Discovering Baghdad Street – Food Trail

Tucked away in Kampong Glam, some of you may know Baghdad Street, with its line of traditional shop houses, as a place influenced by Arabic culture. Other than being a landmark with a rich heritage, Baghdad Street also features quirky and unique food eateries that are worth visiting for a weekend breather.

#1 No Name Teh Sarabat Stall

In a hidden corner of Baghdad Street is a milk tea (Sarabat) stall. While it may not seem like anything special, it is actually one of the oldest surviving Teh Sarabat stall, and has been established since 1956. Given that it does not even have a signboard, it has become known to patrons as “No Name Teh Sarabat”. Even now, the stall does not have a sign board but still remain well-known among foodies!

Teh Sarabat stalls like this one serve Teh Tarik, which is brewed Cylon Tea mixed with condensed milk and evaporated milk. Teh Tarik, like the name suggests, is ‘pulled tea’, and it is ‘pulled’ back and forth between two tins to cool the drink down and give it a foamy froth on the surface of the tea.

Other than the cheap, delicious Teh Tarik served there, it is a good place to chill and relax, with its quiet ambience and other tasty Indian snacks that can be bought with the frothy tea.

Another eatery worth visiting along Baghdad Street is a boutique-café named La Marelle.
