The area around Paya Lebar MRT used to be almost barren. Before 2014, there was only the SingPost Centre and City Plaza in the vicinity, which did not offer many food options to people working and living in the area.
Luckily, this problem was soon solved with the opening of ONEKM Mall (now called KINEX), and the completion of Paya Lebar Square. SingPost Centre also underwent a rejuvenation, making the Paya Lebar area a metropolis in the East.
But despite already having malls on every front of the MRT, the area has never ceased to grow. The latest addition, Paya Lebar Quarter Mall (PLQ Mall) opened its doors to the public on 30 August 2019, bringing even more food options to the area.
Armed with cash and an ravenous belly, I made my way down to PLQ Mall, to explore what this new food scene has to offer. Here are 10 food places that you should pay-a visit to at PLQ Mall:
1. Mom’s Touch
Mom’s Touch at PLQ Mall is the very first outlet from this Korean fried chicken brand on our sunny island. As its name suggests, the ideology behind Mom’s Touch is to remind diners of comforting homecooked food.
