Ambience at Food Junction Great World
The newly renovated Food Junction has a charming train-themed interior inspired by Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Food stalls look like old-school train carriages while walkways resemble train platforms. At the centre of attention is a "train track" illuminated by a LED digital ceiling that stretches across 22 metres.
This digital installation plays a mini show periodically with a new display every three months; keep an ear out for the 'choo choo' steam train sound that indicates when the video projection will start.
Food at Food Junction Great World
The food court offers a mix of food stalls and mini restaurants that have their own designated seating areas.
This mini restaurant's specialties include Crispy Pork Knuckle and Guiness Braised Beef Cheeks with Mashed Potato ($18.90). I tried the latter which gets two thumbs up! The tender beef almost fell apart with a fork and didn't have the characteristically intense beefy taste of that cut.
They also have cold German draft available all day, sausage platters and bar bites.
Founded by former Mediacorp artiste Cassandra See, this mini restaurant offers fusion homecooked-style Korean dishes as well as soju and makgeolli cocktails.
Their Signature Pork Collagen Soup with Rice ($8.90) had a comforting, "mum's cooking" taste as promised, with a nourishing full-bodied flavour and rich texture.
Before the renovation, this mini restaurant would always have a snaking queue every time I passed by, and it's no wonder why! Helmed by native Vietnamese staff, the stall has a loyal following for its authentic and healthy food.
Our favourite dish of the bunch, the Hanoi BBQ Pork Noodles ($8.80) came with assorted meats that were well-marinated and had a satisfying smoky flavour. It paired perfectly with the light and refreshing noodles which had a subtle crunch and tang.
What The Fish
Ordering the trendy giant grilled fish on a hotplate is quite the commitment, but that's not the case here as this stall offers single serving grilled fish for solo diners.
The Sea Bass Half Fish in Golden Tantalising Punch ($12.80) has fresh and tender fish simmering in a flavourful pumpkin and sauerkraut sauce that packed a spicy punch.
Putian Heng Hwa Cuisine
This Putien Xinghua specialty stall offers comfort food like Putian Lor Mee ($6.90) and Heng Hwa Red Rice Wine Claypot Chicken ($12) .
Queen of Wok
You can now enjoy tze char-style dishes and fish head steamboat in the air-conditioned comfort of this food court's mini restaurant. Try the Red Grouper Fish Head Mini Hotpot ($28 for 1 - 2 pax) and Signature Prawn Paste Chicken ($8) .
This new concept by BreadTalk offers modern renditions of traditional beverages and desserts.
For something Insta-worthy, try Coco Cloud ($4.50), a coconut drink that has a dreamy cloud-like look. Other signature menu items are Kopi Slush and OG Lemon Punch ($3.60).
The food court is also home to more new and returning stalls and mini restaurants including the halal-certified stalls Nuodle (hand-pulled la mian) and Monster Chilli (Chinese cuisine including mala).
Food Junction at Great World is located at #03-116, 1 Kim Seng Promenade and opening hours are from 10am to 10pm daily.
