If you’ve seen some of my earlier posts on food then you know that my boyfriend and I own a catering truck with my brother. Since embarking on this endeavor I’ve started to pay close attention to food trucks. So I was beyond excited to learn that Singapore has it’s first food truck row so to speak and I had to run right out to try it. It’s called Timbre+ and its tag line is “Where music feeds the soul, and food feeds the body.”
The space is very welcoming with a combination of food trucks and container food stalls. In the middle of the venue is a large stage where live music can be found almost every night. Timbre+ is open air but is also completely covered overhead, which is so important in the constant and often unpredictable rain shower that is Singapore. The evening I went it was raining and from the outside it looked as though it was closed. I was happy to learn that there were plenty of open trucks and stalls still open.
Now for the important part, the food. I have to say I was disappointed. As a vegetarian not every restaurant is exciting for me, and this was no exception. There was an India vendor with vegetarian options, but the food was so bad I literally had to return it. I settled for a salad elsewhere that was good, but not worth a trip to the other side of the island. I did have some amazing sweet potato fries with truffle mayo aioli though, and a very large selection of beers and cider to choose from. My boyfriend and the friends that joined us are meat eaters and seemed to really enjoy what they had.
So what’s the verdict? It was a unique experience to try, particularly here in Singapore where food trucks are not the norm. Is there better food elsewhere in Singapore? Absolutely. But none with this particular vibe. I suggest you give it a try and see if you can find that one dish that feeds your soul and your body.
