French crepes from Brittany at Entre-Nous Creperie

Entre-Nous Creperie is a small restaurant specialising in making traditional French crepes using organic buckwheat flour from Brittany. It is located next to the Toy Museum on Seah Street, just behind the Raffles Hotel.  In line with the Brittany theme, there are pictures of the sea and a fishing net on the walls.

Entre-Nous Creperie has a long and narrow dining space indoors and a few alfresco tables outdoors. The kitchen is located behind the blue wall. The restaurant is small and basic but it exudes some warmth as the owner’s touch is obvious in the various small knick knacks and decorative items placed around the restaurant.

Levant Singapore is a restaurant in Watten Estate serving Middle Eastern cuisine. Along the stretch of restaurants along Greenwood Avenue serving mostly Western fare (and a few Japanese restaurants), Levant stands out as the one that is quite different.

Bincho Singapore restaurant – yakitori meets coffee shop in Tiong Bahru

We walked past a coffee shop named Hua Bee Restaurant a few times before we found the Bincho Singapore yakitori restaurant. We were using Google maps and we kept getting led to this place. But there was no sign of a Japanese restaurant –  the only eateries in the vicinity were Hua Bee and the Flock restaurant next door. It was only when we conceded defeat and telephoned Bincho that we learnt that it was located inside the Hua Bee kopitiam. In fact, Bincho expands from the inner cavern of this place to take over the whole coffee shop at night.

Oriole Coffee + Bar at Capitol Piazza (Outlet Closed)

Oriole Coffee + Bar at Capitol Piazza

The Oriole Coffee + Bar at Capitol Piazza is like the quiet demure sibling of the brash extrovert, Oriole at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites in Somerset. The Oriole at Pan Pacific is located at a pedestrian corridor with high human traffic. It has an outdoor dining area, which can be a nice spot to people-watch. In contrast, Oriole Coffee + Bar at Capitol Piazza is tucked away in a quiet corner of level 2 of the mall. Its neighbors are upscale boutiques. Besides fellow diners at Oriole Capitol Piazza, the only people you can watch are the bored boutique assistants. However, if you like a quiet comfortable space for a good cup of coffee, Oriole Coffee + Bar at Capitol Piazza is almost the perfect spot. It is also a good place for meals. Oriole has just introduced a new set lunch deal.

Dong Po Colonial Cafe – (Closed)

Dong Po Colonial Cafe is a popular place to eat traditional Singapore coffee shop food such as local coffee, kaya toast and soft-boiled eggs. Other attractions at this rejuvenated  shophouse along Kandahar Street in Kampong Glam is the retro decor and the old fashioned cakes. It is the place to go to re-live the good old days of the 60s and 70s.
