Get your stomachs ready



We all have those days – the ones where we feel ravenous and ready to eat a horse. We want to eat everything in sight, and our tummies are making a strange mix of a wail and a strangled cry.

Unfortunately, if you’re like me, a day like this comes faster than you can tell your body “Oi get yo act together!”. So I’ve made a list of 10 places we can visit just for days like that! You can thank me later.


1. Menya Musashi


Menya Musashi is no stranger to the ramen scene, originating from Japan and garnering hordes of loyal fans worldwide. It serves ramen with a rich creamy soup base, and has an option to upsize your dipping Cha Shu Tsukemen ($14.90) noodles by up to 5 times. That leaves you with a massive 600g bowl of noodles, sumo-worthy indeed!

Address: 1 Harbourfront Walk, 104, Singapore 098585
Opening Hours: 1130am – 10pm daily

2. Peachy’s in the secret Hideout


Teriyaki Grilled Chicken ($8)

Peachy’s is a halal establishment serving Western food which come in large portions at extremely affordable prices. With everything on the menu priced at $10 and under, you’ll feast like royalty here without burning a hole in your pocket.

Note that due to its limited seating capacity, a small queue may form. However, not to worry as the food is served quickly and makes for a high table turnover rate. For its taste, price, and quantity, a short wait is well worth it!

Address: 803 North Bridge Road Singapore 198771
Opening Hours: 3pm – 11pm
Tel: +65 6291 1128

3. Udon GOEN



Situated within Wisma Atria’s Food Republic, Udon GOEN sells a dish called the Japanese Ultimate Original Curry Rice ($19.80). It is essentially a platter of curry-bathed rice topped with crispy pork tonkatsu, chicken katsu, fried chicken, fried prawns, croquette, and a half-boiled egg.

It sounds impossible for one person to finish the whole thing himself, and you’re probably right. The dish is recommended for a group of 2-3 people, but you’re welcome to take up the challenge yourself! For all you big-but-not-THAT-big eaters, the stall also has other single-serve options which likewise come in sizable portions.

Address: 435 Orchard Road #04-02/14 Wisma Atria, Singapore 238877
Opening Hours: 10 am – 10 pm
Tel: +65 6420 6392

4. New Victory Restaurant


Mutton Murtabak ($17)

Most people think of the famous Zam Zam when they think of Murtabak, but its neighbor, Victory, also sells a pretty mean variation. Best of all, they have options that increase in size for all you hungry souls out there!

The largest is a family-sized Murtabak ($16/17) that comes double-wrapped in doughy goodness and stuffed with a whole lot of extra meat and egg. It’s delicious, and easily twice the size of your usual Murtabak!

Address: 701 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198677
Opening Hours: 7 am–11 pm daily
Tel: +65 6298 6955


5. Senmi Sushi



When I was younger, the thought of eating raw fish gave me the shivers – oh, what a poor silly child I was. Now, I absolutely love it! So imagine my glee when I discovered that there’s a restaurant nestled within Emporium Shokuhin that sells a gargantuan bowl of Japanese rice topped with fresh raw fish. Senmi Sushi’s Giant Chirashi Don ($34) is definitely large enough to feed 2 people, or 1 very hungry sumo.

Address: 6 Raffles Boulevard #01-18 Marina Square Singapore 039594
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 10pm daily

6. Ri Ri Hong Mala Xiang Guo



Most people associate ma la with the soup or hotpot, but this dry variation will win your heart over. That is, if you like the numbing sensation that comes with a fiery bowl of spicy stir fry. You can choose from a variety of ingredients, before the chef fries it all up with a special blend of spices. A note of caution though: this dish is not for the faint-hearted. The result is a huge bowl of chilli-laden goodness that packs a punch!

Meats and seafood are priced at $2-3, depending on your selection, while each type of vegetable costs $1. For less than $10, you can get a huge bowl like the one above!

Address: 32 New Market Road #01-1042 & #01-1052 People’s Park Food Centre Singapore 050032
Opening Hours: 11am – 9pm daily


7. Crab in Da Bag



All you seafood lovers out there, rejoice! Crab in Da Bag is one of the pioneers of Louisiana-style seafood in Singapore, and have gained for themselves a loyal following on our little island. Their signature Caboodle Boil, also called the Titanic Pot ($299++), is a glorious medley of seafood cooked in a gigantic pot. It is then poured directly onto the table, resulting in a mound of seafood for diners to heartily tuck into.

Although supposedly for 4 people, the array of crabs, prawns, lobsters, corn, mussels etc. can definitely feed more than that!

8. Spathe Public House



Spathe Public House is a restaurant that is perfect for communal dining; not only in terms of its welcoming interior, but also because of their “Mammoth Signatures”. What’s that? Well, it’s exactly as its name suggests: these are dishes that come in mammoth sizes!

We’re talking metre-long hot dogs and massive salads, designed for the consumption of 4-6 people. The picture above features their signature Mohamed Sultan Meter Dog ($55). To all you smaller eaters out there, don’t worry, the restaurant offers individual portions too!

9. The Manhattan Pizza Co



Most have heard about Peperoni’s and their huge pizzas, but have you heard of The Manhattan Pizza Co? Originating from New York, this restaurant offers individual pizza slices that measure 10 inches, or even a whole gigantic pizza totaling 20 inches. Instead of thin crust pizzas, they have thick crust pizzas, perfect for those who like dem’ chewy pizza bases.

The whole pizzas, or pies as the restaurant calls it, cost $35-45 depending on the flavours chosen.

Their signature ‘Sticky Bones’ ribs are slow-cooked to mouthwatering BBQ perfection, and come in substantial sizes served with a generous portion of thick-cut fries and coleslaw.

If that’s not enough, they also have sharing platters available that are fit for 4 hungry people. Or, 1 ravenous sumo.
