Katong is one of Singapore’s most exciting food hubs – home to hip cafes, popular Peranakan restaurants and famous laksa stalls. Just the short stretch of East Coast Road between Haig Road and Still Road will have more eating places than many decent sized shopping malls. The number and variety of the restaurants you can find there is amazing but the real thrill is finding places with cheap and good food in Katong. These are places that may never be listed in Michelin or Zagat but have long been very popular among the locals. For the about price of a latte from one of the international coffee chains, you can get in Katong a good traditional breakfast, delectable Teochew snacks, sinful lunch, healthy dinner or late night supper. We list in this food trail post The Ordinary Patrons’ favourite Cheap and Good Food in Katong.

A new menu offers more interesting and enticing items. We like Sinpopo’s new dress and new locally-inspired menu items.
