Discover Katong, Singapore.

Once home to a bustling coconut plantation, the streets of Katong are still filled with the crisp salt air of the sea, with the soft crashing of waves and swaying rustle of coconut trees providing the soundtrack to the city. Street art adds distinct character to the neighbourhood, while coffee shops and restaurants make Katong a foodie paradise of treasured local flavors. One of Katong’s most vibrant cultures, Peranakan, is also responsible for some of the tastiest dishes, blending the best of Malay and Chinese cuisine with a pinch of Portuguese and Indian influences. The sweet and spicy flavors achieve a balance of comfort and tradition, with a splash of Katong’s modern culture thrown in.
