Restaurants

If you haven’t heard, the newest Don Don Donki just opened at 100AM mall in Tanjong Pagar!

Image: Little Day Out

If you find yourself planning a trip down soon, then let me be a saint and recommend you some of the good eats you can find in the area.

I mean, let’s face it, we all get hungry after some shopping.

1. A Noodle Story

This stall is known for being the first to introduce ‘Singapore-style ramen’, inspired by European techniques and Asian flavours.

It was even listed in Singapore’s Michelin Bib Gourmand in both 2016 and 2017.

That’s when you know something is good.

I would not spoil the surprise by telling you what ingredients you can find in a bowl, but let me assure you that they only serve the freshest and best!

Do be early if you’re planning to get one, because they only sell 200 bowls every day!

Address: 7 Maxwell Road #01-39 Amoy Street Food Centre

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri: 11.15am-2.30pm, 5.30pm-7.30pm
Sat: 10.30am-1.30pm, Closed on Sundays

2. Ginza Tendon Itsuki

Image: Singapore Expat Life

There are only two Tendon items in this restaurant – Special Tendon, and Vegetable Tendon.

My experience tells me that the lesser the menu items, the better the food.

Their tempura is no way like the half-hearted ones we find outside, where the dough is literally thicker than the food itself.

Here, the chefs are very peculiar about the different duration needed to fry each ingredient, which explains how they manage to serve quality tempura.

Address: 101 Tanjong Pagar Road

Opening Hours: 11.30am-2.30pm, 5.30pm-10pm (Daily)

3.Chicken Up

Yeah, I know, it’s a chain, but hey, if it’s good, it still deserves a spot here regardless of whether it’s a chain or not, right? (though I’ll not include McDonald’s, so no worries)

Here at Chicken Up, the chicken is fried twice to ensure that the flavours are all trapped inside.

This is also why Korean fried chicken tastes so different from normal fried chicken.

These three people tried to apply for a job in Goody Feed but was rejected immediately. Here’s why:

Besides the popular fried chicken, there are also marinated ones to choose from. While you’re here, you should also try out their sides and specially-curated soju.

4. 2D1N Soju Bang

2D1N Soju Bang is a Korean a la carte restaurant that serves authentic Korean food.

If you’re looking for a good deal, then head upstairs to Ssikekk, the famous KBBQ chain.

As compared to other well-known KBBQ chains in Singapore, Ssikekk is known for their wide variety of marinated meat and also friendly prices.

FYI, these two are under the same owner, so the quality is already a given.

The restaurant is run by an Italian and all pastas and sauces are made in-house.


Advertisements

 


There is no service charge and GST here, which allows patrons to enjoy affordable Italian food.

The owner’s a saint, I tell you.

Other than the overwhelming amount of pastas to choose from, you can also add on a side of Fried Mozzarella (yeah that’s a cheese; we know that from KFC, no?), a must-try in the cafe.

Be ready to get that Boomerang rolling!

Address: 43 Craig Road

Opening Hours: 11am-11.30pm (Daily)

6. Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei

Image: TheLanceScape

The highlight of the restaurant is their Hamburg, which is basically hamburger patties, if you haven’t guessed.

The prime US beef patties are cooked on teppanyaki grills before being served on hotplates.

Once again, there are only two choices available – the Triple Cheese Prime Beef Hamburg, and the Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg.

Both come in a set that includes free-flow rice, miso soup, eggs (cooked to your preference), as well as 20 side dishes to choose from.

It’s basically a buffet luh!

Address: 72 Peck Seah Street

Opening Hours: 11.30am-2.30pm, 5.30pm-10pm (Daily)

7.Gyu Nami

This is really the extreme; there is only one item on the menu, and that’s the Wagyu Roast Beef Donburi.

The main character in the bowl would be the high-quality wagyu beef. The meat is lightly roasted and you can easily taste the tenderness as you bite into it.

If you’re not that a big fan of raw eggs, the stall use sous-vide eggs instead.

In case the taste is a big strong, there is also miso soup that comes with every bowl of meat.

Address: 7 Maxwell Road #02-126 Amoy Street Food Centre

Those who work in the Central Business District (CBD) will understand the pain of having to source for affordable eats during lunch.

