Why visit? Known for its innovative flavours and messy sandwiches, 46 Mittsu is a must-try if you’re a sandwich lover. Just a few months after it relaunched at its new home in Everton Park, the sandwich maestros have revamped the menu to introduce customers to novel tastes. 

Price range: $$

Crowd faves: The B.E.C. (S$14) is an unbeatable classic loved by many, though with a new brioche base. A secret is to order the sandwich with hash (S$2). We also can’t wait to try Disco Jangjang (S$15), a sandwich made with pork shabu-shabu, romaine lettuce, smashed cucumber and scrambled eggs. 

3. Soon Heng Pork Noodles

And we’d like to let you in on a little secret: Soon Heng Pork Noodles’ recipe comes from that very stall, so you won’t have to make the trek to Bedok for your bak chor mee fix with this Outram Park food spot. 

Price range: $

Crowd faves: The stall sells just one thing: Bak chor mee. It’s available in small (S$5) and large sizes (S$6). The noodles can also be selected based on your preference, though we’re partial to the mee kia (thin egg noodles).

Why visit? Afterglow’s entire menu is plant-based, making it a suitable spot for those with strict dietary restrictions. And while we may have the pre-conceived notion that plant-based foods are boring or atypical, Afterglow’s offerings certainly overturn that stereotype. 

Price range: $$

Crowd faves: If you’ve never had a cauliflower “steak” (S$25), now’s your chance. The baked cauliflower is imbued with a deep and comforting flavour. It’s served with sweet potato mash, pumpkin seeds and more, to add variety to the dish — not too different from a regular steak, we suppose. Otherwise, go for salads such as Kyoto Summer (S$16).

Why visit? Peep another hidden gem nestled in the heart of Everton Park: Morimori Yogashi. The bakery is helmed by former pastry chef, Terrian Lim, who left his job at a one-Michelin-starred Japanese-Italian restaurant, Terra Tokyo Italian, to open his very own artisanal Japanese bakery in the heartlands. 

At first glance, the patisserie near Outram Park doesn’t look all that eye-catching. However, set foot into the store, and you’ll be greeted by the aromatic fragrance of bread baking in the oven. The display is also impressive, for it showcases a vast array of baked goods and confectioneries at affordable prices.

Price range: $

Crowd faves: You have to try Morimori Yogashi’s bestselling item: The signature Fijusawa garlic cheese bread (two small pieces for S$6, one big piece for S$8). It’s a fluffy bread chock-full of Japanese mayo, creamy butter and mozzarella cheese topped with garlic crumbs.
