Timbre Plus = hawker food + international cuisine + live music + beer + attitude

Timbre Plus Singapore Ayer Rajah - 8

Please pardon the awkward title of this post. There are so many things happening in the Timbre Plus ( or Timbre+) gastropark in One North, Ayer Rajah that it was the only way we could list all of them in the space for the title with minimum overrun. It is located in the middle of the JTC LaunchPad @ one-north, a zone created for start-ups and incubators in the sciences, media, and engineering industries. Perhaps the startup culture provided some inspiration for the innovation that makes it one of the more unusual food places we have seen in Singapore. Continue reading →

Marine Cove East Coast Park re-opens. The good old McDonald’s @ East Coast Park returns to the new Marine Cove with a fresh concept store.

New Five Food Way in Tiong Bahru Plaza

NiceDay Taiwanese Desserts

Five Food Way Tiong Bahru Plaza

A Tiong Bahru food guide can become obsolete almost as soon it is published. The once tired looking Tiong Bahru Plaza is undergoing a transformation and adding new F&B options. In recent months, there are new eateries opening there every week or so; even a Tiong Bahru food guide updated on a monthly basis may not be able to keep up with the evolving Tiong Bahru food scene.

As part of its asset enhancement plan, Tiong Bahru Plaza now has a new food wing with the witty name of Five Food Way. All the eateries in the Level 2 Five Food Way in Tiong Bahru Plaza are now opened. The food street offers a diverse range of casual dining choices. Local Bak Kuk Teh, Taiwanese dessert, Korean Bimbibap and Vietnamese Pho as well Japanese, Peranakan, Thai, Western and Chinese food are available at Five Food Way. Continue reading →
