What comes to your mind when you hear “Tiong Bahru”? Chic cafés, charming boutiques and art studios lining the streets? Art murals that make the perfect Instagram backdrop? With tons of indie shops and its unique architecture, it’s no wonder Tiong Bahru is always on the top of Singapore’s travel guides.

We’ve put together a list of our favourite food places, shops and historic landmarks to help you get the best that Tiong Bahru has to offer on your next visit.
1. Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice
There’s no shortage of Hainanese curry rice in Singapore, but a good one is hard to find. That’s why we love Loo’s Hainanese – the thick and sweet curry, prepared for days, is a gastronomic experience. One bite of the marinated pork chop and fresh seafood dishes, and you’ll understand why people wait in long lines for lunch here. This stall has been around since 1946, so you know your food is in the hands of experts.
