Paya Lebar, as we know it today, is a lively district.
However, this was not the case just a few years ago. Home to two MRT lines, Paya Lebar was once a transition station, a place where commuters from the East-West line used to switch to the Circle Line and vice versa – and that’s about it.
With the construction of the Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) mixed-use development, however, that all changed. The sprawling four-hectare complex has seen a combination of residential, retail and office space, and today it’s one of the most convenient places residents can go for just about anything they need. need.
From late-night aperitifs (as late as it gets) to afternoon brunch, we’ve got you covered for every restaurant in the neighborhood.
Here is where to eat and drink in Paya Lebar:

Call us basic, but Kajiken is one of our favorite places for a Mazesoba fix. The chain is probably the first, if not one of the first dedicated soba maze restaurants in Singapore which opened in 2016. The constant queues and crowded seating, as in many places in Singapore, is a good food indicator: many come for the classic Mazesoba Nagoya style, but if you feel really If you’re feeling peckish that day, you better order a bowl of Mazesobe With All Toppings.

Patisserie Clé is probably the first place we would think of for delicious pies, and we will never pass up the opportunity to order some for a special occasion. In addition to the seasonal flavors and the Orh Blanc tart, we also find the Personalized Tart Gift Box particularly pleasant to bring to your gatherings.
