JCube food guide
There are a few malls that come to mind when you think of Jurong: JEM, West Gate, IMM, and JCube. Of these, the first two are the most conveniently linked to Jurong East MRT Station, while JCube is across from the station, where Jurong Entertainment Centre used to be. Today, it houses Singapore’s first Olympic-size ice rink and the first IMAX theatre in the suburbs, and a plethora of eating spots. It can be difficult to decide on what to eat when there are so many, so to help you out, here are 10 JCube food places to choose from when you are there!
1. The White Kitchen by Tokyo Latte

Head down to The White Kitchen by Tokyo Latte for Japanese-European fare. Their customisable Signature Ramen (from $9.50) offers Japanese noodles, a soup-based flavour, and main ingredients of your choice, with options such as seafood, and chicken. Their most popular soup base is said to be Tomato, but they also have Kimchi and Tom Yum. It’s all prepared with a broth that’s boiled daily for at least eight hours.
For more classic Western fare, there’s Old English Fish and Chips, for which you can choose between Halibut ($13.50) or Snapper ($11.50). Meat lovers can go for Char-Grilled Prime Sirloin ($16.80), prepared with Australian grass-fed beef. Get two sides and a sauce with each order, otherwise Grilled Prawns & Sirloin Steak ($19.80) gets you both surf and turf! Then, end off your meal with their Homemade Japanese Dark Cherry Tiramisu ($7.80).
Unit number: #02-03
Opening hours: Daily 11:30am to 10pm

2. Dookki Singapore
If you didn’t know, Dookki is Korean for “two meals”━and Dookki Singapore is thus named because of the two meals you get to enjoy in one seating here. You start first with their famed tteokbokki buffet, priced at $12.80++ for children between 110cm and 130cm in height, and $20.80++ for adults. Then, at the end of your tteokbokki hotpot, throw in some rice and make your very own kimchi fried rice for your second meal-in-a-meal.
Cheese lovers should definitely add on Snow Cheese ($7.80++) and a Double Cheese Ring ($10.80++) to complete the experience, where the latter gives you oozy melted cheese to dip all your tteok in.

Oh My Mango is the perfect place to visit if you are craving Thai desserts. With close to 40 items on their menu, the pink-themed cafe has come a long way since its initial days, when it primarily served mango-based treats. Now, they’ve got desserts ranging from Shibuya toast to bingsu.
For something classic, try their Mango Bingsu ($13.90), and if you are looking for something more savoury, opt for their Tom Yum Goong Toast ($6.90). You can also try their wide selection of unique cold beverages such as their Mango Sticky Rice Frappe ($5.90) and Choco Mango Latte ($5.90).

These are served in large, heated platters, and are heaped with seafood, meat, vegetables, and the all-essential instant noodles. Priced from $27.90, choose from Red Tom Yum Soup, Thai Chilli, Lime & Garlic Soup, Thai Beef Soup, or Clear Tom Yum Vegetarian Soup.

To beat the heat, go for waffles and ice cream at MADLYGOOD. Located right next to the skating rink, the cafe has a menu of waffles, crepe, pancakes, French toast, croffles and more. We had the Buttered-up Peanut Butter ($12.50) on our visit here, where peanut butter waffles are topped with crushed peanuts, peanut butter, and a house-made roasted peanut syrup. You can also top up $3 for a scoop of That’s Peanut gelato.
Otherwise, they have Mochi Waffles ($14.50), Speculoos Cookie French Toast ($18.50), Nutella Croffles ($13.50), and even Matcha Crepe ($11.50), which comes with fresh strawberries, house-made matcha sauce, and maple syrup.

7. Devil Chicken

Even if you’ve never been to the night markets in Taiwan, you would know that their XXL fried chicken chops are legendary. Then, there’s Devil Chicken, one of the most famous fried chicken brands direct from Taiwan. In fact, the queue for their fried chicken was four hours long when they had a stall at the Shihlin Night Market pop-up here.
Their signature Devil Chicken ($8.50) comes in different levels of spice: Mild, Normal, and Fiery. Otherwise, there’s the Original, which is not spicy. If you prefer bite-sized snacks, you can opt for their Popcorn Chicken ($7.50) or Devil Nuggets ($7.50), both of which are prepared with boneless chicken thigh. Pair them with Sweet Potato Balls ($5.50) and deep-fried Button Mushroom ($6.50)!

8. Big Fish Small Fish
What started out as a fish and chips hangout in a shipping container has now spawned four locations across Singapore, with the JCube outlet being one of them. Even if you’re not dining at the OG Big Fish Small Fish eatery, the mall-based outposts have also been designed to recreate that container-dining experience.
You can’t go to a fish and chips specialist and not have Fish & Chips (from $14.90++), with different fish options being priced differently. The most expensive option is Snow Cod ($28.80++), while Sea Bass is more affordable at $18.30++. Whichever you order, it comes with two sides, which include Sauteed Garlic Mushrooms, Turkey Bacon Mac and Cheese, and more.
For something other than your regular chips, Big Fish Small Fish has Fish & Crisps (from $12.90++). These are available in the same fish options, accompanied by lemon garlic butter sauce and fresh-fried potato chips! There are also grilled fish or meat, and rice options: Old School Grilled Black Pepper Chicken ($15.80++) and Grilled Snow Cod with Pilaf Rice ($28.80++).

Another sweets stop to check out is Kazo, a Taiwanese bakery that’s most popular for their cream puffs, though they’ve also got cheese tarts and other sugary treats. Their signature crispy cream puffs come in flavours such as Matcha ($1.80), Chocolate ($1.80), Hokkaido Cream ($1.80), and even Golden Lava. Those who love durian can try their Durian Cheese Tart ($3.50) or Durian Cream Puff ($2.80), both made with Mao Shan Wang.

If you’ve been to Astons but never knew their story, here it is: the chain was founded in 2005 by an ex-restaurant chef named Aston, who wanted to bring quality Western food to Singaporeans at affordable prices. At their JCube branch, which is an ASTONS Specialities outlet, the menu has three main sections—Legendary Steaks, Grillworks Chicken, and Fisherman’s Pride.
There are typical Western favourites such as Hickory BBQ Chicken ($11.90), Chargrilled Salmon Fillet ($22.90) and Prime Sirloin ($19.90). All the mains include two side dishes of choice, with options such as Baked Potato, Mac and Cheese, and Coleslaw. They also offer burgers and pasta, for example the massive iEat Super Burger ($16.90), and their Beef Bolognese ($11.90).
