To help you get started on this journey, we have identified five prominent foodies you’ll come across in your daily life (or perhaps it could be you). Based on each foodie’s behaviours and personality traits, we recommended a few places that are sure to satisfy your cravings. If you have that one friend who falls under one of the categories below, share this post with them!
1. The Bottomless Pit
Living by the quote “more is more”, this foodie’s stomach is a bottomless pit. Needless to say, they go for the value-for-money buffets. Chowing down unlimited meats, seafood, sushi, pasta, desserts, and more, they eat to their money’s worth. Pacing and strategising the order of food items is important to accommodate the variety of cuisines available at the buffet table.
If you love Japanese food, Shin Minori is the place to go. They offer a variety of Japanese a la carte dishes, from sushi to tempura to yakimono (grilled dishes) at a reasonable price. Eat to your heart’s content without splurging, that’s always the goal of the bottomless pit.
Seasonal Tastes features a generous buffet spread of classic international dishes, local favourites, and healthier options. Stuff yourself with hearty roasted meats, pasta with homemade sauce, and more. Finally, end the meal with an assortment of desserts.
2. The “Do it for the gram” Hipsters
“Camera, lights, action!” is this foodie’s ritual before every meal. Standing on chairs and taking a gazillion flatlays, they will go all out just to get that Instagram-worthy shot. These people are resourceful too, researching a particular cafe before their visit. Is the interior aesthetically pleasing? Is there natural sunlight? Do they serve mouthwatering brunch platters and latte art? You can bet these social media-obsessed foodies have their fronts covered.
This large communal dining space is the perfect spot to catch up with your friends or go on a casual date. Rest assured, your food photos against the beautiful backdrop with hanging foliages and natural lighting will turn out amazing. Serving up brunch food like Organic Eggs Iberico Ham Benedict and Creme Brulee French Toast, this cafe is a hipster’s food heaven.
Get your brunch fix at Populus with their recommended Buckwheat Pancakes or Roast Chicken Grain Bowl. Order from a selection of artisanal teas and coffees to complete your meal with that #foodporn shot. The wooden furnishings and chic interior give off a chill vibe that makes you not want to leave the place.
3. The “My diet starts tomorrow” Foodie
A day in the life of this foodie typically ends with a sinful meal. “My diet starts tomorrow” or “YOLO”, as they say. These people see salads as a side, never a main course. If you identify a dessert queen, a carbo loader, or a fast food addict, this category is for you – and you should own it!

“Cheers to the weekend!”, says this foodie. As the life of the party, this foodie loves mingling with friends over delicious drinks and great food. Every meal must be accompanied with an artisanal cocktail, draft beer, or fine wine. It is their way to relax and unwind after a long hard day at work.

5. The Adventurous Food Explorer
Unlike the picky eaters, the adventurous foodies keep their options wide and is unafraid to try new things; their motto is probably the more exotic, the better! They don’t go for the norm, instead they push boundaries and are the more creative individuals. These people love fusion dishes that excite their taste buds.
This is not your typical Japanese restaurant. Plum & Toro presents Japanese fusion dishes such as the Kaki Furai (deep fried oyster with sweet soy and sancho pepper) and Mekajiki (crispy fried breaded swordfish). Pleasing to the eyes and taste buds, there’s nothing you won’t love!
Lokkee churns out Chinese cuisine with the influence of American culture. Despite its red and black oriental interior, the Chinese brush paintings of Star Wars AT-ATs on the walls make it fun and quirky. Awesome Flaming Pineapple Beef and Firecracker Chicken Nest are a must-try when you visit Lokkee.
Surrounded by lush greenery, The Halia is an inviting space that serves a fusion mix of Asian and modern European cuisine. Give the Halia Chilli Crab Spaghettini and Ginger Nougat Parfait a go, adventurous foodies won’t be disappointed!
