From burgers and ramen to festive desserts, we have you covered for the month of December.
Walk into B Burger and you’ll spot brightly coloured pop-art palm trees, artsy murals, skateboards, Vans sneakers and 80s band paraphernalia decking the space.

From the same company behind Atmosphere Bistro and Jin Ho Mia, comes Ramen Tenji. Located at The Seletar Mall, the eatery is decorated with many old-school posters to exude a Japan alleyway ramen store vibe.

Their black garlic tonkotsu ramen ($15.90) and red spicy tonkotsu ramen ($15.90) are must-tries for those who prefer a stronger taste. #01-28 The Seletar Mall, 33 Sengkang West Avenue. Tel: 6581 2190
