Little boy in cable car to Sentosa, Singapore

Sentosa is one of the most beautiful man-made islands that never fails to satisfy. The top tourist destination attracts visitors with its beautiful beaches, parties and an array of activities. The beautiful beaches and countless  special events for both adults and kids are appealing. But not all travellers have enough budget to enjoy everything the island has to offer.

Contrary to popular belief, the island offers plenty of choices for the budget-concerned traveller. This is especially true for food. In fact, your $20 can go a long way with these picks:

Siloso Beach Picks

The beach walk is littered with numerous food stands. The Bikini Bar, for example, offers sinful delights your wallet will love. Their deep fried chicken rice balls ($12) and pork belly ($14) are worth the try. Cap the meal off with a tall glass of ice cold beer.

Do you love lounging around? The Coastes might be the best spot for you. Apart from the energetic beach vibes, it also serves affordable brunch meals. Satiate your love for breakfast with their eggs benedict ($18) or their berry-filled yogurt ($10).

Shangri-La’s 8 Noodles at Dine on 3

Your cravings for noodles might lead you to this special place, which sits in a secluded area in Rasa Sentosa Resort on the beach. If you want to ditch the usual pork or wanton noodles, 8 Noodles offers fish udon for $15.80. The meal comes with fresh slices of garoupa and delicious udon plus herbal broth.

Malaysian Food Street

The local fare at Malaysian Food Street is a  must-have for the traveller-on-a-budget. With its old world décor, visitors will feel as though they were transported to1960s Penang—with air conditioning. Popular picks in this food place are the Penang Lim’s Brothers Char Koay Teok ($5.50), Malacca Chicken Rice balls ($5) and Hokkien Mee ($6.60).

Who says Sentosa’s delicious picks are too expensive? Satisfy your taste buds without hurting your budget and choose your dining destinations well.
