With the rising cost of living in Singapore, we Singaporeans need to save, save and save.
They say good things don’t come cheap but does it really not? Guess we proved the saying wrong as we manage to find really cheap and delicious places to dine in at CBD. Come check it out for yourself!

Another popular lunch spot for local cuisine would be Maxwell Market. The Michelin Star Chicken rice stall, Tian Tian, is located there too so don’t be surprised if you see long lines of diners there!
