photo The Playground Coffee 1.jpg
Here are 21 cafes in the far west of Singapore that you probably have never heard of. And we mean the extreme west, like Pioneer to Dover so cafes in Holland Village and Bukit Timah are not covered in this listicle. The independent cafes featured are not part of any chains and are not located in shopping malls. If you're planning a cafe-hopping trip to the west side, our little list might be of help!

Kakiin Oyster Bar - Cozy New Japanese Izakaya in Orchard Plaza with Good Food

kakiin_oyster_bar
Kakiin Oyster Bar is a cozy Japanese izakaya in Orchard Plaza which accommodates 8-10 people in each seating. We made a reservation online for the 615pm seating but realised that it was already half full when we got there punctually. I later realised that the seatings run from 530pm - 8pm, and from 815pm - 1030pm. As everyone is seated at the counter, we could all watch the Japanese chef, and his 2 assistants, hard at work while navigating skillfully around the tiny kitchen. Even though the space is small, it did not reek of oil, or left us smelling like a walking bbq or fryer after we were done with the meal.

Tablescape Restaurant & Bar - New Modern European Creations & Dinner Degustation Menus

tablescape_degustation_menu_singapore 
I still think about my last visit to Tablescape at Grand Park City Hall, where I was blown away by their outstanding Risotto, and delicious Fettuccine that was topped with an unbelievably generous sprinkling of fresh black truffles. The modern European restaurant has undergone some changes, and has a new executive chef at the helm. Hence, you can, of course, expect a refreshed a la carte menu with new creations, and also spanking new degustation menus(4 course - $88, 6 course - $108, 8 course - $128) come dinnertime.
