Cute and quaint, Plain Vanilla Bakery exudes the same rustic charms characteristic of its neighborhood. Famed for their fluffy cupcakes with the right balance of sweetness, do come earlier as they are known to sell out before 6pm.

It takes three days to prepare its legendary curry. That is the claim from Loo’s Hainanese Curry Rice. Tucked into a kopitiam on the corner of Seng Poh road and Eng Watt street, the stall has been around since 1946. The most popular combo? Hainanese breaded pork chop coupled with cabbage, and sambal sotong.

Qi Tian Gong Temple was founded in the 1920s, and is the first in Singapore to be dedicated to the monkey god. Gold dragons and stone lions guard its entrance.
