Boon Tat Street | 文达街
Originally called Japan Street before it was renamed in 1946 after the Japanese Occupation of Singapore. The street is named after Ong Boon Tat (王文达), the elder son of Ong Sam Leong (who has a grand tomb in Bukit Brown). Ong Boon Tat was the businessman who owned New World Park in Jalan Besar.
One of the main landmarks along Boon Tat Street is the Nagore Dargah, built between 1828 and 1830. The street is also known as "Ma-cho kiong pi" in Hokkien, meaning "beside the Ma-cho temple", a reference to the Thian Hock Keng Temple.
The illustration is set at the junction between Telok Ayer Street and Boon Tat Street where Sarnies is located, a popular spot for cyclists during the weekends. The current Eden Garden Cafe at 117 Telok Ayer Street was previously 121 Eating House and a coffeeshop. The structure is built on wakaf land, the Nagore Dargah used to stretch across the street in the old days.
