Stuffing your face with international food is the next best thing for S'poreans who can't travel

Imagination is a powerful thing.

Bad news: The end of the year is fast approaching and 2020 is likely to close without the usual vacation plans.

Good news: 2020 is finally going to be over.

Though this year might be a little different, we’ve sussed out a couple of dining options that might still give you that overseas experience. This way, you get to “travel” the world through a variety of cuisines that would (hopefully) make you forget that you’re still in Singapore.

The best part? They’re all conveniently housed under one roof, in Suntec City.

Here are some eateries in Suntec City to consider:

1. Dookki

Dookki offers a 90-minute all-you-can-eat buffet that’ll transport you straight to Korea. Just close your eyes, and savour the flavours of these mouth-watering Korean dishes.

We might not be able to visit famous sites like Gyeongbokgung Palace, but we can comfort ourselves with a Korean hotpot brimming with Tteokbokki and lots of cheese.

Travel to Korea with your loved ones when tucking into some deliciously warm and hearty Tteokbokki.

To top it all off, get your hands on some Korean fried chicken as well, available in irresistible flavours like Snowing Cheese and Yangnyum:

Address: #B1-107, Suntec City East Wing

2. Ichikokudo Ramen 

Get transported to Japan when you dine at Ichikokudo Ramen, which serves Halal-certified ramen. 

The Ichikokudo brand prides itself on creating an “authentic Hokkaido Seafood Ramen experience” for diners.

The eatery’s chefs take up to seven hours each day to whip up its rich, flavourful broth -- the most important ingredient of a good ramen.

As you slurp up your delicious bowl of ramen, close your eyes and imagine you’re at a ramen stall in Hokkaido, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the scenic island.

Ahh, bliss.

Address: #B1-135, Suntec City North Wing

3. Marché Mövenpick

If you’re longing for a holiday in Europe, Marché Mövenpick, with its Swiss rosti, French crepes, meat grilled over applewood and German beer, might be your best bet. 

At Marché Mövenpick, you’ll feel like a tourist exploring a farmer’s market on a Sunday morning, spoiled with an array of scrumptious food choices, freshly squeezed juices and more.

Styled to look like a European market, Marché Mövenpick offers a variety of options for everyone:

(U.P. S$19.90+) during Suntec City’s flash sale happening from 20-29 Nov. Grab them before they are gone!

Address: #01-612, Suntec City East Wing

4. Penang Place

Besides the friendly folks in Penang, we miss the treasure trove of street food the Malaysian state has to offer.

That’s why Penang Place is the to-go eatery for delectable culinary delights prepared by, not one, not two, but seven Penang Chefs to bring out the “authentic” taste of Penang to diners.

Here, tuck into Penang Char Kway Teow, Penang Assam Laksa, Penang Hokkien Mee and more.

We’re already salivating at the pictures of the food. Just look:

The eatery also offers an à la carte buffet option at affordable prices which you can check out here.

Though we can’t travel just yet, Penang Place will certainly make us feel like we’re feasting on our favourite dishes along the streets of Malaysia.

Address: #02-314, Suntec City West Wing

5. Turkish Lezzet House

Be reminded of famous Turkish sites like Hagia Sophia and The Blue Mosque when you feast on authentic Turkish cuisine at Turkish Lezzet House.

At this eatery, you’ll find home-style Turkish kebab, other Turkish cuisines and Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods:
