The Best Of: Katong Food
Welcome to The Best Of series. Here, we dive into a variety of districts and areas around Singapore; exploring interesting places to visit, quirky people to say hello to and even scrumptious food to sample!
Late night bite or breakfast delight. The streets of Katong have it all! Adorned by warm rustic cafes and loved for timeless eateries all along the slip-streets of East Coast road, you won’t be out of food choices when it comes to mealtime.
How about one of the best ‘Prata’s’ in Singapore; crispy fried bread dunked in delicious spicy curry? Visit Mr and Mrs Mohgan’s Super Crispy Roti Prata along Crane road. The cosy stall is tucked in an old coffee shop. Often patronized by the locals, make sure you come early or you’ll be left with nothing but a frown and a rumbling tummy.
If you’re in Katong, you can’t give the famous Katong Laksa a miss. A spicy coconut cream-dominated gravy drowns dollops of cockles and ﬁsh cake, this dish is served over thick rice noodles and is a local favourite. 328 Katong Laksa will make sure its a favourite of yours soon too.
The time in-between is often best ﬁlled with dessert. Known for its Peranakan roots, you can ﬁnd traditional Malay and Nyonya kuihs and cakes over at Glory Catering Pte Ltd on East Coast Road. If artisanal ice-cream is what you crave, Birds of Paradise serves one-of-a-kind gelato nestled in a basil-spiced cone.
