Eats for under $5 in Orchard? Why, yes! Other than eateries tucked away in small streets and the older shopping malls, food courts make great options for meals under $5 (plus a variety of options to please everyone.
Koufu Foodcourt at Orchard Cineleisure is one of my go to places for fish soup noodles at “Mr & Mrs Fish Soup” (further inside the food court). Generous portion with lots of noodles for just $4.80!
Check out the Fishball Noodle stall, I think they have the cheapest noodles in the entire foodcourt (and possibly all the public foodcourts in Somerset?). $3.80 for a bowl of fishball mee tai mak or bak chor mee... where to find in town??
Yong Tau Foo starting from $4.20. Good healthy meal after your workout at the gyms at the next building.
Japanese set from $5, chicken rice set from $4.50!
Bibimbap & kimchi soup set for $4.50? Wow 😮 😮 😮
There is also Pontian Wanton Noodles opposite the foodcourt starting from $4. Not bad! (portions are much smaller though).
Disclaimer : I have not tried many of the above stalls yet, just sharing the “price list” in town 🙂 Enjoy!
