If you are looking for the most enjoyable and typical dish to have in an affordable restaurant in Singapore, there are plenty of choices for you to make.
Below is a guide for you to select for a more dining option yet still cosy enough for you to have a pleasant and enjoyable meal.
1. Pasta Brava
Fresh, hand-made pasta, Pasta Brava is an amazing seafood pasta restaurant in Singapore. It has a very classic Italian interiors. Definitely try the pastas here. The Linguine Regina Del Mare ($23) is recommended if you like tomato-based seafood pasta.
The risottos are also really well executed and not too gruel-like. Try the Risotto Nero Alla Sinfonia Dei Nostri Mari ($23), which is a seafood and squid ink risotto.
2. Club Street Social
Scrambled Eggs, Fontina, Chives and Toast ($12) is an excellent choice to savour their runny and creamy eggs. Club Street Social is quite intimately small, and transforms into a more bustling drinking hole at night.
The sandwiches are also recommended like the 180g Black Angus Ribeye Panini ($28) and the Duck Confit with Roasted Mushrooms Panini ($20), which is pretty affordable.
If you like casual Japanese food which is an affordable restaurant in Singapore and want to avoid the mass-market Sushi Tei,Akashi is the indie version to go to. The set varieties served here are of good quality and affordably priced. Try the Sushi Tsuki ($16 lunch, $20 dinner) set, which is an assortment of sushi like salmon, tuna and tamago, is really worth its price. The Otsukuri set ($26 lunch, $29 dinner) is also decent with slices of quality sashimi like Salmon, tuna and Yellowtail, along with some nigiri rolls, miso soup and a side.
4. L’Entrecote: The Steak and Fries Bistro
For mains, this Parisian bistro steakhouse much like Les Bouchons only serves 1 item: Entrecote Steak and Fries ($29.90), which comes drizzled in their secret house sauce and a serving of golden shoestring fries. The sauce has vinegar and mustard mixed in from what my taste buds can tell for a sour meaty bite. You can also get the large portion at $39.90 if the regular is too small. Besides the steak you can also go for the French Escargots de Bourgogne ($16), for a distinctively French dinner.
The signature 12 inch Pizza Siciliana ($23.90) comes with sausage, olives and capsicum, while the Seafood linguine ($22.90) is also something to savour while enjoying the amazing view. The alcohol tends to be on the high side though.
