The New Rasa Singapura: our local

I don’t hang out at pubs much these days, but I do like the idea of having a Local: near to home, friendly folks, ice-cold beer, nostalgic comfort foods.  The New Rasa Singapura is such as a place: we feel welcome even when we show up sweaty from a run.

This quaint little social enterprise is named in memory of the original Rasa Singapura food centre which was located across the traffic junction.  I recall frequenting this food centre as a child.

Even more memorable was the nearby fountain at the Tanglin traffic circus.  I remember making my parents drive round and round just so that I could look at the mesmerising water patterns!
