With this in mind, we believe that hanging out in Commonwealth and trying out these highly-rated restaurants in the area are worth a visit during the weekend.

Value for money depends on whether you received great value for an item you paid for. Indulgence stands out among many other hawker stalls in Tanglin Halt Food Centre because it offers so much proportion and flavor at an affordable price. 

Get the best pasta and grilled chicken breast combinations available, such as their best-selling carbonara and Bolognese chicken meals. Many reviewers find Indulgence’s chicken chop proportions to be the best out there when it comes to pasta and chicken.

2. Mr. Lee Braised Duck and Chicken
