Often finding yourself scrolling through random listicles for the best food deals? Or simply referring to the same food articles you’ve bookmarked since January when it comes to picking out eateries?

Yeap, we totally feel your pain. So instead of the endless scrolling/swiping, we are proud to announce that we’ll be bringing forth a series of articles on best food places under $15 at a selected area.

We’ve put together a list of eateries, ranging from restaurants to hawker centres, in the CBD that offer decent meals for under $15. You’re very welcome.

Stuffed with whole prawns, chunks of chicken and rice noodles-all wrapped in a Vietnamese rice paper, this is an appetiser that does more than just whet one’s appetite. Image Credit: burpple
