Contrary to popular belief, the HHWT team doesn’t exactly get the chance to travel around THAT often. So what do we do when we catch the travel bug? Travel around with our tummies! Thankfully Singapore is home to a number of international food eateries and for our last video with Happy TV, we’ll be introducing four eateries where you can get the best international food when the travel bug bites!
Watch our final episode of our food hunt here 😀
1. Four Fingers
Their fried chicken comes in two flavours – soy garlic and hot. So if you’re looking for a little more spice, then you have to try their hot wings or have it mixed!
And if you’re not exactly a wings kinda person, you can still try their amazing fried chicken in the form of a burger! Choose from either their chicken katsu burger or the B.F.F burger if your appetite calls for it.
P.S. Their chicken katsu burger comes with kimslaw, which is a really interesting take on coleslaw with kimchi in it!
#HHWT Tip: If you have a huuuuuge appetite, go to the counter and tell them “I Like It Big” to get a dish on their secret menu 😉
Opening Hours: Sunday-Thursday: 11am – 10pm
Friday/Saturday/Eve of Public Holiday: 11am – 11pm
Address: 277 Orchard Road, #01-04/05 Orchard Gateway, Singapore 238858

2. Tang Tea House
Ahhh, dim sum. We love our dim sum and there’s no better place to get your halal dim sum fix than at Tang Tea House! (Unless we could fly to KL of course)
My go-to dim sum dish will always be siew mai and thankfully Tang Tea House serves really good siew mai!
If you love your shrimp, then you can’t miss out on the chee cheong fun (steamed rice rolls with shrimp) and har gow (shrimp dumpling). The dumpling ‘skin’ for the har gow isn’t too thick, and the shrimps used for both dishes are fresh and juicy.
And of course, we could never miss out on the salted egg bun when we talk about dim sum. We’ve raved about it before in our top 5 salted egg dishes to try in Singapore, but this little bun of salted egg goodness deserves a whole lot of endless praise. We love it that much.
Opening Hours: 11am to 4am, Mon to Sun. Operation hours may differ on public holidays.
Address: 357 Bedok Rd, Singapore 469545 | Check out their other outlet at Jalan Kayu here.
3. Afterwit Cafe
Want to bring your amigos for a authentic hearty Mexican meal? It’s time to introduce them to Afterwit! Tacos, nachos, burritos. They have it all!
Burritos with a local twist? Yes, please! The Beef Bryani Burrito has got to be one of our favourite dishes in Afterwit. Note of caution – Order this on an empty stomach as it’ll be a very hearty meal. The sauce used is sweet but goes surprisingly with the curry and biryani.
If you love your cheese, we highly recommend ordering their Cajun Chicken Nachos, which comes with a generous serving of melted mozerella and cheddar cheese! The jalepenos add a slight kick of spice to the nachos as well.
If you’re visiting with a group of friends, we guarantee the jalapeno mid-wings will be a crowd pleaser. The lime and salsa add a refreshing taste to the garlic and honey marinate and we just love the spice of the jalepenos!
Afterwit has a pretty laidback vibe and is the perfect cafe to hangout with a group of friends. Plus the more people you go with, the more appetizers to try!
Opening Hours: Mon to Thu – 11am to 10pm, Fri – 11am to 11pm, Sat – 12noon to 11pm, Sun – 12noon to 10pm.
Address: 778 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198746
4. Gion Dining
We love Japanese food and we were overjoyed when we heard that Gion Dining got their halal certification last year!
If you’re looking to try something different, do give their lobster sashimi a go! We promise that the freshness of it will definitely leave you wanting for more.
One of our favourite dishes from Gion Dining has got to be the teppanyaki beef. It’s really tender, juicy and just grilled to perfection. We were practically snatching it from each other!
Of course, a Japanese meal wouldn’t be complete without trying some sushi and Gion Dining has you covered with their sushi plate with tuna and other types of maki.
We also tried the ebi and mushroom tempura and absolutely loved it! The batter was light and the tempura was cooked to a perfect crisp.
Gion Dining is currently undergoing renovation and repair works so do stay tuned to our page or check out their Facebook page for the latest updates on their re-opening date and location!
