Don’t let these restaurants intimidate you with their chic facades and the extensive wine displays scare you because many of the eateries nestled along Greenwood Avenue offer great nosh at not-so-exorbitant prices. What’s more, the quiet and relaxing vibe of the neighbourhood provides a great escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Many restaurants have come and gone over the years in this enclave so here is our updated food guide to Greenwood Avenue.

There have been more and more halal eateries popping up all around Singapore in recent months, which is great because that means more places to eat out with our Muslim friends!
A relatively new addition to that list, a must-try if you’re a fan of beef and Japanese food, is Gyunion. This humble hole-in-the-wall Japanese eatery sells authentic, Halal-Certified Japanese cuisine with ingredients that are directly sourced from Japan. So, if you’re looking for somewhere new to feast on some hearty Japanese food, this is definitely a place to consider.
Specialising in a variety of authentic Korean fare from its homemade noodles (guksu), Korean fried chicken and even their signature Korean-style hot pot (jeongol), Guksu over at Suntec City is a tribute of all things traditional.
This new-age Korean Restaurant also happens to be the first specialised Jeongol house in Singapore and although their menu boasts mainly stews and noodle dishes—including the highly popular hae shin tang and yuk gae jang meon—their Korean fried chicken wings are a must-try as well.
So round up your squad, whether they may be Korean food enthusiasts or simply your beer-drinking buddies because Guksu is a restaurant worth checking out.
Tucked away on a street in Samcheong-dong in Seoul, GLOBO Coffee Faktory is an unassuming cafe front with a gorgeous secret hideout deep within it. If you stroll into the cafe, you will be greeted by a massive coffee roaster as the cafe roasts their own beans.
We knew we had to have a taste of their coffee after being pleasantly overwhelmed by the aroma of coffee beans. Little did we know that deeper into the cafe, is a patio with indoor and alfresco seating with natural sunlight streaming in. How delightful!
The patio at the back of the cafe is probably one of the most photogenic spots we have stumbled upon in Seoul, South Korea. The quiet and intimate ambience makes the patio a great place to sit and relax for a bit while sipping on some amazing coffee.
