Westgate Food Guide: 20 Places To Eat, Including Durian Souffle Pancakes And Halal Ramen

31st August 2022

Westgate food guide


Jurong East is home to four major malls: JEM, JCube, IMM, and Westgate. The latter may not be the largest, coming in at just 410,000 sq ft, but the seven-story lifestyle shopping centre has plenty of things to do, see, and of course, eat. The next time you’re in Jurong East feeling peckish, check out this Westgate food guide to help you decide what to eat.


1. Shake Shack Westgate

This famed New York City fast food chain has taken Singapore by storm, not least with its Shake Shack Westgate opening. This is their first and only outlet in the West thus far too. 

The eatery is cosy and almost mellow in ambience, with forest green and light wood furnishings towered by high ceilings. There’s a semi-open kitchen where diners can get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of all the Shack’s signatures being prepped, from their signature ShackBurger ($9.70), made with Angus beef patties and potato buns, and their latest Dark Meat Hot Chicken ($10.80) with a deep-fried, spicy slab of chicken thigh as its star. The outlet also has an exclusive Concrete, the Peelin’ Cherry-fic (from $7.50), a remix of the banana split.

Paradise Group - beauty in the pot flatlay

Get your hotpot fix at Beauty In The Pot, which spotlights Taiwanese-style soup bases, including their famed Beauty Collagen and Spicy broths. The restaurant goes the extra mile to prepare their broths from scratch, curating the spices and Chinese herbs that go into the mix. Accompanying the broth is a selection of fresh, premium ingredients, from beef slices to pork, and seafood. Don’t skip their handmade fish paste dishes, from tofu to seafood balls. 

Another thing worth noting is the fact that this restaurant is decked out in shades of salmon and pastel pink, and is also equipped with a kids’ play area for the little ones.

3. Miam Miam French Japanese Cafe Kitchen 


miam miam - flatlay

There are a few cafes in Westgate, but Miam Miam French Japanese Cafe Kitchen offers something unique: yoshoku fare that sees influences from French, Italian, and Japanese cuisines. 

We’re fans of the indulgent Tender Striploin Foie Gras Donburi with Butter Truffle Paste ($33.90++), where tender seared striploin is served next to a slab of foie gras, with truffle butter to finish. For a dish that’s more wallet-friendly, go for the Souffle de Nuage ($17.90++), a baked rice dish topped with a cloud-like omelette. Miam Miam is also famed for their souffle pancakes and French souffles, most priced under $15.

Taiwanese toast and milk tea joint Fong Sheng Hao opened in Westgate in 2021, so Westies can now get their hands on the eatery’s popular breakfast toasts. The Pork Floss Egg ($6.80) is great for fans who miss getting their hands on this breakfast classic in Taiwan. Else, the Pork Egg And Cheese ($6.60) is another best-seller, where gooey cheese, creamy omelette, and a slice of pork cutlet are sandwiched between lightly-toasted milk bread. Fond Sheng Hao also serves up rice bowls, if you prefer a more substantial meal!

May Restaurants 2019 - Yun Nans

For Chinese food that’s great for family dinners or special occasions, head over to Yunnans. The restaurant is an offshoot of the world’s largest Yunan restaurant chain, Yun Hai Yao. Here, the spotlight shines on Yunnan cuisine, especially from the highlands. It’s all regional Chinese fare here, most of which are rarely seen at other Chinese restaurant chains in Singapore.

Yunnans is well-known for their steamed pot dishes. One of their must-tries is the Steam Pot Chicken Soup ($30.95), where a special breed of black chicken is slow-cooked in handmade Jianshui pots for over four hours, with just salt and pepper for seasoning. It is the cooking vessel and process that imparts a rich, comforting chicken flavour to the broth. Truffle fans, try the Crispy Horfun with Truffle Prawn Broth ($19.50++), packed with seafood and a slurpable, fragrant sauce.

A popular choice is the Nutella-inspired Hazelnut Chocolate ($14.50), where jiggly souffle pancakes are served with a hazelnut chocolate ganache, and feuilletine for crunch. They’ve recently launched croissant-waffles, AKA croffles, on the menu too! Note that the pancakes require at least 15 minutes to cook, so some waiting time is necessary.
