Doctor Who’s TARDIS has nothing on The Countryside Café. Crammed into its beautifully preserved premises along Dunlop Street in Singapore’s heritage Little India district are menus (and presumably a kitchen and large fridge-freezer) holding over 6 breakfasts, 20 kinds of light meal, 40 main courses, and 60 beers from around the world. On the latter, Christmas is a good time to visit The Countryside Café, with big specials on buckets of those incredibly diverse beers. Where do they keep it all?
The Countryside Café’s motto encourages you to unwind, indulge, and relax.
Stepping into The Countryside Café’s quaint premises along Dunlop Street, you
immediately sense that The Countryside Café is a labour of love. This little eatery
and bar has preserved the charm of Singapore’s historic Little India district, and
adorned its walls with mementoes of the international patrons that have passed
through. It’s a popular place to hangout and enjoy a snack or meal, and sample one
of the beers, which are best served cold and in a bucket for five, or something else
from the crazily long menu.
Just to explore the tip of The Countryside Café’s iceberg of a menu would be to note that in terms of food it covers burgers and sandwiches, soups and salads, pasta and pizza – those are just the light meals – plus Western, Singaporean, Malay, and Thai cuisines, and Indian. This alone should ratify The Countryside Café’s other motto of unity in diversity, but it’s surely the atmosphere of bonhomie that pervades the café’s rustic Dunlop Street premises that keeps locals and foreigners alike coming back for more.

I was hesitating on having dinner there with me fiancé but well you got to try so that you'll get the answer . hmm the food ? food is acceptably delicious ! affordable too ! good for a hangout place with friends . will definitely return :)
