Opened by sisters Caroline and Melissa, the Carol Mel cafe sells a fusion of Western cuisine. Their diverse menu and quality of food will make the trip down to Tai Seng worthwhile. For mains, you must try the Italian Braised Lamb Shank. The lamb is served with a delicious red wine sauce and aglio olio with a side of salad. Alternatively, you could try their Ah Gong Style Roast Pork Rice Bowl which comes with healthy veggies and topped with an onsen egg. Then wrap up your meal with their signature Whimsical Waffles which has a weird mix of sweet, savoury, salty, and pungent but it all surprisingly works out.

Located next to Tai Seng MRT, The Flame Cafe is a Halal restaurant that offers a 4-tier barbecue steamboat. Talk about stepping up the Steamboat game.

Steam your ingredients on the first tier, fill it with cheese on the second, BBQ on the third, and boil your soup on the fourth.

We’d like to call The Oven the gem of Tai Seng district. The Oven sells Western dishes and specialises in making pasta and pizzas. Also called the one-man show, Chef James Loh hosts, whips up the dishes, and serves them to you. The cafe is famed for its chicken dishes such as the Baked Chicken Alfredo Pasta and Chicken Pomodoro Pasta. Their cream-based pasta is something you shouldn’t miss out on too! We’d recommend this cafe to pasta lovers or anyone looking for a cosy place to dine in.

4. Belgaufra

If you’re in need of some scrummy treats, Belgaufra has got you covered with their authentic Belgium Liege Waffles. It all started when the owners of Belgaufra saw snaking queues at a waffle stall when they were vacationing in Belgium. They joined in the queue, had a taste of the awesome Belgaufra waffles, and now it’s in Singapore. The waffles are thick and chewy with every bite with a perfect crisp on the outer layer. Top it off with their gelato and you’re ready to devour it!
