Beauty World and Hillview: The allure of late-night dining and nature trails

Beauty World’s strongest draw is its stretch of eateries along Cheong Chin Nam Road. Home to an array of cuisines, the area attracts its largest crowd in the evenings. The buzz tapers off late into the night, but some shops open well into the wee hours to serve those still awake.
Among the noteworthy eats, Al-Azhar caters to those looking for halal Indian food, with a selection of prata, curry, tandoori sets, roti john, murtabak and briyani meals. It also offers a fun selection of Thai food, as well as fried noodles and mutton soup. Local beverages such as teh tarik, teh halia and lassi are also served.
