Funan food to try


The Funan Mall at City Hall has finally been fully revamped, ridding any memories of 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 restaurants.

Funan reopens with plenty of food!

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.

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.

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 army-food-turn-street-snack 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 ($3.20). 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

Operating out of a fully equipped food truck, 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: #02-K07

8. Tiong Bahru Bakery


Funan Mall - Tiong Bahru Bakery

Fuel up on Tiong Bahru Bakery’s tasty spread! Just like the one at Raffles City, the outlet at Funan not only serves their famous baked goodies, but also savoury food. Start your morning with a simple butter Croissant ($2.90++), or spring for the sweet and salty PB&B Pancake Burger ($23++), which comes with caramelised bananas, a duo of crunchy bacon and marinated pork belly, and a luscious drizzle of salted caramel.

Gong Yuan Ma La Tang sounds like it is an eatery meant for those who walk on the spicier side. Besides their tongue-numbing Ma La Soup, there are also non-spicy soup bases such as Pork Bone Soup, Tomato Soup, Mushroom Soup, and even a Sesame Dressing Sauce. Take your pick from over 30 ingredients, priced at $2.28 for every 100g.

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 Chashu Ajitama Soba when you’re here. This signature dish is clean tasting yet punches 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.

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, 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 the dark chocolate, opt for the Single Origin Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Platter. Each ice-cream is made from a specific region of cocoa, so you’ll be able to make out each chocolate’s subtle differences.

Fireless Kitchen has got no open flames. They rely mainly on sous vide cooking to prepare their food. It’s no gimmick; this ensures your food will always be at its most optimal doneness.

Check out the 12-Hours Sous Vide BBQ Pork Belly that’s soft and tender—a result of all that low and slow cooking. Even their sides such as the Sous Vide Balsamic Onion Confit are prepared in a water bath to maximise its flavours.
