This article gives some insight into food in Singapore. It doesn't look like super health food but does look yummy and affordable.

What /u/hypercat linked was quite accurate :) Our 'national dishes' tend to be rather high in fat but really delicious. However, any intelligent person knows that one is not supposed to eat those kinds of foods every day. These foods are very yummy but there are a plethora of calorie-wise, nutrient-dense dishes available as well, such as soup 'young tau fu' which are basically a kind of customized food bowl, where you select food items to be included as part of a main dish. Noodles and rice with fish soup are also popular 'healthy' dishes. Vegetarian food is also widely available. They are all tasty without sacrificing flavor. I hope that helps and should you visit my country, you should definitely try our local dishes. :D *oh but do be careful. To much fat, too many calories and all that jazz :) of course you know, unlike some people.... *rolls eyes.

Our national dishes are a confluence of different cultures. They taste very exciting due to the mixture of different ingredients and cooking heritages.(Chinese, Indian, Malay and more recently, European) At the same time, it was also a cuisine born out of poverty (at first) and necessity. That's why our local cuisine tends to be very flavorful while being made out of very humble raw ingredients. (Such as grains and various vegetables and meats. )

I imagine it means thier equivalent of a dollar menu gives you something more wholesome than a gristle patty in a bun with a slice of plastic cheese.