Just like how the stall is owned by three friends, there are only three items on their menu – Classic Nasi Lemak Fried Chicken, Butter Chicken and Vegetarian Nasi Lemak – which all cost $7.50 each.

90,000 Review of the best coffee shops in Singapore

Not so long ago, we wrote a review article about the best coffee houses in New York, but today we want to tell you about the best, in our opinion, coffee houses in Singapore. The city itself is quite colorful and in many respects differs from others, with its charm, culture and even smell. However, the coffee here is just as great as in New York!

DRURY LANE

The Tanjong Pagar area in Singapore is a kind of corner of the city.As the “third wave of coffee” hit this small nation too, coffee shops started popping up all over Singapore, which is really great because it means that the number of places where I can get my dose of caffeine has increased significantly. Drury Lane (no, not a street in London), for example, is one of those cute little places, and even though it can be crowded and noisy on weekends, a good seat at a table and a cup of fantastically delicious coffee will always provide you here. pleasant lunch.

ORIOLE COFFEE ROASTERS

Oriole Coffee Roasters is another great place in the Tanjong Pagar area. It is a little different from regular coffee shops, and combines a mixture of styles and echoes of Singaporean culture. The distinctive style is felt not only in the nostalgic façade, but also in the menu, which offers traditional snacks, modern versions of traditional drinks and, most importantly, excellent coffee.

TOLIDO’S ESPRESSO NOOK

Tolido’s Espresso Nook coffee shop is located far outside the Tanjong Pagar area – actually, already in the Kampong Glam area.This is my favorite cafe in the area, because even with the whole “flock” of hipsters who are constantly hanging around these cafes, it is quite quiet on weekends, so you can always have a quiet and pleasant lunch here. The coffee that is served here is not outstanding, but good, tasty food at quite reasonable prices really sets this place apart from others.

KAMPONG GLAM District

Taking a break from food for a while, it’s worth noting that Singapore’s Kampong Glam area is a great spot for street photography, where you can see biker cafes, halal bakeries, and vintage Volkswagens.It is a small area with a provincial feel that has changed a lot over the past couple of years. Fortunately, the influence of Malay culture remains quite strong here, despite new trends in coffee culture.

OTG.COFFEE

But OTG.Coffee is something special. Located in the residential area of ​​Serangun district, this small establishment has a good name. OTG stands for “Oh Thank God!” (Oh, thank God!) – and indeed, thank God that such a wonderful cafe exists.There is more to be found here than other, more hipster establishments can offer you – the café caters mainly for takeaway food and drinks, so there is very little seating. However, it remains at the top of my list of favorite cafes because it is always good to have a leisurely lunch and a serious conversation here, and it also always serves good food and even better drinks at incredibly affordable prices. In addition, the staff here is always very friendly, and willingly accepts constructive criticism – usually the staff of other cafes suffers from a lack of the latter quality, as soon as the popularity of the institution begins to grow.

OTG.Coffee isn’t for everyone, but it definitely suits me.

Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (Malay: Stesen Keretapi Tanjong Pagar ; Chinese: 丹戎巴葛 火车 总站; Tamil: தஞ்சோங் பகார் ரயில் நிலையம்), also called Singapore Railway Station: Keretapi Singapura ; Chinese: 新加坡 火车站; Tamil: சிங்கப்பூர் ரயில் நிலையம்) or railway station Keppel Road , a former railway station located at 30 Keppel Road in Singapore.The station was the southern endpoint of the network operated by Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM), the main rail operator in Malaysia, until June 30, 2011, when the station ceased operations with the relocation of KTM station to the Woodlands Train Checkpoint. The land on which the KTM station and railways stood was originally owned by KTM and over which Malaysia had partial sovereignty. This agreement lasted until June 30, 2011, when rail links with Tanjong Pagar were cut and land returned to Singapore.

The main building of the railway station was declared a national monument on April 9, 2011, which is in line with one of the goals of the new clauses of the agreement between Malaysia and Singapore.

This will be the future site of the Cantonment Metro Station, one of the Circle MRT Stage 6 stations.

