Check Out: Jewel Changi Best Food

Jewel is the word on every Singapore foodie’s lips, with dozens of buzzy eateries setting up shop in the swanky Changi development. Pip Harry heads east to check out what’s on the menu.

Shake Shack #02-256
Finally making its debut in Singapore, iconic American fast food chain Shake Shack has opened a wildly popular flagship outlet in Jewel. Expect to brave heavy queues if you plan on sampling their upmarket burger fare. On the menu are legendary shakes in flavours like Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter and Pandan; Shack, ‘Sroom and SmokeShack burgers; or other menu items like hotdogs, concrete frozen custards, and melty cheese fries.

Lady M
#02-253
Lady M is the pioneer of the Mille Crêpe cake – layers of thin French style crepes and fluffy cream. Sink your fork through no less than twenty whisper-thin layers of handmade crepes, with delicate flavours like Green Tea, Passionfruit, Coconut, Pistachio, Rose, and more. There are other cakes on offer, but it’s the Mille that people line up for.

Emack & Bolio’s
#B2-234
Hailing from Boston, Emack & Bolio’s is famed for their creative flavours and outrageously adorned cones – choc dipped, or marshmallow with Oreos, Rice Krispies, Fruit Loops, or Fruity Pebbles. Go with a basic like Vanilla Bean Speck or Lemon Sorbet or lick wilder flavours like Chocolate Salted Peanut Butter Cup or Cosmic Crunch. Be warned, prices are steep at $15.50 for two scoops with a fancy, insta-worthy cone.

Burger & Lobster
#05-203
London’s Burger & Lobster has come to Singapore, selling their famous Lobster Roll – chunks of fresh lobster meat, tossed in a Japanese mayo and topped with chives in a signature toasted brioche roll. With fries and salad, it’s a wallet lightening $40, but fans say the roll is totally worth, er, shelling out for. The seafood focused menu also features sambal glazed lobster, burgers and sides.

Rumours Bar & Grill
#05-207
The rumours are true, this Bali favourite has landed at Changi, with building underway for a Sentosa beach club opening later in the year. The focus here is on quality meats, great burgers and bar bites, with fun cocktails and a house beer thrown in. For our money, you’d be better off skipping the Shack Shake queues and coming here for a quality burger, steak or rack of lamb.

Tonito
#02-248
Chef Daniel Chavez, the co-owner and chef of OLA Cocina del Mar and TONO Cevicheria is behind this bright new restaurant. Tonito specialises in comfort Latin American food from Peru, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil. Grab some tacos, quesadillas, Latino sandwiches, soups and salads, or hearty grilled meats and skewers. Pair with an excellent margarita.

Tsuta
#02-242
Slurp award-winning noodles at the world’s first Michelin-starred ramen eatery. Chef Yuki Onishi has perfected the Japanese favourite with his signature Shoya ramen, served in a soy-based broth with a tender slice of char sui pork, bamboo shoot, leek, pureed green olives and white truffle oil. The Miso version is also really good with pan fried corn, bean sprouts, hot sauce, oil and watercress.

Eggs & Things
#03-227/228
This breezy Hawaiian brunch export was originally established in 1974 in Waikiki by founders, Jerry and Jan Fukunaga. This branch specialises in fluffy pancakes and waffles, as well as a raft of eggs benedict options, omelettes, French toast and meat and egg dishes. You can even try Hawaiian delicacies like Spam (canned ham) and healthy poke bowls.

Sama Sama by Tok Tok
#03-225/226
Sama Sama means “you’re welcome” in Indonesian and this is certainly a friendly little restaurant. Savour dishes from around Indonesia, including the whole red snapper grilled with shrimp paste and sweet soy sauce; authentic satays; Soto Ayam spicy chicken soup; house made sambals; and Es Chendol dessert with pandan jelly, jackfruit, coconut milk and palm sugar.
