PLQ Parkside is a mini-park and a play space for both children and adults in Paya Lebar Quarter. The open space is flanked by an interesting range of restaurants and cafes, including heritage brand Killiney and celebrity chef restaurant Rempapa.
Paya Lebar Quarter or PLQ is massive development by Landlease in the Paya Lebar regional business hub. PLQ Mall has become very popular. The many F&B outlets there attract crowds from early in the morning to late at night.
If PLQ Mall is like someone with a gregarious personality, PLQ Parkside will be the sister that is rather quiet, appearing to be slightly aloof but actually rather easygoing and relaxed.
In the space between PLQ3 and Park Residences, there is a children’s playground as well strolling paths, grass lawns and park benches. The place has a resort like feel. F&B outlets lined the green space on both sides.
PLQ Parkside Food Options
PLQ Parkside Food options are diverse. Diners can enjoy a traditional breakfast of kaya taost with soft boiled eggs at Killiney, savour artisan coffee at Jimmy Monkey, have healthy protein bowls at Poke Theory or indulgent lunch at Rempapa. In the evenings there are many places for drinks. For dinners, Italian at Salvor or fusion cuisine at Chug Chug and Zing are among the choices available.
Jimmy Monkey is the cool and hip cafe where you can enjoy coffee brewed by the high-end Slayer espresso machine. It serves brunch and dinner and is also a good place for drinks in the evening. Read more.