History

Top view of Tanjong Pagar train station

Prior to the construction of the Johor-Singapore Bridge across the Johor Strait, the Singapore railway was limited to the island.Construction of the dam began in 1919, and it was opened to freight trains on September 17, 1923, and to passenger trains on October 1, 1923. Previously, passengers and goods, especially for serving the transport of the tin and rubber industry in Malaya, were relocated to Woodland before the ferry to Johor Bahru and connecting trains on the peninsula. Tanjong Pagar railway station was completed on May 3, 1932 and officially inaugurated by Sir Cecil Clementi. It was about 79 years old before it ceased operations on July 1, 2011 and was reserved for the Singapore Railway Museum.

Singapore State Railway

In 1859, Captain William Cloughton built the first dry dock. With the advent of steamboats and the growth of shipping, the Tanjong Pagar Dock Company was founded in 1864 to build marinas in the area. The area grew to become known as “New Harbor” shortly before acting Governor Sir Alexander Swettenham renamed it Keppel Harbor in 1900.

Subsequently, due to numerous political demands, plans began in 1899 to build a railroad through Singapore, primarily to serve the New Harbor, and in 1903, the Singapore-Kranji railroad was completed.Between 1906 and 1907, the line was extended south from the terminus. Station on the Tank Road to Tanjong Pagar and berths. It was eventually abandoned due to noise complaints from nearby residents.

Train services

KTM operated six daily KTM Intercity trains between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. It also operated several other trains between Singapore and other parts of Peninsula Malaysia, such as Kelantan State in the northeast.The company also provided transfers between Johor Bahru and Singapore for commuter train passengers. Until June 30, 2011, stops in Singapore were at Woodlands (for immigration control by the Singapore Immigration Service and disembarkation of passengers traveling from Malaysia) and Tanjong Pagar (embarkation and disembarkation). Since July 1, 2011, the only stop in Singapore is the Woodlands.

Tanjong Pagar and Outram Park Subway Stations are about 1 km from Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.

Intangible heritage

Upon arrival at the TPRS main hall, the first thing many encounter is the Khabib railway bookstore and money changer. Part of the train station landscape since 1936, this is definitely one of the establishments that many ordinary passengers would patronize before embarking on their journey. Opened in 1936, this store was operated by owner Mohd Sini before taking over in 1958. He worked the longest at the station.

The Station Canteen, known for its delicious and affordable food, has been inaugurated by the Hasan brothers since 1984.One of the hawkers, Mohammed Ali Latif, sold Nasi Briani in the cafeteria for 8 years before it closed. He started his business from scratch, selling 20-30 servings a day for about 300 a day. On his last day at the station, his food was sold out within 2 hours, and over 700 regular customers came to support him.

TPRS was also home to Mr. Dennis Lim, whose father has run the station hotel for over 60 years since 1932. The hotel, with 34 rooms, was located on the upper floors of the station, and its service was equated to the Raffles Hotel.its peak, to the point that many dignitaries like Malaysian royalties frequent the hotel. Having lived and worked here for most of his life, Lim also mentioned that the hotel exuded a strong colonial atmosphere with huge rooms with high ceilings and restaurant waiters dressed in white with silver buttons.

The hotel’s popularity began to decline in the 1970s due to the physical deterioration of the station building and neglect of maintenance by the Malay Railway authorities.A roof leak caused significant damage to the ceiling due to moisture, and plumbing problems became the predominant problem. All this led to a drop in the attractiveness of the hotel, and the business went down.

Termination of work

The notice of the termination of work at the Tanjong Pagar railway station was posted on board the train from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore (Tanjong Pagar) on June 26, 2011, the last week of the station.

Pursuant to an agreement between the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore on May 24, 2010, rail operations at the station ceased on July 1, 2011.The preserved building can be integrated with future developments on the site or converted into a museum. KTM South Terminal has been relocated to Woodlands Train Checkpoint.

The closure of the line between Tanjong Pagar and the Woodlands checkpoint was considered for about 20 years with the intention clearly articulated in the clauses of the 1990 Malaysia-Singapore agreement, although exact details could not be agreed upon until an agreement was reached.was signed between the two countries in 2010. While some supported the closure, others objected and lamented that it represented a major loss of Singapore’s legacy and a key public transportation facility. After the closure, Singapore had 180 km of railway lines.

