Every visit I’ve made to Singapore in the last 1.5 years has usually involved visa runs for Indonesia. We would meet our agent at Wheelock Place, and across from there, a huge shopping mall called Ion was under construction (above). However, on this visit, it was finally open for business… and it is a rather impressive structure on the outside. Shopping malls take a lot longer to build in Singapore than in Indonesia because in Singapore they actually have safety standards and building codes.

… sometimes they even have kooky public art out the front.  As usual, I was hunting for food, so I headed down to the centre’s new food court.  And wow… it’s pretty impressive. It comes with chandeliers!!

The food court was totally packed, and offers most of Singapore’s favourite hawker dishes. I decided to go for a delicious prawn laksa.  The broth was so creamy, it was divine.

Just when I thought the food court couldn’t get any better, I noticed that it also had dim sum/yum cha carts!  I was too full for any steamed buns or dumplings though.  The dishes were all reasonably priced, no more expensive than other mall food courts.

Ion is located smack bang on top of Orchard MRT station on Orchard Road.

    The Hokkien prawn mee and the oyster omelette there are pretty good too.

    Rob- Unemployment does wonders for everything… except my bank account 🙂 Not only do I regularly blog… you should see how radiant my skin is now. Shame this can’t continue for much longer!

    Ronny- Thanks for the tips! I was tempted by the oyster omelette when I walked past that busy stall… smelled really good 🙂

    I must try the laksa. So far I’ve had the nasi padang and it was pretty good. Love your blog! The photos are amazing.
