3. Paik’s Coffee

Paik's Coffee

Opened by Korean celebrity Chef Baek Jong Won, Paik’s Coffee is no stranger to those who visit Korea often. This popular Korean coffee chain has over 500 branches in Korea and is known for its affordable yet quality coffees. 

You can be sure you’re having the same experience when you dine at its Korean outlet. Everything from the coffee beans to milk are similar to the ones used in Korea. 

Paik's special coffee

Paik’s Original Iced Coffee ($3.50) has a roast that’s slightly lighter than local coffee. It doesn’t pack much bitterness to it and finishes with a pleasant rounded sweetness. It makes for a great cup of coffee for those who might be averse to its overly sour and strong taste. 

Unit number: #02-111
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm


4. Playmade by 丸作

Playmade pearl

It’s all about the pearls at Playmade by 丸作. The pearls at this Taiwanese bubble tea store are made from scratch in-store, using only natural ingredients without any artificial flavouring. The difference is quite noticeable, with tasty pearls that give a much chewier texture.

Large Pink Cactus Smoothie with Pink Cactus Pearls ($7.10) is one of PlayMade’s signature drinks and it’s easy to see why. It uses the eye-catching Taiwanese Penghu pink cactus that’s blended into a purple paste. This refreshing drink has a slight floral taste and a light acidity, making it great to slurp up on a hot day.

Large Matcha Latte with Black Sesame Pearl ($6.90) is an item on the menu that’s sure to excite matcha lovers. You’re free to choose from any of Playmade’s three different pearls, but we went for the earthy black sesame pearls which match nicely with the aromatic matcha. 

Unit number: #01-154
Opening hours: Daily 10:30am to 10pm


5. I Love Yoo!

i love yoo!

With over 60 stores around Malaysia, I Love Yoo! is a familiar name for those who constantly visit our neighbours up North. Serving up youtiao that are freshly made daily, this cosy joint offers a comforting experience that makes it worth a visit at any time of the day. 

i love youu!

Set B ($2.80) gives you a piece of youtiao and their signature soya bean drink. You’ll notice that the youtiao here are fluffier and slightly larger than usual. This makes it great for dipping into the soya bean drink.

The store also uses imported non-GMO soybeans from Canada and frequently changes their palm oil, highlighting their stance on using quality produce. 

Unit number: #B1-135
Opening hours: Daily 9am to 10pm


6. Eng’s Wantan

Eng's Wanton Mee

Tasty local fare is not forgotten at Tiong Bahru Plaza. Eng’s Wantan is a powerhouse in the local wonton mee scene, with over 68 years of history. Known for their fiery chilli sauce, this quick-service store has attracted a loyal following over the years.

Dry Wantan Mee ($4.50) is the star dish here, mixing up smooth and springy egg noodles with flavourful char siew and soft wantons. Each table also comes with a bottle of their signature chilli sauce. First-time visitors are encouraged to squirt only a few drops to get a gauge of its spiciness!

Unit number: #B1-140
Opening hours: Daily 10am to 9pm


7. O Bahn Mi

O banh mi food

It’s not all about Vietnamese sandwiches at O Bahn Mi. This cosy eatery dishes up a tantalising selection of hearty Vietnamese food such as pho and other rice dishes as well. Focusing on Hanoi cuisine, which is known for its light and balanced flavours, the food here is slightly different for those accustomed to its heavier-flavoured Southern Vietnamese counterpart. 

o Banh Mi Pho

Beef Combination Pho Soup ($12.50) is a classic example of Hanoi-style pho, with the use of beef bones that are carefully boiled overnight. The result is an aromatic and robust broth that got us slurping spoonful after spoonful. 

A trio of beef tenderloin, brisket, and meatballs can also be found inside. The tender brisket was particularly tasty, charming us with plenty of bold meaty flavours. 

Unit number: #02-113
Opening hours: Sun-Thur 11:30am to 9pm, Fri-Sat 11:30am to 9:30pm

8. Sakon Thai

 Sakkon Thai Food

Combining flavours from the Isan region and Chiang Mai, Sakon Thai serves up authentic Thai cuisine at wallet-friendly prices. Frequent visitors to Bangkok might find the cuisine here different, with lesser spices used and a focus on fresh herbs instead. 

Special Thai Deep Fried Fish Seabass ($19.80++) features a whole piece of sea bass that’s deep-fried to a crunching crisp. A tangy spicy sauce is then ladled onto it, along with basil leaves, sliced onions, and crunchy long beans. 

The fish’s flesh is flaky and moist, mixing well with the mildly-spiced sauce that packed a whole lot of flavour. The long beans and onions also gave a nice variance of texture to this dish. 

Unit number: #02-135
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm

9. Shi Li Fang

Shi Li Fang is a great option for days when you want to enjoy a comforting dose of hot pot without breaking the bank. Using only MSG-free soup bases, this Taiwanese hot pot chain has gained a popular following among Singaporeans with 14 outlets islandwide. 

Shi Li Fang WAgyu Beef

Each set meal comes with a wide variety of meat and seafood to choose from, along with a vegetable platter, noodles or rice, and a drink. Prices start at $10.90++ for one diner, which comes with free access to the sauce station if you’re visiting on weekdays before 4pm.

We got the Boutique Set Meal For Two ($46.80++) and were treated to a tantalising feast of Japanese Kurobuta pork, wagyu beef, pork tenderloin, and Australian beef. The sliced pieces of wagyu were our favourite, packing in generous streaks of fat that goes nicely with the flavourful soup bases. It’s hard to find another hot pot place that can deliver such great value.

Unit number: #02-112
Opening hours: Daily 10am to 10pm

10. Wok Hey (Coming soon)

Watch trained chefs masterfully handle the wok at Wok Hey. Each dish is prepared upon order, ensuring you get your food piping hot. There aren’t any seats here though, so you’ll have to bring the food somewhere else to enjoy.

To order, you’ll have to take your pick from Egg Fried Rice ($5), Shanghai Fried Rice ($5.50), Fresh Ramen ($6), and Fresh Udon ($6). You’ll then have the option to top up each dish with a wide variety of pre-cooked ingredients such as chicken Chinese sausage, broccoli, and even tobiko at $1 each

Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm
