Price per person
65 USD


There is an old saying in Singapore that “Tanglin is gold and Katong is silver”. While this old adage refers to the pertinent question of where to live in Singapore, it also suggests of the rich cultural influences of Joo Chiat / Katong neighbourhood. This neighbourhood is Singapore’s largest architecture conservation district associated with the Malay, Peranakan Straits Chinese and Eurasian communities. The Malays are the natives of this region of Southeast Asia while the Peranakan Straits Chinese are descendants of early Chinese migrants, many of whom have mixed parentage of Chinese and Malay. In addition, the Eurasian community is the legacy of the Portuguese, Dutch and English migrants who arrived centuries ago. This rich cultural diversity is the reason why Joo Chiat / Katong is regarded as the best district to sample the Best of Singapore foods!

Join me to sample over 30 dishes of traditional and celebratory foods and learn about the history, culture and lifestyles of Singaporeans.
