Thank all for your help. Much appreciated.
The Holiday Inn Express is right next to the Indigo. Right opposite is the Joo Chiat neighbourhood with lots of eateries. If you walk to Koon Seng Road (ask reception for directions), you will find a row of shophouses decorated Peranakan style. http://www.visitsingapore.com/see-do...ochiat-katong/

There is a really nice ice creamery opposite the hotel (along East Coast Road) called Birds of Paradise. Very good ice cream.
