Suntec City is one of Singapore’s largest shopping malls and entertainment spots boasting over 360 retail outlets and an abundance of dining options with restaurants, bars, food courts and snack stands in the lineup to satisfy just about anybody.
Besides being anchored by its world-class convention centre which hosts various events such as the COMEX IT Show and GAMESCOM ASIA annually, it also houses the iconic bronze Fountain of Wealth. The fountain embodies vibrancy in bringing our community together for the celebration of wealth and good health, and is nestled right smack at the centre among Suntec City’s five prestigious office towers.
After filtering and selecting several F&B places, here is my guide to the 13 best food places at Suntec City for a post-shopping refuel and recharge after you’ve explored the massive space it offers for your shopping and entertainment needs.
District 10 Bar & Grill has a small and cosy indoor dining space which is modern and contemporary coupled with an al fresco bar with Suntec City’s Fountain of Wealth acting as its backdrop.
The food served here leans towards Italian-European cuisine, and they specialise in dry-aged beef. The restaurant is well equipped with a European meat showcase and chiller for its dry-aged meat (which has a higher concentration of natural flavours).
You may want to indulge in any of their awesome bar bites like Golden Fried Potato Gnocchi (S$19) and Wagyu & Parmigiano Reggiano Croquettes (S$19) that will go well with your booze from the bar.
For main courses during lunch and dinner, take a pick from their six options ranging from Pan Roasted Seabass (S$28) to Spaghettini Aglio Olio (S$28).
Otherwise, go for their signature meats from the charcoal grill such as the 45-Days Home Dry Aged Corn Fed Traditional Fiorentina Steak (S$24 per 100g, min. order of 800g)— guaranteed to hit the spot for beef lovers!

One dish that I’ll highly recommend is the Yesan Tteokgalbi (S$25), which is a dish made of finely minced beef short rib that’s mixed with tteok (Korean rice cake), and then grilled to perfection. It tastes great and the texture is super tender, perfect for little ones and the elderly.
