Tanjong Pagar

Tanjong Pagar was a historic centre for Singapore's Chinese community. It is now a cosmopolitan area within walking distance of the CDB with a wide range of old and new shops. It is a good place for a lunch time meal with office workers, a post work hangout area for pubs and fine dining and a pleasant place to explore cafes and eclectic shops on a lazy weekend afternoon.

Some updates in the area 31/3/12

Some news I read on Business times today:

News 1: Le Petit Cancale
Le Petit Cancale which is part of the the Deliciae group behind L' Entrecote, 83 and Sabio is finally opening next week in Duxton Hill. All their restaurants so far have been in the Tanjong Pagar Area. They are over running this area but fortunately, their food is alright. This place looks like seafood will be the focus.

News 2: Absinthe
Absinthe is relocating to Boat Quay end of April. I'm not terribly upset by this. The food there is good but not really unique. With so many places in Singapore popping up, I will say it's not really the place to go anymore compared to 3 years ago.
Apparently, taking over the Absinthe spot will be a restaurant called Hashi, helmed by former head chef of Nobu Melbourne, Tadashi Takahashi,

News 3: Le Nicholas
This is sad news to me. One of my favourite restaurants in the area Le Nicholas is moving on after 5 years in the Keong Saik Road Spot. It will reopen in a different area in Jul or August.

News 4: Fifty Three
Fifty Three will be moving to 42 Tras Street. I haven't had the chance to try this place and finally will.
