"I don't care if you're a surgeon heading into the operating theatre or a teacher giving a lecture, if you haven't had the Chocolate Lava Cake with vanilla ice cream ($5), drop what you're doing, run, and get one."
Several outlets including 313@Somerset, Bugis Junction and AMK Hub
Elliott Danker (ONE FM's #1 Breakfast Show, weekdays 6am to 10am)
"If you love steak then you should make the trip down for this amazing discovery. The Beef Steak ($11) is so tender but the real treat is the black pepper sauce. Instead of the regular baked potato that we're so used to, they serve a sort of mashed potato ball that's fried so it's nice and crispy on the surface. One of my personal favourites on a slow mid-week Wednesday."

Desiree Lai (9-5 No Repeat Workday weekdays 10am to 1pm)
"They are known for their Nasi Ayam ($4.50), and it's a very popular lunch spot among those working in Orchard. Fragrant rice, crispy chicken paired with their sambal chilli... it's super delicious! Oh, remember to ask for extra crispy bits!"
Lucky Plaza #06-52
The Flying Dutchman (ONE FM's #1 Breakfast Show, weekdays 6am to 10am)
"The flavours of the Spiced Deboned Red Snapper with Buttered Cassava and Mashed Potatoes are amazing. The best snapper I have ever had, and at $25 it's a steal."

Andre Hoeden (ONE FM's #1 Breakfast Show, weekdays 6am to 10am)
"This was my first affair with Nasi Ambeng! The sambal fish and prawns were my favourites. You have to use your fingers and don't forget to lick them.
One giant plate at $88++ feeds four!"

Cheryl Miles (The Escape Plan with Shan and Cheryl, weekdays 4pm to 8pm)
"I have such a love affair with pork! The Pork Cheek Burger ($17) is just bursting with flavour. The braised pork cheek is so tender it almost melts in your mouth. The cajun fries are so addictive too - crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside and not too oily."
