For a quick and satisfying lunch, make a beeline for this Halal-certified Lanzhou beef noodle house. Expect a complex and robust broth (simmered with more than 15 spices) with fresh noodles hand-pulled on the spot. Pick your noodles (ranging from thick to flat) for the flavourful Signature Beef Noodles (from $8.90). Spice fiends, the Mala Spicy Beef Noodles ($9.50) with that extra kick is made for you.

This Sunshine Plaza occupant offers affordable and delicious chirashi bowls not to be missed. Make sure to order the popular Bara Chirashi Don ($13), sporting fresh and substantial portions of squid, prawn, tuna and salmon. Not a fan of sashimi? Turn to the Aburi Duck Teriyaki Donburi ($12) – thick cuts of savoury smoked duck drizzled in sweet teriyaki sauce, and then topped with a runny onsen egg.

Round up the gang for a casual Thai meal at this Tan Quee Lan Street spot. A bowl of Baamee Haeng Tom Yum (Tom Yum Noodles Dry, $7.50) would do a fine job for one, but we'd recommend sharing it with the group alongside the fresh Steamed Seabass with Green Chilli Lime Sauce ($19.80) and the crispy Deep Fried Pork Neck with Fish Sauce ($8.80).

Take your date out for a fun Italian meal, without breaking the bank. You're here for the handmade pastas, whether you like your Tagliatelle with Porcini Mushrooms ($14.90) or Italian Meatballs ($12.80). On sides, bad for their Fried Mozzarella ($8.80), deep-fried oozy cheese sticks that comes with an appetising tomato sauce for dipping.

Don't let the snaking queue at this Korean diner stop you — if you're a fan of jjajangmyeon, it's gonna be a worthy wait! The Jjajangmyeon ($12) hits the spot with springy noodles slicked in dark and delicious black bean sauce. Also sure to satisfy, the Jjamppong (spicy seafood noodle soup, $14) is served with a generous portion of prawns.

Experience authentic Taiwanese fare in this 90s classroom setting that serves up street staples, such as Lu Rou Fan ($8 with a side dish), Chicken Rice and Oyster Intestine Meesua. Get more bang for your buck with their Mini 3 Bowl Set ($15) that allows you the luxury of sampling all three dishes in smaller (but still very hearty) portions!

For ramen on a budget, get your hands on Nagoya-style Mazesoba ($12.80) — less than $10 a bowl with your Burpple Beyond 1-for-1 deal! The dish features dry ramen topped with an egg, a generous portion of spicy minced pork and plenty of spring onions. Add some chili oil and a dash of vinegar for a flavour boost!

Can't decide on a favourite burger? Ordinary Burgers makes it easy with a compact but inclusive selection, from $5.90 each! Beef? Check. Vegetarian? Check. Buttermilk Chicken? Check. Our favourite has to be the Spicy Fried Chicken Burger ($5.30), which Burppler Dex Neo likens to an improved version of the well-loved McSpicy.

When in need of comfort food, leg on over to this Keisuke joint in Bugis+. Expect luscious omelette over tomato rice, served with your choice of sauce (get the classic demi-glace!) At just $9.90, the set offers great value for money with miso soup, salad and a free upsize on rice.

Meat-lovers in the East, rejoice! iSteaks has a new outlet in your 'hood and that means delicious, quality cuts for cheap. The NZ Ribeye (from $18) is a bit of a splurge but since it comes in a hefty 200g slab, you can order this to share long with the flavour-packed Bacon Aglio Olio ($8.90). The mains come with tasty sides too — think filling mash and crispy fries.
