Koi Bubble Tea is available at Jewel Changi Airport for walk-in takeaways!

Currently, shops selling predominantly beverages are not supposed to be open due to the Circuit Breaker / Lockdown in Singapore. This means that most bubble tea shops are closed, unless they are located in a hawker centre/coffee shop or located within an outlet that also happens to sell food. So I was most surprised to see a queue at the Signature KOI shop at Jewel Changi Airport after visiting Fairprice Finest.

I went closer to check it out and it’s true, you can buy KOI bubble tea for takeaway yourself, no need to rely on delivery! That because this is Signature KOI, it means that they also sell other food such as cakes, macarons and pastries. Lucky me too, because it seems they only restarted operations today! If you follow me on my Instagram, you would have seen my instastories about it!

Peach Garden Restaurant – Good Chinese food at 60% discount!

You know the Great Singapore Sale that happens every year during June and July, where lots of retail shops offer discounts to reel in shoppers? Well it’s happening now for the F&B sector thanks to the COVID-19 situation. Although the crowds have increased somewhat during the weekend, restaurants are still seeing low footfall on weekdays, in part due to the many work-at-home directives currently ongoing.

If you are not afraid to dine out, you can enjoy some great deals out there. One of the fantastic deals I enjoyed a couple of days ago was 50% discount on any ala-carte food orders at Peach Garden. They have outlets at Changi Airport T2, Chinatown Point, Hotel Miramar, NTU, OCBC Centre, The Metropolis and Thomson Plaza. We decided to go to Changi Airport due to proximity as well as Changi Airport’s own free 3 hour parking promotion for anyone who spends a minimum of $10. This free parking promo at Changi Airport is a real incentive to visit because parking is notoriously expensive at Changi Airport, although I cannot fathom why given they are always doing promos to entice Singaporeans to venture to the far east.

Peach Garden always has some sort of promotion going on, so it would be best to check their website to see what deals you can enjoy. For example, you can order their Signature Stewed Baby Lobster with Ee-fu Noodles for only $1.80++ (U.P $38) or get 30% off for dim sum on weekdays during lunch time. But, if you are able to dine at slightly off-peak timings, you can enjoy even higher discounts of 50% to 60%! This is only if you have the Eatigo App, which is completely free to download. Use my referral code http://refer.eatigo.com/365days-1v9 (365days) to download and you and I both can enjoy a $10 voucher each. Make sure you see that the referral code has been applied, or it means its not successful and you won’t get your voucher.

Colonial Club–A new place to have kaya bread and kopi at Changi Airport + favourite dishes from yesteryear

[Media Invite]

For Singaporeans who love visiting Changi Airport for food, or tourists to Singapore looking for a quick and relatively affordable local meal in a restaurant setting, do check out the recently opened Colonial Club. As the name suggests, this restaurant boasts dishes from Singapore, Penang and Malacca (Hainanese-style western delights, Nyonya dishes and other local favourites) that were once popular during the colonial era, but with a modern dash of chef’s creativity.

I certainly hadn’t heard of Roti Ayam nor Kapitan Chicken Curry nor Inche Cabin Chicken, but you don’t really need to have heard of them to enjoy the dishes at Colonial Club. Most of the dishes are, give and take a little, quite similar to what we already have in Singapore. In fact, if you’re a purist, you may not actually enjoy the dishes here. For example, yellow noodles are used in the Nyonya Laksa, and it also comes with a soft shell crab. These are items not usually associated with laksa. It would be best to come here with an open mind, or imagine the dishes to have different names (instead of associating them with what you are familiar with), for a more enjoyable time.

Scroll down for pictures of what I tried during the media tasting.

Premium Japan Farmers Market opens at Changi Airport – Great place to buy souvenirs before you leave Singapore

Singapore’s first Premium Japanese Farmers’ Market has opened at Changi Airport. Located at the Departure Hall of Terminal 3 (Public Area near to Sky Train / MRT), the shop boasts a range of quality vegetables, fruits, meat products and sake all exclusively brought in from Japan. Think quality beef cuts such as Wagyu, Saga Gyu, Tochigi Wagyu, or grapes such as the Shine Muscat or Kyoho grapes.

There is also a ready-to-eat bento section presented by GO-ZEN, which allows customers to customise their own bento boxes from 25 different dishes. You can order 12,000 different combinations before you end up repeating the same thing again!

You might think it strange that a Japanese grocery store might want to locate itself at Changi Airport, which is not very accessible to those not living in the East. But did you know that there is a FairPrice Finest at Changi Airport and that it is usually quite crowded? So there are already Singaporeans going to Changi Airport to do their marketing. Secondly, this would be a convenient base for tourists who are looking for last minute souvenirs to bring back to their home country! Choice Japanese products would make great souvenirs don’t you think? Anyway, I live in the East and I say YAY to more options for us! Smile

Changi Airport T3 Kopitiam REVAMPED!

The Kopitiam food court at Changi Airport Terminal 3 basement (non-transit area) has reopened after a long renovation and it is a far cry from its previous version! The Kopitiam food court seems much more exciting now. It’s brighter, it seems to have more stalls and there’s just a better buzz to it. The only bad thing is, it’s even more crowded now with all the exciting stalls to try out. Previously you could also probably push your luggage trolley into the food court, forget about that now. as the place is packed with tables catering to the swarming crowd. Btw this is different from the Changi Airport Singapore Food Street located in the transit area of Changi Airport.

I was there at 7.30 pm last Saturday, which was the peak of the peak hour crowd! We had eagle-eyed people breathing down our necks hoping that we’d eat faster and vacate our seats. Queues of 5 people or more at the more popular stalls. Your best bet is to come after 9 pm or before 6pm if you don’t want to have to wait for a seat. Photos below were taken around 9.30pm! Prices are pretty similar to other food courts around Singapore.

Many interesting stalls. Nearly every manner of Singapore’s favourite local dishes are represented at this Kopitiam food court. I was torn between wanting to try the kway chap, the Taiwanese cuisine and the Japanese bento!

Tourists, if you’re looking for a good place to try out all these local dishes in air-conditioned comfort, you don’t even have to leave Changi Airport! It must be a really uniquely Singapore feature that our international airport functions not just as an airport but as a food enclave and mall of sorts too.
