Wondering where to eat at one-north? TimbrePlus introduces cheap local and international food and after-work drinks at this Western part of Singapore
one-north isn’t exactly the first place that comes to mind when you’re looking for cool digs to knock back pints over gourmet grub, and maybe even take in live music, but that’s all going to change. Timbre’s latest venture, Timbre+, plans to spice up the Westside business district with a positively mammoth new gastropark that’ll feature 35 food and beverage partners. 14 of which are helmed by chef-owners and entrepreneurs, while the rest are traditional mom and pop stalls. And you can even wash all that down with a bucket of beer from Timbre’s self-service bottle shop, featuring rarities and craft brews that will appeal to lovers of boutique beers.
We’re not going to spoil the surprise and name them all, but we’ve picked out five of the outlets we’re most excited about.
Big Bern’s American Grill
The eponymous Big Bern (Bernie Utchenik) is all set to serve up hearty American comfort foods with a little Southern Louisiana spice. Look out for favourites like the Cajun chicken po boy.
Soft, tender fishballs made with 100% fish meat are this new-generation hawker’s forte. If you’re hankering a comforting bowl of fishball noodles, Fishball Story is sure to sate those cravings.
Dust by Slake
Peranakan food doesn’t have to be too rich or fatty. This hip-er, more health conscious take on Peranakan cuisine explores lighter takes on classic dishes with bold elements like rendang oil.
French food doesn’t always have to be a stuffy haute dining affair. Chef-owners, Enoch Teo and Immanuel Tee, serve up classic French fare with modern flair at prices that won’t break the bank.
The World Is Flat by Tanuki Raw
If you’re at Timbre+ with your posse, you can’t go wrong with a couple of slices of pizza to share. Whether you prefer a hearty deep-dish pizza or a flaky flat crust, this new concept will take you beyond the more pedestrian cheeses and toppings.
Food is great and all, but this is Timbre right? So, of course in addition to delectable dining options, from Wednesday to Saturday nights you’ll be regalled by the sweet sounds of Timbre resident musicians The Common People, Sweatshop Jam, Supersonic and OK Ready!. Adding to the hipster-chic appeal of the whole affair is street art from Singaporean urban arts collective, RSCLS, who’ve decked out the gastropark’s shipping containers and vintage Airstream trailers with their whimsical graffiti characters.
Excited yet? Timbre+ opens it’s doors today, so keep your weekends free for a whole slew of beers and a rollicking good time!
Timbre+, 73A Ayer Rajah Crescent JTC LaunchPad @ one-north Singapore 139957. Open Mon-Thu 6am-12am, Fri-Sat 6am-1am. Closed on Sun.