Proposed redevelopment

In 2015, the Urban Development Authority (URA) proposed converting the station into a multipurpose public space as part of the renovation of the railway corridor stretching from Kranji to Tanjong Pagar.A request for a design plan has been announced. The winning bid for Tanjong Pagar Train Station includes a public park in front of the station called Station Green and an integrated MRT subway station entrance. Facilities such as an auditorium and an art gallery will be added, and the Railroad Corridor will become a linear park nearly ten times longer than New York’s High Line. The reconstruction is designed for 20 years.

Architecture

Four marble statues by Angelo Vannetti

Inner hall of Tanjong Pagar station

Panels with paintings depicting the economic activities of Malaysia and Singapore in the station hall

The building is made in a richly decorated Art Deco style.On its outer side there are four white marble reliefs, allegories of agriculture, industry, trade and transport. These are the work of Angiolo Vannetti [it], a sculptor from Florence, Italy.

The hall has a vaulted roof.

Inside the main public hall, the walls bear panels with scenes depicting economic activities that were historically significant in Malaya: rice planting, tapping, shipping, carriage transport activities, copra growing and tin mining.

These panels and the original floor slabs were manufactured locally using rubber to reduce noise levels.

Two long platforms were able to accommodate the longest mail trains, covered with umbrella reinforced concrete roofs.

Disputes between Singapore and Malaysia

The status of the railway station was contested by the governments of Malaysia and Singapore.

When Singapore left Malaysia in 1965, there were no border controls between the two countries.When the two countries established border controls, Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) officers from Malaysia and Singapore were stationed at Tanjong Pagar to clear rail passengers. Road travelers are clear immigration on the Malaysian side of the sidewalk and woodland, Singapore when entering Singapore. In this case, the CIQs of both countries are separated.

Items of agreement between Malaysia and Singapore 1990

In 1990, Malaysia and Singapore signed an agreement on the Tanjong Pagar railway station.Malaysia agreed to relocate the station to Bukit Timah, thereby freeing up land for development. In turn, Singapore agreed to transfer the land for the Tanjong Pagar railway to a private limited company for joint development, with 60% of the shares going to Malaysia and 40% to Singapore. However, the parties interpreted the agreement differently. Singapore insisted that the agreement go into effect immediately, but Malaysia argued that the agreement would only enter into force once a decision was made to move the station.

Immigration control problems

Since 1992, KTM has worked with Singapore to flatten its railroad tracks in the Woodlands, where Singapore has built a new immigration checkpoint to replace the old checkpoint, with train passenger immigration facilities in place of Tanjong Pagar.In 1993, Malaysia replied that it would move its CIQ operations to the new Woodlands checkpoint.

However, in June 1997, Malaysia stated that the clauses of the 1990 agreement between Malaysia and Singapore would enter into force only after it decided to relocate Tanjong Pagar station. Malaysia also informed Singapore that it changed its mind and decided not to host its CIQ with Singapore at the Woodlands Train Checkpoint (WTCP), but to stay in Tanjong Pagar.In April 1998, Singapore informed Malaysia that it would move its CIQ operations to Woodlands, while Malaysia would have to move its CIQ out of Singapore from August 1, 1998. Instead, Malaysia asked for space on the WTCP on a temporary basis. an agreement so that Malaysian immigration officers can work from there and thereby overcome the problem of the sequence of stamps when leaving and entering the immigration authorities of Singapore and Malaysia.

According to a press release from the Singapore Ministry of the Interior on July 24, 1998:

  • Singapore will allow Malaysian customs officials to work at Tanjong Pagar railway station.Singapore officials will be present at the Tanjong Pagar railway station to hand over to Malaysian customs officials in the interim.
  • Singapore agreed to Malaysia’s request to allow the Malaysian Immigration Service to place several desks for its immigration officers on the passenger platform at the WTCP to clear passengers after Singapore allowed them to leave Singapore. The Singapore Immigration Service must arrange for departing passengers to leave Singapore before the Malaysian Immigration Service allows them to enter Malaysia.Otherwise, the sequence of immigration control will be illogical and cause problems in crime investigation and prosecution. These interim measures will address the problems that will arise if the Malaysian Immigration Service remains at the Tanjong Pagar railway station.

