No Singaporean mall is complete without a food court and Jewel Changi Airport delivers affordable and tasty options in spades at Five Spice. Operated my Food Junction, the space is decked out in modern art, colourful murals and Peranakan tiles to create a laidback dining experience. It features local heritage food brands like Boon Tat Street BBQ seafood, where you can pick up favourites like chilli crab and sambal stingray; Fu Xiang Treasures, which started out in a coffee shop in the 1990s and is now famed for its curry chicken and Guan Chee HK Roast, a brand with over 30 years of experience selling roast duck and other meats.
You can also find offerings from around the region such as KL Damansara Chilli Ban Mee and Padang Lezat by IndoChili as well as more modern offerings like Chen's Mapo Tofu, a spinoff from Michelin-starred Shinsen Hanten by Chen Kentaro. If you notice that most of the dishes here pack a punch, you're not wrong. Five Spice has an on-going collaboration with Anthony The Spice Maker, a local spice epicurean with 33 years of spice blending experience. He makes easy-to-use premixes that you can pick up and bring home to try recreating these lip-smacking dishes.
