Best food places at The Woodleigh Mall

I like leading a simple and chill life━this means occasional visits to the grocery store or window shopping at the mall. If you’re anything like me and live in the North-East, here’s some good news: The Woodleigh Mall is now open! To help you out since the mall is so new, we have compiled a list of 11 best eateries at The Woodleigh Mall.

1. San.wich


If you’re grabbing a quick meal that’s wallet-friendly and nutritious, definitely check out San.wich’s freshly made sandos. The super chio bread offered here is baked daily with natural ingredients such as pumpkin, beetroot, and sweet potato, giving them their multi-coloured hues. Get their signature sandwich, the Soy Garlic Chicken Cutlet And Cheese With Egg ($3) or other variations including Snow Crab With Egg ($3.20) and Fish Fillet With Egg ($2.80).

Hold up—they even have sweet sandwiches! Try the Cream Cheese Apple Sandwich ($3.20) or Assorted Fruits Sandwich ($3.20) that features strawberry, melon and kiwi in fresh cream.

Bulgogi Syo, a popular K-BBQ eatery, is founded by the same people behind Seorae.

Another tasty choice is their Duroc Pork Belly ($20.90++) that’s spicy with a good meat-to-fat ratio. All their meats come with savoury seaweed rice.
