Every time we go to the area known as Chip Bee Gardens on Jalan Merah Saga we make a new discovery…With a bevy of lovely little restaurants, gourmet food stores, art galleries, bakeries and cool specialty kitchen / baking supply stores, one can spend a whole afternoon puttering around. And we often do!

A destination in and of itself, here are some of our favorites on Jalan Merah Saga.

Original Sin (Pictured Above)
A wonderful vegetarian place that’s perfect for an alfresco lunch or dinner. Paul loves the pumpkin risotto. Also they often have credit card promotions to be sure to ask if there are any current promotional offers.

NEW! The Daily Scoop
The Daily Scoop features over 40 flavors of ice cream – some traditional (strawberry and chocolate and the like), but what really excited us were the creative, gourmet flavor combinations like none we had seen before in Singapore. There was Lychee Martini, Utterly Avocado, Ginger Crumble (with crystallized ginger and gingersnaps), Durian, Wasabi Mango, Green Tea & Red Bean, Hei! Sesame and more.

Cheeseshop

La Fromagerie
From Julien Bompard, a brand new and cute-as-a-button cheese shop in French rustic farmhouse style. Endless arrays of cheeses and cheese-loving accouterments are available, with a small but well-edited selection of wines. And if you are inclined and have time, sit and try the cheese tasting or fondue menus.

dolci

Da Paolo Dolci
A bakery and dessert offshoot of the famous Italian restaurant (dolci = desserts in Italiano) offering lovely little sweet treats – try the tiramisu.

Da Paolo La Terrazza
The eponymous Italian eatery’s other outlet for Italian food. Although frankly we would recommend the Da Paolo Pizza Bar over La Terazza – it’s a little more fun and festive but ultimately your choice depends on what kind of mood you are in.

Da Paolo Pizza Bar
Yet another offering from Da Paolo, but this time with an emphasis on thin crust Italian pizza. As mentioned above it’s a little more fun and festive as it is continuously busy, seemingly at all times of day. Eat on the terrace if it is not too hot. This was voted best pizza by Time Out in 2008.

I’ll be honest, we’ve never eaten here…it’s brand new. The menu offers classic Japanese charcoal BBQ . Please write in and let us know if you have tried it and how it went.

NEW! Mai Thai Restaurant
Updated in Sept…..Just last weekend we noticed a new face on Jalan Merah Saga. A Thai restaurant!  A quick perusal of the menu shows my favorite dish Kra Pow Gai (chicken with chillies and basil). Being former residents of Bangkok we will surely try this and report back to you.

Michelangelo’s
A bit more on the formal side…than say Da Paolo Pizza. Great for a special occasion or date. Upscale Italian at upscale prices. But for more accessible prices, again here often there are credit card promotions, so do ask your server so as not to miss out on a good deal.

Bistro Petit Salut
Dining with some French friends at a French restaurant is always tricky – will it ever come close to authentic? In this case Bistro Petit Salut stood its ground. Paul and I really enjoyed the steak for two. Plus they also often offer good value set menus.

The Butcher

There’s a wide variety of high quality meats at this old fashioned style butcher. Plus they have a wide array of bbq sauces, spices, and everything else you need. Even if you’re not a perfect backyard grill master, they’re on hand and equipped to steer you in the right direction. But if you don’t feel like cooking there are a number of prepared ready-to-eat meals available. We tried the Indian curry meal and it was stunningly good for pre-made food. Check the website for home delivery options if you don’t feel like driving out.

Phoon Huat
From frozen fruit pie fillings to carton-shaped baking pans to cake decorating supplies to spices to countless varieties of flours and sugars….if you need it for baking, it is here. Look no further for baking supplies. Beyond that, the prices are super reasonable…better than the supermarket actually!

The Sloane Clinic
If all the decadent food stuffs on Jalan Merah Saga have had their way with your figure, then you might want to check out Sloan Clinic medical spa. From antiaging solutions to acne treatments to figure slimmers, there is an extensive offering. I personally have never visited Sloan Clinic, but I will say they have been around for 7 years. And 7 years in a business this trendy, with medi-spa’s opening up on every corner every week, longevity probably means something.

Mischa007

All Breeds Pet Store
Actually we discovered this street during a visit to the pet store where we got Mischa the cat. They are super nice here…and really patient (it took us many visits to decide!). So whether you are looking for a puppy or kitten or already have pets and need supplies, we definitely recommend All Breeds Pets. Plus if you join as a VIP, you can get a 10% discount on purchases.
