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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
