Located in the far north of Singapore, right next to the Malaysian border, Sembawang has restaurants that reflect its close links to its neighbour - as well as plenty of exciting eateries from other food cultures. That diversity may have something to do with the area's shipbuilding past, which brought workers and cuisines from all around the world. Whatever the reasons may be, with buses and MRT trains serving the district, anyone in Singapore can explore Sembawang's restaurants with Quandoo whenever they like.
If you are stationed at the Naval Base, you don't need to stick to dining spots near the wharf or in the base itself. Why not branch out and start exploring everything that Sembawang's restaurants have to offer? The area is most well known for its southeast Asian and Chinese chefs, but there are international bistros too - so you can find a little taste of home or experiment with something a little bit more exotic. Whether you are posted with the US Navy or you are in the area to work on the commercial docks, you'll always find somewhere great to dine among Quandoo's selection of Sembawang restaurants.
There's also a great blend of upscale, formal places and more down to earth restaurants in Sembawang. If you need to treat your workmates to a Thai curry or a table covered in freshly prepared sashimi and nigiri, there are places for you. But when you want to experience something a little bit more luxurious, Sembawang's restaurants deliver too. There are resort-style bistros on Orchid Club Road (which are great places for Iftar banquets and other celebrations), as well as popular gourmet restaurants, allowing Sembawang residents to enjoy everything from lobster bisque to grass-fed New Zealand T-bone steak.
If you are working or living in more central areas, why not get away from Singapore's hectic centre and sample the more relaxed pace of life in the northern districts? You can reach Sembawang restaurants with ease via the MRT or local buses. Before you sit down to peruse the local menus, you could wander down to the jetty, stroll through the area's parklands or spend some time on the sandy beach. But however you spend your time, make sure your day involves a gourmet meal to round it off.
