Keeping up with Kovan

Previously a Teochew area, this sleepy residential area that used to border the forested areas of Sengkang and Punggol was known as Lak Gor Jio (‘six-mile stone’), as it was six miles away from the Fullerton area, where many Chinese immigrants first landed in Singapore. In the 60s and 70s, Kovan was rife with secret societies, which has since given way to supper spots galore and a fledgling hipster scene.

Good Old Kallang

Kallang River is the longest in Singapore at over 10km, stretching from Lower Peirce Reservoir to Kallang Basin. It's named after the old Malay reference to the orang biduanda kallang, who were a seafaring people who lived around the Kallang and Singapore Rivers. Get a good workout visiting the myriad of food haunts, whether in old shophouses or shiny new malls, around the area.

Uniquely Upper Thomson

Upper Thomson is synonymous with good food. From having some of the best hawkers on our Little Red Dot, the stretch is now peppered with hipster cafés and mom and pop restaurants galore. The bad: It’s so popular that URA has recently banned new F&B outlets from opening to ease traffic congestions. The good: The current variety is interesting enough to keep us going back.

Glamorous Kampong

A beautiful contrast of old and new, our buzzing Malay heritage area of Kampong Glam and Arab Street pays homage to tradition and history, while making way for many modern boutiques, trendy eateries and bars. On one end you will find old school perfumeries, historic architecture and long-standing textile stores; and on the other, contemporary restaurant and bars frequented by those in the know.

Merry 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?

Tin hill

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.
