After 3 years at this location, we have closed the business to explore new social opportunities. Our last day of operations was 17 August 2018.
It has been our pleasure and privilege to be a part of the Tanglin community.
We especially appreciate the loyalty and friendship of our regular patrons, without whom our social enterprise would not have been sustainable.
We are very grateful for all the help we have received from our past and present staff members and beneficiaries. We would like to commend them for their sincere and conscientious dedication and performance.
Thank you for being a part of this social journey with us!
Team New Rasa Singapura
New Rasa Singapura celebrates hawker favourites and lends a helping hand to fellow Singaporeans.
“We have a heart for local food and people. A restaurant-bar concept allows us to be all-inclusive for individuals with disabilities - we employ and empower them with the necessary skills for them to be integrated back to the society”, said Josephine Ng, the founder.
Named after iconic food center Rasa Singapura from the 1990s, New Rasa Singapura is a social enterprise with a mission to celebrate and preserve SIngapore's local food heritage while providing meaningful employment for individuals with disabilities.
The restaurant-bar serves up authentic local delights such as Laksa, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Black Pepper Char Kway Teow, Soup Kambing (Mutton Soup) and Crispy Carrot Cake - all with a twist.
Matched with an impressive selection of alcoholic beverages in a beer garden setting, the 90-seat restaurant-bar is also a choice venue for corporate and team bonding events - making it a unique venue with a heart.
"The first mouthful soothed this cynic- the soup kambing was not so gamey nor reeking heavily of masala, like at the usual Indian hawkers, and the kway teow was soft and slurpy smooth. The blast of pepper atop the stack of little lamb ribs was a revelation. Then came the Black Pepper Cha Kway Teow, all the usual 'wok hei' sweet savoury tones were intact, but it came with a blast of black pepper fried into, not just cracked over the dish. I held up a “9” score card for this act."
"If I were to recommend, it would be the Rasa Chicken Wings, gloriously juicy with the slightly har cheong flavor; Dry Laksa in which the gravy is well-absorbed by the thick vermicelli, and Beef Rendang Pasta where the two merges quite brilliantly."
