Boy, has Tiong Bahru become a hip foodie’s haven. PoTeaTo’s cute moniker says it all: this place is mostly about potatoes and tea. Enjoy its various tater dishes, including the Sweet Potato Harvest Tartlet ($6.80) dessert with sweet potato mash atop a tart, and Fisherman’s Pie ($13.80) with creamy seafood tucked in a bed of gratinated potato. Wash away the carbs (you wish) with 20 types of teas. Sip a cup of Genmai Cha ($7.20 per pot), brown rice tea blended with popcorn and roasted sesame.
