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 a certified Katong/East Coast hoodster, let me simplify for you the best of the best.
“Hong Kong cafés reinvented”
Sifu debuts in Singapore’s Bugis Junction to bring us an innovative twist to the classic Hong Kong style dining scene, striving to challenge the boundaries of casual dining. Complete with dishes such as the all-time Hong Kong favourite, beef brisket stew, to delectable freshly baked pillow buns from their very own bunnery, SIFU brings customers a variety of comfort meals at pretty affordable prices.
“Keeping Heritage Alive”
InterContinental Singapore is located right beside Bugis Junction shopping mall, and provides an accessible, convenient luxury hotel stay for guests. Near to the city, MRT, supermarket, cinema, restaurants, InterContinental hotel is the absolute definition of prime location.
“Casual dining not just on a Saturday”
Nestled along a quaint corner along Upper Paya Lebar Road is Saturday House, with a big, bright broadway-style ‘Saturday’ leading the way. With Sunday Market just around the corner, we were intrigued to check out Saturday House for what they had to offer. I mean, Saturday literally comes before Sunday right.
“New York’s Iconic Deli in Singapore”
It was the love for amazing New York deli food that led a husband and wife team to set up Sacha & Sons. And it seems that their customers share the same passion because in the months that follow, Sacha’s take on New York deli food has garnered a following of its own. The afternoon I was there, they had a steady stream of lunch time crowd, testament to its success.
“A star reborn in the North”
The Suki Group has just launched and revamped Sakura International Buffet at Yio Chu Kang Stadium – aimed at bringing food aficionado for a gourmet tour around-the-world (more than 100 varieties from 7 countries to be exact!). Before we go into the yummy details, it was an impressive media invite event held on the 22nd January 2015 with a lion dance opening and tossing yu sheng for good luck at this new reopening!
