Olla Coffee – Blk 109 Clementi Street 11

Having operated mainly as a mobile coffee cart, Olla Coffee had since moved into a permanent space at Sunset Way. Occupying a unit at the ground floor of an HDB block at Sunset Way, Olla Coffee is a hole-in-the-wall cafe which primarily serves up specialty coffee. Taking on a rather minimalistic approach in its design,…

Pobo Gelato – West Coast Community Centre

West Coast is not a location that is well associated with the local cafe scene, but that has not stopped cafes such as Pobo Gelato from appearing in the neighbourhood. Opened recently at West Coast Community Centre, Pobo Gelato is a new ice-cream parlour that serves housemade gelato in cones, cups, and waffles. Decked in…

Sesame & Bagels – NEWest

New tenants have been trickling into NEWest; while F&B establishments such as Thrive Kitchen and Nasi Coco had already left the building, Sesame & Bagels is the latest concept to have moved into the still largely unoccupied complex. Taking over the spot situated next to now-defunct Thrive Kitchen/Nasi Coco, Sesame & Bagels is easily seen…

Graze by The Backyard Bakers – NEWest

Tenants are still trickling into NEWest, which remains quite vacant after being opened for several months. Relatively new to NeWest (which is also home to few other F&B tenants such as Birdfolks, Nasi Coco and a new branch of Lazy Lizard), Graze by The Backyard Bakers is opened by the same folks as Bundt by…

Nasi Coco – NeWest (Closed)

(Nasi Coco had since ceased operations.) Taking over the previous spot that was operated by now-defunct Thrive Kitchen is Nasi Coco, the newest F&B concept at NeWest after Birdfolks which we had visited somewhere last year. Continuing the Tendon craze that lasted for quite a while in 2017, Nasi Coco attempts to push things further…

Summer Hill – Blk 106 Clementi Street 12

It seems that Sunset Way is seeing quite a bit of switch-up with the F&B tenants here, especially with the closure of Megumi Japanese Restaurant, De ‘Beer Seafood and The Tiny Roaster and also the opening of Springleaf Prata Place and Summer Hill. Summer Hill takes over the former space occupied by The Tiny Roaster,…

Sun Lok Noodle House – 321 Clementi

Having previously been located at Yuan Ching at Super Bowl Jurong, Sun Lok Noodle House had recently moved to a more accessible location at 321 Clementi. Comparing its new address with where it used to be located, Sun Lok’s new location is certainly more accessible — the restaurant is situated around Clementi Town Centre, though…

G’day Bistro – Blk 352 Clementi Avenue 2

Neighbourhood cafes had been a thing back a few years ago, when many cafes had started to spring up around the heartlands at the void deck of HDB estates. While the number of new neighbourhood cafes had declined over the past two years, it is still rather interesting to see places like these come up…

Birdfolks – NEWest

Birdfolks is one of the newest F&B establishments that have recently moved into NEWest, following the opening of Thrive Kitchen in the same building a couple of months ago. Birdfolks is situated in a space within the building, well-hidden from outside the building as the establishment is located in the middle row of shops of…

Thrive Kitchen – NeWest (Closed)

(Thrive Kitchen had since ceased operations.) NeWest is a new building recently built along the Ayer Rajah Expressway. With the completion of the building, tenants such as Thrive Kitchen and Hakata Japanese Cuisine (formerly at Jurong Superbowl) have moved into the building. A simply decorated space, Thrive Kitchen sits around 30 in a comfortable setting…

Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes – Park West Condominium (Closed)

(Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes had since ceased operations at Park West Condominium, and had been re-branded as Farangse situated at 24 Greenwood Avenue.) Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes replaces Casse-Croûte, which is hidden at the second level of the clubhouse of Park West Condominium. Being situated within a condominium, visitors need to register their…

The Tiny Roaster – Blk 106 Clementi Street 12 (Closed)

(The Tiny Roaster had since ceased operations.) Still remember the zen and serene coffee studio situated at West Coast some time back that focuses on handbrewed coffee named The Tiny Roaster? They have since shifted to Sunset Way, and with the move came a bigger, more spacious studio amongst famed seafood restaurants and steakhouses in…
