Read the bloggers’ experiences on their respective blog posts in the links below as you discover more on the unique culinary experience Food Republic seeks to bring out at 112 Katong:
MORE LOCAL FARE
Ever joined the long queue at Old Airport Road for the famous Cho Kee wanton noodles? Cho Kee Noodle brings the tried and proven 50-year-old recipe with a healthy twist to the wanton noodles. Mdm Soh, owner of Cho Kee Noodle, will be launching “coloured noodles”, like carrot and seaweed flavours, created especially for Food Republic 112 Katong.
The mini restaurants at Food Republic 112 Katong will also be taken up by seasoned powerhouses, like Pepper Lunch and Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice. Creating a sizzle the moment it arrived on the shore of Singapore, Pepper Lunch presented the novel concept of a DIY sizzling steak at affordable prices and is sure to capture the hearts, and stomach, of many. Recently crowned AsiaOne People’s Choice Awards 2010 Best Hawker, Wee Nam Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice is a national pride that has preserved the heritage of Hainanese Chicken Rice since 1989.
For a quick hunger fix, diners can look to Fortune Popiah for popular snacks such as the fulfilling Handmade Popiah and the crispy Kueh Pie Ti prepared on the spot upon order. Even the Popiah skin and Kueh Pie Ti cup is freshly made daily to ensure utmost satisfaction each and every time.
Diners can also look forward to other local veterans such as Yong Soon You Tiao, Thye Hong Fried Hokkien Mee, Fu Lin Tofu Yuen, Li Xin Teochew Fishball Noodles and Huat Huat BBQ Chicken Wing serving their sumptuous delights. With a food history of at least 15 years, these stalls have continued to bring their heritage of food to customers, which are bound to have them hooked and craving for more.
Being a cosmopolitan country who loves the variety of offers, customers can definitely expect popular international fare offered at Food Republic.
The Ju Shin Jung Korean Cuisine comes all the way from Korea, Seoul; serving authentic family-styled Korean food. Showcasing their fare in a food atrium environment for the first time, the family behind Ju Shin Jung has taken great efforts to infuse the Singaporean culture in dishes while retaining the Korean authenticity. Taking Singapore’s fast-paced lifestyle into consideration, Ju Shin Jung at Food Republic 112 Katong has been made “express” to minimise waiting time for the delicious dishes.
Famous stalls added to the melting pot include Dapur Padang, Formosa Delights, Bangkok Gem and Fragrant Hot Pot to delight the palettes of multi-racial customers.
PROFESSIONAL CHEFS’ KITCHEN
The new Food Republic 112 Katong will sport a new character, fusing fresh food and ingredients in its décor and theme to give a creative contemporary feel to the whole dining area. Be greeted by the rows of chefs as they indulge you with great tasting local delights made to perfection with their professional culinary skills. The kitchens are fitted with clear glass, which adds to the space and cleanliness while exuding an air of class. The clever use of the open kitchen concept allows patrons to see the chefs at work and the fresh ingredients used in whipping up the delicious food to double up as displays in the outlet. Observe chefs with their slick moves attested by years of honing as they churn out their creative creations, while learning a tip or two from them.
Expect to see fashion and design decorative items made from real food. This fashion-forward look, akin to popular television cooking programmes helmed by well-known celebrity chefs, will be familiar to worldly Singaporeans who are passionate about eating.
The professional kitchen outlook aims to create an inspiring dining experience, conveniently at Food Republic 112 Katong. Mr. Jeffrey Lim, Vice President of Food Republic said, “With this integrated concept, we believe diners will satisfy their palates with stellar hawker and restaurant fare under an open ambient setting that is classy and inviting.”
