Changi Airport (SIN), Singapore – the secret food hall of Terminal 3

By on June 25, 2015 in Singapore

I’m not a fan of Changi Airport, Singapore as every time I go there I have a problem. Last time I nearly didn’t get my car out of the terminal car park as there was nowhere that would take cash so I could top up my Netts Card, which has to be used to pay for parking (what is wrong with cash?).

However, there are always some interesting displays on….

What is this?

I have no idea what that was all about.

My problem this time was food as all the restaurants in the departure hall closed at 10:30 pm and I arrived at 10:30 pm… Plus, the Qatar Airlines check-in wasn’t open so I couldn’t dump my bags and go through security to where I knew (hoped) something would be open. I also had this problem back in February when I ended up stuck at the airport for 10 hours.

However, this time I made a little gem of a find, a food court in the basement of terminal 3. And this is a food court that seems to be hidden as there were no obvious signs in departures.

The place is called Kopitiam, and it has a range of food stalls selling Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, etc. and local food. It all looked pretty good, and much cheaper than the stuff served three floors up.

I had some Teochew Fried Kway Teow.

And a few Bao for “dessert”.

The pork Boa (not pictured above) I thought was particularly good.

All washed down with a lime juice and some China Fujian Oolong Tea.

All good prep for a 15-hour flight, and a handy find.
