The next time you’re in Jurong East feeling peckish, check out this Westgate food guide to help you decide what to eat.

1. Wine Connection

If you’re looking for a place to unwind with a bottle of wine and a good meal, swing by Wine Connection. The leading wine shop and wine-themed restaurant has outlets all around Singapore, including Westgate. It’s here you can pore over 300 labels of exclusive wines sourced from around the world.

Pair your choice of vino with eats from their Mediterranean-inspired menu, which include wallet-friendly dishes made with premium ingredients. Must-tries are their limited-time-only Snowfish and Broccolini with Saffron Sauce ($34++), where a tender snowfish fillet is dressed with a creamy sauce, served alongside charred broccolini. If you’re there for something a tad more classic, then try their 250g Black Angus Sirloin ($29++), where a cut of 150 days grain-fed beef with a marble score of 2+ is prepared to your preferred doneness.

Fast-casual restaurant Ajumma’s is where it’s at for wallet-friendly Korean dishes inspired by Korean street food and family restaurant fare. They’ve been around since 2014 and have established quite the name for themselves, with multiple outlets islandwide. Their Westgate outlet often sees long queues at mealtimes, but trust us when we say the payoff for queueing is worth it. 

Ajumma’s has a variety of familiar eats—think bibimbap, Korean stews and the like. A standout dish for us, however, is their Signature Beef Kalbi ($16.90++), where tender strips of beef are steeped in their house marinade before being stir-fried till caramelised in a ripping hot wok. This is served with short-grain rice and four side dishes for a complete meal—it’s kind of like K-BBQ without having to put in the effort! Another must-have at Ajumma’s is their Fluffy Steamed Eggs ($6.90++), where Korean steamed eggs are garnished with a nutty roasted sesame oil for added flavour.

YUN NANS is the largest Yunnanese restaurant chain from China, with over 200 outlets across the country. They expanded to Singapore a few years ago and have brought classic Yunnanese dishes to Singaporeans, to much fanfare. This restaurant is a great place for larger family dinners or special occasions—just make sure you call ahead to book. 

One popular item is their Steam Pot Chicken Soup ($29.90++). The soup is prepared via a unique pressure-steaming technique that is specific to Yunnan’s cooking culture, so much so that this method and soup is now certified a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of the region. The soup is steamed for three hours in a handmade claypot, and gets its rich flavour from the pressurised process. Not a single drop of water is used to get the clear, delicate broth—it’s all to do with the cooking method and the quality of ingredients used. Accompany the hearty broth with an order of their Grilled Seabass with Lemongrass ($29.90++). This popular dish sees seabass marinated in a secret blend of six spices, then grilled over charcoal to imbue the sweet flesh with a distinct smokiness.
