Paya Lebar is a favourite dining spot for many of us, located not too far east yet, but close enough to the central area that those of us living in the north or west of the country can still pop by for a meal. With the historic and iconic Geylang Serai market nearby, the area itself is important to the local Malay Muslim community so there's bound to be lots of good halal food nearby too!
