Could there possibly be a more appropriate place to eat than one of our Telok Blangah restaurants? The district's name means 'cooking pot bay' in Malay and a 'blanga' is the traditional clay cooking pot used in southern India. You can explore the flavours of Malaysia, China and India in this multicultural area via inspired menus featuring everything from seafood to vegetarian dishes. Why not stop for lunch before shopping at VivoCity, the largest shopping mall in Singapore, or book a table with Quandoo for dinner after a visit to nearby Sentosa Island?
This central area is one of the oldest parts of Singapore and the ancient settlement of Temasek was established here in the 13th century. You'll be pleased to learn that cookery styles in the district have evolved somewhat since then and many Telok Blangah restaurants are considered some of the most stylish in the city. This is partly thanks to the district's proximity to lots of great attractions. It's located on the eastern edge of Mount Faber Park, one of the oldest green spaces in the country. You'll love the amazing views over the CBD and Harbour and you can work up an appetite walking its scenic trails before recharging your batteries at friendly restaurants in Telok Blangah.
Fusion cuisine is an almost essential by-product of the island's cultural diversity. You can expect to find Singaporean interpretations of classic Chinese, Malay and Indian dishes on menus in Telok Blangah restaurants. Malay cooking has undoubtedly had the biggest influence and when you taste delicious dishes like rojak you'll understand why. This simple salad of fruits and vegetables is made fabulous by the addition of black shrimp sauce and peanuts and it's traditionally served with Chinese crullers, soya bean puffs and cured squid.
Of course, it's hard to beat the old favourites. Whether that means Hainanese chicken rice or international standbys like steak, pizza or burgers, there's no better place to enjoy then than at restaurants in Telok Blangah.
