With so many Ayam Penyet stalls around and claiming to be the original we really got to be more circumspect. Wandering around B3 of 313 we came across a long queue of people at this stall called Riverside Indonesian BBQ. And they would just point at a printed number on the glass widow, housing the cook grilling the meat. The numbers refer to which particular BBQ you want with the curry rice (vege is a cost option) and while you queue the cook is putting your order through the automated grill which in itself is quite interesting.

Relish is one of the original gourmet burger joints and is part of the Wildrocket group. Its a pity they did not reopen Burger Bench and Bar so it is left to Relish to cater for the burger fans. Years ago when they were charging around twenty bucks for a burger many were aghast but it is now very much the norm for a gourmet burger. Relish and B3 had the reputation of being about the best around and to a large extent Relish still delivers the goods.

We do not usually get excited by a chain of food outlets but this one derseves a place on our website. It was our search for a good Mee Siam that led us to try Chinta Manis at King Albert Park.

The cheese burger looked attractive so we decided to give it a try. Its quite good for "canteen food" but the price says otherwise (reasonable for a cafe). The Canteen is actually run by the Les Amis group and helps explain why the food tastes good. We rate the burger as good but not great.

You can't imagine having to travel the entire breadth of the island to get here but if you care for good seafood it has its rewards. Tekong Seafood Restaurant was ostensibly once on Pulau Tekong but its better that its here in Changi Village.Its not slick like Long Beach or Jumbo. Its rather laid back and the style of cooking is retro but more importantly delicious.

There are few things better than finding a great satay stall and lo and behold in the midst of Ayer Rajah Food center there is a really good one. And we can say this after having eaten there a few times to make sure the first time wasn't a fluke. Some might find it a bit sweet but there is no denying there is great taste and the meat is not dry but succulent.
The chicken is not breast meat or at least it does not appear to be. The beef and mutton are as tasty. The mutton is not gamey and the beef occasionally chewey but very edible.

Handburger is a very clever mix of marketing, presentation and location. Located at 313 and Raffles City, Handburger is clearly aiming for the trendy crowd. Good service and great presentation seems to bring in the crowds.
And because of the crowds it attracts more customers. The burger really looks the business and has all the promise of a great burger.

Great pizza is only found in Italy right? Well the Italians think so but for those who look further than the boders of Italy know Italian food is found all over the world and some of it is really great. One of these is Grimaldi's, a small chain of outlets in Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Texas and New York. Its a pizzeria chain that only does pizzas but no pastas, maybe just a salad or two.Surprisingly Grimaldi's pizza is really good with a thin crust and wood/coal - fired brick oven.

Roadhouse is really an American style diner but without the retro decor. Their burgers have often been lauded (especially the Terminator Challenge burger) so it would have to be included in the comparo. The location at Dempsey is excellent, a very chill environment. The Roadhouse is part of the Prive group.
