Posted by on

Love Keong Saik neighborhood? Beyond its trendy vibe, there's much more to explore. Here's your guide to the best spots to eat, drink, and shop, ensuring you get the full Keong Saik experience:

Local Breakfast at Tong Ah Cafe

Start your day with a delectable old-school local breakfast and strong kopi at Tong Ah. Immerse yourself in the nostalgic ambiance. Did you know this cafe used to be in the Potato Head building? Their name (in Chinese characters) can still be seen on the shophouse corner opposite their current location. If you visit at lunchtime, try their delicious Sze char dishes with coveted wok hei goodness. The fried hor fun is a must-try—it’s worth the calories.

Scarves and Gifts Shopping at Binary Style

Shop the largest collection of Singapore-themed scarves at Binary Style. You'll also find gifting items, apparel, and homewares. Our shop is the perfect place to find unique gifts for yourself and your loved ones. Many say it's ideal for finding a gift for the woman who has everything.

Afternoon Pick-Me-Up at Leckerbaer Cafe

Craving dainty sweet pastries? Head to Leckerbaer Cafe, which originated in Copenhagen. Enjoy pretty and delicious treats baked fresh daily. Our favorite is the Rhubarb and Vanilla Mascarpone Mini Tarts.


Venetian Bites at Bar Cicheti

This casual and cozy spot offers fresh handmade pasta that never disappoints. Their fried sage, a dish rare to find in Singapore, intrigues us. Think of it as sage tempura. This dish alone makes Bar Cicheti worth a visit.

Hidden Bakery at Anatta

Discover the intrigue of a bakery accessed through a hidden door in a park. Anatta, a Japanese-inspired bakery, also sells organic food items. Don’t miss their fluffy curry bun—it’s incredible. Look for the cafe behind a blue door.

Savor Smoky Perfection at Man Man Unagi

If you love unagi, Man Man Unagi is your go-to spot. Delight in savory, smoky eel over hot Japanese rice, crispy outside and soft inside, paired with fresh wasabi. This place exudes a Tokyo basement restaurant feel. Enter through Duxton Plain Park, where an unagi tank awaits you.

Instagram Moment in Front of Cundhi Gong Temple

Capture a moment in front of the unmissable small Cundhi Gong Temple. With its colorful facade and pretty floral tiles, this temple, built in 1928 and dedicated to the 18-armed Bodhisattva Cundhi, provides a beautiful photo backdrop.

Must-Have Potato Head Instagram Moment

No visit to Keong Saik Road is complete without a photo in front of the iconic Potato Head building at the junction of Keong Saik Road and Teck Lim Road.


Happy Hours at Humpback

Enjoy mean cocktails and briny, buttery oysters at Humpback's beautiful terrace during happy hours. This place is fast becoming our favorite spot to unwind after working hours. We love their refreshing Paloma and strong Old Fashioned cocktails. Fun fact: a scene from "Crazy Rich Asians" was shot here.

Jewelry Shopping at Forbidden Hill

Just across the street from Humpback, you’ll find this unique jewelry designer shop. Hidden on the second floor, it offers a beautiful range of silk jewelry and lacquerware inspired by Southeast Asia. We love their customizable silk bangles that come in many pretty colors. Take the lift to the second floor.


Burgundian Feast at Gaston

Indulge in authentic Burgundian dishes at Gaston, a French restaurant that transports you to the famous wine region. Few places in Singapore serve Oeufs en Meurette (poached eggs in red wine sauce), but they do! This dish, introduced to us during a Burgundy wine tour, is a favorite. Gaston also has an impressive wine list.
