TOP restaurants and food places in Fusionopolis and One North, Singapore

Galaxis Fusionopolis One North food - 1

One-North, Fusionopolis and the other zones in this area that stretches from the Buona Vista MRT to the One-North MRT stations have always been confusing to us until we started exploring the place and finding out what to eat there. So no worries, today we have The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) List of restaurants and food places in Fusionopolis and One North. We will also try our best to describe the area to you.

First we start by defining what exactly is One-North. It is neither one nor in the north. It is made up of many areas in a huge 200 hectare zone overseen by JTC. According to the JTC One North website: “one-north is designed to host a cluster of world-class research facilities and business park space, all built to support the growth of Biomedical Sciences, Infocomm Technology (ICT), Media, Physical Sciences and Engineering.”     

One North is made up of separate components – such as Fusionopolis, Rochester Park, Mediapolis, Wessex and Nepal Hill,  Biopolis and JTC Launchpad.  Mixed up among all these areas are two other developments:  Metropolis and Star Vista. These are private projects and are not technically part of One-North or looked after by JTC, but we will include them in here nonetheless because there are places to eat.
