I work at the CBD, Shenton Way area and I am always on the look out for good food to fill my stomach during lunch time. Especially when we are all working hard in our careers. A good meal can make our day!
Here are my top 5 value for money eats around Shenton Way area. All walk-able distance, taking SGX as a reference point.

Must try: Shark meat lor mee $4/5
Really love the contents in the lor mee in which I have never come across any lor mee stalls that put so many items in the bowl. Firstly, the noodles are cooked to perfection, fried shark meat nuggets are tender and goes well with the broth. Fried wanton, slices of pork bellies, fritters, egg, and chili. A must try at Tanjong Pagar Plaza.

Must try: salmon sashimi don
Chanced upon this newly opened place at AXA tower. They sell super delicious and amazing dons. We ordered salmon sashimi don, pork jowl don and smoked salmon don. All at $9.90 each. The portion is just nice and most important very worth it. Look at that thick cut of salmon sashimi! They were previously located at Changi Business Park but now moved to Tanjong Pagar before the circuit breaker period. Do support them! The people serving us were super nice as well, they asked us which cut of salmon sashimi do we want.
We learnt from the servers that different parts of the salmon is leaner and other parts are fattier which makes the difference in taste.
