Food Opera @ ION Orchard Singapore

After a couple of days in Singapore you'll notice that in addition to traditional hawker centres, the whole place is populated with food courts.  And not the kind you find in the UK, where the the height of culinary excellence is a Wagamama.   The quality of the food served in food courts in Singapore is phenomenal. 

One of the newest and most upmarket food courts to open in Singapore is Food Opera.  Located in the basement of ION Orchard, the food court comprises 22 hawker style stalls in a stylish and designer setting.  It's almost like eating in Ian Schrager hotel, complete with chandeliers and ghost chairs.

It's a foodie delight, and although it's not expensive you should expect to pay double that you pay in a local hawker centre.

One of my fave dim sum dishes - Chee Cheong Fun, rice cannelloni filled with shrimp and topped with spring onions, shallots and soy sauce
What else I loved about Food Opera is that it also shares the floor with a food court of international eateries including a Japanese takoyaki stall, a Vietnamese Banh Mi shop and Pakistani curry stall.

Tsukiji Gindanco takoyaki balls - yummy!
Verdict:  It's chiconomics - good food served in a stylish designer setting at purse friendly prices.  It's a great places to stop after a busy day shopping on Orchard Road.

Prices: Starters start at $2.90 (£1.40) and main courses $7 (around £3.37)
