Dining guide to Dempsey Hill

Created with Sketch.

Dempsey Hill isn’t the most accessible of dining enclaves in Singapore, but that hasn’t stopped anyone from making a trip or two over there.

The hill-top area is steeped in history. Its colonial buildings once housed British and Singaporean soldiers, then furniture shops and art galleries, and more recently a slew of upscale restaurants and eateries. Certainly, the place is a popular spot for expats to get away from the bustling city and have brunch in peace. Yet, this isn’t just a cafe hotspot.

After several small-scale renovations, Dempsey Hill has been welcoming new concepts. Luxury hotelier, COMO, has taken up a good amount of space for a variety of concepts such as The Dempsey Cookhouse and a refreshed Culina bistro/marketplace.

Here’s where else to eat around the area.

6. Min Jiang at Dempsey

After 12 years at Rochester Park, Chinese restaurant Min Jiang now has a new home in the idyllic Dempsey enclave. Natural materials of wood and rattan offer an airy light-filled dining area: a refreshing contrast to the dark and serious Chinoiserie-led banquet halls of its Goodwood Park Hotel sister and other Chinese restaurants. Cuisine-wise, Minjiang at Dempsey goes for modern showcases of nostalgic Cantonese and Sichuan dishes.