However, Malaysia refused to issue immigration controls on the platform: it insisted that the Malaysian Immigration Service was inside the building at the WTCP. If this was not possible, it stated that the Malaysian Immigration Service would remain in Tanjong Pagar.Singapore argued that Malaysia’s decision to locate its immigration control post in Singapore was inconsistent with Malaysia’s own legislation. According to the laws of Malaysia, it is the Johor Bahru railway station, and not Tanjong Pagar, that is declared an immigration control post for persons traveling by train from Singapore to Malaysia. Singapore also indicated that this is confirmed by a stamp on the passports of passengers boarding the train to Tanjong Pagar, which shows:


IMMIGRATION TO MALAYSIA JOHOR BAHRA
SOCIAL / BUSINESS VISIT PASS
Reg.11. Imm. Regs 63
[Date] “
Authorized to enter and stay in West Malaysia and Sabah for one month from the date above”

On August 1, 1998, the Singapore Immigration Service ceased operations in Tanjong Pagar and transferred to the CPSU, while the Malaysian Immigration Service continued its activities in Tanjong Pagar. Malaysia has decided not to confirm the passports of departing rail passengers from Singapore and has pledged to provide legal arguments to show that Malaysia’s CIQ has a legal right to remain in Tanjong Pagar.

The immigration control procedure, which arose as a result of the deadlock before July 1, 2011, was as follows:

  • Regarding Singapore, the Malaysian Immigration Services conducted an immigration check on a train at the Johor Bahru railway station. After passing through immigration, the train crossed the dam and stopped at the WTCP station, where all passengers proceeded to Singapore customs and immigration. Thus, travelers entering Singapore by rail followed the correct immigration clearance procedure, i.e. exit granted by the Malaysian Immigration Office in Johor and entry granted by Singapore Immigration Office in the forested areas.After passing through Immigration at the Woodlands, passengers could either leave the checkpoint or continue the journey to Tanjong Pagar.
  • In the direction of Malaysia, passengers boarded the train at Tanjong Pagar and went through Malaysian customs and immigration before boarding. The train traveled about 30 minutes to WTCP and stopped there for 30 minutes so that passengers could go through Singapore immigration. In this case, passengers were allowed to enter Malaysia prior to Singapore immigration, which is contrary to international practice.To get around this problem, the Malaysian immigration officials did not stamp passports.

In early 2007, news of a Singaporean woman imprisoned for not being stamped on her passport upon entering Malaysia drew attention to unusual clearance procedures. The Foreign Office reminded Singaporeans that their passports would not be stamped when leaving Malaysia by train, rather than stamping a disembarkation card that had not been retained until leaving Malaysia.Logon records were also entered into the computer system. Even then, this arrangement continued to pose problems for some passengers.

Moving agreed

On May 24, 2010, a meeting between Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his Singaporean counterpart Lee Hsien Loong in Singapore resolved the issue of resettlement. In a joint statement after the meeting, they announced that KTM will relocate from Tanjong Pagar railway station and establish a station at the Woodlands Train Checkpoint (WTCP), making it the southern terminus of the Malaysian rail network from July 1, 2011.Malaysia will also relocate its customs, immigration and quarantine facilities from Tanjong Pagar to WCP, which will create an integrated border point between Malaysia and Singapore.

Singapore agreed to provide a bus service between WTCP and the nearest MRT station, and that the National Heritage Board maintains the station building for any development in the area. The Bukit Timah railway station building on Blackmore Drive may also be preserved.

Both sides agreed to form a consortium called MS Pte Ltd, 60% owned by Malaysian Khazanah Nasional Berhad and 40% by Singapore’s Temasek Holdings Ltd.The company will be allocated three land plots in Tanjong Pagar, Kranji and Woodlands. and three additional plots of land in Bukit Timah (Lot 76-2 Mk 16, Lot 249 Mk 4 and Lot 32-10 Mk 16) in exchange for the return of land from the KTM railway to Singapore, which was exchanged for Marina One and dUO land plots, located in the Marina Bay and Bugis districts of Singapore, with the aim of stimulating financial growth in the Central Business District, and the nearest metro stations to MS Pte Ltd land are Marina Bay and Bugis.

