Guide to Westgate’s Restaurants: The Dining Destination in the West


Ever felt so discouraged by the potential crowd in town that you just want to escape to a neighbourhood mall for a lovely meal? And when you think of neighbourhood mall, do you think of limited F&B options and mediocre food? Because Westgate will so totally change that perception.

Since its opening last year, Westgate has been the mall of the West, and it has such a comprehensive F&B tenant mix that it is impossible to run out of dining ideas! Residents from the vicinity might have already discovered its amazing directory of eateries and restaurants, and non-residents also have every reason to patronise. Names that were previously only found in town have expanded their empire to the West, alongside new concepts and fresh finds.

From 1 to 31 October 2014, be part of Westgate’s Dine-out where you receive S$10 worth of Food Republic dining vouchers when you spend S$100. Plus, enjoy exclusive weekday deals at participating F&B outlets. Refer to for more details.

There is definitely something at Westgate to satisfy every craving and palate. The spacious mall is well-connected by public transport and has a huge car park to boast, and it offers options for various budgets and occasions. Whether you just need a midday cuppa, or looking for a place to dine, here is our guide to Westgate’s restaurants – undisputedly the dining destination in the West.



The German joint that everyone is all too familiar with is now at Westgate too! But for the uninitiated, Brotzeit is an outlet for the discerning meat and beer lovers. It is not hard to understand why every outlet is perpetually packed. Toast to a great meal with a pint of beer and lots of meat and sausages, Brotzeit offers a sexy and laidback environment for you to loosen your tie for some after-work fun.

Who else loves their pork knuckle and meat platter as much as we do?

Ippudo Ramen


Ippudo’s ramen empire is showing no signs of slowing down as it opens more and more outlets across the globe, including New York City, Seoul, Shanghai and Sydney. Ippudo’s outpost at Westgate – its third outlet in Singapore – further cements Westgate as the dining destination in the West.

Start your meal with the Miso Dare Gyoza (S$8) and the legendary Steamed Pork Buns. Ippudo serves classic Hakata-style ramen: Choose from the Shiromaru Motoaji (S$15) – the original tonkotsu broth ramen; Karaka-Men (S$17), a strong flavoured bowl of ramen with curly noodles; or Akamaru Shin-Aji (S$15), Ippudo’s signature red bowl of tonkotsu ramen with miso paste and fragrant garlic oil.

MK Restaurants


Known for its Thai-style suki hotpot and roast duck, MK Restaurants is a household name and one of the most famous casual dining restaurants in Thailand.

The best thing is we no longer have to fly to Thailand just to satisfy our cravings. Along with its signature suki, you will also find an array of familiar dishes that are affordable.

We used to go to Bangkok for Nara Thai, for its fine Thai cuisine is truly deserving of all its credits and accolades. The well-known name is now in Singapore, and has an outlet at Westgate with both indoor and alfresco seating. Contemporary and sophisticated, the restaurant pays homage to evergreen Thai classics and favourites.

Its new snacks promotion (available on weekdays 3 – 8pm from 1 to 31 Oct 2014) makes the idea of midday nibbling so inviting, because at just S$20, you get to pick 3 yummy beer snacks from a tantalising list of 10 options. Our favourite has got to be the Gai Tord Kapi (deep fried chicken in traditional shrimp paste sauce).

Old Street BKT


A bowl of bak kut teh is comfort food for the soul. Over at Old Street Bak Kut Teh, the folks are dedicated to dishing out an inexpensive bowl of piping hot goodness. Besides the usual pork ribs soup, Old Street Bak Kut Teh also has a dry version of Bak Kut Teh (S$9.10 for small, S$11.70 for big). Together with a series of condiments that are free for you to mix, enjoy your peppery soup in the air-conditioned space.

The set menu (S$11.10 for normal pork ribs, or S$15 for premium loin ribs) comes with bak kut teh, you tiao (fried dough fritters), rice and a bowl of douhua (jellied bean curd) that is also made in-house.

One of the most underrated Japanese restaurants in Singapore is Ryoshisushi Ikeikemaru. Its name is quite a mouthful, but we’d totally master the pronunciation because it is one that we often recommend to our friends and fans. Nothing too fanciful about this place – just good ol’ reliable options that we always return to when we crave for sushi and sashimi.

The variations of donburi is definitely something to love, but look out for their new Aburi Salmon Roll (S$20 for 8 pcs) – promotion valid on weekdays from 1 to 31 Oct 2014 – that makes a fuss-free sushi fix.

Skinny Pizza


A popular favourite ever since it was born, Skinny Pizza is a chic concept that will spoil your taste buds with its endless options of, well, skinny pizzas. The pizzas here are a neat rendition, and the Squid Ink Pizza (S$29) is a crowd favourite!

We cannot have our meals without their side dishes. We are often torn between the Truffle Fries (S$9) and Sweet Potato Niblets (S$8), but rejoice! There is a trio appetiser option that makes our lives complete.

Tonkatsu Ma Maison


Tonkatsu by Ma Maison is our favourite tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore, and boy were we glad that it has opened a second outlet at Westgate. Gone are the days when we had to go all the way to town just to satisfy our tonkatsu cravings.

From the much-lauded Rosu Katsu (S$18.80) and Hire Katsu (S$19.80), to the Mameton Set (S$23.80) which comes with an assortment of your favourite tonkatsu and deep-fried ebi, every dish at Tonkatsu by Ma Maison is a masterpiece. We also highly recommend the Cheese Mille-feuille Katsu Set (S$24.80). Deep-fried to a glorious golden brown, this rendition of many thin layers of pork filled with oozy cheese is totally what dreams are made of.

Zaffron Kitchen Westgate


With a modern British-styled restaurant interior design, Zaffron Kitchen is opened by the folks behind Prata Wala and it has built a strong following among expats and locals alike. At Zaffron Kitchen, you can enjoy authentic Northern and Southern Indian cuisine in a chic and stylish setting. With air-con too! No more perspiring while downing your naan with teh tarik.

We sampled many dishes, and we really enjoyed the Chef Sampler for 2 (S$12) and Kashmiri Naan (S$5.50) – a sweet version with dried berries. But the star of the show has to be the very creamy and tangy Butter Chicken. And if you need your wines, you’d be happy to know that Zaffron is also a well-stocked gastro bar.
