I took a stroll along Joo Chiat Road on a cooling late afternoon to continue my search for authentic Vietnamese food in Singapore.

Image from Google Map – Joo Chiat Road is the main road connecting Geylang Road and Marine Parade Road (See green dots above).

Joo Chiat road is known as a ‘red light’ district. This fact is made even more apparent with the abundance of motels and hotel 81 branches. There are also several pawn shops, dubious financial institutes, bars & ktv etc.

However,  the street also housed some very beautiful shop houses and interesting eateries (ranging from otah shop wholesaler, curry puffs stores to ice cream parlors)!


Joo Chiat Complex sits right at the start of the road and you will also be greeted with the first Hotel 81 along Joo Chiat Road.

Look at the nice shop houses. I read somewhere that Joo Chiat was classified as a conservation area to preserve the remaining little history in Singapore.


The first sight of Vietnamese food! There are 2 stalls selling Vietnamese cuisine in Eastern Wind Foodhouse.


[Left] Vietnamese Favourites
[Right] A nameless banh mi shop. They also sell freshly grilled cuttlefish which I tried in Saigon previously. The taste was very strong but it went extremely well with beer.


[Left] Pretty shophouses
[Right] A new gelato shop - Chocolato. Looks pretty interesting.


I reached the row of Vietnamese eateries after a couple more steps.  Starting from Quynh Giao Quan An Vietnam Restaurant (Will review separately), the now defunct Saigon house to the popular Long Phung Vietnamese Restaurant.

[LEFT] Hotel 81- Sukura right after the Vietnamese eateries.
[RIGHT] Hotel 81 – Opera is a stone throw away.


[LEFT] Cakes and Cravings – The cupcakes looked pretty good!
[RIGHT] Home’s Favourite is located just beside Cakes and Cravings – their raisin champagne cookies are really tasty. I always buy several tins for Chinese New Year.

Quan An Vietnam Eatery (Will review separately) - The last Vietnamese eatery along Joo Chiat road before reaching the junction.


[LEFT] The 4th Hotel 81 along Joo Chiat Road. There are actually 4 branches of Hotel 81 in less than 1km! :D
[RIGHT] Chocolate Atelier – This is a great discovery! Atelier offers chocolate making & baking classes etc. It is so hard to find any baking schools in the east!

This marked the end of my walk in little Vietnam. It was a very interesting experience!

My reviews of Quynh Giao Quan An Vietnam Restaurant and Quan An Vietnam Eatery will follow soon. Do let me know if I miss out any Vietnamese eatery along Joo Chiat Road!

Add:
- Vietnamese Favourites in Eastern Wind FoodHouse (82 Joo Chiat Road)
- Quynh Giao Quan An Vietnam Restaurant (149 Joo Chiat Road)
- Long Phung Vietnamese Restaurant  (159 Joo Chiat Road)
- Quan An Vietnam Eatery (233 Joo Chiat Road)
