10 Best Food Places Near Beauty World MRT Station
beauty world station food guide
The recent launch of Downtown Line 2 got us really excited and for one stop in particular -- Beauty World MRT Station. In its vicinity of Upper Bukit Timah Road, the streets are littered with good eats. There's that food centre on the highest level of Beauty World Centre (the one with McDonald's), Cheong Chin Nam Road where Westies flock to for supper, Lorong Kilat, Chun Tin Road and further up at Bukit Timah Plaza. Given this added convenience, there's now no excuse for you not to check out this little food haven!

Beauty World Centre

1. Hambaobao

Situated at the rooftop of Beauty World Centre, Hambaobao serves unique and incredibly delicious burgers like That Dory Fish ($5, pictured), Spiced Pulled Pork ($5) in a hawker setting. Do be prepared to wait for a little bit, as the burgers are made on the spot once you place your order.

2. Joo Mak Korean Restaurant

If you are a fan of Korean cuisine, Joo Mak Korean Restaurant is just the place. Besides Korean BBQ, try the Jajangmyeon ($12) – black bean sauce noodles and Army Stew ($30), not forgetting Crispy Fried Chicken ($30), which Joo Mak is well-known for. Crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside, their fried chicken is worth going out of your way for.

There's something about handmade noodles that begets comfort. At Top 1 Home Made noodle, you can choose from seven different types of noodles but the top favourite here is definitely Mee Hoon Kway ($3.50). Have it in soup or dry where it is tossed in black and chilli sauce and accompanied by juicy meatballs and anchovies. Another dish we recommend is the Spicy Mala Ban Mian with Big Prawn ($6). A world of caution: Not for those who can't take the heat! Beauty World Centre, 144 Upper Bukit Timah Road #04-44, Singapore 588177 (Image: OpenSnap user wenxi)

G7 Sinma Live Bull Frog Claypot Porridge serves one of the best frog porridges in Singapore - we sing praises for the gravy, which goes very well with the porridge. The price varies – $8 for 1 frog, $16 for 3 frogs, $22 for 5 frogs and porridge and $30 for 7 frogs and porridge – but we recommend getting the $22 set for 2 pax. For those with more adventurous taste buds, you wouldn't want to miss this place out. 5 Cheong Chin Nam Road, Singapore 599730 (Image: OpenRice user rachelays)
