Best Orchard Central food to enjoy in town


Orchard Central is one of the prime shopping and dining hubs in town, along with other contenders such as Paragon, Takashimaya, and 313 Somerset right next door. The sprawling vertical mall, which is the tallest mall in Singapore, has tons of different cuisine from Western BBQ ribs at Morganfield’s, to the bustling Japanese food court, Hokkaido Marche, down in the basement. Here’s our guide to dining at Orchard Central for any occasion!


1. Genki Sushi


Orchard Central Food Genki Sushi

Genki Sushi sets the stage as one of Orchard Central’s ever-crowded eateries. It’s a favourite of the younger crowd for its high-quality and affordable sushi. The sushi chain hopped onto the mentaiko trend with their smoky and velvety Seared Salmon Mentaiko Sushi ($2.80++) a couple of years back, and the dish has become a mainstay on the menu. If you don’t feel like getting plates of sushi, you can also get a Chirashi Don for $9.80++. This filling rice bowl comes with crab sticks, two pieces each of salmon, swordfish, and tuna, amaebi sweet shrimp, tamago, and a scoop of ikura.

2. Nantsuttei


Orchard Central Food Nantsuttei

Nantsuttei is known for their Nantsuttei Ramen ($12.90++), which comes with a creamy, thick, and fragrant tonkotsu broth that’s flavoured with copious amounts of black ma-yu garlic oil. It’s then topped with several pieces of soft chashu that melts in the mouth. The overwhelmingly spicy Dragon Ramen ($14.90++) hits you with a burst of heat right from the very first sip. It uses a house-made spicy paste that comprises minced pork, chilli paste, chillies, sake, and cayenne pepper.

15. Walking on Sunshine


Walking on Sunshine

Walking On Sunshine is rather unique in what it offers. The Korean concept store is a two-in-one cafe and beauty salon, with neither aspect being a mere gimmick. The signature Luke’s Favourite ($25++) is a hot favourite here; a salad bowl topped with salmon, avocado, poached egg and drizzled with red rice sesame dressing. And once you’re done with your meal, you can spend a lazy afternoon lounging around and enjoying the salon’s beauty services, including haircuts, hair colouring, nail polishing, and foot care.

Eating at Dancing Crab is a sloppy and messy affair, but the sheer amount of food gives you a good reason to dig in without regard for table manners. The food is served in either a bag or a bucket, and then dumped onto the table for you to enjoy. Their signature combo is the Live Crab Combo With World Famous Signature Cajun Sauce ($112++), meant for a big group to share. It consists of a live crab, prawns, clams, a heap of grilled corn with their tangy cajun BBQ sauce, and chicken sausage. The Live Lobster Roll with Spicy Cajun Fries ($56.80++) is packed with chunks of mayo-slathered lobster claw and tail that are delightfully juicy and fresh. The pair of lobster rolls come in buttery brioche buns, and is a good way to round out your meal.

Start your meal with their Salmon Avocado Salad ($25++), and move on to their Grainfed Ribeye ($28++) or Grainfed Angus Striploin ($26++). You can choose two sides along with a sauce for your steak; the former includes Mac & Cheese, Baked Jacket Potato, and Butter Glazed Broccoli. For their sauces, there’s the Red Wine, Peppercorn, Mushroom Cream, and Chimichurri. And of course, complete your meal with a pint of their craft beer for $10++
