We went to Joe’s Butcher for oxtails, seeing that it’s a cheaper alternative to Cold Storage, but recently, the guys there have been too arrogant with familiar faces. We asked for a particular tail that we had our eye on, but the guy rummaged through...More

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,

I haven't bought a saree in Singapore but there are certainly plenty to choose from at Tekka in many standards of quality. Find one you like then try your negotiating skills.

Yes. Today is the second day and most of the stall owners are Indians. So they should be open for business