Both sides also agreed to build a high-speed transit link between Johor Bahru and Singapore to improve connectivity through the Causeway. Once the connection is complete, the KTM terminus can be moved to Johor.

The last train from Tanjong Pagar was led by Sultan Ibrahim Ismail from Johor, whose grandfather, Ismail from Johor, opened the road between Singapore and Malaya in 1923. The Sultan had to learn how to drive a train before he could set out.this task while undergoing training at KTM. For safety reasons, he was accompanied by two drivers.

    Variable Obaglikara – Unique Singapore

    By 2027, the Singapore government plans to transform the area around Tanjong Pagar into an area three times the size of Marina Bay, with a 30 km hiking trail connecting Labrador Park and Gardens by the Bay.

    Ms. Phan Sue Leng, URA’s Assistant Chief Architect, announced that the project will be called the Greater Southern Waterfront area and the Tanjong Pagara Port area will be part of the plan. “The project is very ambitious: we are going to attract many more residents to this territory, for this, residential complexes will be built in Tanjong Pagar, which will also have a multifunctional character,” she added.

    The project will also include green corridors, forming an ecological network to promote biodiversity and activities throughout the area.It will complement existing and new buildings in the area such as Eon Shenton, PS100 and Tanjong Pagar Center, which is 290 meters or 64 stories high, also named the tallest building in Singapore.

    Ms. Valerie Wong, Commercial Manager at GuocoLand Singapore, said: “Although Tanjong Pagar is a fairly developed area, it lacks to become a hub, a meeting place for office workers and residents.” At the same time, Ms. Fan noted that the area already has a “mixed character.”“You can find many restaurant buildings and other service centers on the streets, and this makes street life more vibrant. This area is very different from others in that even after the end of the working day you will still see quite a lot of street life here ”.

    Mr. Dietmar Lake, leader of the High-Density Mixed-Use Cities project at Future Cities Laboratory, said that the intention to create a mixed city block is not new. “But Tanjong Pagar will prove that this idea really works not only at the level of preservation of historical heritage, but also in relation to modern buildings and territories,” he said.Lake added that architecture that adapts to different users helps cities prepare for future changes as they become more flexible to meet future needs. “It’s all about difference and diversity. The whole city of Singapore is a huge urban project, and it is important that within its framework we create islands with different names, and they are able to complement each other. ”

    Excellent hotel, everything is at a high level.Carlton – participate. Late checkout was provided without any problems. The Club Lounge has a dress code. The breakfasts are delicious and varied. The metro is nearby. The view from the window is on the port, quite industrial. If you are resting, then you can look for something else.

    I didn’t and didn’t regret it! For some reason I associate Carlton with something old-fashioned and conservative, but the hotel turned out to be permanent and comfortable.The view from the window … yes, the city! That’s all I need for it to be in urban areas and I can’t seem to lose it in an urban setting and have successfully presented it. My detective novel to local publishers 🙂 Besides that, a very romantic script happened to me at the hotel. The courtyard (on the third floor!) Has an outdoor pool that Lufthansa pilots and flight attendants have a habit of making. After a free flight, they relax in the Carlton. As a rule, serious and focused, comes off on vacation.One such German met me. Girls, it was hard for me to resist! You should have seen him crawl out of the pool, pumped up and tattooed … no, not the Lufthansa logo, an eagle was tattooed on his mighty shoulder. Fortunately, some of his crew were nearby, and the “eagle” peacefully folded its wings, looking at me only from afar 🙂

Free high-speed Wi-Fi. This room has everything you need to get it partial. There is no balcony and the windows cannot be opened. Breakfast is good. Had lunch and dinner outside, very expensive food price. A gym is available, a small gym and a couple of dumbbell benches. The location is good, near the metro. The staff is friendly, they helped, it is clear that it was not a burden. Good English.
