“Beyond Average Provision Shop”
As its name suggests, The Provision shop is nestled amidst the quaint flats of Everton Park, just like your usual old school provision shop in the neighbourhood. However, what makes it so outstanding, is not just the wonderful food and homely interior, but also the very fact that The Provision Shop pays the closest attention to the sources of their ingredients.

“Catalan By The Bay”
If you have heard of “elBulli”, it means either you have dined there before (you lucky devil!) or you have been watching too much TLC Asia. For the uninitiated, elBulli was a Michelin 3-star restaurant synonymous with molecular gastronomy.
Under the stewardship of its head chef, Ferran Adrià, it went from a 1 star establishment to 3 stars. The restaurant shut down in 2011, but due to its successful book sales and talks, it reopened in 2014 as a training/research centre and all-round innovation lab focusing on gastronomy.
“The good new among old charms”
Located in a charming mature estate and surrounded by quaint small shops is Flock Cafe’s second outlet. Their Ghim Moh’s outlet adds a certain zest to the neighbourhood. We can imagine ourselves flocking over for a cup of iced coffee after running errands around the area.
Given the wide variety of restaurants, food outlets and such sprouting up in the Tanjong Katong neighbourhood, one is definitely spoilt for choice with the huge number of options here. But amongst all these, which are the ones that are actually worth the visit?
As a certified Katong/East Coast hoodster, let me simplify for you the best of the best.
