For all of us CBD office workers, lunch time is something that stumps us everyday. Despite having a bountiful amount of food choices in the area, most of them aren’t budget-friendly and it just isn’t feasible to spend so much money for a meal. 

So if you’re looking for cheaper alternatives, head down to one of CHIJMES’ outlets for their weekday lunch deals instead! Their sets start from a low of $10++, all served with sides.  

Whether it’s Japanese, Western or even Spanish nosh you’re craving, these outlets serve a variety of cuisines that’s defo’ a bang for your buck. Here’s some of our picks to get you started:

1. El Mero Mero – Mexican 2 course set lunch for $15++

With new Mexican restaurants popping up everywhere, it’s no surprise that the nosh is quickly gaining traction in Singapore. Unfortunately, most of these eateries – even on-the-go tacos – are often known to be pricey.

But there’s good news – El Mero Mero offers 2-course set lunches for just $15++. Appetizers include Caldo Tlapeño, a chicken broth with a tinge of chipotle or Botana Samplers, which include corn sampler, ceviche and a salad.

Their Lunch Mero Mero Enchilada (U.P $29)  is a crispy tortilla stuffed with juicy grilled chicken, rice, beans, cheese, sour cream and red salsa. 

Or if you’d prefer something closer to home, get the Lunch Roasted Suckling Pig (U.P $39) instead. The cackling skin of the pork will remind you of sio bak, and it’s served with a fiery Tlaquepaque sauce, made with chili and tomato for a spicy kick.  

Address: 30 Victoria Street, #01-20 Chijmes, Singapore 187996
Telephone: 6337 1377

2. MOA Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill – $15++ Honey BBQ Pork Ribs set

Ahh, ribs. Meat marinated for hours, baked till pull-apart tender and glazed with a savoury BBQ sauce. As the preparation for this baby can be arduous, most restaurants mark up their prices to as much as $45 for a slab. 

So if you thought that ribs could only be enjoyed on special occasions, you’re wrong – MOA Tiki New Zealand Bar & Grill’s Honey BBQ Pork Ribs set goes for only $15++ during lunch! Each meal is served with an egg garden salad or soup of the day, with drink options like coffee and tea.

For those who prefer a lighter bite, the Grilled Sausages set ($10++) is available too.
