All-Day Dining At SAFRA Jurong

Where to grab a bite if you’re at SAFRA Jurong.

By Mandy Lim Beitler      2 July 2021

Spending a day out with the family at SAFRA Jurong? Whether you’re working out at EnergyOne Gym, having a leisurely swim, or letting the young ones play at Kidz Amaze Indoor Playground, here are our suggestions on pit stops where you can fuel up to keep you going throughout the day.

Breakfast At Springleaf Prata Place

Start the day on a high with a hearty breakfast for champions at Springleaf Prata Place. With the flip masters tossing up every variety of roti prata you can dream up from 8am daily, there’s extra reason to get out of bed early. From the ubiquitous Egg Prata and Mee Goreng to Masala Thosai and Roti John, there are endless permutations in every category, drinks included, for the whole family.

For unique dishes you can’t get at your neighbourhood mamak stall, try the innovative creations from the Ultimate Hawkerfest series. Kids especially love 2013’s Murtaburger that’s layered with juicy lamb patties and gooey mozzarella, while the Magic Meatless Murtabak from 2019 is a delicious plant-based rendition with lentils, mushrooms, curry leaves, vegan mayo, and Korean sauce.

Besides the 10% dine-in discount for SAFRA members and 5% for 11B holders, SAFRA members also enjoy 1-for-1 prata deals till 4 July. Click here for more information.

Lunch At Jack’s Place

Remember when candlelit family meals on green-and-white checkered tablecloths in a dimly lit restaurant seemed like such a fancy treat when you were little? As midday approaches, revisit the nostalgia of Jack’s Place, Singapore’s go-to for steaks since 1966. From the interior decor to sizzling steaks on those quaint cow-shaped hotplates, it’s nice to see that some things don’t change!

You can’t go wrong when ordering the daily set lunches, which come with garlic bread, soup of the day, choice of main course, drink and dessert. After all, you’ll only have the tried-and-tested favourite main courses to choose from. Highlights include N.Z. Striploin Steak and Slipper Lobster, Fish and Chips, and Grilled Rosemary Cajun Chicken. And it may be a steakhouse, but Grandma’s Braised Beef Stew and Beef Bee Hoon are also must-tries, thanks to its Hainanese heritage.

SAFRA members enjoy 10% dine-in discount.

Dinner At Rasa Istimewa

Time for dinner but can’t quite decide what you’re in the mood for? Head to Rasa Istimewa for a wide array of halal-certified Asian cuisine from barbecued seafood to zichar classics. Individual bento sets or one-dish meals like Pineapple Fried Rice and Stir-fried Tomato Maggi Noodles are also available, while the little ones can pick from a dedicated kids menu. And with desserts running the gamut from Chendol with Durian to Salted Caramel Ice Cream, there’s certainly something for every generation here.

Hot off the grill and boasting just the right amount of aromatic char, the BBQ Seafood Combo, which stars stingray, sotong, and lala, as well as BBQ Satay and Otah Otah are finger-licking good. More hot favourites include Chilli Crab, Cereal Butter Prawns, Curry Fish Head, and Prawn Paste Chicken. Last but not least, according to insiders, the new Mala Hotpot is the latest crowd-pleaser on the menu.

SAFRA members enjoy 10% discount on dine-in and takeaways; senior citizens get a 3% dine-in discount from 12 noon to 3.30pm on Mondays to Thursdays (except public holidays).
