Di Tanjong Katong
One lovely Sunday morning, we took a walk back down the memory lane of Tanjong Katong. Having lived in Ang Mo Kio for more than 20 years, I’m always thrilled to explore places at the other side of the island.
We first met at Katong Shopping Centre and had a plate of yummy chicken rice. Then, we walked through the shophouses of Katong District where we saw an indian temple.
Katong is a place where you will find many Peranakan shops. Here at the Katong Antique House, you will see a part shop and part museum concept where the owners have carefully preserved a rare peranakan collection and artifacts of the family. You will be charmed by the colorful jewelry and clothes of the peranakan culture.
There are also some old school shops in the area where you can find our childhood biscuits and laidback 1950s ambience coffee shop.
Katong’s rich cultural mix has contributed to its unique cuisine. Katong is well known for its restaurants serving Peranakan (Straits Chinese) cuisine, particularly a spicy Malay noodle soup called Peranakan lakes. If you are here, don’t forget to have a bowl of Katong Laksa!
