Under $15 Set Lunches Around Orchard Road
cheap lunch set orchard
Orchard Road is to Singapore what Champs Elysées is to Paris, and what Fifth Avenue is to New York City. To some, it’s the stuff dreams are made of – happiness presented to you in a perfectly wrapped shoe box (or ten). We say, save your dollars for your shopping, and dine at these affordable food places where you can get a cheap set lunch right smack in the heart of our most beloved shopping belt.
1. Tanuki Raw

Stop by Tanuki Raw and you’ll be guaranteed a satisfying lunch. Get the salmon don, which comes with freshly sliced sashimi, lightly seared aburi, plump ikura, all in a housemade spicy mayo and yakiniku sauce. The set also comes with miso soup, mixed green salad and green tea – all that yummy goodness, only for $14. Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road #02-03, Singapore 238896 (Image: Cheryl Chong)
2. Jew Kit

Jew Kit is a traditional Hainanese chicken rice eatery, which has been in Singapore for over two decades. Other than the outlet at Killiney, there’s also a branch at Upper Bukit Timah Road. And apart from the standard chicken rice and accompanying dishes, they have expanded to sell a wide variety of zichar items as well. From their variety of chicken rice sets, we like “Memories” – served with sides of kolopok, salted vegetables and cucumbers ($5.30). Round off your meal with a refreshing Pomelo drink, $2.20. 105 Killiney Road, Singapore 239546 (Image: Jew Kit Facebook Page)
3. Gyoza-Ya
You can have yourself a full meal at Gyoza-Ya for less than $15 – for your main, choose the fragrant garlic fried rice ($5.80), or the jyajya men ($6.50), which is sumptuously chewy. Order their signature dish, gyoza ($4.80, six pieces) for your side – this is available either fried or steamed. Top off your meal with a cup of tea ($1).

15. 49 Seats

This isn’t exactly a lunch set, but you can get a rather satisfying meal at 49 Seats for under $15 so we thought we’d include it anyway. For their outlet at Orchard Central, get the Seafood Marina at $10 nett (original price $13.90) or the Fish and Chips with Alscampi also at $10 nett (original price $16.90). Two thumbs up!
