Piggybacking off food truck trends, a growing number of eateries are popping up inside shipping containers. One such eatery is Timbre+ Eastside, which will officially open its doors to the public on November 27.
Located at Singapore Expo and MAX Atria, this second food park by Timbre Group is said to be Singapore’s first sustainable food park. It also houses a wide array of scrumptious food options from okonomiyaki and kebabs to Mookata and mala. Aside from being a food park, Timbre+ Eastside also has retail stores, a playground, a book swap corner as well as music and entertainment. This vibrant container-style eatery boasts a massive space that can accommodate 800 people, and it may just be the next hangout spot with your family and friends.
For local fare, hungry diners can tuck into Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak, Zi Jia Yong Tau Foo, Soon Soon Teochew Porridge or Lao Niang De Dian’s BBQ stingray. For some Japanese grub, Ajiya Okonomiyaki will get your okonomiyaki cravings fixed and if you wish to have some Western food, chow down on tasty sandwiches from Wolf Burgers. Other food options include Kopifellas’ Smoked Duck Lor Mee and Huat Huat BBQ Chicken Wings.
Timbre+ Eastside also has a playground for kids to entertain themselves while parents get in a meal. Additionally, the eatery is located along the cycling path, so it's convenient for cyclists to get a drink or refuel before powering on. On weekends, expect adrenaline-pumping exercises classes at the multi-purpose space, and food fairs at Studio+.
If you are heading down this November 27, expect vintage cars, bicycles and supercars lined up outside for photo-taking opportunities. For cycling enthusiasts, Cycling Clinic will be offering cycling safety workshops and maintenance as well. For those who wish to do some Christmas shopping, you can do so at the all-day Festive-themed Fair at Studio+.
