Joo Chiat is an eastern Singapore residential neighborhood noted for its Peranakan culture. Peranakans are descendants of 15th- through 17th-century Chinese and Indian immigrants who ultimately married non-Muslim natives from the Malay Archipelago. The neighborhood is named after Chew Joo Chiat, a wealthy landowner who once owned most of the land in the area.

Today, Joo Chiat is best known for its rows of traditional Peranakan structures—colorful two-story shops and terrace homes with ceramic tiles, ornate facades and Chinese motifs. These shop-houses dominated the area back in the 1920s and 1930s. The Katong Antique House is a fully restored Peranakan family home with antiques and artifacts on display, and Rumah Bebe is a shop and restaurant noted for its well-preserved façade. This is an ideal place to purchase handicrafts and gifts to bring back home with you.

Joo Chiat is also one of the Singapore’s best food destinations. Be sure to sample local specialties like Katong Laska, white rice noodles in a spicy coconut milk broth, or Nynona dumplings, glutinous rice dumplings filled with pork cubes fried with coriander powder and wrapped in pandan leaves.

Private Tour: Singapore Heritage Food Tour -

Private Tour: Singapore Heritage Food Tour -

Singapore's ethnic and cultural diversity is extremely conspicuous as seen by the huge range of its local cuisines, specifically Chinese, Malay, Indian and Peranakan. The lively Geylang Serai market sits at the heart of the Malay community. Understandably, it features predominately Malay cuisine. However, plenty of Indian fare can be found here too. This famous market has a wet section selling fresh produce, from live fish to spices, as well as a food centre upstairs. It is the place to enjoy Singaporean favourites like Roti Prata and Thosai with a creamy glass of Teh Tarik. The Joo Chiat / Katong neighbourhood is an area rich in history and exquisite architecture of pre-war shophouses. This neighbourhood is home to the famous Laksa (a spicy noodle soup popular in Peranakan cuisine) and Ondeh Ondeh (a glutinous rice balls dessert). Visit Kim Choo Kueh Chang, named after matriarch Madam Lee Kim Choo, whose nyonya rice dumplings have been devoured by locals since 1945.
