Turkish corner

Singapore is ever changing. Familiar streets which I have visited frequently in the past have changed due to the popularity of certain businesses or the congregation of new immigrants who have set up their own unique enclaves.

The lorongs of Geylangs have now turned into a real Chinatown with Chinese from China setting up their own little eateries. Unlike Singaporean Chinese food which originated mainly from southern China, these new places feature food from the provinces of Northern China. Meanwhile, the little streets around Beach Road have sprouted a number of Lebanese and Turkish food joints. I haven't had the time to check out these restaurants but I do love the decor and new vibe that they give to the area. Took some pictures of the unusual wall paintings and lovely deco tiles surrounding these restaurants.
