am to 3pm, 6pm to 10pm

2. Knots Cafe & Living


Housed within a black-and-white bungalow, Knots Cafe & Living sports a similar glasshouse aesthetic to their Paya Lebar outlet, and is decked out with tall ceilings and touches of green in every corner. Their all-day breakfast menu features items such as the Knots Waffle Brekkie ($26.15), starring scrambled eggs, streaky bacon, smoked beef sausage, and mushrooms sitting atop a buttermilk waffle, as well as the Smoked Salmon Benedict ($22.10), spotlighting multi-grain bread with smoked salmon, poached eggs, sauteed spinach, salad, and hollandaise sauce.

There’s also an ongoing promotion where customers can enjoy 20% off the cafe’s selection of tea and coffee with any purchase of a pastry or sliced cake.

3. Black Cherry Osteria

Situated right next to Pasir Panjang MRT, Black Cherry Osteria is another under-the-radar restaurant that’s popular for their Italian dishes. If you’re here for brunch, go for the Gambas & Guacamole ($19++), comprising a plate of eggs, guacamole, Spanish gambas, vine cherry tomatoes, mesclun salad, and sourdough. If you’d rather get something sweet, the French Toast ($19++) is another tasty number featuring a toasted brioche topped with mixed berries, nuts, and seed granola.

Moving onto mains, they’ve got Spaghetti Bolognaise ($20++), Linguine Vongole ($22++), and Kurobuta Pork Arrabiata ($24++), with chilli and house-made tomato sauce. The restaurant also offers pizza, with the Chorizo ($26++) and Burrata ($25++) being two popular picks.

4. Heng Huat Fried Kway Teow

I rarely eat char kway teow, but on the occasion that I do, I feel guilty until my next gym session. Heng Huat helps lessen my guilt by covering the oily but delicious goodness in bright green veggies. Char kway teow here comes in $3 to $7 portions, and are topped with a mountain of stir-fried chye sim. While this isn’t the best char kway teow around, the absence of lard and abundance of veggies makes this a good option if you’re looking for something that won’t – literally – weigh you down too much.

Address: 121 Pasir Panjang Road, #01-36, Pasir Panjang Food Centre, Singapore 118543
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 11am to 9:30pm

5. Uncle Ho Tuckshop

Uncle Ho Tuckshop is where you can go for some legit Vietnamese food without having to board a plane. Kick off your feast with their popular Fried Spring Rolls ($10.80) and Banana Flower Chicken Salad ($14.80). For mains, take a break from pho and go for their signature Hanoi Bun Cha ($12.90), which features charred pork belly slices and juicy pork balls in a sweet and slightly tangy broth. Dip your vermicelli noodles into the same broth and add some taugay for a crunch. If you’re like me and can’t say no to Vietnamese coffee – or rather, any kind of coffee–Vietnamese Drip Coffee ($5.80) is well-roasted, potent and will not disappoint.

Address: 100 Pasir Panjang Road, #01-04, Old Behn Meyer Building, Singapore 118518
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 11am to 8:30pm

6. E-Sarn Thai Cuisine

To me, tom yam serves as a good gauge of how good a Thai eatery is. Tom Yam Talay ($10.50/$15.50) at E-Sarn impresses with an almost-perfect balance of sweet, sour, savoury and spicy. Not to mention the amount of seafood in it too. Other popular dishes include a moreish Crispy Omelette ($8.50/$13.50) as well as Grilled Pork ($14.50/$19.50) that’s nicely marinated and caramelised on the grill to create subtle sweetness and smokiness.

Address: 130 Pasir Panjang Road, Singapore 118548
Opening hours: Wed-Mon 11:30am to 2:30pm, 5:30pm to 9pm
Tel: 6473 3716

Located within the building of Mapletree Business City, Hitoyoshi Ramen & Grill is founded by two chefs who previously worked for Keisuke Tonkotsu King, a popular ramen brand with numerous outlets across Singapore. Due to the chefs’ backgrounds, one can expect Hitoyoshi Ramen to exude a similar vibe and menu to that of the Japanese chain.

You can enjoy a variety of ramen options here, from the signature Tonkotsu ($11.90++) and Spicy Miso ($12.90++), to the Garlic Tonkotsu With All Topping ($16.90). The “all toppings” option sees the restaurant’s signature pork bone broth packed to the brim with black fungus, grilled pork with ginger, slices of pork belly chashu, aburi, and topped with a gooey ajitama egg.

Located a little further down from Pasir Panjang and tucked away in a quiet area, Sum Kee Food may be easily missed. If you love zi char, this family-run eatery is one you should add to your list of must-tries. Ultraman Chicken ($13) is one of their top-selling dishes and comes with crispy popcorn chicken pieces tossed in salted egg yolk sauce. Prices for classic zi char dishes like pork ribs, claypot tofu and stir-fried veggies range from $8 to $15, while noodles and fried rice can set you back by $4 to $6.

The uncle at Fei Zai opens his stall in the wee hours of the morning, and his prawn mee is so good there tends to always be a handful of customers who start queuing at 6am. The stock he makes is savoury, full-bodied and umami–you won’t want to leave a single drop behind. Prices range from $5.50 to $10.50 depending on the type of prawns you order and whether you want your noodles with or without pork ribs. Certain ingredients like small prawns or pork ribs sell out as early as 10am, so come very early if you don’t want to be disappointed.

Niqqi’s The Cheese Prata Shop holds a special place in my heart as it was my go-to supper spot when I was a uni student staying on campus. The 24-hour eatery serves the typical Plain Prata ($1.50) and Cheese Prata ($3.50), along with more unique flavours such as Banana Strawberry ($4) and Pineapple Cheese ($4.50).

14. Blue Balls Bike Cafe

The next themed cafe on this list is Blue Balls Bike Cafe, a cheekily named eatery that’s dedicated to the love of cycling. While the cafe’s aesthetic is all about bicycles—think vintage two-wheelers that are transformed into decorative pieces and hung up on the walls—the cafe’s name is actually a reference to the blue-hued coffee beans that are used in some of their drinks.

Even if you’re not a big fan of cycling, you’ll be charmed by their quintessential Western food with the likes of pizzas, pasta, and burgers. The titular Blue Balls Burger ($20) is a beef BLT stuffed with bacon jam, brie, and house-made sauce, while the Peloton Salmon ($22) sees a seared Norwegian salmon served with potatoes, mixed greens, and mandarin salsa.

Coffee and tea are also available from $3.50 if you’re looking for a dose of caffeine.

Address: 44 Pasir Panjang Road, Singapore 118504
Opening hours: Tue-Fri 10am to 11pm, Sat-Sun 7am to 12am
