This gov’t portal tells you the locations of budget meals

The website lists 40 coffee shops rented by HDB offering budget meals.

When inflation strikes, hungry Singaporeans will be needing affordable meals. This challenge was addressed by GovTech Singapore and HDB through the launch of BudgetMealGoWhere, which includes over 40 coffee shops offering budget meals.

“Budget meal options include lunch or dinner meals that are priced affordably as compared to the average price of meals sold at nearby eating establishments (can be HDB coffee shops or hawker centres),” read the FAQs posted on the website.

The meals are full meals and not side dishes or half-portion meals. 

A user may type their location in Singapore then the website will provide them with several restaurants with their menu and food prices.

Rental discount

Starting May 2023, HDB will create a provision of budget meals as part of the requirements for rental coffee shops when they renew their tenancies. As a support, HDB will offer a 5% rental discount for a year when the new requirements are implemented.

This requirement of budget meals was only introduced in new coffee shops tendered out in September 2018. 

HDB will also increase the number of coffee shops having budget meals and drinks every month, as operators renew or sign new tenancies with HDB.
