If we speak about unique restaurant locations, Spruce will definitely be on the list. Tucked in the former parking lot of fire trucks at Bukit Timah Fire Station, Spruce has been diligently serving quality and wholesome Italian and American comfort classics up till supper hours. With lush greenery surrounding the quaint yet chic restaurant, both your tastebuds and sights will be in for a feast.
For starters, the fried calamari and Polpette al Pomodoro (Classic Italian Meatballs in Tomato Sauce) make for a great combination to increase your appetite. Calamaris used are fresh, crispy and well-seasoned. Dry meatballs are a great bummer but you will be pleased to know that this does not apply at Spruce!
They have a huge variety of mains ranging from fish, burgers to pasta. The Pan-Seared Sea Bass Fillet is a good option for those who are watching what they eat. The fillet is hidden under a bunch of crunchy vegetables, making it a dish which is excellent in texture. The Spruce burger comes in a pretty presentation with a sunny side up egg upon request. Tip: Ask for the patty to be cooked the way you like having your meat!
The pasta at Spruce is all made fresh from scratch daily in the kitchen. Casarecce Norcina is a dish consisting of spinach homemade green pasta and cooked with tomato sauce, asparagus and ricotta cheese. Definitely worth the try!

Hooters is far from being family-friendly but you cannot deny that they have one of the best service and hospitality from the moment you step into the restaurant till you step foot outside. Apart from the impeccable service, they are also known for their wings! It seems like they are never planning to stop doing great things with their food and the constant great reviews is living proof to that.
Hooters serves up deliciously sinful wings that taste even better when shared with a crowd. The wings come in pieces of ten or twenty with a ton of sauce selections to choose from. After, you get to choose 3 different dressings to dip your chicken in.
Gloriously thick-coated wings and dips? Sounds too good to be true. If you prefer spice in your food, do opt for the hot sauce and mild sauce for the perfect balance between spicy and tangy. The Buffalo Platter - wings, shrimps, boneless wings and drumsticks - is an even greater choice if you were to come in on a Friday night or weekends with an even larger group of friends.

10. Srisun Express
Srisun Express has been serving Singaporeans delectable flavours from South India since 2004 and has expanded islandwide. They are reputable for their crispy on the outside yet fluffy on the inside Prata and have slowly added over 50 Prata flavours such as cheese, chocolate, kaya, milo and more. Quality Indian food at affordable prices, that is what Srisun Express is for you. Today, they have gone beyond authentic South Indian cuisine and have ventured into local, Malaysian and Thai seafood dishes.
The Prata Bom with Cheese is the epitome of a perfect dish for all cheese fanatics. This dish combined with condensed milk is reminiscent of the Thai toasts you can find on the streets of Bangkok and makes for a savoury Prata. If you want to try something different but not too crazy, settling on Coin Prata is the way to go. These are basically miniature roti prata but with a ton more crisp and crunch. The Garlic Naan by itself is fragrant enough but when dipped in Butter Chicken, it will taste like heaven on your tongue.
End off your order by getting the Srisun Express exclusive tower drink that holds up to three litres of iced beverages like Milo, Nescafe, Bandung, Teh-C and more! Fun fact: These towers are equivalent to ten to twelve regular-sized mugs!
