Paddy Hills offers a contemporary menu with specialty coffee and hand brew bar. I first visited this place at lunchtime on a workday and we enjoyed the food. The presentation was delightful which made the dining experience a wonderful respite from the workday.

Needless to say, I enjoyed it so much we returned for dinner when P and Donna came to pick me up from work one day.

Disappointingly, we found the dinner menu not to be as extensive as the lunch menu. I enjoyed lunch more than dinner there.

It seems the menu has changed again when I last visited, assuming the menu on Paddy Hills’ facebook page is updated. See the menu and prices here.

If you do visit, remember to take a photo at the side of the shophouse where Paddy Hills is located in. Just for fun :)

2. Otoko Ramen – Warm, comfort food

Caveat: I haven’t eaten at many ramen places in Singapore, but so far, Otoko Ramen is my favourite. ;)

They have only a few choices of soup base to choose from, with the option to add sides at additional cost. Each table also comes with a bowl of free hard boil eggs.

My ramen after adding buttered corn and wakame, and one free hard boiled egg. :P

Colleague’s ramen with a spicy soup base and said bowl of free hard boiled eggs :P

Food has stayed consistent with my return visit. I can see myself going again and again. Hot soupy ramen is too great a comfort food on rainy days for me not to go. :P

Portions are big for me, so we usually ask for less noodles. #justsaying

Donna feels very hot, mom. Let’s go in!

We visited on a weekday evening and pretty much had the place to ourselves.

4. Colbar – a “Colonial Bar” that’s a jungle hideout

We ate simple fare that was more expensive than average… for simple fare. But this is a nice rustic coffeeshop hideaway to just sit and chill. See menu and prices here.

I’ve actually not been to Handle Bar at Gillman Barracks, but I’ve been to the one near Sembawang Park. You can read about Handle Bar near Sembawang Park here. This outlet is no longer there, since it has moved to Gillman Barracks.

The Handle Bar at Gillman Barracks continues to allow dogs at their outdoor seating.

We love handle bar, they will bring a bowl of ice cold water bowl for the dogs even without asking… Love their ‘slap yo’ mama pork chop’ and their ‘cocaine wings’!!!! Delish! 😊

At just 3-minutes drive away from HortPark, both Handle Bar and The Tea Party Cafe are the nearest eating places around the HortPark.

@walkwithsushi: MasonsRevolution Coffee, Portico Host and DW Workshop are also dog-friendly eating places near HortPark! 😄🐶

So now, you will have no worries where to eat with dog if you go hiking along the Henderson Waves – Southern Ridges – HortPark – Kent Ridge Park trail. Have a great adventure and come back to tell me about it!
