Changi Jewel is opening on April 17.
This was mentioned by Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health, Lam Pin Min during the Ministry of Transport's Committee of Supply debate on March 7.
Aside from better aviation facilities that will improve your travel experience such has early check-in facilities, integrated ticketing and baggage service fly-cruise and fly-coach transfers, the new jewel (pun intended) of Changi Airport will feature a wide array of dining attractions for visitors.
Here they are:
1. Burger & Lobster
Expect its signature lobster rolls and whole lobsters. The rolls consist of a toasted brioche roll, chunks of lobster meat, and served alongside its signature lemon and garlic butter sauce, fries and salad.
This outlet will be Burger & Lobster's third outlet in Asia.
It will be located at Canopy Park, Jewel’s topmost floor, where diners can enjoy a good view of the 40-metre high Rain Vortex — also slated to be the world’s tallest indoor waterfall
2. Shake Shack
Shake Shack has over 170 outlets in America and overseas, including branches in Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong.
The chain is known for its 100 per cent Angus beef patties, soft and feathery potato flour buns, tasty hot dogs made with beef sausages, and its milkshakes, of course.
Perennial favourites include the Shack Stack and items on its not-so-secret secret menu.
Fans of a certain vintage will remember the famous A&W root beer float, coney dog, and curly fries. Perhaps a nostalgic trip to Jewel is in order for those who want to relive those memories.
This Swiss artisanal chocolatier is famous for their handmade chocolates made in Switzerland and flown to Singapore. It has consistently ranked among the top chocolate brands in Switzerland.
5. Pink Fish
This Norwegian casual seafood restaurant is sometimes known as Norway's answer to McDonald's, albeit a more sustainable version.
This chain is famous for serving salmon burgers, wraps, and poke bowls with sustainably farmed fish.
This below is Pink Fish's Vietnamese-inspired Asian Burger which comes with salmon, spicy soya and mango salsa.
6. Violet Oon
This will be Oon's largest restaurant to date and will feature local delicacies like dry laksa. Some of the Peranakan dishes offered at her restaurants include Ngoh Hiang, Kuay Pie Tee, and Tumeric Chicken Wings.
7. Five Spice Foodcourt
The food court, which is operated by Food Junction, will feature over 10 local brands.
This includes long-time names like Ka-Soh and Fu Lin Yong Tofu, which have more than 20 years of culinary heritage.
