Where to dine in Macpherson

First called Jalan Klapa (coconut road), Macpherson Road was then christened after Lieutenant Colenel Ronald Macpherson, the first colonial secretary of the Straits Settlements in 1867 and builder of the present St. Andrew’s Cathedral. While others may associate the area with industrial and residential pockets, we at BiTES have the privilege of calling it our office ‘hood. Who better to tell you all about the hidden food finds?

Where to dine in Bukit Timah

Bukit Timah (literally: tin hill) isn’t just an expensive residential area. Indie makan destinations and a canvassing shade of green permeate this long straight road, now bolstered with convenient new stations on the Downtown Line. We crisscrossed three of those stations wandering amidst vast bungalows and prestigious schools to uncover hidden pockets of culinary delight.

Where to eat in Ang Mo Kio

The seventh housing estate developed by HDB in the 1970s received its name from a colloquial slang. ‘Ang mo kio’ translates literally to ‘red-haired man’s bridge’, referring to Caucasians as ang mohs because of their red hair. The bridge, long demolished, is thought to refer to John Turnbull's bridge over Kallang River near what is now the junction of Upper Thomson Road and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1. BiTES goes in search of hawker finds, unexpected contemporary cafes, and colourful HDB housing blocks—where you can find almost everything you need.

Where to eat in Duxton

The Duxton area was a former 13-hectare nutmeg plantation with 1,800 trees introduced to Singapore in 1819 by Sir Stamford Raffles. The nutmeg court at The Pinnacle @ Duxton marks this historic presence, now surrounded by towering blocks and hipster hangouts. Pockets of quiet parks and converted shophouses make this a destination full of character in the midst of the CBD.

Where to eat in Botanic Gardens

Singapore Botanic Gardens might be a freshly inscribed UNESCO World Heritage Site (4 July 2015), but the 82ha verdant attraction has over 150 years of history. As an avid naturalist, Sir Stamford Raffles set up the first botanical garden at Fort Canning. After its 1829 closure, a new garden was developed by the Agri-Horticultural Society at the current site in 1859. It’s not only all things green though. We spent a leafy afternoon exploring, and uncovered plenty of hidden F&B options.

Where to eat in Sentosa

Sentosa has seen numerous transformations. Once a fishing village, Pulau Panjang ("long island") or Pulau Belakang Mati (literally "island behind death" in Malay) became a strategic British fortress during World War II. In 1972, the Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) was formed to spearhead the development of the newly-named (“peace and tranquillity”) 500-hectare land mass into a tourist attraction. Recent updates include a new Cable Car Sky Network (15 July), the opening of the Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa (6 Nov) and KidZania Singapore (end 2015).
