You’ve tried every café in our Ultimate Singapore Café Guide that covers the West, East, North, as well as North-East and Central Singapore, and you’ve filled your Instagram feed with your dining escapades that include envy-inducing views. So… What now?
How about some epic food portions that will put you and your friends’ stomachs to the test? Here are 8 places that tout massive servings that are great for groups, or if you’re brave and hungry enough, for just you.
1. 289 Xiang Ji Roasted Delights
One of Singapore’s iconic dishes, you can find chicken rice all over the country, and for good reason. Everybody from foreigners to local uncles and aunties adores this delicious dish. But how much do you love chicken rice? Could you maybe scarf down a 3kg serving in one sitting?
Prove your love at 289 Xiang Ji Roasted Delights. It hosts a Mega Chicken Rice challenge that gives you the massive plate, worth $28, for free if you can finish it all by yourself. For those who would rather watch your friends attempt this, don’t forget to order some of the excellent char siew that has just the right amount of char so it remains crispy on the outside, while the fatty meat remains succulent.
Find it at 289H Bukit Batok Street 25, Singapore 657289.

2. The Beast
The Beast Burger ($125++) is a 7-pound monstrosity that contains (drumroll please):
- 1.6 pounds of juicy beef patty
- 1 pound of slow cooked pulled pork
- 1 pound of Southern buttermilk fried chicken, topped with slaw, lettuce, and tomato
All sandwiched between a 9-inch sesame bun. And of course, what burger meal would be complete without a bucket of sweet potato fries on the side? Mere mortals can share the burger between 4 diners. But if you want to be immortalised on their Wall of Fame, feel free to take on The Beast Burger Challenge and manage to finish it within the time limit, your meal will be free and you’ll get your name added to the Wall of Fame.
If you and your hungry friends are still hungry, The Beast hosts All You Can Eat Chicken Tuesdays, where you get to enjoy juicy Southern Fried Chicken as well as unlimited cornbread, sides, and dessert too!
Served in what can only be described as a trough, Eight Signatures Seafood Restaurant’s seafood platter is truly a sight to behold. You’ve got flower crabs, fried goby, all sorts of shellfish, and tiger prawns – all meticulously prepared and assembled with vegetables. Top it all off with a delicious broth (you can choose between garlic soy, mala, tom yum, or curry) for maximum satisfaction. The restaurant prides itself on using the freshest seafood available, which explains why the resulting seafood broth is always so sweet.
And if you’re wondering if a single person can finish the largest seafood platter that Eight Signatures has, click here to watch local competitive eater Zermatt Neo demolish one. #goals.
4. T Bob’s Corner
Our voracious meat lovers and Muslim friends will be pleased to know that T Bob’s Corner is the place to be for Western fare that is Halal-friendly. And T Bob doesn’t play around when it comes to their “Sharing” options: from a 1 kg platter of lamb cutlets to a 1 kg T-bone steak served with their famous bone marrow, you and your friends will definitely be satisfied if you’re feeling carnivorous. For the particularly ravenous, the star of T Bob’s Corner is a massive 1.4 kg bone-in Angus Tomahawk that supposedly feeds 4 individuals, but no one’s stopping you from trying to finish it by yourself.
Find it at 527 Bedok North Street 3, #01-514, Singapore 460527.

5. Little Diner
Little Diner is a laid-back restaurant modelled after New York City’s Lower East Side, so expect generous American-style fare with urban-chic decor. And when we say American-style, we mean it in every possible way, right down to their portion sizes. For example, there’s nothing “little” about the enormous Empire Burger that stands at almost a head tall.
Little Diner’s Empire Burger ($55++) is a sandwich loaded with 3 beef patties, bacon, a good mix of swiss and cheddar cheese, caramelised onions, plenty of lettuce and tomatoes, pickles, and a fried egg, with a side of thick-cut fries and house salad. Whew, that was a mouthful. It’s good for a group of 3 to 4 people, but you can take up the Empire Burger Challenge. If you manage to finish the entire thing in 20 minutes, you’ll earn mad props and a free meal. If you can’t finish it within the time limit, you’ll have to pay for the burger. On the bright side, the good folks at Little Diner will throw in a free dessert. That is if you can still stomach dessert.
If you a-dough pizza as much as we do, how about ordering an XXL 21” pie from Peperoni Pizzeria? Enough to feed 4-6 people, it’s perfect for a small party or family get-together. Make sure you’ve got lots of space in your car though, because the pizza box is so huge that it doesn’t fit on a standard delivery man’s motorcycle, so you’ll have to pick it up yourself.
Choose from options like the tried and tested Classico flavours, or treat yourself to something more premium with the Speciale flavours. Can’t decide? Do the half-and-half or follow your stomach and order two serparate XXLs instead.

Roadhouse is a casual diner that prides itself on serving all-American classics: milkshakes and customisable burgers. It’s also home to the 1 kg Terminator Burger Challenge that’s almost as intimidating as Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The burger has 6 beef patties, grilled in a mighty Josper grill to seal in the juices and impart a nice, smoky sear. The stack also includes cheese, streaky bacon, jalapeños, and coleslaw, all between homemade sesame buns. Finish this tasty burger within 20 minutes – the sea of fries included – and it’s free. Plus, you’ll earn eternal glory on the Roadhouse Wall of Fame. Our recommendation: skip breakfast and wear stretchy pants.
8. Senmi Sushi
If you’re always checking out our Japanese Restaurant Guide for the best places to satisfy your sushi or sashimi cravings, then you’re going to want to visit Senmi Sushi – especially if you love chirashi don. And by love, we mean so much that you’ll want to swim in one of them.
Senmi Sushi’s Giant Chirashi Don is brimming with salmon, tuna, swordfish, salmon roe, tamago, and plenty of cucumber for a nice crunch. And while they recommend sharing it between 2 to 3 diners, it is also perfectly sized for hungry individuals who always complain that the standard chirashi don serving is too small. If you wish to #treatyoself, the Giant Premium Chirashi Don will see your akami (tuna back) upgraded to chūtoro (medium fatty tuna), plus the addition of scallops and amaebi (sweet shrimp) that is sure to make you go oishii!
Find it at 6 Raffles Boulevard, Marina Square #01-18, Singapore 039594.
