Jewel Changi Airport Cafes (Full list)

Have you been to see Jewel Changi Airport yet? I must say this building is pretty amazing and has literally been the talk of the town and on everyone’s Instagram feeds in the past few days. Don’t worry if you didn’t manage to get the preview tickets, because Jewel opens officially to the public on 17 April 2019. Also, don’t be too afraid of the crowd. Yes, it is crowded but Jewel is SO HUMONGOUS, it’s easy to find spaces where there isn’t a crowd.

There is still space to find a seat at most cafes and restaurants because firstly there are so many, more than 280 F&B outlets, and secondly, most people are there to just take in the sights and of course get that perfect shot of the mesmerising HSBC Rain Vortex. Don’t you call it a fountain or even a waterfall because those words do not accurately describe its scale and magnificence. This is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40m so give it its due respect and call it the Rain Vortex.

The only place where I thought it was truly crowded without an empty seat in sight was the lower two basement floors housing most of the casual eateries. But there are many other F&B’s dotted around Jewel’s upper levels, cafes and casual eateries included, so if you want to skip the queue, you know where to go.

Here’s a list of all the cafes available at Jewel Changi Airport. Glad to report there are quite a few new to Singapore names.

New and unique dim sum dishes only for a short time at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel Wan Hao Restaurant

[Media Invite]

Hands up those who looooove dim sum???? I did a poll recently and most people voted that dim sum is good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I certainly could eat dim sum at any time of the day. But the thing is, most places these days stick to the tried and tested dim sum dishes, so it is quite exciting to be able to find something new when it comes to dim sum.

For a short time only, April to be exact, Wan Hao Restaurant at Marriot Hotel will be offering up some unique dim sum creations that are worth checking out.

Hei Kim Cafe – Under the radar cafe in the East?

Hei Kim Cafe has been open for over a year now but based on my Instagram feeds, I hardly see people going there. Which is a bit of a pity because there are precious few cafes in the East of Singapore. (Don’t mention those cafes in Lavender because those are almost city centre already). I’m talking about East East. Singapore cafes in the East, please email me, I will try to give a shout out to you, because friendly neighbour here wants the East to have more cafes!

Hei Kim Cafe (2)

Anyway, Hei Kim Cafe scores on a few points. For one, their coffee-based drinks are pretty affordable at $4 for a cappucino, flat white, latte etc. Very few cafes in Singapore offer this pricing. The cafe is also quite spacious, the tables are not squeezed next to each other, of course this would change if the cafe was booming. Some parts of the cafe are a bit more industrial looking, some parts more retro, so this might attract the Instagram crowd. Lots of bright sunlight coming in, which is always a plus point for me. And who doesn’t love a window countertop shot. There is a piano there, which they allowed us to use, of course again may not be possible if the cafe is crowded.

And what about the food? Some hits and misses in terms of pricing and taste. If you order smartly, you might be able to keep your dish at $12 nett. Scroll down further for the food review and more pictures!

Revamped Raintree Cove at East Coast Park is now open! (Remember the old Burger King?)

Do you still remember the area where the old Burger King and Long Beach Seafood Restaurant was? That place, also known as Raintree Cove has recently gotten a complete makeover and is now entirely transformed! No more buildings at Raintree Cove, now it is a quiet little haven for people to stroll about, gather, sit on swings or simply chill under the stars! If you’re wondering where to eat at East Coast Park now, click on the link.

Revamped Raintree Cove at East Coast Park (5)

Don’t mind Papa’s expression. Perhaps the swing is going too fast for him??

We had a lot of fun playing at the swings area. Thanks to this swing net thingy or what you might call it, the 3 of us even managed to get a family shot together! The adults might even have more fun here. I saw a mother of 4 children screaming and laughing hysterically as her husband tried to swing her higher and higher!

5 must try eateries at Eastpoint Mall

With the recent opening of the 3rd  Malaysia Boleh! at Eastpoint Mall, the mall is fast becoming a foodie destination in itself. Eastpoint Mall, being a suburban mall located in a small and peaceful residential estate, has never been on the radar of most people unless you are living in Simei or the surrounding areas. It’s more of a utilitarian mall, with people visiting just to get a simple meal, groceries at NTUC, wares from Daiso, school and stationery supplies from Popular or attending enrichment classes. Up until recently, there have no big name fashion stores or big name anything to draw in the crowds. But therein lies the delight in visiting Eastpoint Mall. I visit Eastpoint Mall several times a week precisely because it is peaceful and not teeming with people. I can get a seat at any eatery or cafe I want, pretty much any time of the day.

Well things are changing at Eastpoint Mall. In the last one year, a number of big name eateries have opened at Eastpoint Mall, the biggest being of course the super popular Malaysia Boleh! that opened a couple of weeks back. Let’s hope that these big names draw even more big name and popular eateries to open at Eastpoint Mall. Businesses might worry about a lack of footfall, but just look at how crowded Malaysia Boleh! is and you’ll know that if you can provide the goods, people will flock to you.

Anyway, here are my 5 eateries / restaurant recommendations at Eastpoint Mall that you should really check out.
