This name is a familiar one for the East Coast and Katong residents, the corner ‘hawker-bar’ coffeeshop which has been attracting many diners for its range of drinks, affordable bites and chill-out atmosphere.

By the team behind Carpenter & Cook, The Bakehouse has a savoury menu (compared to the original C&C outlet at Lorong Kilat), with truffle mushroom soup, wood-fired pizzas, gourmet sandwiches along with C&C signature pastries. Opened 7 days a week.
Their tarts and loaves, some of my favourites are the Passionfruit Meringue, Chocolate Sea Salt and Lemon Drizzle ($5 – $6.50), have remained quite consistent. (Read: The Bakehouse by Carpenter & Cook)

The small 20-seater ramen shop caters to a sizable Japanese expat community staying around the area. Three types of ramen soup bases are available – Shoyu ($12.90), Miso ($12.90), and the spicy Karamiso ($13.90). For additional toppings of pork belly, you can order the Chashu Ramen ($16.90/$17.90).

The tonkotsu based shoyu soup could be more robust in flavors though, and we preferred the karamiso based broth which had a more agreeable layered taste.

Tel: +65 6250 3119
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 3pm lunch, 5:30pm – 10pm dinner
Authentic Korean BBQ restaurant The Gogi. The Budae Jungol ($35 for M, $45 for L) Korean style army stew was packed with the usual ingredients of sausages, spam, tofu, mushroom, rice cakes and ramen noodles.
The other dishes such as such as the Dolsot Bibimbap ($15) and Soondubu Jjjigae ($15) soft tofu stew with seafood were above average in terms of freshness of ingredients and presentation. (Read: The Gogi)

Tel: +65 6250 4863

For their second outlet of Atmosphere, the café-bistro has gone for a lush interior, with pseudo-European curtain drapes, maroon-red seats, and chandeliers, kind of reminding me of High Society Café.
Some of the items available – Seafood Aglio Olio ($16.80), Chilli Pasta ($19.80), Carbonara ($15.80), Chicken Meatballs Bolognese ($16.80), Baby Bay Ribs ($21.80), Pan-seared Salmon ($20.80), Cajun Chicken ($17.80), Wagyu Burger ($19.80) and a selection of pizzas ($12.80 – $14.80).
