Let me ask you a question, how well do you know your own neighbourhood, from the nice foodie places to hidden nice locations? How about the other neighbourhoods in Singapore? Due to the ongoing global pandemic situation, we can’t travel out of Singapore for our overseas holidays. Now, this would be the best time to embark on your #SingapoRedisovers adventures, travel and explore around your local neighbourhood and others as well, you can #jalaneat, #jalanshop, #jalansee and #jalando, rediscover the hidden gems in your local neighbourhood. Most recently, I went on a #jalanhuat to Clementi, my local neighbourhood.
Thanks to foodie influencer Keropokman for inviting me to join #jalanhuat to Clementi, part of jalanjalan.me ground up initiative and movement supporting local businesses, curated by residents. Being a Clementi/West Coast resident, I thought I would know most of the places in my neighbourhood. Never did I realise that I have been missing out on some hidden gems in my own local neighbourhood!
Now let me bring you on my #jalanhuat foodie adventure to Clementi, for a #jalaneat, #jalanshop, #jalansee and #jalando fun time!
The Cheese House Singapore
First and foremost, I am not the biggest cheese lover. It took me a bit longer than most other people to appreciate cheese, thanks to my friend Chef Keith for his cheese platter selections whenever we dine at his home. When I visited The Cheese House, I was blown away by their selection of farmhouse and artisan cheese on offer.
During my visit to The Cheese House Singapore, I learnt a lot more about cheese, their production and selection of farmhouse and artisan cheese in their shop. I also learnt how to create my own cheese platter using the world’s best cheese from traditional farms, along with artisanal pairings to make a cheese platter.
If you are a cheese lover in Singapore, you definitely have to check out The Cheese House Singapore for their farmhouse and artisan cheese selections.

Igokochi Dining Bar
Are you a Japanese food lover? If yes, do you love an omakase meal? For the folks staying in the Western part of Singapore, you can enjoy an omakase meal in the neighbourhood of West Coast/Clementi! Introducing Igokochi Dining Bar, they offers a range of authentic Japanese dining experiences, including delicious omakase meals tailor-made to your tastes using seasonal ingredients. They offer the highest quality ingredients at affordable prices.
Not just omakase, Igokochi Dining Bar has sushi on their menu too. Oh yes, they also have an Izakaya menu too and a nice cosy bar with Japanese whisky (Nikka – my favourite), Sake etc. I am missing Japanese cuisine since I can’t travel to Japan during this period and Igokochi Dining Bar is likely to be my hangout for Japanese cuisine and drinking place. Oh yes, it’s near my home too!

簡單。| Simple café
For cafe lovers who love Taiwanese design, industrial space setting with a minimalist style, you will love 簡單。| Simple café at Newest Mall. Personally, I am a big fan of such cafes, it’s really nice to discover them in Singapore, best of all, they are located in my Clementi neighbourhood, within walking distance to my home.
They have a nice selection of signature sweet treats such as their Vanilla & Lemon filled donuts, Berry, Satsuma, Bagel (Cream Cheese) and Mont Blanc. If you are a pastries and cakes lover, you have to visit them and check them out! Do check out their iced uji matcha and hot Osmanthus oolong from Alishan as well!

So much more to #jalanhuat, #jalaneat, #jalanshop, #jalansee and #jalando in the heartlands!
I would like to thank foodie influencer Keropokman for the invitation to join him on the #jalanhuat to Clementi, exploring and discovering my local neighbourhood food gems that I might have missed out even though I am staying in the Clementi neighbourhood. Thanks to this #jalanhuat adventure, I got to learn more about jalanjalan.me ground up initiative and movement supporting local businesses, curated by residents.
As a local explorer, photographer myself who had done a fair bit of walking, eating and exploring different neighbourhoods in Singapore, I realised that I have a lot more hidden gems to discover in Singapore!
Since we still can’t travel out of Singapore due to the ongoing global pandemic situation, let’s take this time to learn, understand and know more about our home ground, Singapore. Not only can we take this opportunity to be a local tourist, enjoy and have fun, we are also supporting our local businesses too!
Good things must share! Since there are many more hidden food gems in other neighbourhoods in Singapore that you can go out, explore and discover as you embark on your own SingapoRediscovers #jalanhuat adventure to #jalaneat, #jalanshop, #jalansee and #jalando, not just in Clementi, in other neighbourhoods in Singapore such as Bedok, Ang Mo Kio, Chong Pang, Jalan Besar etc etc?
Remember to Pay-It-Forward and Pass-It-On! Sharing is Caring! Who doesn’t want to know where are the nice and delicious food places to visit in Singapore?
