Gastroparks, little enclaves of food vendors occupying a hodgepodge of shipping containers and shacks, have been popping up in cities like Tokyo, Sydney and New York over the past few years. It was inevitable that one would emerge here in our town. Timbre+, the 24000 sq ft gastropark at One-north is not quite the bohemian food hall of your dreams—it looks a little too tidy for a gastropark concept, with most of the vendors located neatly beneath a rooftop of shipping containers and airstream trailers—but its strength lies in its variety. There are 14 restaurants, 21 hawker stalls and two incubator units provided at nominal rates (for first-time chefs or F&B entrepreneurs). You’ll find gems here like chef Damian D’Silva’s D’s Joint serving his signature nasi lemak; Kelly Wong from Wong Kee noodles making plates of Wan Ton Mee with unusual noodles like spinach and tomato; and The World is Flat by Tanuki Raw offering pizzas with funky crusts like sea salt & brown butter pan-style. Timbre’s resident musicians The Common People, Sweatshop Jam and Supersonic will perform in the evenings from Wednesday to Saturday.
