Here’s a secret for travellers to/from Singapore – there is a large food court with really cheap food in the B1 Basement of the Airport. It’s the “staff canteen”, but it’s actually open to the public too.
It’s a bit hard to find (before you go through the departure gates, try to find a lift in the far corner that goes down to B1 in Terminal 1). You can’t take luggage trolleys down there but rolling hand luggage is fine. The good news – the prices of the dishes are really cheap, the range is massive compared to the food stalls/restaurants in the main part of the airport and it serves all the local foods!
Like any holiday to Singapore, eating is a highlight. So what better way to end our recent trip than to go down to the food court and have our “last supper”!! We stuffed ourselves with as many local delights as possible before boarding our cheap Jetstar flight.
Good local prawn mee, local chicken rice, burbur chacha, chendol, rojak, coconut juice and many desserts with names I could not pronounce… until next time.
