Sinpopo Joo Chiat Road, Katong: Breaking News For 2023
Updated booking link below: with a few clicks, you'll be locked in and dining...
Sinpopo Joo Chiat Road, Katong has some big bad Breaking News for 2023. It is no longer Sinpopo Joo Chiat Road, Katong, but will now be called Sinpopo Brand Restaurant @ TANGS. Maybe not looking for the heritage roots of Singapore suburbs anymore, and looking for top-end spenders and tourism.
Remember that quote from the Katong Menu:
“Sinpopo is an ode to Katong and its heritage. Since the 1950’s Katong has been well-known for its unique Peranakan culture and cuisine. Today, Katong is completely different. With a plethora of Western-style cafes and restaurants, large shopping malls, and condominiums, Katong‘s heritage and its heritage businesses are being crowded out.
Sinpopo says: Goodbye, Katong!!!
Very much more fine dining design options have been taken it seems. Perhaps keeping up with Violet Oon, by locating in major shopping centres, not Singaporean heritage suburbs. It’s a shame to say goodbye to this restaurant in Katong, and we won’t be visiting Orchard any time soon, shopping for free aircon is not in our DNA.
The new Sinpopo Brand flagship restaurant, called Sinpopo Tangs, is situated in Singapore‘s Tangs in Tang Plaza on Orchard Road. Local Singaporean classics are still to be combined with delectable modern flavours at Sinpopo Tangs to create a tempting and sensation-rich menu. The eatery offers modernized Mod-Sin food with a hint of grandeur.
Sinpopo Tangs opened its doors after moving from its old location in Katong. The restaurant was able to increase its visibility and serve a larger clientele after moving to Tangs at Tang Plaza. Diners can now enjoy local gourmet cuisine in a convenient and central location right in the middle of the Singapore tourist shopping Mecca at the new restaurant.

Sinpopo, Peranakan on Joo Chiat Road, Katong
I was made redundant and had a load of time on my hands whilst Isearched for new employment, I took the kids to school and had lunch with wifey pretty much every day. It was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. But, of course, it ended and I had to be back to being an employed adult. Whilst researching where to eat, I found a new gem on East Coast. One I have walked past many a time but for some reason never ventured in. But today wifey and I did and I am so glad we did. This is a cracking place, this is Sinpopo in Joo Chiat Road, Katong.
I’m going to steal some text from their menu to describe the style. Suffice it to say though, it’s Peranakan. It’s a converted shophouse (still with original floor tiles in place). It’s minimalistic with basic colours and a mixture of textures like steel menus on the walls. It’s just uber cool. We really liked it and will be back with the kids for sure. 100% I know they will dig this spot too. Sinpopo in Joo Chiat Road, Katong is awesome. A must-try in my humble opinion.
Sinpopo menu for 2022 - crazy good Peranakan food
To their menu, and I quote; “Sinpopo is an ode to Katong and its heritage. Since the 1950’s Katong has been well-known for its unique Peranakan culture and cuisine. Today, Katong is completely different. With a plethora of Western-style cafes and restaurants, large shopping malls, and condominiums, Katong’s heritage and its heritage businesses are being crowded out.
Here's is what Sinpopo Brand has to say about themselves - THE SINPOPO BRAND STORY
I go hard for the recommended pork chop marinated in soy and I am so glad I listened to the recommendation because this was amazing. OK, I think it was a sous vide which you know I hate as a cooking technique but this is a thick pork cutlet so needs to be cooked properly all the way through. Some nice charring to boot or flaming as they call it and served with this insanely good Hainanese curry dip. Holy smoke this was so so good. Loved it. Amy and Jude would be all over this like a rash. We are so coming back.
Sinpopo Menu 2022 update. I cannot believe they have taken this pork cutlet off the menu. Goodness gracious me.
Wifey goes full on for their Cod Fish dish. Baked Cod with Dao Jio Crust They call this Sinpopo’s unique Dao Jio crust, which is served on a bed of tang hoon tossed in their special garlic oil. Yeah, not one morsel was left on the plate by wifey. She said it was an amazing fish dish and she loved it.
OK, OK it looks like a bar of Coal Tar Soap. I hear you, but… This dessert was off the charts good. It is a jelly, yes, but a jelly that falls apart quasi melts in your mouth. I have never experienced anything like it. It’s savoury too. Not over-sweet.
It’s a bonkers good dessert and a must-try. This is Gula Melaka Tiramisu, a time-forgotten dessert. They call it a super soft Gula Melaka agar agar prepared with egg white for an amazingly light mouthfeel. Served in time-honored tradition with coconut sauce. It is just crazy good and it gets a huge recommendation from me. Must try!!!

Let's have a look at the interior of Sinpopo Joo Chiat
I love the interior. Basic colours. Minimal on the walls. Original shop house tiles on the floor. Steel menu boards on the wall too. Mixed up chairs. Yeah, I like the design a lot. It’s uber cool.
Even a private big table dining room at the back. I am now thinking about customer meals or big family fun lunches. It’s a perfect design for it.
