To reach Makan’s courtyard, you have to walk through the front door of a residential building and follow a winding path that leads you past a coffee shop and small art gallery before finally arriving. The fact that it’s so hidden away really gives you the impression that you’ve left Roma’s crowded streets behind. But between Singaporean specialties like their crispy pork belly, perfect laksa, simple-yet-delicious poached chicken and rice, and whatever else they recommend from the regularly-changing menu, we imagine a lot more people will be finding their way back here soon. While they only have six tables, it’s one of the most charming places to eat in the neighborhood. And they also have a plant-filled private dining room you can rent for six to 10 people if you’re traveling with a group or just happened to make some friends wherever you were out the night before.
