Great spots to take your guests

First, take a slow wan­der through this former army bar­racks to soak up a lit­tle of its rich his­tory. Then, when you’ve worked up an ap­petite, hit up one of the many lo­cal or in­ter­na­tional restau­rants housed amid the lush green­ery, and tuck in.

Taste of tra­di­tion

For a hearty, tra­di­tional In­dian meal, head to Samy’s Curry. Here you’ll find a va­ri­ety of South In­dian fare such as their sig­na­ture chicken masala and Mysore mut­ton, with dishes served up on a banana leaf. Lo­cated in one of the old bar­rack build­ings, Samy’s has an old- school, canteen- like feel about it. The re­laxed at­mos­phere and solid food is clearly a win­ning com­bi­na­tion – this fam­ily-run restau­rant has been serv­ing hordes of hun­gry ex­pats and lo­cals since the 1970s.

Crab-tas­tic

Got a seafood lover in tow? Don’t miss the black pep­per crab at Long Beach Seafood. Cre­ated in 1982, this fra­grant pep­per sauce dish is a Sin­ga­pore clas­sic. An award-win­ning resto, Long Beach has been around since 1946, and with good rea­son. You’ll find all kinds of de­li­cious ocean-dwelling crea­tures on the menu – the steamed ra­zor clams are another firm favourite.

Al­ter­na­tively, head to Dempsey’s other pop­u­lar seafood joint, Jumbo Seafood to tuck into another iconic Sin­ga­pore dish: chilli crab. This sweet and savoury crab dish is served up with golden man­tou, a crispy tra­di­tional Chi­nese bun. Other pop­u­lar dishes in­clude the golden salted egg prawn, mee goreng and crispy fried baby squid.

For the foodie

Step things up a notch at award-win­ning restau­rant Morsels where chef-owner Pet­rina Loh serves up cre­ative fu­sion cui­sine in a rus­tic set­ting. Im­press your guests and en­joy the best the kitchen has to of­fer with shar­ing or omakase menus. Paired with spe­cially cu­rated sake, craft beers or house-in­fused cock­tails, it’s sure to wow your foodie pals.

Fun night out

For an en­ter­tain­ing night out, head to Tawan­dang Mi­cro­brew­ery, a Ger­man-thai mi­cro­brew­ery orig­i­nat­ing from Bangkok. Ex­pect mod­ern Thai food paired with smooth Ger­man beer and reg­u­lar live mu­sic and dance per­for­mances. Your taste­buds will be well looked after by the Thai chefs and ex­pe­ri­enced Ger­man brew­mas­ter, as you choose from Thai and Ger­man clas­sics like tom yum kung and deep-fried pork knuck­les, washed down with draft dunkel, weisen and lager beers.
