Food Junction Westgate opens with 23 stalls, has teppanyaki, Bib Gourmand nasi padang & $3 deals

The West just keeps getting better. As if the Jurong East area isn’t enough of a bustling shopping and food scene already, Food Junction has opened its 8th location at Westgate. That brings 23 new stalls to the true-blue West side of Singapore (sorry CCK folks).

To top it all off, promotions and offers are currently ongoing to celebrate the food court chain’s 30th anniversary!

Food Junction Westgate - Sign

The newly opened food court is situated at Basement 1 and is hard to miss with its enormous entrance fronted by a large yellow-lit signage.

Food Junction Westgate - Seating

When I visited on the first night, many diners were already having dinner at this 1,000-square-metre location. The crowd size didn’t seem to be an issue as the food court seats up to 400.

Food Junction Westgate -Shanghai Fried Xiao Long Bao

The first stall that caught my eye was Shanghai Fried Xiao Long Bao, placed strategically left of the enormous entrance with a glass display giving a clear view of the staff hand-making each dumpling and bao.

Can’t miss their Shanghai Fried Dumplings (S$6.50 for 8pcs) if you’re a true-blue dumpling fanatic, but Shanghai Chives Dumplings (S$7.50 for 10pcs) makes a pretty strong case for itself. If you just need some quick grub, Shanghai Siew Mai (S$4.50 for 3pcs) or Steamed Dumplings (S$4.50 for 3pcs) should be enough.

Food Junction Westgate - HJH Maimunah Mini Stallfront

HJH Maimunah Mini might just be the star of the show. With this being their 9th outlet, is it really a surprise to learn that they (HJH Maimunah) have multiple Michelin Bib Gourmands?
