Cafe food are notorious for being overpriced, but a cafe in Bishan offers surprisingly affordable dishes that cost less than $15.
That cafe in question is Good Bites, an aesthetically pleasing eatery hidden within Bishan Sports Centre that shows cheap eats are not necessarily found in dingy, hole-in-the-wall restaurants.
Good Bites, which received its halal certification earlier this year, is the latest sister brand of familiar neighbourhood cafes Citrus By The Pool in Woodlands and Citrus Bistro in Sengkang.
All three eateries are located within Sports Centres.
Healthy bowls for less
Situated in a venue that is all about fitness, it makes sense for Good Bites to offer meal options to those who want to embark on healthy eating.
From homemade soups, healthy bowls to customisable salads, health conscious diners can eat right and be rewarded with nutritious goodness and taste.
In particular, the healthy bowls come in three protein options and only cost $15 each.
- Roasted Herb Chicken (herb & citrus chicken and brown rice)
- Prawn Salsa Bowl (prawns with pineapple salsa)
- Baked Salmon Bowl (baked salmon with soba noodles)
For something lighter, go for the House Salad ($8.90) or Caesar Salad ($6.90). Optional add-ons start from $1 only.
Signature pasta, burgers and milkshakes
Diners who have been to sister cafes Citrus by The Pool or Citrus Bistro might be familiar with signature items such as the Tom Yum Pasta ($13.90), Fried Chicken & Waffle ($15.90), Baked Salmon ($16.90) and BIG Boss Burger ($17.90).
Good news: These popular dishes are also found in Good Bites’ menu.
On top of that, expect to find the cafes’ range of Mighty Milkshakes starting from $8.90.
We highly recommend the Caramel Popcorn Milkshake ($9.90) and Snickerhead Milkshake ($10.90), but really, each and every one of the milkshakes is pure indulgence.
For desserts, skip everything else and just go for the Molten Chocolate Lava Cake ($10.90) which is one of the ooziest lava cake you will ever find in Singapore.
Good food, good vibes
Perhaps the only thing that differentiates Good Bites from its sister cafes is its noticeably prettier decor.
The cafe is decked in an almost fully Scandinavian outfit: think marble tables, sleek brass fixtures, and plenty of plants.
Booth seatings line one side of the cafe, perfect for group diners.
There is also a seating area that is made up of retro Merdeka string lounge chairs which add a touch of nostalgia to the place.
However, getting to this quaint cafe proves to be quite the challenge for first time visitors.
Here’s a handy video guide to show you the way:
And if you are coming from the carpark:
Good Bites is MUIS halal certified and is located at 5 Bishan Street 14, #03-01 Bishan Sports Hall, Singapore 579783.
