This is a great place for lunch when you visiting Singapore. Lots of variety of food, very cheap and you get full. You will als meet nice people there. However, it can be very crowded on saturday and sundays.

Hi Svein,

Thank you for your review on Food Opera. Yes, we can get busy at times. The crowd and hustle and bustle of Food Opera does kind of mirror the street food scene in the old days in Singapore in some ways, sans the hot weather. We are happy to know that you have enjoyed your dining experience. Look forward to having you with us again at your next visit.

Dried prawn noodle always my first choice when I came over SG. This foodcourt version isn’t that bad, just can’t beat the Beach Rd and Old Airport Rd.

The fried hokkien prawn noodle is damn good mix with sambal and lime kasthuri. The prawn is big too.

The Food Opera provides a wide range of choices of Asian food. It is easily accessible via the MRT. The tables are cleaned constantly. The food is freshly prepared (hawker-style). The prices reflect the more upscale location, but are still reasonable value.

Some of the stalls have been famous for several generations (eg. Lam’s abalone noodles, HwaHeng beef noodles, ThyeHong carrot cake), best in class (eg. Ah Chew Yong Tau Foo) or just very good (Indonesian chicken BBQ, HK roast meat). There’s diversity too, you even find Korean or Bak Kut Teh. But, strangely enough, no Indian, Japanese or Vietnamese (there was a good Viêt when the mall first opened, but it disappeared). Those who crave phở or bánh mì thịt can walk to Nam Nam in the basement of Wheelock Place next door. Quite clean, with lots of roaming cleaners, and a sink for guests to use.
