The 5 Most Popular Eateries in Singapore Shopping Malls

The standard of living in Singapore is considered high but we are fortunate to be able to find affordable food from hawker centres all around our little island. While it generally cost more to dine inside a shopping mall compared to a hawker centre, many eateries have come up with budget-friendly menus which allow both students and professionals to have a decent meal. Here are five eateries that you can explore in our local shopping malls if you want to dine in comfort yet not put a hole in your wallet –


1) EAT

A one-stop eatery offering a range of local traditional fares, EAT is one of the best food outlets to patronise if having value-for-money meals is your daily goal. For just S$5, you can enjoy a bowl of noodles with a cup of hot coffee or tea. The prices of the dishes are similar to what you can find at the local hawker centres, in order for their meals to appeal to the mass market.
