When Safra Toa Payoh reopens next weekend after a two-year, $52 million revamp, visitors will find a favourite local pastime - eating - very well catered to.

Singapore's oldest clubhouse for national servicemen and their families has eight food outlets, including Japanese and Korean barbecue restaurants, a steak house and a 24-hour McDonald's.

The previous clubhouse, which was torn down in 2010 for the revamp, had only two outlets.

The eight outlets are also the highest number housed in a Safra clubhouse. Four other clubhouses are in Jurong West, Tampines, Mount Faber and Yishun.
