Do meals that are both affordable and satisfying still exist? Rising costs and inflation in Singapore have left many feeling the pinch. With that said, there are still lunch options that bring you the best of both worlds! 

SAFRA has a host of affiliated partners that deliver great-tasting set meals without that pang of regret when the final bill comes. Here, we share with you six amazing restaurant-quality lunch spots where you can still find that sweet spot between affordability and quality.

1. Keng Eng Kee Seafood: 15% off the total bill

Keng Eng Kee Seafood has been serving classic wok-fried staples for more than 63 years. And with an exclusive 15% off for SAFRA members, you can order up a feast. First-time diners should try their famous Curry Fish Head, with its fresh fish, accompanied by a myriad of vegetables and addictive curry gravy that can go a long way for an entire family of lunch diners. For a quick or solo meal, we recommend the Signature Moonlight Horfun or Sliced Fish Thick Beehoon Soup — expertly fried wide rice noodles, replete with “wok hei” and topped with a silky egg yolk, or fresh fish slices and slippery noodles in a comforting, wholesome broth.

Budget: From $8.40

3. Ajisen Ramen: 10% off a la carte menu

This intrepid ramen chain experienced a meteoric rise when it first came to Singapore. Today, Ajisen Ramen has 20 outlets in Singapore alone and 700 restaurants worldwide. 

While this eatery can be slightly pricier than some local ramen chains, there is a way to ensure that you keep both your wallets and bellies full. The SAFRA-exclusive discount entitles you to 10% off its a la carte menu. We recommend the Corn Chashu Ramen, with its savoury tonkotsu broth, corn, pork slices and a marinated egg, at only $10.80. For the same price, you can also get its Chashu Kimchi Ramen for that extra spicy and sour kick!

Budget: From $10.80

4. Fish & Co: 20% off takeaway orders

While Fish & Co. isn’t exactly known for its affordability, it is arguably one of Singapore’s best chain restaurants for a delicious pan of Mediterranean fish and chips. Most of its signature dishes are above the $20 price point, but you can easily circumvent this hefty price tag with some neat tricks and choices! 

If you’re looking for a seafood fix, we urge you to try their Mussels with Garlic Butter sauce. It may be categorised as a starter but trust us when we say that the portion is huge! Starting at $15, you can get this down to $12 with their takeaway promotion. Another option is its signature fried/grilled calamari, which goes for as low as $9.60 with the discount. 

We didn’t forget its delicious range of Fish and Chips! You can get one of its signature fish pans for a reasonable $16 if you opt for this takeaway promotion!
