Suntec City Fountain of Wealth

We have a love and hate relationship with Suntec City. We hate its carpark which is dark, low and has a confusing layout. But we love the Suntec City restaurants and food places.

HarriAnns Suntec City – HarriAnns Nonya Table’s latest outlet in Singapore


HarriAnns Suntec City is the third HarriAnns Nonya Table outlet to open in Singapore. With a history dating back to 1940, HarriAnns is now run by the third generation members of the family. These young Nonya aces are certainly going places since taking over the reins in 2014. Expanding out of their Tiong Bahru Market kiosk, they have opened up additional cafes in Bugis Junction, Ocean Financial Centre and Suntec. Their style of Peranakan food and nonya kuehs seem to have hit the right spot as their new outlet at Suntec City Mall was bustling when we visited.
