With the Marina Bay area being developed into the next prime business district, there have been a slew of new food options. Asia Square Tower, a new-ish office building with retail and F&B outlets, has just launched a novel-concept food court. Instead of the usual food court stalls, they've managed to convince big-ish-name restaurants to set up stall fronts here. The loft-like food court, located on the second floor, boasts an airy, roof-garden feel, and notable names like Imperial Treasure Windows on HK, western franchises like Canadian burger chain Triple O's and Astons Specialties, Asian favourites like Toastbox and Manna Korea, and for those looking to eat light and healthy, Fresh+ Salads and The Soup Spoon.
Because of its proximity to the office, I'll definitely be back in this food court.
I've always liked the food at Imperial Treasure, so I was delighted to find that they've got a stall serving cha chan teng cuisine here.
With the North-East monsoon season upon us, a piping hot bowl of soupy Wanton Noodles ($8) was just the fix to comfort your insides on a cold wet day. Springy egg noodles, bouncy fresh wantons floating in a densely flavoured, albeit MSG-laced, prawn broth was all it took to warm out tummies.
The Soya Chicken and Roasted Duck Rice ($9.50) with moist flavourful meats and a drizzling of delicate soya sauce over plain white rice, was simple, fast and substantial.
The Wanton Soup ($8) was standard fare of Imperial Treasure, 6 good-sized wantons in silky soft skin.
I loved the decadently indulgent Roasted Pork ($7). Crisp skin, a nice sliver of fat and salty meat.
The Barbecued Pork ($7) was done well, sliced thickly, tender and sweetish, with a generous helping of watery soya sauce slathered over it.
