Embrace the charm of old Singapore at The Old Raffles Place, a restaurant that has made itself comfortable in Collingwood for more than 20 years. The decor is a fair indication of how long it's been around, so don't expect the place to look like Raffles, but you may find it tastes like the old dame. The standout dishes here are the Singaporean hawker-style plates, like the Hainanese chicken rice.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Get a feel for the charm of old Singapore at The Old Raffles Place, which is dedicated to preserving colonial favourites as well as offering hawker-style street food. The decor is a fair indication of how long this mainstay of the local restaurant scene has been around – faded newspaper clippings with vintage stories and photographs adorn the soft pink walls, and the red formica tables and bright lighting give it a slightly timeworn, canteen feel, but there is a relaxed ambience and it is still the food that draws people here.

Try the popular signature dish, Hainanese chicken – an acquired taste as the chicken is served just cooked through and tepid, but is tender and flavoursome with a wonderful texture.
