Traditional dishes of Singapore will leave you amazed, one of these is kueh and amongst the best places to try them is Ah Shen Ah Mah. While their board says Teochew Kueh, and they make terrific ones too, their popular item is the Soon Kueh. People love it as they use bamboo shoots for the stuffing, something you don’t find in most outlets, making it special and oh so tasty! They have quite a few kueh variants, and they’re all delicious, so feel free to have more than just the soon kueh.

Usually when dessert lovers come together, they end up being friends but there are some who take it beyond and start restaurants like Geometry and share their passion with the world. The gelatos at this place will blow your mind. Don’t settle with just a scoop, choose a base like the Handcrafted Tart, Belgian Waffle or Brute Brownie. Sip on some soothing Clipper Tea or Cold Brew of the day after your dessert and just in case your sweet tooth wants more, sip on a hot cup of Chocolate Soup.

Alexandra Food Village Centre

One of the most happening food hubs in the neighbourhood is the Alexandra Food Village Centre where you’ll find many food stalls and of course long queues outside them. It is a no-brainer to pick the stalls attracting a huge crowd as they would have the best food, and this is exactly what you should do when you’re just getting accustomed to the food in Singapore. However, we do like to recommend the noodles at Dover Road Kai Kee Wonton Noodle, the chicken from Xiang Jiang Soya Sauce Chicken and a Claypot Laksa at Depot Road Zhen Shan Mei
