Where to Go for a Bite When You’re at Singapore’s Holland Village

In every neighbourhood or district, there is a food alley or street famous for its restaurants and cafes that even non-residents also know about. For Singapore’s iconic Holland Village, I consider it to be at Chip Bee Gardens’ Jalan Merah Saga. Here’s why.

Many years ago (think back to the 1980s), there were but a handful of restaurants and cafes along this quiet stretch of road, hidden in a private residential estate.

I remember because as a young boy, my mother would bring me here for an after-school lunch time treat of crepes at one of the restaurants/cafes. Sadly, the restaurant/cafe is no longer there.

Today, this stretch of road is home to several gastronomically delightful restaurants. The food choice is international, which reflects the culture of Singapore’s “Holland Village”:http://www.lomography.com/homes/uncle_jay/albums/1790176-olympus-xa-lomo-cn800-holland-village-singapore

Though many of the restaurants are of the higher end, there are some F&B outlets that are lighter on the wallet, which is good news to the students studying at a nearby international school.

But this place is not just about restaurants. There are some shops that cater to the F&B culinary connoisseurs.

And then there is an art gallery, which showcases some of the works by the region’s best artists.

What’s surprising is that there is also a pet shop and cafe.

Oh, and there’s the Sloane Clinic here too.

Parking spots are limited here, so do come early to get a lot or else you will have to park at the nearby multi-storey car park, which is just a 5-minute walk away.
