2. PS.Cafe

PS.Cafe at East Coast Park is also known as PS.Cafe By The Sea. Factually true, of course, but I also love the name for the lovely images that it conjures in my head.

PS.Cafe does all it can to reinforce that image, too. White-washed walls mirror the sand and spray while the ocean blue upholstery echoes the water. Pair all that with bright, airy spaces marked with vibrant greenery and you begin to understand why this cafe is so popular.

There is a breakfast menu as well as an all-day menu. The first is available till 11am on weekdays and 10am on weekends. If you’re famished, the PS. Big Breakfast is for you. You get 2 eggs (poached, fried or scrambled), smoked bacon, wilted spinach, buttered toast, baked beans with angus/pork sausage, cherry tomato, rocket & basil salad with honey truffle dressing. Mmmmm!

Wash down their Bunwiches (hehe I love this name, too) and bakery items with Coffee & Chocolate drinks, Cold Pressed Juices, Crushed Fruit Sodas, Floats and Kombucha.

Those drinks appear on the all-day menu, too. From the Mains, try the Tiger Beer-battered Fish & Chips. A burger person? There’s the PS. Burger of Australian barley-fed Angus patty, vintage cheddar, wilted spinach, crispy smoked bacon and shoestring fries. The other burger option is the PS. Impossible Burger with its Impossible patty, vintage cheddar, wilted spinach, sauteed mushrooms and shoestring fries.

They also have a Junior menu for kids under 12.

 3. Bakery & Bar St. Marc 

ecp - cafe

Bakery & Bar St. Marc is a cosy Japanese cafe and bar with a variety of popular dishes, serene decor and really wide assortment of desserts.

Heading the Mains is a selection of 9 Mochi Pastas. No, they aren’t all made from the sweet Japanese rice cake; it refers to the chewy, bouncy texture of the fresh pasta.

ecp - bowl of pasta

Carbonara Mochi Pasta (S$17) of cream sauce, pork bacon, raw egg and Parmigiano is easily my favourite. The regal Sepia Nero Mochi Pasta (S$22) with squid, squid ink sauce, clam, cream and cherry tomatoes is perfect for the seaside location.

Bite into their burger mains that include the St. Marc Wagyu BBQ Burger (S$26) of wagyu, bacon, BBQ sauce, onion jam, pickles and cheese in a brioche bun served with skinny fries. The Breaded Fish Burger (S$18) and Breaded Chicken Burger (S$18) are lighter on both your tummy and your wallet.

There is a vegetarian section of soups, salads and finger foods such as Truffle Fries (S$15), Spring Roll 10pc (S$10) and Salsa Cheesy Nacho (S$15). Vegos have 2 Mains options— Vegetarian Aglio Olio Mochi Pasta (S$15) and Pomodoro Basil Mochi Pasta (S$15).

If you have a sweet tooth, there is no better place to indulge. They have pastries, waffle cone gelato ice cream, waffle ice cream, waffle cone softserves, parfaits and much, much more!

4. Patros Sports Bar & Restaurant

Patros Sports Bar & Restaurant certainly lives up to the “sports” part of its name, particularly where cricket is concerned. Expect a perpetual crowd of wicket watchers from the West and the subcontinent during match season.

Patros serves North Indian and Mexican cuisine, a combination that works better than first impressions suggest. There are East Asian influences as well. You’ll see that in the appetisers menu with Chilli Prawns and the Chilli Chicken, both of which are cooked in Szechuan sauce.

Being an Indian restaurant, Patros definitely has vegetarian options. Share the Tandoori Khazana platter of vegetables marinated in rich spices, then tandoor-baked. The Banarasi Seekh Kebab swaps meat with spice-marinated veggies on skewers.

There are several options each of Samundari Curries (seafood curries), Lamb Curries and Chicken Curries. That’s besides the 15 or so vegetable curries they whip up.

Curries go best with rice and Patros Sports bar & Restaurant has 4 different types of Rice and another 4 of Biryani for you to try. 15 varieties of naan, roti, paratha and kulcha complete the Indian Bread menu.

The Mexican menu has Nachos (Prawn, Beef, Chicken or Vegetables) served with beans, jalapenos, guacamole, olives and salsa. Their Spicy Mexican Wings are a popular order, as are the Fried Calamari. The other mainstay of Mexican food, tacos are available as Mexican Tacos (3 pcs) or a Taco Platter (6 pcs) with prawns, beef, chicken, cheese, mushroom and vegetable tacos.

5. Kebab Station

Kebab Station celebrates 20 years in Singapore this year. For the 2 decades, it has been the only place along the ECP to get your fill of authentic Turkish cuisine. Dishes are prepared in their signature charcoal grill kitchen under the supervision of a chef with 30 years of experience.

By far, my favourite element of Middle Eastern cooking is basically anything with falafel. Here, I always ask for the Falafel with Dips (S$13.90), which comes with a pair of dips to dress up your crispy falafel balls.

ecp - pita

Another great way to start is with bread and dips. Basic Pita Bread (S$3.50) works fine for me but the Cheese Bread (S$9.90) is lovely, too. To accompany, I suggest the Mixed Dips (S$21.90). It includes humus, cacik, salsa, avocado and baba ganus, and comes with lavash bread.

For seafood, your grilled fish options are Grilled Salmon (S$27.90), Grilled Sea Bass (S$30.90) and Grilled Mackerel (S$23.90). there is Baked Rice— Chicken (S$11.90), Lamb (S$12.90) and Beef (S$12.90). Kebab Station also serves pasta, pizzas and desserts.
