The Clementi Mall Food Guide: 12 Food Places Including Halal Korean BBQ, Cheap Army Stew And More

The Clementi Mall Food Guide

Situated in Clementi with bus services and the Clementi MRT Station just a stone’s throw away, The Clementi Mall is a six-storey shopping mall with all the suburban works: supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, cafes, and ATMs. Those who live nearby will be glad to know that they even have a post office and a library. While there are a lot of options at the famous food centres nearby, I recommend those with kids or large groups to dine at the air-conned restaurants at The Clementi Mall. 

What to eat at The Clementi Mall

Shopping here can be quite limited, especially when it comes to beauty and fashion. However, Clementi Mall makes up for it with its great variety of restaurants, buffets, and kiosks with cuisines ranging from Korean and Japanese to Vietnamese and Western. Read on to find out what you can eat at The Clementi Mall!

1. Ootoya Japanese Restaurant
