Nondescript canteens and drab zhi char stores may be what we usually associate with food options in industrial estates. However, trendy cafes and restaurants are cropping up in Singapore’s industrial quarters. The diverse CT Hub food options is evidence that industrial buildings in Singapore can have rather interesting and even quirky F&B offering.
Located at the corner of Kallang Bahru Avenue and Kallang Avenue, CT Hub @ Kallang Avenue comprises CT Hub 1 & CT Hub 2. CT Hub 1 is a strata-titled industrial project with a retail element. The newer CT HUB 2 is also a mixed development comprising a light industrial building and an office building with shops on the 1st storey.
CT Hub 1 has a retail section which looks like a modern neighborhood mall. The Toyogo Warehouse Outlet is located there. You can find all sorts of plasticware as well as household and stationery items in Toyogo; all at bargain prices. There are also interesting shops selling fishing equipment and party accessories and even a specialty muesli store.
CT Hub food options are quite varied. There are a few local start-ups and there seem to be some emphasis on healthy eating. The beverage options available also span a wide spectrum, from local coffee and healthy fruit juices to alcoholic drinks from all over the world. Here is a quick look at the restaurants, cafes and other F&B outlets in CT Hub.

We also noticed a kiosk called The Papa Shop offering drinks and snack items like hot dogs. What really caught our attention was the “Drive-Thru Liquor Kiosk” banner. You don’t have to leave your car to pick up wine, craft beers or sake. For some, that may be reason enough to visit CT Hub in the evenings.
