Shopping Gems in Little India
The City Square Mall is an eco-friendly mall and the first of its kind in Singapore, and just 5-minute stroll from Tresor Tavern Hotel. Integrated with a 49,000 sq ft urban park, this green carpet provides a refreshing welcoming experience for guests and fun for families with children. City Square Mall offers a wide variety of restaurants and cafes serving international cuisine and as well plentiful fashion boutiques and electronics stores.
One shopping gem visitors simply cannot miss is the 24-hour Mustafa Center on Syed Alwi Road, just 10-minute walk from hotel’s doorstep. This 24-hour shopping haven is stocked with very competitively priced items like apparels, shoes, sports equipment, health supplements, laptops, digital cameras, mobile phones to even gold jewelry and Swiss branded watches like Swatch, Longines and Tag Heuer. The exterior of this shopping emporium may seem modest, but don’t let that stop you from paying a visit.
Spicy and Tasty Flavors of Little India
Little India is Singapore’s most authentic cultural district and the sights, sounds and smell here are simply spellbinding. The area is also highlighted with an abundance of dining options that specialize in vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian cuisine.
Komala Villas is a well established vegetarian restaurant located on 78 Serangoon Road. It’s definitely worth the 20-minute walk from Tresor Tavrn Hotel with its wide variety of authentic and savory North and South Indian cuisine. Being Little India’s oldest diner (since 1947), this South Indian eatery may come across as being a bit loud, but the food inside will definitely make up for it. Some of the specialties here are Indian breads (roti), dal (lentils), briyani (rice), special sauces and curries.
If you’ve heard so much about Curry Fish Head, then head for The Banana Leaf Apolo restaurant at 53 Race Course Road. The restaurant is about 20-minute walk from hotel and this can be a good walking exercise to work up the appetite. The signature dish that one must order here is the fish head curry expertly cooked till the meat melts in your mouth. Although the heavily spiced dishes here looked deadly to non-chili eaters, rest assured that it won’t send you to spice hell.
Alluring Places of Worship in Little India
Located at 41 Dunlop Sreet, the Abdul Gaffoor Mosque is located in area that was originally occupied by Baweanese syces, horse trainers and South Indian Muslim merchants. Abdul Gaffor Mosque was built in 1907 and underwent extensive restoration in 2003 to its former glory to exemplify a combination of Moorish and South Indian architectural influences. This national monument is inviting with Saracen pillars, quaint mini-minarets and magnificent colored glass cupola.
Your trip to Little India wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, which is located on main Serangoon Road. This epic historical monument is one of the oldest Indian temples in Singapore, and its architectural elegance will simply awe and inspire you. Pioneered by Tamil laborers in 1881, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple features an majestic and colorful Gopuram or gate tower at the entrance. Definitely makes a postcard worthy image shot!
