10 Bars and Cafés you Must Visit at Holland Village

Holland Village is a food lover’s paradise. From familiar restaurants to simple fast food to fancy cafés and happening bars, it is not difficult to find all your favourite foods in just one location. At night, its main street transforms into an entertainment district with teeming nightlife, as people casually occupy the road for a drink or two.

With so much happening at Holland Village, you have to be there to see it for yourself. Here are 10 bars and cafes that you must visit at Holland Village.

1. Fat Boy’s


It’s time to sink your teeth into Fat Boy’s chunky and juicy burgers that come with a generous serving of thick-cut fries. The menu offers a mouth-watering selection of burgers with eccentric names, suiting the style of the restaurant.

We recommend the Elvis ($11) which consists of a bacon stuffed pork patty with bananas and peanut butter, and the Monster Mash ($16) featuring crunchy fried chicken and wasabi mash potato.

Also, complete your meal with the perfect drink to wash down the juicy patties: a creamy milkshake from their large assortment of flavours.
