8. Kiwami

Chinatown Point Food Kiwami

Kiwami may be a ramen restaurant, but don’t think their menu is limited to the standard ramen selections. While their tonkatsu ramen (from $12.80++) range is nevertheless enjoyable, hun Hokkaido Snow Crab Fried Rice on Tonkatsu Gravy ($13.80++) is an unconventional dish that is difficult to find elsewhere. It’s almost like enjoying two dishes in one; you can enjoy their smoky fried rice with bits of egg and lots of wok hei, then mix in the crabmeat gravy to get a kind of thick porridge.

What to eat at Chinatown Point

We love a dining destination that is easily accessible. Chinatown MRT station is not only the junction between the North-East Line and Downtown Line, the MRT station also connects you directly to Chinatown Point Mall. The mall has plenty of dining options that are not often found in Singapore, which justifies a visit all the more.
