As a healthier option among heavy and oily ramen broths, Kanshoku Ramen Bar prides itself on not using additional MSG or preservatives. Kanshoku translates literally to ‘finish food’, something you’ll definitely do given how delicious Kanshoku’s Hakata ramen offerings are! Dressed with minimal toppings, the tonkotsu pork broth is lighter than its creamier counterparts. Don’t forget to add an ajitama egg to complete your bowl of ramen. Kanshoku continually innovates to let fans experience different flavours and currently offers seven types of ramen for you to pick from!

Must-try: Their signature Truffle Ramen Dry ($16.90) is your answer to good food in Yishun! Served with shaved Italian truffle and doused in truffle oil, the dish is completed with caramelised chashu slices and sous vide egg.

Love Korean snacks and dishes? Inspired by South Korea’s culture of street food and doing things quickly, JinJja Chicken is quickly spreading its own idea of fast and casual eating through its Northpoint City food store. By pairing its yummy chicken with traditional Korean fares like jjamPong and kimbap, JinJja Chicken strives to provide options beyond chicken burgers and sandwiches. Far from the norm of most Korean Fried Chicken outlets, JinJja Chicken has also gone the extra mile of ensuring Halal Certification for Muslim customers!

Must-try: The 18 Pieces Wing combo ($19.90) comes highly recommended! Choose from three different flavours: Soy Garlic, Yang Nyeom and Monster. Unlike most of the competition, the wings provide a lip-smacking crunch by retaining its juiciness as you munch on the well-seasoned skin. For those feeling up to it, take on the Monster sauce chicken for a spicy zing.

A light, golden-brown batter envelopes each fillet and tantalizes the taste buds with its succulent flesh. Also, Big Fish Small Fish serves customers with generous thinly-sliced crisps. Choose from four mouthwatering types of fish and seven unique sauces to dip your crisps in!

Must-try: Out of all the good food in Yishun, the Dory Fish ($7.90) (Shopee voucher only viewable on mobile) is definitely value-for-money. The chunky fillet possesses creamy tender flesh wrapped in a satisfyingly crunchy batter casing. These two parts combined, deliver a satisfying experience every time.

Up for traditional Taiwanese dishes? Check out Feng Food, a Northpoint City food restaurant dedicated to serving authentic Hakka food! Ambience-wise, the restaurant’s attention to decor is impressive. The traditional decor gives the place a delightful charm not seen even in high-end Chinese restaurants. From Hakka-style Braised Meat Rice to Pork Wontons, you’ll be hard pressed to find more affordable Taiwanese dishes than the offerings at Feng Food.

Must-try: Braised Beef Knife-shaved Noodles ($10.80) is a must try Northpoint City food dish!

The pork chop slices are also glazed with a flavourful marinade that pairs well with the succulent pork meat.

Must-try: If you could only try one dish here, we recommend the Grilled Chicken Chop ($11.50). The grilled meat of the chicken chop remains tender and the hefty serving of black pepper sauce complements its smoky taste. Moreover, the spaghetti is al-dente and extremely flavourful because of the creamy base, ranking itself among dedicated pasta chains.

We all love a good deal when it comes to affordable Japanese cuisine and Akimitsu (voucher only viewable on mobile) is certainly the best of the bunch! As one of the best restaurants for Japanese food at Northpoint City, Akimitsu is a critically-acclaimed tendon shop that keeps its tasty tempura dishes affordable for the masses.

Must-try: It goes without saying that you have to try Akimitsu’s Signature Tendon ($14.90)! For its price, you’re served a smattering of fresh ingredients that include fresh prawns and assorted vegetables. The one thing that sours a tendon bowl experience is soggy tempura.

Despite being new to the Northpoint City food ecosystem, Tai Cheong Bakery needs no introduction! Since 1935, Tai Cheong Bakery has shaped the Cantonese pastry scene with its care towards time-honoured traditional recipes. As each delicacy is handmade, you’re guaranteed an authentic Hong Kong taste with their classic delights!

Must-try: If it wasn’t obvious enough, we’re huge fans of Tai Cheong’s world famous Egg Tarts ($1.90)! Upon sinking your teeth into the crumbly snack, you’ll be greeted with a fragrant buttery taste of the crumbly crust. This in turn sets the stage for the eggy sweetness of the custard that’ll instantly win you over. One golden tip is to hang around the bakery so you can snag a batch of freshly-made ones straight from the oven!

10. Fluff Stack

Never had a chance to experience the jiggly eye-candy of the best souffle pancakes? Why not check out Fluff Stack’s pillowy soft soufflé pancakes! Far from just being another Instagram-worthy cafe with good food in Yishun, Fluff Stack changes things up by allowing you to experiment with unique toppings including Chantilly Cream and Honey Butter! We also applaud Fluff Stack for upping the ante and expanding upon their menu to include newer pancake flavours like Black Forest and Tiramisu!

Must-try: Out of all the flavours, we feel the Salted Caramel Soufflé Pancakes ($14.50) possess the most depth! Yes, they’re all meant to be sweet treats that are a feast for the eyes but the savoury goodness of salted caramel is a fine touch to the already sugary dessert. Additionally, the crushed hazelnuts, mascarpone creme and cheese foam further complement the dish by offering a more varied mouthfeel with each bite!

Sun – Thur: 11am – 9pm

If you’re a cake and pie fan, you certainly have to try Northpoint City food stores like Chateraise!

Must-try: If you could only try one, do choose the Legendary Fresh Cream Cake ($5.10).
