In the early 19th century, traders used tongkangs – essentially a type of light wooden boat – to carry goods along rivers in Maritime Southeast Asia. In Singapore, the only place you’ll get to see these boats today is at Tongkang Riverboat Dining, which has the country’s last two remaining tongkangs. Located at Clarke Quay, one boat expectedly houses a bar for after-work drinks and parties, but the other stationary boat houses a family-friendly, fine dining restaurant serving Asian and European cuisine, including premium meats and seafood cooked on a grill that uses volcanic Serpentine stones from the European alps. Not only is the food top-notch and the environment unique, Tongkang Riverboat Dining also offers stunning views of the sunset to complete your dining experience.
