Suntec City food
Suntec City, Singapore’s first megamall, was a weekend haunt for many back in the day, with throngs lining up for the emblematic Fountain of Wealth, megamart Carrefour, and conventions such as IT and Travel Fairs.
With other newer megamalls in the scene now, Suntec City is no longer as crowded as it once was, but one thing still remains: its wealth of dining options. To help you make up your mind if you’re dining there, here’s our round-up of 15 Suntec City food places to have your next meal at.
1. Just Dough
Just Dough isn’t your average kopi and toast breakfast spot. This little cafe next to the Fountain of Wealth makes IG-worth steamed buns with a variety of sweet and savoury fillings. All the colourings used in these buns are natural, and the fillings are made with less sugar and oil, and without preservatives.
Prices for each of these handmade steamed buns start from just $1.20, which makes them perfect for a snack at any time of the day! If you prefer to dine in, there are also meal sets (from $7.90) featuring omelettes, salads and French toast.
