Savour the flavours of Southeast Asia at EatAlley: Singapore’s newest food haven in Orchard Road
Singapore’s newest food court, EatAlley, has opened its doors in the vibrant Orchard Road district, offering a wide selection of Southeast Asian delights all in one place. With a seating capacity of 150 in the basement of Orchard Gateway, this air-conditioned casual eatery is set to impress both locals and tourists alike.
EatAlley is the brainchild of Sebastian Low, Chief Executive Officer of the renowned PappaRich restaurant chain. His passion for street food and his desire to bring the flavours of his childhood to Singapore inspired him to create this modern concept. His vision was to provide urban dwellers with convenient access to authentic street fare at affordable prices. At EatAlley, diners can enjoy a variety of street delights, all priced under $10, at any time of the day or night.
The journey to create EatAlley was not an easy one. Low embarked on numerous flights and face-to-face negotiations with authentic street food brands in Kuala Lumpur and beyond in Malaysia. Each brand owner had to be convinced to venture into Singapore while maintaining the same high standards of food quality and ingredients. After much perseverance, Low successfully curated a lineup of stalls that represent the best of Southeast Asian cuisine.
EatAlley’s initial opening phase features seven branded stalls, including Fatty OUG, Kedai Kopi Dan Makanan Hong Lai, Kam Heong Braised Duck, Koon Kee Wantan Mee, Siong Huat Bah Kut Teh, Soong Kee Beef Noodle, and Uncle Beh Pork Noodle. Each stall is managed by a team of expert cooks who underwent extensive training, learning the authentic recipes directly from the brand owners in Malaysia. With a combined history of 300 years, these family-run businesses are now serving mouthwatering meals on Singapore’s bustling Orchard Road.
One stall worth mentioning is Kampung Nasi Lemak, managed by the renowned Malaysian founder nicknamed Fatty. This stall offers traditional nasi lemak kukus, cooked using wooden steamers and paired with a variety of delectable meats and seafood.
Another must-try stall is Hong Lai Hokkien Mee, which has been serving its famous KL-style hokkien mee for over 50 years. Their skillful stir-frying technique and generous portions of fresh seafood make it a crowd favourite.
From Kam Heong Braised Duck’s succulent teochew-style braised duck to Koon Kee Wantan Mee’s duo combo of char siew and braised chicken feet, each stall at EatAlley offers a unique and authentic dining experience.
Whether you’re in the mood for a comforting bowl of Siong Huat Bah Kut Teh or Soong Kee Beef Noodle’s flavourful dry noodles, EatAlley promises to satisfy your cravings with its diverse array of Southeast Asian delicacies.
EatAlley’s arrival in Orchard Road has brought together the best of Southeast Asian street food, allowing diners to savour these authentic flavours under one roof. With affordable prices and a commitment to quality, EatAlley is set to become a go-to destination for food enthusiasts seeking a taste of Southeast Asia’s culinary heritage.
