Where to Eat in Singapore Jun 30, 2011
Tired of eating hotel food or having your usual McD’s when you head down to Singapore?
Fret not. Let a local tell you where else you can go...besides the typical tourist-laden places such as Newton Circus & Glutton Bay...
Here are a few places you can head down to...
The prices depend on which restaurants/food joints you decide to choose at these places...
Has hidden surprises of local fares selling at damn affordable prices e.g. Sedap Corner...it’s a place to just kick back & chill in your t-shirts & shorts/jeans (like any other typical Singaporeans do...so please don’t dress up too much) & open your flybutton when your tummy’s about to explode from all the good food...
-Chomp Chomp Food Centre at Serangoon Gardens
One of the best places to find good & cheap food in Singapore...like Simpang Bedok, it sells local food such as our favourite nasi lemak (coconut milk-based rice, with side dishes) & char kway teow (fried noodles)
One of my personal favourite places to go, especially from Friday to Sunday nights for the chill factor...great place to have your Shisha & watch your soccer matches...it is also an ideal place for travellers looking for halal food e.g. Fika, which serves Swedish food, Le Bistro Parisien, which serves French food &...not forgetting Zam Zam’s (opposite the Sultan Mosque). Both locals & internationals whom I brought to this place absolutely love their worth-for-value dishes such as the famous murtabak (pan-fried bread loaded with meat/chicken/mutton, whatever rocks your boat). There’s also watering holes for foreign expats at the backalleys & unique vintage clothes shopping for the ladies...
A popular hangout for foreign expats during the weekend is Holland Village. You also get a wide range of food...such as Al-Qasr for its Lebanese food, Chinese dim sums at Crystal Jade Kitchen, Amici Authentic Italian Restaurant for its erm, duh, Italian-o food & Hansang Korean Charcoal Barbeque (need I explain?). And once your tummy is filled up, drop by the bars like Harry’s or Wala Wala, where they have awesome live bands playing classic rock songs to a small crowd at 10.30pm onwards...
A walking distance from Chinatown, it’s an awesome place to explore its traditional shophouses architecture in the daytime. Great finds include those delectable, delicate cakes at Flor Patisserie, awesome bookstore at Littered with Books, restaurants & bars such as The Toucan Irish Pub as well as Broth.
And if you have the pennies (more like bills, & lots of it...) to spare, have a go at the upscale Buyan Russian Haute Cuisine & Caviar Bar...
-Ann Siang Hill
Walk around from Duxton & you can easily reach Ann Siang Hill...don’t forget your camera to take a shot of its charming, quirky shops such as K.Ki for your Japanese-inspired cakes & Shots for your coffee-fix...there’s also a few restaurants around that might catch your fancy...can be a quiet though, at times...
A place where you will need a cab or car to access (should be a cheap 10 min ride away from your Buona Vista MRT train station)...it’s definitely worth it for its restaurants, bars & some lifestyle-concept places. Places such as the CM-PB Contemporary Melting Port and Bar, Houses@ Barracks, Au Petit Salut, PS Cafe & your all-time favourite Ben & Jerry’s...are a sure-hit places.
A place billed as the next Dempsey Hill...Rochester Park has some of the best restaurants around such as Graze, Da Paolo Bistro Bar & One Rochester...Do be prepared to bring a fat wallet for some meals though.
-Marina Bay Sands
Aaaah, not only can you get to see the new gigantic structure called the Marina Bay Sands, go into their casino or museum, chill out at their bars at Ku De Ta or go all the way up to the 57th floor to take photos of the Singapore skyline at the Sky Park..you get good food too....there’s a range from fine dining to casual dining places here...even famous chefs like Wolfgang Puck, Guy Savoy made their mark in Singapore at CUT and Guy Savoy respectively, along with casual eateries such as Pizzeria Mozza.
Last but not least, not forgetting, the local hawker food centres that you can ask a local to bring you to their friendly neighbourhood (have a look at where the locals live & shop!), if you don’t mind dressing down just to have awesome food for a mere SGD$3-5, such as the one at Jurong West Street 51...
There are lots more food places to go to in Singapore...the list is endless! But it all depends on what you are looking for...beep me if you need any more ideas! Have a great time gaining those few pounds in Singapore...:)
