1. Fei Pa Burger: Taiwanese-inspired burgers with salted egg, wasabi, kimchi, mango and other varieties!

These are not your usual buns filled with thick meat patties and the usual cheese and mayo. This creative burger joint lets you choose between having salted egg sauce, kimchi slices, fresh mango cubes or even wasabi on top of your meat patties!

You can even opt for rice with exactly the same ingredients as you get for burgers, only that you are replacing buns with rice!

Price range: From RM 8.90 (approximately S$2.90)

2. Curries and seafood soups served in coconut!

Boiled soup served in coconut isn’t completely rare, but it’s still not easy to find. Sometimes, you can really taste the mild aroma of the coconut flesh in your soup! This one serves up curries, seafood soup with wolfberries and other boiled comforting goodness in coconut husks!
