Singapore’s Lavender district was once the site of British colonial settlements in the early 19th century. The area has since gone through dramatic changes and now has many places serving cheap, local food. Here are the best places to grab a bite to eat in the district.
Located in Little India, Lagnaa Barefood Dining is a little far from the Lavender MRT station but offers a great dining experience. Here, visitors can – you guessed it – remove their shoes and sit on cushions on the floor. For those who prefer a more conventional restaurant setting, regular shoes-on dining with chairs is also available. To create a warm and homely atmosphere, the family-run restaurant can only seat 37 guests, so be sure to make a reservation, especially on weekends.
