We gave ourselves a budget of $2.50 and below for every meal, and were left well-fed and pleasantly surprised.
With the increasing standard of living in this city, it is comforting to know that a tasty, substantial meal may still be had for no more than a few dollars. Those that made the cut are complete meals, a filling (sometimes healthy) plate of the best-budget eats in Singapore. Read and eat on.

BAK CHOR MEE | Ah Poh Minced Meat Noodles, $2.50 | Minced meat noodles for $2.50? Count this in! This small(er - the regular sized bowl is $3) but flavourful bowl at Fengshan Market and Food Centre's Ah Poh Minced Meat Noodles has three pork balls, sweet cloudy broth with fluffy minced meat, lardons and medium-thick noodles that are best slurped up by the soup-spoonfuls. The busy stall holders are very friendly too.
Celine Asril is guilty of taking pictures before tucking in to all her meals; it’s a (good) hazard of the job – this editor of HungryGoWhere never sits down to two of the same meals in a week.

When not battling with HTML, she can be found furiously stirring a pot of curry in her tiny kitchen, shopping online or looking for the next ‘hot new restaurant’.
