Bukit Pasoh Road
This road was named after the Malay word for earthernware pots used to store rice or water in homes : "Pasoh". It was once made in several workshops around the area. The road connects Neil Road and New Bridge Road along a hill.
The road is known for its concentration of clan associations, and one of the oldest millionaires' clubs in Singapore, moved into Bukit Pasoh in 1927.
Bukit Pasoh was one of the first sites assigned to us in Year 1 of architecture school at the National University of Singapore and I remember going down quite often to do site studies (and having mango sago at the former Sugar Granny Cafe. There was also Magma, German restaurant towards Neil Road that serves apple strudel.
Not too long ago, it was where Candlenut moved to after Neil Road before they settled down at Dempsey. It was a place where friends from overseas and friends will go on special occasions for their Yeye Curry, Mum's Curry and the Durian Soup.
Located on the same road is also 草根書室 (Grassroots Book Room), a pleasant bookshop + cafe the was set up in 1995 set by Cultural Medallion recipient Yang Pway Ngon.
While Bukit Pasoh Road has varying styles of architecture especially the ornate late period shophouses which it is known for. I am drawn to 46 Bukit Pasoh Road at the junction of Teo Hong Road (named after a local carpenter from Lam Ann, Fujian) and Bukit Pasoh Road which currently house the MAI by Dashi Master Marusaya. I used to know it as the OSO Ristorante shophouse. It was the former site of the Leong's Clan General Association (星洲梁氏总会), established in 1949. It has since moved to Keong Saik Road.
In the backdrop are two buildings that has been torn down last year : Pearl Centre (built in 1977, designed by Architectural Design Group) and the more famous Pearl Bank Apartments (built in 1976, designed by Tan Cheng Siong).
