Calling all foodies… Are you looking for ideas on what to eat in Yishun? This vibrant town has so much variety – from curries to seafood and fast food-that it can be hard to choose. Never fear; here are our five recommendations for restaurants that deliver in the area!
If it’s curry you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Japanese restaurant Monster Curry. Whether you’re in the mood for pork, chicken, or seafood, or even something meat-free, you’ll find it here. One of the most popular items on the menu is the Monster Combo Curry, and it’s easy to see why. Meant to be shared by two, this curry combines pork katsu and shabu-shabu plus fried fish and shrimp tempura, all topped with a generous helping of cheese. If you like combo dishes like that, you’ll also love the Best of Both Worlds curry with pork sausages, jumbo ebi (prawns), omelette, cheese, and tomato sauce.
Sinar Malay Seafood
When that craving for seafood calls, try the ever-popular Sinar Malay Seafood for all your favourite ocean-based dishes. The prawns and sotong here are highly recommended and available in a variety of dressings, from salted egg to cereal to pumpkin. You can also choose between deep-fried fish, fish heads, lala, and even a variety of seafood soups. If you’re in the mood for surf and turf, you’ll find beef and chicken dishes on the menu too.
On those days when you just want some hot, quick goodness, you can always order from your local Jinjja Chicken. You’ll find all your favourites in the Yishun branch, including the signature wings and drumsticks. Even if the deliciously seasoned chicken is what has you so addicted to this restaurant, we highly recommend you try the other Korean dishes on the menu, too. The kimbap, bibimbap, and jjajangmyeon make great alternatives to chicken, and you can’t go wrong with tteokbokki or kimchi as a side dish.
In the mood for some of your favourite comfort foods but don’t have time to cook? We recommend My Kampung. Here, you’ll find all the Singaporean dishes you like, as good as your mama makes them. Their chicken rice, laksa, and mee goreng give you the taste of a home cooked meal without any of the time spent hunched over an oven yourself. They also have hotplate chicken sets on the menu-black pepper, spring onion, stir-fried sambal, dry chilli, or sweet and sour, all served with rice and a fried egg.
Bluestar Islamic Banana Leaf
Last, but not least, is Bluestar Islamic Banana Leaf Restaurant, a halal eatery specialising in Indian-Malay cuisine. If you’re not sure what to eat in this Yishun restaurant, the biryanis here are hot, tangy, and aromatic with perfectly sticky rice and tender meat. Pair one with an earthy charcoal tandoor side dish or a rojak salad. Other dishes here include thosai, roti prata, and nasi kander.
