Orchard Road, Singapore


Orchard Road is a good place to sample not just Singaporean food but also food from around the world. That said, if you're pinching pennies, prices here tend to be slightly inflated by Singaporean standards. However, prices are kept in check by the brimming numbers of competition operating in the area. Almost every shopping mall has its own food court but for gourmet snacking, it's hard to beat the collection of shops and stands at Takashimaya's basement.

Food stalls in Orchard Road

Asian Food Mall
Basement of Lucky Plaza, 
304 Orchard Rd.
One of the cheapest food courts in the area. Prices are about 30% cheaper than the food courts at nearby malls while still maintaining excellent Singapore standards. Stalls serve local and Asian fare.

Ayam Penyet Ria
Lucky Plaza, 304 Orchard Rd #04-25/26.
Inexpensive yet popular Indonesian eatery specialising in ayam penyet or "smashed chicken", breaded, deep-fried and flattened, served with the fiery chili sambal (paste). For a less spicy treat, sample their excellent rawon (beef soup).

Food Republic
Wisma Atria, 435 Orchard Road 4F.
Food court done up as a series of hawker carts and decorated with various nostalgic nick-knacks. The food is a notch above average with a perennial queues and so are the crowds.

Takashimaya, 391 Orchard Rd B2F.
Mid-priced hip Hong Kong-style tea cafe offering both Chinese classics like rickshaw noodles as well as modern fare like baked rice with cheese and their infamous durian fried rice.

Soup Restaurant
Paragon, 290 Orchard Rd #B1-44.
Mid-priced and offers not only excellent Chinese-style soup but also plenty of traditional Singaporean Chinese fare, including their trademark samsui chicken (slow-boiled chicken eaten wrapped in lettuce with garlic sauce). Eat a Chinatown Heritage Course (SGD50 for two) for lunch and take the leftovers home for dinner.

Big O
Wheelock Place, 501 Orchard Road #02-04/05.
Casual Western-style eatery best known for having some of the best desserts in town, including some great New York-style cheesecakes and the pungent durian cake.

Crystal Jade Palace
Ngee Ann City, 391 Orchard Rd #04-19.
The flagship restaurant of the chain, serving authentic Cantonese food. Fairly expensive and expect to pay SGD25 for lunch and SGD50 for dinner. The dim sum during lunch time is worth trying as well as the roasted meat and wonton noodles. Reservations are recommended as queues can be as long as an hour.

Meritus Mandarin, 333 Orchard Rd.
Possibly Singapore's most famous chicken rice but at around SGD30 per plate, it is certainly the most expensive. However, portions are very generous and you get to dine in air-conditioned comfort, on red-lacquered furniture and panoramic views over Orchard. Often full on weekends, so call ahead.
