Eat I would say Fisho’s at Torquay for fish n chips.

+39 for pizzas. Tipo 00 for pasta.

Rice Paper Scissors for Asian fusion tapas style food.

I sometimes take visitors to Stalactites. It's reasonably good and cheap, and most people based in SG rarely come across Greek food so that's a plus as well.

Be aware of drunkards/druggies or gangs roaming the streets late night.

Sure, you may come across local law enforcement patrolling on horseback late night, but you must still take necessary precautions if **** happens.

Thank so much for sharing. I will definitely be careful and be alert of my surroundings.

My experience with Aussie food is that yes their servings are all huge. Though the prices are easily $20+, it’s justified by the bigger portions.

It's a bit like enforced bulk buy. It's fine if you want to eat that much, but sometimes, I just want 1x chicken rice, not 3x in 1 go.

is it possible to share the food then? bc i know in certain country, they don't like the ideas of 2 sharing 1 food portion at their restaurants
