North-east residents rejoice! The new kid on the block – Seletar Aerospace – is currently where all the hipsters are now hanging out at!

The recently redeveloped area at Seletar Aerospace Park is also known as The Oval. This sprawling plot of land boasts a cluster of 32 black and white colonial bungalows. Gazetted for conservation, these stunning bungalows now house various restaurants for that ultimate dining experience.

The once-secluded area of Seletar just got more hip. All because of the onslaught of chichi restaurants and cafes that serve up fancy food, fancy cocktails and fancy coffee. Away from the bustling city roads, this place provides a serene and almost country-like atmosphere rarely found in our cosmopolitan Singapore.

While Seletar Aerospace might be slightly inaccessible (though Punggol and Yishun residents might beg to differ), it is no doubt a trip worth making. So head down to this new foodie enclave and savour some delectable food fare while enjoying the quiet setting. At the rate of its increasing popularity, this place might start getting more crowded in time to come!
