Best Turf City food

Turf City isn’t necessarily the first place that comes to mind when one thinks of where to eat, especially since its location is quite out of the way. This tranquil part of Singapore has got its fair share of things to do, including go-karting and bowling, but it’s also got a number of cafes and restaurants for you to feed your belly after you’ve fed your soul. Here are eight food places in Turf City you should definitely check out the next time you find yourself in the area.

1. Ristorante Da Valentino

This family-run restaurant is furbished like a traditional Italian home so diners can feel as though they’ve been transported to Europe. The cosy space also houses an indoor lounge and alfresco bar for intimate drinking sessions with your pals. On the food front, the restaurant boasts an extensive menu with antipasto, pizza, pasta, and seafood imported from Italy.

We recommend the Calamari Fritti ($21.90++), featuring deep-fried squids served with tomato sauce, as well as the vegetarian Misto di Verdure alla Griglia ($20.90++), which comes with a platter of grilled eggplant, zucchini, capsicum, artichoke, and olives. For mains, get their hearty thin-crust pizzas to share, including the classic Napoletana ($20.90++), or the meaty Carnivore ($25.90++) for a feast of ham, sausage, bacon, and salami.
