About Urban Bites

Ideally located opposite the Al-Abrar mosque along Chinatown’s historic Telok Ayer Street, Urban Bites Mediterranean Cuisine serves what its name suggests: healthy nuggets of Mediterranean-influenced food to Singapore’s hungry. While there are a number of sweet and savoury dishes that take their cues from western cuisines, the focus here is definitely on the Middle Eastern shores of the Med, with great Lebanese-style sandwiches a popular option among regulars to this friendly cafe-restaurant.

More about Urban Bites, Singapore

Please be noted that your table will be held for 5 minutes.

A simple bowl of lentil soup is a rustic way to begin a meal at Singapore’s Urban Bites Mediterranean Cuisine. It’s a staple for many people living around the Mediterranean sea, and its simplicity belies the depth and subtlety of this robust dish. Urban Bites’ Lebanese kebabs are famous among Chinatown and Telok Ayer Street locals, so why not go the whole hog (no pork in sight, we assure you!) and order up the mixed grill platter – lamb and chicken kebabs with rice, pita, hummus, and falafel.

Yes, indeed, Urban Bites Mediterranean Cuisine’s Telok Ayer Street premises, set inside a pretty shophouse in the heart of Singapore’s historic Chinatown, attracts a steady stream of locals and nearby office workers, nostalgic Lebanese and curious tourists. They’re here for the friendly service and, above all, the great Mediterranean-style food. The food, certainly, but sometimes just a novel way to cool down on those hot days in the city: in these cases, we recommend a refreshing and eminently Middle Eastern quaff of Ayran sweet yoghurt drink. By then you’ll be eyeing up the meze platters and booking a table if you hadn’t already.

Great food, very smiley and attentive staff and reasonable value. I will be back! Was too full to try the dessert because i was stuffed from haloumi salad, falafel and moussaka. Healthy but filling.

Great service and food. I loved the chicken and lamb kebabs, which were not too salty and rather tender. The atmosphere was great for a group of 10.

One of my many visits to this restaurant. Great food and service as usual. My guests also enjoyed the experience at this restaurant. Would be great if they can get a bigger space.

Pretty convenient place (sandwiched between Tanjong Pagar and Telok Ayer stations). Nice, cozy place. Warm service and amazing food. Can get a tad too loud when full.

Good food and ambiance! Variety of food is there, and quality was good. Price was a little steep especially for the baklava which was $3 a piece
