myVillage – A Sanctuary In the Heart of Serangoon Gardens

A savvy shopping mall located in the heart of the village-like suburb of Serangoon Gardens, myVillage is actually quite a retreat from the city (despite being in a rather centralised location). Standing taller than the neighbourhood average, this chic building with lush greenery entwined along the exterior harbours an array of services and other creature comforts we all need.

Comfort Food:

Wo Peng

Whether you fancy a late night tipple or up for a midday chill session, look no further than Wine Connection. On top of being the leading chain of wine shops in Southeast Asia, its exclusive wines, affordable prices, and a dedicated service team makes this wine shop-restaurant a real gem of a place. However, if you’re craving for classic, comforting Cantonese cuisine, traditional Wo Peng is the place for you. Their dim sum, piping hot soups, and other Chinese signatures are a treat for all, young and old. Best part? Wo Peng’s running a 20% discount on their all-day and dim sum menu till 31st May 2015.

Relish Gardens

For great burgers at decent prices, Relish Gardens‘ specialities are gourmet burgers with Singaporean twists, meaning you can probably relish their entire menu (pun fully intended). To sweeten the deal, a burger (any burger) and Phaha Beer duet is going for only $28++! Last but not least, the ultimate comfort food that never fails to cheer us up – ice cream. Using only the freshest ingredients, Udders Ice Cream is your one-stop destination in the neighbourhood for quality artisanal ice cream.
