There are many good restaurants with takeaway menus in the city centre. Those of us living far away from the prime shopping belt and CBD have fewer options. Fortunately, there are still quite a few nice restaurants for takeouts outside the city. So if you are out in the West and want an alternative to your instant noodles, consider these affordable restaurants for takeaways in Jurong.
Many nice F&B outlets that were once only located in prime Orchard Road shopping malls could now be found in Jurong East. Beauty in a Pot, Coffeesmith, Ippudo Ramen and Lady M are examples of popular eateries that are in Westgate. Honolulu Cafe, which attracted very long queues when it opened in The Centrepoint, is another one. We had breakfast at Honolulu Café in Westgate recently. It was almost like actually having breakfast in a cha chaan teng in Hong Kong.
Crystal Jade Kitchen Westgate is probably the Chinese restaurant in the Jurong East area that we have frequented the most. Directly linked by walkways to the Jurong East MRT station and also the Ng Teng Fong Hospital, it is often the Chinese restaurant that comes to mind when we have things to attend to in the area. For a restaurant in the suburbs, it looks rather grand and we have seen birthdays and business lunches being hosted there. Here is a compilation of some of the things we ate at Crystal Jade Westgate during a couple of recent lunches.
Faced with the wide range of food options near the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, we settled for lunch at Kogane Yama, a simple and nice Japanese restaurant in Jem shopping mall. It is located on the ground floor and is easily accessible from the elevated walkway from the NTFGH and from Jurong East MRT station and Westgate next door.
Paul Westgate is the Jurong East outlet of Paul bakery and cafe. This ground floor cafe one of the better looking eateries at the Westgate mall and has a distinct French cafe look. They seem to have made some changes to their decor and replaced their cushy chairs with more practical wooden ones, but the place has remained largely the same. On weekdays, they make it more enticing to dine there with a dinner promotion of a 40% discount on selected dishes and a $15.80 all day set menu.
