FLIPPER’S Singapore is opening its second outlet at Bugis Junction and it slated to open on 25 October 2021. The new outlet will have several new dishes which will be exclusive to the Bugis outlet.
Unlike the original shop at Jalan Membina (opposite of Tiong Bahru Plaza) which is an old-school bakery, the flagship outlet at 247 Victoria Street has a modern decor which looks like a Hong Kong Cha Chaan Teng.
Haji Lane is not just. Besides the usual slew of cafes, eateries and apparel stores, these colourful streets are also home to a number of aesthetically-pleasing lifestyle stores that have a plethora of interesting knick-knacks that can keep you occupied for hours.
From rustic, handmade accessories to beautiful Danish boutique crafts, here are 7 lifestyle stores located in Haji Lane that will have hipsters occupied for hours.
The Bugis enclave has come a long way since its earlier, sleazier days. Now, things have smartened up for the place with the many slews of hipster cafes, shopping centres and even classy new hotel establishments such as Andaz Singapore.
While the area is evolving into a shopping paradise for both locals and tourists alike, one thing still remains unchanged—the food scene here is immense. Sussing out some of the best from the old to the new, from glitzy restaurants, cosy cafes and humble hole-in-the-walls, here is our list of 50 cafes and restaurants in Bugis.
If you love authentic Chinese street food fresh out of the markets in Shanghai or even Szechuan, then boy do we have a treat for you.
Newly opened Mr Sheng Jian located along Liang Seah Street dishes out a myriad of Shanghainese-inspired food with a modern touch. Their sheng jian baos are just the perfect little tummy fillers and come in a variety of innovative flavours such as cheese and kimchi. Their noodle dishes, on the other hand, although not the best we’ve come across, do give you a sense of warmth from the spicy broth.
Cantonese cuisine, more specifically dim sum, often brings to mind the usual suspects such as comforting porridge, bao, and dumplings of sorts, but over at Song Garden, there is much more than meets the eye than the conventional mix of dim sum treats.
Located on the second level of Mercure Singapore Bugis, this contemporary Cantonese restaurant astounds with its array of elaborate and mouth-watering dishes. Your taste buds are in for a tantalising treat of innovative creations such as Pan-seared ‘Otak’ Seafood Dumpling on Skewer, Baked Abalone Pastry and Deep-Fried Charcoal Chili Crab Meat Ball.
Helmed by Executive Chef Wong Shea Nung and Executive Dim Sum Chef Leung Chi Man—both of whom have decades of experience in Cantonese cooking in Hong Kong—what diners can look forward to is an impressive array of over 30 classic dim sum staples as well as some modern interpretations that are all carefully curated by the chef duo themselves.
From now until May 31 2018 (except for Mother’s Day on 13 May), our readers can quote ‘ladyironchef’ upon making your reservation to enjoy 15% off all dim sum (with min spend of S$60++).
Here’s what you can expect from Song Garden’s stellar line-up of dim sum delights.
Situated along Haji Lane, Moosh Softserve is the latest addition to the hipster street. Primarily serving soft serve (for takeaways only), this Muslim-owned soft serve shop currently has six flavours including classic flavours such as Strawberry and Blueberry.
Besides the classics, Moosh Softserve also offers unique dessert-inspired flavours such as Apple Crumble, S’mores, and the popular Ondeh Ondeh.
If you are looking for some refreshing sweet treats to cool off in the sweltering heat, Moosh Softserve is where you should head for. READ ON
Singaporeans cannot get enough of Thai wanton noodles, a unique style of wanton noodles comprising springy egg noodles, tender char siew, and crispy wanton tossed in pork lard. But besides the ever popular Soi 19 Thai Wanton Mee, where else can you get a tantalising bowl of Thai wanton noodles in Singapore?
Situated along bustling Tan Quee Lan Street, KinMoo is a Thai eatery that opened early this year. Despite being relatively new to the food scene in the Bugis district, KinMoo has been gaining a steady reputation for their mouthwatering Thai food that is not overly expensive.
Just a short walk from exit D of Bugis MRT station, KinMoo is where you will find us slurping up noodles and spicy tom yum goong when our Thai cuisine cravings kick in. READ ON
