Food Scoops: Guide To The Best Hawker Food, Restaurants & Cafes You Must Try In Joo Chiat

La Bottega Enoteca
The nondescript entrance looks like an abandoned shophouse but once the gate opens, it is a different culinary world inside La Bottega Enoteca. The man behind La Bottega is chef owner Antonio Miscellaneo, who is behind the crazily popular private dining Casa Nostra previously. One caveat is that every diner has to go for a Fixed Menu (S$139++ per person), which has 5 courses. In addition, there is also an ala carte menu on top of the Fixed Menu should you wish to order more. The Dolomitic Pan-Fried Cheese and pizza is amazing, [Read more here…]

Petit Pain 
Occupying the space of a small shophouse, this is probably the most famous croissant shop in Singapore. The queue is incessantly long and starts before the bakery opens each day, where the classic croissant is one of the best I have tried in Singapore. No dine-in, only for takeaways. [Read more here…]

Tigerlily Patisserie 
It started out as an online patisserie, before Executive Pastry Chef Maxine Ngooi opened this new cafe few months ago. The space of Tigerlily Patisserie is decked in dark green hues and neutral tones, with a brunch menu though the desserts and pastries are the highlights instead. [Read more here…]

Drunken Farmer Joo Chiat
Taking over Common Man Joo Chiat daily come dusk, the second outlet of Drunken Farmer Joo Chiat opened this month with a focus on sourdough-focused bistro and natural wine bar concept. There will be a rotation of 14 labels available by-the-glass and you can choose from over 80 labels for bottle selections. New dishes to expect at the Joo Chiat outlet include the likes of a Sharing Spread Platter of pita bread served alongside a trio of avocado cream, pumpkin hummus and seeds praline for dips; along with new variants of Chef Paul Albert’s sourdough pizzas lined with pork Chorizo coins or Four Cheeses.

Da Dong Prawn Noodles 
As one of the most popular prawn mee stalls in Singapore, Da Dong is located in a small coffeeshop and is currently run by the second generation, and opens as early as 7.30am. The prawn noodles start from S$8 for regular portion for either the Prawn Noodles or Pork Rib Prawn Noodles, moving on to the most expensive on the menu which is the Big Prawn Noodles (S$13 or S$15). [Read more here…]

East Treasure Speciality Prawn Noodle 
Located close to Da Dong Prawn Noodles, East Treasure is a concept by Astons, the famous western food dining chain, though you certainly won’t find Fish & Chips on the menu here. The dry prawn noodle version comes with pork belly slices, beansprouts and kang kong where the ingredients are pretty generous for the price. The soup is luscious, though there is a $0.80 charge for refill per the menu. [Read more here…]

Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata
One of the go to prata places for East-siders, Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata relocated to a coffeeshop right beside Dunman Food Centre few years back and you can expect to wait up till an hour on weekends. The tip is to head down on weekday mornings where possible, where the crispy kosong prata is our favourite. [Read more here…]

Rong Ji Chicken Rice & Porridge 
Managed by an elderly couple, the stall has been around for decades and you can expect Chicken Rice from S$3, while there is also Chicken Porridge (S$3) or Pork Porridge (S$3). Topped with an egg, the texture of the porridge is not too watery and is really flavourful. Topped with an egg, the texture of the porridge is not too watery and is really flavourful. [Read more here…]

Common Man Coffee Roasters 
The popular coffee brand opened in Joo Chiat recently this year in a corner shophouse setting. You can expect an extensive all-day breakfast and lunch menu (salads, burgers, sandwiches and mains), with highlights like the duo of Sourdough Pancakes exclusive to CMCR JC. [Read more here…

Sevens Café 
Opened just few weeks ago is Sevens Cafe, a modern Australian concept cafe which offers an extensive menu, single origin coffee and a selection of cakes on display prepared by their in-house pastry chefs. The space is cosy and polished looking, and it is by real estate development company Sevens Group.

Wunderfolks 
This is a takeaway tart and pastry shop located in Joo Chiat which specialises in their homemade tarts. There is a good variety of flavours like the Fruitilicious Fruit Tart, Valrhona Dark Chocolate Tart, Lychee Tart, Maple Pecan Tart, Lemony Meringue Tart and Hey Sesame Tart. 

Address: 201 Joo Chiat Road, #01-03, Singapore 427472 

British Hainan 
A blast to the past at British Hainan, which offers a retro chic dining vibe with 2 themed rooms, one focusing on the colonial English and the other with a Communist China theme. It focuses on Singapore heritage Hainanese cuisine, where you will find traditional Hainanese food such as mixed Curry Rice and Hainanese Ngoh Hiang. And you should not miss the main highlights here such as the Oxtail Stew, Beef Stewed and the British Hainanese Pork Chop. [Read more here…]

Long Phung Vietnamese Restaurant 
This is one of the most popular Vietnamese restaurants in Singapore. It has been opened for over a decade, but still continues to draw a huge crowd. The setting of Long Phung is very casual, characterised by its yellow plastic chairs and full-blown menu on the wall. There’s not much of an ambience to speak of, but that’s also the charm of the place. [Read more here…]
