7 Places to Dine in Chinatown Point

Chinatown Point is a shopping mall located just right above Chinatown MRT Station. With it's prime strategic location, the mall is always crowded with people during lunch and dinner time. Being a regular visitor of Chinatown Point, I decided to do up a post to share some of the options you can consider for dining.

1. Toast Box

Toast Box reminds me of the coffee shops from the 60s and 70s where the typical breakfast was a fragrant cup of Nanyang Coffee accompanied by freshly toasted bread and soft boiled eggs. This was the kind of breakfast that I missed having. Toast Box has brought back those fond memories from good old times.

Other than the signature breakfast, Toast Box also served Asian delight. 
I have curry chicken rice. The mildly spicy coconut-based curry was served with soft chicken and potatoes. I love pouring the thick gravy into my rice, it was flavourful.

2. Delifrance

Delifrance is a French Cafe chain in Singapore. The French bakery has made its mark here with its patisserie. Delifrance serves french-style bakery such as cakes, breads, tarts and sandwiches. Perfect to go  with a aromatic cup of coffee or tea.

I have Seafood D’sire sandwich set for my lunch that comes with freshly brewed tea.
The Croissant was stuffed with seafood mayonnaise, lettuce and tomatoes.

3. Lerk Thai Restaurant

My first time trying out Lerk Thai Restaurant.
Lerk Thai Restaurant offers a bountiful mix of authentic Thai cuisine with level of spiciness adjusted to local palates. The restaurant has a very casual and friendly dining setting.

We decided to try out this restaurant after chancing upon the lunch promotion deal at $8.80+ for a side dish, main course and dessert. For main course, I selected the fried fillet rice. Side dish and dessert are fixed which is spring rolls and tapioca. 

Taste wise, it was pretty normal. It will be good if the set comes with a glass of drink.

4. Han Geun Doo Geun Korean Restaurant

An awesome place to introduce to you guys.

This Korean restaurant  offers value lunch set from $9.90 to $11.90++. The lunch set comes with free flow of tea and side dishes. They have a generous variety of side dishes available ranging from salad, to potato, hot dogs, prawn crackers, soup, tofu and etc.

Here's my selection for the side dishes.
Don't want to take too much because I was afraid that I couldn't finish my set.

My favourite set is gonna be pork hot plate set.
Their hot plate sets are worth trying, the hot plate was really delicious.

I have a full and satisfying meal, indulging in the good food.
I love the food over here. So nice and the portions are pretty generous. A place that I will visit regularly.

5. Nanbantei

Nanbantei is of the longest-standing Japanese yakitori restaurants around and origin of the authentic slice of the yakitori culture. Famous for the yakitori, they offer a wide selection of ala carte skewered meats, seafood and vegetables and bento sets.

Best time to go is during lunch time because Nanbantei Japanese Restaurant offers lunch Set specials / Bento Set specials at only $13.80 onwards.

We ordered the Yakitori Bento at $13.80++.
The bento comes with 5 Yakitori sticks.

The meats were grilled over a special charcoal that has been imported from Japan.
Every stick of bits tasted flavoursome. 

The set also come with a red bean dessert.
Quite price valuable right?

Han's, a place that we are all familiar with. They have over 27 outlets islandwide, serving a range of quality menus at reasonable prices in a comfortable environment. At Han's, they served Hans Set Breakfast, All-Day Set Meals and local favorites.

I have the local delight - chicken fried rice with egg.
The fried rice was really nice and flavourful, I finished every bits of it.

Tamoya Udon is a place where we can taste Authentic Japanese Udon in Singapore. It's udon has won awards many times for its distinctive chewiness and well-loved broth in Japan. With over 20 years of history in the home of udon, Tamoya Udon has expanded to 20 locations worldwide, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

I opt for Kake udon and picked my side dishes of sweet potato and pumpkin. The set cost $9.20. I really love the broth, it was flavoursome. The restaurant is always crowded with people during lunch time, so do come early to ensure seats secured.
