Conveniently located next to Boon Lay MRT Station, Jurong Point might be a frequent haunt amongst the West-siders but not so much amongst those who reside elsewhere.
Jurong Point is home to an extensive variety of Asian restaurants so spectacular that you will find yourselves beyond spoilt for choice!
The mall has a few precincts under its roof, namely Mongkok, Korean Street, Shokutsu Ten, Halal Delights and Malaysia Boleh! Each designated area has successfully mimicked the characteristics of its intended destination and boy, we were thoroughly impressed.
Now, even those living out of the West have a reason to visit Jurong Point. From now till Thursday, 31st December 2015, dine at selected participating restaurants to collect Food Prints in your Jurong Point Passport and stand a chance to win a pair of return tickets to Dubai, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and even Los Angeles! Other attractive prizes such as Samsonite luggage bags and Jurong Point gift vouchers are up for grabs too.
Best of Asian Food Under One Roof at Jurong Point? Yes, we approve.
To begin, all you have to do is to pick up a “passport” from the Information Counter, and that is when you can begin on an epicurean journey while accumulating your “immigration stamps” from the various precincts.
We promise there are so many restaurants to choose from that participating in the contest is too easy. All you have to do is to dine at one every day, and you might just be among the lucky ones to jet off for a real holiday.
WIN TWO RETURN AIR TICKETS TO HONG KONG
Chinese neon-lit signboards lined up along the indoor streets of Jurong Point’s Mongkok precinct instantly teleported us to Hong Kong. We love the bustling atmosphere and as odd as it sounds, the high human traffic of this part of Jurong Point sure reminded us of the ever-crowded Mongkok – with a familiar sense of comfort, minus the rowdiness, of course.
There are three participating restaurants in the Mongkok precinct – Central Hong Kong Cafe, Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao and Legendary Hong Kong.
Spend a minimum of S$50 at each of the above mentioned tenants and you will receive a stamp. Collect six stamps and you will stand a chance to win a pair of return tickets to Hong Kong.
Diners at Legendary Hong Kong restaurant also receive either a Pineapple Bun, Hot Milk Tea or a Hot Honey Pomelo Beverage on the house when you spend at least S$50.
Now, you really have to try Legendary Hong Kong’s aromatic succulent Roasted London Duck (half – S$30++, whole S$58++). Crispy fragrant skin with a tender juicy flesh, it is a definite must-order for all fans of Hong Kong fare. We also love how its interiors and decors are a true replica of Hong Kong’s traditional cha caan tengs (minus the rude service).
WIN TWO RETURN AIR TICKETS TO KOREA
Annyeong Haseyo! Everyone here is a fan of Korean cuisine, yes? Korbi Grill, Chef’s Noodle, Seoul Garden and Seoul Garden Hotspot from Jurong Point’s Korea Street are too offering diners the opportunity to feast your way to Korea.
Accumulate a stamp on your Jurong Point Passport when you spend S$50 and the collection of six stamps will grant you the opportunity to be whisked to Korea with your loved one.
The popular Korbi Grill’s Grilled Beef Ribeye Steak (180 grams – S$21.90++, 250 grams – S$25.90++) is grilled on a 320°C hot lava stone, and comes with a choice of side dish and either a spicy bulgogi sauce or Korean mushroom sauce.
Some other options are Chef’s Noodle’s signature Chef’s Gukso Beef Broth (S$13.90++) and Seoul Garden Hotpot’s Premium Seafood Hotpot with Kimchi Jigae Soup Base (S$16.90++). The former is a piping hot bowl of Guksoo noodles served in a mildly peppery beef broth topped with a myriad of vegetables and pork bulgogi, while the latter comprises a superior selection of seafood and glass noodles served in kimchi soup.
Even if you are unable to collect all six stamps, fret not. The participating Korean restaurants will still be rewarding enthusiastic diners with every stamp collected.
With a minimum spend of S$50, Chef’s Noodle will reward customers with a free SSAM Wrap (choose from bulgogi, spicy pork and pork belly), while Korbi Grill is giving away a complimentary Calamari and Seoul Garden Hotspot will treat diners a dish of Deep-fried Wing Sticks with Spicy Coating.
WIN TWO RETURN AIR TICKETS TO JAPAN
Inspired by the bustling district of Ginza in Tokyo, Jurong Point’s Shokutsu Ten is a Japanese food paradise. This Japanese Street will have you all enthralled by the mouthwatering selection of gourmet restaurants surrounded by eye-catching billboards, traditional placards, wooden pushcarts and whatnot.
Our love for hotpots never die, even more so when we’ve got some really sweet collagen broth over at Shabu Tontei. A minimum of two diners is required for each Shabu Shabu set, and the set comes with generous servings of premium meat cuts, vegetables and side dishes.
To collect your passport spend, the minimum spend is S$50, and are applicable at Ichiban Boshi, Kabe No Ana Japanese Pasta, Kuishin Bo Authentic Japanese Buffet, Kuriya Japanese Market, Men-ichi Japanese Ramen, Shabu Tontei or Wadori.
Additionally, Shokutsu Ten Japanese Food Street is giving away an exclusive sashimi plate set to shoppers with a minimum spend of S$60 in a single same-day receipt (redeem this at the Customer Service Counters).
Spend S$12 at Kuriya Japanese Market and receive a free platter of three pieces salmon sashimi.
WIN A CLUB MED CHERATING TRIP FOR TWO
Malaysia Boleh! might just be the most popular precinct with its authentic options of traditional Malaysian foods such as Penang Char Kuay Teow and Malaysian Bak Ku Teh. All the hawkers hail from Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru, and it is also worth mentioning that Malaysia Boleh! resembles an old-school coffee shop, with the exception that it actually has the facility of a blasting air-conditioning and clean seats.
Busy foodies no longer have to drive or fly across the border to satisfy their cravings for one of the world’s best cuisines; we could hardly believe our eyes when we saw the stalls of Petaling Street Famous Claypot Chicken Rice (small – S$5, big – S$8) and Klang Bak Ku Teh (small – S$5, big – S$8)!
Every vendor in Malaysia Boleh! is participating in Best of Asian Food Under One Roof. Unlike the other precincts, accumulating of points is a tad easier at Malaysia Boleh!. Simply spend $20 with a maximum of 5 single same-day receipts and your Jurong Point Passport will receive a stamp. The accumulation of eight stamps will have you standing a chance to win a trip for two to Malaysia’s Club Med Cherating – Malaysia’s best full-board beach resort.
WIN TWO RETURN AIR TICKETS TO DUBAI
Our dearest Muslim friends are too in a treat with Jurong Point’s four Halal-Certified participating restaurants i.e. Ayam Penyet RIA, Fish & Co., Prata Wala and Swensen’s. Spend S$50 in a single receipt and a total of six stamps will have you enrolled into the lucky draw, where you could possibly win two return airplane tickets to Dubai.
Fish & Co. is offering a value-for-money festive promotion (from 18 November onwards) called A Jolly Seafood Fare.
Diners, be prepared for a hearty seafood cream-based pot, hot fudge cake with vanilla ice-cream, and two refreshing mocktails at just S$59.95++ for two pax. We were impressed by the generous amount of mussels, prawns and scallops in the baked ceramic dish.
Swensen’s is also launching dishes exclusively created for this festive season. Savour the Indonesian-inspired Chicken Istimewa (S$15.90++) in November and the fusion Turkey Burger (S$17.90++) in December.
