As a lifelong Yishunite, Northpoint has always felt like a second home to me. Back in primary school, I would head to the mall everyday after class to shop for snacks or to have a quick lunch with my classmates and friends. Over the years, Northpoint has expanded into Northpoint City, one of the biggest malls in Singapore with two wings and over 1.3 million square feet in space.


Of course, Northpoint City’s size means that it can fit a huge variety of restaurants, cafes and eateries to satisfy all the foodies who forage into the North. Here is a list of 7 places to check out in Northpoint City when you are feeling hungry.

1. POCHA! Korean Street Dining (#B1-181)

Located in the basement of Northpoint City, Pocha! is Singapore’s first K-food street dining concept. You’ll spot it when you look out for its bright red storefront and vibrant neon signage.

Pocha! adopts a communal-like style, with its menu being split into Mains, Rice, Jjigae, Noodles, Sides and Drinks. Classic Korean dishes include Bibimbab (S$8.90), Tteokbokki (S$10.90) and Jjajangmyeon (S$12.90).

Get the Kkochi if you are a fan of skewered meat. Each set consists of three sticks, with options like Pork Belly Zig Zag (S$5.90), Beef Belly Zig Zag (S$6.50) and Chicken Cocktail (S$5.50). Each piece of meat is extremely tender with a good ratio of fat to meat.

Why not opt for some Jjigae, aka, Korean stews? The Sundubu (S$14.90) includes ingredients like minced pork, tofu, clams, zucchini and enoki mushrooms, with a good depth of rich and savoury flavours, and a pleasant pepperiness that lifts up the entire soup.

Looking for a plant-based option to dine at while shopping at Northpoint City? The Kind Bowl offers vegan Vietnamese classics. The quaint space is located in the basement of the mall near one of the entrances by the MRT station, with a small yet enticing menu.

Choose from their mains, priced at S$10.80 each, like The Kind Pho, No Crab Noodle and Crazy Baguette, a vegan bánh mì. Their two sides, the Tropical Salad or Summer Roll, cost S$4.20 each.

I decided to opt for the set meal, which came with a main, a side and a drink. I elected for the Royal Spicy pho and a Summer Roll as my side. The set meal was priced at S$13.80, and I topped up S$1 to upgrade my drink to a Pomegranate Detox.

The Royal Spicy pho was incredibly impressive as it was bursting with lots of umami flavour. It was also topped with a variety of plant-based ingredients, like mushrooms, beancurd and even plant-based mock beef.
