5 stunning restaurants to check out in Dempsey Hill

6 January 2020

The idyllic enclave offers a bevy of cuisines and styles that are perfect for romantic dates and lazy weekend brunches.

Little House of Dreams
Just as its name suggests, this homegrown bakery-turned-restaurant is just like a house filled with sweet, pastel-hued dreams. Upon entering the restaurant, you will be greeted by a long display counter filled with the prettiest desserts that taste as good as they look. The restaurant first started out an online bakery in 2008, the restaurant has since expanded its offering to a comprehensive menu, including rice bowls and grills. Get a pasta, side or dessert and enjoy another one on us for free.

On the menu: expect quality cuts like Prime Rib, Wagyu Rib Eye, and Kurobuta Collar, plus authentic Korean eats like Seafood Spring Onion Pancake, Preserved Kimchi Stew with Pork or Mackerel Pick.

La Ventana
Housed in a colonial building and surrounded by tranquil greenery at the heart of Dempsey Hill, La Ventana boasts two Spanish Michelin-starred powerhouses – Chefs Roberto Terradillos and Toni Gonzalez - who–bring their culinary magic to life in the form of authentic Spanish eats. Must-tries include the Beef Carpaccio Foie Gras, Calamari on “All-i-Oli” Squid Ink Foam, and Iberian Presa Charcoal-Fried, Carrot & Toasted Coffee.

Moca Cafe
Combining contemporary art with good food and bucolic surroundings, you will first encounter stand-out structures and sculptures before you enter the restaurant. Within, natural light floods the interiors thanks to its full-length glass windows that afford visitors a few of the sculptures and the space’s bucolic surroundings. Dishes to try include Deep Fried & Pan Seared Red Snapper, and Cajun Baby Boneless Chick.

Open Farm Community
One of the first to introduce farm-to-table dining in Singapore, Open Farm Community allows diners to interact and learn more about local farming. Besides being entranced by the food presented on the table, head to the edible garden and observe and connect with farmers to know what exactly goes into the plate. We also love how the restaurant design seems to mimic a gigantic greenhouse that exudes a rustic, back-to-nature and laidback vibes.
