A piece on my hood in #Singapore #SG50
Today, the rows of shops along Jalan Merah Saga house some of the city’s hottest restaurants and cafes, many of which are packed to the brim with diners during weekends. First the art galleries moved in, with Taksu and Sujin leading the charge. Then hip cafes such as Daily Scoop, the Monocle Café, Sunday Folks, and Baker & Cook followed to slake gallery-goers’ thirst. Perennially packed restaurants like Original Sin, Da Paolo, Bistro Petit Salut, and Michelangelo’s Restaurant also made Chip Bee Gardens the estate’s culinary hub du jour. Stylish kitchenware and baking supplies stores Lemon Zest and Phoon Huat round out the eclectic mix. In short, residents living within the Holland Village area have plenty of options when it comes to dining choices, and it will take visitors more than a day to explore the dozens of stores here.
