Biopolis is like a town unto itself. There are convenience stores, a laundry shop, even a koi pond and of course many places to eat. To help you decide on what to eat at Biopolis, here is a compilation of the Biopolis food outlets and restaurants that we have tried and some that we have not. Biopolis is one component of the One-North zone. The other neighbouring components are Fusionpolis and Mediapolis. Next to Biopolis is a commercial development called Metropolis.
Biopolis in One North is not a place that comes to mind when we think of places to eat. But there are many eating places located here to serve the hordes of scientists and other office personnel housed in the impressive buildings.
The only problem is that many of them target only the working staff here and are closed in the evenings and on weekends. But fortunately, enough of them stay open for us non-Biopolis residents to explore and sample during the off-peak hours.
Bodacious Bar & Bistro is another restaurant that we frequent. It is a casual restaurant that serves interesting food and drinks. Read our review here.
As its name suggests, Tete-a-Tete Cafe is a place to gather for a light meal or to chit-chat. They have the best coffee and desserts in the Biopolis region. Read our review here.
For something complete different, try Bigmama Korean Restaurant. It has a weird name but serves quite traditional Korean food like bibimbap. Read our review here.
The Lawn is a self-service restaurant that is ideally suited for office workers who have little time and want a healthy meal. Their specialities are salads and grilled meats Read our review here.
Raj Restaurant serves Indian vegetarian cuisine. Read our review here.
Hoopla Coffee and Kitchen is like one of those hip cafes in town (eg Tiong Bahru) that serves good coffee, all day breakfast and other cafe type of food. The good thing is that you can find it at your doorstep if you are living in the Buona Vista area. It is not technically part of Biopolis. It is situated within the nearby Mediapolis zone.

Each of them have their own f & b outlets to serve their tenants. Stay tuned as we continue to explore this area and we will update the list from time to time.
