Tucked away inside Vanguard Campus in Kallang Avenue is a contender for coziest outdoor cafe. The inviting Banchong Cafe, which serves coffee & toast and simple local fare, is a place that you may feel like lingering.
Versatile local comedian Mark Lee 李国煌 is still acting, hosting and entertaining but he also has interests in varied businesses – from movie production and artiste management to hair salon and F&B. His restaurant in Kallang Wave Mall, 13 Stages, started as an eatery featuring 7 different flavours of chicken rice and 13 flavours of coffee. It now offers a varied menu, with seafood rice, hor fun, mala noodles, fried rice and even bubble tea among the items available. 13 Stages has another outlet in Tanjong Pagar Plaza (which is currently temporarily closed). Dabao and delivery services are now available.
Whitley Road Big Prawn Noodle at Old Airport Road Hawker Centre and char siew rice from Ah Yee Hong Kong Roasted were the yummy local delights that we ended up eating when we were in the Mountbatten MRT Station vicinity recently.
Camp Kilo Charcoal Club is an unusual restaurant along the Kallang River where roasted meat is the star attraction. It is located on the ground floor of a non-descript building with no close neighbours. Most of its seating is outdoors on picnic style tables and benches. It is open only on Friday evening and weekends. There is no obvious Camp Kilo Charcoal Club signboard or directions, yet there was a steady flow of diners when we were there on a Sunday evening.
It was a sunny late Saturday afternoon. We decided to go to Brewerkz Singapore Indoor Stadium as it seemed like a nice place to chill out over a few beers with an early dinner.

This could have been due to the fact that we were there during off-peak hours. There are options for indoor or outdoor dining. Being typically Singaporean, we chose to sit indoors with ample air-conditioning.Read More »Brewerkz Singapore Indoor Stadium – beer, pub grub in a nice location
