Alexandra Road spans approximately 4.5 kilometres and several train stations—namely Redhill, Queenstown and Labrador Park—are close to this stretch of road. Most Singaporeans travel to this neighbourhood to purchase furniture, buy sports shoes, service their cars, but venture further and you will discover a treasure trove of old and new dining destinations.
From Keng Eng Kee Seafood, Love Confectionery, Queensway Lau Tan Tutu Kueh, The Bakehouse by Carpenter and Cook to Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee, here is our Alexandra Neighbourhood Food Guide—16 Cafes, Hawkers & Restaurants You Should Dine At.
Gone are the days when diners have to refer to printed pamphlets or make a call to enquire about a particular restaurant’s ongoing festive promotions. This procedure is troublesome and let’s be frank—how many of us can remember all the details from a quick phone call?

With Lunar New Year around the corner, check out Celebrateatpark.com—it curates exciting dining options and offers by the restaurants under Park Hotel Group.
But of course, beyond these festive promotions, there will always be exciting deals for other occasions—such as Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day—happening all year round. You know what to do next. Bookmark the website.

Most of us have long formed the impression that hotels, however fancy, tend to serve crappy coffee. But it seems like things are beginning to change for the better in Singapore.
We have never come across a more legit specialty coffee shop than this surprise - The Coffee Belt at Park Hotel Alexandra. It is every bit a coffee lover’s dream.
Dining out during Christmas has its cons; for one, everything becomes a lot more expensive, especially a hotel’s buffet spread. But we were completely surprised by The Carvery at Park Hotel Alexandra when they unveil an extremely affordable holiday-themed buffet starting from only S$45++ per adult and S$25++ per child. All the feasting at such a steal? We are in!
The Carvery is a meat-centric buffet in Singapore where you get to enjoy unlimited premium meats that are freshly sliced to order. This Christmas, think gourmet Yuletide treats such as Spiced Orange Roast Duck and Lamb Leg, as well as comforting classics of Yorkshire Pudding and Seafood Bouillabaisse.
We’ve already said it, and we will say it again – The Carvery has the best value-for-money buffet this Christmas.
And when you dine in the evening at The Carvery during this festive period, you can enter a lucky draw hosted by Park Hotel Alexandra. The prize? A brand new Prada Tessuto Saffiano Shopping Tote Bag worth S$1,520 sponsored by Reebonz!
Singapore is made up of many small neighbourhoods, each bearing its own charm and treasures. Being born as and growing up as Singaporeans who reside in the West, the Alexandra neighbourhood is particularly close to our hearts.
We speak for many when we say Alexandra has so much to offer for that quintessential Singaporean experience. Today, Singapore may be a prosperous first world country, a financial hub, a trading port, a tourism destination – but all of these cannot hold a candle to the simplest of joys and bittersweet nostalgia we get from the places, food, and activities that we grew up knowing.
For one, Alexandra brings much comfort to our souls and while we welcome the new that keeps coming in, the neighbourhood remains one that we will always love.
From the olds of Alexandra Village Food Centre and Queensway Shopping Centre to the news of HortPark and Park Hotel Alexandra, here’s our guide to Alexandra – 13 Things To See, Do, Eat And Love about the charming neighbourhood.
As one of the newest hotels added to our cityscape, Park Hotel Alexandra is a hotel quite unlike the others in town. You might think it is strange to build a hotel in a relatively old neighbourhood, but that is precisely what had us falling in love.
Park Hotel Alexandra is no less polished and modern, and we have since had two staycations at the property. You bet we loved it.
Complete with an infinity pool, a premium roast buffet, one of the most gorgeous bars in Singapore and a stylish coffee place all within the premise, Park Hotel Alexandra is a charming one and here is Why You Should Avoid The Crowd in Town And Whisk Away to Park Hotel Alexandra.
