Hidden Gem in Kinex – the Basement Food Hall

Paya Lebar Central precinct is taking shape as a regional business hub. As more businesses move into Paya Lebar, more Food & Beverages establishments are opened to feed the hungry workers. The F&B options in Paya Lebar are now varied and plentiful, especially with the opening of PLQ Mall. Kinex Mall (formerly called One KM) is no longer the new kid on the block and may be suffering the middle child syndrome. However, those looking for affordable good food should not neglect Kinex. The Basement Food Hall in Kinex is a hidden gem. There you can enjoy in air-conditioned comfort reasonably priced congee and bak kut teh as well as Japanese and Korean cuisines which are better than similar offerings in the food courts in the newer malls in Paya Lebar.
