Uncover the Secrets of Tiong Bahru Singapore with Alvin See | Let's Uncover EP 5
In this episode, Alvin See, a private chef, will bring us on a journey through the vibrant neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru, a place steeped in history, culture, and packed with unique sights and sounds.
Tiong Bahru, one of the oldest housing estates in Singapore, holds a special place in the country’s heart. This area has witnessed the city-state’s transformation from a colonial outpost to a global metropolis. The district’s pre-war art deco flats, built in the 1930s, are a testament to Singapore’s rich architectural history.
As you wander through Tiong Bahru’s charming streets, you’ll be captivated by the stunning murals by Yip Yew Chong that adorn its walls. Also, don’t miss the iconic Air Raid Shelter, a reminder of the area’s wartime past.
Speaking of the market, it’s an absolute must-visit! It’s home to a plethora of hawker stalls serving up local delights. Be sure to try the Chwee Kueh and Hainanese Curry Rice, among other mouth-watering dishes.
While exploring Tiong Bahru, make sure to check out interesting shops like Cat Socrates. This quirky store is filled with a curated selection of locally designed products, unique arts and crafts, and even a resident cat!

Here, you can delve into the world of sustainable agriculture and understand how food can be grown in an urban environment. CitySprouts offers guided tours, hands-on farming experiences, and engaging workshops that cater to both adults and children. It’s a perfect blend of learning and relaxation amidst nature.
