Who would think that Japanese-style pizza and skewers go well together? Have your fix at eGrill & Piza at The Cathay, which offers both options at affordable prices.

The restaurant uses RoboQ, a special machine from Hong Kong used to grill skewers in two minutes, with no oil. Prices start at $3.90, with items such as teriyaki pork belly, salmon belly fin and Beef Kottbullar (Swedish meatballs).

From the pizza menu (from $9.90), pick from salmon mentai, Parma ham and seafood, among other options. Add side dishes to your meal, such as truffle fries with truffle salsa ($8.80), potato salad ($2.80) and ebi tempura ($6.80).

Where: B1-01 The Cathay, 2 Handy Road

Open: 11.30am to 10pm daily

Head to SBCD Korean Tofu House at Tanjong Pagar Centre for its "soontofu" or Korean soft tofu soup. The tofu is made in-house daily and comes with four levels of spiciness for the broth. Ingredients for the soup (from $17.90) include seafood, ham and cheese, or dumplings.

Besides the usual side dishes, or banchan, of kimchi, seaweed, pickled green chillies and spicy squid strips, the restaurant also offers whole fried croaker fish.

Other mains on the menu include hot stone bibimbap ($19.90), spicy grilled chicken ($25.90) and spicy baby octopus ($29.90). Combo options - a main course and the tofu soup - are also available.

For all-day dining, head to the two-week-old Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar at the new Hotel G Singapore in Middle Road.

Start the morning with a buffet spread or take-away options, and move on to lunch with an affordable two-course set priced at $18++. The a la carte menu features dishes such as tostada chicken salad ($11), organic rotisserie chicken (from $12) and charcoal cheese burger ($19).

For dinner, start with cold cuts and cheese (from $30 for up to four people) and Fine de Claire oysters (from $5 each), followed by charcoal-grilled dishes such as Australian Angus beef cote de boeuf or bone-in prime rib ($120 for 1kg, for two people, picture), and organic lamb chops ($42).
