Shan Wee

"Dads! Margherita pizza ($18) aside, this place has a bouncy castle, water slide, trampoline and kids' toy room. Distraction - parental joy."

La Barca Ristorante & Wine Bar

90, Goodman Road, Block C, #01-21 Goodman Arts Centre

Andre Hoeden

ONE FM's #1 Breakfast Show

Weekdays 6am to 10am

"It's been a long time since I've sunk my teeth into these babies ($10). No one does xiao long baos better than Din Tai Fung. I've tried many different ones but I've always been disappointed - either the skin was too thick or too little meat. Eating 30 in one sitting is not overdoing it, right?"

Din Tai Fung

Various outlets across Singapore

Cheryl Miles

The Escape Plan 
with Shan and Cheryl

Weekdays 4pm to 8pm

"This rather unassuming cafe serves some seriously tasty Italian fare - pizzas, pastas, salads and a selection of finger food. Their version of vongole pasta ($20) is the best I've ever had. The unique combination of cream and miso really enhanced the wonderful briny flavour of the clams. Worth the calories."


302, Beach Road, #01-03

The Concourse Skyline

Melody Chen

9-5 No Repeat Workday

Weekdays 1pm to 4pm

"I'm constantly on the hunt for the best Mala Hot Pot and this one ($10++) is pretty mind-blowing. They even have two stalls in the same food centre. Choose your own ingredients and they will whip it all up in that secret Szechuan chilli sauce. Attempt the medium level for spice heaven."

FoodCentre, Chinatown

Shaun Tupaz

ONE FM's #1 Breakfast Show

Weekdays 6am to 10am

"I'm a big health enthusiast and every once in a while I'll reward myself with a 'job well done' pizza ($24). I know I should only have one slice but if you take two slices and place them on top of each other, your body won't know."

Peperoni Pizzeria

95, Frankel Avenue

Jill Lim

The ONE FM Reality Check with Josh and Jill

Weekdays 8pm to 12am

"Their spicy ramen broth ($18.90) is so rich you'll feel like a millionaire. The char siew is so amazing, it'll make you appreciate being on top of the food chain."

Sanpoutei Ramen

253, Holland Avenue, #01-01
