They serve a mix of simple local favourites as well as some localised renditions of Western food. Perfect for reminiscing about the carefree days, all while being surrounded by a calm serenity away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the Colbar Cafe delivers everything you need to unwind and relax.
Colbar Eating House, as it was originally called was opened in 1953. Located in the Portsdown area which was a British army barracks site in the 1900s, the eating house once served as a canteen for the huge military complex. Colbar stands for “colonial bar” and even today they still make a traditional mess-hall classics, such as; Gammon, Egg & Chips! 😋#colonial #gammon #architecturephotography #wessexvillagesquare #singapore #singaporefood #expatlife
