It’s no secret that the Katong area is full of good eats. But for those in the know, it’s also home to some of Singapore’s most popular Peranakan restaurants and cafes. That’s because like neighbouring Joo Chiat, Katong was once favoured by Peranakans and Eurasians as it developed into a residential suburb in the early 20th century. Once filled with coconut plantations and used as a weekend retreat for wealthy city dwellers, the area is now shaped by its unique pre-war identity of well-preserved Peranakan shophouses and, of course, great food.
Here’s our list of top Peranakan eats in the neighbourhood.
