Arguably the new “it” spot, Outram Park is chock-full of popular eateries and undiscovered gems — all centrally located in Singapore. 

Aside from well-known places such as Homeground Coffee Roasters and Pasta Bar, there’s plenty more to explore in the area. 

Whether you’re looking for ideas on where to go for a date night or a place to have a tete-a-tete with friends, this guide has something for you. 

So venture beyond your usual hideouts and find yourself some new haunts with our guide.

1. The Better Half 

1 Everton Park, 01-43
Open: Tuesday to Sunday (10am to 4pm)

Why visit? This charming and intimate space is testament to the magic of handcrafted goods. The desserts found here are handmade with pure ingredients by one half of the duo behind The Better Half. It’s a stone’s throw from Outram Park MRT station and within walking distance of nearby eateries — making it an ideal spot for dessert. 

Price range: $

Crowd faves: The earl grey lavender sliced cake (S$8) is a classic that’s bound to impress with its fragrant floral notes. For something a little different, try the orange almond brown butter cake (S$8) or the coconut white peach cake (S$9.50). Fans of the place have also sung praises of its mint mocha (S$6.50).

2. 46 Mittsu 

2 Everton Park, 01-61
Open: Tuesday to Sunday (8am to 3pm, or until sold out)

Why visit? Known for its innovative flavours and messy sandwiches, 46 Mittsu is a must-try if you’re a sandwich lover. Just a few months after it relaunched at its new home in Everton Park, the sandwich maestros have revamped the menu to introduce customers to novel tastes. 

Price range: $$

Crowd faves: The B.E.C. (S$14) is an unbeatable classic loved by many, though with a new brioche base. A secret is to order the sandwich with hash (S$2). We also can’t wait to try Disco Jangjang (S$15), a sandwich made with pork shabu-shabu, romaine lettuce, smashed cucumber and scrambled eggs. 

3. Soon Heng Pork Noodles

120 Neil Road 
Open: Monday to Saturday (8am to 3pm)

Why visit? The OG easties know that the soupy bak chor mee (minced pork noodles) at Bedok 538 Market and Food Centre rivals the famous ones at Bedok 85 Market. And we’d like to let you in on a little secret: Soon Heng Pork Noodles’ recipe comes from that very stall, so you won’t have to make the trek to Bedok for your bak chor mee fix. 

Price range: $

Crowd faves: The stall sells just one thing: Bak chor mee. It’s available in small (S$5) and large sizes (S$6). The noodles can also be selected based on your preference, though we’re partial to the mee kia (thin egg noodles). 

4. Utu

12 Jiak Chuan Road 
Open: Tuesday to Friday (10am to 4pm, 6pm to 9.30pm), Saturday and Sunday (9am to 4pm, 6pm to 9.30pm)

Why visit? If you’re looking for a unique dining experience with your friends, Utu should be on your list. The eclectic cafe-lounge has Bohemian-esque decor and vibrant colours that will have you feeling right at home, making it the perfect casual dinner spot for catching up with friends. 

Price range: $$$

Crowd faves: Utu serves authentic African cuisine, a style of cooking not often found in Singapore. Of course, take the opportunity to dig into as many dishes as possible, starting with its bhajia (S$17) — a red ruby potato dish served with spicy tomato chutney. Add a bit of heat to your dinner with the Nigerian fiery peppered pork stew (S$33), which is served with mango salsa and coconut rice.

5. O Happi Place 

5 Everton Park, 01-22
Open: Tuesday to Thursday, and Sunday (12.30pm to 9pm), Friday and Saturday (12.30pm to 10pm)

Why visit? Located five minutes from Outram Park MRT station, O Happi Place is a convenient spot to feed your dessert cravings. The cafe is best known for its unique gelato flavours, waffles and croffles (a croissant-waffle hybrid). 

Price range: $

Crowd faves: Popular flavours include Ju Pu (from S$5.50), a blend of pu erh and chrysanthemum teas, and lychee oolong (S$4.50). Opt for the crispy-edged waffles (from S$6.50), or the buttery and rich croffle (S$7.50), to go with your gelato.

6. Afterglow 

24 Keong Saik Road 
Open: Monday to Saturday (12pm to 10pm)

Why visit? Afterglow’s entire menu is plant-based, making it a suitable spot for those with strict dietary restrictions. And while we may have the pre-conceived notion that plant-based foods are boring or atypical, Afterglow’s offerings certainly overturn that stereotype. 

Price range: $$

Crowd faves: If you’ve never had a cauliflower “steak” (S$25), now’s your chance. The baked cauliflower is imbued with a deep and comforting flavour. It’s served with sweet potato mash, pumpkin seeds and more, to add variety to the dish — not too different from a regular steak, we suppose. Otherwise, go for salads such as Kyoto Summer (S$16). You may be pleasantly surprised to find how good the salad is. 

7. Humpback

18-20 Bukit Pasoh Road
Open: Monday, and Wednesday to Friday (5pm to 11pm), Saturday (12pm to 11pm), Sunday (12pm to 9pm)

Why visit? Humpback specialises in fresh seafood dishes that are guaranteed to tantalise your taste buds. The team behind Humpback innovates with different dishes, depending on what seafood is in season so that you get the freshest catch while you’re there. 

Price range: $$$

Crowd faves: The sea scallop with orange and gochujang (S$24) is a quirky combination that somehow works. Otherwise, opt for Humpback’s ricotta cavatelli with swordfish bacon and Chitose corn (S$28) for simpler flavours.  

8. Nuage Patisserie & Boulangerie 

47 Kampong Bahru Road
Open: Monday to Tuesday, and Thursday to Friday (11am to 6pm), Saturday and Sunday (10am to 5pm)

Why visit? Sweet dreams are made of desserts from Nuage Patisserie & Boulangerie. The patisserie serves French-inspired pastries and intriguing desserts in novel shapes and designs. If you’re looking for a place to chill for the day, Nuage will hit the spot. 

Price range: $$

Crowd faves: Fans of the once-viral circular croissant should try Nuage’s sesame mochi pom pom (S$6.80), a unique flavour we’ve yet to come across. If you manage to catch its taro tart (S$10.80) on display, be sure to try the beautiful floral-shaped dessert.
