Affordable restaurants to check out when you’re in Orchard Road

6 January 2020

Eating in the famed shopping district doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg.

Greyhound Café
Missing Bangkok? Get a slice of it at the industrial-style café. Located at Paragon, fans of the Greyhound brand will find a tantalising array of eats such as the flavourful Crabmeat Fried Rice, and Salmon Carpaccio.

Apart from its famed Hainanese Chicken Rice, which is the hotel’s claim to fame since its inception in 1971, other must-tries include local and regional delights including Laksa, Kolo Noodles, White Curry Noodle, Mandarin Coconut Ice Cream and Chendol.

Ollie Kitchen and Bar
Despite the many cafes and coffee houses in Singapore, we can tell when there’s a joint that’s worth heading back to. Ollie Kitchen and Bar (named for its owner’s late puppy) which serves comfort food and fragrant brews is one such establishment. Appealing to coffee aficionados and those seeking pocket-friendly eats without fuss, the Kitchen and Bar has come up with a menu packed with scrumptious gourmet burgers, meatballs in tomato sauce, pastas, and of course, a variety of delicious coffees.

Shiraz Mazzeh
If you have no time for a leisurely sit-down meal, the bistro’s Halal-certified gourmet kebabs are sure to satisfy your tummy at any rate. Think luscious and tender meats and crisp vegetables drenched in a flavourful sauce all wrapped in a freshly-baked doner wrap. The bistro is open for lunch, dinner and supper.
