I love food, unfortunately I can't tolerate milk (lactose intolerance) and can't eat spicy food (irritable bowel syndrome). So you can imagine my frustration when almost all the places I went to served spicy food. And I was also on tight budget in a very expensive city.
Went here on my second night in Singapore and instantly fell in love with the food. It's close to what we have in the Philippines, and affordable too. So if you're a Filipino, and around the Esplanade area at night, and too far away from Orchard (where Jollibee is), I suggest you check this place out. One serving of rice (the cheapest is 4SGD) is good for two people actually, even if they tell you it's good for one only. There's seafood, chicken, and pork kebabs here. Went there for the next two nights after our convention in Suntec Convention Center, it's only about three or four blocks away, walkable.
Esplanade is nearby, you can walk along the bay (wonderful view at night) and watch a concert along the bay (free), and walk a little further across the bridge to the Merlion (there's also the occasional light show or fireworks). The City Hall MRT station is a few minutes walk from hereon.
