22 Funan Mall Food Places To Visit Including Steak From $18.90+, Yuzu Ramen And More

16th February 2021

Funan Mall food to try


The Funan Mall at City Hall is no longer the old, dingy, IT mall it used to be. Besides boasting high-tech features and countless independent and local boutiques, it also features dining spots ranging from grab-and-go kiosks to lovely family-friendly restaurants. For those looking for food near the City Hall MRT Station, National Museum of Singapore or ROM, here are 22 places at Funan Mall to try out.


1. Afuri Ramen


Funan Mall - Afuri Ramen

Ever since its opening, Afuri Ramen has seen a steady flow of fans streaming in for their Yuzu Shio Ramen ($15.90++). This clear-broth ramen is tinged with a light and refreshing citrus twist, pairing deliciously well with their Hokkaido whole-grain ramen noodles. Opt for the Yuzu Tsukemen ($15.90++) if you prefer stronger flavours.

Unit number: #B1-29
Opening hours: Daily 11:30am to 10pm

2. BIZEN Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse


Funan Mall - BIZEN Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse

Those looking for a hearty meal can head to BIZEN Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse. Don’t be thrown off by its fancy name as they serve well-marbled steaks with two sides from only $18.90+. Get the best bang for your buck with the lower-priced adventure cuts such as their Flat Iron Steak ($23.90+ for 150g), or treat yourself to a good Sirloin Prime Cut ($30.90+ for 150g/$44.90 for 220g).

The menu here is surprisingly extensive, offering other non-beef items such as a massive Chicken Katsu ($11.90+) and Grilled Iberico Pork Chop ($23.90+) as well.

Get your hands on up to six freshly shucked oysters at only $2++ each, with an order of alcoholic drink, from 5pm and 8pm on weekdays and 3pm to 6pm on weekends. Happy Hour for alcoholic drinks happens from 12pm to 9pm daily.

Grab some acai bowls or a midday drink at Sin Gan Tian. Indulge in their Fruity Acai Bowl ($11.80), which comes topped with coconut shavings, fresh fruits, and more. Otherwise, they have popular beverages like Red Bean Purple Rice Yogurt ($5.90), which will fill you up as you stroll around the mall.

5. Butter Bean


Butter Bean Sandwiches

Butter Bean, run by the BreadTalk group, is the cooler sibling to Toast Box. While they essentially serve coffee, toasts, and light bites, the menu here has a trendier feel, with Korean-style sandwiches and thick toasts available. Try the PB&J ($2.80), a zhnged-up version of your usual peanut butter and jelly toast served on thick milk bread.

For something savoury, we especially enjoyed their C.F.C Crispy Fried Chicken ($4.60), served with either housemade curry or black pepper sauce. Finish the meal with the BBrûlée Kopi Latte ($3.20), a creme brulee spin on kopi peng.

6. A Gan Guo Kui


Funan Mall - A Gan Guo Kui

Hailing from China, A Gan Guo Kui will lure you in with its perpetual long queue and aromatic flatbreads. Toasted to a crisp with their charcoal-fired clay ovens, they are stuffed with either sweet or savoury fillings, giving every bite an explosion of flavours. Don’t be turned off by the name of the Sichuan Pickled Fish Guo Kui ($3.30). I challenge anyone to take more than 10 minutes to finish it.

Unit number: #B2-K05
Opening hours: Daily 10am to 10pm


7. Milksha


Funan Mall - Milksha

Milksha’s outlet at Funan Mall is their second outlet in Singapore. Their big, chewy honey pearls have given the saturated bubble tea scene here a much-needed jolt. Cooked and freeze-dried in Taiwan before being air-flown to Singapore, these QQ pearls blew us away when paired with their Brown Sugar Milk ($4.60) for an additional $1.

The Fresh Taro Milk ($5.60) is also a notable mention. Naturally sweet from mashed taro harvested from Dajia, Taiwan, the drink requires 0% added sugar.

Unit number: #B1-25
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm

8. Tiong Bahru Bakery 


Tiong Bahru Bakery Diner croissants

Coffees, teas, and juices are also available there too.

9. Gong Yuan Ma La Tang

Gong Yuan Ma La Tang sounds like an eatery meant for those who walk on the spicier side of life.

Take your pick from over 30 ingredients, priced at $2.28 for every 100g.

They have a selection of quality house cold brew teas such as their Peachy ($8), a peach brew, and their Flavour of Summer ($8), a concoct of apples, melon and mangosteen. The cold brew tea menu changes daily.

11. Tsuta


Funan Food - Tsuta

Tsuta is the world’s first Michelin-starred ramen restaurant. They use premium ingredients such as truffles to accentuate the umami flavours of their shio and shoyu soup bases.

Opt for their Premium Chashu Shoyu Ramen ($20++) when you’re here. This signature dish is clean tasting yet has a strong oomph of umami and earthiness from the black truffle purée. You can also expect meaty chashu slices, which are leaner than usual but still tender.

NOKA is perched on the rooftop of Funan Mall, ornate with vibrant flowers, vegetables, and herbs that are all used in the dishes served here. These star on plates like their Charcoal Calamari (15++) and the Unagi Shira Yaki ($38++).

No Japanese restaurant is complete without raw fish, and you can get a platter of Sashimi Moriawase (28++) here as well. They even serve Japanese-styled desserts such as the Yuzu Creme Brulee (15++).

Def’ check out their Steak & Chirashi Don ($21.90++), where 200g of juicy Australian grass-fed sirloin is served with a colourful bowl of chirashi don that’s brimming with diced sashimi. There are also more pocket-friendly options such as Fish & Chips ($9.90++) and Baby Back Ribs ($16.90++) if beef is not your chosen protein.

16. The Dark Gallery


Funan Food - The Dark gallery

The Dark Gallery serves a beautiful selection of dark chocolate treats. For those averse to dark chocolate, this spot will change your mind. Their Frozen S’mores ($9), for instance, features a fluffy marshmallow exterior enveloping a dark chocolate ice-cream interior. The dessert is then flambéed to a beautiful caramel.

To get a better taste of their offerings, opt for The Ice Cream Soiree ($19). You get to choose three ice creams, each from a specific region of cocoa, so you’ll be able to make out the subtle differences in each scoop.
