It aims to overturn old perceptions of food court dining by accentuating each stall’s unique character in order to create a holistic dining culture with excellent service.

The concept allows the entire package of scent, sound, sight and social identity to complete the dining experience of patrons. Here is a glimpse of the outlet at VivoCity, Singapore.

‘Bakmi Jakarta’ from Java Kitchen is in my menu for the day. Priced at only SGD5, the noodle dish taste similar as the Sarawak Kolo Mee.

The savoury flavours of mushrooms and chicken meat brings out the best of the noodle. Digging deep down into the noodle is a pool of wet seasoning at the bottom of the bowl. The amount of vegetable is sufficient though I wish for more. The soup however is soulless, heavy in pepper and ajinomoto – a distinct familiar taste found even back home in the Malaysian food stalls.

As a wrap up, the main attraction of the outlet is the ambient setting. It’s a great cultural attraction where you experience cultural diversity of the South-East Asian region. Getting there is easy as the place, VivoCity (the largest shopping mall in Singapore) is conveniently accessible via public transportion – MRT, bus, taxi and car.
