Debbie discovers Tiong Bahru is my personal local guide to Tiong Bahru.  This has all my go-to places in Tiong Bahru. Click on each icon for more details.

How To Use

The map has reviews of my apartment, cafes, restaurants, convenience stores, book stores / retail outlets, massage places, ATM machines, and directions to the nearest train station.  I’ve put the full list below.

One thing I love about these maps is the ability to layer the maps – and the ability to add or remove layers.

In the second layer, I’ve listed all my favourite restaurants / cafes in Tiong Bahru, convenience stores, book stores, massage places (including a secret Japanese Izakaya hidden behind a traditional coffee shop, secret phone numbers  in case you want to have some groceries delivered and who you call to get food delivered at any time of the day)

Getting Around: $8 off Grab Taxi for your First Ride

You can use Uber in Singapore but most locals use a local equivalent – Grab. Download the app from the respective App Stores.  The unit number is not visible from the road, so your best bet is to use the porridge place as your booking address, and the taxi will call when they’re outside.

Ah Chiang’s Porridge 65 Tiong Poh Rd, Singapore 160065.
