Although we do stick our neck out once in a while, simple comfort takeaway food is what we go back to most of the time.

Aperia was completed only in 2014. Less then 5 years later, the mall at Aperia had undergone a major revamp.

The new F&B line up in Aperia Mall includes restaurants and cafes like McDonald’s, Daily Grind, Warung Kampong and Ortus.

Lavender Food Square, which was next to Eminent Plaza, was one of the most popular food centres in Singapore. Both the food centre and Eminent Plaza had been demolished and replaced by ARC 380, a 16-storey freehold development with office and retail units. The new landmark at the junction of Lavender Street and Jalan Besar has just opened. Fittingly, the first retail tenants of ARC 380 are F&B outlets. Wanton Fu, a wanton mee stall, opened at ARC 380 sometime in July 2018.
