YOUNGS Bar & Restaurant is one of the new restaurants that opened late last year in The Oval @ Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP). Occupying one of the colonial black and white single storey bungalows in SAP, YOUNGS Bar & Restaurant is a cosy restaurant serving Western cuisine. The restaurant’s idyllic setting can make it an attractive destination for a leisurely weekend brunch.
The Oval at Seletar Aerospace Park (SAP) is a new hip food enclave. Wheeler’s Estate is one of the several new food and beverage places operating in the black and white colonial buildings that sit on the grounds just next to the Seletar Airport. Housed in an elegantly restored heritage building, surrounded by lush greenery and serving modern Australian cuisine, Wheeler’s Estate Seletar will appeal to foodies and photographers, especially amateur food photographers.
One of the best things about Singapore’s food scene is the wide range of culturally diverse options available. We can eat Mushroom velouté with crème fraiche and truffle scented oil and Foie gras ravioli in Bistro du Vin in the prime Orchard Road area one day and have Roti Prata with Teh Halia at Thasevi Food in Jalan Kayu the next day. One has dark wood panelling, marble-topped tables and bentwood chairs while the other has bare concrete walls, plastic top tables and plastic chairs – but both restaurants serve food we enjoy.

(Updated on 28 Nov 2014) The Seletar Mall finally opens for business! After watching the construction of the mall taking shape over the last 24 months or so, residents of North East Singapore now have a mall of their own. According to the Business Times report on 3 November, the mall, which is jointly developed by Singapore Press Holdings Ltd and United Engineers Ltd, obtained its temporary occupation permit on 28 October. More than 99% of the space in the mall has been spoken for. The anchor tenants are Fairprice Finest, Shaw Theatres, Foodfare foodcourt and department store BHG. For those of you who are not so familiar with the area, Seletar Mall is located on Sengkang West Avenue at the junction with Fernvale Road. The Fernvale LRT station is just right at its door step. If this is still Greek to you, then I am sure you will know where it is if I tell you it is a couple of minutes drive towards the East from the famous Jalan Kayu roti prata stall.
We are as usual, interested only in finding out what to eat at the mall. Today we take you on a walkabout to check out the F&B outlets. Other than some of the outlets which are still doing their renovations, most of the F&B outlets are in operation. It was extremely crowded in this rather compact mall. For those who arrive by public transport, they have it easy as there is direct access to the bus stop, taxi stand and LRT station. Those who drive should be prepared to wait especially during the first few months as many curious residents come to take a look. It is also a long drive down to the carpark which is in basements 3 to 5. We suggest you take the travellators and escalators. The lifts are slow.
