Offering a full-on menu of both Asian and Western fare, Colbar is one of the few gems in Singapore that we can safely say, has truly stood the test of time. Opened in 1953, the establishment formerly served as a canteen for the British army. It, therefore, gave rise to its name, Colbar, otherwise referred to as ‘Colonial Bar’.
Granted that it’s a little out of the way, especially for those who do not drive, it is still a charming spot that’s worth the trip. It is a retreat from civilisation and it is also a great place to catch a glimpse of the old days.
This rustic hideout is furnished with retro interiors like Formica tabletops and old photographs, which bring an air of nostalgia that sets you back in time. Whether you’re pining for a beer, some food or a place to chill, Colbar is one that’ll guarantee you a relaxed and tranquil experience.
Chick Can Rotisserie is a new establishment which prides itself in whipping up Canadian-style Roasted Chicken and Poutine—it is one place to head to for comfort, rustic Western food.
Located along Amoy Street—just a 5-minute walk from Telok Ayer station—Chick Can is a cosy and wallet-friendly option for those who work in the Central Business District.
We were pleasantly surprised that all the items on the menu are below S$20, with the exception of the Half Chicken Meal (S$22+) which can easily feed three to four people. As if that is not enticing enough, you don’t have to pay for service charge at Chick Can Rotisserie too!

Street food is easily one of the best things a country can offer. Unlike other countries where you eat by the road side, Singapore’s version of street food is what we call hawker food, and they are found in food/hawker centres – which are usually located in the heartlands.
For what is lacking in the electrifying atmosphere of eating by the street, the hawker centres in singapore make up for it by serving clean and tasty food, in a comfortable environment.
Tiong Bahru Market is one of the most popular hawker centres in Singapore. I always go there when I am craving for local food. Here are some of the things that I order when I am eating there.
