The 64-storey Tanjong Pagar Centre is the tallest building in Singapore. It comprises office space at Guoco Tower, residential apartments at Wallich Residence, the Sofitel Singapore City Centre business hotel, Tanjong Pagar Park as well as six levels of F&B and retail outlets. We are of course most interested in the food & beverages offerings in Tanjong Pagar Centre (TPC). There is a good mix of restaurants, cafes and bars catering to diverse tastes and budgets in TPC. Chances of finding a nice affordable place to eat at Tanjong Pagar Centre is pretty good.
Unique Dining Space
Tanjong Pagar Centre is a new CBD food hub. It should prove popular with the office lunch crowd. In the evenings and on weekends, it may be an attractive dining destination for those looking for an alternative to the usual shopping malls’ offering. A highlight of TPC is the City Room, an urban public park sheltered from the weather by a solar panel glass canopy which is 15m high. It is a space for public art, special events and outdoor performances as well as a great location for sheltered al fresco dining.
TPC also has a pleasant common dining space for those who bought food and beverages from take-away kiosks or from eateries with limited seating – a very good idea which we hope to see replicated in other buildings.
What to eat at Tanjong Pagar Centre
Those looking for affordable dining options at TPC will be spoilt for choice. There is a wide range of restaurants and cafes – from the familiar names like Han’s, Kraftwich and Starbucks to new or unique eateries like Japan Rail Cafe, Hattendo and Pura Brasa.
