Even as a certified west-sider, I was among those who were sorely disappointed over news of ORTO Yishun’s closing. After all, it was a great supper spot (as long as someone was driving, of course) for those late night cravings. You can understand my excitement, then, when I heard about ORTO West Coast! It’s not exactly very far-west, either — it’s located just opposite Haw Par Villa MRT station.
Prawning enthusiasts, you can rest assured knowing that the folks behind Prawning at ORTO have relocated to West Coast with the same opening hours — 24 hours daily, so you can head down any time you like. The popular restaurant SGMY has also shifted over, so you’ll find similar homely seafood dishes.
Don’t feel like eating tze char? Head over to Mo’s Grill & Bar for Asian-inspired dishes — think nachos, spicy korean chicken bites with gochujang mayo, grilled pork belly skewers, and so much more.
If the name RedDot BrewHouse rings a bell, it’s probably because you’ve seen them around at Dempsey. Fans of their award-winning beer, you’ll be delighted to know that they’ve opened an outlet at ORTO as well — sounds like it’s time to sit back and enjoy a main or two while listening to the live band.
While BKK Bistro & Bar won’t be coming along (RIP 80 cent boat noodles), you can still enjoy Thai cuisine from Kinn Derm. Whether you’re craving for mookata, hotpot or more, this restaurant’s got you covered!
For desserts, head over to After Hours Gelato for some thick toast and unique ice cream flavours like Soya Bean Milk ice cream.
It’s not all just prawning and eating, either. Patrons can sing karaoke at eateries like Volta West, play billiards at West Coast Cue Sports, and even engage in Playstation games at Ignite Spaces — there’s defo no shortage of things to do.
The place is relatively new at the time of writing, so there are a few restaurants and facilities that have yet to open (hint: frog porridge, mermaid-themed bar & more!) — we’ll update this article with more information when ORTO officially opens.
Perhaps it’s time to make a trip down to the west, after all!
