Singapore’s best-kept restaurants: the coolest hidden eateries for your mini adventures
Singapore’s best-kept restaurants: the coolest hidden eateries for your mini adventures
23 Feb 2024

Sometimes it’s the journey, not the destination. Sometimes good food is worth the trouble. Sometimes the best restos are, as the food blogs say: tucked away in a hidden corner. In the spirit of rediscovering this city (again, many times over), here’s our list of not-so-secret eateries to Gojek to – all of which are well worth the journey, we promise.

Poison Ivy Bistro

Where: 100 Neo Tiew Road

This eatery in a 10-acre wide farm in Kranji is everything you’d need for a breather away from Singapore’s urban landscape. The menu is literally as farm-to-table as it gets, with ingredients sourced locally from its very own Bollywood Veggies and neighboring farms. Best part? The prices for their wonderful dishes are extremely wallet friendly.

The Coastal Settlement

Where: 200 Netheravon Road

Not exactly a secret, but one that’s still a great spot for exploring! This resto/café/bar sits where Changi Military Base used to sit back when Singapore was still under British rule, so expect a space that’s fully covered in vintage paraphernalia and quirky knick-knacks. Definitely one for the maximalist at heart.

Where: 9A Whitchurch Road

In our humble opinion, Colbar’s food is okay. Its range of craft beers is better, but what’s great about the place is its interior. What was once a canteen for the British army has been left untouched, so it’s like stepping into a movie set – except it’s all authentic. Dress in your 50s best, and don’t forget to bring a film camera with you!

Bincho at Hua Bee

Where: 78 Moh Guan Terrace

Hua Bee serves all the good old stuff like mee pok and toasts in the day, but turns into an Osaka-inspired yakitori bar accessible only by a backdoor at night. The adventure is in finding the space, but the reward’s well worth it: expect tender, flavorful meats grilled over a charcoal fire.

Woody Family Cafe

Where: 12F Andrews Avenue

The décor of Woody Family Cafe is wonderfully eclectic. It’s a mismatch of fairy lights, chinese lanterns, guns, and musical posters, all of which has nothing to do with its menu offerings. What you can get instead are delicious Peranakan dishes – many of which are adapted from the owner’s mother’s recipes.
