It’s about time Filipino diners experienced a restaurant that features a rich and extensive menu of dishes from Singapore.  Restaurants that serve the cuisines of Thailand, Korea, China, and Vietnam have long been popular in Metro Manila. Yet rarely has there been one that showcases the best from Singapore.

Well, the Tiong Bahru Restaurant is presently fixing that oversight. Its menu consists of the finest and most delicious dishes from the Lion City. The restaurant is named after a community in Singapore where several old and well-preserved buildings still stand.  It imparts a romantic and old-world ambiance that also happens to be a fashionable spot.  Its most famous landmark is the Tiong Bahru Market which houses more than 50 hawker stalls. Foodies who visit the market have been flocking to a stall that‘s simply called the Tiong Bahru Hainanese Boneless Chicken.  The delicious chicken it serves has won acclaim from diners and restaurant reviewers and it went on to win the Michelin Bib Gourmand Award for six consecutive years, from 2017 to 2023.

Founded by Singaporean chefs Ko Kim Hock and Cheong Weng Wah, this restaurant offers the authentic hawker food that’s been so popular at the Tiong Bahru Market.
