We started our walk from Orchard Road/ Dhoby Ghaut MRT station and passed POMO. A small mall with some restaurants, food stalls and shops.
Some well known landmarks include Mustafa shopping Centre, Tekka wet market and small streets offering nice cafes and food. It’s amazing what we found on our weekend excursion to Little India and we will share in this post.
Along little India on Serangoon Road
‘Sea coconut’ or fruit of toddy palm
Various herbs from top left – pennywort, basil, sea coconut, moringa, betel nut, and this longish spiky plant that is supposed to be good for itchy skin (boil it with water and use it to bathe as I was told by someone at the stall?!)
Rangoon road cafes
Food’s good on the whole – we had the chicken burger and ribs. Juicy and tender chicken thigh burger and nice ribs. We thought the drink (orange clobbering) could taste better than what I thought tasted a little like ‘cough syrup’ and the fries could be crispier and more well seasoned. But overall the burger was very good so we were happy. The restaurant was a joy for any action hero fan and is really popular with families especially on weekends when they serve lunch.
Views of the streets and colorful umbrella trees.
This walk took us about 7 hours including cafe hopping. Though the heat was unbearable, it was still fun and enjoyable. The cool drinks and good food helped.
