30% of The Seletar Mall will be dedicated to F&B

SINGAPORE - New family-oriented shopping mall, The Seletar Mall, will have a wide selection of food choices to suit every palette.

Targeted to open at the end of this year, around 30 per cent of the nett lettable area will be dedicated to food and beverage offerings.

The 6-storey development by Singapore Press Holdings Limited (SPH) and United Engineers Limited (UEL) has already signed up three key anchor tenants - FairPrice Finest, Foodfare and Shaw Cinema, and other offerings ranging from daily necessities to food and lifestyle.

"The selection of the food and beverage tenants is carefully chosen to meet the needs of the residents and working population in the surrounding estates such as Sengkang, Hougang, Punggol, Seletar and Ang Mo Kio," said SPH in a press statement on Monday.

Diners can take their pick from a variety of new-to-market and familiar local restaurants and eateries. Coffee lovers will have choices like The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Starbucks Coffee, O'Coffee Club, Ya Kun Family Café and Toast Box to get their daily caffeine boost.

Families can bond over lunch and dinner at well-known food and beverage restaurants such as Din Tai Fung, Swensen's, Paradise Inn, Fish & Co. and BALIThai, and all-time favourites and casual dining variety like McDonald's, Texas Chicken, Nene Chicken, Subway Sandwich, Han's, Let's EAT, A-One Claypot House, My Briyani House, Sushi Express and Umi Sushi.

The original Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at Victoria Street that serves up the peppery and aromatic soup will open its new outlet in a mall for the first time.

Let's EAT, a new concept eatery from EAT., will expand its current menu to include delicious Hainanese curry rice.

The famous Oki-Machi from Taiwan will also open its first outlet in Singapore at The Seletar Mall. The self-made Japanese charcoal grilled muah-chee is a simple yet delicate dish that becomes chewy and delectable after being meticulously grilled by skilled chefs and complements perfectly with choices of either sweet or savoury sauces.

On top of these, shoppers will enjoy an array of quick bites and snacks at food kiosks and bakeries, including Proofer Boulangerie, Prima Deli, Jollibean, Ritz Apple Strudel & Pastry, Polar Puffs & Cakes, Yogurt Story and Swee Heng 1989 Classic.

Being a family-oriented mall, shoppers and diners can also look forward to more offerings and activities that are catered to families and children. Addressing the needs of the residents at the vicinity who are mainly young couples and parents with young kids, SPH said there will be tuition and learning centres that offer enrichment courses ranging from languages to art and music at Level 4. There are also child-friendly facilities such as the nursery rooms, changing stations and a play area at the roof garden for endless fun and adventure.
