Make SAFRA Choa Chu Kang Your New Foodie Haunt In The North-West

There are so many dining choices, you'll just have to visit again.

Deciding on what to eat for lunch can be quite a conundrum. It shouldn’t be repetitive, it shouldn’t be overly expensive, it shouldn’t be (too) unhealthy, it shouldn’t be too heavy, but it should be delicious! And you don’t have all day to decide. 

At SAFRA Choa Chu Kang, that conundrum becomes a happy problem. From a NS-themed cafe serving modern bistro fare to a multicultural food court, the clubhouse is the ultimate hub for any foodie! There is everything for everyone, whether you’re a health nut, an indulgent diner or the budget-conscious patron.

Here are just a few lunchtime food spots for you to consider! 

Food Paradise: Regional Favourites For Lunch

This is definitely not your ordinary food court. With offerings from xiao long bao and Japanese rice bowls to Asian-inspired fusion food, the eatery illustrates the best of what our neighbouring countries have to offer. 

Syed Cafe Exclusive

You’ll be greeted immediately by a whiff of the aromatics coming from halal-certified Syed Cafe Exclusive upon entering Food Paradise during the lunch hour. And you’ll be spoiled for choice! Its menu is huge, featuring dishes from Thailand, India and even Europe – almost a mini-melting pot of international cuisines.

Its hearty plate of piping-hot Briyani is the perfect example! Unlike traditional variants, Syed Cafe’s Briyani comes with a tangy hint that is so prevalent in Thai cuisine, wafts of roasted Indian spices and a balanced mix of sweet, sour, and savoury flavours. 

Ishiro Fusion Bowl

Then you have affordable and healthy Japanese rice bowls that are light, refreshing and yet, nourishing enough to let you seize the day!

Ishiro Fusion Bowl’s Salmon Mentaiko Bowl is a budget-friendly lunch option that is worth every cent! Portions are sufficiently generous and its salmon slices just melt in your mouth like butter. It isn’t the most extravagant fusion bowl. On the contrary, it is Ishiro Fusion Bowl’s simplicity that makes its food so hearty. 

Ding Tele

Offering affordable and delicious Shanghainese delicacies, Ding Tele invites you to try its myriad of Dim Sum specials that are perfect for lunch or tea-time gatherings.

You must try its Pan-Fried Crispy Pork Soup buns which are literally bursting with flavour. Pair that with a bowl of its best-selling Shanghai Noodles with Pork and Spicy sauce and you got yourself a good time!

All In Noodles and Drinks

Branding itself as a fusion of Singaporean and Malaysian flavours, this delightful food stall prides itself on its double boiled soups and noodle sets. True to its name, it goes all in during its food prep, double boiling a great quantity of pork bones for hours to attain a nourishing and uplifting bowl of soup. 

If you’re looking for something lighter, consider its Seafood Soup paired with a bowl of noodles for lunch – you’ll be good to go for the rest of the day!

Paradise Now

Located just inside the Integrated Entertainment Hub, Paradise Now has an intimate and cosy dining setting. Best described as a bar serving restaurant quality dishes, this multi-dimensional establishment has a myriad of options to elevate your dining and social experience. From dartboards and private karaoke rooms to live music performances, Paradise Now is perfect if you’re looking for a place to unwind for lunch. 

You really can’t go wrong with Paradise Now’s House Chicken Chop. Topped with its signature brown sauce, this comfort dish is food that rejuvenates the soul. And if you want to sink your teeth into a juicy burger, Paradise Now can fix you right up with its house speciality Beef Burger, which is served with shoestring fries. Do not overlook its Sambal Cheese Fries – a magical blend of spicy savouriness and creamy goodness!
