What’s Up TTDI 2019

Artisan Roast Coffee

Neighbourhood coffee and brunch joint

Artisan Roast Coffee is definitely a local’s favourite, with over 80% of their customers are regulars; everyone knows everyone! They mostly serve brunch meals with a variety of coffee to sip and cakes to nibble.

The ‘Nitrokopi’ – a smooth iced coffee, with a nutty aftertaste – is a must try, as it is made with seasonally sourced coffee beans. They are steeped for a day, and Manuka honey is added after. Nitrogen gas is then added to the mixture process and is left untouched for another day.

Soma Cocktail Bar

For the chill, after-work drinks

Tucked between a local clinic and sundry shop, Soma Cocktail Bar is the latest addition to the TTDI neighbourhood. They offer a little bit of everything for everyone. Their bartenders are able to make creative catering to all taste buds – ask for the ‘bartender’s choice’.

The Tau Foo Fah with a dash of rum is definitely highly recommended if you’re looking for something a little different.

Topshelf

Friendly neighbourhood restaurant

Topshelf is a modern French bistro located on the quieter side of the TTDI neighbourhood. Its interior is industrial but classy, filled with paintings which add a bit of colour to the warm lighting and cozy environment.

“The food pays homage to modern French cooking, along with some classic touches which give you the best combinations of flavours.”

Sixty Bites

For the simple cravings

‘Unassuming’ is an understatement for this burger place, a single stall that stands on a street right next to the highway, opposite three petrol stations. The open-air grill sends smoke wafting up during the 45-minute to one-hour wait for their delicious hearty burgers.

The Hannibal – masala spiked lamb patty, marinated grilled eggplant, and spicy-sweet mango chutney mayo – is a crowd favourite, but only available Thursdays to Saturdays.

Tip: They only start grilling at 8pm, but they start taking orders by phone at 7:30pm!
