Where to wine and dine in Woodleigh, Singapore’s hidden gem

Woodleigh’s a neighbourhood most Singaporeans have only heard of when passing by on the North East line. However, this neighbourhood is an undiscovered gem. It boasts a long history, and is home to 100 colonial era black and white houses hidden behind lush foliage on Woodleigh Park. Walking around, you will chance upon independent cafes and delicious local eats.

If you haven’t heard of Woodleigh yet, you probably will in the next few years. The quaint neighbourhood is being developed very rapidly, and will be home to the impressive Bidadari Estate master plan — which sees the addition of residential homes, a 10ha Bidadari Park, and a commercial development that will be built right next to Woodleigh MRT station.

One of the condominiums being built in the area is the up-and-coming The Woodleigh Residences, a development by Japanese property developer Kajima Development and Singapore Press Holdings (SPH). The property will allow residents to enjoy Japanese zen at the city fringe, minutes away from the Central Business District — and just five stops from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.

Whether you’re planning to invest in a property there, or simply want to check out a new neighbourhood this weekend, we’ve rounded up the best places to wine and dine in Woodleigh.

Bars

5. Plonk on Maju

This Australian bistro-bar in Serangoon Gardens is one of the area’s best kept secret. Sit back and chill out with a beer (or “plonk”, as they call it in Australia) while listening to the different live musicians on their upper deck. If you’re feeling peckish, try the coconut and lemongrass prawns, chicken schnitzel, iberico ham, mushroom and marinated artichoke pizza.
