With its early twentieth century architecture, lively nightlife and seething energy, Geylang is a magnet for tourists and bar hoppers, and it's also one of the Lion City's best places to eat. With a range of Chinese, Malay, Indonesian and European restaurants in Geylang to pick from, it's a fine place to choose to round off a day of sightseeing or to host a business dinner. So, if you are touring the historic areas in Singapore and need somewhere to make a pitstop, booking a table at Geylang restaurants with Quandoo makes perfect sense.
This section of Singapore has close links to China, and has done ever since the 1840s, when Chinese workers and traders started to arrive in large numbers. Thousands of these arrivals worked as rickshaw pullers and labourers in the construction of modern Singapore, but their descendants are now proud proprietors of a community full of superb Chinese restaurants. Geylang is the place to go if you feel the need for Sichuan style pork, smoked duck, ginger prawns or Chengdu style noodles. If you love southern Chinese cuisine, it's a wonderful place to choose.
However, it's not all about southern Chinese food in Geylang. Hakka restaurants are also common in the area, showcasing the cooking of Taiwan's dominant ethnic group. If you haven't tried it before, Hakka cuisine is very different to most Chinese traditions, with dishes like salt-baked chicken and duck that has been filled with rice. It also includes plenty of tofu based dishes (though not all are suitable for vegetarians, so be sure to check!). If you haven't explored it already, Geylang restaurants provide the perfect opportunity to experience what Hakka cooking has to offer.
If you are planning a shopping expedition to City Plaza, or you're watching an event at the Singapore Sports Hub, booking restaurants in Geylang will let you focus on enjoying your day without worrying about where to eat. Pick somewhere along Geylang Road near the malls, and make it something to look forward to when the shopping is done. There are plenty of exceptional Asian restaurants in Geylang - the only challenge is picking one, so let Quandoo help!
