Singaporeans love to eat – that much is obvious. If you’re a night owl who constantly gets food cravings in the wee hours of the morning, check out these 5 condos that are located a stone’s throw away from some of our island’s best supper spots.
#1: Warner Court
Nearest MRT: Holland Village
Average PSF rent price: $3.0
Best food nearby: Restaurants, bars, and Holland Village Market
Warner Court is located just a few minutes away from the Holland Village stretch of restaurants, bars and pubs. There’s a plethora of good food here, including Park at Holland Village, which is a cafe by day and bistro by night, and Rumours Bar and Grill, which is famous for their 1.2kg Fiorentina steak.
If you fancy something a little more local (and wallet-friendly!), check out Holland Village Market – some of the stalls there operate all the way till 12am.
#2: The Red House
Nearest MRT: Marine Parade
Average PSF rent price: $3.4
Best food nearby: Katong belt
If you frequent the Katong area, you might’ve walked past The Red House a few times (or even dined at the Heavenly Wang outlet housed within it). But here’s what you might not know: this is actually a residential-retail-lifestyle heritage development, and there are units for rent upstairs!
Staying here is any foodie’s dream come true – just pop downstairs, and you’ll be met with an entire belt of cafes, bars and restaurants. If you fancy some Mexican, there’s Lower East Side Tacqueria; if you’re in the mood for Peranakan, head to Baba Chews Bar and Eatery. The famous 328 Katong Laksa and lobster restaurant Pince & Pints are also located on the same stretch.
#3: Kensington Park
Nearest MRT: Lorong Chuan / Kovan / Hougang
Average PSF rent price: $2.1
Best food nearby: Chomp Chomp
If you live in Kensington Park, chances are that you’ll find yourself heading to Chomp Chomp for supper every single day.
There’s a smorgasbord of food to sample here – start your way from the classics, such as sambal stingray, BBQ chicken wings, hokkien noodles, and a tower of sugarcane juice. If you can stomach more, we also recommend the lok lok, carrot cake, and wanton mee. Feast away!
#4: Le Regal
Nearest MRT: Aljunied
Average PSF rent price: $4.0
Best food nearby: Geylang
Note: Le Regal is located close to the Red Light District, but we know some of you foodies won’t be dissuaded by that!
Le Regal is strategically located within Geylang – it’s right smack on a bustling street of restaurants, and if you stay here, it’s pretty much impossible to go hungry.
Literally at your doorstep is Eminent Frog Porridge, and further down the road, there’s a charcoal BBQ restaurant, a Chinese-style eatery specializing in Ma La, and the famous Leong Kee (Klang) Bak Kut Teh. Further still, you’ll find Geylang Famous Beef Kway Teow, and Geylang Lor 9 Fresh Frog Porridge.
#5: City Square Residences
Nearest MRT: Farrer Park
Average PSF rent price: $3.7
Best food nearby: Swee Choon
City Square Residences scores pretty highly when it comes to convenience – both Farrer Park MRT and City Square Mall are located across the road, which means that residents have all the amenities they need at their fingertips. If the food in the mall doesn’t cut it for you, there are plenty of Indian eateries and restaurants around, and you’ve also got Swee Choon, which opens till 6am everyday.
