Joo Chiat is undeniably the most charming neighbourhood in Singapore. With an eclectic mix of new and old, it exudes a charm like no other.
Take a walk down those lines of heritage buildings and shophouses in Joo Chiat and you’ll be greeted by a juxtapose of old-school merchants and new-age cafes. It’s like a mystery and a discovery with every step you take.
Needless to say, this is every food lover’s haven. The sheer number of options is exhilarating, and if you don’t know where to start, here’s our Joo Chiat food guide featuring 22 restaurants, cafes & eateries in the neighbourhood.
Established in 2012, Flock Cafe is a family-run rustic café in Tiong Bahru which serves a range of all-day-breakfast dishes and coffee.
It has just opened a new outlet in the east of Singapore at Tanjong Katong this week.
Popular lifestyle cafe, PS.Cafe has opened a new outlet at i12 Katong in the east of Singapore on 24 May 2022.
Opened by the same team behind Atlas Coffeehouse, Supernova is a new restaurant & cafe which has joined the ever-growing list of cafes in the east in Singapore. It is located at 266 Tanjong Katong Road along the same stretch of eateries including Ponggol Nasi Lemak, Trattoria L’Operetta, Kazo Cafe and Eng’s Wantan Noodle.
Supernova officially opened its doors to the public today (20 April 2022).
Located at The Yards (the former site of the old Telok Kurau Primary School) in Joo Chiat Place, The Brewing Ground is a pet-friendly cafe that offers all-day brunch and drinks.
Playing on the various definitions of the word ‘brew’, The Brewing Ground offers not only good coffee and beer, but it is also a space for the community to gather.
Jiggly, airy and soft, soufflé pancakes are one of the most legendary hybrids in the history of desserts. It doesn’t matter if you can barely stand after your meal — you’ll always have space for this lightweight indulgence.
Singapore has seen many cafes serving up these cloud-soft pancakes. People just can’t seem to get enough of them. But, just when you thought you’ve seen them all, another cafe strikes again. 19 Tea, a popular chain in South Korea known for its soufflé pancakes and tea has opened at Our Tampines Hub.
Their souffle pancakes are some of the most wallet-friendly ones we’ve seen — any one of them will set you back at less than $5!
The moment someone mentions the East side of Singapore, our minds are undoubtedly reminded of food and cosy cafes. After all, the East area is home to an abundance of artisanal dessert studios, restaurants and bars. But MOD Café is a newly-opened cafe that caught our attention.
